Boise State's season is underway and that means that the senior seasons of next year's Broncos are also in full swing. Each weekend from now until the end of the high school season, I'll be checking in on some of the Broncos' 2011 recruits to see how they're faring. After the jump, we'll drop in on a few of the Bronco verbals (non-binding till February, yadda-yadda).
Running back recruit Jay Aayi's amazing season continued on Friday night as Frisco Liberty defeated Frisco Heritage by a score of 71-7 . Ajayi rushed for 190 yards and 4 scores in only one half of action for the 5-0 Redhawks. Ajayi has already passed the 1,000 yard mark on the season through only 5 games and scored 18 TDs. Even more remarkable, Ajayi has only played past halftime in 2 games this season.
Stats haven't been updated regularly, but I can tell you that through last Friday (September 24), Cosumnes Oaks D-line commit Robert Ash has registered 36 tackles on the year with 3 sacks, 1 blocked field goal and 2 forced fumbles in the mix as well.
Meridian's Rocky Mountain High School suffered their first loss of the season on Friday to Couer d'Alene High, but WR commit Dallas Burroughs put on a clinic just the same—catching 14 passes for 228 yards and 3 TDs in the loss.
Safety commit Taylor Loffler continues his one-man band routine for the Kelowna (BC) Owls and shredded the New Westminster squad single-handedly on Friday night. Loffler ran for 6 touchdowns ((1, 31, 1, 6, 65 and 73 yards) and threw a 7th—a 60-yard scoring strike to Brook Blackmore. The praise for Loffler this season has been nothing short of effusive...just check out what New Westminster head coach Farhan Lalji had to say about the 6'4" athlete:
"We had him pinned for a big loss and he somehow pulled a Houdini and breaks nine tackles," said New Westminster head coach Farhan Lalji. "He is by far without peer. He impacts the game in more ways than anyone in recent memory. (Terry Fox 2008 running back) Joe Patko was good, but this guy does it in different ways. He can destroy you with his arm, destroy you with his legs and he makes more than half their tackles on defence."
De La Salle star LB Blake Renaud did indeed jack up his foot in last week's contest against Bishop Gorman and did not play on Friday. De La Salle still defeated Foothill 49-7.
Whittier Christian DT commit Jeff Worthy finally returned last week from knee injury and registered 4 tackles against St. Margarets and a forced fumble. Whittier Christian is undefeated on the year.
