The Bee's Jeff Caraska shares five lessons learned from last week's football matchups.
Five lessons from last weekend:
Burbank's 5-foot-9, 190-pound running back Isaiah Williams proves there's quite a difference between tall and big, which he was in the Titans' 26-19 win over Grant.
Logic dictated Franklin's Kyran Harris stopped running at some point, but there was no stopping him against Nevada Union. His 240 rushing yards and three touchdowns stood as proof.
If Pleasant Grove sophomore Chad Phillips was nervous about attempting a 22-yard, game-winning field goal with eight seconds left, it didn't hinder his kick, which was true, as the Eagles defeated Lincoln of Stockton 22-21.
A week after Justice Shelton-Mosley scores a season-best six touchdowns against Lindhurst, teammate Quinton Kirk scores a season-best five in a 41-0 win over Modesto Christian. If it's a competition between the two, the opposition is losing.
Call this trial by fire: Del Oro and Granite Bay play a difficult nonleague schedule, start a combined 1-7, and then outscore their first-round playoff opponents by a combined 97-21.
