Oregon Enters Fall and Friday Night’s Best is Back For Week One Round Up

September 3, 2011

Dirk Knudsen Editor

Steven Long:  Lake Oswego;  The power house back showed no signs that the new Laker Offense or the new level of competition will even phase him.  He proved with 4 TD’s and a grinding running effort that he is as good as it gets here in Oregon.  Long had 4 TD’s and at times was unstoppable.  All of that came against a Central Catholic defense loaded with D-1 talent.  Great job Steven Long with 110 yards and 21 carries for his 4 TD’s.

Alex Matthews: Lake Oswego:  The Senior QB finally got his shot as a starter and shined.  He was poised and even though he did not make all the throws he carried his team.  Top marks for leadership and two very nice TD Passes to Stevie Coury and Zach Walen.

O’Line for LO:  Here is a bunch of guys that while challenged from a size perspective worked as a unit and stood up to the best Defensive front in the State potential.  They established themselves as a unit and as a formidable group which bodes well for them long term.

Nicholas Rothstein; Jesuit:  Rothstein did what we knew he could and would.  He Dominated.  As a stand in QB for the Crusaders he had his first start and manned up big time.  Passing wise he was 3 for 5 for 112 Yards and 2 TD’s.  His legs added another 235 yards and 4 Td’s and it appears that he is ready to lead this talent loaded team all year.  Most of this he did in the First Half!  WOW!  Good job Rocky!

Thomas Tyner and Cory Sinner: Aloha Warriors; Two great efforts for two terrific Juniors.  Tyner goes for 200 YDs on 20 carries on his way to 2 TD’s and proved he can bang the rock inside.  Sinner was 9-10 and had almost 130 yards and two TD’s!  Great effort overall by the Warriors who dominated Lincoln!

Skyview Storm VS Sherwood Bowmen:  Epic Battle in a game that Sherwood won 27-24.  Sherwood QB Dust Crabtree threw  for 248 yards and a TD.  That is a terrific job in a run first offense.    Parker Henry had 135 Yards rushing and a TD for the Storm and Kieran McDonagh did a great job leading the Storm.  Hats off to both teams for such a great effort.

Benny Wick; Tigard Junior:  Junior Benny Wick ran for 200 yards and two scores on 19 carries for the Tigers before coming out of the game in the third quarter.  He helped lead the Tigers past Southridge 49-41 in a real thriller.

Reza Aleaziz, Southridge Junior QB:  Completed 18 of 30 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns, and also ran for a score.  Wow way to go Reza!

Jack Singler; South Medford; Big Jack threw for 342 yards and five touchdowns, including an 80-yarder to Matt Retzlaff.  Best Qb Performance of the Night from the Pocket!

Matthew Retzlaf; South Medford; Over 200 yards of offense in a terrific 2 way performance.

Dane Poorman; Sunset Senior QB; Dane Poorman threw for 186 yards and three touchdowns in the Apollo win over Gresham Friday.  Nice work Dane!

Sam Riddle; Century HS QB:  He threw for 248 yards and tossed five touchdowns to four different Century Receivers.

Darnell Adams; Newberg Senior QB,  three for two touchdowns and ran for one.  He is a major talent.

Danny Grigsby of Crescent Valley: Danny ran for 162 yards on 23 carries as the Raiders from Corvallis beat Jefferson.

Chad Oldson; Thurston: 13-for-20 for 224 yards and three touchdowns.

Devn Chappell; Thurston: 6 Catches for 100 yards and 2 Touchdowns

McKenzie High Schools Will Totten:  Clean guy was 7-for-8 passing for 290 yards and four touchdowns in McKenzie’s 64-6 win over Alsea. Totten also had four touchdowns with 115-yards rushing on four carries for the Eagles in the win!

Dillon Miller; Sheldon High QB:  244 Yards passing; multiple TD’s in a dominating performance.

Jordan Visarraga; Williamette:  255 Yards Rushing and 4 TD’s in a Dominating Performance mostly in the first half.
