Guys like Skyview High School's Austin Dodge who set almost all major NAIA records as a Raider and he led them all season and tonight.  The much lauded QB has it all going for himself and is we feel a next level kid.  He finished his career with NAIA Records:  

AUSTIN DODGE STATS:  All Time  leader in passing yards (17,250), completions (1,253) and touchdowns (154).

Dodge is 6'3"- 210 lbs and his Coach, Craig Howard, feels he can play at the next level too.  Coach Howard should know as he coached Tim Tebow and other greats during his coaching career.

On the Defensive Side of the ball it was Julius Rucker of Portland's Westview High School getting it done being named defensive player of the game.  Rucker was under recruited out of High School like so many of these Raiders and is a kid we watched grow up and play .  He had two Interceptions and a big pick 6 in the game to set the tone.  Try and watch that here
