DJ Ford (senior) has been named athlete of the month for August. He has been chosen, not only for is exceptional ability on the field, but also for his work in the classroom. Ford’s favorite thing about the football team is “the brotherhood and faith we have in each other.” He also feels that “Norco High has a sense of community and acceptance that it provides. It allows students to spread their wings and grow as people.” When asked about how football changed him, he answered that “football has taught me the value of hard work and [it] has helped shaped me into a disciplined individual. Football allows me to deal with issues in a constructive manner, and [it] influences me every day.” He feels honored being named athlete of the month and has goals for the end of the season. “My goal for the end of this season is to bring Norco back another championship, and I feel we have a great chance.”
