Bellarmine College Prep's Kristoffer Olugbode settled under the ball on the opening kickoff Friday night against San Leandro and whiffed.

No problem.

The ball bounced right back to him, and Olugbode then broke off an 83-yard return, blasting right past the coverage for a touchdown. Olugbode added two rushing touchdowns as the Bells hammered the Pirates 38-7 at San Jose City College in the season opener for both teams.

"When I tried to catch it, I didn't find the ball," Olugbode said. "I dropped the ball, it kicked up in the air and I was fortunate enough to get it. My guys were able to block for me, and I was able to take it to the house.

"The other team was trying to get the ball, so everyone was over-pursuing. I just had to beat one guy, and it was off to the races."

Olugbode added 111 yards in 11 carries in just three quarters of work.

"They're a ridiculous team," San Leandro coach Brad Bowers said. "They execute their offense, their defense, they execute things perfectly."

But a return by SSF senior Vince Brown into Bruins' territory on the ensuing kickoff enabled the Warriors (1-0) to start the game-winning drive at the Santa Clara 40.
