Senior Night for many Deac commits

Many of Wake Forest's commits had their senior night tonight, and are preparing for the end of the season and possibly a playoff run. With the High School football season winding down, teams are in full force to win and make their claim for a playoff bid. This brings out the best in players, and the Deacon commits did not disappoint. Deacons Illustrated takes a look at their impressive performances.

Desmond Floyd-Union County is simply on a roll, as they have posted a seven game winning streak. On their senior night, they didn't put the (then) 6 game win streak in jeopardy as they defeated Blue Ridge 28-8. The Yellow Jacket's defense pressured the Blue Ridge quarterback all night, and constantly caused problems for the Blue Ridge offense. The defense also had two defensive stands during the first quarter to keep Blue Ridge off of the board. Desmond Floyd helped stuff the run and was living in the backfield during the game, from pressuring from the quarterback to taking on double-teams.

Union County will host a game in the first round of the South Carolina 3A playoffs next week.

Hunter Goodwin-Fresh off of a bye, Gilman didn't waste any time as they rolled to a win over Mount St. Joseph 49-7. The running game, an important cog in the Greyhound offense dominated the matchup. Hunter Goodwin and the Gilman offensive line helped lead the way for Darius Jennings and C.J. Jones. The duo combined for 248 yards rushing, and 5 touchdowns on the ground. Goodwin also provided with a handful of pancakes during the contest.

Dylan Intemann-Wake Forest-Rollesville made sure to use what the team is best at to defeat Millbrook this past Friday, the running game. The Cougars didn't throw the ball in the second half, and ran the ball down Millbrook's throat on the way to their 21-12 run. Dylan Intemann contributed his part on the offensive line, helping to open up holes for the running backs and over 200 yards rushing. Intemann also recorded 7 pancake blocks.

Wake-Forest Rollesville can obtain a share of their conferences title if they defeat Leesville Road next week.

Sherman Ragland-Southern Durham notched their fifth straight win this past Friday, defeating their rival Northern Durham 13-6. The Spartans were down 6-0 in the fourth quarter, and Northern was on the verge of scoring when the Southern Durham defense stepped up and stopped Northern Durham on downs. After a score, the Southern Durham defense produced again, making the Northern QB fumble in Northern territory. After another score to put them up by 7, Southern Durham had to stop Northern following a kick return that got them in enemy territory. A pick by Southern Durham sealed the win. Sherman Ragland ended up with 7 tackles, a forced fumble on defense, and 5 receptions for 80 yards on offense.

Allen Ramsey-Ramsey and his Dillard squad had a bye this past weekend.

Will Harlos-Somerset continues to win, defeating Hondo 33-7. Both Somerset's offense and defense is cliking on all cylinders and doing their parts in preparation for the playoffs. Hondo is another playoff team in their division, but couldn't keep up with the firepower of the potent Somerset offense, led by QB Stevie Dorman. Deacs commit Will Harlos continues to be a leader for the defense and make many plays. Harlos commands the defense and racks up the stats.

Orville Reynolds-Douglas took another hit on their win-loss total by losing to Wake recruit Harmon Brown and Boyd Anderson 40-3. The Dillard offense continues to struggle, as Wake Forest commit Orville Reynolds is still nursing an injury and expects to be ready soon. Douglas scored their lone points early, and made the score 3-0 midway through the first half, but Boyd Anderson took over from there with a big passing game. Reynolds is expecting to be back soon, in time for playoffs.

Cody Preble-Park Vista pulled out a close game, defeating Seminole Ridge 28-24. The Cobras willed their way to victory behind their stud running back Tre Mason, who gained over 300 yards rushing and 4 touchdowns. Cody Preble is still recovering from his surgery, and is doing well but the Park Vista offensive line made holes for Mason and helped to push their team to the W.

Godspower Offor-American couldn't make it 3 wins in a row this past Thursday, as they were defeated by North Miami 7-25. The American offense couldn't get going at first at never got back into the game, letting North Miami rack up yardage of the defense. Godspower Offor was on the field a lot with the American defense, but still shone as he registered a bevy of tackles and was in the backfield on numerous occasions.
