ENTIRE OFFENSIVE LINE

BISHOP’S

Names coming soon

BACK ROW (L to R): Justin Woodley, Cesar Santana, Daniel Anderson, Cryus Nolan, Spencer Nolan, Spencer Pilarski, Sergio Martinez  FRONT ROW (L to R): Sahil Sheth, Christian Ford

 

Playing in their biggest test of the season, the offensive line of the Knights led them to a 35-2 win over Santa Fe Christian. They opened up the running lanes for more than 10+ yards per carry in a dominant performance to continue Bishop’s magic carpet ride of a season, allowing Bulla Graft and A. J. Britanico to both top 150 yards for the first times this season. In total, the Knights’ running backs rushed for 408 yards on 38 carries and 5 TD’s.

DEFENSE

JUSTIN WOODLEY

BISHOP’S

The linebacker set the tone early against Santa Fe Christian with a pair of big hits in the Eagles backfield. It’s arguable, that no one else on defense in the Coastal League, has made a bigger leap from his freshman to sophomore season. He dominated in Saturday’s 35-3 win with 11 tackles, 3 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks.

For the second time in as many weeks the senior has run like a man possessed. Prior to Coastal League play, the running back averaged 4.6 yards/carry on 49 rushes. Since, he’s nearly doubled that with a 9.1 yds/carry to lead the Eagles to two straight league victories. He had 23 rushes, 130 yards and 1 TD in a 27-7 win over Parker two weeks ago and scored two more touchdowns in a 51-33 win over Horizon which saw him gain 197 yards on only 14 carries.

Bulla Graft - Bishops

Here at SanDiegoCoastalSports.com, as a staff we never like to vote for a player to win the “Player of the Week” more than once each season to spread the love around. However, the Knights’ senior superstar previously won earlier this season for offense. On Friday, he spoiled University City’s homecoming and kept Bishop’s perfect season in tact. The deadly offensive weapon proved he’s just as lethal on the other side of the ball — leading their defense to a 42-13 win — with 19 tackles (8 solo, 11 ast), 1 TFL and an interception.

JAKE BAILEY

SANTA FE CHRISTIAN

Although his role on this year’s Eagles team has been reduced to keep the Stanford-bound kicker healthy for his future, the senior had a huge impact in their 27-7 win over Francis Parker. He continually kicked the ball out the end zone on kickoffs (even after penalties pushed them back). Add to that, nailing 2 field goals, including a booming 54-yarder that was probably good from 70. Finally, he made the play of the game by converting a fake punt in a crucial spot.

DEFENSE

RYAN LARICCIA

LA JOLLA COUNTRY DAY

Ryan Lariccia

There’s a reason why the Torreys’ defense has only allowed 19 points over the past four games. If you ask the coaching staff it starts in the middle with the sophomore linebacker who they say has stepped his game up and has become a leader. In last week’s 45-0 shutout of San Diego he had 12 tackles (3 solo, 9 asst), one forced fumble, a fumble recovery and registered half a sack. He also scored on a 14-yard touchdown run on his lone carry of the night.

In a game against their coastal rival Coronado, the junior receiver/kicker had his first multi-touchdown game of his career, helping the Vikings to a 38-7 victory. Primarily known as the third favorite target on high-flying aerial attack, he finished with 6 receptions, 123 yards, 2 TD’s and was perfect on all 5 extra point attempts. On the season he now has 20 catches for 325 yards and 3 scores. He’s also 13-for-14 on PAT’s and 2-for-2 on field goals.

DEFENSE

JACK CASE

BISHOP’S

The junior linebacker tied three others on the Knights’ defense for the second most tackles with seven (3 solo, 4 asst) in Friday nights game against Mater Dei Catholic. However, holding a 14-6 lead with under a minute before halftime, he made what could justifiably be the play of the game. Reading the quarterback’s eyes he dropped back into coverage, intercepted a pass in the flat and raced 55 yards for a touchdown. Not only did that give them a two possession lead, but also all of the game’s momentum heading into the locker room and they rode that in the second half to a 38-21 win.

BRAXTON BURMEISTER

LA JOLLA COUNTRY DAY

1411490732_braxton_burmeister_thumbnail

The sophomore is lights and years ahead of where he was this time last year. The experience really showed Friday night in a 27-13 victory over Montgomery when he had a hand in all 4 Torreys’ touchdowns (3 pass, 1 rush). He completed 26-of-40 passes for 298 yards and also rushed 9 times for 76 yards. In the process. He also announced the coming of a duo that will be a force to reckon with for the next two and a half years.

DEFENSE

BRENNAN GORING

LA JOLLA COUNTRY DAY

In what was probably the biggest performance of any Coastal League player this year the sophomore went off. In fact, he really could have won this week’s award for his play on either side of the ball. He was everywhere on defense accounting for 19 tackles (11 solo, 8 asst), but he also hauled in 13 receptions for 164 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Torreys first win over a big school since 2011.

BULLA GRAFT

BISHOP’S

Bulla Graft - Bishops

The senior has been a big reason the Knights are off to a fast 4-0 start as he scored five touchdowns for the second straight week against Coronado in a battle of unbeatens last Friday. He racked up 185 yards on just 11 carries and also had a 14-yard touchdown reception. On defense, he had 7 tackles along with .5 sacks. If that wasn’t enough he also took over the set of KUSI’s PPR during the final five minutes and thoroughly stole the show away from Papa Pig himself.

DEFENSE

CYRUS NOLAN

BISHOP’S


cyrus nolan

The offensive/defensive lineman helped lead a spectacular defensive performance against previously undefeated Coronado. The allowed only 128 yards (53 pass, 75 rush) of total offense against a team that came in averaging well over 400 yards a game. The senior had 4 tackles, 3 tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks and opened a lot of holes for the Bishop’s running backs to average 12 yards per carry in the 42-0 rout.

JOSH GAUDET

HORIZON

Josh Gaudet

The senior quarterback wasted no time leading the Panthers to their first victory of the season posting 34 first quarter points en route to a 48-7 whooping of Palo Verde Valley. He had his hand in all 7 of Horizon’s touchdowns, passing for 377 yards on 17-of-23 attempts and 4 scores. For good measure he also ran 18 times for 55 yards along with another 3 touchdowns.

DEFENSE

CHRISTIAN SOURAPAS

FRANCIS PARKER

Christian Sourapas

The Lancers admittedly let Mater Dei Catholic hang around too long in their 33-13 Friday night win. Luckily, the senior cornerback slammed the door shut after intercepting his second pass of the game and returned it 63 yards for the game’s final score. In total, he had 132 return yards (94 int, 38 KOR) on the night and also made 4 tackles.

GRIFFIN SEAMAN

BISHOP’S

Griffin Seaman

The junior quarterback played the best game of his young career against La Jolla in front one of the rowdiest crowds ever seen at Gene Edwards Stadium. He shut the Vikings’ faithful up early and often as he went 13-of-20 for 217 yards and 5 touchdowns. A pair of collegiate scouts were on hand to watch his counterpoint on the other sideline, but he stole the show and it wasn’t even close.

DEFENSE

DANIEL ANDERSON

BISHOP’S 

Daniel Anderson

The game plan put in place by the Knights’ coaching staff was flawless. Even though they dropped back to play the pass the sophomore defensive lineman blew up La Jolla’s running game when they got into short-yardage situations all night long. He finished with 8 tackles, 4 tackles for a loss, one sack and was a key piece in the 42-7 victory.

The senior quarterback opened his senior season off with a bang. In his second season under center in the up-tempo spread offense the Vikings have installed it took him only a half against La Jolla Country Day to toss 6 touchdowns and rack up 252 yards on 13-of-16 passing.

DAVID TRAGANZA

FRANCIS PARKER

If you put on the film of the Lancers’ 22-20 victory over Radford (HI.) you see the senior linebacker making highlight play-after-play. He piled up 17 tackles (2 TFL), a sack and also picked off one pass for an interception. He was a key part in the come-from-behind victory that gave Parker the win on a last second field goal.

FRANCIS PARKER

NATHANIEL ABERNATHY

The senior wide receiver sparked the Lancers’ offense in the ginormous Coastal League championship tilt Santa Fe Christian with three receptions for 87 yards and two touchdowns. Each catch was worthy of being placed on Parker’s season-ending highlight-reel as he brought in two fade routes and also opened the scoring in the 38-22 victory with an 11-yard TD catch maintaining his balance after taking a vicious hit.

DEFENSE

FRANCIS PARKER

MILAN MARRERO

The Lancers’ defensive captain had a hand in 12 tackles (10 assists, 2 solo) in their big season-ending win over the Eagles, but made the two biggest plays of the night just when it looked like Santa Fe Christian was starting to show some signs of life. The senior picked the perfect time of the season to record his first interception and forced fumble as he sealed the deal for Parker’s defense.
