SportStar of the Week- Tariq Bracy Milpitas Football Sr.

The Trojans running back was quite simply on a mission when his team traveled to Campolindo-Moraga for the CIF 4-A northern regional playoff game on Dec. 9. Since he and his twin brother, Tyree — the team’s quarterback — have been at the varsity level, Milpitas had gone 0-3 in Central Coast Section championship games and 0-2 in regional playoffs games. The latter included a 27-24 defeat in Moraga to close the 2015 season. So Bracy’s mission was simple: Don’t be denied. And he wasn’t. Tariq rushed 36 times for 311 yards and four touchdowns as Milpitas won 52-38 to advance to the CIF 4-A State Bowl Championship against Southwest-El Centro on Dec. 16. It was an especially good week for Bracy as he also officially committed to Notre Dame. Bracy also plays cornerback on defense, a position he may be more likely to play for the Fighting Irish.
