It's time for the All-State Stock Watch, as we look at All-State football players who saw their potential value rise or fall over the past week. A player could have performed well in a game, gotten a big-time scholarship offer, broken his leg or just had an off game.
UP — Oshay Dunmore, Newport, QB/DB
Newport trailed Astoria 14-7 at the half of Friday night’s game before Dunmore took over. The Oregon recruit led the offense to 29 unanswered points as the Cubs claimed a 43-20 road win. Dunmore hooked up with receiver Drew Dinwoodie for a long TD then added a pair of scoring runs on the ground. He finished the contest with 338 offensive yards and five total touchdowns.
DOWN — Paris Penn, Grant, QB
Before the season, Grant coach Diallo Lewis stressed his team’s need to execute better down the stretch and limit turnovers. That wasn’t the case in Week 2 as the Generals turned the ball over six times in a 49-24 loss to Tigard. Penn struggled against the Tigers’ defense, throwing three picks and losing a fumble during the loss. He has a chance to right the ship this weekend when Grant faces defending 6A champ Aloha.
UP — Thomas Tyner, Aloha, RB
Tyner was a beast on the ground in the Warriors’ 16-14 win over Tualatin Friday night. The junior RB rushed for 295 yards, highlighted by a scintillating 63-yard burst that got the Aloha offense rolling. Tyner produced a remarkable second half, tallying 197 yards after the half. He posted a 8.2 YPC average to keep Aloha undefeated. Tyner has racked up 490 yards and three TDs in two contests.
