Though the season is over for some, there are still plenty of guys going strong. 

And many showed out on Friday, in the final week of the regular season.

So, for the final Player of the Week for the regular season, we have six guys on the board, five of which are still playing.

Cash Transeth, Santa Ynez's junior running back, should still be playing after his Pirates finished out 8-2 and were left out of the postseason once again.

Transeth doesn't have huge numbers this week, but his consistent rushing was critical as the Pirates struggled offensively against St. Joseph last week. Transeth scored both of the Pirates' touchdowns in the 20-14 loss at St. Joseph. As QB Dustin Gregg struggled with interceptions, Transeth providing a calming, reliable presence in the Santa Ynez backfield. 

He finished with 15 carries for 77 yards and 2 TDs. 

Shemar Savage, Lompoc's senior WR-DB, does have eye-popping stats and his team is still playing. Savage had 151 yards receiving and a TD while also picking off a pass on defense. 

Justin Wong, a St. Joseph  senior, had one of the best games of his career Friday against the Pirates. Wong caught two TDs and picked off a pass on defense. 

Blake Truhitte did what he always seems to do in powering the Santa Maria offense. And the senior QB did it with so much on the line. Truhitte helped the Saints rally past Nipomo for a 41-25 win after being down 19-0. That victory gave the Saints their first league championship since 1988 and first playoff berth since 2003. 

Brayden Groshart had the breakout game of his sophomore season. Nipomo's QB threw for four touchdowns and 272 yards in the loss to Santa Maria.

Damien Robles has been steadily racking up rushing yards for the Righetti Warriors this year after they struggled tremendously on offense all last season. Robles ripped off an 80-yard TD run and had 152 total rushing yards in a dominant win over Pioneer Valley that catapulted the Warriors into the playoffs.
