VCHS grad David Last named Athlete of the Week at USD
October 16, 2013Valley Center High School graduate David Last, a sophomore kicker for the University of San Diego football team, has been named the Muscle Milk USD Student Athlete of the Week for his performance in the Toreros' win over Marist on Saturday.
Last connected for two field goals including the game winner with no time left on the clock to secure a 35–33 victory that kept the Toreros undefeated in Pioneer Football League play.
With seconds left in the Homecoming matchup between USD and the Red Foxes, Last lined up for a potential game-winning field goal with the Toreros trailing 33–32. Last's kick sailed wide right, but due to a penalty for running into the kicker, he was given another attempt with no time left on the clock. Last drilled his second attempt from 28 yards straight down the middle to secure a dramatic two-point victory for the Toreros.
Last, a redshirt sophomore and Finance major, remains perfect on the year at eight-for-eight on field goals. Thanks in part to his efforts, the Toreros are tied for first place in the Pioneer Football League with a perfect 3–0 record in conference play.
