Truckee grad named Defensive Player of the Week

Santa Barbara City College linebacker and 2011 Truckee High grad Morgan Nevin earned Defensive Player of the Week honors this past week in the American Pacific Conference.

The 6-foot, 220-pound freshman recorded 15 tackles, eight solo, in a 20-13 loss to Antelope Valley in a first-place showdown last Friday. He had a sack and two tackles for a loss.

Nevin has 70 tackles in six games, while his 11.7 average and 118 total tackles rank No. 1 in the Southern California Football Association.

Santa Barbara lineman Stephen Brooks had 13 tackles and safety Colin Christian, also a 2011 Truckee grad, had 12 tackles.

Christian ranks 13th in the Southern California Football Association with 80 tackles, while former Truckee teammate Mitch Nelson ranks 22nd with 73. Jackson Weed, a 2010 Truckee grad, also has started for the Vaqueros this season but missed a few games with an injury.

The Vaqueros, who were winless last year, are 3-3 overall and 2-1 in conference play entering Friday's home game against host L.A. Pierce.
