Sac-Joaquin Top 5: Receivers

We are happy to say that for the seventh straight year the CalHiSports.com web site and Cal-Hi Sports is part of the weekly Final Quarter high school football show on Friday nights on the FOX 40 station in Sacramento.

On last week’s fifth show for the 2019 season, we revealed our list of the top five wide receivers (with one tight end) in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section for this season. Here is what that countdown revealed:

1. Elijhah Badger (Folsom)
Yes, this is an easy one. Elijhah is a three-year standout for the Bulldogs and has 18 D1 offers with Oregon, USC and Arizona State among them. He had what proved to be the game-winning catch last week in win over Oak Ridge.

2. Trevor Pope (Tracy)
He has committed to Oregon State and had five TD catches in his first four games.

3. Kaleo Ballungay (Kimball, Tracy)
He’s actually a tight end, but wanted to include him on this list. Kaleo is the top tight end in the section who has committed to Cal. He had several catches shown on last week’s show in team’s loss to Sierra of Manteca.

4. Jadyn Marshall (St. Mary’s, Stockton)
Just a sophomore, Jadyn had nine catches for 233 yards in his first game against Pittsburg and then scored four TDs against Central Catholic. Also an elite athlete in track-and-field.

5. Lawrence Harris (Downey, Modesto)
In his first game when Downey beat Manteca in overtime, Lawrence caught five TD passes (which is a number that gets him into the state record book). Avant Jacobs (Oak Ridge) also could have been in this spot.

This 30-minute show is twice as long as any other Friday night high school football show in the Sacramento market and is returning to the Friday at 11 p.m. time slot.

Watch this week’s show Friday at 11 p.m. for all the local highlights, plus the next Top 5 from CalHiSports.com, which will be a look at the top five offensive linemen in the section. The show will include highlights from all of the biggest games in the region, including the Fan Favorite Game of the Week. Thanks to host Jim Crandell and the FOX 40 team for once again letting Cal-Hi Sports be part of this year’s show.
