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.
