While West Virginia’s offense put up fireworks over the weekend, future Mountaineers across the country were putting together excellent performances at the high school level.
Coleman continues to dominate.
Running back DeShawn Coleman led the way for Hickory (PA) once again, needing only nine carries to garner 149 yards and two touchdowns, scoring on runs of 10 and 65 yards. The 6-foot, 170-pound athlete topped things off with an 85-yard punt return for a touchdown to put the game away in the third quarter. He did not play in the final stanza.
Behind quarterback commit Chavas Rawlins, Monessen (PA) was able to pull a stunning upset over previously undefeated Canevin Catholic (PA), 28-21. Known more for his running ability, Rawlins was asked to air it out on Friday night and did just that. He threw for 208 yards and three touchdowns. He also came through in the clutch, connecting on an 11-yard TD pass with the score tied 21-21 in the fourth quarter. On the next drive, he scrambled for a first down on 3rd-and-5, helping milk the clock and leave his opponent with only seconds left in the game.
Linebacker commit Darrien Howard got into the action on Friday, too, and did so on both sides of the ball. On offense, he had one carry for an eight yard touchdown, and three catches for 32 yards and two more scores. That was all his Chaminade Julienne (OH) team needed, as he also shored up a dominant defense by registering 11 tackles and a sack in the 27-10 victory.
These three were far from the only standouts, as other West Virginia commits put up 150+ rushing yard games, had punt return touchdowns, receiving touchdowns and more.
