Ryan Locke, a 6-foot-4 Bella Vista High School senior quarterback, passed for 257 yards and three touchdowns to help beat Yuba City 35-20 last Friday. The victory moved the Broncos to 3-0, equaling the team's win total last season. Locke was voted by fans and followers as The Bee's Prep Football Player of the Week. Locke also is an impressive baseball pitcher, but his top achievements might be in the classroom, where he has a 4.3 grade-point average with classes that included Advanced Placement calculus and physics. Said Broncos coach Matt Polston, "Ryan's a great leader and a true asset to our team and school."
