Last week on the FOX 40 Final Quarter high school football show, hosts Jim Crandell and Kristina Werner revealed a list of the top five linebackers this fall in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section, according to CalHiSports.com.
This is the sixth season that CalHiSports.com and FOX 40 have partnered together to have these SJS Top 5 lists as part of the station’s weekly high school football highlights show. Tune in on Fridays at 10:30 for the Game of the Week, top four plays and more. The top 5 list from last week’s show is later revealed on our site. For the top 5 list for this week, it will be the top five defensive backs. Check out the show to see those names revealed.
5. Zach Annis (Granite Bay)
He was off to a great start for the Grizzlies with 86 tackles and 2 interceptions in his first five games.
4. Tim Thomas (Lincoln, Stockton)
The 6-foot-1, 220-pounder has committed to Fresno State.
3. Brandon Wong (Whitney, Rocklin)
He was one of the state’s reported tackle leaders from the spring and already had 7.5 tackles for loss entering last week’s game.
2. Josh Tremain (Folsom)
Twin brother of QB Tyler Tremain has averaged 11 tackles per game combining last spring and so far this fall.
1. Justin Eklund (Folsom)
Committed to San Jose State, he had three sacks and caused two fumbles in his first four games. He and Josh Tremain will have to be very good next week going against De La Salle’s rushing attack.
