OVERALL MVP- Chance Miller Chance Miller 6'0" | WR Canby | 2021 State OR WR 21’ Canby- The returning 1st team all TRL receiver continued his tear at the 5A level, accounting for 3 TDs (13,65) with a 63-yard punt return to the house. This after taking a kick back 100 yards last week.
Luke Roberts RB/LB 21’ Mountain View- Not a lot of folks know about him playing out in Central Oregon but Roberts is a 6-2 200-pound workhorse, carrying the ball 20 times for 146 yards and 5 TDs, in the teams 55-27 comeback win over Aloha.
Cole Prusia Cole Prusia 6'3" | DB Tualatin | 2022 State OR WR/DB 22’ Tualatin- The T-Wolves are loaded and Prusia is the real deal. He finished with 8 receptions for 169 yards and 3 Td’s in the teams 41-28 win over North Medford. When all is said and done he will be a multi offer D1 athlete.
AJ Pugliano TE/WR 24’ North Medford- Remember the name as Pugliano projects as a big time recruit out of Southern Oregon. The freshman phenom caught 7 passes for 121 yards against one of the state’s top teams in Tualatin.
Mikey Gibson Mikey Gibson 6'2" | QB Canby | 2022 State OR QB 22’ Canby- One of the region’s fastest rising recruits went off last week in the teams 48-0 win over Hillsboro, going 12-14 for 256 yards and 4 TDs. Gibson is a phenomenal overall athlete with comparisons to multiple former PAC 12 QBs (Kevin Riley, Sam Noyer). Both coached by Canby’s Jimmy Joyce.
Jordan King Jordan King 6'3" | WR Central Catholic | 2022 State OR WR/OLB 22’ Central Catholic- Just to reiterate King will be a double digit D1 offer athlete when all is said and done. He caught two more TDs in week 2, giving him (4) on the year, in CC’s 41-0 win over Sandy
Owen Hawley Owen Hawley 6'3" | WR Newberg | 2021 State OR WR 21’ Newberg- Not a lot of people know about Hawley but he is legit. The 6-3 2nd team all-conference returner accounted for 167 yards receiving and a TD in the teams 38-8 win over Liberty. This could be the best NHS team in some time.
Jackson Jones Jackson Jones 6'0" | QB Tualatin | 2022 State OR QB 22’ Tualatin-The Tualatin Junior is one of the top QB’s in the NW for his class, and he put his talent on display last Friday breaking multiple records. On the night he finished 17-26 for 360 yards and 5 TDs.
Donald Stephens Jr. RB 23’ Grant- Potentially one of the best backs to come out of Oregon in some time. The Sophomore looked the part rushing for (2 TDs) in the teams 60-20 win over Roosevelt.
Sabastian Peiffer Sabastian Peiffer 6'2" | LB Gladstone | 2021 State OR RB/LB 21’ Gladstone- As mentioned numerous times Peiffer should be considered a 4A conference and state POY candidate. His 4 rushing TDs (two over 45+) helped the Gladiators beat North Marion 48-8.
Gavin Knights Gavin Knights 5'8" | ATH Thurston | 2022 State OR ATH 22’ Thurston- Expect to hear a lot about this kid at the 5A level this Spring. His 130 yards rushing and 3 TDs were just a glimpse of what he can do in space, in the teams 43-6 win over Willamette.
Cooper Gobel QB 22’ Banks -The Braves continued their dominance at the 4A level, with Gobel passing for 354 yards and 5 TDs all in first half. Incredible numbers with Banks beating Valley Catholic 48-0.
Luke Borchardt Luke Borchardt 6'5" | WR Grant | 2021 State OR WR 21’ Grant- Give the Idaho Vandals credit for getting on this kid early. His 5 catches for 150 yards and 2 Td’s put him in the conversation among the state’s top WR’s. The Generals blasted Roosevelt 60-20.
OVERALL MVP- Spencer Kuffel Spencer Kuffel 6'1" | DB Tigard | 2021 State OR Safety 21’ Tigard- From a recruiting standpoint he is potentially the biggest steal state wide for the 2021 class. Kuffel missed his entire junior season due to injury, after an all-conference TRL sophomore season. On Friday he put on a show with 3 INTs, including an 85-yard TD return to the house from his safety spot.
Malik Ross Malik Ross 6'0" | ATH Tualatin | 2022 State OR ATH 22’ Tualatin- Both Ross and Prusia project as legit D1 athletes. Expect numerous colleges to be up in the mix and vying for their services. Malik picked off 2 more passes, after rushing 15 times for 152 yards and a TD, in the teams 41-28 win over North Medford
Jason Davis Jason Davis 6'2" | LB Jefferson | 2021 State OR LB 21’ Jefferson- This kid was everywhere in the Demos heart breaking loss to Barlow. Davis finished with 20 tackles (14 solo), 1 sack, and 3 tackles for loss as the Bruins scored with 13 seconds left to beat Jeff 26-18.
Drew Bennett WR/DB 22’ Westview – This kid is in the conversation for conference and state POY honors right now. He is having that type of season. Separate from the #s he has put up on offense (11 rec, 245 yards, 2 TDs) in 2 games, he has 7 tackles, 3 INTs and 2 Td’s on defense as well.
Zac Waible Zac Waible 6'3" | LB Lakeridge | 2022 State OR LB 22’ Lakeridge- One of the most exciting kids to watch in Oregon on the defensive side of the ball. He was a bright spot with 11 tackles and 2 forced fumbles, the teams 41-2 loss to #1 West Linn.
Ryles Buckley CB 22’ Hood River- Not a lot of people were aware of Buckley including myself. That said as the underclass DB had a monster night with 3 INTs & a fumble recovery in the teams 22-0 win over Redmond.
Dane Sipos Dane Sipos 6'0" | DB Lebanon | 2021 State OR Safety 21’ Lebanon- The Oregon walk on continues to impress. His 13 tackles and 2 tackles for loss were a highlight for a defense which had 38 points dropped on them in the loss to Dallas. Sipos also accounted for 2 offensive TDs (73,6).
Jack Nehler LB 21’ Gresham- Somewhat of an unknown Nehler accounted for 13 tackles (7 solo) and 1 sack, as the Gophers lost to Lincoln 21-0
