Dimitri Flowers, TE, 6-3, 220 lbs. (Churchill HS, San Antonio, TX)
Churchill trounced Roosevelt on Saturday night, and no that's not revisionist WWII history. The Churchill Chargers moved to 5-3 on the year after a 49-7 victory over Roosevelt and Flowers was a big reason why. The Boise-bound TE/WR had 2 TDs in the contest—1 rushing TD and a 57-yard TD reception. Flowers finished the night with 168 receiving yards and did so in front of a small Boise State rooting section who attended the game to get a glimpse at the future Bronco. They came away impressed with Flowers' athletic versatility and blocking prowess. The blurry proof is below.
Churchill will take on Reagan this Friday. Article about Dimitri and his proud football lineage.
Jalen Greene, QB, 6-2, 185 lbs. (Serra HS, Gardena, CA)

On the year, Greene has 21 TD strikes and just 4 INTs. Serra is now ranked 10th in the MaxPreps national top 25. Greene and company will take on unbeaten St. Francis this Friday.
Shay Fields, WR, 5-11, 170 lbs. (St. John Bosco, Bellflower, CA)
Well, that was fast. About 5 days after Shay Fields assured Boise State fans that he wasn't swayed by a recent USC offer, Shay jumped ship and committed to...gasp...USC. Fields was one of the verbals I was most excited about so far, but alas, it wasn't meant to be. Both parties will now move on and his exploits will no longer be reported in this weekly round up. Best of luck to you, Shay—and no hard feelings.
Sean Modster, WR, 5-11, 185 lbs. (Mission Viejo HS, Mission Viejo, CA)
