Athlete of the Week: Aaron Tabarez

The Calexico boys’ basketball team just won its first league title in in 24 years. The Bulldogs are 24-3 (which might be a single-season school record for wins — moths have been at the Hall of Records), are the top ranked team in CIF-SDS Division IV playoffs and have an excellent shot at winning the whole thing.

Who do the Bulldog faithful have to thank for this bounty? Well, a lot of people. The list is almost certainly very long — a good deal longer than the time allotted for an Oscars speech. Head Coach Hugo Estrada and his staff certainly deserve a ton of credit. They’ve turbocharged the program over the past couple of years.
