For his eye-opening performance against Santa Maria, Cabrillo High running back Bryce Moses is the Week 4 Friday Night Highlights Player of the Week.
The 6-0 junior rushed for 300 yards and scored four touchdowns in the Conquistadores' 55-20 win over Santa Maria last Thursday. He helped Cabrillo win its Los Padres League opener and snap a three game losing skid. The 300 rushing yards are the highest single-game total by a Central Coast running back this season in the 11-man football ranks.
Moses was also named Male Athlete of the Week on Monday by the Northern Santa Barbara County Athletic Roundtable.
Templeton High quarterback Alex Elterman (235 passing yards, 4 TD passes, FG), St. Joseph's Wesley Williams (145 rushing yards, TD), Jonathan Torres of Atascadero (158 rushing yards, 2 TD) and Paso Robles quarterback Garrett Nelson (69 rushing yards and 2 TD, 176 passing yards and 1 TD pass) were the other finalists this week.
