(Thanks to CIF Central Section historian Bob Barnett for contributions)

Frankie Ayon (Redwood, Visalia)
The Rangers’ QB passed for two career highs of 405 yards and five touchdowns, both of which are tied for second best in school history, during 46-35 win over Tulare. Teammate WR Kobe Garner also had seven receptions for 201 yards and one touchdown.

Hank Bachmeier & Maurice Bell (Murrieta Valley, Murrieta)
In one of the top passing performances in the nation last week, Bachmeier passed for 477 yards and four touchdowns during a 50-49 loss to Grandview of Colorado. Bell was his leading target as he caught 11 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns with Marquis Spiker also catching seven passes for 172 yards and two scores. It takes 470 to get onto the all-time state single game list so Hank’s total makes it by seven yards.

Trent Borger (Rancho Buena Vista, Vista)
Averaging almost 65 yards per reception, he caught four passes for 259 yards and one touchdown as the Longhorns lost to Vista by a 25-14 final score.

JT Daniels (Mater Dei, Santa Ana)
He already is the favorite for State Sophomore of the Year and could even play his way into contention for Mr. Football State Player of the Year. Daniels passed for a season-high 403 yards along with five touchdowns during a 48-0 win over La Mirada. Through three games, he has passed for 1,129 yards and 17 touchdowns with just one interception. Since he played as a freshman, Daniels also seems like a lock to end his career with 15,000 yards or more.

These two sophomores earned a spot in the state record book as Glasper connected with Jalen Williams for a 99-yard touchdown during a 26-6 loss to Denair.

William Green (Santa Margarita, Rancho Santa Margarita)
Seeing all sorts of green in front of him when handed the football during a 48-35 win over Alemany of Mission Hills, he rushed for 240 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries.

Najee Harris (Antioch)
Making the most of his one half of playing time during a 48-14 win over San Leandro, he made sure the fans got a show as he rushed for 255 yards and three touchdowns.

Kyle Jones (Upland)
Putting up huge numbers rushing the football during a 44-34 win over Redlands East Valley of Redlands, he turned his 20 carries into 211 yards and two touchdowns.

Jordan Mims (Menlo-Atherton, Atherton)

He also finished with 284 yards and four touchdowns on 18 carries during a 49-0 win over Sacred Heart Cathedral of San Francisco.

Marlon Moorer (Rancho Verde, Moreno Valley)
He was more than complement to QB E.J. Stewart in RV’s 50-30 victory over Burroughs of Ridgecrest. Moorer rushed 22 times for 247 yards and three TDs and he caught four passes for 40 yards. Stewart had 300 yards passing and two scores.

Raul Sandoval & Daniel Moraga (Pacifica, Oxnard)
Showing he was a threat to run or pass, Sandoval passed for 258 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 123 yards during a 48-29 win over Camarillo. Yes, that is the same Camarillo team that went 15-1 last season and won the CIF Southern California Division II-AA title.
