SoCal Prep Legends Boys Athlete of the Week
Name: Thomas Graham
School: Rancho Cucamonga
Sport: Football
Year: Senior

Winning Numbers: Graham’s votes accounted for 56 percent of the week’s poll, and totaled 3,262 votes, which beat out Jacobi Hardy’s (Long Beach Wilson) 2, 381 votes.
The 6-foot, 180-pound standout has been a factor for the nationally-ranked Cougars on both sides of the ball and that was evident in Friday’s 42-26 win over Mission Viejo in a CIF-SS Division 1 quarterfinal. Graham caught a 7-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Nick Acosta and returned an interception 72 yards for a touchdown to put the game away in the closing minute. He also had five tackles. Graham, who de-committed from USC, has 21 NCAA Division I scholarship offers.
