Bolden shines at Passing Down tourney

There wasn't a more impressive athlete at Sunday's Passing Down SoCal Regional Championships than Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos athlete Victor Bolden.

Victor Bolden impressed as a lockdown corner as well as receiver and dominated the championship for his B2G Scorch squad. Scorch knocked off Frat Boys in the final 13-0 with Bolden catching both touchdown passes.

His quickness off the line is electric and he might be the most explosive receiver in the state in his ability change direction and get in and out of his breaks. Bolden also has big hands for a smallish receiver and catches the ball very well. He could end up on either side of the ball in college.

"I prefer receiver but I'll cornerback too," Bolden said. "I think I can stretch the field on offense but lock people up on defense so I don't have a problem playing on either side of the ball.

"Right now, Hawaii is my only offer but I'm also hearing from Oregon, Texas A&M, Boston College, Vanderbilt, Washington State, ASU, Cincinnati and Northwestern. A&M and Washington State sound like they could be close to offering to0 and hopefully that happens."

Bolden said he plans to be active on the summer camp circuit as well but for now, the NFTC in Oakland is the only camp he knows he'll attend. The athlete is also a standout in track and wants to double sport in college.

"I just broke our league record in the 300 hurdles at 38.6," Bolden said. "Track is good for football, it helps my speed and I really enjoy it so I would love to do both sports in college. Right now, I'm still open to everyone who wants to recruit me and don't have any early favorites at the moment."
