The "Loaf ‘N Jug Gatorade High School Athlete of the Week" is back for another school year. And this week's winner is a football player from Pueblo Centennial who seems to have a flair for the big play. Congratulations to running back Drew Avila.
Avila rushed for 130 yards, in the Bulldogs close loss to Pueblo East last weekend. The big play was an 88 yard touchdown run early in the game. The week before in Centennial's 22-14 win over Pueblo County he threw a 66-yard touchdown pass.
If you know an athlete who does win in school and in the athletic arena make sure you nominate them at KOAA.com. We'll announce a new winner every Tuesday throughout the school year on News 5 at 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
