Austin Joyner, 5-10.5, 191 pounds: Coming back from a hip injury didn’t seem to bother the Marysville-Pilchuck (No. 3 in state) star too much on Friday against Stanwood. Joyner led his team to a 44-14 victory by running for 95 yards and three touchdowns, his longest of the three being a 35-yarder in the third quarter. This season, Joyner has 43 touches for 557 yards (13.0 ypc; 185.7 per game). Joyner will play cornerback for the Cougars.
Tyler Hilinski, 6-3, 200 pounds: The quarterback out of Upland High was accurate and efficient in his team’s win over St. Bonaventure on Friday. Hilinski completed 13-of-16 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown, averaging 16.4 yards per completion. The senior added a 44-yard score on the ground in the fourth quarter, providing the winning margin in the 25-21 victory. This season, Hilinski has passed for 1,052 yards and nine touchdown passes, averaging 210.4 yards per game. He has 69 completions in 103 attempts, with two interceptions. He now has two rushing touchdowns as well.
Kameron Powell (pictured), 5-10, 175 pounds: Also out of Upland High, Powell made his impact on the defensive side of the ball. Powell had a fumble recovery and four tackles, three of which were solo. This season, Powell has 30 total tackles, a safety, and has returned a punt, (which was blocked by another player), for a touchdown.
Thomas Toki, 6-1, 292 pounds: Toki and St. Francis High had a bye week. The last game for Toki and St. Francis was played on Sept. 19 against Skyline, and Toki’s school came out on top 35-7. In that game, Toki recorded four total tackles for St. Francis.
James Williams, 5-11, 185 pounds: The Burbank running back is out for the season with a knee injury. In his only game, Williams had 19 carries for 66 yards en route to a 26-14 victory by Burbank.
Dominic Davis, 5-10, 175 pounds: Also had a bye. The future wide receiver for the Cougars lit up Dorsey on Sept. 19. Davis plays both running back and cornerback for Alemany High and in the team’s most recent game, he contributed 215 rushing yards and two touchdowns. One of the touchdowns came on a pick-6 that he returned 99 yards.
Darrien Molton, 5-10, 165 pounds: Despite suffering a 41-0 loss on Sept. 19, Molton was able to make an impact in multiple areas for Chaparral High.

On defense, Molton has recorded 17 total tackles.

Matt Abramo, 6-2, 170 pounds: During the most recent matchup, Casa Grande High lost 45-10, but no stats were able to be located, (in all likelihood, Abramo made a field goal in the loss.) Casa Grande has had a rough season so far, starting 0-4. Abramo was the team’s only source of scoring back on Sept. 12 when he kicked a 30-yard field goal. He also missed a kick in that game.
Deontay Burnett, 5-11, 160 pounds: In Serra High School’s game against Sherman Oaks’ Notre Dame on Friday, Burnett had a 27-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. Prior to that, Burnett had 12 catches for 205 yards and a touchdown catch.
