El Monte Quarterback Brandon Martinez
Martinez threw 44 touchdown passes and ran for eight more in 2012, but the numbers don’t do justice in relating his value to the Lions. The season pivoted on him. Without Martinez’s skills, ability, and more importantly leadership we might not know names like Abel Barajas, Adolfo Sanchez, and Bryan
Luevano. For El Monte football, he raises the bar very very high. Exceptional as a person and as an athlete.
Player of the Year:
Monrovia Running Back/Linebacker Ge’vontray Ainsworth
Ainsworth took heat, but everyone does, when he transfered from Covina into Monrovia late last school year. On the field he was excellent on both sides of the ball. He rushed for 1,351 yards and 16 touchdowns. Ainsworth scored 19
touchdowns total and registered 15.5 sacks from his outside linebacker spot. Ainsworth, perhaps, saved his best football down the stretch in leading the Wildcats to a third consecutive Mid-Valley Division title and a spot in the California state playoffs.
