Murrieta Valley’s standout wide receiver, Marquis Spiker, a University of Washington verbal commit, tied an Inland record with 6 TD catches against Redlands Friday, Sept. 1. The Nighthawks 49-13 win over the Terriers was much needed after falling in Zero Week to the Santiago Sharks and with the arm of junior QB Hank Bachmeier behind him, Spiker led all receivers with 13 receptions for 194 yards, not to mention his six TDs. Spiker’s end zone catches tied a record set by Arlington’s Ronnie Thomas (1991) and Nuview Bridge’s Dane Futrell (2011). Spiker scored on Bachmeier TD throws of 7, 5, 10, 9, 30 and 36 yards

“Everything you saw from him was self-explanatory,” said Bachmeier, who was 25-of-31 for 338 yards on the night. “He’s a five-tool receiver and he shows you why he is going to be a threat as a husky next year. He was tremendous.”
