A shifty and quick 5-foot-8 running back, Cabral rushed for 105 yards and three touchdowns and caught a touchdown pass in a 49-7 victory over Ponderosa on Friday, keeping the Cougars’ playoff hopes alive.
Cabral, a junior, earned The Bee’s Prep of the Week honor through voting on sacbee.com.

Del Campo coach Mike Dimino said Cabral has had a great season, has been a workhorse and is “a great young man.”
It’ll be Cabral and the Cougars against unbeaten Antelope this Friday night. Del Campo (3-4) closes the regular season against Oakmont and Bella Vista, needing to finish with a 5-5 record to have a shot at the postseason.
Del Campo seeks its 13th playoff appearance in 14 seasons.
