Reserve, La. — To close-out the regular season, Riverside Academy quarterback Gage Larvadain was best. Larvadain completed 9 of 17 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown, and he also rushed 24 times for 136 yards and four touchdowns. Riverside Academy upset Country Day, and they were led by a quarterback who is 5 foot 7, and weighs 145 pounds.
“I think I am good for high school,” Larvadain said. “But if I ever wanted to play college football, I probably had to get stronger.”
Larvadain, who is also the point guard for the Rebels’ basketball team, is a natural leader– and a risk taker.
“He’s a little bit of a gambler,” said Riverside Academy Head Coach Kevin Dizer. “As the head coach and offensive coordinator, it drives me crazy a little bit. For every simple play, he`s made, he probably made five huge plays doing that way.”
