OVERALL MVP- Joey Olsen WR Lakeridge 24’- Olsen could be one of the top WR’s in the nation for his class. It’s incredibly rare to see a freshman play at this level. His 7 receptions for 170 yards and 3 TDs, in the 35-21 loss to Lake Oswego, speak to that.
Devin Bradd Devin Bradd 5'10" | RB North Medford | 2021 State OR RB North Medford 21’- Bradd is finishing up a phenomenal career at North. On Friday he carried 38 times for 306 yards and 4 TDs in the heartbreaking 35-34 loss to South Medford.
Thomas McNamara Thomas McNamara 5'11" | DB West Linn | 2021 State OR Safety West Linn 21’- The unanimous first team all-league returner has played lights out all year long, and continued that trend with 8 tackles and an INT return for a TD in the 40-13 win over Oregon City.
Gabe Olvera Gabe Olvera 5'10" | RB Lake Oswego | 2022 State OR RB Lake Oswego 22’- One of Oregon’s breakout players of the year. Olvera went off again totaling 237 total yards (19 carries /137 yards, 5 receptions/100 yards) and 3 TDs in the 35-21 win over Lakeridge.
Price Pothier Price Pothier 5'7" | RB Newberg | 2022 State OR RB Newberg 22’- The 5-7 back just continues to dominate. He is definitely one of the more underrated players in the NW. On Friday he rushed for 299 yards and 3 TDs, helping the Tigers to one of their biggest wins in school history 34-28 over Mountainside.
Colt Musgrave Colt Musgrave 6'2" | LB Bend | 2021 State OR LB Bend 21’- The Lava Bears haven’t had a great season, but Musgrave might be the state’s defensive POY. He has personally been dominate each week, and someone I would declare maybe the biggest steal of the 2021 class, with his commitment to Idaho. He added 12 tackles (5 solo), 3 tfl’s, 3 forced fumbles, and 1.5 sacks in their 15-5 win over Summit
Cole Prusia Cole Prusia 6'3" | DB Tualatin | 2022 State OR ATH Tualatin 22’- Prusia has been named the overall MVP more weeks than any other player in the state. His 157 total yards and 3 TDs on offense, with 2 PBU’s on D keeps him in that conversation again. They blasted Tigard 34-10.
Devik Chiang Devik Chiang 6'3" | WR Grants Pass | 2021 State OR WR Grants Pass 21’- A kid that I continue to consider one of Oregon’s most underrated. The 6-3 WR caught 8 passes for a career high 196 yards and 3 TDs in the win.
Gavin Haines Gavin Haines 6'1" | RB West Linn | 2021 State OR RB/LB 21’, Blake DeBisschop Blake DeBisschop 6'3" | QB West Linn | 2021 State OR QB 21’, Clay Masters Clay Masters 5'11" | DB West Linn | 2021 State OR WR/DB 21’- West Linn- If there were playoffs the Lions wouldn’t be touched this season. Haines is an absolute steal for OSU as a PWO. He went for another 175 yards with 3 scores (2 rec, 1 rush), while DeBisschop passed for 3 TDs and 250 yards, with 100 of them to Masters who has had an unreal season on both sides of the football. WL had their way with Oregon City as expected 40-13.
Brian Mannion Brian Mannion 6'3" | QB Mountainside | 2022 State OR QB Mountainside 22’- Oregon’s top ranked QB for his class. Mannion passed for 331 Yards and 4 TD’s with the Mavericks coming up short against #5 Newberg 34-28.
Chase Limbocker WR Sunset 22’- Not many folks know about Limbocker, as he burst on to the scene in the last few weeks and will be a big part of the Apollos future. The 6-1 165 pound wide out caught 6 passes for 146 yards, scoring 2 TDs for the 2nd week in a row.
Logan Smith QB 22’ Sprague / Drew Rodriguez Drew Rodriguez 6'2" | DB Sprague | 2023 State OR WR/S 23’ Sprague- A lot of credit to the Oly’s who have made a statement, going (5-0) on the year so far, with a relatively young team. One of Oregon’s fastest rising 22’s Smith threw another 4 TD passes, with Sophomore standout Drew Rodriguez Drew Rodriguez 6'2" | DB Sprague | 2023 State OR continuing to kill it on both sides of the football. He caught 2 more TDs.
Gavin Knights Gavin Knights 5'8" | ATH Thurston | 2022 State OR RB/ATH Thurston 22’- Knights has had a break out season and should be in the conversation for 5A POY. He went off against 6A Sheldon, carrying the ball 25 times for 288 yards and 3 TDs in the 45-31 win.
Jakoby Moss Jakoby Moss 6'1" | QB Mt View | 2022 State OR QB Mountain View 22’- The run heavy offense of Mt View mixed it up a little on Friday with Moss having a big night. He went 17 for 26 for 368 yards and 4 TDs in the teams 48-16 win over Ridgeview, helping them go 5-0.
Bryce Indell Bryce Indell 6'0" | RB Willamette | 2022 State OR LB/RB 22’- Definitely one of the fastest rising athletes in Oregon. Indell had 19 total tackles and 4 tackles for loss on D, while rushing for 127 yards and 2 TDs in the big 21-7 win over Churchill.
Luke Ash RB 22’ Clackamas- Ash was an unknown to start the year. That is no longer the case. He rushed for another 203 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries for the Cavs, in the 14-7 loss to #2 Central Catholic. In the last 3 games he has amassed 484 yards and 5 TDs.
Adrian Mashia Jr. ATH Aloha 21’- Most people aren’t aware but this kid can play. His 3 TDs were a highlight for the Warriors (70 punt return, 57 & 89 TD receptions) in their 40-20 win over previously undefeated Franklin.
Lucas Patterson Lucas Patterson 6'0" | DB Marist | 2021 State OR ATH Marist 21’- Patterson is one of the top players in Oregon at the 4A level. He has had an outstanding career with the Spartans and put an exclamation point on that with 4 total TDs (2 receiving, 2 rushing), in the 39-31 win over #3 Marshfield.
Hunter Gonzales QB Grants Pass 21’- The senior QB had a very efficient night, going 18/21 for 330 yards and 5 TDs with 0 INTs, in the teams 49-24 win over Eagle Point.
Kellen Humphries SS Thurston 22’- Not a lot of people know about the 5-11 185 pound safety, but he should be considered one of 5A’s best on the defensive side of the ball. He added 6 solo tackles, 1 tfl, and 1 INT in their big win over Sheldon.
