San Marcos quarterback throws for 527 yards and five touchdowns.

— Will Freed may be the new kid in school, but he’s making a case to be the most popular student at San Marcos High.

The 6-foot-2 junior quarterback had his best game since transferring from Carlsbad on Friday night as the Knights overcame an early 10-point deficit to post a 51-46 nonleague victory over winless Westview.

The game was not decided until the final minute as Westview got a 4-yard touchdown run by quarterback Nate Ketteringham and a 43-yard touchdown pass from Ketteringham to Ben Tatzlaff with 1:44 to play.

Freed was 16 of 18 passing in the first half as he ignited a string of 31 consecutive points after Westview (0-3) had taken a 13-3 lead after the first quarter. He finished 31 of 36 for 527 yards and five touchdowns, including strikes of 70 and 71 yards to Isiah Hennie. Freed also rushed for one touchdown for the Knights (2-1).

Hennie caught 12 passes for 278 yards and Tyler Nix had seven catches for 104 yards.

Ketteringham, who also rushed for 85 yards, completed 18 of 27 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for three scores.

After getting six first downs in the first half, the Wolverines had 15 in the second half. San Marcos, which overcame 120 yards in penalties, including six personal fouls, had 25 first downs.
