STEVE TATE, Skyline: It took the senior quarterback just one game to prove he's the right man to operate Skyline's complex wishbone-type offense.
The quick, 6-foot-1, 180-pounder rushed for 162 yards and the game-winning touchdown in Friday's 24-21 victory over Kahuka, Hawaii.
With 18 seconds left and his team trailing 21-17, he plunged over the goal line for the winning score.
"He's got good football instincts. He's one of our captains, and he has great leadership. He's willing to put forth the effort to get better," Skyline coach Roger DuPaix said. "The team really rallies behind him."
CHARLSIE HARRIS, Taylorsville: This junior got the Region 2 contenders off on the right foot last week by scoring four goals in the Warriors' 5-0 win over Riverton.
"She's good at taking people on one-on-one," said Taylorsville coach Lance Hansen. "She also gets a number of assists. She's quite a selfless player. She's not afraid to shoot, but she'll pass as well."
As a sophomore last year, "Chuck," as her teammates call her, scored 14 goals to lead Taylorsville to a second-place finish in Region 2.
Harris plays for the Firebirds club team and is also a member of the 1984 Olympic Developmental Team.
