As a sophomore, Chaminade's T.J. Pledger is supposed to be in awe of an opponent like Gardena (Calif.) Serra that produces Division I athlete after D1 athlete.
There is going to be a good amount of talent any time Gardena Serra is playing and Chaminade's senior class features UCLA commit Dymond Lee, USC track/football signee T.J. Brock and rising wide receiver Jordan Chin, who has since added a scholarship offer from San Diego State.
However, the young buck, Pledger, showed no trepidation and stole the spotlight Friday night when the two Mission League rivals squared off at Chaminade. The four-star 2018 running back rushed for three touchdowns and 144 yards on 23 carries (6.3 avg), including a game-clinching 70-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter.
