Few teams in the country had a closer call in their season opener than Vista Murrieta (Calif.) High School, which needed a field goal as time expired to beat Rancho Cucamonga Etiwanda 31-28.

Exactly three months later, few teams in the country were playing as well as the Broncos, who knocked off Corona Centennial 35-28 to capture a CIF-Southern Section Inland Division title. And like the Vista Murrieta team, it would be tough to pick an individual player performing at a higher level at the end of the season than junior linebacker/tailback Su'a Cravens.
