Northern California high school football: Top stars, best performances in Week 4 of 2021 season

Four weeks of the 2020-21 California high school football season have now come and gone, and the top stars have been more dominant with every passing week.

Quite a few teams in our statewide top-25 rankings registered blowout wins, and some were in part due to standout individual performances. QB Dominique Lampkin and SB Hassan Mahasin dominated in No. 6 San Mateo Serra’s 49-7 rout of Saint Francis, No. 10 Folsom QB Tyler Tremain threw for five touchdowns in a 40-7 win over Whitney, and No. 17 Monterey Trail beat Cosumnes Oaks in lopsided fashion thanks to huge nights from DB Jamauri Jackson, RB/DB Chris Lands, and RB Otha Williams.

Here’s a quick look at some of the top stars and individual performances from the fourth week of games.
