In a lineup of the area's top football players of the past decade, Blake Truhitte will certainly stand out.
That's because he never quite looked like a football player. He certainly didn't fit the prototype at quarterback.
We are on a quest to find the Player of the Decade for 2010-2019. We will be publishing profiles on 10 nominees for the honor over the new few weeks. Then we'll ask you, our readers, to vote for the Player of the Decade. The first nominee up is Arroyo Grande's Seth Jacobs. He played quarterback, running back, receiver, tight end, safety and linebacker with the Eagles before eventually earning a starting linebacker spot at Oklahoma State.
Top-ranked Arroyo Grande edged No. 2 Oxnard Rio Mesa 7-6 at the William Woollett Jr. Aquatic Center in Irvine in the 2010 Division 4 title game, completing a divisional three-peat for the Eagles.
