Rolandiss Whitener did a little bit of everything for Arcadia. He ran the ball, caught the ball, returned kicks and punts and played defense as well. There’s no truth to the rumor that he also set up the pylons before the games.
He had 20 carries for 222 yards and four touchdowns rushing and had 651 yards and four TDs receiving. He racked up another 715 total yards in kick off and punt returns. 516 of those yards came on kick off returns.
“He was a deadly return man,” said Arcadia head coach Andrew Policky.
Defensively Whitener had 44 total tackles and three interceptions from his defensive back position. Oh and by the way against Muir he threw the ball- a 61-yard pass on a trick play that went for a touchdown.
In a memorable season for the Apaches as they advanced to the CIF Division 8 Finals before falling to Kaiser, Rolandiss Whitener provided many memorable moments from all over the field.
He is our 2018 Mid Valley Most Valuable Player.
