Deer Valley (Calif.) High cruised past Castro Valley High in the playoff opener for both teams on Friday. That ended Castro Valley’s season, which means the program has plenty of time to work on tackling before its players try to stop Deer Valley QB Nsimba Webster again.
As you can see from the video above, which was dug up by Bob's Blitz, the team may actually need the full offseason to get ready for Webster's return.
Webster dodged around and sprinted past a majority of the Castro Valley defense on a 51-yard scoring run during his squad’s 49-21 victory. The Contra Costa Times counted six Castro Valley defenders who had a direct shot at Webster on the scramble, not counting the safety from the opposite side of the field who raced over to try and catch Webster as he raced to the end zone.
The defender never got there, and the touchdown provided the cushion that Deer Valley needed. The score and subsequent extra point pushed Deer Valley’s lead to 35-21 and the squad never looked back.
Webster was responsible for six of Deer Valley’s seven touchdowns — three through the air and three on the ground — though his coach and the crowd were clearly fixated on his most explosive run after the game.
"Nsimba Webster had a heck of a game," Deer Valley coach Rich Woods told the Contra Costa Times. "That run he made — two of his runs — were incredible. What a competitor."
