Here's the weekly wrapup of how our Football commits played.
Ramon Diaz: [Morris Community HS, Morris, IL]
Diaz' Redskins are still in the hunt for the 5A championship - they advanced over the weekend, rolling up Pontiac 32-7 on the rushing of junior John Dergo behind Diaz' and his fellow O-Linemen.
How good is that line?
Dergo averaged 8.4 yards per carry [321 yards on 38 carries]. Backup Matt Perry averaged 12.2 ypc [5 for 61] and the QB, Zach Jones had 21 yards on 4 carries for Morris. That works out to 8.57 ypc for the team.
That is some kind of O-Line down in Morris
QB Eric Peterman: [Sacred Heart Griffin Cyclones, Springfield, ILThe 2nd time was their downfall as Sacred Heard lost to Jacksonville 21-14.
The Cyclones had 4 turnovers and 3 TDs called back on penalties including 2 scores on their final drive.
Eric Peterman was held down this time - he was 9 of 23 for only 159 yards and one TD. His last try at 4th and goal was just out of reach and the Cyclones were headed home with a 10-1 season record. It was the first time all year they scored less than 40 points.
The loss also ends the chance that two of NU's commits would face each other in the state playoffs - Morris and SH-G were in the same bracket and were seeded 1-2 at the start of the playoffs.
RB/DB Tyrell Sutton: [Archbishop Hoban Knights - Akron OH]
It was another close call for the Hoban Knights -- and the guy who lost the most was the other team's tailback.
Sutton's scoring was the difference - he had 4 more TDs, rushing for 181 yards on 30 carries - but it was the Hoban defense that stepped up and shut down a 2 point extra point play to give the Knights a 35-33 win.Two of our commits finished their seasons in October -
Sutton also showed some razzle dazzle - he tossed a 15 yard halfback option pass to give him a part in all 5 Hoban TDs.
Sutton also had some praise for the other team's defense - "No one has ever hit me as hard as those guys," he said [in the Akron Beacon]. "They beat me up."
Wait 'til LB Coach Pat Fitzgerald's guys get a shot at Sutton during Kenosha next year.
Next up for Sutton and Hoban is Cleveland Benedictine.
LB/RB Mike Dinard: [Padua Franciscan Bruins, Parma, OH]
LB Prince Kwateng: [Munster HS, IN]
