Welp, what can you say? The Broncos don't lose often, but it certainly isn't much fun when they do. BUT, at least we saw it coming early on in the game. We had time to mentally prepare ourselves for the anguish. Michigan did not. We've lost in similar fashion, that is, on the last play of the game, or late in a game, and that is ten times more heartbreaking. It doesn't do us any good to dwell on the past though, so let's check in on our future Broncos, shall we?
Nick Crabtree, TE, Huntington Beach HS (Huntington Beach, CA)
The Oilers dropped one at home to Newport Harbor on Friday 33-27, moving to 3-4 on the year. Stats have not been updated for the game, but according to Nick's dad, HBHS isn't all that confident in their passing game right now. While Nick may not be catching much right now, he is definitely getting plenty of time to work on his blocking which will DEFINITELY come in handy once he gets to The Blue. The Oilers hope to bounce back against Edison this Friday.
Damarea Crockett, RB, Little Rock Christian Academy (Little Rock, AR)
The Warriors walked away with a hard fought win on Friday against Greenbriar 43-42 stay a perfect 7-0 on the season. Crockett was the star of the night rushing 49 times for 249 yards, 2 TDs and the winning 2-pt conversion. HUGE night to say the least. LRCA gets Clarksville at home this Friday.
