The incredible senior season for wide receiver commit Parker Washington continued last Thursday. In a 48-7 victory for the Fort Bend Travis Tigers, the Texas standout hauled in 6 passes for 195 yards and 3 touchdowns.

It was also another big weekend for quarterback Micah Bowens. Helping to lead the Bishop Gorman Gaels to a 49-6 victory, Bowens was a perfect 7-for-7 for 246 yards and 4 touchdowns. On the season Bowens has completed 62% of his passes for 14 touchdowns and just 1 interception. He has also rushed for 209 yards and 3 scores.

In Florida, running back Caziah Holmes was held in check in a 36-22 victory for Cocoa High School. Holmes scored a touchdown, but rushed for just 40 yards. He also had 44 yards receiving on a pair of receptions.

Wide receiver Jaden Dottin had 4 receptions for 61 yards in a 35-17 victory for the Suffield Academy (CT) Tigers. Dottin also had 2 tackles, a pass break up and a 90-yard kick return.

In Paramus, New Jersey, future Nittany Lion defensive lineman Amin Vanover and the St. Joseph Regional Green Knights did battle with future Nittany Lion offensive lineman Devin Willock and the Paramus Catholic Paladins. Led by 4 tackles, 2 TFLs and 2 sacks from Vanover, the Green Knights picked up a 21-14 victory.

The Carmel, Indiana, Greyhounds and defensive tackle Cole Brevard fell to 4-3 on the season following a 27-14 loss against Ben Davis High School. Brevard finished with 5 tackles and a quarterback hurry.

Sticking with the defensive line, Ohio native Brandon Taylor has released his mid-season film. Taylor looks disruptive, he effectively overpowers opposing offensive lineman, he has good technique, and does a nice job of shedding blocks before reading and reacting.

Linebacker Curtis Jacobs has also released mid-season film. Jacobs is one of the top linebacker recruits in the country and the highest rated member of Penn State’s 2020 class. His film shows why. Jacobs has all the tools needed to be the next great linebacker at Linebacker U.

The aforementioned Willock also released his mid-season highlights. To his credit, Willock looks like a much better player than he did last season. He has identified what he needs to work on, and, thus far, he has done that.

2021 tight end Nick Elksnis had 2 receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown. He also had a tackle for a loss in the 56-0 victory for the Episcopal School of Jacksonville.

The Lackawanna Community College Falcons remained undefeated on the season following a 17-10 victory over ASA Brooklyn. Norval Black had 4 receptions for 150 yards and a touchdown, while safety Ji’Ayir Brown had a tackle and two pass break ups.

Brown also released his mid-season film. Yeah, he’s going to be a good one for Brent Pry and Tim Banks.
