JERRY RICE JR. MENLO SCHOOL -- FOOTBALL
Coming into the season, everyone knew that Rice Jr. was one of the top wide receivers in the area, but what no one could have guessed is that he's a pretty good quarterback as well. Pressed into service under center on Oct. 10 (the Menlo starting QB was injured), the senior completed all nine of his pass attempts for 108 yards and ran for 178 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 29-26 win over Terra Nova.

EMILY RICHARD CARLMONT -- GIRLS' BASKETBALL
When Carlmont needs a big basket, they make sure the ball is in Richard's hands. The 5-foot-7 senior is one of the best in the country, and she's rated the state's No. 3 point guard in the ESPNU HoopGurlz 100. Richard is capable of creating an open shot for her teammates as well as putting it in the basket herself, either by driving or unfurling a picture-perfect 3-point shot.

CARLEE PAYNE FOOTHILL -- GIRLS' SOCCER
Payne was integral to Foothill's run to the NCS title game last season. Her goal just 19 seconds into the semifinal match stood up as the only tally in a 1-0 victory over top-seeded Castro Valley, and the Falcons will be counting on more clutch production from Payne this season. The senior is one of several returning starters for Foothill, and with Payne leading the way, the team is looking to battle back to the championship game and win it all.
