Check out which athletes lead the area through five weeks.

All statistics reported to MaxPreps as of Tuesday.

PASSING

We saw little change among our Pikes Peak region quarterback rankings as our top two athletes were forced to sit out due to COVID-19 related cancelations. Brayden Dorman and Luke McAllister still sit among the top QBs in the state as the only two athletes to be ranked in the top 10 in passing yards with one fewer game than the rest of the field. After throwing for 142 yards and three touchdowns against Pueblo South, Canon City senior Lucas Walcott joins the Pikes Peak rankings with 537 total yards.
