Athlete Of The Week: Tyvon Hardrick

Posted: Updated:

Our Athlete Of The Week is Tyvon Hardrick. Our Sean Coffey talks with this Friday night Warrior. The Warriors may have fallen just short last Friday against San Benito, But that didn't stop one West player from running the Greyhounds ragged. Running back Tyvon Hardrick, going for 280 yards and 5 touchdowns in the contest. He tells me the monster effort boosts his faith not only in himself, but in his team. "It gives me a lot of confidence, you know, knowing that I'm gonna have my team with me to have my back when things get rough. We're gonna keep going and push through everything. Nobody goes far by himself, team, that's where you go far." And far he ran. Hardrick's big game, boosting his season touchdown total to seven through just two weeks. Warriors head coach Courtney Boyce says his effectiveness is a culmination of his hard work. "He worked out hard this past summer. And I really think he's carried that into the season, put him at a head start as far as being in shape. Just the way he runs, he runs with a lot of heart and passion, he's very intense when he's running. He has an intent of trying to go make the most out of every play." The team, meanwhile, rallying around Hardrick as well. With his season cut short a year ago, hardrick says he's running with added motivation. Boyce believes his first two games this season reflect the team's chemistry and cohesiveness. "Everybody's just kind of surrounded him. Teammates, they all love one another and I think that's how they go out there and they play. And that's he plays. He cares deeply about his teammates, and he does a good job." With district play now upon us, it's safe to say Warriors fans will be seeing plenty of number 9. Sean Coffey, Newscenter 25 Sports
