Legacy QB Matt Lynch as well as Valor's Dylan McCaffrey have big games.

An exciting week of football highlights some big names as well as up and comers from across Colorado.

Potentially the biggest performance of the weekend and one of the biggest of the year belongs to D’Evelyn senior quarterback Owen Burke.  In a OT 42-43 loss Burke threw for 591 yards and six scores.  Burke spread the wealth, but his primary target was Chuck Davis who had 17 receptions in the game, two of which were TD catches. 

Senior Legacy QB and UCLA commit Matt Lynch has his best game of the season throwing three TD passes and rushing for another in a victory over Mountain Range.

Is there a player in Colorado having a better season than Boulder’s TJ Jones?  A staple of the Phenoms this season, Jones is averaging over 200 yards rushing a game.  Friday Jones added to his total with 244 yards and three scores in a victory over Northglenn.

Great players go big in big games and few did better than Pueblo Central quarterback Mike Ranson.  In the historic Bell Game against rival Centennial that went to the wire with a 27-24 Central win, Ranson had 347 yards of offense and two scores.

Senior RB Jeremy Lujan of Dakota Ridge, one of the state’s best, rushed for 287 yards and four scores as his Eagles defeated Standley Lake 42-13.  Lujan also had a 72 yard kickoff return. 

Thursday, in a win against Overland, Dylan McCaffrey posted one of his best games of the season, scoring five times, three TD passes and two on the ground. 

Senior Tre’Vaughn Gonzales averaged nearly 10 yards a carry and scored two times pacing his Greeley West team to a 43-0 win over Greeley Central. 

A young Grand Junction Central team is having a solid season sitting at 4-1.  One of the keys to their success is junior quarterback EJ Barrera.  Saturday in a 42-0 win over Steamboat Springs Barrera threw for two scores and rushed for another.

Senior quarterback Keegan Wentz of Buena Vista has been a fixture in the Phenoms throughout his four year career.  Thus far this season Wentz is averaging over 11 yards a carry for his 5-0 Demons.  Wentz again paced his squad in a dominating win over Salida.

Junior quarterback Javian Byrd threw for 392 yards and four scores leading his unbeaten George Washington squad to a 36-17 win over Widefield.
