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.
