Jack Dyett has made the most of every moment of his senior season on the varsity football team at Brentwood School. On Sunday, he found out the fun’s not over yet.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound wide receiver and defensive end from the Huntington neighborhood was the star of last Friday’s Gold Coast League finale, catching six passes for 85 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown reception, in the Eagles’ 40-20 win versus Viewpoint.

Dyett  also made an impact on defense and special teams with four tackles, two pass deflections and a blocked field goal.

The Dartmouth commit has played in eight games (he was injured for two), accounting for 826 yards in total offense, with a team-leading 49 catches for 625 yards and six touchdowns. On ‘D’ he has 43 tackles (nine for losses) and four sacks. He even played a game at quarterback, throwing for two scores in a 37-25 win.

“Jack’s the ultimate leader,” Coach Jake Ford said. “He plays both ways, rarely comes off the field, there’s nothing he can’t do.”

Brentwood opens the CIF-SS Division 11 playoffs Friday night.
