Senior Tj Jones of Boulder is again having a very good season. The back is one of Colorado’s most versatile performers combining speed and size. At 205 pounds, the big back runs in the 4.4-4.5 range. Over the past two weeks Jones has rushed for 411 yards and six scores. Jones is also contributing on defense, grabbing an interception in the win over Thornton.
Longmont, now 3-0, has a very diverse set of performers on offense paced by senior running back Conlon Berger. This weekend, in the 42-7 victory over Broomfield, Berger scored three times and had 141 rush yards on 19 carries.
Few rush yards were more important than the 189 yards Horizon running back Cade Verkler had against Fairview. Rushing 35 times, Verkler moved chains, controlled the clock and kept the always explosive Fairview offense off the field in a tight Horizon W.
There may not be any quarterback in Colorado with a hotter hand than Vista Ridge senior Elway Tubbs. In a big win over Ponderosa, Tubbs threw for over 400 yards and six scores. Most impressive, so far this season, Tubbs is hitting on nearly 74% of his passes with only one interception. Vista Ridge junior Marquez Trunnell, at 6-2 190, is a player to watch as he becomes one of Tubbs’ go to receivers. In the win over Ponderosa Trunnell had 12 catches and two scores.
Pine Creek quarterback Brock Domann threw for three scores as 4A #1 Pine Creek stayed undefeated with a win over Dakota Ridge.
Rock Canyon, now 3-0, posted a 28-0 win over Castle View this weekend. Junior receiver Eric Hommel had seven receptions for 106 yards in the victory.
Cherry Creek receiver Ammon Johnson had two touchdown grabs as his Bruins defeated Jordan, Utah in a hard fought 38-35 win.
Palmer Ridge is currently 3-0 paced primarily by senior quarterback Isaiah Sanders who has already compiled over 1,000 yards of offense and 12 scores this season. Friday, in a win over Lewis-Palmer, Sanders had a huge game throwing for 440 yards and four scores.
