PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — From the outside, it looked like quarterback Demarques Singleton Jr. and the Grant Generals had a nearly perfect night against Cleveland last Friday.

Singleton, in a 40-0 victory, completed 10-of-11 passes for 317 yards and 4 touchdowns while also rushing for 63 yards and a score.

But, from within the Generals’ locker room, Singleton said the team could’ve done more.

“We kind of went into the game knowing we were gonna dominate,” Singleton, our week 3 KOIN 6 Blitz Player of the Week said. “So we got a little lackadaisical. But we should have beat them by like 70. But we got the job done.”

Singleton knows, after averaging 31.7 yards per completion, that he couldn’t have played like he did on his own.

“We are really deep in receivers,” Singleton said. “I have one of the best running backs in the state and the line has done what they need to do to give me time so I can make plays and do my part for the team.”

It doesn’t hurt having Damon Hickock and Saivon Brown in his playing arsenal, two receivers who combined for 5 catches, 267 yards and 4 touchdowns. Both players were named honorable mention players of the week.

“My receivers are everything every game,” Singleton said. “I do my part and they finish the rest by being playmakers.”

Who is he? Singleton is a 5-foot-11, 192-pound senior quarterback for the Generals.

The stats:  Singleton completed 10-of-11 passes for 317 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also rushed 6 times for 63 yards and a touchdown.

He said it: “Friday nights are what I look forward to with my brothers and I go out there and do what Demarques Singleton Jr. does.”
