With the 2012 high school football season entering the homestretch, ISD will be keeping you up to date with who the Notre Dame's commitments will be playing on a weekly basis and also giving you the final results of those games on Mondays.
Jamel James RB Cinco Ranch:
Cinco Ranch (6-3) will close out the regular season Saturday against Strake Jesuit (2-7) at Rhodes Stadium.
James could have a big night going against a Crusader defense that's allowing 37 points-per-game.
Last season, Cinco Ranch defeated Strake Jesuit, 42-24.
Corey Robinson WR San Antonio Christian:
The San Antonio Christian Lions (6-3) will close out the regular season when they host Savio (0-9) in San Antonio.
Robinson should have a monster night against a Eagle defense that's surrendering a staggering 57 points-per-game.
These teams didn't face each other last season.
Torii Hunter, Jr. WR Prosper:
Hunter Jr. and the Eagles (8-1) will host the Frisco Racoons (6-3) Friday evening to close the regular season.
This should be a fairly good offensive game as both teams are averaging over 35 points-per-game.
These teams didn't play each other last year.
Mike Heuerman TE Barron Collier:
Barron Collier (6-3) will host the Gulf Coast Sharks (2-8) Friday night to close out the regular season.
Barron Collier should be able to dominate this game as the Sharks have struggled all year holding opponents under 30 points.
Last season, Barron Collier crushed Gulf Coast, 54-22.
Steven Elmer OL Midland:
The Chemics (11-0) will battle Muskegon (10-1) in a playoff battle of Michigan heavyweights.
These teams are extremely evenly matched and should be a terrific match-up.
Midland and Muskegon didn't play each other last season.
Mike McGlinchey OL Penn Charter:
Penn Charter (4-4) has a away game Saturday against Germantown Academy (3-5).
Last season, Penn Charter Blitzed Germtown Academy, 54-7.
Colin McGovern OL Lincoln-Way West:
Lincoln-Way West (8-3) will look to keep their playoff run going this Saturday against Joliet Catholic Academy (8-4).
Lincoln-Way West will be facing a pretty good offensive team that averages about 35 points-per game, but could have there way against the Hilltopper defense that gives up quite a few points (25 per game).
This is a revenge game for Lincoln-Way West since Joliet Catholic knocked them out of the playoffs last season, 48-14.
John Montelus OL Everett:
The Everett Crimson Tide (8-1) will host Malden (2-7) tonight in Everett, Massachusetts.
Everett should dominate and pick up their ninth win easily.
Last season, Everett destroyed Malden, 42-22.
Jacob Matuska DE Bishop Hartley:
Bishop Hartley (11-0) will have their hands full tonight when they play undefeated North Union (11-0).
This game should be mind blowing in terms of two high-powered offenses (Hartley, 46 points-per-game and Union North, 44 points-per-game) going up against two unmovable defenses that surrender very few points (Hartley, 8 points-per-game and Union North, 9 points-per game).
Last season, Hartley beat North Union in the playoffs, 42-14.
Isaac Rochell DE Eagle’s Landing Christian:
Eagle’s Landing Christian (8-1) will host Landmark Christian (7-2) tonight to wrap up the regular season.
This should be a decent game, but I think Eagle's Landing is just to strong and dominate.
Last season, Eagle's Landing was bounced from the playoffs by Landmark Christian, 14-7.
Alex Anzalone LB Wyomissing:
Wyomissing (10-0) will open the playoffs against Littlestown (7-3) on Saturday afternoon.
Littlestown is defintely no pushover and can put up points in a hurry (32 points-per-game).
Wyomissing better show up to play. Last season, Wyomissing crushed Littlestown, 49-26.
Michael Deeb LB American Heritage:
American Heritage (8-1)will close out the regular season Friday night when they travel to Naples, Florida to face Golden Gate (3-6).
This game could get ugly real quick and I think America Heritage could put up some huge numbers this week.
Last season, American Heritage buried Golden Gate, 34-14.
Danny Mattingly LB Mead Senior:
Mead (9-2) will take their next step in the playoffs on Saturday when they face off against the Newport Grizzlies (3-6).
Mead should have their way with a Grizzly defense that's surrendering over 30 points-per-game.
These teams didn't play each other last season.
Jaylon Smith LB Bishop Luers:
The Knights (8-4) will be going for the Regional championship tonight against Tipton (11-1).
This is a very dangerous game for Luers and their hunt for another state championship.
Tipton brings in a offense that's averaging over 40 points-per-game.
Last season, Luers defeated Tipton in the playoffs, 44-23.
Doug Randolph and Greer Martini (2014) LB’s Woodberry Forest:
Woodberry Forest (6-3) will close the regular season Saturday afternoon against Episcopal (3-6).
After receiving a beatdown last weekend, I believe Woodberry Forest will take out their frustrations on a struggling Maroon defense.
Last season, Woodberry Forest defeated Episcopal, 21-12.
Devin Butler CB Gonzaga:
Gonzaga (8-2) first game of the playoffs will be against a very upset DeMatha (8-2) squad on Saturday afternoon.
Two weekends ago, Gonzaga shocked the powerhouse by handing them a 27-10 loss. This should be a fantastic game.
Cole Luke CB Hamilton:
Hamilton (8-3) next step in the playoffs will be tonight against the Desert Vista Thunder (9-2).
Luke, Notre Dame's newest commit, has helped lead the Huskies defense that's only surrendering only 14 points-per-game this season.
They'll definitely need their 'A'-game tonight against a Thunder offense that's scoring over 37 points-per-game.
Last season, Hamilton lost the state championship game to Desert Vista, 45-19.
Rashad Kinlaw CB Absegami:
Absegami (5-2) was scheduled to host Atlantic City (5-2) last Friday at Absegami High School, but the game will be played tonight because of hurricane Sandy.
Kinlaw, who had been out all season with a leg injury he received with the U.S. National team, was back in action and has made his presence known.
These teams seem to be evenly matched, so it should be a very good game.
Last season, Absegami loss to Atlantic City, 32-27.
Malik Zaire QB Archbishop Alter:
Archbishop Alter (8-2-1) season came to an abrupt end in the first round of the playoffs as they were defeated by the Shawnee Braves (8-3), 42-34.
Will Fuller WR Roman Catholic:
Roman Catholic (5-4) wrapped up their season with a playoff loss to La Salle College (9-1), 42-13.
James Onwualu WR Cretin-Derham:
The Raiders finished the season (6-3) and lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Woodbury Royals (4-5), 21-14.
Hunter Bivin OL Apollo:
Apollo (2-9) season came to an end against Bowling Green (11-0), 62-6.
Justin Brent WR Speedway:
Speedway's (7-4) season came to an end losing to undefeated Cardinal Ritter (11-0), 49-21.
