The TD reception gives him 10 straight games, dating to last season, where he caught at least one touchdown pass -- the longest such streak in the nation . . . Menlo School grad Jerry Rice Jr. made his debut with UNLV on Saturday, catching one pass for six yards during a 58-13 loss to Arizona. Rice originally attended UCLA before transferring . . . Palo Alto High grad Grant Raffel was named male Athlete of the Week at Williams College. Raffel, a freshman, led the men's golf team in his collegiate debut at the Bowdoin Invitational last weekend. On Day 1, he shot an impressive 76, the second-best score for the Ephs. The next day, he battled tough conditions to pull out an 80, leading to a two-day total of 156, a team best. His score of 156 earned him seventh place at the Invitational, just eight shots out of first place. "As a first-year, coming in to his first collegiate tournament, he had a great performance and really led the team," said Williams head coach Josh Hillman. "He finished seventh overall, which is a nice feather in his cap."
