Player Performances

Dwayne Haskins (4 star QB, Potomac MD) went 23-for-40 (57.5% completion percentage) for 271 yards and threw 1 TD in a 35-21 loss to No. 10 Mount Saint Joseph. Haskins' Bullis team never led in the game and only once was tied with the No. 10 ranked Gaels, 14-14 for thirteen seconds in the 1st Quarter before a kick return TD gave Mount Saint Joseph a lead they would not relinquish for the rest of the game.

Keandre Jones (4 star OLB, Olney MD) and Travon Stott's (3 star CB) Good Counsel team lost 36-29 to No. 1 Gilman in OT. Good Counsel came back from 22-0 down after a QB change, but weren't able to complete the comeback in OT when Gilman scored the go-ahead TD and then held on defense for the win.

Tino Ellis (4 star WR, Hyattsville MD) and Lorenzo Harrison (3 star RB) helped DeMatha to a 23-22 win over No. 19 American Heritage from Plantation, Fla. Harrison had a couple of nice runs in the wild win, which saw DeMatha jump out to a 16-3 half time lead and a lead of 23-9 late in the game before Heritage scored two late TD's, including one 45 yard TD run with 53 seconds remaining. They would miss the PAT though, and DeMatha got the W. D.J. Turner (3 star WR) was obviously not involved due to the season ending injury he suffered a week ago.

Parnell Motley (3 star WR, Washington DC) had an 89 yard kickoff return TD in H.D. Woodson's 49-21 loss to St. Mary's Ryken. Motley's return was on the opening kickoff of the game, putting his team up 7-0. But by the second quarter they were trailing 28-13 and Ryken strolled to an easy win.

Tyrone Hill (3 star CB, Ramsey NJ) and Don Brosco Prep lost 17-7 to Saint Joseph.

Wallace has offers from Vanderbilt, Houston, and Oklahoma State. A few Big 12 schools such as TCU, Oklahoma, and Texas have interest but have yet to offer. 247 page here.
