School: Steamboat Springs High School
Why: Kauf helped the Steamboat Springs High School football team end a 22-game losing streak Friday with a 21-19 win against Summit. Kauf caught seven passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns.
Quotable: “I think it’s the consistent effort. He prepares in terms of being a student of the game. He watches film and studies his opponent. He has great desire to be great.”
— Steamboat Springs football coach Lonn Clementson
