Former Azusa football standout Kendrec McDade was shot and killed on Friday night by Pasadena police.
McDade was an all-Montview League standout in 2009 after rushing for 1,345 yards and 15 touchdowns. Azusa went 11-2 that season.
“I am shocked, I never would have forseen this,” Azusa coach Joe Scherf said. “The thing I will remember about Kendrec, for football reasons, was the kid was always very committed.
“He always gave 100 percent in everything we did on the field. He was one of those kids you could count on. I knew he was going to be there if we needed him. He was tough, He played through injury. He played sick. He did some amazing things on the field for us.”
McDade came up big for the Aztecs during the 2009 postseason. He ran for 479 yards and six touchdowns in the playoffs as Azusa reached the Mid-Valley Division semifinals before losing to eventual champion San Dimas.
Aram’s take: Always sad to hear about the WAY TOO EARLY passing of one of our former SGV gridiron standouts, no matter the circumstances.
