STATE STAT STARS OF THE WEEK

Receiver makes it into the state record book with 314 yards, players from Redding, Arbuckle and Madera each score six times and also included is someone who makes us think of the 1960s TV series, "Hogan's Heroes."

(Games of Sept. 18-20)

Ryan Allen (Capital Christian, Sacramento): Completed 14 of 33 passes for 312 yds and three TDs, including the game-winner in a come-from-behind 20-19 victory over Calvary Temple of Modesto.

Brody Angley (Enterprise, Redding): Scored six TDs, four rushing, one on a pass reception and one on a pass interception for 47 yds, in a 62-0 romp past Anderson.

Jimmy Barnes (Los Alamitos): The junior completed 17-of-26 passes for 293 yards and three touchdowns as the state's No. 2 team defeated Brea Olinda, 24-14.

Robert Becker (Kennedy, La Palma): Senior standout had a few sterling outings last year, but already has outdone himself this year. Although Kennedy came up short in a 34-23 loss to Canyon of Anaheim, Becker was 21-of-36 for 403 yds and two touchdowns.

Shawn Benjamin (Watsonville): The 6-1, nearly 200-pound Benjamin rushed for 255 yds and three TDs on 12 carries as the Wildcats edged Castlemont of Oakland, 34-32. The week before, in Watsonville's first game, a 69-22 win over Woodside, he rushed for 312 yds and six TDs, also on 12 carries.

Seth Blackamore (Lutheran, Orange): Blackamore, a junior, completed 17-of-27 passes for 295 yards and two touchdowns as the Lancers rolled to a 51-6 win over Long Beach Millikan. He also ran for 58 yds.

Daniel Bocanegra (Serra, San Mateo): Rushed for 108 yds and a TD while passing for 259 yds and three TDs in leading Serra past Aragon of San Mateo, 41-7.

Jesse Brooks (Bishop O'Dowd, Oakland): Scored five TDs, including one on a 85-yd kickoff return, in a 50-15 trouncing of Hayward Tennyson.

Cody Calhoun (Madera): Scored six touchdowns last week as the Coyotes ran past Tulare Western, 45-27. Calhoun is now second on the school list, behind the eight scored by the legendary Kent Nance in 1960.

Marcus Crockett (St. Bernard, Playa del Rey): In a wild 35-34 victory over Torrance, Crockett cashed it in for five TDs and rushed for 259 yds.

Sharrod Davis (Monte Vista, Spring Valley): Piled up 142 yds receiving on six catches with two TDs as Monarchs' receiver beats Oceanside at its own game in upset. Monte Vista won, 33-13.

Matt Downing (Coast Union, Cambria): Downing had defenders frowning with 33 carries for 273 yds and four TDs as Coast Union toasted Laton, 54-15.

Michael Dunn (St. Monica, Santa Monica): Caught the ball in play 11 times -- eight as a receiver and three on picks as a defender -- during St. Monica's impressive 42-15 win over El Segundo. Dunn also had 147 yds receiving and scored three TDs.

Tanner Elliot (Kennedy, La Palma): Caught 13 balls for 314 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-23 loss to Canyon of Anaheim. Elliot's receiving yardage total ranks No. 8 on the all-time state list for a single game. It's not an Orange County record, though, as that mark of 377 yds set in 1996 by Ramon Nevarez of Garden Grove Bolsa Grande also is the all-time state best.

Matt Falkowski (Lassen, Susanville): In Lassen's 36-6 triumph over Chico, Falkowski carried 27 times for 265 yds and four TDs.

Ben Galbraith (Colfax): Passed for 271 yds and four TDs on 17 completions out of 35 attempts as the Falcons downed Golden Sierra of Garden Valley 27-12.

Brett Jackson (North Hills Christian, Vallejo): Here he is again, this time for a 402-yd, five-TD passing performance (he completed 18 of 38) that led to a 33-14 victory over Calistoga.

Josh Johnson (Golden West, Visalia): Set a new school record with 386 passing yards as the Trailblazers dropped a shootout, 43-42, to Reedley. Johnson, who went mostly to Juan Valdez (9 catches, 160 yds, 1 TD) and Kris Tomlinson (8 catches, 154 yds, 2 TDs), broke the old school mark of 353 yards set in 1987 by John Bratsch.

Kyle Legere (Norco): Junior running back caught five passes for 107 yds and two TDs and rushed for 185 yds on 22 carries with two additional TDs in Norco's 42-28 triumph over Ayala of Chino Hills.

Derek Liephardt (Bell-Jeff, Burbank): Lept past defenders to the tune of 244 yds on just 11 carries and scored five TDs as Bell-Jeff rang the bell of Claremont Webb, 55-18.

Marshawn Lynch (Technical, Oakland):Carried 25 times for 217 yds and four TDs as Tech downed De Anza of Richmond 47-14.

Scott Mosbacher (El Dorado, Placerville): Had a lot of chances in a 41-0 loss to Oakmont of Rosevulle but nevertheless made 17 tackles.

Sean Norton (Hart, Newhall): Weekly update for this super senior QB was 21 of 39 for 389 yds and five TDs in a 41-34 loss to St. Bonaventure of Ventura. All that despite very tender ribs from an injury he suffered the week before in a game against Los Alamitos.

Chris Patino (Wilson, Los Angeles): This school is no stranger to passing success and Patino is the latest who may put up big numbers. He connected on 30 of 44 passes for 375 yds and four TDs last week as the Mules munched L.A. Poly, 31-15.

Maurice Purify (Eureka): Scored on a 77-yd pass reception and intercepted two passes, returning one 90 yds for a TD, as the Loggers out-defensed Shasta of Redding 27-15.

Kevin Retoriano (Clairemont, San Diego): This retro man had retro stats for a school that was 1970s San Diego power. In a 34-14 triumph over Clairemont, Retoriano carried 18 times for 218 yds.

Reggie Ryan (Piedmont Hills, San Jose): Completed 18 of 37 passes for 252 yds and four TDs but the Pirates lost to San Mateo 35-34 when a two-point conversion pass failed.

Thomas Sims (Napa): Big-time LB-FB type did it mostly on offense last week as the Indians outlasted Buhach Colony of Atwater, 42-34. Sims carried 20 times for 230 yds and scored a pair of TDs.

Cody Stone (North, Bakersfield): Had a perfect night last week against Highland of Bakersfield, going 8-for-8 on passing attempts for 256 yards, as the Stars rolled to a 49-21 victory.

Nick Sula (Lemoore): Got nicked, banged up and sore after running for 243 yds on 33 carries and scoring twice, all for naught, as Lemoore dropped a 29-28 decision to Bullard of Fresno.

Matt Ticich (Chaparral, Temecula): Accounted for five TDs -- two passing and three rushing -- to lead Chaparral past West Valley of Hemet, 54-28. Ticich was 14 of 22 passing for 247 yds and ran eight times for 58 yds.
