Big-time stats. Clutch performances. Teams need guys to step up when it matters and those who do will snag a Shasta County Sports Helmet Sticker for the week.
We look at not just who compiled the best stats, but who made an impact on the game and, as always, we accept coach nominations.
Here’s this week’s SCS Helmet Sticker recipients
Kitt McCloughan, QB, West Valley – The Redding Rancheria Player of the Game, McCloughan guided the Eagles to a 20-point, fourth quarter comeback in a 20-14 win over Foothill in the Tri Counties Bank Game of the Week. He made the throws he needed to in the second half, completing 7 of 13 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown against a Foothill defense that was daring him to throw.
Hayden Boyes, WR, West Valley – The main target for McCloughan in the come-from-behind win over Foothill, Boyes hauled in five passes for 182 yards and one score as the Eagles moved to 2-0 on the young season.
Bryce Henderson, RB, Foothill – The senior running back bullied his way to 84 yards on the night, owning the first three quarters of the Cougars’ loss to West Valley. He ran 27 times for 84 tough yards and two scores.
Tate Fagan, RB/S, Shasta – Maybe the fastest guy on the field for the Wolves, the junior ran for 91 yards and a score, added an interception and would’ve posted a punt return TD if not for a penalty negating the play.
Nathan Bova, RB, Shasta – The senior had four scores in two weeks for the Wolves. In the blowout win over Corning, Bova had 59 yards rushing on five carries and a TD to go with two catches for 45 yards and a 20-yard TD strike from Derek Myers.
Isaiah Pena, LB, Shasta – The Wolves’ senior middle linebacker had 10.5 tackles in just over two quarters of play in the blowout win. Pena posted seven solo tackles and assisted on seven more.
Keiton Spengler, DE, Shasta – The senior had eight tackles for Shasta, while also snagging two fumble recoveries in just over one half of play.
Riley Seay, WR/LB, U-Prep – The diminutive Panther had more than 200 yards of total offense. Seay took the opening kick back for a score and added 32 yards rushing and nearly 100 receiving in U-Prep’s wild 49-48 victory. He earned Shasta County Sports Player of the Week honors for his efforts.
Trevor Trueblood, QB, U-Prep – The Panthers’ field general was 9-for-21 passing for 218 yards and two scores as he guided his team to a wild 49-48 home win in his first start at quarterback.
Devin Wilson, RB, Anderson – Wilson took full advantage of teammate Cody Crawford being down with an injury by rushing for 120 yards and two touchdowns on an astounding 25 carries.
Marquice Crowell, WR/DB, Anderson – The third-year varsity starter showed why he is the returning receiving leader in Shasta County. Crowell hauled in five passes for 112 yards and scored on a 65-yard touchdown catch.
Hayden Crook, RB, Burney – The junior ran for 144 yards on 13 carries and two TDs as Burney ended a nearly two-year losing streak. He added a 32 yard touchdown catch for the Shasta County Sports Team of the Week.
Connor Pfadt, QB, Burney – The Raiders’ signal-caller threw for 54 yards and two scores, while adding 81 yards rushing, including a 54-yard TD scamper.
Kade Crowell, RB/LB, Central Valley – Picked up a blocked punt for a scoop-and-score to get the Falcons on the board and open the Aaron Richards era with a win.
Kevin Seaman, QB, Central Valley – The Falcons’ signal caller racked up an astonishing 24 carries for 76 yards and a touchdown — all team-highs. He added another 45 yards passing and a touchdown through the air in the 26-0 season-opening win against Trinity.
