Here's a trio of prep football players responsible for posting some big numbers despite limited opportunities so far during the 1990 season:
- Jordan receiver Mitch Berg has caught 18 passes in seven games. However, 11 of those receptions have gone for touchdowns.- North Sanpete quarterback John Miller pilots' the Hawks' run-oriented veer offense. But he's found time to toss 19 TD passes in seven games.
- And North Summit receiver Gary Crittenden has hauled in just four passes this season - nothing seemingly too special, not even the fact that two of the four have been touchdown receptions. However, the four catches have been good for 208 yards - of an average of 52 yards per grab.
Other top individual performances from last weekend's games, as reported to the Deseret News: Some major scoring efforts (four TDs or more) were recorded - Millard's Rick Robins threw for three touchdowns (9-of-14 for 223 yards) and rushed for another trio of scores; Bountiful's Chris Jones ran for five TDs while carrying 24 times for 162 yards; Dixie's Tyler Wilkson's 167 rushing yards included three TDs scored on the ground, plus a fourth on a reception; Jordan's Tyler Garrison threw for four TDs; Orem's Tyler Nelson rushed for three TDs and passes for another two in a little more than a half's work; and North Summit's Matt Bates rushed five times for 150 yards and four TDs.
Meanwhile, Beaver's Brandon Draper found three different ways to score - he passed for one, rushed for another, and returned an interception for a third.
Other members of last week's 100-yard rushing club included Jordan's Tommy Payne (17 rushes for 181 yards), Skyline's Jake Marshall (10 carries for 150 yards, 1 TD), Springville's John Penrod (150 yards, 2 TDs), Hunter's Auone Laumau (130 yards, 1 TD) and the Provo pair of Tony Harward and Cory Lundberg rushed for 133 and 114 yards, respectively.
