Five Vista Murrieta High School football players were selected to the 2014 All-CIF Southern Section West Valley Division team.

The six Vista Murrieta players include wide receiver Jamie Nunley, quarterback Kyle Williams who won the award for the utility spot, defensive back Brandon Worthy, linebacker Messiah Tyler, and defensive lineman Tevita Mo'unga.

An asset to his team from the tight end position, Nunley (pictured left) not only could block, but was a key target in the Broncos' passing game. He caught 38 passes for 577 yards and 4 touchdowns. The six-foot-five senior caught 5 passes for 69 yards and a touchdown in the upset victory over Tesoro High School in the second round of the playoffs.

Starting the season as a wide receiver, Williams stepped into the quarterback role, a position he had never played before, and led his team to the CIF championship game. He completed 82 passes in 152 attempts, for 1,402 yards passing, and 10 touchdown passes. Williams was also a Vista Murrieta's top rusher, running the ball 184 times for 1,351 yards and 18 touchdowns. From the receiver role, he caught 4 passes for 37 yards. He also was the Broncos' punt and kick returner. He returned 7 punts for 129 yards and 3 kicks for 93 yards. Capping off his season, Williams also won the Southwestern League's award for Most Outstanding Player of the Year.

Leading the Broncos' secondary, Worthy was a sparkplug for the team. He was second on his team for tackles with 98. He also had 2 sacks and 4 interceptions, caused 4 fumbles, and recovered 2. Worthy was also a key player on special teams. He blocked 3 punts, a point-after-attempt, and a field goal. Against St. Augustine High School, Worthy blocked a punt that ricocheted into the back of the end zone for a safety, which was the difference to giving Vista Murrieta the win.

From the linebacker position, Messiah Tyler racked up 90 tackles and 2 sacks during the season. In the CIF championship game against Mission Viejo, he had a total of 13 tackles to keep his team in the game.

Anchoring the defensive line, Mo'unga tallied 64 tackles, 2 sacks, and caused 1 fumble. Because of his stellar play, he won the Defensive Most Valuable Player of the Year Award for the Southwestern League. Against St. Augustine High School, he had a total of 9 tackles to contribute to his team's victory.
