La Quinta’s Diego Amaya earns most votes, wins play of the week for game-winning TD against Palm Desert

Diego Amaya's dream week continues.

Prior to Friday night's Flag Game, Amaya, a senior, had never caught a pass in his varsity career.

That changed Friday late in the 4th quarter as Amaya scored a 55-yard touchdown that ultimately helped La Quinta take down their biggest rival in Palm Desert.

On Monday, Amaya was awarded for his memorable play, earning the most votes over the weekend to win our high school football play of the week.

The high school football play of the week is voted on by viewers over the weekend after Friday night's action. The winning play is always announced on the following Monday on KESQ News Channel 3.
