Valor Christian QB Luke Del Rio throws perfect game for his Eagles.

Friday, 2013 quarterback Luke Del Rio of Valor Christian did what few quarterbacks at any level achieve as he posted a perfect game. In a rout of Colorado Springs Doherty High School, Del Rio went 12 of 12 for 196 yards and four touchdowns. For any one keeping track that is a QB rating of 173.

As great as those numbers are, they have become the norm of late for Del Rio who is completing 67% of his passes on the season. Over the past three games Del Rio has been on a tear completing 37 of 43 with eight touchdown passes against only one interception.

During the past three games Del Rio has relied on the steady hands of running back Christian McCaffrey and senior receiver Alex Ulmer. McCaffrey and Ulmer, during this period, have caught a total of 20 passes.

As playoffs quickly approach, Valor is in the thick of a wide open Colorado 5A division, so Del Rio’s continued high level of play is a necessity if the Eagles look to win a fourth straight state title.

Next season Del Rio heads to Oklahoma State to compete with a bevy of young QBs as primary throwers J.W. Walsh and Wes Lunt return in Mike Gundy’s offense that is not afraid to throw the ball.
