Big night for UConn commit

It was a pretty successful day for future Huskies on Friday.

Four UConn commits played in state playoff games and three of their teams emerged victorious.

Leading the way was Nazir Williams who had a season-high 124 receiving yards including a 23-yard touchdown as Bridgeton rolled to a 42-0 win over Manasquan in the South Jersey Group 3 quarterfinals as Bridgeton won a home playoff game for the first time since 1999. Bridgeton will meet Delsea in the second round.

Fellow receiver Frank Battle wasn't nearly as busy but his Belen Jesuit team kept its state title hopes alive. Belen Jesuit only attempted two passes and did not complete either one but ran 41 times for 269 yards in a 20-7 win over Southridge in a Florida Region 4-8A quarterfinal.

Ian Campbell's Pequannock team rallied to beat Elmwood Park 21-20 in the North Jersey Section 1 Group 2 playoffs to set up a meeting with Waldwick on Friday.

The news wasn't all good as Connor Freeborn's Salesianum squad lost to Sussex Tech in the Delaware Division I quarterfinals.
