Minico's Vega is the Idaho 4A Football Player of the Year

RUPERT, Idaho ( KMVT / KSVT ) The 2017 Spartan Football team will go down as one of the best in school history.

And Vega played a huge role in that feat.

He rushed for 1,807 yards to go along with 16 touchdowns. His seven touchdowns at Canyon Ridge set a school record for most in one game.

He also set the record for most rushing yards in a game with 385.

Vega told us he was shocked and happy about the news and the one main difference between the 2016 version of Vega and now, maturity.

"Last year I really wasn't a team player. I didn't come to camps and I wasn't really like being part of a team. This year I felt bad for my teammates, I wanted to be part of the team, that's how I got here," Vega explained.
