With the prep football season over, I took a look back at some of the best plays from the 2015 season. Keep in mind that these are just some of the best video I could get my hands on, either from Hudl.com or video taken by The Tribune. If you have video of a play you think should be on the list, feel free to send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we get enough clips, I will put together another list.
Alex Cecchi’s Hurdle Touchdown
You wouldn’t expect a player who is 5-foot-7 to jump over anyone, but that’s exactly what Arroyo Grande running back Alex Cecchi did on a touchdown run in a playoff showdown against Thousand Oaks.

Fledderman’s year was littered with big bombs down the field, but this 50-yard throw to Angel Sanchez against St. Anthony stands out. The Mission Prep junior showed poise as he stepped up in the pocket and delivered a strike into tight coverage.
Marc Martin’s Rumbling Touchdown Run
The Atascadero running back showed off his trademark power as he put one Pioneer Valley defender on his back and ran through the grasp of another on the way to a 45-yard score.
Bradley Mickey’s One-Handed Pick Six
Mickey, who had three pick-sixes on the season, read the Independence quarterback’s eyes perfectly and swooped in for the interception and score using just one hand. You have to see it to believe it.
Zack Quigley’s Scoop And Score
On a Paso Robles 4th-and-1, Quigley was in the right place at the right time for Atascadero and took the fumble 75 yards for the score. He also had an interception in the win over the Bearcats.
Sawyer May’s Rainbow Dime
May has a strong arm and made big throws all season for Arroyo Grande, but the play against Camarillo showed his ability to move out of the pocket, take a big hit and lob a rainbow pass on the money to receiver Matt Sill.
Christian Erickson’s Breakthrough Touchdown
The Paso Robles running back, known as The Beast of the North County, carried a Clovis defender a few yards before shedding him and making a quick move on the way to a 25-yard touchdown run.
Jordan Bernal’s Scramble Pass
Mission Prep, and many other teams this season, couldn’t get ahold of the shifty Templeton quarterback as he reversed field and found Nate Avery on a long pass.
Joey Garcia’s Helmet Interception
The Righetti defensive back showed his quick reaction time and ingenuity as he pinned the ball to his helmet for an interception after a pass deflected off an Atascadero receiver.
Juan Eguiluz’s Walk-Off Field Goal
On a windy night in Nipomo, kicker Juan Eguiluz buried a 37-yard field goal as time expired to defeat Twentynine Palms 17-14 in the second round of the playoffs. Clutch.
