STAFF WRITER

The Register's defensive player of the week for football for Week 1:

Jedediah Smith

Mater Dei

The senior inside linebacker racked up 16 total tackles, including 12 unassisted, and recorded a sack, pass breakup and blocked punt in a 35-14 victory against then-No. 5 Tesoro. Smith (5-9, 179) was part of a defense that held Tesoro to 22 yards rushing. “Pound for pound, he is the strongest and toughest kid on the team,” Mater Dei coach Bruce Rollinson said of Smith.

Smith also serves a team captain, is a standout wrestler and carries a 4.0 grade-point average.
