Liam Clifford continues to prove he is much more than Sean Clifford’s little brother, while also proving that he should be a consensus four-star recruit. Friday night he continued what has been a stellar senior season for the St. Xavier (OH) Bombers by hauling in 12 passes for 300 yards and 2 touchdowns. Clifford’s 300 receiving yards were a new school single game record, as is the 316 all purpose yards he had in the game.
Liam Clifford -- 300 yards receiving, 2 TD's today!— Jeremy Rauch (@FOX19Jeremy) October 4, 2020
That's up there for an all-time performance in OHSAA history for the Penn State commit.
We'll show the full highlights at 10:45 on @fox19 @stxsports @liamcliff7 @StXFB pic.twitter.com/ZO80tU69VU
Clifford now has 43 receptions for 702 yards and 6 touchdowns through six games played this fall.
Staying with 2021 commits who should be consensus four-star prospects, defensive end Rodney McGraw helped lead the Elkhart (IN) Lions to a 6-0 record with a 51-0 victory. In the win, McGraw recorded 4 tackles and 2 tackles for a loss. He now has 6.5 sacks and 14.5 TFLs this fall.
Kicker Sander Sahaydak and the Liberty Hurricanes, no pun intended, kicked off their 2020 season on Friday night with a 30-7 loss agaisnt Easton Area. In the loss, Sahaydak was successful on his lone extra point attempt and he had a 54-yard field goal attempt blocked.
In the state of Michigan, cornerback Kalen King and his twin brother linebacker Kobe King helped lead Cass Tech to a 4-0 record with a 47-7 victory. Kalen had an interception and a touchdown catch in the game. You can check out each of their highlights from the game below.
While it can be difficult to take too much away from short clips like these, it was great to see Kalen track the ball and go up and get it on his interception. As for Kobe, he continues to be a physical player with a great nose for the football while playing linebacker.
2022 quarterback commit Beau Pribula continued his strong start to the season for York Central on Friday night. Pribula was 12-for-17 for 144 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also added a pair of rushing touchdowns, to give him five touchdowns for a the third time in as many games this season.
Tight end Holden Staes ahd the best game of his young season on Friday night. In a 27-24 victory for the Westminster (GA) WIldcats, Staes hauled in a pair of touchdown passes while also going over 100 yards receiving.
In the state of Ohio, Westerville South won their game via forfeit. So, sadly, we were robbed of Kaden Saunders doing Kaden Saunders things and terrorizing opposing defenses this past weekend.
