Commits in Action
A couple commits met in a cross town battle and the Boss was in town, Hoke, along side DL coach Jerry Montgomery. The result was not an indication of how lopsided this rivalry has been in recent years past. I am talking about Pickerington Central (OH), who has won the last 4 meetings, vs. Pickerington North (OH). TE Jake Butt (9 catches, 92 yards, 2 TD's, 6 tackles, 1 sack) was on the winning side as Pickerington North shutout DL Taco Charlton (who had at least 8 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks) and Pickerington Centra 37-0. Chantel Jennings of WolverineNation caught up with Butt, who is not shy in showing how big of a win this was for him and his team (along with a few highlights).
S Dymonte Thomas could very well turn into (crazy prediction alert!) the next Charles Woodson. His stats this year are unreal on both sides of the ball. Friday, he only added to the impressive numbers: 25 carries, 249 yards, 1 INT, and 10 tackles. Just a freak athlete!
DB Channing Stribling continues to prove the hata's wrong. His stock will be on the rise when the next rankings are updated, belie dat (Martin Lawrence voice). Stribling had another solid Friday night with 3 tackles, a pick 6, 43 yards receiving and 87 punt return yards.
TE Khalid Hill had as many TD's as he did catches: 2 totaling 50 yards. Pretty efficient if you ask me.
FB Wyatt Shallman showed off his versatility this week, dominating from the DL (!!!!) position. Doesn't seem like a kid with his size would be effective, but look at these stats: 6 tackles, 1 sack, and an INT. Not to shabby for an offensive commit eh?
'14 LB Michael Ferns and St. Clairsville improved to 6-0 on the season.
Prospects in Action
RB Derrick Green only had to play the first half for his Hermitage sqaud on Friday. That doesn't mean he didn't put up a game's worth of stats: 142 yards rushing, 50 yard reception, and 2 TD's.
WR LaQuon Treadwell, who was visited by WR coach Hecklinski on Thursday, was his usual self on Saturday afternoon, tallying 7 catches and 3 TD's. Crete-Monee (IL) cruised to a 41-6 victory over Bloom (IL). In the latest edition of Rival's Recruiting Roundtable, Treadwell is labeled as being the top performer in the Midwest area up to this point in the season by Josh Helmholdt:
"The best player I have seen in 20-plus games covered this year has been Crete-Monee (Ill.) wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, already rated as the No. 1 wide receiver prospect in the nation. We loved what we saw out of Treadwell at events like the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge, The Opening and Gridiron Kings, but he may have been even more impressive the night I covered him and he caught seven passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns."
S Leon McQuay III had 2 picks with one sealing his team's victory.

If this means anything, present or future, at least we know he won't drop any passes during the games he has these on, but let's hope it's a good sign for the future.
'14 ATH Jabrill Peppers scored 4 TD's in his team's 42-10 win on Friday, improving to 4-0 on the season. Here's a shot of one of those TD's, (beware of heavy traffic):

'14 WR Derek Kief had yet another double digit catch game, 12 to be exact for 161 yards and 1 TD. But his performance wasn't enough to pull in a victory as his team fell to Moeller (OH) 37-22.
'15 RB Damien Harris tore apart another defense rushing for 214 yards, but only 5 (!!!) TD's, I guess that's good.
