ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—When Cibola needed a play, Mikey Garcia answered the call.
Garcia helped the Cougars beat Sandia with a career high—three touchdown catches and 213 recieving yards.
"I learned a lot from the coaches, the receivers coaches, all of the coaches helped me throughout receiving," Garcia said. "The players before me when I was a junior and sophomore— just everything I just take take in and it helps me."
Garcia impacted the game on offense and defense, making big plays and setting the tone as a leader.
"In previous years I kind of just sat back and just played, but this year I just have a higher role. I have to talk to the young kids and just help them and then they help me," Garcia said. "It's a new role, it's kind of different but I like it."
The Cougars host Oñate Friday night.
