Juan Gaytan, Pirate Football, Week of September 23

Pirate sophomore Juan Gaytan has been an all-everything player for the VC football team this season. The Burna High School product is a wide receiver by trade, but has been filling in at running back and also plays special teams. On Saturday at Palomar, Juan carried the ball 11 times for 170 yards, including touchdown runs of two and 60 yards, respectively. He also had a 65-yard run to set up another score. And as if that was not enough, he recorded five tackles on special teams as the Pirates defeated the Comets 45-38. For his efforts, Juan is this week's M & M Sports VC Pirate Student Athlete of the Week.
