When it comes to Najee Harris, we feel like we could make him our SportStars of the Week every issue — at least during football season.
The Alabama-commit has been an absolute force for a Panthers team which is undefeated through its first eight games.
Harris was just recently named the National Player of the Week by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl after rushing for 360 yards and six touchdowns in a 55-37 win over Liberty-Brentwood on Oct. 23.
He also contributed six 2-point conversion runs in the game to account for 48 of his team’s 55 points.
On the season, Harris has rushed for 1,844 yards and 22 TDs. He’s scored 198 points, which ranks him second in the state according to all stats submitted to MaxPreps.com.
Chaffey-Ontario running back Mikey Dean (33 TDs) has 204 points on the season.
Brook Starn: The Monte Vista-Danville distance running standout continued her strong senior year by coasting to a victory in the Division I-II race at the prestigious Mt. SAC Invitational. She finished the 3-mile course in 16 minutes, 55 seconds — 25 seconds ahead of the next finisher.
Avery Spector: The St. Francis-Sacramento senior and No. 1 singles player led the Troubadours to a share of the Delta League title with a 12-2 dual match record, and reached the league singles final for the second consecutive season.
Drake Stallworth: Folsom’s junior defensive back assisted a hard-fought 28-14 victory over Rocklin with a pair of interceptions, including a pick-six that opened the scoring in the game. Stallworth has 5 INTs in 8 games and has 4 total TDs this season at DB and WR.
