My Take: La Habra may have had a tough game, but Porter proved yet again he is a force to be reckoned with. The Braves offensive line was constantly aware of where he was on the field, yet Porter continuously managed to make plays by shedding blocks while displaying the speed of a sideline to sideline linebacker at the next level.

My Take: Treggs’ performance in the game lived up to the hype surrounding the 5-star receiver. He posted big numbers (8 receptions for 189 yards) and showed off his big play ability as he scored the Braves’ first touchdown with an 89-yard run less than a minute into the game. Treggs may not be the biggest guy on the field, but he consistently displays both an unmatched football savvy and fluidity in his routes. Late in the first quarter, Treggs sold play action by jogging off the line of scrimmage and then exploding into his post route, earning a 47-yard touchdown.

My Take: At first glance, Bruce doesn’t overwhelm with his size. However, he opened the game with an interception on his own 11-yard line on La Habra’s first play of the game and despite a near shut-out, steadily maintained a high level of play. Bruce is a physical cornerback who is not afraid to jam the receiver at the line of scrimmage, yet remains fluid in his backpedal and shows great finesse in his ability to play the ball in the air.

My Take: Boyster came into the game after battling illness all week, which caused him to lose seven pounds. He handled the defensive line, but had a few tough battles against MLB Aaron Porter. Overall, he held his own and helped the Braves gain 463 yards of total offense
Recruiting: Offer from SMU, interest from several schools
My Take: This game was full of turnovers and Bosco used it to their advantage. Young may have only had 11 carries, but he racked up 83 yards, including a 21-yard touchdown run with 6:37 remaining in the first half. When he did run the ball, he was dragging defenders, racking up yards after contact. Though his size isn’t overwhelming, he runs with the attitude of a more physically dominating player and is hard to break down.
