• Keaton Stensrud, Benilde-St. Margaret’s, QB: Excellent athlete who is a dual threat to run or pass. He completed 100 of 172 passes for 1,342 yards and six touchdowns in 2012. He also rushed for 1,131 yards and 17 TDs.

• Chris Williams, DeLaSalle, RB: Runs strong inside, with incredible balance, quick feet and the ability to turn a mundane play into something highlight-worthy. Rushed for 1,427 yards and 22 TDs in 2012.

• Kolby Seiffert, Chaska, WR/DB: One of those players who always seems to be in the middle of the action. Scored a touchdown rushing and a touchdown on a fumble return in Friday’s wild season-opening victory over Hopkins.

• Don’t overlook: Khavon Hawkins, Cooper, WR; Chazz Johnson, Holy Family, RB; Nathan Johnson, Chanhassen, RB; Shaheed Hickman, Hopkins, RB; Marcus Berg, Blake, RB.

Mark the calendar

Every Friday night has worthwhile matchups, but high school football fans should attend at least one of these games.

• Sept. 6: Chaska at Chanhassen, 7 p.m. There is a buzz in the southwest metro about this one. Both teams can put up points, but does Chaska have enough defense?

• Sept. 20: Washburn at St. Paul Central, 7 p.m. See what it is about Washburn running back Jeff Jones that has recruiters all lathered up. Central likely will present his toughest test.

• Sept. 27: Hutchinson at Holy Family, 7 p.m. Last year Hutchinson defeated Holy Family twice by a combined scored of 127-14, including a 67-7 drubbing in the Prep Bowl. Not saying Holy Family will win, but the Fire has an extra spark.

• Sept. 28: Benilde-St. Margaret’s at DeLaSalle, 2 p.m. You can’t beat the setting: an afternoon game on Minneapolis’ historic Nicollet Island.

• Oct. 11: Wayzata at Eden Prairie. If you pick one game to represent Minnesota football on a national stage, this would be it. The state’s two biggest schools knock heads in a Class 6A state tournament preview.
