STATE STAT STARS OF THE WEEK

It's Wheat and Wild with a major boot and a couple of 8-man wonders thrown in.

(Games of Oct. 3-5)

Sergio Aguayo (San Jacinto): We tabbed Sergio for a spot on last year's all-state underclass team as a kicker. He's on his way to this year's overall squad, especially if last week's 57-yd field goal is an indication. Sergio's big boot came in a 16-10 loss to Beaumont.

Tony Alaniz (Montebello): Scored a school record six TDs while rushing for 181 yards on 14 carries as South El Monte fell to his onslaught 48-7. His TD runs were of 39, 3, 5, 16, 4 and 14 yards.

Bryen Blankenship (Westmont, Campbell): Yet another top-notch QB from the Bay Area, Blankenship fired few blanks, instead going 17 of 28 for 268 yds and three TDs, and also rushed for 40 yds and two TDs as the Warriors blanked Del Mar of San Jose, 37-0.

Sam Cheatham (San Leandro): Caught nine of Dennis Dixon's passes for 170 yds and three TDs in a 56-14 rout of Hayward Tennyson.
