QB Cody Kessler (team won 63-7)
What began as a shootout turned into a skeet shoot for Centennial High as the Golden Hawks simply overpowered East for a 63-7 homecoming victory Friday night at Centennial. USC-bound quarterback Cody Kessler gave what was, for him, a pedestrian effort, finishing 6-of-12 for 102 yards and two scores. He also scampered around left end for a 10-yard scoring run. Kessler so far has a phenomenal senior season. He has completed 62-of-81 passes for 1,065 yards, 14 touchdowns and just one interception. He’s also ran for two TDs in leading Centennial to a 4-0 start and the No. 10 state ranking in the latest Cal Hi Sports poll.
QB Max Wittek and WR Victor Blackwell (team won 48-0)
The Monarchs (3-2) scored on all but one of their first-half possessions against the Panthers (0-5). Mater Dei had the ball for just six minutes and 10 seconds of the entire first half. The Monarchs needed 76 seconds to pick up all the points they’d need on their opening drive. Mater Dei marched 61 yards in six plays, capped by the first of Max Wittek’ s five touchdown passes, a 22-yarder to a wide-open Sedric Hill. Wittek was 9 of 16 passing for 148 yards in the game and did not play in the second half. Wittek would also hook up with Victor Blackwell three times from 32, 8 and 18 yards out.
RB Amir Carlisle (team lost 35-14)
The Bears’ defense did a good job of not letting Knights star back Amir Carlisle break his patented long runs. Carlisle finished with 166 yards on 29 carries. “That kid can run the ball,” said Ta’ufo’ou of Carlisle. “He’s fast, he’s athletic. He’s probably the best back around here.” Carlisle broke through the pile on one run and was going to score, but his helmet came off during the scrum. By rule, the play is blown dead when that happens. It was that kind of night for the Knights, but Kellner said his club will bounce back.
WR DeAnthony Arnett (team won 42-22)
Marquavis Ford connected with DeAnthony Arnett on three passing touchdowns as Saginaw High notched its first win of the season over Flint Southwestern, 42-22, on Friday night. “It’s so great because our kids hung in there even though they hadn’t won a game prior to (Friday),” Saginaw High coach Gary Lee said. “A lot of kids would have walked away, but our kids didn’t.” Ford connected with Arnett on touchdown passes of 45, 60 and 22 yards.
ATH Colt Lyerla (team lost 30-14)
Hillsboro’s Colt Lyerla finished with four carries for 14 yards. It was a turnaround performance from one of the nation’s top prospects in the 2011 recruiting class. Last week, the 6-foot-5, 225-pound running back/linebacker racked up 241 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns in Hillsboro’s 39-21 win over crosstown rival Glencoe.
LB Curtis Grant (team won 34-7)
Top-ranked Hermitage Panthers defense anchored by linebacker Curtis Grant (10 tackles, 2 sacks), held Mills Godwin scoreless for three quarters in a Colonial District matchup. Grant has cut Virginia from his list and plans to leave the state to play college football. Clemson, USC, Florida, Alabama and North Carolina are thought to be front runners with Grant though he’s not publicly confirmed any favorites.
LB Lamar Dawson (team won 48-10)
Boyle ran up 508 yards, scored 14 points off three turnovers and handed Lexington Catholic a 49-10 trouncing in the teams’ Class AAAA, District 6 opener. “Our running game has been super all year long with Chris Cook and Devon Cox, now you got Lamar (Dawson) running the ball some. He also gives you a great blocker back there,” Boyle coach Larry French. Lamar Dawson ran for 79 yards in 12 carries and Hale hit Dawson for 18 yards and 16 yards. In Defense Lamar anchored Rebels as they controlled the line of scrimmage. “We took the run away from them and forced them to throw the ball almost every down,” French said. “We’re playing pretty well right now. And that’s what you want your team to do.”
LB Kent Turene (team won 19-13)
The Cobras took the lead in the three-team District 14-5A race, defeating rival Dillard 19-13 at Lockhart Stadium on Saturday. Kent Turene was very active, made several tackles, had a few big hits that drew “ooohh” from the crowd. All though he will take visits, Kent said that he can’t wait to be a Trojan and help the USC defense.
LB Lateek Townsend (team won 6-0)
With a defense led by linebacker Lateek Townsend, the Malboro County are allowing just 13.3 points per game. The Bulldogs held Crestwood without a score with 6 – 0 hard fought win in South Carolina.
DE Greg Townsend Jr (team lost 53-0)
The Alemany Warriors scored two touchdowns on their first two possessions at Friday night’s home game on Nickoll Field. The team from Mission Hills went on to defeat Beverly Hills High School 53-0 in the Normans final non-league match up. Defensive end Greg Townsend Jr. blocked Martin Meza’s extra point, one of three Alemany extra points blocked on Friday. But at the end its just too much Alemany for Beverly Hills High boys.
DE Koa Ka’ai (team won 21-17)
Defensive end Koa Ka’ai, one of the state’s most heavily recruited players made the game winning sack for his team. He was all over the place and made couple of tackles as the opponent try to run the ball away from him. Pac-Five which hasn’t beaten Kamehameha this decade, took a 17-13 lead with 2 minutes remaining. After a timeout, Akana hit Ruelke on a slant for his second touchdown of the half to give Kamehameha the lead. On the final play, Pac-Five tried a Hail Mary, but their quarterback Foster was sacked by Koa Ka’ai.
DE Jalen Grimble (team won 56-0)
USC commit Jalen Grimble led the Gael’ s defense again as they held their opponent without a score. Grimble had a complete game as he over power anyone that was place in front of him. He looks to be very dominant just like a man child out there.
DT Antwaun Woods (team lost 53-47)
A USC-bound defensive lineman, Woods, a 6-foot-1, 305-pounder, played fullback for the first time Friday in a 53-47 loss at Crespi, primarily as a blocking back for Kenny Thompson, whom Woods helped spring for 170 yards rushing and three touchdowns.Almost every time Thompson carried the football, Woods was his lead blocker.”It was pretty nice,” Woods said. “I think it’s pretty intimidating to go up against a 300-pound fullback.”Woods wants to score a touchdown, but so far Taft has not installed any running plays for him.”I definitely want to do that. I’m going to have to talk to the coach about it,” Woods said. Now i know where the taft defense went.
OL Torian White (team lost 27-14)
Lakewood Right tackle Torian White done a fantastic job protecting Shultz and opening holes for ten different running backs this season. He looks very athletic and dominant in the line. He protects the run as well as anybody in the state. But in the end Poly’s defense was too much for Lakewood to handle. Jackrabbits’ defense, strengthened by the return of several injured players, was magnificent behind linebackers Josh Fasavalu and Salamo Fiso.
Class of 2012
OL/DL Arik Armstead (team won 40-0)
Pleasant Grove led 34-0 at the half and cruised to its sixth consecutive win. Junior lineman Arik had five tackles and about 7-8 pancakes, but he had limited play because of the score. Arik has also been offered a scholarship by Alabama this week.
WR Jordan Payton (team won 50-20)
Jordan Payton caught seven passes for 90 yards and a touchdown for Oaks Christian. “It was good to get back to winning,” Payton said. “We needed to come out and put points on the board. We will get better each week.”
LB Tre Madden – Fractured right foot
DE Brennan Scarlett – Broken Collarbone
