Ocean City High School senior Brandon Lashley broke two school records Thursday night.

In the Red Raiders’ 35-0 win over Washington Township in a regional crossover game, Lashley returned an interception 103 yards for a score, the longest in school history.

It was one of four touchdowns he had on the game. His three touchdown receptions, all from quarterback Ian Aungst, gave him 13 on the season, another school record.

“He’s having an incredible season,” Ocean City coach Kevin Smith said. “He’s such a hard worker.”

Lashley has a verbal commitment to play NCAA Division I baseball at Stony Brook University in 2020. Still, it’s no surprise to Smith that Lashley is this talented on the football field, too.

“I’m just impressed he can be this committed to football,” Smith said. “A lot of kids would worry about getting hurt. The kid just loves sports.”

Running back Kevin King scored Ocean City’s other touchdown on a 2-yard run.

Freshman kicker Brendan McGonigle made all five extra-point attempts.

The Red Raiders (4-5) finished their season on Thanksgiving against Pleasantville.
