Friday night, future Penn State quarterback Beau Pribula and the Central York Panthers kicked off their season with a 55-0 victory over the Red Lion Lions. Helping to break in a new spread offense, Pribula was one of the top performers in the state of Pennsylvania this past weekend.

The future Nittany Lion signal caller was 10/15 with 5 touchdowns for the Panthers in their season opener. This came after Pribula threw just 8 touchdowns all of last season. It is safe to say he will like Central York’s new offense.

Staying in the 2022 class, wide receiver Kaden Saunders and the Westerville South (OH) Wildcats improved to 4-0 on the season with a 59-20 victory. Saunders had another big game hauling in 6 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown. He also added a 42-yard rush.

In the class of 2021, a trio of Penn State commits shared the field this past Friday. This was in the state of Michigan where Kalen King and Kobe King led Cass Tech against Martin Luther King High School and Jaylen Reed. The King Twins and Cass Tech were the ones who walked away victorious, by a score of 34-26.

Kalen King finished with 191 yards receiving and 3 scores, while Kobe rushed for 56 yards and a score. For MLK, Reed was able to find the end zone as well. Reed also had a pass breakup and a TFL. You can checkout some of the highlights belows.

In the state of Indiana, defensive end Rodney McGraw and the Elkhart Lions remained undefeated with a 20-19 victory over Penn High School. McGraw had 5 tackles and half a sack for the now 4-0 Lions in the victory.

Newly minted four-star wide receiver commit Liam Clifford continued the strong start to his senior campaign on Friday night. In a 25-22 loss for St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati, Clifford had 8 receptions for 119 yards and two scores.

Clifford continues to prove he was worth his recent ratings bump. Hell, if anything, he just continues to show that he is still underrated.
