LATEST: Chicago Cubs slugger Kris Bryant has been voted NL MVP, and Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout is the AL winner for the second time in three years.
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Students at Bonanza High School have had their eyes on the Chicago Cubs all season long because of 2010 Bonanza High School alumnus Kris Bryant, who helped lead the Cubs to its first World Series win in 108 years.
Bryant has had a breakout season and the current players at Bonanza High School use him as their daily inspiration.
"I try to push myself each day to be a mirror image of him, but it's hard because talent like that doesn't come often," said senior Danny Ruiz.
"A guy that good came from a school that I'm going to," said senior Torren Brozowich.
Bryant's former high school coach has nothing but fond memories of the 24-year-old All-Star. He says the 2010 salutatorian was a superb athlete, but an even better person.
"He didn't let his ability make him separate himself from the rest of the team like oh I'm better," said Bonanza High School Coach Mike O'Rourke. "That's definitely not Kris."
Cubs fans also celebrated the win at Brando's, a sports bar off Blue Diamond Road.
