Joe Ybarra 2017

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Joe Ybarra, a Wellington High School junior, has been named Big Cheese Athlete of the Week.

Despite suffering a groin injury, Ybarra rushed for 152 yards on 18 carries in Wellington’s big 21-0 victory over El Dorado Friday night.

He then accounted for all three touchdowns. His first one was huge on a 1-yard plunge to close out the first half giving the Crusaders a 7-0 lead. Then in the third quarter he would lunge 1-yard (see picture right) for Wellington’s second score. His final touchdown of the night was a big one as he raced 66 yards on a touchdown sweep.

For his performance, Ybarra receives a delicious FREE large pizza at Big Cheese Pizza at 324 N. Washington.
