Every week, The Columbian’s 360 Preps team compiles the top highlights from around Clark County and puts you, the reader, up to the test of choosing the top play.
Week 5 saw great games and, as always, terrific individual plays.
Voting closes Wednesday evening, with the winner announced Thursday. In the future: Please send us any and all video highlights we may not have captured or received to email@example.com.
Here are the nominees:
King’s Way’s Bryson Metz out-leaps two defenders for TD
He’s a freshman and he stands at 5-foot-6, but that didn’t stop King’s Way’s Bryson Metz from jumping higher than the two defensive backs hovering over him as he made good on a 26-yard pass from Kemper Shrock.
Woodland’s Tyler Flanagan unleashes 65-yard touchdown run
Just because a defense knows what’s coming, doesn’t mean they’ll be able to stop it. Tyler Flanagan, Woodland’s quarterback who leads Clark County in rushing, proved that when he took off for a long touchdown run to go ahead of Hockinson early. The Hawks, however, would go onto prevail.
Union’s Jojo Siofele breaks free for a long TD down left sideline
The dynamic back used a couple key screens — one from teammate Alishawuan Taylor, another from two Puyallup players running into each other — and a lot of breakaway speed on his way to a 74-yard touchdown pass.
Stevenson’s Isaac Hoidal makes one-handed snag
O’Dell Beckham would approve. The Bulldogs’ top receiver, making yet another appearance in the top plays of the week, snagged a pass with one outstretched hand in Stevenson’s win over Seton Catholic.
Camas’ Tyler Forner takes kick return 91 yards for TD
When the Papermakers were up big, Forner made the lead even larger. He gathered a kickoff at the nine yard line and took the ball 91 yards for a touchdown in Camas’ 65-3 win over Heritage.
Evergreen’s Luke Allen scores 61-yard TD
Allen’s route found him open behind a pair of defensive backs and Plainsmen QB Rayn Preston found him with a deep ball in stride as the receiver went the distance in a shutout win over Fort Vancouver.
Hockinson’s Makaio Juarez makes one-handed interception
He bobbled, then with his left hand, held on. Hockinson’s DB came down with the acrobatic interception in single coverage during the Hawks league win over Woodland.
Isaiah Jones’s momentous 55-yard TD in Union’s comeback
In the moment, Union needed a big play if it wanted to complete a come-from-behind effort against No. 3 Puyallup. Jones delivered. His 55-yard touchdown run with four minutes left fueled a 21-point swing that aided a comeback win.
