Glendora’s Braydon Brus rushed for 983 yards and 17 touchdowns averaging over seven yards per carry from his running back position. But he was recruited as a linebacker.
That’s because as a linebacker he racked up a total of 125 tackles (53 solo) in 11 games. Brus also had three sacks along the way and picked off a pass. Brus also returned kickoffs and punts including seven punt returns for 142 yards. He also returned two kickoffs for 110 yards. A Player of the Year is recognized for stats that are so far off the charts that they’re hard to ignore. An MVP is a player that does everything extremely well. That was Brus. Glendora finished the season 11-1 overall. The Tartans went unbeaten in the regular season and finally fell in the second round of the CIF Division 3 Playoffs to Apple Valley 17-15. It would be hard to imagine Glendora’s sucess without Brus who did everything for the Tartans except play trombone in the marching band. Even in the season ending loss on the road at Apple Valley, Brus recorded 16 total tackles and rushed for 81 yards. In the first round playoff victory over Downey, Brus ran for 172 yards and three touchdowns. Next year Brus will be playing for Northwestern as he continues his football career. For 2021, Braydon Brus is our Mid Valley MVP.
