Central Lions: Devan Powell (Jr) Breakout Sophomore season for the 6’1 170 dual threat QB. 1461 yards passing/ 459 yds rushing with 21 TDs. Had a season high 274 yds passing in the 1st round of playoffs with 3 Tds vs Riverdale.
Pickens Dragons: Sam Streicher (Jr) 1353 passing/ 155 rushing with 14 TDs. A lot of big WR’s return for the rising Junior in 2022. 2nd Season under Grant Myers and the Dragons moving to AAA should allow for some big numbers.

Sonoraville Phoenix: Jaxon Pate (Jr) A lot of buzz about this young guy in ’21. 2193 yards passing with 658 yds rushing. Accounted for 31 total TDs. Had a season high 425 total yards and 5 TDs vs Coahulla Creek to end the season. Preseason All State Baseball player as well.
