PARADISE, Calif. -

This week's KRCR News Channel 7's Player of the Week can use his arm and his legs to score touchdowns for the Paradise Bobcats.  Quarterback Kenny Bengson showed off his versatile skills in the Bobcats' 47-46 win over Chico High School

"The defense couldn't really get going but our offenses were both really explosive," said Bengson.   He ran for three scores and passed for another.

"They're both fun, but I think passing is kind of cooler," said Bengson.  "We don't throw much so that's probably why. But rushing is cool too."

Bengson and his teammates are still motivated by  their loss earlier in the season to arch-rival Enterprise, a stinging 5-touchdown defeat that still gnaws at the Bobcats.

"It kind of puts a chip on our shoulder, I guess you could l say.  We can't have another disappointment like that."

Come playoffs, perhaps Bengson will get another chance to take on Enterprise.
