Lynch has another big performance
Akeel Lynch continues to prove he's a superstar on the high school level and while his recruitment has taken center stage since the Boston College commit is considering Penn State and a few others his on-field performances cannot be overlooked either.
The Athol Springs (N.Y.) St. Francis running back had another huge game with 201 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 14 carries in a 56-8 win over Canisius this past weekend. All of his stats were put up in the first half as he scored from 18, 15, 35, 40 and 57 yards and played only one down in the second half.
Athlete Dan Crimmins, who has also been putting up big numbers this season, had another nice game with three catches for 105 yards and a touchdown in a 48-14 victory over Morrow.
Arguably the nation's top team, Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep, which features linebacker Mike Strizak remains undefeated with an easy 45-0 win over Paramus Catholic.
Offensive tackle Frank Taylor helped lead his one-loss Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood squad to another convincing victory with a 38-0 win over Springfield (Pa.) Cardinal O'Hara.
Offensive tackle Jim Cashman and his Haddonfield (N.J.) Memorial team won again but not in the traditional way. Overbrook forfeited the game so Cashman's squad won without even playing.
Win Homer, a standout offensive tackle at Christchurch, Va., helped his team stay undefeated with a 56-6 decision over St. Anne's-Belfield.
Linebacker Tim Joy and Chelmsford, Mass., defeated Central Catholic, 33-17 and defensive end Malachi Moore helped his Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII past Montville, 35-7.
Penn State commit Armani Reeves, who had been considering Boston College, scored on a 35-yard run and a 72-yard punt return and quarterback A.J. Doyle threw a touchdown pass as West Roxbury (Mass.) Catholic Memorial beat St. John's Prep, 26-7. Cornerback Donovan Henry was also involved in the win.
It's been a tough stretch for tight end Sam Grant and his Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward club that dropped a 20-17 decision to Cleveland St. Ignatius this past weekend. It has lost three of its last four games against powerful teams from across Ohio and the country. St. Edward will look to rebound in the playoffs against Cleveland Heights.
Wide receiver Harrison Jackson and his Purcellville (Va.) Loudoun County squad were blanked, 37-0, by Briar Woods.
Linebacker Steven Daniels and Worcester (Mass.) Worcester Academy and defensive back Justin Simmons and his Stuart (Fla.) Martin County squad had bye weeks.
