Jake Maulhardt, a senior at Camarillo High School, leaps above his teammates to make a catch during a recent practice. Maulhardt set a state single-game record with 28 receptions against Canyon and could challenge the single-season mark for catches (122), which was set by Thousand Oaks High's Richard Mullaney last season. © Anthony Plascencia/VC Star

The game after “the game,” Jake Maulhardt quickly discovered just how much things had changed.When the Camarillo High football team played host to Ventura on Sept. 30, Maulhardt earned special attention virtually every time he lined up at wide receiver.

“The entire defense would stand up and point at me before the ball was snapped,” Maulhardt said. “I thought, ‘Well, that’s a little different.’ ”

Not so surprising, though. Defenses tend to keep close tabs on a wide receiver gifted enough to set a California state record for receptions in a game.
