CV grad puts on a show at Lions All-Star Game
Fueled by Trevor Mew's MVP performance, the South defeated the North 19-3 in the 36th Annual Lions All-Star Football Classic on Saturday at the University of the Pacific's Stagg Memorial Stadium.

The recent Central Valley High School graduate had an efficient night at quarterback, finishing 11-of-16 for 179 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Mew tossed TD passes to Buhach Colony's Hodari Peterson (10 yards), Patterson's Ronyea Ellington (14 yards) and Enochs' Boomer Green (80 yards).

"That's what I expected from myself," Trevor said. "I just went out there and did what I was taught. I'm definitely pleased. I had a bunch of guys around me that wanted the same thing as me, which was to win."

Mew and former Hawk tight end Stephen Fonsworth helped the South end a six-game losing streak to the North in front of 2,500 spectators.

"We did what we were supposed to do," Trevor said. "My line did an excellent job blocking and guys were catching passes and making plays on the outside. Our defense had huge stops the whole game. We were motivated."

The members of the South team practiced and stayed in dorms at Cal State Stanislaus during the week leading up to the all-star game.

Mew roomed with Peterson, Los Banos receiver Rubal Sangha and Atwater linebacker Dexter Coward.

"We had so much down time," Trevor said. "We hung out, talked and watched movies. It was cool getting to know those guys. It was just a really good experience."

Mew had a sensational senior year with the Hawks (5-5 overall). The Valley Oak League Offensive Player of the Year had the second-best quarterback rating in the Sac-Joaquin Section (138). He completed 73 percent of his passes for 2,957 yards, 29 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.

Trevor had a completion percentage of 65, 5,623 passing yards and 45 touchdowns during his three-year career at Central Valley.

He'll represent the Hawks one last time when he participates in the 24th Annual Chowchilla Rotary All-Star Football Game this Friday.

"We have a lot of the same guys playing in the game," said Mew, who will suit up for the North squad. "We just need to have everybody do their job. If we have to run the ball every play to win, that's what we'll do."
