Usually, when I put together my list of five players for this series of stories, I don't have too much trouble picking out the five guys. After the Mounds View and Buffalo game Friday night, that was not the case. II could have added at least three other guys to this list – plus an entire offensive line. Here is who I narrowed it down to.

Mateo Cisneros – Mounds View defensive back

Especially in the first half, Cisneros stood out by being in the right place at the right time. He intercepted an overthrown pass in the first quarter. Later in the half, he did it again. He picked off another overthrown ball, but this time he found space to run. He picked up about twenty yards before being knocked out of bounds. Cisneros made his impact felt on special teams too. He returned a punt for twenty yards. Late in the game, he had tight man-to-man coverage on a fade into the end zone and batted the ball away from the receiver. Although Cisneros made some plays on him – there was no doubt Buffalo quarterback Aiden
