The Moorpark College football team's second-half comeback Saturday was led by quarterback Zach Shultis, who started for the injured Dalton Botts and completed 30-of-52 passing for 340 yards and three touchdowns.
"Everyone was surprised, but I wasn't," said coach Jim Bittner. "I've been working with the guy since the spring. I knew he was completely capable.
"He's very smart and has good feet."
Botts, who completed 14-of-28 passing for 150 yards and three TDs in the Sept. 4 loss to Ventura, will find himself in a competition when he returns from injury.
"Now it's going to be a battle between him and Dalton," said Bittner.
