Sun Valley Middle-Schooler, Toney McFadden, hits the big time!

Back on November 3, 2018, I'm shooting the middle school championship game between Sun Valley and Holy Trinity, and I'm floored by the incredible performances I witnessed from some of the middle school Spartans.  

Within 24-hours of the game's conclusion, I call my good friend, former NY Jets/Minnesota Vikings LB, Don Jones to share my observations and clue him two to three kids he will need to cover soon.

Don is the co-founder of Under the Radar Sports Media Group a go-to for any student-athlete looking for instant exposure. Granted, they are not interested in just any student-athlete they are looking for those hidden gems and great skill players who haven't received attention for whatever reason. 

Back to the Sun Valley game and my conversation with Don- I start gushing about SV's QB and RB, Carson Black & Toney McFadden respectively. We spent a good thirty minutes discussing the qualities and skills I witnessed, and the rest is history.

I sent the clips I had of SV's #34 (McFadden) and Under the Radar produced (below) the rest. Within 24hrs over 8,900 views. As I wrote on Twitter, "The sky is the limit & our county rushing records are in jeopardy with this one."
