Deleon had more than 300 yards of total offense and six touchdowns against the Spartans. He was 8-of-11 passing for 204 yards and four touchdowns. He also carried the ball six times for 118 yards and two touchdowns, including a 94-yard scamper. In 2017, Deleon passed for 236 yards and one TD, and he rushed for minus-18 yards.

With starting tailback Dawaiian McNeely still nursing a shoulder injury and unable to carry the ball, Jacklich shined in an expanded role for the Raiders. He had a career-best performance, carrying the ball 25 times for 173 yards and three touchdowns in a 33-20 victory over St. Mary's. He gained most of those yards in the second half as Central Catholic abandoned the pass and challenged the Rams to beat them at the line of scrimmage. The Raiders outscored St. Mary's 13-0 in the second half. To vote for Jacklich, click here.
With the Chicken Ranch Casino Game of the Week hanging in the balance, Warren was a one-man wrecking crew, taking the Bears on his shoulders in a 47-44 victory over Downey. The senior quarterback engineered two scoring drives in the fourth quarter and sealed the game with a first down with less than 2 minutes remaining. Warren had 156 rushing yards and two touchdowns, a 65-yard TD pass to Ezra Morales, and an interception. To vote for Warren, click here.
