VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS — Ayers delivers big hit in championship game

Aidan Ayers was one of several Ferndale Mustangs to impress in Sunday’s Six Rivers Conference AAA championship game in Crescent City.

The Mustangs defeated the Redwood Beasts 40-16 for the championship, which was their second straight.

Ayers, an eighth grader, provided one of the defensive highlights of the day with a huge hit fro his cornerback spot.

“He’s one of the smallest kids on the team and he locked down their 6-4 receiver,” Mustangs offensive coordinator Nathan Coppini said.

Ayes is also a standout wrestler who has trained with Cass Bell at the Institute of Combat in Arcata and has already earned a reputation as a weight room stud.

According to his father Bruce, the young Ayers is deadlifting twice his body weight.

He displayed that strength with his big hit in Sunday’s game.
