The Arizona Wildcats are geared up to finally start their season Saturday against USC (hopefully) after their original season opener against Utah was canceled. The future of the Arizona football team, however, has been making its way through the high school football season. Let’s take a look at how they’ve fared the past two weeks.

Tyrese Johnson, WR, KIPP Booker T. Washington Lions

  • Oct. 30 Result: Victory over Wright, 34-6
  • Nov. 5 Result: Loss to Bogalusa, 22-28
  • Record: 4-3
  • Game Stats: Unknown
  • Season Stats: Unknown
  • Oct. 15 Notes: I was unable to find any stats or film of Johnson during their victory over Wright. However, look at him high-point the ball in the below tweet. My goodness.
  • Nov. 5 Notes: I was unable to find any stats or film of Johnson in KIPP’s loss to Bogalusa.

Montrell Johnson, RB, De La Salle Cavaliers

  • Nov. 5 Results: Victory over Haynes Academy, 41-0
  • Record: 5-0
  • Game Stats: Unknown
  • Season Stats: 454 yds, 7 TD; 2 rec TD (incomplete stats)
  • Nov. 5 Notes: I’m not sure Johnson played this past weekend. I haven’t seen any film of him like I usually do and no stats. However, his midseason highlights dropped. Enjoy.

Kevon Garcia, LB, Dekaney Wildcats

  • Oct. 31 Results: Victory over Aldine, 58-7
  • Results: 3-2
  • Oct. 31 Game Stats: 7 tackles
  • Season Stats: 40 tackles, 3.5 TFL, 1 PBU, 1 fumble recovery
  • Oct. 31 Notes: Garcia had another productive game on Halloween. He didn’t live in the backfield like he usually does but his game film below shows three angles of him effectively setting the defense and dissecting the play. He tackled the ball carrier for a minimal gain.

Ja’Marian Peterson, DE, De La Salle Cavaliers

  • Nov. 5 Results: Victory over Haynes Academy, 41-0
  • Record: 5-0
  • Nov. 5 Game Stats: 1 tackle, 1 TFL (incomplete stats)
  • Season Stats: 4 tackles, 4 TFL, 1 sack (incomplete stats)
  • Nov. 5 Notes: I was unable to find a full stat line for Peterson, however, there was a clip of him from a local new station. You see him fly into the backfield (#7) and tackle the QB on a designed QB run for a loss. It seems almost every week there is visual evidence of Peterson getting into the backfield and causing havoc. That is good news for the Wildcats and fans.

Javione Carr, DB, Sam Houston Texans

  • Oct. 30 Results: Victory over Arlington, 33-30
  • Nov. 6 Results: Loss to South Grand Prairie, 0-27
  • Record: 3-3
  • Oct. 30 Game Stats: 15 tackles
  • Nov. 6 Game Stats: 12 tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 blocked FG
  • Season Stats: 90 tackles, 3 PBU, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 1 blocked FG
  • Oct. 30 Notes: Carr continued to produce the day before Halloween. He finished with 15 tackles and his film shows him blasting a call carrier, legally, out-of-bounds.
  • Nov. 6 Notes: Carr appeared to have a great game. He did a good job disrupting a wide receiver on a screen and caused a fumble. He came screeching in to block a field goal attempt. And he continued to prove that he is a fantastic tackler. I think he is easily one of the steals in this class for Arizona.

Jackson Bailey, LB, Red Oak Hawks

  • Oct. 30 Results: Victory over Richland, 56-40
  • Nov. 6 Results: Loss to Colleyville Heritage, 13-27
  • Record: 2-2
  • Game Stats: Unknown
  • Season Stats: 9 tackles, 2 TFL (incomplete stats)
  • Notes: I was unable to find any stats or film for Bailey for either game.

Kolbe Cage, LB/DB, Holy Cross Tigers

  • Oct. 31 Results: Loss to Archbishop Rummel, 33-56
  • Nov. 5 Results: Loss to John Curtis Christian, 3-37
  • Record: 1-4
  • Game Stats: Unknown
  • Season Stats: 8 tackles, 0.5 TFL, 1 INT (incomplete stats)
  • Notes: I was unable to find any stats or film for Cage for either game.

K.C. Ossai, LB, Oak Ridge War Eagles

  • Oct. 29 Results: Victory over Conroe, 38-14
  • Nov. 6 Results: Loss to The Woodlands, 21-31
  • Record: 4-2
  • Oct. 29 Game Stats: 7 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery (incomplete stats)
  • Nov. 6 Game Stats: Unknown
  • Season Stats: 14 tackles, 3 TFL, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery (incomplete stats)
  • Oct. 29 Notes: Ossai had a great game. He was all over the field and showcased his horizontal speed, getting to the sidelines in a hurry to take down ball carriers. He was so effective, he actually caused a fumble without touching the QB. Impressive.
  • Nov. 6 Notes: I couldn’t find any stats or film on Ossai.

Dalton Johnson, DB, Katy Tigers

  • Oct. 30 Results: Victory over Dickinson, 49-7
  • Nov. 5 Results: Loss to Tompkins, 19-24
  • Record: 5-1
  • Game Stats: Unknown
  • Season Stats: 1 INT (incomplete stats)
  • Game Notes: I couldn’t find any stats or film of Johnson for either game.

Stevie Rocker Jr., RB, Canyon del Oro Dorados

  • Oct. 30 Results: Loss to Cienega, 14-28
  • Nov. 6 Results: Victory over Desert View, 21-20
  • Record: 1-1
  • Game Stats: Unknown
  • Season Stats: Unknown
  • Game Notes: I was unable to find any stats or film of Rocker for either game.

Colby Powers, TE, Klein Collins Tigers

  • Oct. 30 Results: Victory over Tomball, 31-17
  • Nov. 7 Results: Loss to Klein Cain, 21-35
  • Record: 2-3
  • Oct. 30 Game Stats: Unknown
  • Nov. 7 Game Stats: 11-for-22, 167 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT; 4 car, 23 yds, 1 TD
  • Season Stats: 14-for-27, 206 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT; 11 car, 60 yds, 3 TD
  • Oct. 30 Notes: I was unable to find any stats or film of Powers.
  • Nov. 7 Notes: Powers had a pretty good game this past weekend. He had a very nice 43-yard bomb down the field for a touchdown. It’s nice to see him back out competing after suffering a shoulder injury earlier this season.

Jakelyn Morgan, DB, Tyler Legacy Raiders

  • Oct. 30 Results: Loss to Skyline, 24-30
  • Nov. 6 Results: Loss to Rockwall, 40-45
  • Record: 2-4
  • Oct. 30 Game Stats: 3 tackles, 2 PBU
  • Nov. 6 Game Stats: 2 PBU, 1 fumble recovery (incomplete stats)
  • Season Stats: 21 tackles, 6 PBU, 1 fumble recovery (incomplete stats)
  • Oct. 30 Notes: Morgan had a relatively good game. He had a couple of PBUs and was very effective at taking his receiver out of the picture with his staunch coverage.
  • Nov. 6 Notes: Morgan had another solid game. He racked up another two PBUs but, more importantly, snagged a fumble. His highlights were a little short for this game, but you can still see why Arizona likes him so much.
  • SENIOR HIGHLIGHTS

Kyion Graves, WR, Chandler Wolves

  • Oct. 30 Results: Victory over Centennial, 31-7
  • Record: 5-0
  • Oct. 30 Game Stats: 3 rec, 42 yds, 1 TD
  • Season Stats: 19 rec, 383 yds, 7 TD
  • Oct. 30 Notes: Grayes had another productive night for the Wolves, snagging his seventh touchdown of the season. He continues to be a big threat in the short and intermediate passing game, but he had a nice 25-yard grab near the sideline as well.

Treyson Bourguet, QB, Salpointe Catholic Lancers

  • Oct. 30 Results: Victory over Campo Verde, 21-14
  • Nov. 6 Results: Victory over Mountain Ridge, 38-21
  • Record: 4-0
  • Oct. 30 Game Stats: 15-for-27, 160 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT; 7 car, 25 yds, 0 TD
  • Nov. 6 Game Stats: 8-for-17, 131 yds, 4 TD, 1 INT; 3 car, 2 yds, 0 TD
  • Season Stats: 40-for-71, 486 yds, 8 TD, 3 INT; 12 car, 27 yds, 0 TD
  • Oct. 30 Notes: Bourguet has been impressive this year and has, without a doubt, taken a large step forward in his development from a year ago. He throws a really nice ball, which you can see for yourself in his highlights below, and is starting to really use his legs to keep plays alive.
  • Nov. 6 Notes: From a pure numbers standpoint, Bourguet’s state-line is eye-popping...at least at first glance. He completed only eight passes, however, HALF of those completions were touchdowns. He didn’t need to have a massive night to lead the Lancers to victory. But he sure did have a very efficient night. There a plenty of times in college and the NFL where efficiency reigns supreme over large numbers. I love Bourguet’s efficiency and, to be honest, that is his best attribute. Solidifying efficiency can lead to bigger nights, and I expect they will for the rising junior. Look at this beautiful pass he throws to Elijah Barclay.
