S Isaiah Robertson | Naperville (Ill.) Neuqua Valley 24, Waubonsie Valley 17: Robertson’s impacted all three facets of the game in Nequa Valley’s victory. He ripped off a 50-yard kick return to set up a 15-yard touchdown catch. Robertson later added an interception on defense for the Wildcats (3-0). As a receiver, Robertson caught five passes for 40 yards.


OLB Ovie Oghoufo | Farmington Hills (Mich.) Harrison 45, Seaholm 7: Oghoufo caught two passes for 57 yards including a 28-yard touchdown in the win. He added five tackles, four tackles for a loss and two sacks for Harrison (2-1).

Central Catholic 55, North Allegheny 14: North Allegheny, playing without its starting quarterback, couldn’t keep up with Central Catholic (2-1). Lugg and the North Allegheny offense eventually rushed for 212 yards, but the unit was one-dimensional with only four pass completions for 28 yards. Adams, Hinish and the Central Catholic defense held North Allegheny (1-2) scoreless as the Vikings built a 42-point lead in the second quarter. Hinish recorded three tackles for a loss including a pair of sacks.

OL Robert Hainsey | Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy 49, Tulsa (Okla.) Booker T. Washington 7: Hainsey provided protection for Texas A&M quarterback commit Kellen Mond, who threw three touchdown passes and ran for another in the IMG (3-0) rout.

LB Drew White | Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas 49, Plantation 0: Plantation couldn’t find any running room against White and the St. Thomas Aquinas defense. The Raiders (2-1) pushed the Colonels backward for negative 17 yards rushing in the shutout. White recorded five tackles, three of which came behind the line of scrimmage.

TE Brock Wright | Cypress (Texas) Cy-Fair 44, Cypress Lakes 13: Wright helped clear the way for 248 rushing yards in a Cy-Fair win. He also added one four-yard reception for the Bobcats (1-1).

LB Pete Werner | Indianapolis Cathedral 44, Bishop Chatard 10: Werner and the Cathedral defense kept Bishop Chatard’s offense out of the end zone until the third quarter while the Irish (4-0) built a 28-3 lead.

Sidelined: CB Paulson Adebo (knee), WR Michael Young (wrist), QB Avery Davis (ankle), TE Cole Kmet (mono), RB Markese Stepp (hamstring). Adebo sat out this week, according to Joseph Hoyt of the Dallas Morning News. In his previous game, Adebo was icing his knee in the second half and didn’t return to action.
