"This past week was our fourth league game against Diamond Bar High School," Steven Thomas said. "We beat them 35-7. Midway through the third quarter, the starters on offense and defense were taken out to give the second string some reps."
In two-and-a-half quarters, Thomas recorded four tackles and three receptions for a total of 48 yards.
Much like in previous games, , Diamond Bar coaches elected to played it safe on special teams by kicking away from Thomas.
"Their punter would not punt the ball to me so I did not get any returns," Thomas said. "But on the opening kickoff I had a 48-yard return."
Thomas did return late in the game for a goal line stand that would force a Diamond Bar field goal attempt. The BYU -bound safety stayed on the field to finish the job he started.
"On [the field goal attempt], I came off the right side and laid out for the block," recalled Thomas. "The ball hit off my helmet and bounced 30 yards downfield. I got off the ground to get the ball and scooped it up for a 10-yard run before I was tackled."
Tomorrow Thomas and the 4-0 Chino Hills High School Huskies will take on 4-0 Damien High School for the league title. Stay tuned for a report from TBS…
