Congratulations to varsity football player Leroy R. '24 for being selected as our Athlete of the Week for the week of October 11-17, 2021.
The junior running back and cornerback proved to be the key piece in the Cougar's overtime win against Gateway last Friday, securing the go-ahead touchdown on the first play of overtime.
"Leroy is such a competitor. He stepped up and played every down for us on the offensive and defensive side of the ball," said football coach Vince Camarca. "In addition to the overtime touchdown, he had a crucial 45-yard kickoff return that gave the offense great field position to setup the first touchdown in the third quarter."
Leroy recorded five solo tackles and an interception on the defensive side, while carrying the ball nine times for 84 yards on the night.
