The weekend's best in football

From Press Democrat Assistant Sports Editor Jared Cowley:

Before the weekend is over, I wanted to give some credit to our local athletes who excelled on the gridiron in Friday’s games. As always, if we have a name wrong or are missing an athlete who deserves mention, let us know. You can always e-mail us at, or you can post a comment at the end of this blog. If you see your brother, son, boyfriend, or buddy on this list, let them know about it. Also, don’t forget to vote in the poll on for the weekend’s best performer (there are five athletes for you to consider). Anyway, without further delay:
