VALLEY GOT TALENT DOES IT AGAIN!

2017 QUICK 6 "AIR-TO-THE THRONE" 7-ON-7 CHAMPIONS

Continuing their winning ways, Valley Got Talent (white) captured the 2017 QUICK 6 "AIR-TO-THE-THRONE" 7-ON-7 CHAMPIONSHIP. VGT started as a 14-seed and battled through the 20 team tournament finally defeating the top-seed BAY AREA TITANS in the championship match. It's ironic that VGT won the first QUICK 6 tournament of the year because they closed out last year as the QUICK 6 "Golden State 7-on-7" Champions!

A collection of the Stanislaus District’s top high school football players captured the Quick 6 Golden State 7-on-7 Championship at Valley Christian High in San Jose.

Valley’s Got Talent (VGT) defeated Epic 7 of San Jose with a defensive stand in the final minute to complete a come-from-behind victory at the invitation-only event Saturday, May 7, 2016.

Sonora High’s Kane Rodgers, an All-District and MaxPreps’ Sophomore of the Year for the Sac-Joaquin Section, intercepted a pass to seal the 17-16 win.

Epic 7, sponsored by former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer, was the No. 1 overall seed.

Rodgers “made a great read,” said VGT coach Les Bonsu, also the owner of Bonsu Elite Athletics in Ceres. “He said he saw the play numerous times at safety. When we moved him up to corner, he saw it again, sat in the hole and picked it.”

VGT was seeded third and defeated Bay Area-based teams About that Action, Kenion (twice) and 510 Fitness (twice) en route to the final. The tournament title was the first of the spring season for a team that began to take shape with tryouts in January.

In addition to Rodgers, the roster for the Quick 6 Golden State 7-on-7 Championship included sophomore Bobby Avina of Gregori, junior Chris Lubinsky of Ceres, junior Marcellus Boykins of Ceres, senior Daniel Giannosa of Big Valley Christian, sophomore Marcus Aponte of St. Mary’s, senior Osai Brown of McNair, senior Darius Livingston of Bear Creek, junior Tre Wortham of Bear Creek and senior Brandon Sanders of St. Mary’s.

“It’s been a long season, but this is definitely a great way to end the season … if that’s our last game,” said Bonsu, who may enter VGT in a showcase at Cal on June 4.

“We only had two kids back from last year. Everyone was new, but the kids definitely deserved this.”

Avina and Rodgers were named the tournament’s offensive and defensive MVPs, respectively.

Bonsu believes Avina, a sophomore quarterback, has a chance to be special at Gregori, where coach Jason McCoy will need to replace two-year starter Cam Calton (2,341 career passing yards, 19 touchdowns).

“I think that kid is going to have a tremendous season. He’s gotten so much better,” Bonsu said. “If he doesn’t play as well as he did, we don’t have a chance over the weekend.”
