At 6-foot-3, 290 pounds Everett High senior offensive and defensive lineman Jayden Biggi is a hard body to move.
In the Crimson Tide’s latest victory, Biggi, a four-year player, was front and center in the effort, helping to open up huge running lanes for his teammates to get through. With his help, the Tide ran it into the end zone five times against Somerville.
An honor roll student, and self-proclaimed “quiet leader”, Biggi, one of the Tides seven team captains, prefers to lead with his actions rather than his vocals.
The Crimson Tide jumped on visiting Somerville early in their home-opener Friday, rushing the ball with ease en route to a thorough 38-6 Greater Boston League victory.
Powered by five rushing touchdowns, two from senior running back J.C. Clerveaux, including a thrilling 49-yard score in the first half, the Tide (2-0) looked sharp offensively.
With two passing touchdowns leading the way in the team’s first win, and a stable of runners leading the way in their triumph over Somerville, the Tide showcased an ability to be an all-around offense, able to run and pass effectively to pick up a W.
