Delgado taking on leadership role for Thunder football

Posted: August 14, 2018 / Source: Ahwatukee Foothills News

Primarily an edge rusher last season, Delgado accounted for 65 tackles, seven of which were sacks.

His passion for the game – especially on defense – is obvious on the practice field.

“I love football,” Delgado said. “The tenacity and fire to get to the ball is a lot of fun.”

This season, Delgado becomes more of a stand-up linebacker, allowing him to move freely across the field in pass coverage or gain an extra step on the opposing offensive line in blitz situations.

He remains at fullback on offense in situations as the lead blocker. But don’t count out his ability to carry or catch the ball out of the backfield.

“He can play anywhere. We have packages just for him,” Hinds said. “He can run if you put the ball in his hands and he can catch really well. It’s fun to watch a kid like that. He loves football. He goes hard, plays hard.

“He’s one of those kids you really love coaching.”
