Grayson McCall, the junior QB for Porter Ridge, played one of his best high school games in defeat playing primarily with one hand.

Wearing a full support brace extending from his wrist to forearm of his non-throwing hand, McCall rushed for 184 yards and four touchdowns while throwing for 100 yards and one TD.

Sun Valley senior Kendall Anderson led all receivers with 11 catches for 146 yards.
