We aren’t doing a column this week, but wanted to record more of these totals onto the site from last week’s football games. This list doesn’t include any SoCal/NorCal players of the week and for those from the CIF Central Section see separate post on this blog. Even more players are mentioned in our various State Top 50 team highlight writeups. We follow state stat stars each week in support of our exclusive Cal-Hi Sports State Record Book and are adding categories to the on-line files all the time.
Keyshawn Ashford (Woodside Priory, Portola Valley): This is from 8-man football in the CCS. Ashford had 21 carries for 227 yards and three TDs and had a 79-yard kickoff return TD in wild-and-wacky 68-66 loss to Pinewood of Los Altos Hills. Earlier this season, Woodside Priory won an 8-man game 92-0 vs. Crystal Springs Upland.
Isaiah Baker (Ramona, Riverside): The big news after Baker had 43 carries for 249 yards and all three TDs in team’s 19-14 win against Patriot of Riverside was that the result helped create a rare five-way tie for the River Valley League title. Ramona, Patriot, Hillcrest, Norte Vista and La Sierra all ended 3-2 in league games.
