This week's list is led by three local commits who each had monster efforts during the first round of the playoffs:
5. Tanner Mangum, 6-3, 185, QB, Eagle, ID (committed to BYU)
Mangum's Eagle High School team was dealt its first loss of the season, falling to Mountain View 37-16. BYU's top quarterback commit went 33-55 for 386 yards and a touchdown in the defeat.
4. Chase Hansen, 6-4, 205, QB, Lone Peak HS (committed to Utah)
Hansen again led the Knights to a blowout win, this time against Hunter in the first round of the state playoffs. Although he threw two interceptions and had a fumble, the Utah commit completed 13 of 18 passes for 223 yards and three touchdowns in Lone Peak's 51-6 victory.
3. Nick Vigil, 6-3, 183, RB, Fremont HS (committed to Utah State)
Vigil ran the ball 19 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns during his school's 43-15 win over Brighton. The Aggie commit has had a monster year, leading Fremont into the playoffs as one of the favorites to win it all.
2. Jamaal Williams, 6-2, 190, RB, Fontana, CA (committed to BYU)
Williams was the model of efficiency, running the ball eight times for 105 yards and three touchdowns. He only played in the first half due to Summit's 63-0 win over Bloomington.
1. DJ Nelson, 5-9, 185, QB, Logan HS (committed to Utah State)
Big numbers aren't unusual for Nelson, but he outdid himself this past Thursday in Logan's 56-22 win over Herrimann. He had 17 carries for 185 yards and two touchdowns and another 284 yards and six on 25-34 passing.
