The football season has ended for all but one of Notre Dame’s 23 verbally committed recruits. Offensive lineman Parker Boudreaux will play for a state championship next weekend. Wide receiver Chase Claypool and safety D.J. Morgan lost last week in their final games as seniors.

OL Parker Boudreaux | Orlando (Fla.) Bishop Moore Catholic 28, Tampa Jesuit 14: Boudreaux helped pave the way for a Bishop Moore offense that took control of the game with two long scoring drives to start the second half. The 21-7 lead built by the Hornets became the largest deficit of the season for previously unbeaten Tampa Jesuit. Bishop Moore (13-1) will take on Wakulla (13-1) Friday in the FHSAA Class 5A state final.

WR Chase Claypool | Abbotsford (B.C.) Secondary 34, Carson Graham 53: Claypool caught a touchdown pass early in the Class AA Subway Bowl championship, but he would leave the game with an injury in the first quarter. He was sidelined for the rest of the first half and Abbotsford was hamstrung without him. He fought through the injury to throw a 30-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.  

S D.J. Morgan | Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco 52, Centennial 62: Morgan and the St. John Bosco defense were unable to slow down Centennial in the first half. The Huskies totaled 55 points and 460 yards by halftime. Notre Dame wide receiver target Javon McKinley caught seven passes for 132 yards and one touchdown and also threw a 65-yard touchdown pass for Centennial. Morgan ended his senior season for the Braves (13-1) with a loss in the CIF Southern Section Pac 5 Division championship.
