From controversial Joe Mixon of the Cincinnati Bengals to new kickers Aldrick Rosas and Rigoberto Sanchez of the New York Giants and Indianapolis Colts, congrats to all of those NFL rookies from California high schools making their debuts this weekend. This column this week also includes updated state record lists for most receiving yards (single game), most TD catches (single game) and most yards total offense (individual/single game). We have a state record tie for receiving yards. Plus, we go over other new entries into the record book in three other categories.
Note: All state record-related posts (including this one with opinion items) for the rest of the season will be for Gold Club members only. The first run-through of CIF state bowl game projections will be free, but the rest of those will be Gold Club as well. You can still sign up today for just $9.99 for three months, which by the way will carry you through most of the current season. For details, CLICK HERE.
You never know how an NFL career is going to pan out. Even some who were never picked in the draft end up being great players and having great careers.
To all those from California high schools who are rookies in the NFL making their first appearances in games this weekend, good luck and go get ‘em.
Some of those in this group, like former Mr. Football State Player of the Year Adoree’ Jackson of the Tennessee Titans, we’ve been following for many years. Others, like emerging DB Jamal Agnew of the Detroit Lions, who went to the University of San Diego after high school, not so much.
