As only a sophomore, Diego was the starting RB in 7 of their 10 games this season on the varsity unit. As a freshman on the "A" Team, Diego was dominant in all 3 phases of the game. As the starting RB on offense, a starting LB on defense, and their Kicking Specialist (Punt, Field Goal, Extra Point), it was obvious that Diego is athletically ahead of his years!. He is WITHOUT A DOUBT a young man to keep a close eye on!
