There was no shortage of great performances by Oklahoma State commits this weekend. Let's get right to it.
QB Mason Rudolph turned in a monster game Friday night, leading Northwestern to a 45-15 beat down over York. Rudolph was 23 for 38 passing with a season best 415 yards, accounting for 4 passing touchdowns and rushing for another score. The match-up featured two unbeaten teams in class 4A.
WR Chris Lacy was solid again, as Desoto clinched a 7-5A playoff spot defeating Duncanville 55-29. Lacy lead the Desoto receiving corp with 8 catches 210 yards and 3 touchdowns, including a 40 yard strike.
APB Tyreek Hill and the Garden City Broncbusters suffered a crushing 37-34 double overtime loss Saturday against the Coffeyville Red Ravens. Hill was a bright spot for the Garden City offense catching 6 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown, including a 65 yard reception for a score. Hill added 47 yards on the ground. Saturday marked the final game for Tyreek, who will now turn his attention toward the Cowboys next semester.
WR Keenen Brown racked up 8 receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown while CB Chris Hardeman and the Alief Taylor defense shut out Aldine 47-0. Be sure to check out the excellent Film Study on Brown by Graham Coffelt.
RB Devon Thomas and the Broken Arrow Tigers took care of business Friday night defeating Tulsa Edison 70-21. Thomas carried the ball 12 times for 99 yards, but yet another big run this season was negated by a holding penalty on the opposite side of the play. LB Gyasi Akem finished with 7 tackles, including 4 solo and 1 assisted for a loss.
OL Lemaefe Galea'i helped the Euless Trinity rush for a ridiculous 435 yards rushing on 37 attempts (11.7 yards per carry). Trinity beat Grapevine 56-9
DE Jordan Brailford had a big hand in helping the Booker T. Washington defense shut out Ponca City 51-0. Brailford is expected to play defensive end at OSU, but is being used as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 scheme at Booker T. which is giving him a diverse roll of rushing the quarterback and dropping back into coverage.
DT Jeremiah Ledbetter was a part of a thrilling 6 overtime game Saturday night. Unfortunately, Huchinson Community College came up short against Butler County 19-16. Ledbetter had 7 tackles in the loss.
ATH Ramon Richards was 13-15 passing for 236 yards and 2 touchdowns, as Brackenridge defeated Burbank 26-21. Richards also added a rushing touchdown in the victory. Richards had a 63 yard touchdown pass and a 5 yard TD run in the first quarter.
DE Cole Walterscheid was a standout on defense, filling the stat sheet with 8 tackles, 2 sacks, and forced a fumble. Muenster defeated Munday 50-19. Waltersheid also had a QB hurry and a pass breakup.
CB Juwan Offray had an interception as Edna Karr beat Belle Chasse 35-14. Offray also limited Belle Chasse's best receiver and Tulane commit Terren Encalade most of the night.
LB Justin Phillips and the Pearland defense scored three defensive touchdowns and limited Pasadena Memorial to 50 total yards in a 52-6 lopsided victory.
CB Dylan Harding and the Jenks Trojans continued to roll in an easy 56-14 win over.
