State Athletes of the Week State Athletes of the Week

 Boys: Tim Bessolo (Los Alamitos)

Other than Newhall Hart, no school in Southern California seems to consistently showcase top quarterbacks like Los Al. The Griffins unveiled Bessolo in a big way last week as he passed for 412 yards and four touchdowns in a 41-31 triumph over El Modena of Orange. Bessolo completed 23 of 27 passes, most of which went to teammate Kevin Van Gorder, who caught 12 passes for 238 yards. Bessolo will have a tough task this week as the Griffins play Santa Margarita in their second game.

Girls: Brynn Larson (Westlake, Westlake Village)

Larson was named MVP last weekend at the Ventura volleyball tourney. She led the Warriors to the championship as they outlasted defending tourney champ Ventura in the finals. Larson is one of the top hitters in Southern California, but is playing setter this year. She has signed a letter of intent with the University of Washington.
