Rashaan Broomfield of Weed was named the Ray Francis Award most valuable player in the 2015 Lions All Star Football 11-man game July 18 in Oroville.
Playing safety, Broomfield intercepted two passes to help the North defeat the South 34-12 in the 38th annual Lions game.
His first interception in the end zone near the end of the first half stopped a South scoring threat.
Broomfield returned his second interception to the one-yard line to set up a North touchdown.
The South defeated the North in the
8-man game. The North roster included Dunsmuir High School graduates Chase Sordahl, Tommy Stibi and Hunter Kirch.
Both games were played by this year’s high school graduates from within the Lions District 4-C1 in northern California.
Other Siskiyou County players on the North 11-man roster were Daniel Benham of Mount Shasta, Tyler Currie of Yreka, and Marquis Pitts of Etna.
Playing quarterback, Currie completed 7 of 14 passes for 45 yards and rushed for 22 yards.
Weed head coach Byron Mathes said he counted six tackles by Broomfield, who also played on the kickoff team.
Broomfield is moving up to play for College of the Siskiyou next. COS coach Charlie Roche referred to him as “one of the best athletes in Siskiyou County. He has the tools to work with and a chance to do a lot of good things. He has good speed, is versatile and can play offense or defense. We’ll figure it out as we go.”
