It was another good week for the Hawkeye recruits with only 2 losses on the board. There were a lot of good games, like DeSoto's 1-point OT win. And there were also some blowouts, like Barron Collier's defensive domination that forced 4 safeties. Jake Duzey gets my player of the week award for his 7 catches for 143 yards and scored his team's lone touchdown in a loss.
