A couple of Legion standouts from Anchorage have proven to be effective football players, too.

South's Landon Drumm and West's Sam Zieserl both made big plays over the weekend in the Cook Inlet Conference.

Drumm, a wide receiver in football and outfielder in baseball, made six catches for 157 yards and a touchdown in a 42-14 loss to East.

Drumm hauled in an 88-yard score in highlight-reel fashion as quarterback Cole Yarrington threw the ball from near his own goal line and hit Drumm in stride at the 30. That’s when Drumm turned on the jets to leave the East defensive back in his dust.

Drumm was responsible for the lion’s share of Yarrington’s 185 passing yards.

For West, Zieserl played plays on special teams and defense.

He returned the second half's opening kickoff 31 yards to kick start a scoring drive that put the Eagles up three scores en route to a 34-20 win over Lathrop.

Zieserl, an outfielder on the baseball field, tracked down an interception, one of five for West defense.

Zieserl also broke up a fourth-down pass in the end zone to save a TD.
