Standouts from North, East, South, City.

Carlsbad senior Jordan Perez will play linebacker at Stanford.




TE-ILB | 6-2, 215

Storyline: A top-notch player on both sides of the ball, Perez has committed to Stanford, where he’ll play linebacker. He chose the Cardinal over UCLA, Boise State and Miami, which wanted him as a receiver. Perez said he’s looking into majoring in psychology or sports medicine, where Carlsbad athletic trainer Larry Dunsing has been a big influence.

Family affair: Perez’s father, Miguel, also played for Carlsbad.

Key stats: Perez has 110 tackles, 26 tackles for losses and 14 sacks over the last two seasons. He had 16 pass receptions last year and has 23 for 375 yards this fall. He has four TD catches each of the last two seasons.

Quotable: “Originally, I was looking at committing to UCLA,” Perez said. “Stanford didn’t come into play until June. Once Stanford showed interest, I knew I wanted to get a Stanford degree.”




WR-DB | 5-11, 170

Scored four TDs in a 43-0 win over La Costa Canyon. He had TD catches of 19 and 21 yards, an 80-yard TD run and returned a punt 50 yards for a score. Can El Camino stop him this week?


Francis Parker


WR-LB | 6-0, 185

Opened the scoring in a win over Horizon with a 53-yard punt return. Trailing 14-7, Abernethy returned the kickoff 93 yards for a TD. Santa Fe Christian’s special teams will be tested tonight.


El Capitan


QB | 5-11, 195

Cagle has completed 105 of 173 passes for 2,105 yards and 23 touchdowns. El Cajon Valley will be hard-pressed to stop the Vaqueros’ offense as El Capitan tunes up for the Division II playoffs.




DE-TE | 6-0, 175

One of the leaders of a defense that has allowed just 91 points this season, Santos has 61 tackles and five sacks. The Titans will try to shut down Otay Ranch.
