(KBOI) - It's time to announce our DQ athlete of the month, and with so many fall sports seasons coming to a close in November it was tough. But, Leighton Vander Esch is this month's winner.

Leighton led Salmon River High School to their second-straight Class 1A Division 2 football title. That's eight-man ball where everybody plays both ways, even quarterbacks like Vander Esch hence the neck roll. It's not common for quarterbacks, but neither is his power-back style of play.

Salmon River out-scored their opponents 166-32 during the state football tournament, which is more than five to one.
