HALEDON – The Garfield Boilermakers are certainly not bereft when it comes to multiple offensive standouts. Alex Victorino, Kevin Buron, Aveon Irving, Rickey Reyes and Steven Nolasco are among the many Garfield offensive threats.
All made an impact, with Buron and Irving scoring two touchdowns apiece and Victorino throwing three scoring strikes in the Boilermakers’ NJIC Colonial Division, 47-12, victory over Manchester on Saturday. Garfield is off to a 4-0 start for the first time since 1999.
A senior wide receiver and cornerback who also plays basketball and baseball, Buron is a returning All-North Jersey selection who has a penchant for coming up with the big play. He caught three passes for 43 yards and had a 10-yard touchdown reception from Victorino to account for the first Garfield touchdown only 3:42 into the game.
“We can never be satisfied with what we accomplished. We started out a little slow and that could cost us in the future,” said Buron, who leads an attack that averages more than 34 points per game. “We have to expect every team to come at us just as hard as Manchester did today. We can’t take any plays or drives off; we have to keep pushing ourselves to get better in every phase of the game every single week.”
