In many ways, last week was the week of the running back, with impressive performances from the position on nearly every team. But it was Jeremy Jetton’s all-around performance that earned him the week’s honor.

Jetton’s 67 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries against Lincoln may look commonplace, but his carries were limited due to the presence of the Eagles’ other talented rushers in Peter Tran and Galen Hall.

Still, Jetton almost single-handedly put the game out of Lincoln’s reach with a fourth-quarter interception that led to a touchdown and a 55-yard punt return for a touchdown with just over a minute to go.

Jetton has had a punt or kick return for a touchdown in all four of Washington’s games.

Honorable Mention: Greg Warren, senior running back, Balboa football

Warren ran for 200 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries in the Bucs’ 55-8 rout of Marshall on Saturday.

It’s the second consecutive standout performance for Warren and Balboa head coach Alvaro Carvajal said they will continue to make it a priority to get him the ball.

Honorable Mention: Quincy Nelson, senior running back, Galileo football

Nelson is another hard-luck honorable mention candidate that probably would have received top honors in any other week.

He ran for 231 yards and four touchdowns on 19 carries in the Lions’ 49-6 drubbing of Burton on Saturday.

Honorable Mention: Valentino Miles, junior running back, Sacred Heart Cathedral football

In Sacred Heart Cathedral’s gut-wrenching loss to Mitty on Friday, Miles had 144 yards and three touchdowns on a season-high 27 carries, including a 26-yard touchdown run to cut the Mitty lead to 33-26 with 9:55 remaining in the fourth quarter.

“He was outstanding once again,” said Sacred Heart Cathedral head coach John Lee. “He plays with emotion and when he gets his motor going, he really get it going. I can’t say enough about him.”

Honorable Mention: Holland Reynolds, junior, University girls cross country

After winning the Westmoor Invitational on Sept. 25, Reynolds again had a solid performance on Tuesday in the first Bay Counties League West meet at Golden Gate Park.

Reynolds finished second overall, only behind last season’s CIF-North Coast Section Division V champion Lucy McCullough from Marin Academy.

Honorable Mention: LaBoyd Ricard, junior quarterback, Stuart Hall football

Ricard was a force in Stuart Hall’s first-half surge against Pinewood on Saturday at Treasure Island.

Ricard ran for 247 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries, along with two passing touchdowns.
