The latest round of games was good to the majority of the University of Virginia football program’s class of 2016 recruits, as most were victorious. Let’s get to the highlight performances from last week…
– Quarterback Sonny Abramson turned in his best game of the 2015 season last week, when he completed 9-of-15 passes for 119 yards and three touchdowns in Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII’s 43-14 win over Montville. The future Hoo signal caller also had six carries for 58 yards.
Pope John XXIII improves to 4-2 and has won four straight after dropping its first two games.
– Cavalier running back commitment Laderrien Wilson rushed 14 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns, helping Kissimmee (FL) Osceola (6-1) to a 55-23 win over rival St. Cloud. Wilson’s highlights from last week’s victory are below.
– Shelby (N.C.) Crest launched an impressive aerial attack in last week’s 48-14 win over Kings Mountain. Chargers senior signal caller Willie Green II threw seven touchdown passes, one of which went to UVa-bound tailback Tre Harbison, in the victory. Crest is now 7-0.
– Spotsylvania (VA) Courtland has rattled off five straight wins, including last week’s 34-13 defeat of a talented Chancellor squad. Senior cornerback/wide receiver Nick Grant made some nice plays on defense in the victory, and you can check out his highlights below. Grant, who is no. 1 in blue, plays left cornerback.
– Hasise Dubois reeled in four catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in Wayne (N.J.) DePaul Catholic’s 15-13 loss to Bergen Catholic. The 6’4″, 195-pound senior has played well all season long, totaling 20 catches for 284 yards and six touchdowns in five games (1-4).
– Suwanee (GA) Collins Hill, which features Virginia linebacker recruit Robert Snyder, defeated Duluth for its fourth straight win. The Eagles dropped the first three games of the 2015 season.
Snyder is credited with 46 tackles (25 solo) including 10 tackles for loss thus far this season (stats per MaxPreps). Check out the future Hoo’s highlights from last week’s game below…
– Monroeville (PA) Gateway, which features Virginia-bound athlete Aidan Howard, dropped a 31-21 decision to Mars to fall to 3-3. Howard, a 6’4″, 185-pound senior, is a versatile player with potential at multiple positions on the major college level. Most of the highlights below show Howard on defense, though he did make nice catch and run as well.
