SALT LAKE CITY -- There were many top performances in-state during Week 3 of the high school football season, so naming the five best among them all wasn't easy. There looks to be a lot of talent in all regions of the state for the 2011 season.
5. Jake Arslanian, 6-0, 175, WR, Sr., Pine View
Arslanian accounted for 200 yards receiving on seven receptions during Pine View's 34-11 win over Salem Hills. Two of his receptions went for touchdowns of 18 and 82 yards, and he also returned a punt for a 70-yard score.
Arslanian has received some college interest and holds an offer from BYU.
4. Zane Munger, 5-8, 160, RB, Sr., Lehi
Munger was the bright spot for Lehi during its 31-20 loss to Orem. He rushed for 241 yards on 26 carries for the Pioneers.
3. Brian Engstrom, 5-9, 175, Jr., Alta
Engstrom accounted for 214 yards of offense for the Hawks as they blew out Crenshaw 45-14 Saturday in Mission Viejo, Calif. He scored two touchdowns early and was Alta's standout player of the day.
2. Inoke Lotueleui, 5-8, 170, Jr., Cottonwood
Lotueleui played a huge part in the Colts' 49-37 victory over Brighton. He caught 11 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns.
The Cottonwood junior looks to be one of the most exciting players in the state, putting up big numbers on a weekly basis.
1. DJ Nelson, 5-9, 170, Sr., Logan Nelson has been putting up monster numbers every week, and exploded for seven touchdowns Friday in Logan's 56-31 victory over Bountiful. He threw for 326 yards and rushed the ball 18 times for 80 yards.
