Stephen Collier clinched a winning season at Lee County High School and, in the process, his graduating class was the first team to have back-to-back winning seasons in school history. Facing off against Hardaway, Collier accounted for three total touchdowns, two by way of pass and one on the ground. Though they weren't the biggest numbers of the year for him, Collier's squad was able to pick up their sixth win of the season and are still undefeated on the year.

Parris Campbell continued to show off his home run threat ability, taking a punt return 89 yards to the holy land.

On the offensive side of the ball, Campbell ran five times for 65 yards—a modest 13 yards per carry average. There's a chance that Parris Campbell could be the most proven playmaker when stepping on campus next fall, as he's been the most consistent throughout this season. Teammate Dante Booker only recorded 1.5 tackles for the game, but most of that can be credited to being out of the game early as the Fighting Irish rolled over Northwest 61-7.
Lonnie Johnson put up over 100 yards of total offense with the damage being done as a pas catcher as well as a rusher. Johnson compiled 63 rushing yards and a touchdown on two carries and added three receptions for 49 yards. Lonnie is an interesting prospect that can be used as a wide receiver as well as safety when he rolls into Columbus.
Thats D1 speed. Lonnie Johnson takes it 60 yds for a Td. 2pt no good. Govs up 27-20 with 9mins still left. We'll be here for awhile. @TheRSN— Alex Ramirez (@HHBC_41) October 5, 2013
Terry McLaurin had another big night in Cathedral High School's victory with eight catches for 167 yards and a touchdown. Cathedral seems to go as McLaurin goes and that's no surprise. McLaurin has elite speed with elite talent. His Irish are currently a game below .500 but will look to get hot over the last two games of the year—one coming against Moeller High School, and Sam Hubabrd, on October 18th.
Jamarco Jones has finally got into the football action, receiving his first playing time of the year after recovering from a shoulder injury in the offseason. From the looks of things, it looks like Jamarco was a tad anxious about his return. On a serious note, it's great to see Jones back on the field as he should challenge for playing time right away next year.
Jamarco got a penalty for pancaking someone 40 yards down the field lol.— Shelby Spence (@HeismanSpence) October 5, 2013
To defense, Damon Webb, again, did not have much action, yes surprise surprise. Cass Tech wasn't challenged either as the Technicians cruised to a 69-0 victory. On offense, Webb was involved by catching a touchdown pass, but was pulled after one quarter of play do to the score.
Safety prospect Malik Hooker had quite the night for himself as well. Other than getting himself an interception, Hooker's biggest performance came on the other side of the ball where he had TD runs of 80 and 47 yards to lead his team to a three point victory. Coach Urban Meyer has to love how Hooker performed in a close game as being clutch is a trait he covets.
Sam Hubbard and Moeller High School were able to stay unbeaten on Saturday afternoon with the Crusaders fighting to a 31-28 victory over La Salle. Hubbard was in on eight tackles and also had a pass break up. Things won't lighten up next week as Moeller takes on Elder.
The young pups:
- Eric Glover-Williams rushed for 147 yards, threw for 129 and scored four times to lead McKinley to a 53-45 victory to keep their unbeaten season alive.
- Worth noting: Of all the 18 commits in the Dream 14 at the moment, eight are playing on undefeated teams. Counting Eric Glover-Williams runs that total to nine.
