The Friday Highlight: Dyson Dandurand

This week we travel to Goodyear and meet the Millennium Tigers.  The Tigers are 4-4 but more importantly 3-0 in section play.  They have a very big game tonight against Avondale Westview.  The game is not only big just because the two schools are rivals but because this game will more than like decide the section champ.

The Tigers are on a three game win streak after starting 1-4.  A big part of the turnaround is the offensive line, which is anchored by 6'1 305 pound Dyson Dandurand.  He is a big and powerful young man who plays with passion and is an intense fierce competitor.  He holds the schools bench press record at 405 pounds and is looking to break the schools power clean record as well.  The record is 320 pounds.  He started playing football because his dad wanted him to, but as soon as he hit his first defensive lineman he knew this game was for him.  This is definitely the case because he leads the team with 45 pancake blocks.  He had 15 in the first half against Maryvale.  He is tough kid that has been on varsity since his freshman year.  A feat that only a handful of athletes accomplish and rarely are they lineman. 

Dandurand currently has a 2.75 GPA and has a goal of obtaining a college scholarship and playing football on Saturdays.  He is being pursued by Arizona Christian but has not yet committed to any school.  After watching him play you will understand why he will be playing football at the next level.

Dandurand has many goals he would like to achieve by seasons end.  He maybe able to accomplish two of them when he takes the field with his teammates tonight.  He wants to beat Westview and win the section.  He is hoping that his teammates take "Highway 50" to victory.  He wears number 50 and used to the running backs running behind him into the end zone.  If he has it his way that's what will happen tonight.
