Tyvon Hardrick played on varsity for the first time for Victoria West this season.

The sophomore running back carried the load for the Warriors, rushing for 950 yards on 142 carries for eight touchdowns.

Hardrick was rewarded for his play by being named the Newcomer of the Year on the All-District 27-5A team.

"He gained a lot of confidence as the season went on," said West head coach Courtney Boyce. "It says a lot about what the district thinks about him."

Hardrick averaged 6.7 yards per carry for the Warriors that rushed for a total of 2,178 years.

West finished the season with a 6-5 overall record and made the playoffs for the first time since 2015.

The Warriors will be looking to continue to have success next season.

"I thought he did a good job of running the football and did a great job of pass protection," Boyce said. "For him being a young player, it's going to give him a lot of confidence going forward. I know that he's going to work hard in the offseason and wants to get better as a player and a person."
