Ladies and gentlemen...football season is here! This means that high school football is starting to rev up across the country and future Nittany Lions are starting to kick off their high school football campaigns. It was a lighter schedule this week as states across the country slowly but surely begin to ease into high school football season, but, hey, we’ve still got football to talk about!

Quarterback commit Micah Bowens led national powerhouse Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas to a 40-7 season opening victory. In the victory Bowen was just 9/19 through the air, but he threw for 178 yards and a pair of scores. The dual threat QB also rushed for 41 yards.

Offensive lineman Nick Dawkins and the Parkland Trojans rolled over Northampton 49-14. The blocking of Dawkins helped pave the way for 397 rushing yards and 7 rushing touchdowns for the Trojans. He also spent plenty of time burying poor defenders into the ground.

Defensive tackle Fatorma Mulbah and the Susquehanna Township Indians fell to the Manheim Central Barons 16-7. Despite the loss, it was a good night for Mulbah.

Mulbah record a sack and a tackle for a loss. His disruptive presence on the defensive line helped hold Maheim Central to just 187 yards of total offense and 16 points.

Fellow defensive tackle commit Cole Brevard and the Carmel (IN) Greyhounds were defeated 41-14 by powerhouse Trinity High School out of Kentucky. In the loss, Brevard recorded 5 tackles.

National powerhouse DeMatha Catholic (MD) and Penn State commits Golden Israel-Achumba and Coziah Izzard were blown out 35-7 by St. John Bosco (CA) and one of the top 2021 quarterbacks in the country DJ Uiagalelei. Israel-Achumba, Izzard, and DeMatha will look to bounce back on Friday night against Imhotep Charter out of Philadelphia.
