Week 5 of the once-in-a-lifetime (hopefully) abbreviated spring high school season got underway Thursday, continued Friday and extended into Saturday, giving high school football fans three days of viewing.

Here are our 20 players to watch in Saturday’s games:

Jonathon Croker Jonathon Croker 6'1" | OL Valencia High School | 2022 NM , Valencia: The Jaguars are shorthanded this spring season with fewer than 20 players. But Croker has been a mainstay along the Valencia lines. He’s drawing interest from multiple colleges, including Oberlin, University of Puget Sound and University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Paul Cieremans, Los Lunas: The sophomore quarterback is enjoying a sensational spring, leading the Tigers to victories over La Cueva and Capital. Unfortunately, we’ll get to watch him for only 3 games. Cieremans is emerging as one of the top 2023 QBs in the state.

Anthony Roybal, Belen: Belen is 2-0 with a pair of 50-0 victories over Valencia and Highland due in part to Roybal’s abilities running the football. He has 198 rushing yards and 5 TDs in two games. Now the Eagles brace for a showdown with rival Los Lunas on its home field.

Baylor Diaz, Portales: The Rams’ dual threat quarterback has run wild in Portales’ first 4 games with 445 rushing yards. Also
