Everyone's season is now underway as far as our current high school commitments. Our pair of Florida commits were the last to get started this weekend, and honestly those are two of the guys I am the most excited to see. Hopefully we will have more to add to this list very soon, as 3-star cornerback Jabari Price is headed to town for this weekend's Northern Illinois game. He have not had a new commit in a while, but I expect some word to be coming in before too long now that we have three straight home game to accept visitors.
Sean Robinson - QB - Rochester, IL (Rochester) - Another week, another win for the Rockets as they played their first road contest of the season. Rochester came away with a 49-14 road victory to move to 3-0. Rochester is the #1 team in Illinois class 4A. Robinson was a very efficient 7 of 10 passing for 145 yards and four TD's. He also ran nine times for 69 yards.
Joe Gilliam - LB - Southport, IN (Southport) - Gilliam helped lead Southport to a 23-10 victory over Township-rival Perry Meridian Friday night. Perry Meridian does not have a stellar record, but this is a fierce rivalry. Both schools are in the same township school corporation in Indy and actually share a stadium, with one playing at home while the other is on the road.
Charles Torwudzo - WR - Brownsburg, IN (Brownsburg) - Chuck T helped Brownsburg move to 3-1 with a crucial Hoosier Crossroads Conference win Friday night against Westfield. Torwudzo had four catches and a touchdown as Brownsburg used a late defensive stand to hold off the Shamrocks
Jeremy Cornelius - WR - Harrisburg, PA (Bishop McDevitt) - The Crusaders had a big win this week, topping Cedar Cliff 49-7. Cornelius had three catches for 72 yards, but did not catch one of four touchdown passes thrown by his quarterback.
De'Ron Flood - TE - O'Fallon, IL (O'Fallon) - O'Fallon moved to 2-1 on the year with a 40-14 win over Granite City Friday night. Flood caught just one pass for two yards, but helped block for an offense than collected over 400 total yards.
Josh Davis - DT - Plain City, OH (Jonathan Alder) - Alder is now 0-3 on the year after a tough 10-9 loss to Clinton-Massie. Davis was a key cog in this defensive struggle, as Alder missed a last second 49 yard field goal that would have resulted in victory.
Mike Lee helped pitch a shutout here for Woodland Hills.
Ryan Isaac - DE - Michigan City, IN (Michigan City) - Thanks to Isaac's play on both offense and defense, the Wolves are 4-0 for the first time ever. The two City schools, Rogers and Elston, merged together in the early 90's, but the Wolves are having their best season ever now with a 21-17 win over historically strong Valparaiso Friday night. Michigan City hosts another strong team, 3-1 Merrillville, this coming Friday.
E.J. Johnson - DB - Cocoa, FL (Cocoa) - Cocoa got its season underway by thrashing American Heritage 41-3. John had a pick in the game, showing that he may be the future ball-hawking safety we have been looking for. Remember, he had three picks in last season's state championship game for Cocoa.
Will Lucas - LB - Lakeland, FL (Lakeland) - Lakeland started the season 1-0 with a 28-0 victory over Winter Haven. The Dreadnaughts are ranked #2 in their class after being the state runner-up last year. Lucas had 12 tackles, 3 for loss, and a sack in the game. I also found a Lakeland high football site that tracks everything about the Dreadnaughts for your pleasure. This is a kid I really like, and I think he is a very underrated player.
Will Lucas making a QB sack in his season debut. I am really excited about this commitment.
Jesse Schmitt - LS - Louisville, KY (Trinity) - Trinity fell to 1-2 on the season by losing to perennial power Cincinnati Elder 26-7. There is no shame in this loss, however, as Elder is ranked #3 in the nation by USA Today.
