New Mexico high school football week 7 highlights

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Week seven of high school football was full of big plays and excitement. Here is a breakdown of some of the actions.

Longtime rivals Eldorado and La Cueva met at Wilson Field for each of their first district games of the year. The Bears offense made sure the Eagles knew who was boss as they put up 63 points en route to the victory.

The undefeated Hobbs Eagles made the trip to the Field of Dreams for a District 3/4 clash against Las Cruces. While the Bulldawgs kept things close early, the Eagles showed why they haven’t lost a game this year as they won 44-28.

This week’s game of the week featured two of the top dogs in Class 6A – Volcano Vista and Cleveland. The two explosive offenses met at Lightning Bolt Stadium to grab an early lead in the District 1 standings and the Storm defense was the difference maker in this one as they had two big stops in the first half. Cleveland went on to win 56-21.

West Mesa won their Thursday night game against Sandia 22-14. Mustangs head coach Landrick Brody and running back Elijah Brody joined Van and Jared in the studio to talk about the win and an outlook on the rest of the season.

First-class learning center First-class performance

This week’s first-class learning center’s first-class performance goes to the Cleveland defense. The Storm came up with a crucial interception in the first half and also blocked a kick.

NMAA Student Athlete of the Week

This week’s NMAA Student Athlete of the Week is Albuquerque Academy quarterback AJ Rivera. Through six games, the Chargers senior has thrown for more than 1,000 yards and accounted for 10 total touchdowns. Rivera recently took the ACT and received a perfect overall score of 36, and he also has a 4.2 GPA in the classroom.

“You know I’m a senior and it’s a lot of work, coming at you so fast, but I think my family and I have always talked about school first,” Rivera said. “It’s student-athlete, and that’s why we’ve always put the student aspect first, it’s been a big part of my life. It took a while, but I think we’re getting a good balance now and I think it really shows, my test scores, my glass scores.”

Everguard Solar Shining Light

This week’s Everguard Solar Shining Light goes to Atrisco Heritage senior Juan Lopez. The defensive lineman recently won his battle with testicular cancer and made his first appearance on the roster in 2022.

“I mean it’s been a process,” Lopez said. “When I was first diagnosed, I thought I would never get back on the field. Knowing that this is my first game back, and to come back, it puts a joy on my face, it puts a joy on my coaches’ face, everybody’s face, and I’m happy to give it back >
