2015 IHSA Week1 Summary

llinois High School Football Week 1 Summary

August 28, 2015

week1 MATTESON – From the private sector of Chicago to the far reaching burbs of Kankakee and everywhere in between, variations on offensive and defensive brands of football highlight the diversity of the game. And well, it’s F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L time which brings about Friday Night Lights.

TEAMS & PLAYERS TO WATCH
Players-to-watch1

In short, in our coverage area, Homewood-Flossmoor is the best – point blank period. The Vikings return 17 starters from the last year’s team that lost to Stevenson 31-25 in the Class 8A title game. Virtually every key member of the offense is back including the wonder-twin power of Deante & Devonte Harley-Hampton.

statefarm1

“We have talent but there are a lot of teams that have talent,” Homewood-Flossmoor coach Craig Buzea said. “Some with equal, some with more than us. Success has to do with how they play and the passion they play with. This group of seniors has been together a long time. They respect each other and they hold each other accountable.”

 

Looks like it’s definitely the Vikings to lose in the IHSA Class 8A…

Week 1 Game Summary

football_icon_small1 Malvern (Pa.) 37,  St. Rita 0

Malvern, a high school from Pennsylvania, hit for seven plays of 20 yards or more and piled up a total of 524 yards in rolling to a 37-0 win over the Mustangs at Soldier Field.

The Mustangs, though, were burned by the big play far too often.

Malvern junior quarterback Nick Maras had a field day, completing 17 of 21 passes for 349 yards and three touchdowns, of which, 13-for-15 for 212 yards and two touchdowns in the first half.

“We just had everything clicking,” Maras said. “Our receivers and running backs came out and played a great game.”

Click here to see the FIRST touchdown in the contest!

Malvern led 20-0 at halftime as Maras threw touchdown passes of 2 yards to Ian Murray and 29 yards to Mike Fay. Maras’ 18-yard strike to Murray got the Friars down to the 1 to set up a TD run from Zac Fernandez (12 carries, 64 yards).

Be sure to watch this nice 67-yard catch and run for a TOUCHDOWN click here3

St. Rita was held to 65 yards of total offense and only two first downs, including Brandon Williams, who ran 12 times for 29 yards in the loss.

On a bright note, Thomas Stacker recorded was able to get to the quarterback.

“We played a good game up front and our linebackers did a good job,” said Stacker, a senior defensive lineman. “We just had a lot of communication mistakes. We’d get them in third-and-long and they’d break a big run or hit a big screen for a lot of yards. It’s a lot of stuff we can fix.”

“It was definitely fun playing at Soldier Field, even though the game didn’t go how we wanted.”

Stacker hopes the Mustangs will have things turned around by then.

Just too much speed

The Vikings scored five touchdowns on their first 10 plays en route to a 56-15 thrashing.
Senior quarterback Bryce Gray completed his first five passes, two of which went for touchdowns. His lone lowlight was an intentional grounding play late in the second quarter. He made up for it on the next play, connecting with Kendric Pryor for a 35-yard score and a 42-9 halftime lead.

“It doesn’t make any difference who we play, we’re going to play our game. And if we play our game and execute the way we should, it should be like this all time,” said Gray, who finished 8-for-10 for 338 yards and four TDs. “I just trust my guys. We’re a veteran team. We’ve been through it all.”

Mr. Gray finished the contest going 8-for-10 passing, 338 yards, 4 TDs.

H-F scored on its opening possession on a 31-yard run up the middle from Deante Harley-Hampton (four carries, 48 yards), then scored four times on its next six plays, including TD passes of 68 and 28 yards from Gray. Not to be out-done, twin Devonte, had  2 catches for 137 yards including a 66-yard TD.

Johnson finished with 18 carries, 204 yards, 2 TDS including a 77-yard TD catch

Building Men and Women via Athletics…

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Rich Central 42, Rich South 0

The Southland cross-town classic started with lots of tensions, but NOT on the field, as police presence was VERY visible at the stadium due to past tensions between the schools. On the field… no tension as the Olympians handled the Stars in a shutout.

Quarterback DaQuan Richie ran 12 yards for a touchdown and also threw a 60-yard scoring pass to DeQuan Dudley to lift visiting Rich Central (3-1) in the Southland opener for both teams. Rich South just couldn’t get anything going during the contest and fell to 1-3.

Rich East 40, Gary Roosevelt (Ind.) 6

The Rockets red glare went bursting in the air on Saturday afternoon as Rich East knock off Panthers 40-6 as thunderstorms rolled in. The first Rockets’ TD was set up by a blocked Roosevelt punt. B.J. Stewart scored from 4 yards out for East and then scored again with a 48-yarder on the next possession.

“It was a good victory for us. We came out and executed a few things well,” said Rich East coach Barry Reade, who also got two TDs each from Marcel McDonald and Kendall Miller. “We ran the ball well and got a few turnovers on defense. We did what we came here to do, which is win [going] interconference play next week.”

Defensively, Rich East (4-0) held Roosevelt to only 56 yards and two first downs in the two quarters. The first came with 3:15 left in the half, the second produced a 15-yard passing TD for Roosevelt (1-3), with Young hitting Ronald White Jr.

Loyola 42, Fenwick 0

Loyola (3-1) scored on its first two possessions, both scores set up with the run, to race out to an early 14-0 and NEVER locked back. Junior Dara Laja gained 29 yards on his first carry and finished with 135 of his game-best 147 yards in the first half. On the Ramblers’ second series, they ran the ball all 10 plays, with senior Cal Falkenhayn scoring from one yard out. Laja carried the ball seven consecutive times for 70 yards on the drive

Friday, September 19, 2014

St. Rita 23, Mount Carmel 21

Crosstown rivalry like none other as the Mustangs grabbed the lead early but fault back against the Caravan winning 23-21 in front of a jammed pack stadium Friday night.

Things got started with an acrobatic 43-yard touchdown catch by Lee from a pass from C.J. Weydeman to go up 7-0. Then they struck again with a little more than 8 minutes in the second on a Brandon Gaston 25-yard TD pass to Dion Bobo.

St Rita had a 14-0 lead, but you know the Caravan were going to adjust and make a run which including three lead changes in the final 6 minutes of the game.

They got on the board with a 1-yard touchdown run by A.J. Lewis, who finished with 17 carries, 83 yards, with 14.9 seconds left in the first half. Anthony Ries tied it at 14 with a 4-yard scoring run at 5:18 of the third quarter. And they took the lead on a 5-yard TD pass from Anthony Thompson (6 of 12, 74 yards) to Demetrius Lewis with 2:01 remaining.

But when the Mustangs kicker Bailey Marth, who missed an extra point after St. Rita’s go-ahead touchdown with under six minutes to go, but he redeemed himself with just 23.1 seconds left to play by kicking the winning field goal from  about 30 yards out.

Mustangs quarterback Weydeman completed 12 of 29 passes for 194 yards, including that touchdown pass to Lee. And Gaston threw a touchdown pass in the first half before running for the go-ahead score at 5:55 of the fourth.

“We were fine,” Gaston said of Mount Carmel’s comeback. “It was just our team chemistry was off a little bit. We’re all brothers. We all will come together in the end to make it up.”

The Caravan had one last chance, but ran out of time at the St. Rita 39. This is the first time they are 1-3 under coach Frank Lenti’s tenure.

“We did everything we possibly could do wrong in the first half,” Lenti said. “You’ve got to say our kids showed a lot of character coming back from 14-0 down and taking the lead in the last few minutes.”

A bright spot is Mount Carmel’s (1-3, 0-2) defense held St. Rita’s Tyre Lee — who was coming off back-to-back 200-yard rushing games against Dunbar and Montini — to 48 yards on 17 carries.

And if you thought St. Rita used everything in the playbook Friday night, wide receiver Gaston has some news.

“We’ve still got a couple more up our sleeve,” Gaston said after throwing for one touchdown and running for another in a stirring 23-21 Catholic League Blue home win over Mount Carmel.

Richards 46, Oak Lawn 21

Who throws a screen on third and long (22)? The Bulldogs…. as they executed the perfect screen from Hasan Muhammad-Rogers to Pat Doyle turned into a 65-yard touchdown and a 26-0 lead. Richards went on to post a 46-21 South Suburban Red road win over Oak Lawn on Friday.

“I thought we played a good first half, did a lot of good things, then got complacent,” Richards coach Tony Sheehan said. “We have to learn to put the hammer down.”

Muhammad-Rogers completed 14-of-21 passes for 273 yards.

2013 GIRLS BASKETBALL ALL-AREA TEAMS

Posted on March 5, 2013. Filed under: Basketball, Girls High School Basketball, High School Basketball | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Best of the Best Girls in our coverage…

March 4, 2013

The Associated Press released its Class 3A and Class 4A All-State teams last Wednesday. There were some surprises to say the least. When a bunch of voters based in different areas of the state are unable to see several teams and players, the final selections can be somewhat head-scratching. One notable surprise came from our coverage area, in which Hillcrest senior, Dana Gettis, was NOT named to Class 3A first or second team. Gettis did everything for Hillcrest this season – she averaged 20.2 points, 5.9 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists in her senior year. You won’t find many players in the state with her numbers.

Then you have Morgan Park and Rich South, who didn’t have a single member on the all-state teams. In addition, Joliet Catholic freshman Nicole Ekhomu joined Gettis as an honorable mention pick. Ekhomu’s career should be filled with many awards and accomplishments.

But as we know, voting isn’t an inexact science that produces a wide range of results. Well, we tried to go through our coverage area with a magnifying glass… Whew, this is what we came up with…

https://i1.wp.com/www.amateursports365.com/images/RobinsonRibs-MAIN.jpg

Here is our All-Area Amateur Sports Team (alpha order):

FIRST TEAM
Leah Bolton, Marist, (Sr.)

Kennedy Cattenhead, Bolingbrook, (Sr.)

Nicole Ekhomu, Joliet Catholic (Fr.)

Dana Gettis, Hillcrest, (Sr.)

Bria Gaines, Bloom (Sr.)

Linnae Harper, Young (Sr.)

Jasmine Lumpkin, Joliet Catholic (Jr.)

Ashton Millender, Marian Catholic, (Jr.)

Teniya Page, Marian Catholic, (So.)

Who’s our 2012 Illinois High School Number 1 football team?

August 20, 2012

The age old question is asked about Illinois High School Football and answered by our team….

This time of the year many people are curious about which high school football team is the best in Illinois. While we have seen many of the teams in our coverage area, I have not seen some of the other statewide contenders. However, like anyone, we can certainly offer an opinion on the teams we have seen, read about and are familiar with so far this year.

NOTE: This is based on our coverage area.

10. Thornton
Impact Player: Jalen Banks is actually one of the most experienced players in the state, having played varsity football since he arrived at Thornton as a freshman in 2009.
Biggest Issue for 2012: Battled test – but can they play together against steep competition?

9. Lemont
Impact Player: OT Ethan Pocic
Biggest Issue for 2012? Can the inexperienced offensive skills develop fast enough.

8. Crete
Impact Player: WR LaQuon Treadwell
Biggest Issue for 2012? Outside of the Southland, can they standup in the Class 6A playoffs?

7. Marist
Impact Player: TE Nic Weishar
Biggest Issue for 2012: Can anyone standup on defense?

6. Lincoln-Way East
Impact Player: QB Tommy Fuessel
Biggest Issue for 2012? Moving into 2012 season strong – leaving the 2011 season in the past.

5. St Rita
Impact Player (s): Offensive line
Biggest Issue for 2012?
Steady play at QB1.

For the remaining  TOP 4 teams….
