High school teammates who went on to star in separate sports
High school teammates who go on to star in the same sport are plentiful at the professional level, with Alex Smith and Reggie Bush of Helix (Calif.), Eddie Murray and Ozzie Smith of Locke (Los Angeles) and Eddie Johnson and Mark Aguirre of Westinghouse (Chicago) among the more famous duos across the NFL, MLB and NBA.

However there are also a number of high school teammates who take different paths to stardom. MaxPreps presents a list of 25 sets of teammates who played together at the prep level before making their mark in other pro sports.

High school football: After quarterbacking Texas team in the fall, Jayce Knapp returns home to Oregon and plays another season in the spring - HIGHSCORE
High school football: After quarterbacking Texas team in the fall, Jayce Knapp returns home to Oregon and plays another season in the spring
We've heard of many high school athletes playing two sports in one season during the pandemic. Jayce Knapp is the first we've heard of playing one sport in two different seasons during the same school year — in two different states.

In fact, the reason Knapp, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound senior quarterback, was able to manage this is because his family lived in two different states with different approaches to handling COVID-19.

Knapp played two varsity seasons for Wilsonville (Ore.), the second as a starter in 2019, when he threw for 1,676 yards, 20 touchdowns and just four interceptions for an 8-3 Wildcats team.

The following year, his dad's business led a family move to Texas, where Knapp played in five games at Del Valle. Again, Knapp put up some good numbers, throwing for more than 1,000 yards and 17 touchdowns (four interceptions). He piled up 336 yards and three touchdowns in the final games of the season, a 39-34 loss to Austin.

Jayce Knapp during his 336-yard passing performance for Del Valle in the fall against Austin.
Texas was one of 35 states to play a traditional fall season, though it did delay its top two divisions (6A and 5A) six weeks. Del Valle is an unincorporated part of Travis County, near Austin.

The family moved back to Wilsonville in the winter and because Oregon changed football to the spring, Knapp was able to strap on the pads and helmet one more time. 

He said he was content to just play the role as backup in the abbreviated six-week season, but an injury to starter Chase Hix thrust Knapp back to starring for his hometown school, leading the Wildcats to a 6-0 record.

Knapp threw just four passes in the first two games but by Week 5 he was at his best, completing 30 of 39 attempts for 395 yards and five touchdowns in a 37-14 win over Canby. He finished 70 of 103 for 1,001 yards and 10 touchdowns in the shortened season.

He told Jerry Ulmer of OSAAtoday.com that it was "heartbreaking" not being able to play for a state championship after most of the 19 seniors on Wilsonville were on a 5A quarterfinal team in 2018 as sophomores.

"I know we're a state championship-caliber team," he said. "I think we'd definitely make a run all the way to the state championship, and we'd have a good chance of winning it."

Knapp told Ulmer playing in Texas was a unique and expansive experience.  

"The speed down there is insane," he said. "The competition down there was crazy. It gave me the confidence to come here and play well. I lived, ate and breathed football for four months. But once it was over, I was like, 'This is my home.' I just couldn't live there anymore. I had to come back. ... Texas taught me a lot."
Jayce Knapp played in five games in Texas during the fall before returning home to play six games for his hometown Wilsonville squad in Oregon.

High school football: Mater Dei, St. John Bosco head into showdown atop HIGHSCORE Top 25 California rankings - HIGHSCORE
High school football: Mater Dei, St. John Bosco head into showdown atop MaxPreps Top 25 California rankings
Like a Thanksgiving table, it's all arranged, neat and pretty, with all the fixings. Top-ranked Mater Dei and No. 2 St. John Bosco prevailed handily last week in tuneups and now meet Saturday for the unofficial 2021 spring California high school football championship.

The No. 1 Monarchs rolled a very good Santa Margarita team 49-13 on Friday behind 291 yards passing and four touchdowns from freshman quarterback Elijah Brown and two rushing scores by Raleek Brown. Elijah Brown fired TD passes to four different receivers.

Bosco led 48-0 at halftime en route to a 55-0 victory over Orange Lutheran. According to the Press-Telegram, sophomore quarterback Pierce Clarkson threw three touchdown passes on his first three attempts and the Braves scored six touchdowns on their first 22 plays while sharpening up for the Monarchs.

Bosco has outscored five opponents 266-91, while the Monarchs have a 174-40 margin over their four foes. The two national powers have split their last 10 meetings, including their last two to decide the Southern Section Division I title. The combined scores of those two games: St. John Bosco 52, Mater Dei 51.

CALIFORNIA SPRING COMPUTER RANKINGS: Compare to human rankings below

The biggest movers in the rankings this week were No. 16 Serra (Gardena) and No. 21 Chaminade (West Hills).

Serra won its fourth straight, 38-17 over Bishop Amat, after a season-opening overtime loss to Long Beach Poly. Among those wins was a victory over Chaminade, which entered the rankings after beating previous No. 8 Alemany 34-27. Serra jumped seven spots this week.

Chaminade started 0-2 but has won three straight, getting a huge boost from starting quarterback Jaylen Henderson, who had planned to sit out the season. He returned in an overtime loss to Serra, but has since led his team to three straight wins.

In the win over Alemany, Henderson completed 15-of-20 for 244 yards and four touchdowns and rushed 11 times for 123 yards and another score. The highly-ranked dual threat has signed to Fresno State.

Another notable team performance last week was No. 8 Cathedral Catholic (San Diego), which moved up one spot after a 41-0 win over previous No. 23 Lincoln (San Diego). Lincoln had outscored its three previous opponents, 152-0. In Cathedral Catholic's win, Lucky Sutton rushed for 235 yards and three touchdowns and the defense allowed just 65 total yards and three first downs.
