Video/Taco Bell Athlete of Week #3: Every contender needs a powerful RB who can run, catch & score TDs

Filed in Uncategorized by on October 3, 2017
High school football in The 209 and an education, it’s a great combination.
That’s the message that Taco Bell is promoting, with Black Hat Football, as we prepare for the 2016 season. We’ll select 3 Taco Bell Athletes of the Week each Monday during the football season, through the Sac-Joaquin Section Section playoffs, and each earns a $20 gift card for tasty treats and a Taco Bell Athlete of the Week patch.
2017 TACO BELL ATHLETES OF WEEK SIX
RB JORDAN WHATLEY, EDISON VIKINGS
The 6-foot-3, 170-pounder was the driving force behind a potent ground game that led Edison to a 59-35 non-league win over Pacheco. Whatley had 18 carries for 173 yards and a touchdown, while catching two passes for 46 yards. It was the third 100-yard game of the season for Whatley, whose Vikings (4-1) open San Joaquin Athletic Association play this Friday when they visit Bear Creek.
On his tape, check out Whatley lining up in the slot around the 4:55 points – runs a downfield route, just like a receiver, and makes the nice catch for the big gain.
