CHICO, Calif. -- Pleasant Valley's Cruz Jauregui plays football, wrestles, and plans on competing in track and field.

The junior is coming off a dominant 20 second victory in his dual against Chico.

Head Wrestling Coach Nathan Hislop says Jauregui has all the tools of a great wrestler. He says, "...having that natural instinct, those natural body mechanics, and being able to combine that with a strategic awareness of mat position and what my opponents giving me is the key to it."

Jauregui is also a leader, but it's been that way no matter what sport he play. "I'm friends with everyone. I don't exclude anyone. For me, I like to support my teammates by vocalizing."

Hislop says, "he's a great natural leader. He has been his whole football career I think at every level he's been looked to as a real leader amongst his classmates. I think that's translated well into here."

When Cruz isn't dominating in his Heavyweight wrestling class, he's doing it in school holding a 3.3 GPA.

"It's definitely not easy. I have to stay up late and most of the nights doing homework after practice, not getting home until 7pm. Then showering, eating dinner, finally getting to my homework by 8pm getting it done, trying to focus on class."

There's a lot on his plate, but he wouldn't any other way. That's why he's our Subway Scholar-Athlete of the Week.
