Weekend Prospect Review: Week Ten

DeAnthony Thomas

A City clash turns lopsided and UCLA's committed quarterback has his prep career close in Week Ten action of the prep football season...

Game of the Week: Crenshaw def. Dorsey, 53-12
Dorsey's 9-0 record was the rage before the game, but the defending City Champions didn't even let Dorsey have a punchers' chance in this one, jumping out to a 34-0 lead after a quarter and cruising to a blowout win and their fourth straight Coliseum League title and 24th straight league game.  DeAnthony Thomas, the West's top prospect, showed why he's so highly regarded with 171 yards of total offense on 13 touches and four touchdowns, while Shaq Shelton went for over 100 yards and two touchdowns.  Washington commit Joseph Gray had a rough night at quarterback for the Dons, starting off 3-for-21 in the loss.

Norco def. Corona, 21-14
Norco's Kelsey Young was limited in coming back from an ankle injury so 2013 running back Joseph Ajeigbe did the work, rushing for 131 yards on 10 carries and scoring a touchdown, many of those runs coming off of blocks from Brent Walker, the UCLA target on the line.  A Corona defense, led by Drew James, the younger brother of Jordon James, limited Young to 47 yards on 14 carries.

Crespi def. Notre Dame, 34-28
In one of the wildest endings to a prep game in a long time, Crespi scored on a 66-yard play, (WATCH HERE), when Kenneth Stenhouse threw a short pass to Michael Davidson who hit Terry Washington on a lateral, and he ran it into the end zone as time was expiring to give the Celts a come-from-behind win over the Knights.  Crespi scored the final 27 points of the game, after being down 28-7.  UCLA target Devin Lucien was kept out of the end zone but made a key block on the winning touchdown.

Serra def. Cathedral, 53-10
The Cavs won their 25th straight and kept their state championship hopes alive, knocking off the Phantoms by 43.  Cathedral, led by 2013 quarterback Hayden Rettig, had a rough night, particularly Rettig, who was intercepted five times.  Elite 2011 prospect Marqise Lee had five catches for 105 yards, two going for touchdowns, George Farmer had a 62-yard punt return for a touchdown and Shaq Richard ran for 133 yards and a touchdown.

Stockton Lincoln def. El Dorado Hills Oak Ridge, 37-35
In another wild game, that took two days, Lincoln topped Oak Ridge in the first round of the CIF-SacJoaquin Section.  The game was postponed at halftime because of a power outage, so the game resumed the following day.  UCLA commit Brandin Cooks had the first reception of the game and the final one.  His last one was the most important, putting it inside the 1-yard line and allowing Lincoln to score with 14.2 seconds left and keep their section title hopes alive.  Cooks finished with eight receptions for 170 yards and three touchdowns, with five receptions for 125 and two touchdowns coming Friday and three receptions for 45 yards and a score coming on Saturday.

Mesa Desert Ridge def. Chandler, 38-35
UCLA's committed quarterback, Brett Hundley, had his high school career come to an end when the Wolves lost 38-35, after having a 35-24 lead in the fourth quarter.  In his final game, Hundley threw three touchdowns passes and ran for another, but instead of having a chance to win the game in the final minutes, the coaches called for him to hand it off, and they were stopped on a 4th and 1 from the five, that ended it.

Other UCLA Commits in Action
Los Alamitos and UCLA commit Ben Wysocki beat Huntington Beach Edison, 26-21 to win the Sunset League title.  Rancho Bernardo and Aaron Wallace topped Poway, 28-3.    Arvada West and Marc Mustoe fell to Rangeview, 35-28.  Plano East and center Jacob Brendel have completed their season.  Modesto Christian and tight end Raymond Nelson have completed their season.

Other UCLA Offerees in Action
Moreno Valley Rancho Verde and tight end Junior Pomee beat Riverside Arlington, 28-16.  Christian Heyward and Point Loma beat San Diego Hoover, 49-6.  Vista and UCLA recruit Stefan McClure beat Fallbrook, 37-3.  Fontana Summit and Devon Blackmon beat Riverside Norte Vista, 30-0.
