WILLMAR — Ramero Trevino has emerged as one of the top running backs in the North Central District White Division, proving to be a sturdy, quick back for the Willmar Cardinals with a reputation for being tough to tackle one-on-one.

He's a well-built, 5-foot-10, 210 pound junior who ran for 191 yards and three touchdowns on 31 carries in last week's 33-28 win over state-ranked Rocori.

The effort helped him earn Central Lakes Conference Performer of the Week honors.

Trevino is one of three Cardinals to earn CLC honors this week.

Boys soccer player Isaac Zelaya Velasquez was named the CLC defensive player of the week after getting a key defensive save in a victory over Sartell.

Cool moment

Lakeview beat Lac qui Parle Valley football 70-0 Thursday night. The big win enabled the Lakers to use Terrek Jenniges as the holder on an extra point late in the game.

Jenniges was born with Caudal regression syndrome. It's a disorder that impairs the lower half of the body, according to the website Medlineplus.gov.

Though the Lakers missed the extra point, Jenniges got an ovation from the crowd, according to the Lakeview Lakers Twitter account, which has a short video of the play.
