Published : Sunday, August 26, 2018 | 7:10 AM

Name: Andreas Solling
School: Pasadena
Grade: Senior
Sport: Football
Position: Quarterback

Accomplishment: Solling would be the first to tell you he didn’t play his best game, but the results and his (and the team’s) effort are much more important than what just one win might indicate. PHS was coming off a 42-7 thumping in week zero to San Marino, and after thinking they’d have a home game and having to travel instead, Pasadena earned a 14-12 victory at Maranatha. It’s the first time the program has been at the .500 mark since September 4, 2015. The senior quarterback completed 10 of 15 passes for 135 yards and his 65-yard, third-quarter TD pass to Mekhi Fox and the point after turned out to be the game winner. Solling’s 1-yard TD run accounted for the Bulldogs other score.
