Weekend 5 (Sept 14 -16):
Coming off a fantastic Week 4 in prep football, future duck athletes took to the field on Friday night looking to one-up last week’s performance. Their stats, game recap, and analysis can be found below:
RB Dontre Wilson (DeSoto HS – DeSoto, TX) vs Trinity HS
FINAL SCORE: W 42-21
Overshadowed by the sensational early season performances of Thomas Tyner, Dontre Wilson should not be forgotten. He has displayed great versatility against some of the top teams in the state of Texas. Wilson and DeSoto looked to continue their success against another top-tier opponent in Trinity HS.
DeSoto grabbed an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter after Wilson scampered for a 3 yard score to cap off an 87 yard drive. He found the endzone two more times in back-to-back drives during the 2nd quarter to make it 28-7. Still only midway through the 3rd quarter and Dontre Wilson had already racked up 156 total yards and 3 touchdowns. His last touchdown came on an exciting play when the DeSoto quarterback attempted a quick draw handoff to Wilson and fumbled the ball. He picked it up as Wilson flared into the flat and fired a fade for a 15-yard touchdown to put the game out of reach.
Wilson and the DeSoto offense has shown all year that their explosive, high-octane offense can be nearly impossible to stop. Saturday night was no different as they recorded 433 yards of total offense (just below their season average) in the shellacking of tradition-rich Trinity HS. “Teams always want to play Euless Trinity, since they’ve got so much tradition,” Wilson said. “It was a test, and we came out and dominated”.
14 rush, 134 yd, 1 td

RB Thomas Tyner (Aloha HS – Beaverton, OR) vs Lakeridge
FINAL SCORE: W 84-63
Coming off a game last week against Thurston in which he rushed for 5 touchdowns on only 12 carries, Thomas Tyner knew he needed to have another big game on offense to keep up with Lakeridge. Boy, did he ever.
20, 41, 62, 60, 65, 48, 41, 40, 34 and 10 yards. What do those numbers mean? Those are the length of each of his rushing touchdowns on Friday night. None of them less than 10 yards and nine of them were from 20+ yards out. Once Tyner sees a slight crease, it’s all over for the defense. No matter what angle the they take on him, his 10.3 second (100m) track speed proves to be too much for defenders in the open field. Truly amazing to watch. But Tyner isn’t a track athlete playing football, he’s a football player who does track on the side. He knows how to find the holes, turns on the jets at the right time, makes the correct cutbacks, and is an able receiver out of the backfield. He’s a complete back.
There is not much more to say about a performance like this other than, “save it for the ducks!”. One more ridiculous stat to throw out there: Thomas broke the Oregon state rushing record for yards in a game (Jake LaCoste 508 yds) on his seventh rushing attempt of the game. Yes, his seventh.
Ridiculous (38 carries for 643 yards and 10 touchdowns)
WR Darren Carrington (Horizon HS – San Diego, CA) vs Crawford HS
FINAL SCORE: 47-20
Horizon came into to the game Friday night against Crawford HS as a heavy favorite. Unfortunately for Crawford, they just didn’t have the athletes necessary to compete with a team consisting of a couple future Division 1 prospects in Markel Byrd and Darren Carrington. Unlike last week when they faced a tough Mission Bay team who forced them to put the ball in the air, this week Horizon stayed conservative and kept it on the ground for the majority of the game. They attempted only 10 passes (5 completed) for 80 yards and one touchdown. Carrington accounted for 40 of those yards and two scores on 3 catches.
Carrington has drawn rave reviews from teammates and coaches regarding his talent level, even going as far to describe him as “the guy you’d better double cover unless you want to look at his back”. But if there is one specific skill that may set him apart upon his arrival at Oregon, it’s his blocking ability. Last season, dual-threat quarterback Markel Byrd performed most of the rushing duties. Thus, it was Carrington’s responsibility to help block downfield and he did just that. Whether on punts, kicks, screens, or designed running plays, Carrington has shown a dedication to blocking no matter what the circumstances, a rare skill found among young high school prospects that is certain to carry over to the next level.

OL Evan Voeller (West Linn HS – West Linn, OR) vs Barlow HS
FINAL SCORE: 22-14
Though West Linn came away with a 22-10 victory over Barlow HS, the night was marred by the injury of Evan Voeller during the game. The diagnosis was a Type 3 AC separation, which will sideline him for the rest of the season if surgery is performed. Voeller, though in excruciating pain from the initial separation, showed the warrior within by staying on the field until the end of the drive, “I got up and played two more plays then we scored”. Voeller knows this will be a slight setback, but he wants to continue to be a leader for West Linn saying, “I’ll just try my best to be a leader for the guys”. He is expected to be 100% healthy in time for fall camp next year. Hope for a speedy recovery!
OL Doug Brenner (West Linn HS – West Linn, OR) vs Canby HS
FINAL SCORE: W 42-3
The beast in the middle, Doug Brenner, helped paved the way for Jesuit’s running game in a 42-3 blowout over Canby HS. The offensive line as a whole dominated the line of scrimmage; and it’s not by chance as they average 6-5 295 across the board. This led to another statistical outpour on the ground for running back AJ Glass, who totaled 224 yards for the game (787 for the year). In a non-conference game next week Jesuit (3-0) takes on Central Catholic, led on defense by BYU commit Dalin Leavitt.
OL Alex Redmond (Los Alamitos HS – Los Alamitos, CA) vs University HS
FINAL SCORE: 45-42
Alex Redmond helped the Griffins to a 40-0 blowout win over University. With their depth at running diminished because of injury, Los Alamitos showed that they will get production on the ground no matter who they plug in at running back. Both Dejohn Ruffin and Dashawn Gordon rushed for over 100 yards on the night thanks to the open holes created by the Redmond and the offensive line.
250+ total yards rushing
CB Chris Seisay (American Canyon HS – American Canyon, CA) vs Sonoma Valley HS
FINAL SCORE: W 45-0
American Canyon scored early and often en route to a 45-0 demolishing of Sonoma Valley HS. While the offense played their role in the decisive win, it was the defense that made their mark on the game. The offense sputtered early and it wasn’t until midway through the 2nd quarter that they got on the board when Seisay caught a 20 yard touchdown to give them a 7-0 lead. At halftime the score was 14-0, but there was no doubt that American Canyon had control because of their imperious defense. They pressured the quarterback all night and didn’t allow anything along the edge. Dragons coach Mick O’Meara said, “They’re a very good team. They have speed that we just can’t match at all”. Seisay and the defense as a whole held Sonoma Valley to 90 yards of total offense for the game.
Seisay, being recruited as a cornerback by Oregon, has shown his newly refined skills on defense by holding his man without a catch on Friday night.

TE John Mundt (Central Catholic HS – Modesto, CA) vs Downey HS
FINAL SCORE: L 45-42
Central Catholic came into Friday night’s game as the heavy favorites against Downey HS. Central had not lost to an inner-city school since 1989 and it looked like it would again be a steep challenge for Downey.
They were up for the challenge early as they jumped out to a 24-0 lead due to the fact that they were able to shut down star running back Ray Lomas and disrupt the passing game. But Central would not go away easily as they bounced back quickly with two touchdowns before the half to make it 24-14. The offense started to gain momentum and churn out the yards in the 2nd half and by the 3rd quarter they had cut the lead to 31-28. For the game, Central’s offense accumulated nearly 500 yards of total offense, but it was offense of Downey that came through during key stretched at the end to complete one of the biggest upsets of the year.
The passing game for Central was on and off for most of the game. Though they tallied 316 passing yards and 4 touchdowns, Downey also forced 16 incompletions and 3 interceptions. Duck commit John Mundt contributed 40 yards receiving on 4 receptions. Defensively, Mundt did what he could to stop the electric Downey offense, registering 6 tackles and a sack.
