Vineland High School alum, Isiah Pacheco, has a big role in the Kansas City Chiefs Wild Card round win over the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night.
The former Vineland star rushed 24 times for 89 yards and a touchdown, helping the Chiefs advance to the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
The second-year man, who played his college ball at Rutgers, had a solid year for the Chiefs, running for 935 yards and seven scores, adding 44 receptions for 244 yards and two touchdowns.
A 2022 seventh-round pick of Kansas City, Pacheco did a little bit of everything during his high school days at Vineland High, playing quarterback, running back, and defensive back for the Fighting Clan.
As a senior, he rushed for 1,414 yards and 18 touchdowns, adding 598 yards and three touchdowns through the air. During his junior season, he rushed for 1,107 yards with 15 touchdowns.
With Houston's upset win over Cleveland, Pacheco and the Chiefs will face either Buffalo or Pittsburgh in the Divisional round of the playoffs next weekend.
