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 Joc Bruce: It wasn’t a huge game for Bruce, but he was able to punch in the go-ahead touchdown for the Cherokee’s in the final minutes of their 13-10 win over Morristown East.
QB Quinten Dormady: Dormady had four touchdown passes in his team’s 37-28 loss to Liberty Hill. We will try to find his complete stat line and update this post when we do.
QB Jauan Jennings: Jennings and Blackman beat Siegel by a score of 42-28. Here’s an excerpt from the report by The Tennessean:
“Blackman’s offense made the most of its only two drives in the first half as Charlie Davidson scored on a 19-yard run before University of Tennessee commitment Jauan Jennings added a 16-yard scoring run with 32.3 seconds left in the half. Jennings threw for 132 yards, while adding 51 yards rushing.”
RB Alvin Kamara: Last week, Kamara had 8 carries for 36 yards and a touchdown as the defense really keyed on stopping the Hutchinson rushing attack. However, Kamara was able to make some big plays in the passing game to make up for it, hauling in 3 catches for 77 yards and another score. No. 4 Hutchinson has a huge matchup with No. 2 Iowa Western this Saturday.
TE Kyle Oliver: Oliver caught at least one pass on Friday night in Oakland’s 42-20 win over Riverdale and he made it count. With his team trailing 14-7 early in the game, Oliver broke free in the end zone and hauled in a five yard touchdown pass from quarterback JaCorey Smith.
RB Rocky Reid: Reid turned in another outstanding performance for Concord, again surpassing the 200-yard mark with 20 carries for 228 yards and 2 touchdowns. Here’s the recap of his first two carries on the night from the Independent Tribune:
“On the Spiders first play from scrimmage, the offensive line was able to get the edge blocked and Reid cut outside for a 65-yard dash down the sideline. On the next play, the senior back scored from four yards to give the Spiders a quick 7-0 first quarter lead.”
WR Preston Williams: Williams and Lovejoy High School play Saturday afternoon.
DE Andrew Butcher: Butcher had another big night, piling up 7 tackles, 2 sacks and 2 TFLs in Alpharetta’s 24-14 win vs. S. Forsyth on Friday night (via @bbutcher62)
DE/ATH Darrell Taylor: No complete stat line for Taylor, but the dynamic defensive end and athlete had a least one sack and forced fumble in Hopewell’s 28-17 loss to Dinwiddie. (via The Times Dispatch)
DE Dylan Jackson: Jackson led Maryville to a dominant 62-0 shutout of Bearden on Friday. It was a shorter night for Jackson as the Rebels had this one in control by halftime.
DT Quay Picou & LB Austin Smith: Speaking of taking care of business, Buford High School, where Picou and Smith play, remained undefeated with a 56-0 blowout win over North Hall.
CB Darrell Miller: Miller’s team made a national television appearance on Thursday night and won a 65-42 shootout over DeSoto.
QB Austin Kendall: Kendall completed 12-of-27 passes for 169 yards, 5 TDs and no interceptions. He added 47 yards on the ground on four carries in Cuthbertson’s 35-19 win over Anson. (via MaxPreps)
ATH Dorian Banks: Banks does a lot for his Gallatin team and when starting running back Jordan Mason went down for the night, Banks stepped in at that spot and rushing for 180 yards and at least one TD in a 28-27 loss to Mt. Juliet. (via The Tennessean)
