Saturday night's game between LA Pierce and East LA College featured nearly
900 yards of total offense. Much of the damage was done through the air as both
teams featured several receivers that could find themselves playing on the next
level in the coming years.
Maybe the most impressive player on both teams was ELAC receiver Anthony Denham
who posted seven catches for over 200 yards and three touchdowns, narrowly
missing a fourth by inches. Listed at 6-6 and 215 pounds, Denham is a fluid in
his routes and has pillow soft hands.
Playing Mr. Inside to Denham's Mr. Outside is bruising running back Aubrey Haynes
(6-0/255). Haynes has remarkably nimble feet for a player of his size,
and he's capable, as one might expect, of lowering the boom on smaller defenders
should he not find an opening.
Pierce featured a pair of big play receivers in speedster Coleman Edmond
outside threat Damon Julian
. Edmond also made his mark on special teams with a
punt return for a touchdown (how it wasn't called an illegal touch, I don't
know) as well as big returns on kickoffs.
Julian is a bigger receiver that elevates in traffic and can adjust to the ball
while he's airborne.
On the defensive side of things, Pierce defensive end David Mahoney
effective in his limited action. He was in on several plays before heading to
the sidelines with what looked like a thumb injury. ELAC defensive end Lavelle Lincome
gave the Pierce offensive line fits all night and should be heavily
recruited next year.
Here is a look at some of the top players in action from Saturday night.*
