Three UConn commits in playoff action this week

While it is a bye week for the UConn football team, three future Huskies be taking part in state playoffs this weekend.

Eddie Hahn's Red Bank Catholic squad is the No. 5 seed in New Jersey's Non-Public Group 3 bracket and will play at No. 4 seed Pope John XXIII on Saturday at 1 p.m. in the opening round.
Hahn has completed 61 percent of his passes for 1,531 yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions while running for 409 yards and four TDs.

Quayvon Skanes' Phillips High team has already won two games in the Illinois Class 4 playoffs and will play Geneseo on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the quarterfinals. Finding statistics for Skanes even on a game by game basis has been a bit of a struggle but the Chicago Sun-Times did have Skanes on its player of the year watch list and heading into last week's playoff win over Johnsburg Skanes has run for 908 yards and 15 touchdowns, has thrown nine touchdowns and caught a pair of TD passes.

Donovan Williams' Hylton High team will host Forest Park tonight at 7 in the first round of Virginia's Group 6A playoffs. Hylton ended the regular season with a 52-0 win over Forest Park.
Williams has completed 58 percent of his passes for 1,247 yards with 17 touchdown passes and only one interception. He also had 545 rushing yards with six touchdowns.

You'll have to subscribe but both the Phillips and Hylton games are being live streamed on the NFHS site. This is the link to the Phillips/Geneseo game and for the Hylton/Forest Park contest.

Also, Nino Leone and Tahj Herring will play the final home regular-season games for Pingree and Suffield Academy respectively as Pingree hosts Dexter on Saturday at noon and Suffield Academy plays Loomis Chaffee on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. This weekend is also the final regular-season home games for Keyion Dixon of Glastonbury as Glastonbury hosts Simsbury tonight at 6:30.
