SBCC Lands 3 Football Players on All-State Team

Three SBCC football players have been selected to the CCCAA All-State Region 4 team.

Running back Manny Nwosu made first-team offense and Russell Enholm and Chayvis Curry were first-team defense.

Nwosu, a 6-foot sophomore from Dos Pueblos High, led the American Pacific League in rushing with 1,080 yards and nine touchdowns. He was No. 9 in the state and had six 100-yard games with a high of 199 vs. L.A. Southwest. He carried the ball 192 times and only fumbled twice with the Vaqueros recovering both times. He also caught 15 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns.

Nwosu was the first 1,000-yard rusher at SBCC in 47 years.

“Manny was the rock of the offense,” said Vaquero coach Craig Moropoulos. “He started every game and he’s tough to bring down.”

Enholm is a former Santa Barbara High star who played at the University of San Diego before transferring to SBCC. The 6-3, 220-pound sophomore free safety had 40 tackles and led the Vaqueros in interceptions (3) and blocked kicks (3).

“Russell was a leader for our defense,” Moropoulos said. “He leads by example and was a solid member of our team for two years.” 

Curry, a 6-3 freshman defensive end from Fresno, had 56 tackes, 3½ sacks and nine tackles for loss.

“Chayvis is an outstanding pass rusher with as quick a ‘first step’ as we saw all season,” said Moropoulos. “He’s extremely athletic and has a bright future.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
