VALLEY CENTER — David Last was just a kicker last season, and a darn good one.
This season, Last has added a few things to his bag of tricks. Kicking, however, is still his forte.
The Valley Center High senior booted a 47-yard field goal with 37 seconds remaining Friday night to give the Jaguars a hard-fought 31-28 victory over Los Alamitos.
The game, however, was far from over at that point as Los Alamitos (3-1), the No. 5-ranked team in the Division I bowl rankings according to Cal-Hi, drove to the Valley Center 28 and had one last-gasp pass with seven seconds to play. But Last stepped in front of a Dylan Lagarde pass to end the threat and seal the game for the Jaguars (4-0).
“Was that the biggest kick of my career?” said Last, who booted six kickoffs out of the end zone, averaged 38 yards on three punts and caught four passes for 61 yards. “Yeah, I’d say so.
“I had a feeling the way the game was going that it might come down to a big kick in the fourth quarter. I was confident I’d make it.
“I’m telling you, Los Alamitos is easily the best team we’ve played.”
