CHICO, Calif. -- High school football season is over, unless you're the Pleasant Valley Vikings and Senior Austin York.

He helped the Vikings earn their second straight section title rushing for a 175 yards and three touchdowns. York’s impact stems far beyond his duties in the backfield.

Head Coach Mark Cooley says, “...he's just a he's a really good athlete and he brings it every day and wants to compete.”

York also dominates in the classroom posting a 3.6 grade point average. “I got days where I'm watching film for many hours couple days where I’ve got to do homework then watch film. You ask a lot of guys and they’ll tell you I'm big on watching film but you’ve got to do your schoolwork first.”

A dedicated athlete who cares about winning on the field, and in the classroom. That’s why he’s our Subway Scholar-Athlete of the Week.

Some showers are expected in your Monday forecast, but will mostly be in the northern end of the valley and mountains. Scattered mountain showers linger Tuesday, then dry and warmer weather takes hold for the middle of the week.
