Our 2023 Preseason All-NorCal Roster adds some offensive firepower on the outside as we detail our top receivers and tight ends for the upcoming season. Heading the list of receivers might just be a pair of teammates out of Windsor.
Atop the tight end list, both literally and figuratively, is Oak Ridge standout Kaleb Edwards. He’s coming off of a 7-TD season for the Trojans.
DAVEN AMOS (Clayton Valley-Concord) | Sr.
One of several tall, athletic options in the Ugly Eagles’ passing attack this year, Amos hauled in 86 passes for 1,164 yards and 12 TDs as a junior.
HAYDEN ANDERSON (Windsor) | Jr.
Still only a junior, Anderson grabbed 46 passes for 957 yards and 10 TDs while also rushing for 522 yards and 10 more scores in 2022.
DAI’TORIAN BROWN-LAW (Whitney-Rocklin) | Sr.
6-foot-4 target will look to make an impact for the Wildcats before taking his talents to Campbell next year.
DARIUS DOYLE (Kimball-Tracy) | Sr.
One of two Jaguars receivers to record over 1,000 receiving yards in 2022, Doyle leads a talented group of returning pass catchers.
TYRONE JACKSON (Riordan-San Francisco) | Sr.
Another highly touted playmaker for a group of Crusaders primed to take a step forward; enters the year as team’s top returning pass-catcher.
CHRIS LAWSON (Riordan-San Francisco) | Jr.
One of the Bay Area’s most significant transfers, the former Foothill star and East Bay Athletic League Valley Offensive and Defensive MVP will play a pivotal role on both sides of the ball for the Crusaders.
JAYTHN LONG (Lincoln-Stockton) | Sr.
Sacramento State commit had interest from a number of West Coast schools; caught 31 passes for 536 yards as a junior.
MATT LONG (Vista del Lago-Folsom) | Sr.
Air Force commit hauled in 18 touchdowns and over 1,000 receiving yards for the Eagles in 2022.
COLE OWENS (Casa Roble-Orangevale) | Sr.
Emerged as the Rams’ top target in 2022 with 52 receptions, 1,320 yards and 18 TDs; will renew his partnership with QB Connor Campbell this year.
TREVOR ROGERS (Acalanes-Lafayette) | Sr.
Cal-bound speedster will be a primary option in the Dons’ two-quarterback system; caught 58 passes for 1,120 yards and 15 TDs in 2022.

Notre Dame commit is one of the top receiver recruits on the West Coast after hauling in 54 passes as a junior.
ANANIAS WALKER (Windsor) | Sr.
Rancho Cotate transfer will pair with Hayden Anderson to form one of NorCal’s most imposing (and heavily recruited) receiver duos.
ELIJAH WASHINGTON (Castlemont-Oakland) | Jr.
One of the OAL’s top all-around athletes has garnered plenty of attention on the recruiting trail; will make a mark in a number of spots for the Knights.
KALEB EDWARDS (Oak Ridge-El Dorado Hills) | Jr.
6-foot-7 two-sport standout had a breakout summer and is on the radar of schools across the country; caught seven TDs as a sophomore in 2022.
KELLAN FORD (Monte Vista-Danville) | Jr.
Tight End HS adds another big name with the 6-foot-6, 225-pound junior who is already garnering recruiting buzz.
COLE HARRISON (Serra-San Mateo) | Sr.
6-foot-5, 215-pounder owns multiple scholarship offers and should be a top target for NorCal’s top team.

Oregon State commit caught 40 passes for 557 yards as a junior in 2022.
ALEK MARSHALL (Menlo-Atherton-Atherton) | Sr.
