Madera Coyotes

Beast mode: Coyote linebacker Jonathon Flores displayed shades of Ray Lewis in Madera’s 27-0 victory over the Skyline-Oakland Titans as he racked up seven tackles, a fumble recovery, and an interception in an outstanding performance. Flores continually made plays from his interior spot and head coach Bonner Cunnings said he was an integral part of the defense’s success.

You goin’ nowhere: Skyline-Oakland’s offense was practically nonexistent against a Coyote defense that, much like its namesake, looked like a pack of hungry animals as they spread tackles across 21 players...

Madera South Stallions

Sharing the rock: In a 27-7 loss to Selma, the Stallions also lost leading rusher Javier Moreno to an injury. While the Stallions don’t necessarily have a ‘feature back’, they do have a number of players who can carry the ball. Seniors Jacob Valladares (20 attempts, 54 yards), Freddie Montero (10-24), and Raul Ocegueda (7-26) all combined for a 100-yard rushing effort.

Sure-handed grabs: While recording four solo tackles and two assists in the game, senior middle linebacker/tight end Lawrence Mata also showed his catching ability...

Liberty Hawks

Trendsetter: Travis Jordan is well on his way to cementing his name as one of the best receivers in Liberty history. He already has eight touchdowns, which ties for the single season record and school record held by Brandon Schlueter. He is just 23 yards from breaking the school record for receiving yards in a season.

Steady defense: Led by inside linebackers Kendall Malone and Steven Clark, the Hawks limited the Blue Raiders to just 143 yards of total offense and 110 came from running back Daniel Vilella and he gained 92 yards in the first quarter...
