The North Broward Prep football team defeated Coral Springs Charter 54-32 for the second straight year on Senior Night.
On Thursday, sophomore Deandre Desinor had a historic performance for the Eagles with seven touchdowns, which set a school record previously held by Kevin Austin Jr. He also broke the record for most rushing yards in a game with 301, rushing touchdowns with five and total yards with 477.
“He’s a special kid and is extremely talented,” said Head Coach Rex Nottage. “He runs extremely well and has great vision. I think his off-season training has really shown from last year to this. He has such a bright future ahead of him.”
