Santa Ynez senior Clay Hanly sets state record with 8.5 sacks

The FNH Player of the week is Santa Ynez defensive lineman Clayton Hanly who had 8.5 sacks on Friday night in a 40-14 win at Santa Maria. Pirates head coach Josh McClurg says the high school sports website, Cal-Hi Sports has verified that Hanly set a state record for most sacks in a game. Hanly had 13 tackles total, 10 of them were for a loss. "The game was a bit of a blur, I don't even remember. I lost count of how many sacks I had. I was just playing, just going play by play trying to do the best that I could do and it just worked out the way that I had eight and a half sacks" said Hanly.

Hanly was unhappy with his performance in the first half, "I felt very sloppy with my technique and I knew I could have done better. We go in at halftime and coach challenged me to be a lot better and be the best I can be and I did my best to make him happy" said Hanly.

The 6'4", 240 pound senior now has 11.5 sacks and 46 tackles for the season. He was also named Male Athlete of the Week by the Northern Santa Barbara County Roundtable.

Santa Ynez volleyball player Ariel Johnston was named Female Athlete of the Week to make it a clean sweep for the Pirates at the weekly awards ceremony. Johnson helped Santa Ynez to wins over Morro Bay and Templeton. The senior had 21 digs, 21 service receptions and 3 aces in the win over defending Los Padres League Champion, Templeton. The Pirates are now 6-0 and all alone in first place in the LPL.
