Deeks, Visarraga playing at an elite level

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 — Jordan Visarraga, Willamette, RB

After three weeks of action, Visarraga is the state’s leading rusher with 672 yards. He posted 189 yards with three TDs and a pair of picks in a Week 2 win then added 225 yards and six scores to lead the Wolverines over Eagle Point, 52-22, last weekend. The senior exploded for 152 yards and four scores in the second half of the Eagle Point contest.

DOWN — Jacob Hollister, Mountain View, QB

Sherwood’s defense has been known to make things hard on the state’s most accomplished passers. After Friday night, Hollister can attest to that. The senior signal-caller struggled to find his groove, going 4-of-11 for 40 yards in a 41-18 loss to the defending 5A champs. Now don’t trip, Hollister has a pair of offers in hand and interest from programs all over the west coast, so chalk this performance up to an off day and great Sherwood defense. We fully expect his stock to rise over the coming weeks.

UP — Lochlin Deeks, West Salem, DL

Playing against many of his former West Linn teammates on Friday night, Deeks headlined a swarming West Salem defense that held its ground on three red zone trips to capture a 24-3 win. Deeks made life miserable for West Linn’s O-Line, helping hold the Lions under 300 yards of total offense. Buoyed by the play of its defense, West Salem has won consecutive contests after a blowout loss in Week 1.
