Every prolific attack requires a guy who can catch the ball in space and take off. This is Matt Long from Vista del Lago High School.
The second had an impact on the games with his good routes, good hands, good speed and desire to reach the end zone. Last week against El Camino in a Capital Athletic League game, Long caught eight passes from Jakob Hollingshaus for 129 yards and three touchdowns in a 56-20 victory.
Long also has a lot of friends. He won The Bee’s Prep Football Player of the Week vote poll.
Long is 5ft 10in and 185 pounds, a 3.92 student whose team is 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the CAL, a race that also includes Sacramento and Capital Christian. He has 37 catches for 498 yards and six touchdowns. He’s averaging 13.5 yards per reception.
Vista del Lago is visiting Del Campo tonight in a CAL match.
