Our KOAA News5 Athlete of the Week is Jaylen Thomas of Vista Ridge.
The senior for the Wolves is a do it all back who doesn’t have a set position because he counted nine on the field that he can play.
He’s scored 24 touchdowns in 2017; 10 rushing, 10 passing, 4 catching. He’s proven he’s a multi-threat player.
"He’s just one of those kids that goes, ‘hey if we need to make a play I’ll make it – put me where I need to go so I can make that play," said head coach Jerimi Calip.
Vista Ridge is into the quarterfinals in 4A and hosts Pueblo South on Saturday. The Wolves are one step closer to a state title.
"It would feel great – that’s the goal, since day one," Thomas said.
