Video/St. Mary’s junior RB Dusty Frampton & Brookside Christian sophomore WR/DB Jalen Williams earn All-American

Big Tip of The Hat to St. Mary’s High junior RB Dusty Frampton and Brookside Christian sophomore WR/DB Jamal Williams, both earning spots on MaxPreps’ Underclass All-American Teams today. Both of their Stockton schools won Sac-Joaquin Section titles and advanced to the postseason Bowl series.

Here’s what MaxPreps had to say about Frampton, who was selected as an all-purpose player on the second-team defense for the Junior All-American Team:

RB — Dusty Frampton, 5-11, 214, St. Mary’s (Stockton, Calif.)
Frampton piled up 2,345 rushing yards and 44 total TDs for the state runner-up Rams.

In addition to what MaxPreps had to say, Frampton faces a challenge next year: The Rams graduate much of their passing game (QB Jake Dunniway, WRs Keaton Hampton and Dewey Cotton) and offensive line, so defenses will be focused on the returning All-American. He led the Rams to the Division 1-AA State Bowl.

The 5-foot-11, 215-pounder was on the verge of completing a breathtaking 3-game playoff run before an injury sidelined him in the waning moments of the State Bowl. His Rams were headed to a State Bowl win before the injury, and he 33 carries for 169 yards and a TD in the Bowl before he departed.

In the previous week’s NorCal Bowl win over 11-1 Freedom (whose only loss had been to De La Salle), Frampton had 37 carries for 359 yards and 5 TDs. A week earlier,  the Rams had ended Folsom’s four-year reign as king of the Section with Frampton running 30 times for 283 yards and 3 TDs in a 56-25 rout in the Section final.

Here’s what MaxPreps had to say about Williams, who was selected as an all-purpose player on the second-team defense for the Sophomore All-American Team:

AP — Jalen Williams, 6-4, 190, Brookside Christian (Stockton, Calif.)
The three-sport standout notched 218 tackles and 32 tackles for loss. He also did damage at wideout with 606 receiving yards and seven TDs.

In addition to what MaxPreps had to say, Williams is the younger brother of senior WR Justin Williams. Jalen Williams averaged 15 yards per catch and caught 7 TDs for the Knights.

He returns next year with QB Quincy Glaspar and RB Reuben Lee, who will be coming back for their junior and senior years, respectively. While the Knights lose their top receiver (Justin Williams), Jalen was their #2 receiver and every other player who caught a pass in 2016 will be returning next fall.
