BRAXTON GODDERIDGE, Sky View, football: The junior quarterback had a monster game in leading the Bobcats to the 45-27 victory over Hunter last Friday.
Godderidge completed 18-of-25 passes for 390 yards and four touchdowns.
Three of his TD passes came in the first half as Sky View built a 28-21 lead, and his last came in the fourth quarter on a 59-yard hook-up with Ethan Dursteler that helped ice the victory for the undefeated Bobcats.
Two games into the season, Godderidge has thrown for 553 yards and five TDs. His yardage total is second only to Timpview's Jake Lloyd.
Godderidge also got in on the act defensively, recording a tackle from his secondary position.
DANELLE PARADY, Riverton, volleyball: Danelle Parady didn't get much of a summer break.
The junior outside hitter was training with USA volleyball in Iowa after she made the Junior National A2 Team this summer. She moved from training with some of the country's best players, to helping her high school teammates gear up for a tough season.
"Athletically, she's one of our go-to players," said Riverton head coach Scott Keister. "She's hitting just under .400 for the year right now. She pushes everybody in the gym. She isn't just showboating, she's encouraging others to do better, give their best, and she's just an emotional leader for the team."
The honor student, who committed to play for BYU two weeks ago, has a rare combination — a competitive nature with a nurturing instinct.
"She has the kind of personality that she wants to take care of everybody on the team," he said. "She's more of a quiet, lead by example kid. She says what she needs to, when she needs to."
