PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Every Thursday this fall, KOIN 6 News will be honoring the best of the best in high school sports with our Athlete of the Week.
To kick things off, KOIN 6 News shines the spotlight on the state’s No. 1 ranked football team at Central Catholic High School.
Junior Running Back Cameron Scarlett is this season’s first Athlete of the Week.
Proving it’s a team effort at Central Catholic, a coach helps Cameron Scarlett get ready for his close up. That’s how the Rams roll — with teammates like quarterback Aiden Wilder finding a way to get Scarlett the ball and letting No. 22 do the rest.
“The sky’s the limit for him,” said Central Catholic Head Coach Steve Pyne. “He’s a phenomenal kid, he works really hard, he’s humble off the field, he’s a really good student and he’s got the world ahead of him.”
The Rams just beat defending champ Sheldon High and state runner-up Lake Oswego in back-to-back weeks. Scarlett now is focused on Friday’s Jesuit game — the annual “holy war.”
“Gotta be excited for this game,” Scarlett told KOIN 6 News, “because it doesn’t get much better than this.”
