Athlete of the Week: Kalin Sotelo

Against the Kofa High Kings last week, Calipatria High’s senior quarterback Kalin Sotelo had perhaps his best game of the season. He threw for three touchdowns (including a 71-yarder to Ezekiel Tampubolon and a fake field goal conversion to Christian Perez) and ran for another as the Hornets put up their highest point total of the season in a 34-20 win.

It was the Hornets third win in a row, marking a remarkable turnaround for a squad that’s had more than its share of turmoil this year, with an unplanned preseason coaching change throwing a major wrench into the team’s development.
