This week's Leaderboard Legends (9-26-16)
OCVarsity is starting something new this season to recognize the players who have done exceptional work on the field.
It's our version of handing out a game ball or helmet sticker.
We're calling it the OCVarsity Leaderboard Legends of the week.
Every team in the county can nominate a player (or players) for this weekly honor.
The only rule: the player(s) nominated must have current stats on the OCVarsity leaderboards. (Coaches and teams have until 4 p.m. each Monday to update their stats.)
How do you nominate a player? It's easy.
A coach or coaching staff can send a player's name, grade and position via Twitter to Kenny Connolly (@KConnolly89). Please include the hash tag #ocvlegend.
We'll announce the names of the weekly Leaderboard Legends on Monday evening.
Here are this week's OCV Leaderboard Legends:
LEADERBOARD LEGEND: RUNNING BACKS
Dylan Do, La Quinta
How about them Aztecs? La Quinta is off to its best start in six seasons, improving its record to 3-1 after securing a 27-20 win over Garey of Pomona on Friday night. The Aztecs used a 90-yard fourth-quarter scoring drive to break a 20-20 stalemate, and got a bulk of the yardage on the ground. Do racked up 194 yards rushing on only 12 carries, and added a pair of touchdown runs to cap a dazzling performance. With Tam Le running for 63 yards and Kyle Nguyen reeling off 58, La Quinta gashed Garey for 315 yards on the ground.
