Alejado joins a class of elites and he is right here in our hometown!

Micah Alejado, a quarterback from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been named the MaxPreps National Junior Player of the Year, an honor that recognizes the top high school football player in the country. Alejado's outstanding performance on the field during the 2022 season led his team to a 14-1 record, a Class 5A state championship, and a spot at number four in the final MaxPreps Top 25. Standing at 5 feet 10 inches and weighing 170 pounds, Alejado threw for a total of 3,575 yards, had 54 touchdown passes, and only two interceptions while completing 75.8% of his attempts. He also contributed to the team's success by running the ball, with 41 carries for 353 yards and an additional three touchdowns. The Bishop Gorman team, led by Alejado, was dominant throughout the season, with all 14 wins coming by at least 35 points. In their final game of the season, a 49-14 win over Chaminade-Madonna High School in Hollywood, Florida, Alejado completed 12 of 16 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown. The game was all but over by halftime, a common occurrence in most of Alejado's games during his junior season, as he often sat out the second halves due to the lopsided scores. Alejado's impressive statistics and leadership on the field have earned him the recognition as one of the top high school football players in the country. He joins a prestigious group of players including Deshaun Watson, Trevor Lawrence, Bryce Young, Emeka Egbuka and Travis Hunter who have received this honor in the past. With his talent and drive, it's clear that Alejado has a bright future ahead of him in the world of football.
