State Stat Stars of the Week
Riverside Norte Vista’s Eric Melesio goes past 3,300 yards rushing with another big night while Cade Henjum of Saddleback Valley Christian gets close to 5,000 yards for passing and rushing.

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week
Yeah, we do try to avoid picking the big-time recruits for these honors in favor of those that might more need the love, but just couldn’t resist a salute to what Oaks Christian’s Michael Pittman Jr. did in his final prep performance. Others gaining honors are from Hayward, Loomis, Galt, Redondo Beach and San Diego.
