Elite passer in CV's Mew
Trevor Mew made his final start at quarterback for Central Valley High School's varsity football team against city-rival Ceres High on Nov. 14 at Bulldog Stadium.

The third-year starter passed for 269 yards and four touchdowns and ran for another score as the Hawks defended the Ceres Classic trophy with a 40-7 Valley Oak League finale victory.

"He really showed what he's all about tonight," head coach Tim Garcia said.

The top passer in the Sac-Joaquin Section, Mew connected on 73 percent of his attempts for 2,957 yards with 29 touchdowns and just eight interceptions on the year.

Trevor had the highest quarterback rating at 138 and second-best completion percentage in the state. He ranked sixth overall at his position.

"He set the bar tremendously high for the kids that are going to follow," Garcia said. "He had the right attitude and work ethic. He has a really bright future ahead of him."

Mew refused to take all the credit.

The Hawks had one of the best receiving tandems in the area in Deangelo Williams and Rick Rogers.

Williams caught 55 passes for 1,134 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Rogers finished with 63 receptions, 912 yards and 10 TDs.

Running back Vince Lopez tallied 1,149 yards (795 rushing, 354 receiving) and eight touchdowns.

"I couldn't have done it without my team," Trevor said.

Mew's stellar play has drawn the attention of Valley Sports Xtra, a comprehensive high school sports web site. Trevor was interviewed on campus earlier this month. That footage along with video from practice and his final game will be posted for viewing in the near future.

A handful of schools have already expressed interest in Trevor, including University of Reno-Nevada, Northern Arizona University, Portland State, Sacramento State and UC Davis.

The recruiting process starts in December.

"His phone is going to be ringing off the hook," Garcia said.

Trevor thrived under Tim's guidance.

Mew led Central Valley's sophomore football squad to a "mythical" independent league championship and 7-2-1 overall record while playing quarterback for the first time in his life as a freshman.

The Hawks improved each season at the varsity level with Mew under center.

Central Valley finished 5-5 overall and 3-4 in the VOL this year, 3-7 (2-5) last season and 1-9 (0-7) in 2006.

The Hawks won two of three games against the Bulldogs.

"I'm very fortunate I had the opportunity to coach him the last four years," Garcia said. "He's a perfect example of hard work and dedication. There's no question who the best quarterback is in the area. He truly deserves the opportunity to play at the next level."
