No. 1-ranked Santa Ana Mater Dei was pretty good without its No. 1 receiver, Amon-ra St. Brown, who has been recovering from a finger injury.

So can you imagine how good the Monarchs must be with him on the field? Fans at Mission Viejo High got the chance to see on Saturday night

On Mater Dei's first two offensive plays, St. Brown caught a six-yard pass, then a 25-yard touchdown pass. He finished with nine receptions for 147 yards and three touchdowns in one half of action as the Monarchs rolled to their fourth consecutive victory, a 62-14 triumph over New Jersey Bergen Catholic.

Yes, a trip to the hot dog restaurant on La Brea Avenue is coming soon for the Poland native.
