The junior tennis standout won a very big match at No. 1 singles to help beat Burlingame, 4-3, then won against Mills to help give the unbeaten Bears their first PAL Bay Division regular-season title since 2000.
The senior two-way football standout shook off a slight concussion from the previous week to rush for 128 yards on 18 carries, score two touchdowns and throw two TD passes to help the Panthers to a 46-36 victory.
