The Williams Unified School District awarded their outstanding senior athletes for 2020 on Wednesday to Mo Hernandez and Jackie Rivera.

“Receiving this award is a great honor,” said Rivera. “When I was notified, I was filled with so much joy and excitement. It made me reflect over all the wonderful moments I have had playing sports.”

Rivera was a member of the Yellowjackets’ varsity basketball team for two years. She played varsity volleyball one year, and was a member of the track team for three years.

“A big thank you to all my coaches and everyone who helped me in any way, big or small,” stated Rivera.

Hernandez was also named Most Valuable Player for the 2019-2020 varsity basketball season and received the Captain Award. Hernandez will attend Sierra City College to further his sports career in football, and earn a degree.

As a triathlete, Hernandez played at the varsity level for three years in basketball, two years in football and one year in baseball.

“I would like to thank my parents,” stated Hernandez. “They always supported the decisions I’ve made. A big thank you to my uncles for convincing me to play football and showing me the love of the game.”
