Sorry about the very late recruit roundup this week. Some of the kids are probably already playing this week's games. Hopefully it won’t take as long next week. We have a few new commits to watch this week with the addition of A.J. Derby, Stephane N’goumou, B.J. Lowery, and De’Andre Johnson (who is actually hurt…so not much to report on him).
Marcus Coker: DeMatha 49 – Gonzaga 24
Coker racked up 186 yards on 18 carries and scored 3 touchdowns as Dematha routed Gonzaga.
Jim Poggi & Anthony Ferguson: Gilman 28 - Malvern 14
I didn't find anything on this game.
Christian Kirksey & Don Shumpert: Hazelwood East 38 – Riverview Gardens 24
Hazelwood East jumped out to a 19-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back in a victory over Riverview Gardens. Shumpert had his best game of the season catching 5 passes for 111 yards and 2 touchdowns including a 80-yard TD catch. He also recorded 6 tackles. Kirksey also had a nice game on defense. He had an interception that he returned for 42 yards, 1 sack, and 10 total tackles.
Andrew Donnal: Anthony Wayne 44 – Bowling Green 6
Anthony Wayne came out on fire and score 37 first half points, before cruising to a 44 to 6 victory.
Austin Vier: Ballard 59 – Nevada 2
Ballard cruised to its sixth straight victory beating Nevada 49 to 2. Vier completed just 4 passes on 8 attempts, but of those 4 completions 3 were touchdowns and he averaged over 25 yards per completion. Vier also ran the ball twice for 4 yards.
Mike Hardy: Kimberly 47 – Neenah 7
Kimberly racked up 475 yards in a route over Neenah. The rushing game was stellar with 331 yards, and the passing attack was near perfect, as the Papermaker’s quarterback went 8 of 9 for 144 yards. Here’s a pic of Hardy and his teammates stopping the Neenah running back on a 3rd and short.
James Morris: Solon 35 – Center Point Urbana 0
No surprises here…Solon moved to 6-0 and Morris had another big game. Morris ran for 125 yards on 20 carries and had 1 touchdown. He also had a part is limiting the CPU offense to just 4 first downs and 43 total yards.
Matt Hoch: Harlan 41 - Glenwood 0
Harlan had a nice homecoming and continued its domination by routing Glenwood. Hoch, at fullback, had 8 rushes for 43 yards and scored a touchdown from 1 yard out that put the Cyclones up 21-0 midway through the 3rd quarter.
Louis Trinca-Pasat: Lane Tech 37 – Whitney Young 14
Lane Tech celebrated its homecoming Halloween style and dominated Whitney Young 37 to 14. Trinca-Pasat had a good game consistently getting into the backfield and causing problems for the opposing quarterback.
Brandon Scherff: Denison 35 – Storm Lake 6
Denison won just its second game of the year beating Storm Lake soundly.
A.J. Derby: City High 22 – CR Kennedy 14
Shortly after announcing that he was a Hawkeye, Derby led the Little Hawks to a win at home keeping the team undefeated. Derby ran for 50 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. He also added 105 yards through the air, but had 4 interception.
Stephane N’goumou Milford 35 – Globe Institute 34
Milford Academy came back from being 18 down to tie then came, then score the go-ahead touchdown with just 2 minutes left. Globe Institute came back to score a touchdown with 4 seconds left, but missed the extra point giving Milford the victory.
B.J. Lowery Hughes Center 6 – West Carrollton 34
Hughes Center lost its fourth straight game falling to West Carrollton 6 to 34.
De’Andre Johnson Monsignor 20 – Chaminade – 24
Johnson with a torn ACL sat out again. The Spartans could have used Johnson’s running abilities though, as they failed to covert from the 3 yard-line as time expired.
