Leaving exactly where he left off last week, Martell was a key factor in Bishop Gorman’s easy 69-13 win over Spring Valley (NV) on Friday evening.
Only playing in the first half, the future Buckeye quarterback completed 9 of his 13 passing attempts for 178 yards and three touchdowns, while also carrying the ball six times for 72 yards and two more Bishop Gorman scores.
Taking on crosstown rival Skyline High, Simmons and his Ann Arbor Pioneer squad played a hard fought ball game, but ended up just short of walking away victorious, falling 21-20.
Seeing time on both sides of the ball for Pioneer, Simmons, who will play linebacker full-time once he arrives on the Ohio State campus, showed off his speed and athleticism on Friday. At linebacker, the four-star standout racked up four total tackles.
While his presence was felt on defense it was on offense where Simmons did most of his damage on the game. Scoring two touchdowns in the loss, his play of the night came on an 80 yard reception and score early in the fourth quarter.
Returning to the field after sitting out due to injury, White led Olentangy Liberty to a huge win over Westerville South on Friday.
Completing 11 of his 21 passing attempts, the four-star athlete accounted for 122 yards and a touchdown. One of the fastest kids on the field, he also toted the rock 15 times for another 65 yards to help the Patriots past the Wildcats.
Snead has missed a little time this season, but is starting to get back to his old tricks. In Armwood’s (FL) 38-14 convincing win over Tampa Bay Tech, Snead was definitely one of the nights top play-makers.
Rushing for over 100 yards on the night, the class of 2018 running back scored a pair of touchdowns to get the Hawks one step closer to reaching the state playoffs.
Losing in the final seconds to Springboro on Friday, Myers’ night didn’t end the way he wanted, but the five-star offensive tackle still had an excellent game paving the way for the Vikings offense.
Coming up just short of picking up their six win of the season, 39-38, Miamisburg’s rushing attack was more than stellar in the loss. Thanks to Myers, and the other hogs upfront, the Vikings ball carriers racked up 366 yards on the ground.
