Cyler Miles 6-3 210 Mullen JR
Smooth and wise beyond his years are my descriptors for Miles. He threw only two interceptions this season as a junior. Next year, as the primary focus of the Mustang O, watch Miles put up monster numbers.
Others Considered: Brock Berglund, Sean Rubalcaba, Jaleel Awini
Chris Ashe 6-2 190 Widefield SR
This big back rushed for over 2,100 yards when every team he faced knew he was Widefield’s offense. When I recently talked to a college coach about Ashe the coach said in Yogi Berra style, “that kid is a man.”
Connor Medberry 6-2 245 Loveland SR
Similar to Ashe everybody set up their defense to stop Medberry and nobody could do it. Also was one of the state’s best linebackers. A true football player!
Others Considered: Adonis Ameen-Moore, Dan Geubelle, Cameron McDondle
Dominic Rufran 6-0 175 Palmer SR
I don’t care how or against who, get the ball in Rufran’s hands and let him make plays.
Rayshon Williams 6-1 185 Mullen SR
Returner, receiver, runner Williams did it all this year just as he has throughout his career. Also progressed as a more polished receiver.
Derek Vander Velde 6-4 200 Dakota Ridge SR
Vander Velde is the epitome of the big receiver who can make catches in traffic.
Others Considered: Will Ratterman, Ian Imamura
Justin Hansen 6-5 285 Longmont SR
Became a man this year and dominated on both sides of the ball.
Brendon Austin 6-6 275 Chaparral SR
The whole package; big, athletic and equally adept as a run and pass blocker.
Paul Thurston 6-4 265 Arvada West JR
Technically very sound, with the ability to get after people at the second and third level of the field. As he gets stronger this offseason watch out!
Justin Godfrey 6-4 250 Erie SR
Also a top defender, he was been a key component to a very good Erie run game the past two years.
Austin Traphagen 6-6 280 Yuma SR
Small ball stud has big time potential and may yet play his best football at the next level.
Others Considered: Marc Mustoe, Shane Callahan, Mark Mancinelli, Sam Carslon, Joey Tyo, Patrick Smith, Josh Perrin
