Mark Tennis/ESPNHSConcord's Olito Thompson set NorCal record for rushing yards in 2011.Receiver Drew Wolitarsky, quarterbacks Jared Goff and Conner Manning and running back Olito Thompson are among the most prolific returning stat stars on 88-player preseason watch list.
Entering his senior season at Canyon of Canyon Country, receiver Drew Wolitarsky has already amassed 192 catches for 3,869 yards and 39 touchdowns.
That has helped him earn a selection to this year’s preseason all-state team (announced this week) and also gets him within reach of two Cal-Hi Sports state records.
