In one of the closest votes since we launched this feature last spring, California wide receiver Jake Calcagno edged Leigh quarterback Aiden Williams for Bay Area News Group boys athlete of the week honors.
Calcagno had 5,362 votes (38.11%) when the voting ended at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Williams finished with 5,082 votes (36.12%).
Monte Vista quarterback Dyllan Devitt took third.
Calcagno, a senior, caught three of Teddy Booras’ four touchdown passes in a 48-20 victory over Antioch last weekend, including one from 42 yards that gave the Grizzlies a 14-8 lead.
Congratulations to Calcagno, Williams, Devitt and the other candidates recognized for the week of Aug. 30-Sept. 4.
