3 UConn commits in action tomorrow

While UConn will be wrapping up its 2013 season, three players currently committed to UConn will be playing in the state playoffs.

Offensive lineman Lamont Bradford's Timber Creek of Erial, N.J. squad plays Shawnee in the New Jersey South Group 4 title game at 7:30 p.m. at Rowan University. Timber Creek is 10-1 and is averaging 312 passing yards and 142 rushing yards per game.

Luke Carrezola's Neshaminy High out of Langhorne, Pa. team plays St. Joseph's Prep at 3 p.m. in the Pennsylvania Class AAAA semifinals.

Carrezola, a senior defensive end, has 53 tackles, eight sacks and 19 tackles for losses for 13-1 Neshaminy.

Arkeel Newsome leads Ansonia against Rocky Hill in the Class S semifinals at 2 p.m. at Sheehan High School.

Newsome ran for a career-high 492 yards along with seven touchdown as Ansonia defeated Coginchag 49-21 in the Class S quarterfinals. Newsome now has rushed 264 times for 3,350 yards and 55 rushing touchdowns.

Newsome has run for 10,168 yards in his career which is currently No. 7 in the NFHS national record book. He needs 74 yards to move by former Jamestown (N.C.) Regional star Toney Baker for the No. 6 spot but would need to average 361 yards in the semifinals and finals to move into the top five.
