Woodcreek Timberwolves Lenny Nelson (2) takes the ball 46 yards after a catch in the fourth quarter on Friday night, September 19, 2014 in the game between Ponderosa and Woodcreek at Woodcreek High School in Roseville.

The Bee Prep Show hosts Joe Davidson and Mike Finnerty present this week's show from Capital Christian High School. Football highlights include Ponderosa at Woodcreek and Vacaville at Granite Bay.

In volleyball, Rocklin sweeps Christian Brothers and Bella Vista tops Ponderosa. In soccer, Bella Vista upsets Capital Christian.

We'll introduce you to Placer High's Capra brothers, Pleasant Grove volleyball star Sumeet Gill sparks the rise of Eagles volleyball, and we talk about some of the Sacramento Bee's all-time great high school football players.

American River College is ranked fourth in Northern California in the JC Athletic Bureau Top 20 and fifth in the state after a 3-0 start under first-year coach Jon Osterhout.

San Mateo is the state poll leader for the first time after routing defending state champion and national powerhouse Butte 51-6 in Oroville. San Mateo last lost in 2013, to Butte 28-20.

ARC, led by quarterback Tanner Trosin and an attacking defense, suddenly faces the meat of its non-conference schedule, hosting longtime national powerhouse City College of San Francisco, ranked second in NorCal and third in the state, on Saturday at 6 p.m. and taking on San Mateo on Oct. 4.

How good is San Francisco under coach George Rush, in his 37th season? The Rams have won nine national titles (five since 2000), 13 NorCal titles since 1997 and five state championships since 2000 and seven over all.
