Over the last three games, Capistrano Valley Christian senior guard R.J Thompson has been on another level. His solid all-around performances in important San Joaquin League games at the end of the season have solidified him as our inaugural Athlete of the Week.
Thompson has recorded two double-doubles and a triple-double in his last three games, which were all Eagles (22-4, 7-3) wins.
The streak started on January 31, when Thompson tallied 10 points and 12 rebounds in a 62-41 win over visiting Eastside Christian. He then had a game-high 17 points to go along with 15 rebounds and three blocks against Fairmont Prep on February 4.
Thompson saved his best for the Eagles last regular season game as he poured in 10 points, grabbed 17 rebounds, swiped 10 steals and had five blocks in a 58-52 win over Orangewood Academy on February 4.
The Eagles finished second in the San Joaquin League standings and will be in the CIF-SS playoffs.
