With 5A in disarray (I’m currently struggling with my 5A rankings) Pomona and senior Alec Feland stay the course. Feland threw for 241 Yards, 198 to favored target Mitch Collin, pushing the Panthers to 2-0 with a 41-29 win over Cherry Creek.
Also holding the fort in 5A is Chaparral at 2-0. This week Max Kuhns had 271 pass yards and 2 TDs. Go to receiver, tight end Mitch Parsons, had six catches for 162 yards in the mild upset over Grandview Thursday.
Rifle runner Ryan Moeller continues his assault on the record book having already rushed for over 660 yards and 10 scores on the season. Moeller is averaging a staggering 18.5 yards per carry.
Derek Jackson of Pueblo West rushed for 192 yards in a lopsided win over Rampart. The senior is averaging over 200 yards rushing per game.
Boulder’s Demetrius Kennedy continued his big play antics in a win this week over Prairie View rushing 13 times for 174 yards and two scores, with a long on 63 yards. On the season Kennedy is averaging over 17 yards a carry.
Feauto to Martin is fast becoming a common place call for announcers of Fairview football games. In an exciting 34-31 win against Overland, sophomore Johnny Feauto, on the way to 381 pass yards, hooked up with junior receiver Sam Martin nine times for 158 yards. As impressive as the performances were potentially the best player on the field was sophomore Overland QB Austin Conway who rushed for 187 yards and threw for 145 while scoring three times.
Denver South is currently 2-0 having scored 94 points in its first two wins. Numbers like that from South usually find their catalyst in senior, CU bound back Phillip Lindsay, but thus far this season quarterback Malik Tollerson is leading the charge, passing for 540 yards and nine scores on 22-27 passing against no interceptions. Tollerson’s primary recipient has been senior Orlando Mosley who is averaging a staggering 41 yards a catch and has scored three times on seven receptions.
Senior Anthony Davis of Fountain-Fort Carson is not new, but beating Columbine in a hard fought, physical contest is. Davis, in the 35-21 win over the top ranked Rebels, scored two on the ground and caught a pass for a score.
Sophomore Jaden Franklin rushed for 271 yards and four scores for Kent Denver as they won this weekend 41-6 over Florence.
Junior QB David Sommers threw for three scores and ran for another as Holy Family defeated D’Evelyn 38-30.
Junior wideout Anthony Holmes of Gateway had four rec eptions for 135 yards and two scores moving the Olympians out to 2-0 on the season with a win over Northglenn.
Trey Fleming of Silver Creek, a 6-2 senior, had a big weekend making nine catches for 160 yards and two scores as the Raptors defeated Centaurus 46-12.
