Bye weeks are great and terrible at the same time. The Broncos get a chance to heal any wounds and really study tape for their next opponent. The struggle is it creates a slooooow week for content.
Fotunately, our future Broncos played this week! Let’s see how they did.
Jermani Brown, ATH, Midlothian HS (Midlothian, VA)
Midlothian suffered yet another loss this week, this time at the hands of Cosby. No, not Bill, the high school in Virginia. The final score was 34-20 and that moves the Trojans to 0-4. I couldn’t find any stats for Jermani unfortunately. Midlothian gets Wythe at home this week, looking to get a win.
Marques Evans, DB, Newbury Park HS (Newbury Park, CA)
Newbury Park lost their first game on Friday to Valencia 56-35, making them 3-1 on the year. Based on the below tweet, it sounds like Evans was fighting a bug and didn’t play.
No QB Cameron Rising & no Marques Evans for Newbury Park. Rising said he is "a little beat up" & needed rest. Evans has been sick all week.— Tony Ciniglio (@TCiniglio) September 17, 2016
NPHS gets Venice at home this Friday.
Zeke Birch, DT, Madison HS (Rexburg, ID)
Madison remained perfect at 5-0 after blanking Blackfoot 56-0. Not a ton of info out there regarding the game other than Blackfoot got destroyed. No info on Zeke either.
Aisa Kelemete, DE, Highland HS (Pocatello, ID)
With the return of Kelemete comes Highlands first win. They handled Century 30-7 on Friday, moving to 1-3.

It doesn’t sound like Aisa is fully healed quite yet and will have surgery at the end of the season.
Aisa Kelemete will have surgery to fix his torn labrum after the season. "The doctor said 4 months of rehab, and I'll be back to how I was."— Michael Guise (@Michael_Guise) September 17, 2016
Full stats for the game aren’t available, but I was able to find a small highlight of Aisa from the game. Pocatello visits on Friday. The Rams will be looking for another win.
Isiah Moore, OT, Mesa CC (Mesa, AZ)
Mesa took down #1 ranked Snow College on Saturday 33-19 to move to 2-1.
While stats aren’t available for Isiah, Mesa gained 62 yards on the ground to Snow’s 34. It was not a high offensive output game, with the total yards between the teams totaling 713 yards, most of it through the air. It was a HUGE win for Mesa, to say the least. Next up is Glendale CC at home next Saturday.
Breydon Boyd, LB, Katy HS (Katy, TX)
Katy got back in the win column with a resounding 45-7 victory over Cinco Ranch on Friday. That makes them an even 2-2 on the year. Oddly I could not find stats for Breydon. They existed for the game, but Breydon didn’t have any tackles credited to him. I have a hard time believing that, unless of course he was injured. MaxPreps had a photo of him with a pretty hefty wrap on hits left wrist. Maybe that played a role? Either way, Katy won. They get Katy Taylor at home this Thursday. Below are Breydon’s highlights from his game against The Woodlands last week.
Michael Young, DB, Dodge City CC (Dodge City, KS)
Dodge City beat Ellsworth 24-14 on Saturday moving to 3-1. Michael had a solid game with 3 total tackles, 2 pass break-ups and 1 interception for 40 yards. That gives him 16 total tackles, 4 pass break-ups, one interception and 2 blocked kicks for the year. Dodge City travels to Butler on Saturday.
Chase Cord, QB, Sunrise Mountain HS (Peoria, AZ)
Sunrise Mountain destroyed Thunderbird Friday 65-6, keeping them a perfect 4-0.
I can’t for the life of me find Chase’s actual stats, but rest assured, once I find them I’ll update this post.
Sunrise Mountain takes on Julian Carter’s Saguaro next Friday, looking to stay unbeaten.
Mike Young, OT, Queen Creek HS (Queen Creek, AZ)
Queen Creek notched a win against Deer Valley on Friday 42-21, moving to 4-1 on the year. He had 7 total tackles, 4 solo, and it looks like he had a fumble recovery for a TD in the win. He also had a quarterback hurry.
Heard big Mike Young has a TD for Queen Creek tonight. Boise State commit— Jason Jewell (@jason247scout) September 17, 2016
Queen Creek gets visiting Ironwood Ridge next week.
That will do it this week for the future Broncos. Was hoping for more info this week, but not dice. Was also hoping for a commit, but Drew must have been on his phone all weekend. Looking forward to an awesome season for our Broncos as well as our 2017 commits! GO BRONCOS!
