Week Three was the week of the running QB. 

Dominick Martinez, Emilio Corona and Tyler Kaschewski are all three QBs who had more success running the ball last week than passing.

Martinez had over 200 rushing yards as Santa Maria dominated Bakersfield Golden Valley. Santa Maria had more than 450 rushing yards as a team. Martinez scored twice.

Corona topped 230 passing yards and 117 rushing yards against Templeton, whose quarterback, Tyler Kaschewski, had another dynamic performance for the second straight week with 103 passing yards and 139 rushing yards.

On the 8-man level, Tyler McCoy threw four TDs and rushed for three more. He also had 15 tackles on defense.
