Friday Night Lights Roundup: Weekend of 10/19

Here’s the Roundup’s weekly rundown of how Notre Dame’s committed players fared in their high school football games this weekend:

  • First things first: Cretin-Derham Hall (Minn.) wide receiver Michael Floyd, who committed to the Irish after his official visit this past weekend, scored three touchdowns within a brief span in the second quarter: an 11-yard run with 7:51 on the clock, a 68-yard reception at 6:02, and a 54-yard punt return less than two minutes later. He had 235 all-purpose yards on the day before leaving with five minutes to go in the third quarter with an apparently unserious ankle injury, and his team defeated Mounds View by a score of 42-7, to move their season record to 8-0 and clinch their conference championship. (As points out, the lead into this article is priceless: “Every time Cretin-Derham Hall’s Michael Floyd has the football, a collective gasp typically follows.”)
  • David Posluszny, back in the lineup after missing several games with a concussion, caught a 22-yard touchdown pass as his Hopewell (Pa.) team snapped a three-game losing streak and kept their Parkway Conference title hopes alive with a 47-7 victory over Moon. Hopewell is now 4-4 on the season.
  • Dayne Crist threw for 299 yards and four touchdowns as his and Anthony McDonald’s Sherman Oaks Notre Dame (Calif.) team defeated Chaminade 44-17, to move their season record to 5-1.
  • Brandon Newman’s Pleasure Ridge Park (Ky.) team fell to 3-6 on the season with a 35-7 loss to St. Xavier.
  • Joseph Fauria’s Crespi (Calif.) team had a slow day on offense but still pulled out a 13-0 win over St. Paul, to improve their season record to 5-2.
  • John Goodman threw for 156 yards as his Bishop Dwenger (Ind.) team opened the playoffs with a 42-7 victory over Elmhurst. Dwenger is unbeaten in ten contests so far this year.
  • Mike Golic Jr.’s Northwest Catholic (Conn.) team stunned previously unbeaten Berlin, 34-6, to move their record to 4-2 on the year.
  • Lane Clelland’s McDonogh (Md.) team improved to 4-3 on the year with a 33-15 defeat of Calvert Hall.
  • Ethan Johnson’s Lincoln (Ore.) team bumped their season record to 4-3 with a 48-20 win over Benson.
  • Robert Blanton’s Butler (N.C.) team rebounded from a tough loss last week to defeat South Mecklenburg, 19-16. Butler’s record on the season is now 7-2.
  • Braxston Cave’s Penn (Ind.) team stayed undefeated in ten contests on the season with a 28-14 victory over Elkhart Central in the first round of the sectional playoffs. They face Mishawaka next week.
  • Sean Cwynar’s Marian Central (Ill.) team defeated St. Francis, 30-21, and will head into the playoffs with a 7-2 record.
  • Steve Filer’s top-ranked Mount Carmel (Ill.) team stayed undefeated with a 56-6 victory over Hales. They head into the playoffs with a record of 9-0.
  • Darius Fleming’s St. Rita’s (Ill.) team rebounded from a tough loss last week and moved to 6-3 on the season with a 69-0 pasting of St. Francis de Sales.
  • Kyle Rudolph had five catches for 120 yards and three touchdowns as his Elder (Ohio) team defeated Benedictine, 49-34. Elder’s record on the year is 6-3.
  • Dan McCarthy had an interception and a pass break-up as his Cardinal Mooney (Ohio) team moved their season record to a perfect 9-0 and clinched their conference title with a 37-14 victory over Ursuline (photos here).
  • Omar Hunter and his Buford (Ga.) defense continued their season-long dominance with a 56-0 victory over Walker that was already a 28-0 game at the end of the first quarter. Buford is 8-0 on the year and has allowed more than a touchdown only once.
  • Hafis Williams’s Elizabeth (N.J.) defense gave up a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns as they fell to Westfield, 13-7, to drop to 3-3 on the year.
  • Jamoris Slaughter’s Tucker (Ga.) team kept their season record perfect at 7-0 with a 21-14 overtime victory over Washington.

… and there you have it! Good luck to all of our committed players as they wrap up their seasons and/or prepare for the playoffs.
