Friday Night Highlights: Costello’s High School Career Comes To An End

Costello is done, Ross, Player, Waltersheid and more gear up for playoffs and Boomer and Jones both advance in Oklahoma state playoffs.

St. John Bosco did St. John Bosco things to end Costello’s high school career, Ross and Farrar nearly got a first round playoff matchup against each other and more. The football season is officially winding down and playoffs are kicking in to high gear. Here’s your weekly recruit update!

Brendan Costello, Quarterback

San Clemente’s season came to an end last Friday at the hands of a 56-6 drubbing from St. John Bosco, the top ranked high school team in America. The Tritons didn’t enter stats from this game, but they were able to ruin the Braves shutout with a 17-yard touchdown strike as time expired. While it probably wasn’t the ending that Costello wanted, he did get to end his high school career by throwing a touchdown pass. Welcome home Cowboy!

Just check out Costello’s playoff road

Xavier Ross, Defensive Tackle

Cedar Hill won the “Battle of Belt Line” 32-17 against rival DeSoto last week to secure the District 7-6A title.

The Longhorns will face Richardson Pearce in the first round of the playoffs this week.
