First off, a quick bit of photoshop work from Mrs. T-Mill:
Thank you. Thank you. Now back to the tracking entry.
This week a few more of our recruits ended their seasons and high school careers. I saw a comment left on last week's entry that punter Cody Webster dislocated his shoulder in game eight and was done for the season. Since he has no stats this week, there is no update on him. We will have our first update on the Mainland trio, however.
Sean Robinson - QB - Rochester, IL (Rochester) - Week two of the Illinois class 4A playoffs was smooth sailing for Robinson as the Rockets defeated Mt. Carmel 42-14. Rochester built a 42-0 halftime lead in this one and cruised the rest of the way. Robinson ran eight times for 104 yards, completed 6 of 6 passes for 158 yards, and had a pair of touchdowns each way. Rochester now moves to the state quarterfinals to face undefeated Quincy Notre Dame.
Charles Torwudzo - WR - Brownsburg, IN (Brownsburg) - Torwudzo is the only Indiana commitment that is still playing, as Brownsburg won its first sectional title since 1985 with a 42-14 win over rival Avon. Torwudzo caught three passes for 51 yards, but didn't have a touchdown this week. Thing will get much harder in the regional round this week as Brownsburg hosts Class 5A state power Warren Central.
Jeremy Cornelius - WR - Harrisburg, PA (Bishop McDevitt) - Bishop McDevitt is 9-0 and is awaiting the Pennsylvania state playoffs, which do not start until the weekend of November 28th. More information can be found here. Bishop McDevitt is also ranked 7th in the national East region according to USA Today.
De'Ron Flood - TE - O'Fallon, IL (O'Fallon) - O'Fallon plays in Illinois' class 7A and they also reached the quarterfinals with a dramatic 17-16 win over Lincoln-Way East. Video highlights can be found here thanks to St. Louis Today. Flood was the leading receiver with four catches for 50 yards. They now get a rematch with East St. Louis in the quartfinals. ESL beat O'Fallon 44-0 in week five of the regular season.
Mike Lee - LB - Pittsburgh, PA (Woodland Hills) - Like Cornelius, Lee's Woodland Hills team is awaiting the start of the Pennsylvania State playoffs.
Ryan Isaac - DE - Michigan City, IN (Michigan City) - Season over: Unlike Gilliam, there is no final stats site.
E.J. Johnson - DB - Cocoa, FL (Cocoa) - Cocoa wraped up its district title as the Tigers look to repeat as Florida's class 4A state champion. Cocoa beat Rockledge 14-0 in their closest game to date. Johnson sealed the game with an interception late. As always with Johnson, the link includes video.
Will Lucas - LB - Lakeland, FL (Lakeland) - Lakeland is now 9-0 after beating George Jenkins 36-6 last week. Their regular season finale vs. Kathleen is next. Lakeland has yet to update their defensive stats for the last two games.
Jesse Schmitt - LS - Louisville, KY (Trinity) - Trinity began the Kentucky state tournament with a 55-0 drubbing of Louisville Southern in round one. Trinity even gets video highlights this week.
Jhony Faustin - DB - Naples, FL (Lely) - Lely saw its postseason hopes go by the wayside when it couldn't hold a late lead against a 3rd string quarterback. Barron Collier overcame an 11 point fourth quarter deficit to win 38-27. Faustin did a little bit of everything in this one. He attempted a pass (that was intercepted), ran four times for 14 yards, and caught three passes for 41 yards in addition to returning punts.
Isaiah Williams - WR - Miami, FL (Monsignor Pace) - Monsignor Pace is in unfamiliar territory after losing to Gulliver Prep. The 28-27 Gulliver victory eliminated Pace from playoff contention. It will be the first time in 18 years that Pace does not participate. It was also the first time Gulliver defeated Pace on its home field.
Cody Webster - P - Harrisburg, PA (Central Dauphin East) - Webster's season is over after he aforementioned dislocated shoulder. CD East finished 1-8 this year and will not qualify for the playoffs.
Reggie Pegram - RB - Dallas, TX (James Madison) - Pegram finished the regular season with another huge game as Madison beat Ft. Worth Diamond Hill-Jarvis 53-0. Pegram had 141 yards on just five carries and two touchdowns. Dallas Madison did qualify for the state playoffs in class 3A division II. The pairings have yet to be released.
O.J. Ross -WR - Daytona, FL (Mainland) - Our first four star recruit is welcomed tot eh tracking report in a big way this week. Ross caught 3 passes for 95 yards, one of which was a 60 yards touchdown as Mainland handed DeLand its first loss of the season 21-14.
Chevin Davis - WR - Daytona, FL (Mainland) - Davis also had a pretty good game in this one, catching three passes for 44 yards and rushing twice for 27 yards.
Ricardo Allen - DB - Daytona, FL (Mainland) - Allen was not mentioned in the story above with the other guys. Mainland is now 7-2 on the season with its regular season finale at Seabreeze this week.
