We’ve rounded up some commitment stats and notes. As generally is the case with high school statistics, consider them unofficial since they were gathered from various local sources.
RB/ATH Joc Bruce: Bruce was held out of Friday’s game against Cherokee due to an ankle injury but is expected to return next week. South Doyle won 48-0 in Bruce’s absence.
QB Quinten Dormady: Dormady had one of his best performances of the season as he led Boerne High School to a 35-21 win over Taylor High School. Dormady finished the night 27-of-40 passing for 333 yards, 5 touchdowns and one interception.
OL Jack Jones: Jones threw the block that opened the hole for Oakland’s game-winning touchdown in the 4th quarter. Here’s the account from Tom Kreager of the Daily News Journal: “Josh Cunningham scored the game winner with less than two minutes to play on Friday night. But give teammate and Tennessee commitment Jack Jones the assist. Jones tossed Cunningham out of a pile at midfield and Cunningham did the rest, breaking free for a 51-yard touchdown with 1:38 left to give Oakland a 17-10 win over Chattanooga Baylor on a rain-soaked field at Ray Hughes Stadium.”
RB Rocky Reid: Rocky Reid continues to dominate the game from his running back spot. Reid rushed 25 times for 368 yards and 5 touchdowns on Friday as his team won 62-20. His performance puts him atop the Cabarrus County all-time rushing leader list. Here’s the line on his accomplishment from the Charlotte Observer: “Reid now has 1,550 yards this season and 6,583 in his career. That breaks the old Cabarrus County record set by two-time N.C. player of the year Nick Maddox (6,254) in 1998.”
WR Preston Williams: Williams didn’t have many catches – only three – but he did make the most of them as his three snags went for 101 yards and 2 touchdowns. Williams and Lovejoy got back in the win column 42-7. (per @JHillsman)
*Athlete Vincent Perry and Hillsboro were off this week, as were Blackman High school and Ath/QB Jauan Jennings. Running back Alvin Kamara and Hutchinson Community College will play later this evening. On the year, Kamara has rushed 127 times for 912 yards and 13 touchdowns.
DE Andrew Butcher: This from the AJC about Alpharetta’s d-line in its 39-0 win over Centennial: “Alpharetta’s defensive line, led by Tennessee-commit Andrew Butcher, caused havoc for a Centennial offense that was forced to play four quarterbacks due to injuries and ineffectiveness.”
ATH/DE Darrell Taylor: Taylor caught a 25-yard touchdown pass to help his Hopewell squad pile up 68 points in a win (via @NFullerPI)
LB Austin Smith & DL Quay Picou: It was another dominant night for the Buford (6-0) defense, which shut out North Hall 56-0
DT Shy Tuttle: It was an active night for the 5* DT who made several stops and deflected a ball that he almost caught for a pick-6. Here’s a full game recap with some good pictures as well.
CB Micah Abernathy: Abernathy celebrated his Tennessee commitment with a huge night on offense and special teams. He ran for 157 yards and 2 TDs and also returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown in Greater Atlanta Christian School’s 37-7 win over Pace (via gwinnettprepsports.com)
QB Austin Kendall: He accounted for all three touchdowns in Cuthbertson’s win: a 37-yard TD run, a 37-yard TD pass & a 15-yard TD pass (via @zachwomble1)
RB: Dorian Banks: Banks found the end zone twice – once on a 29-yard reception and again on a 7-yard run (via The Gallatin News)
