St. Francis junior tight end John Carroll is a rising prospect in the Class of 2015. Carroll was an integral part of the offense and a force along the defensive line for the 8-2 Golden Knights this season.
At 6'3 220, Carroll is the total package, an effective run blocker and a quarterback's best friend in the passing game with his big frame and solid hands.
In a battle of undefeated teams, the Serra Cavaliers proved to have too much fire power for St. Francis tonight. The Golden Knights fought to keep the game close and things were tied up 21-21 entering the fourth quarter. Boise State QB commit Jalen Greene changed that.
Greene took the ball on a quarterback draw and raced 50 yards up the gut to give the Cavaliers the lead 28-21 after the successful PAT.
Until that point, St. Francis had the Cavaliers on their heels.
The Valencia Vikings captured a share of their fifth straight Foothill League crown with a hard fought 24-19 victory over the previously unbeaten Hart Indians Friday night at the College of the Canyons.
The Vikings took the early lead on a 13-yard touchdown pass from senior Jake Wallace to junior Jay Jay Wilson that was set up by some big plays by senior Malik Townsend.
Hart quickly responded with a drive that was capped off with a short touchdown run by standout junior quarterback Brady White to tie the game 7-7.
Adoree' Jackson is arguably the best athlete in the nation. From The Opening in Oregon, to the 7v7 Nat'l Championship in Florida, we've been up close & personal and we've seen the best of the best in class of 2014. Adoree Jackson is the guy. The nation's leading high school long jumper as a junior, Jackson is one of the most dynamic athletes in the world.
Adoree' Jackson just got back from Norman, OK on Sunday after taking his first official visit. Jackson will line up tonight for Serra High School as they take on Harvard-Westlake and the Cavs look to come out with an unblemished record.
After the Cavs game, Jackson will head to Death Valley to attend the Florida vs LSU game, and if you know Adoree' then you know he's excited about the Tigers.
Jackson has let it be known since last season that LSU was one of the offers he was waiting patiently for.
In the Battle of the Bulldogs, Burbank cruised to a convincing 42-7 home league victory Thursday night over Pasadena. With the win, Burbank improves to 5-0 on the season heading into a big Pacific league showdown against Crescenta Valley next Friday.
The Bulldogs jumped out to the early lead on a short touchdown run by standout junior James Williams. In addition to the game-breaking Williams, Burbank features a stable of talented backs that include Joseph Pendleton and Tony Toledo.
Reigning Heisman trophy winner and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is well on his way to defending his throne after a dazzling first month in the 2013 college football season. Through five games, Johnny Football has thrown for 1489 yards and 14 touchdowns while connecting on 71 percent of his attempts for the Aggies. Manziel has also made an impact with his legs, rushing for 314 yards and three touchdowns.
Joe Mixon exploded last week for 6 total touchdowns against Castro Valley. The senior running back catapulted himself into the national recruiting conversation earlier this year and hasn't looked back since. After excellent performances at the U.S. Army All-American junior combine in San Antonio, TX, along with the spring 7on7 circuit and The Opening in Oregon, Mixon is arguably the top back in the country.
