South Warren senior Luke Burton found several different paths to the end zone in Friday’s 47-13 win over visiting South Oldham in the Class 5A state quarterfinals.

Burton made his first trip by hauling in a 34-yard touchdown reception from Caden Veltkamp. Just 18 seconds later, Burton was back in the end zone after returning a fumble 36 yards for a score.

“I think it gave us some momentum – even more momentum – and just kept us going,” Burton said of his fumble recovery for a score.

To cap off his three-TD second quarter, Burton finished off a drive with a 1-yard touchdown run. He had five tackles on defense.

South Warren will be on the road for the Class 5A state semifinals Friday at Woodford County.
