McCullough played a part in all five of LeBlond’s first-quarter touchdowns that easily built a lead that helped the Golden Eagles improve to 2-0.

“We remember a time we were on the other side of the scoreboard,” McCullough said. “We have worked hard for four years, us seniors, and we have accomplished a lot. I know what it is like. You have got to keep working.

“Our progress since we were freshmen. Our sophomore year, up in Maryville, we lost by 75 or something like that. To be on the other side is great. All that hard work paid off.”

LeBlond’s 69 points is the most racked up in a decade, erasing a mark that was set last week in a 64-30 victory against AC Prep. The 133 points in two games is more than the Eagles scored in all of in a 1-9 2010 campaign — McCullough’s freshman season.

It wasn’t that long ago the Bishop LeBlond quarterback was on the other end of the kind of game he orchestrated. The senior southpaw accounted for six touchdowns in a 69-6 drubbing at Eagle Stadium.
