Standouts from North, East, South, City.

Kory Fox is a three-sport athlete for the Sundevils.


Mt. Carmel

Sr. | QB | 6-1, 175

Story line: Mt. Carmel coach John Anderson calls Fox “the epitome of versatility.” Through the season’s first two games — both wins — the stats back that up. The Sundevils quarterback has thrown for 217 yards, has rushed for 96, has 24 yards receiving and has an interception while playing defense. And football isn’t his only sport. He’s also a shooting guard on the basketball team and plays center field on the baseball squad.

Family connection: Fox’s father, Mike, was a third-round pick of the San Francisco Giants out of Fontana High in 1977 and played two seasons of minor league ball. He then played four seasons as a DB at San Diego State. Kristie, the oldest of the Fox sisters, played softball at Arizona. Kellie Fox, the youngest of the sisters, was an All-Pac-10 shortstop at UCLA but has transferred to Arizona.

Rivalry week: Mt. Carmel hosts rival Rancho Bernardo tonight, with the winner taking home the Rotary Cup. The Sundevils won 30-28 on a late field goal in Fox’s sophomore season. Last season, Fox sealed a 37-24 win with a 98-yard interception return. “This is a big game,” Fox said. “This is a big season. This group of seniors went 10-0 as freshmen, so we’re looking for a championship-type season.”



Sr. | ILB | 6-2, 215

Committed to Stanford as a linebacker (also plays tight end), Perez has seven tackles and a sack in two wins for the Lancers, who will try to stave off Santa Fe Christian’s upset bid.



Sr. | RB | 5-11, 190

An all-league selection last season, Holiday leads the Cardinals’

offense with three touchdowns. Orange Glen will try to contain his speed.


Bonita Vista

So. | RB | 5-9, 170

He’s averaging more than 5 yards a carry to lead a Barons offense that will be seriously tested by the physical defense of North County power Mission Hills.



Sr. | RB | 6-1, 180

Hard-nosed runner gained 1,370 yards last season, averaging 9.1 a carry with 16 TDs. He’s more involved in the passing game this season.
