SportStars of the Week is Nsimba Webster. He is a senior this year and is the quarterback for Deer Valley – Antioch. The dual-threat signal-caller has used his arm and his legs — and a massively talented and athletic supporting cast, which includes his twin brother, Nzuzi — to lead the Wolverines to a 6-0 record through the second week of October.

Few Contra Costa County quarterbacks are causing as much fits for opposing defenses this season as Webster. The dual-threat signal-caller has used his arm and his legs — and a massively talented and athletic supporting cast, which includes his twin brother, Nzuzi — to lead the Wolverines to a 6-0 record through the second week of October.
The Wolverines opened Bay Valley Athletic League play with a dominant victory over Freedom-Oakley on Oct. 11. Deer Valley won 35-7 and Webster had a hand in all five Wolverines touchdowns. The fleet-footed star completed 10 of 20 passes for 183 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed 17 times for 155 yards two more scores. On the season, Webster has thrown for 1,071 yards and 12 TDs with no interceptions. He also has 690 yards rushing with 14 more touchdowns.
The Wolverines have BVAL games against Antioch and Libery-Brentwood before a presumed league-title showdown at Pittsburg on Nov. 1.
IN HIS OWN WORDS: “I think the biggest factor (to our 6-0 start) is the hard work at practice and preparation. We play humble at all times. We’re not getting big headed. Staying focused and keeping our preparation going, that’s what’s working for us.
WHAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW: Nsimba began learning to play the trumpet in second grade and still plays when he can.
Alex Hull — The junior receiver and free safety for Liberty-Brentwood caught five passes for 121 yards and three TDs in a 41-28 win over Antioch on Oct. 11. He also had eight tackles and one pass break-up.
