Seasons are wrapping up ’round most parts, but we still got some good updates out here. Weekly reminder that the star of this show is Zach Price of the Blue Collar Club! He does all the writeups with the of the BCC. Let’s get into it.
TE – Chandler (AZ)
ATH – Mission Viejo (CA)
Anderson wouldn’t let Tolmaire get all the spotlight as he finished with 4 tackles and a sack in Mission Viejo’s win. A first-round matchup between the Diablos and Sea Kings should be a good one!
QB – Corona Del Mar (CA)
Annett picked the right time to have his best game of the season. The Sea Kings’ Quarterback went 16-29 for 233 yards and 4 touchdowns in their 42-28 victory.
The win was enough to squeak Corona Del Mar into the playoffs where they will face off against Paraclete (7-3).
WR – Burley (ID)
Gatlin concluded his playing days as a Burley Bobcat with a 48-12 loss to Bishop Kelly in the 4A state playoffs. Unsurprisingly, the fastest kid in high school football had both touchdowns in the game. Brandon Walton wrote a nice piece on him as he wraps things up:
WR – Mansfield Timberview (TX)
Mansfield Timberview lost their first game of the season, 27-37 to Richland. And yet, our boy Cameron still balled out. He had 5 carries for 37 yards, going with 2 catches for 60 yards and a TD. I don’t know about y’all but I honestly put more stock in stats in losses than wins. Playing with adversity impresses me, and Cameron has that gene, people.
ATH – Corner Canyon (UT)
Believe it or not, the game between the 9-1 Chargers and the 1-9 Lancers was not close. Caywood and Corner Canyon won by a score of 52-0. Corner Canyon did not post defensive stats. I imagine that was out of respect.
The Chargers continue their playoff run against Lone Peak – who pulled off an upset against Mountain Ridge to advance.
DL – Thompson Falls (MT)
Thompson Falls saw their season end with a 0-43 loss to Rod Lodge/Roberts (again with the double name high schools!). However, it was decisively NOT Hayden’s fault. He finished the day with 19 tackles and 3 TFL. Next stop: spring ball on the Blue!
WR – Archbishop Riordan (CA)
Jackson and the Crusaders fell in a close one (20-27) to St. Francis. The Crusaders will begin playoff prep for Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory (takes way too long to type for an 0-9 team).
LB – Oregon City (OR)
Remember what I said about losses? Oregon City lost 13-52, but Clay had both of the TDs. He’s also an Avalos recruited LB, so there’s plenty to look forward to. While you wait, check out his senior season highlights:
DL – Borah (ID)
Trevor saw his season come to an end with Borah’s 15-30 loss to Rocky Mountainin the 5A state playoffs. In 10 games, he racked up 90 tackles (7TFL), 16 sacks, and had 2 fumble recoveries. In my humble opinion that is very good.
RB – Rancho Verde (CA)
Our newest addition to the 2024 class had a solid game last weekend. In a close loss to the Coyotes of Orange Vista (The school, not the air freshener it sounds like) Dylan had 83 yards and TD on 16 carries. Good stuff.
CB – Mission Viejo (CA)
Our Bronco duo in the Diablos secondary are really starting to hit their stride. Tolmaire accumulated 9 total tackles, including one for a loss, in Mission Viejo’s 52-6 drubbing of Capistrano Valley. Mission Viejo will begin their playoff campaign against Palos Verdes on Friday.
DL – Centennial (CA)
Centennial has refused to give me content all season…until the final game! Despite a 23-16 loss to Frontier, Warkentin was able to find his way to the end zone! There is so much beauty to high school announcers and their calls.
To top off his weekend, Warkentin took his OV to Boise State. Check some content from his trip!
IOL – Queen Creek (AZ)
Queen Creek lost on Thursday to 6-2 Highland by a score of 42-13. Despite a 3-6 record, the Bulldogs will begin their playoff quest against the American Leadership Academy. I don’t know what nonsense that is, but it appears the Bulldogs will have their hands full.
