Long Beach Poly Jackrabbits (7-1, ranked #2 in CIF-SS Division 1, ranked #11 in nation by USA Today)

#1 WR Desean Jackson – one of the top receivers on the USC wish list, Jackson is a smooth route runner with terrific hands. Also a talented baseball player who will likely get drafted next summer. Will choose primarily from Cal and USC. 36 catches for 615 yards and 6 TD's.

#20 LB Jason Brown – nice athlete with size who doesn't have any offers yet but he continues to get a lot of attention from the Trojan staff. 38 tackles (20 solo) and 1 fumble recovery.

#6 DB Laronzo Bursey – a safety who will hit you, Bursey has an offer from ASU. 56 tackles (32 solo) and 1 sack.

#7 DL Jurran Casey – he plays DE now but will be at linebacker in college. 66 tackles (41 solo) with 2 sacks.

#5 LB William Alo – a physical linebacker who leads the team with 95 tackles (63 solo) and 4 sacks.

#33 CB Vincent Joseph – they don't come much better than this junior corner. He's got terrific cover ability and speed, look for him to be very highly recruited next season. 10 tackles (7 solo) with 1 fumble recovery.

#4 WR Terrance Austin – a terrific route runner with good hands. He's only a junior and will be one of the featured players next season. 18 catches for 235 yards and 4 TD's.

#17 WR Travon Patterson – he's got breakaway speed and the Poly coaches say this junior could be the next great Jackrabbit receiver by the time his career is over. 13 catches for 251 yards and 1 TD.

#26 Troy Guthrie – he has come into his own this year as a runner, began the season by sharing time but now is the featured back. Will be a Division 1 recruit next year. 100 rushes for 769 yards and 8 TD's.

#11 CB Donovan Warren – only a sophomore, look for Warren to develop into a top corner by his senior season. Very physical and athletic. 19 tackles (12 solo) and 1 pick.

Lakewood Lancers (8-0, ranked #1 in CIF-SS Division 1, ranked #25 in nation by USA Today)

#52 LB Luthur Brown – one of the highest priorities on the Trojan wish list, Brown is an intense and fiery player who is expected to be one of the keys in this game. Luthur can rush the passer and run sideline to sideline with the best of them and his stats back that up (). Borwn will consider USC, Miami, LSU and Oklahoma for his college choice. 54 tackles (34 solo) with 3 sacks.

#55 LB Adrian McCovey – he doesn't get as much exposure as Brown does but that doesn't mean he isn't an excellent player in his own right. McCovey plays the run well and he has a tall frame that could grow into a defensive end. Adrian has offers from Oklahoma, ASU, Oregon State and one expected soon from Miami. 68 tackles (50 solo) with 3 sacks.

#11 QB Justin Wheeler – a terrific athlete and three year starter who has offers from UTEP, Idaho, Nevada and Idaho State. Also a top baseball pitcher. 59 of 94 for 851 yards with 10 TD's and 5 picks.

#2 WR Danny Hernandez – the Lancer coach calls Hernandez the best all around football player on the team. 25 catches for 353 yards and 5 TD's.

#27 RB Justin Robertson – a big 215 pound runner who can break tackles. He's only a junior and should be highly recruited next season. 135 rushes for 707 yards and 5 TD's.
