The quarterback for the Fremont High Firebirds has lead his team in the San Francisco Bay Area to a 9-0 record. According to Patch, he’s passed for 22 touchdowns and 1700 yards with only two interceptions.

“Everybody doubted us,” Tran said after the Firebirds upset the Santa Clara Wilcox 35-19. “We knew we had to come out here and execute. We struggled in the beginning, but at the end of the day we pulled off a win.”
