Mixed results for UConn recruits
Both Pennsylvania commits kept their hopes for a state title alive.
Quinn Thompson ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns to lead General McLane to a 46-42 win over Slippery Rock in a District 10 Class AAA semifinal. Meanwhile, linebacker Junior Joseph led an impressive defensive effort in Wilson High's 35-10 win over Central York in the District 3-AAAA quarterfinal.
The season continues for offensive lineman Kyle Schafenacker and St. Thomas Aquinas of Ft. Lauderdale rolled to a 42-7 win over Miami Beach (which I believe was the exact score predicted in the Miami Herald yesterday) to set up a Florida Class 7A showdown with Plantation.
The news wasn't as good for the other three future Huskies in action.
Josh Marriner, a 2,000-yard rusher and the Hampton Roads All-Southeastern District Offensive Player of the Year, saw his brilliant senior season end with a 47-20 loss to Ocean Lakes in Virginia's Eastern Regional semifinal. Marriner ran for 84 yards to give him 2,145 rushing yards and 26 TDs.
Plano (Tex.) quarterback Richard Lagow saw his high school football career come to an end with a 35-14 loss to Skyline while Cory Jasudowich and Cheshire Academy lost to Governor's Academy 42-28 in the Tom Flaherty Bowl at Worcester Academy.
