Prep football: Chronicle's 2014 regional players of the year - SFGate

Jerrel Stancil, Mission: The 6-foot-1, 175-pound quarterback for the San Francisco Section champion Bears was the Academic Athletic Association Player of the Year after leading his team to nine straight wins to close the season. On a squad filled with playmakers, Stancil was the most prolific, especially in Mission’s biggest game, a 36-12, section-clinching win over Lincoln in the 91st Turkey Day Game. Stancil, who accounted for more than 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns this season, completed 17 of 23 passes for 318 yards and four touchdowns. Anthony Gordon, Terra Nova-Pacifica: The 6-3, 180-pound senior had the greatest statistical season for a quarterback in Central Coast Section history, throwing for section records of 4,899 yards (sixth best in the nation) and 49 touchdowns. His biggest outing came in a 56-35 win over Menlo School-Atherton when he completed 24 of 30 for 513 yards and six touchdowns. He led Terra Nova (7-6) to the CCS Division IV championship by throwing for 1,071 yards and 14 touchdowns in three playoff games. Terra Nova’s Tim Adams— who coached Tom Brady at Serra-San Mateo — called Gordon the best high school quarterback he has seen. He finished second in the state with 2,709 yards on 249 carries (10. 9 average) with 32 touchdowns, leading the Eagles to a Northern California Division II title. Source:
