We have a short week this week, so we are posting this today instead of tomorrow.
What a game last night, am I right? Not quite what people were expecting, well, except for the 3rd quarter. The last 5 minutes about gave me a heart attack. We have some special teams work to do for sure, but the defense played well and once the weather let up, the offense got rolling. It was a solid, hard-fought win for our boys.
Don’t try and devalue this for them saying it was a bad win or it shouldn’t have happened. It dismisses the determination of both teams to win this game. Give credit where credit is due as well. Colorado State played well on the lines and played all 4 quarters. They executed the onside kicks perfectly and took advantage of their opportunities. Despite some adversity, the Broncos buckled down and managed time well in the waning minutes/seconds and came out with the win.
We have a short week to prepare for BYU. I have no doubt the Broncos will come out swinging! Let’s touch base with the future Broncos
Jermani Brown, ATH, Midlothian HS (Midlothian, VA)
Midlo lost a close and low scoring contest to James River Christian Academy 27-12. MaxPreps has them at 1-7, but the Richmond Times has lists them at 2-6, which I believe is correct.
According to the article, Jermani did not play in the game either.
The Trojans travel to Monacan this Friday, but are likely of playoff contention.
Marques Evans, DB, Newbury Park HS (Newbury Park, CA)
Evans had a bye this week, so what better way to spend it than on the Blue? He took an official visit this weekend and it looks like he enjoyed himself.
Newbury Park gets Calabasas on the 21st at home.
Zeke Birch, DT, Madison HS (Rexburg, ID)
Madison handled Bonneville on Friay, winning 33-14 and moving to 7-1 on the year. Stats aren’t available for the game nor are stats for Zeke this season. While the below highlights aren’t for Zeke, it covers the game itself.
Madison travels to Skyline on Friday.
Aisa Kelemete, DE, Highland HS (Pocatello, ID)
Highland continues their win streak with a 42-14 victory over Rigby, improving to 5-3 and a perfect 3-0 in conference.
While I couldn’t find stats for Aisa, he did have a special visitor at his homecoming game.
He also gets some nice pressure on the QB in the below highlight, the lone one available for the game.
Highland travels to Hillcrest on Friday.
Isiah Moore, OT, Mesa CC (Mesa, AZ)
The Thunderbirds downed Glendall CC again 48-14, improving to 6-1 on the year and 4-0 in conference play. It also garnered them a #6 ranking. This is the longest win streak for Mesa since going 7-2 in 1991. Yup, 25 years ago. Not stats were available in the box score of the game.
Not sure if I have already posted this, but Isiah has a mid-season highlight tape.
Mesa has a bye this week, but travels to Scottsdale CC on the 29th.
Breydon Boyd, LB, Katy HS (Katy, TX)
Katy PUMMELED Morton Ranch on Friday 68-9 improving to 5-2 on the year and 4-0 in conference play. They are currently the #15 team Texas. The first half ended with a score of 61-6. WOW.
I still have yet to find solid stats for Breydon, but I’ll keep my eyes open for sure. MaxPreps has no stats for him all year.
Katy gets Tompkins at home on Thursday.
Michael Young, DB, Dodge City CC (Dodge City, KS)
Dodge City beat Fort Scott on the road 45-35 improving to 6-2, 3-1 in conference. Michael had 5 total tackles, 4 solo and a fumble caused.

Chase Cord, QB, Sunrise Mountain HS (Peoria, AZ)
Sunrise Mountain defeated Peoria on Friday, moving to 7-1 on the season and 3-0 in section. Chase was 14-19 for 284 yards and 3 TDs as well as 2 INTs that were tipped.
Sunrise Mountain takes on Greenway at home on Friday.

Conroe gets The Woodlands at home this Friday.
Tyreque Jones DB, San Gorgonio HS (San Bernardino, CA)
SGHS remains a perfect 2-0 in conference play after a 59-0 blanking of Rialto on Friday. They are 4-3 on the season. While stats weren’t available for the game yet, Tyreque had at least one reception for a TD by virtue of the highlight below
