Offensive Player of the Week

Jamire Calvin
(Cathedral, Los Angeles) Sr.

One week after the super-quick, super-elusive Calvin caught eight passes for 231 yards and one TD, he arguably did even better when the Phantoms (2-0) blasted Burroughs of Ridgecrest 51-7.

Calvin didn’t have as many yards in his second game as in his first, but had nine receptions for 180 yards and four TDs and he also scored on a 62-yard punt return.

A member of last year’s All-State Underclass Team (Juniors), Calvin has offers from Arizona, Cal, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Stanford, among many.

Defensive Player of the Week

Mozes Mooney
(Bishop’s, La Jolla) Jr.

With back-to-back weeks of bringing back an interception for a score, it’s been a great start to the season for Mooney, one of the top sophomores last season in the CIF San Diego Section.

Mooney had his second pick six to go along with three tackles and one additional interception to help Bishop’s crush Henry of San Diego 63-0. He also scored on a two-yard run and caught a TD pass during the same game.

Mooney already has three interceptions this season. He had six last year.

Special Teams Player of the Week

Brandon Reaves
(San Clemente) Sr.

Coming in after a tough 51-42 loss in the season-opener to Oceanside, the Tritons needed a lift and they got it from Reaves. He took the opening kickoff and ran it back for a 96-yard touchdown, leading San Clemente past Huntington Beach 38-13.

Later in the same game, Reaves had a 55-yard touchdown run, caught three passes for 35 yards and returned an interception for a 20-yard score.

Reaves was known mostly for offense as a junior. He rushed for 644 yards and 10 TDs and caught 43 passes for more than 600 yards and 11 scores.

Offensive Player of the Week

Tyree Bracy
(Milpitas) Jr.

We don’t think many in NorCal were bracing for an upset of state-ranked Antioch last Friday, but with Tyree leading the way the Trojans got their big win to shake up this week’s NorCal and state rankings.

Bracy, in his first year as Milpitas’ starting quarterback, threw for five touchdowns and ran for another in a 49-28 victory over the Panthers, who couldn’t keep up even with Mr. Football sensation Najee Harris getting 34 carries.

Bracy completed 11 passes for 284 yards and ran for 28 yards on 12 carries for Milpitas. He connected with twin brother, Tariq, for one of the scores.

While Tyree isn’t as well known (yet) to recruiters, Tariq, was a sophomore standout last season who was named to the Cal-Hi Sports all-state underclass squad.

Defensive Player of the Week

Edwin Amuneke
(Natomas, Sacramento) Sr.

The senior two-way standout for the Nighthawks was a force on both sides of the ball during a 21-14 victory vs. Valley of Sacramento.

Defense is what got him this honor and against Valley he had 13 total tackles and caused one fumble. In the same game, Emuneke had 21 carries for 160 yards rushing and caught 10 passes for 85 yards.

In the team’s first game, a 29-18 loss to Pioneer of Woodland, Amuneke had 13 tackles, blocked a field goal and scored a rushing touchdown.

Cal-Hi Sports Northern California
Special Teams Player of the Week

Devin Hardaway
(Liberty Ranch, Galt) Sr.

We had one of our six honorees coming last week from a team that didn’t win and we’re doing it again with Hardaway.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound senior banged home three field goals with one of the kicks going through the uprights from 50 yards out during the Hawks’ game vs. Los Banos. The only problem is that Liberty Ranch didn’t score any other points and fell to the Tigers 12-9.

Hardaway made two field goals, including one from 45 yards out, in Liberty Ranch’s first game, a similar 13-9 win against River City of West Sacramento.
