Ricky Trinidad’s first three carries against River Ridge last Friday night went like this:

-0 yards
-2 yards
-4 yards

Then, he erupted.

On Trinidad’s nine final rushing attempts, the Mitchell standout produced 215 yards. Two of his runs went for 70-plus yards (both TDs); six were good for 11 or more yards.

“He has that big-play explosive ability that you just can’t coach,” Mitchell coach Brian Wachtel said.

Aside from his 221 rushing yards in the Mustangs’ 31-13 win, the junior also returned a kickoff 99 yards for a score to open the game.

“He’s an explosive runner,” Wachtel said. “He’s the only running back I’ve ever coached or seen who can cut and go from 0 to 60 instantly. That’s his strength.”
