Introducing The Bee’s Player of the Week nominees for Week 4:

RB/LB Daniel Trujillo, Lindsay: The senior was all over the field. He had 30 carries for 263 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, he had eight tackles and five tackles for a loss in the Cardinals’ 41-20 victory over Fowler. The 263 yards is a career-high according to Central Section historian Bob Barnett.

DB Jalen O’Neal, Bullard: The younger brother of former Knight/Fresno State RB Dejonte O’Neal played just the first half and had four tackles and three for a loss. He also picked up 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and recovery, and two pass breakups as the Knights rolled to a 63-10 win over Pitman-Turlock.

RB Cade Uehling, Buchanan: The junior did damage on the ground and as a receiver. He had a 73-yard run and a 75-yard touchdown reception, helping the Bears score 19 unanswered points in a 19-17 victory over Liberty-Bakersfield. He’s No. 3 on the Buchanan depth chart behind Georgia recruit Kendall Milton and Caden Rodgers.

LB Cade Foraker, Clovis North: His strip and fumble recovery with 47 seconds remaining sealed the Broncos’ 41-40 victory over Edison.

RB/LB Jordan Hornbeak, San Joaquin Memorial: The junior ran for a 43-yard touchdown, helping the Panthers to a 28-21 victory over Garces in the Holy Bowl. Hornbeak finished with 16 carries for 127 yards and a touchdown, and also had six tackles.
