Big win for UConn commit

UConn commit Luke Carrezola recorded his eighth sack of the season as Neshaminy rolled to a 42-7 win over North Penn in the District 1 AAAA championship game.

Carrezola finished with four tackles in the win. He has 53 tackles and 19 tackles for loss as a senior.

Neshaminy ran for 329 yards and will St. Joseph's Prep in the AAAA semifinals on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Philadelphia's Northeast High School. Pittsburgh Central Catholic and Lower Dauphin meet in the other semifinals, which is also Saturday at 1.

Closer to home, UConn commit Arkeel Newsome led Ansonia to the No. 2 seed in the CIAC Class S playoffs. Ansonia will host Coginchaug in the Class S quarterfinals on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

Newsome ran for a career-high 406 yards and seven touchdowns in Thursday's 66-28 win over Naugatuck giving him 2,863 yards and 48 TD runs and 52 overall touchdowns for the 12-0 Chargers. Newsome has 9,681 career rushing yards heading into the playoffs. He passed four players including Minnesota Vikings running back Toby Gerhart to move into the seventh place on the national list according to the national high school football record book.

If Ansonia wins, it would play the winner of the Rocky Hill/Prince Tech game in Saturday's semifinals.

A third UConn commit is in playoff action as well. Offensive lineman Lamont Bradford leads Timber Creek (N.J.) Regional against Shawnee in New Jersey's South Group 4 title game on Saturday at Rowan University.
