NM Gameday Player of the Week: Isaiah Chavez

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— When times get tough, the best players elevate their team to victory.


In Saturday’s win over Las Cruces, Rio Rancho’s Isaiah Chavez gave the Rams a boost.

Chavez scored three times on offense and on defense he had an interception.

That brings the Rams up to two straight wins after losing the first two games of the season.

“We are better than everyone thinks we are and I think we figured that out after we came out of Cruces with the win it was a close one but we grinded it out and we play together as a family and that's what we're starting to do here,” Chavez said.

Along with quarterback and defensive back, Chavez helps on special.

He’s the Rams’ long snapper and holder on field goals.

"I love it. I love doing everything I can for my team. I love helping them win so it's just more of my shoulders the more I take everything seriously,” he said.

Rio Rancho takes on La Cueva Friday at Wilson Stadium.
