PARADISE, Calif. --

Josh Alvies was born and raised in Paradise and grew up playing soccer, baseball and football.

Now, Alvies is one of the Captains on Paradise High's football team. The Bobcats are undefeated and headed to playoffs. 

“We’re ready," said Alvies. "We have a lot to prove. From what I hear a lot of people say we can’t play in this division, so we’re ready to play our football and prove them wrong.”

Head Coach Rick Prinz says Alvies is not only a leader on the field, but off the field, too. 

“The important thing to know about Josh is his character," said Prinz. "He is a true, caring person. He puts other people before himself, all the time and I’ll give you an example. As you know Coach Hopper came down this year with that surgery and Josh went over every Saturday and is still going over there and mowing his lawn. Without even asking, that’s just the kind of kid he is.”

Between mowing lawns, church, class and football practices, Alvies still maintains a 4.0 GPA. 

“I'm just comfortable with what I'm doing," said Alvies. "I have a routine after the Camp Fire and it’s easy for me to do what needs to be done instead of having a scattered life like last year.“

And a torn ACL and the Camp Fire couldn't keep this Bobcat down. 

“It's amazing because he’s the hardest worker," said Prinz. He plays both sides of the ball [tight end and linebacker]. He’s done many special teams and he still gets his studies done and makes them a priority so it can be done." 

“It's going to help open up careers for me in the future," said Alvies. "Having the grades now is going to help later on with colleges and everything like that.”

Alvies hopes to go to college after high school and someday enter the law enforcement perhaps for the Department of Fish and Wildlife, just like his father. 

Alvies also plans to play baseball for Paradise High. 

Alvies and the Bobcats will host No. 5 Live Oak in the section playoffs on Friday at 7 p.m.
