The game, which was broadcast on ESPN2, was a bounce-back win for the Wildcats, who lost at Jefferson eight days ago. But tonight Stockton would not be denied. He threw for 382 yards and ran for 105. Stockton’s total of 487 yards is not an uncommon performance for him. 

“As a runner, Stockton knows how to dissect defenses and can take off the second he sees an opening. He’s an excellent runner and moves well for someone at 220-pounds. He’s quicker than most linebackers at the next level and he’s tough to bring down by one defensive back by himself,” Dawg Post recruiting expert Matt DeBary said in describing Stockton’s ability to run the ball.
