The Crimson Tide (4-0) had run only four offensive snaps before they had a 20-0 lead.

“We really train hard and we have speed and we really try to use that speed to an advantage by outflanking teams,’’ Everett coach Rob DiLoreto said. “We try to get the ball into our playmakers hands. That’s what I try to do as a coach. Be smart, know who our players are and find ways to get them the ball.”

His playmakers had a head start Friday.

Pedro Rodrigues picked up the squibbed opening kickoff and cut left, taking it to the house for a 65-yard touchdown. On the ensuing Everett kickoff, he forced a fumble to put the Crimson Tide right back in business. Jayden Clerveaux tacked on two plays later with a 30-yard touchdown run.

From there it wasn’t if — but how fast — the Tide could put points on the board.

After a three and out from Classical (3-2), Cam Mohamed took the Tide’s fourth snap of the game for a 21-yard touchdown run, running through a facemask on his way to paydirt.

Following a safety, Mohamed hauled in a screen pass from Karmarri Ellerbe 44 yards to the house two possessions later to make it 30-0. Syeed Gibbs made it 37-0 before the half with a 13-yard end around for a touchdown.

With star playmakers such as Mohamed, Clerveaux and Ellerbe — not to mention BC commit Ismael Zamor — any one of them could go off for a big performance on a weekly basis.

“We plan to score one touchdown every game — each of us,” Mohamed said. “We work hard every day, we lift and we work on our legs a lot, we run a lot. We’re a running team and when that all comes together, that’s what makes us explosive. It can be any one of us.”

Everett got one more score in the second half when senior defensive lineman Jayden Biggi blocked a punt, scooped it up and rumbled 20 yards for a touchdown.
