Jalen Greene, QB, 6-2, 185 lbs. (Serra HS, Gardena, CA)
Serra is still alive in the CIF playoffs and still undefeated after having no trouble with Pacifica on Friday night. Greene really only played in the first half of the 48-16 blowout, but was 9-13 for 148 yards and 2 TDs with one more TD coming on the ground. On the year, Greene now has 2,109 yards and 28 TDs and 12 rushing TDs as well. Serra will take on Buena in the CIF Southern Section Playoffs second round this Friday. A win will propel them into the semi-finals.
Sean Modster, WR, 5-11, 185 lbs. (Mission Viejo HS, Mission Viejo, CA)
Mission Viejo also remained unbeaten on Friday and punched a ticket to the CIF second round in convincing fashion—defeating Crespi 45-0. Modster's stats were not found for the contest—they will take on powerhouse Mater Dei this Friday to try to secure a spot in the CIF Southern Section (Pac 5 division) semifinals.
Drew Sample, TE, 6-5, 235 lbs. (Newport HS, Bellevue, WA)
Newport played Bellarmine Prep on Saturday in the second round of the Washington State playoffs, but were unable to hang on to a late lead and Bellarmine advanced with a 38-35 win. Sample had 2 TDs in the loss and the Newport squad finished their year 8-3.
Brandon Lewis, CB, 5-10, 170 lbs. (Pleasant Grove High School, Elk Grove, CA)
Lewis is done for the remainder of the year with a hamstring injury, but his PGHS squad rolls on—defeating Modesto 48-12 on Friday night to grab a spot in the CIF San Joaquin Section Playoff second round. Lewis finished his season with 444 rushing yards and 8 TDs. PGHS will take on Stagg this Friday in the second round.
Greg Gaines, DT, 6-2, 295 lbs. (La Habra HS, La Habra, CA)
La Habra punched their ticket to the second round of the CIF Southern Section Playoffs (Southwest Division) on Friday night and will prepare for a matchup with Newport Harbor this Friday. La Habra improved to 10-1 on the year with their win and Gaines registered 2 sacks, (at least) 2 TFLs and forced a fumble. His season stats have yet to be compiled, but they should be impressive when they finally come out.
Khalil Oliver, S, 6-1, 170 lbs. (Rocky Mountain High School, Meridian, ID)
Oliver's final season with Rocky Mountain came to a sudden end on Friday night as they ran into a buzz saw at Holt Arena called the Highland Rams. Rocky finished their season at 10-2 and made it all the way to the state semis. If his stats become available, I will make sure they are posted.
Ryan Griswold, OT, 6-5, 250 lbs. (Pearland HS, Pearland, TX)
Pearland won their opening round matchup against Deer Park on Friday and will move on to the round of 32 in the Texas 5A State Playoffs. With the win, Pearland moved to 10-1 on the year and will play Fort Bend Austin on Friday evening.
Jesse Sosebee, OT, 6-6, 300 lbs. (Edison High School, Huntington Beach, CA)
Edison defeated Cypress on Friday night to move to the CIF Southern Section (Southwest Division) Playoff second round. Edison will take on Villa Park this Friday to try to stamp their ticket to the semifinals, and if all goes well, they could end up playing Greg Gaines' La Habra squad in two weeks.
Jaylen Johnson, DE, 6-3, 235 lbs (Centennial High School, Corona, CA)
Centennial improved to 9-2 on Friday night with a win over Etiwanda and more importantly stayed alive in the CIF Playoffs (Southern Section Inland Division). Johnson's stats were not logged in the win, but you'll remember that prior to Friday's outing, he'd notched 63 tackles (3 for loss) and 2 sacks. Centennial will take on Chapparal this Friday to try to land in the CIF semis.
Kekoa Nawahine, ATH, 6-2, 190 lbs (Rocky Mountain High School, Meridian, ID)
Obviously being a teammate of Khalil Oliver's, Nawahine's season ended on Friday night in the state semis against Highland. Kekoa's stats for the game were not made available, but at the time of his commitment last week, he'd hauled in 45 passes for 834 yards and 5 TDs and made 63 tackles (2 for loss) and 4 INTs.
Troy Bacon, OG, 6-4, 280 lbs (Apple Valley High School, Apple Valley, CA)
Boise State's newest commit is riding high after giving his verbal to the Broncos, but he had a bit of a disappointing senior season at AVHS. The squad went just 4-6 on the year and lost their finale to Serrano, missing the playoffs. Luckily, Bacon won't have to worry about any more losing seasons from here on out, as the Broncos secured their 16th straight winning season last night against Wyoming.
Stats are hard to come by in many prep circles. If you have any tips on any of the 2014 Bronco verbal commits, let me know.
