Murrieta Valley’s league leading wide receiver, Marquis Spiker, has been selected to the MaxPreps All-Sophomore 2015 First Team. Spiker, in just his second year of high school, was a big playmaker on offense and helped the Nighthawks Football program be a legitimate powerhouse in the Southwestern League this past season.
Murrieta Valley finished the season with a 9-3 record and advanced to the playoffs after missing out last year with a 6-4 record. Marquis gained over 100-yards per game eight times during the season and led the Inland Empire area with 1,429 receiving yards and averaged 20.1 yards per catch.
A good amount of the Nighthawks seniors will be moving on, but with such a young team being groomed, especially with an offense being led by league leading hurler, freshman quarter back Hank Bachmeier (2854 passing yards, 36 TD’s), who has Spiker in his receiving core, Coach George Wilson is looking to have a league title contending team very soon here.
