Dutchtown sophomore quarterback K’lin Epps had a hard time deciding whether his performance against Spalding or Riverdale was better. After seeing the stats, one could understand why.

On Sept. 20, Epps completed 8-of-10 passes for 126 yards and a touchdown in a 49-28 win over Riverdale. Then a week later, the 6-foot-1 quarterback went 14-of-19 with 364 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-3 victory against Spalding.

“Riverdale and Spalding were my best games because I didn’t make any mistakes and I was very consistent with all of my throws,” Epps said.

Since then, Epps’ completion percentage hasn’t been as high but he was impressive against Eagle’s Landing with 256 passing yards and three touchdowns despite a 57-27 loss to the Golden Eagles on Oct. 11.

He is also on his way to capturing a personal goal of passing for at least 15 TD since he currently has 12 touchdown passes. But outside of that Epps wants the team to be successful.

“Whatever coach [Kevin Jones] needs me to do I will do it for my team,” Epps said.

Epps likes to watch Clemson’s Tajh Boyd and the Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck play.

“I met Boyd and Luck is a pretty big guy like me and able to do the same things I’m able to do,” he said.

After the football season ends, Epps plans to join the basketball team.
