The Ultimate High School Football Stats Team

Posted by Jacob Plunkett on 8/4/16 10:43 AM

Eye-popping stats don't always equal wins, but they ARE fun to look at.

High school fantasy football doesn't exist - for obvious reasons - but IF it did, this would be an absolutely stacked team to take into the 2016 season:


QB: Alex Huston, JR, Glendale High School (Springfield, MO)

2015 Stats:

  • 5,608 passing yards
  • 510 Y/G
  • 69 passing touchdowns

As a sophomore, Huston put up an entire high school career’s worth of numbers. His FEWEST passing yards in a single game was 407, while his most was 625. Not once, but TWICE did he manage to throw for 9 touchdowns and 0 interceptions in a single game.


QB: Tim Tawa, SR, West Linn (West Linn, OR)


2015 Stats:

  • 4,420 passing yards
  • 316 Y/G
  • 50 passing touchdowns

Tawa was about as efficient as possible last season. He sported a .683 completion percentage, and threw for 50 TDs to only 3 interceptions. The rising senior also added 4 rushing touchdowns.


RB: Jared Smith, SR, Pewamo-Westphalia High School (Pewamo, MI)

2015 Stats:

  • 3,243 rushing yards
  • 232 Y/G
  • 53 rushing touchdowns

If you’re looking for a workhorse, you’ve got one in Jared Smith. Last year, as a junior, he carried the ball an incredible 314 times and STILL averaged over 10 yards per carry. Oh, and he never fumbled.


RB: Jullen Ison, SR, Moreau Catholic High School (Hayward, CA)

2015 Stats:

  • 3,044 rushing yards
  • 234 Y/G
  • 43 rushing touchdowns

Last season, as a junior, Ison eclipsed the 200-yard mark NINE times, including a 411 yard, 4 TD performance in the playoffs.


WR: Sam Crawford, SR, Rockwall High School (Rockwall, TX)


2015 Stats:

  • 1,459 receiving yards
  • 104 Y/G
  • 15 receiving touchdowns

Crawford has all the big play ability you could ask for in a returning senior wide receiver. He scored 15 receiving TDs and added 3 more on the ground to make him one of the biggest threats in the country going into 2016.


WR: Osiris St. Brown, SR, Mater Dei High School (Santa Ana, CA)


2015 Stats:

  • 884 receiving yards
  • 88 Y/G
  • 12 receiving TDs

With a gaudy 20.6 yards per catch, Osiris shows a ton of promise going into his senior season. Having to learn a new offense (transferred from Servite) likely stunted his production a bit, but he still managed to put up huge numbers, and you can expect to see a lot more plays like this in 2016:


WR: Nico Collins, SR, Clay-Chalkville High School (Pinson, AL)


2015 Stats:

  • 1,103 receiving yards
  • 69 Y/G
  • 16 receiving touchdowns

Our wide receivers were chosen largely off potential, and Nico Collins has plenty of that. As a junior, the 6’5” wideout caught 60 passes, 16 of which were in the endzone. He’s got an ideal frame, so expect even more redzone targets for Collins as a senior.


K: Brenton King, Mill Creek High School (Hoschton, GA)

2015 Stats:

  • 19/24 FG
  • 60/61 PAT
  • 50 yard FG long

As a junior, King was about as reliable as high school kickers come, making roughly 80% of his field goals (including a long of 50) and all but one of his point after attempts. He also kicked off 71 times, 51 of which resulted in touchbacks.


Defense: Katy High School (Katy, TX)

2015 Stats:

  • 6.9 Points Allowed per Game
  • 19 Fumble Recoveries
  • 17 Interceptions
  • 4 Defensive Touchdowns
  • 2 Safeties

In what many consider to be the most competitive high school football league in the country, Katy went 16-0 while allowing 62 points ALL SEASON. They shutout 10 different opponents, including 3 in the state playoffs.
