  • Video: Ryan Robards, Elk Grove's most versatile player

    In Elk Grove’s 41-14 rout, Robards rushed for 277 yards and three touchdowns, caught a touchdown pass, had an interception, forced a fumble and kicked two field goals, including a school-record 51-yarder with plenty to spare to end the half. And he still had enough energy to shake hands with Lincoln’s players.
