CHICO, Calif. — Chico High School quarterback Ty Thomas was named the Round Table Pizza Player of the Week for his outstanding performance in the Panthers' 37-0 victory of Shasta High School last Friday night.
Thomas threw four touchdown passes to help the Panthers improve to a perfect 5-0 as they head into this Friday's game at Enterprise.
The triumph was especially gratifying as it was Chico's first game with Shasta since the teams met in the Northern Section title game a year ago, which Shasta won handily.
"We all wanted some revenge," said Thomas. who also serves as Chico's punter.
"This was one of the games that I circled on the schedule," he said. "It was a game that gave us more motivation to perform like we usually do."
