It’s a tradition for schools in high school and college to hand out helmet stickers for good plays, notable effort and achievements throughout the course of a season.
Shasta County Sports is on board with that mission and highlights the top performers from the previous weekend of games. Of course, the helmet stickers that SCS gives out are purely hypothetical and bring more exposure to the players who are making an impact on a weekly basis. The spring 2021 Helmet Stickers are sponsored by HomeLight, a search engine to find the best real estate agents in Shasta County.
Players are listed alphabetically by school.
Devin Armstrong | QB | Anderson | Jr.
He was 9-of-19 passing for 258 yards and a touchdown and also intercepted two passes on defense.
Mason Smith | WR | Anderson | Jr.
The wideout caught two passes for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Cubs’ 27-26 loss.
Kaeson Saelee | RB | Anderson | Jr.
He totaled 110 yards with 10 rushes for 78 yards and added 32 yards on two receptions.
Kade Crowell | RB/LB | Central Valley | Sr.
The Falcons’ captain gained 51 yards on 17 carries while going both ways. He was always around the ball on defense.
Willie Mowry | QB/DB | Central Valley | Sr.
On offense, he only carried the ball a handful of times, but made plenty of great decisions running the Falcons’ veer/wishbone offense. Defensively, Mowry came up big right before half with an interception on a ball that would’ve given West Valley the lead heading into intermission.
Jonny Mack | RB | Central Valley | Sr.
The bruising back ran for a team-high 112 yards on 18 carries. His 39-yard TD run early in the fourth quarter tied the score at 13-13.
Eli Cortinas | RB | Enterprise | Sr.
The senior back ran for 109 yards on 19 carries. He finished the season with 559 yards rushing.
DeMarreya Lewis-Cooper | WR | Enterprise | Jr.
Lewis-Cooper displayed his athleticism in the final game of the year, throwing a 31-yard touchdown pass on a trick play, running for 25 yards on two carries and catching a 64-yard touchdown. He also had a 43-yard kick return in the second quarter that put the Hornets past midfield.
Cooper Laloli | RB | Foothill | Sr.
The Redding Rancheria Player of the Week, Laloli ran 25 times for 163 yards and a touchdown and adding another 30-yard catch to down Enterprise 28-15. In the two meetings against Enterprise, Laloli rushed 55 times for 355 yards and two touchdowns — accounting for 52 percent of his rushing yards on the season.
Davis Smith | QB | Foothill | So.
Smith was 7-for-17 passing for 136 yards and turned his 11 carries into an extra 84 on the ground.
Jarius Mast | WR/S | Foothill | Jr.
After a four-interception game the last time Mast saw Enterprise, he shined on the other side of the ball this time, leading Foothill in receiving with 65 yards on four receptions.
Hayden Crook | RB | Foothill | Sr.
The 5-yard run was significant because the Burney transfer scored after the school having to leave his school when they opted out of football. He found a home at Foothill and also found the end zone.
Chris Jimenez | QB | U-Prep | Jr.
The field general was 9-of-18 passing for 111 yards and a 37-yard scoring strike.
Carter Abel | RB | U-Prep | Jr.
He led the Panthers with 107 rushing on 17 carries and a touchdown as U-Prep amassed nearly 300 yards offense.

Connor Gilbreath | DE | U-Prep | Jr.
The junior defensive end had four total tackles and three sacks in the win at Lassen and finishes his season as the Northern Section sack leader with 12.
Holden Gilbert | RB/LB | West Valley | Sr.
