REDDING, Calif. -

Enterprise High School senior running back Jace O'Ravez scored four touchdowns in one game, to take home the KRCR News Channel 7 player of the week award.  Even more impressive, he's coming off an ACL injury last year.

"You know it felt pretty good coming out in front of this home crowd for the first time this year and really showing what we could do," said O'Ravez.

"Coming off an ACL injury is pretty tough."

His junior year was cut short by a devastating injury.  A torn ACL in the sixth game sidelined him for the rest of the 2012 season.  It's an injury that can ruin careers.

"Unluckily for me, it was on an impact play. So it wasn't a cut play, so all my cutting feels fine. It's the impact ones that scare me - when those guys go low."

He's back with a vengeance, attacking with the run game.  Against Central Valley, O'Ravez took 26-carries for 152-yards and four scores.

With some help in the backfield from fellow running back Isaiah Matthews, the Enterprise Hornets rushing attack was unstoppable.

Matthews and O'Ravez came together for 323-rushing yards against the Falcons.
