Here’s our top 10 list of players to watch during this week of high school football.
1. Jacob Galloway, Banning, RB
This is an easy pick for No. 1. Galloway ran for 385 yards last week and scored four touchdowns in a 54-40 win over the North Torrens. What do they have this week as Banning visits Palos Verdes.
2. Ashley Tucker Jr., Leusinger, QB
Tucker has made a great number of appearances for Olympians this season in every sport, both on land and in the air. He is leading the Olympian in another tough fight on the road this week against Bishop Amat.
3. Aidan Jackson, San Pedro, QB
Jackson threw five passes last week, completing all five going for touchdowns in four over Bell. What if he tries to pass 10 this week? Jackson and the Pirates is hosting Dorsey.
4. Seth Schig, Lawndale, QB
The freshman quarterback is taking offense for the Cardinals and through two games, he is showing that the future is bright. Lawndale hosts the cathedral.
5. Jet Pedi, Torrance, QB
Jet has made a strong start to tartars. The senior quarterback has hit 11 touchdowns and nearly 1,000 yards. Pedi leads the Tartars against Garda this week.
6. Carson Hollandsworth, South Torrance, RB
The Spartans will be looking to bounce back from last week’s loss of St. Pius X-St. Matthias. Hollandsworth (seven touchdowns) could be the right man to lead the way to victory against Peninsula.
7. Sincere Rane and Kai Honda, Cera, RB
We are grouping these two together. They are both part of Cera’s backfield in running back and should be instrumental in their struggle against Carson.
8. Casey Pavlik, Mira Costa, QB
Pavlik completed 20 of 25 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns in a game the Mustangs should have won against Parakelet last week.
9. Nathan Chavez, Mary Starr, RB
Chavez started the season with 124 yards against Marshall and 264 yards against the Alhambra. Last week, he was limited to just 34 yards against Torrance. Can he get back on track against the viewpoint?
10. Mason Gonzalez, Peninsula, RB
Gonzalez ran for 100 yards and two touchdowns against West Torrance last week. He would like to duplicate those numbers on the road against South Torrance this week.
