Bowlers meet Thursdays, 10 a.m., at McHenry Bowl in Modesto. A senior who has made an impact for his varsity Cougars on the gridiron, Hunter Calton earns a turn in the spotlight this week, chosen as Athlete of the Week by The Times.
In a road game against Liberty Ranch in Galt on Sept. 18, the powerful back amassed nearly 300 of the team’s 443 yards. Calton had 14 carries for 279 yards and three touchdowns as the Cougars dismantled the host Liberty Ranch team 35-14.
“I’ve played since third grade,” Calton said of being involved in the sport. He likes the make-up of this year’s team and said they are focused on going to the Section title game this season. As for his favorite part of Friday nights? Hearing the crowd cheer,” Calton said, smiling. “I hear my dad yelling at me.” The Cougars closed out the preseason against Bear River on Sept. 25, have a bye this week, Oct. 2 and then host Hughson in the Trans-Valley League opener on Friday, Oct. 9.
