|Jake Heaps led Skyline past Bothell.|
• No. 5 Long Beach Poly 45 (8-0), Long Beach Cabrillo 0 (0-8)
The Jackrabbits had no problem whatsoever with Moore League foe Cabrillo, as Morgan Fennell threw for three scores and the Poly defense returned two fumbles for touchdowns in an easy win, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported.
• No. 38 St. Bonaventure 51 (7-1), Santa Barbara 21 (3-5)
The Seraphs, who suffered their lone loss at Poly a couple of weeks back, put a beating on Channel League foe Santa Barbara High on Thursday, the Ventura County Star reported. Junior running back Devon Blackledge scored on runs of 54 and 28 yards while also returning a kick for a score, while USC commit Patrick Hall ran for a TD and caught another.
• The blog had a chance to speak with North Florida Christian (Tallahassee, Fla.) junior quarterback Clint Trickett the other night, and the 6-foot-2, 170-pounder is excited to share that his first offer has come in, from the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. Trickett, who impressed at last year's Nike Camp and EA SPORTS Elite 11 QB regional camp in Tuscaloosa, is also getting strong early interest from Ole Miss, Central Michigan, LSU, Boston College, Clemson, Tulsa, Auburn, Oregon and Stanford. So far this fall in seven games (including NFC's jamboree), Trickett has completed 95 of his 127 passes (74 percent) for 1,387 yards with 14 TDs and five interceptions. He's also rushed for 207 yards and three scores.
• The blog also chatted with Elite 11 QB A.J. McCarron out of St. Paul's Episcopal (Mobile, Ala.), who is preparing to play his final high school game this evening, as the Saints, currently at 3-6, will not qualify for the state playoffs this fall after winning the Class 5A state title last year. Much has been said about McCarron's scheduling official visits to some other schools besides Alabama, including this weekend to Ole Miss, but the senior laughed at some Web sites that had switched him to a "soft commit" to Alabama because of it, saying he's as solid to the Tide as he's ever been. You wonder if Alabama thinks the same, however, as another Elite 11 QB, Eugene Smith, will be in Tuscaloosa this weekend for a visit of his own.
