Several Arizona commits played over the weekend. Read on for a look at how the future Wildcats and their respective teams did.

Several Arizona commits were in action over the weekend. The following are results of their week one games:

  • Bishop Mora Salesian (CA): The Arizona commitment trio of Marquis Ware, Jamardre Cobb, and Rodney Carr lost for the second week in a row. This one was out of hand early and Venice rolled to a 57-0 win. Stats were not reported for Salesian.

  • Salpointe Catholic (AZ): The Lancers traveled to California for a rare out-of-state road game. Although many thought Salpointe would be in over its head, the team dominated the entire game, winning 47-7. Receiver commit Cameron Denson continued his streak of great games with eight catches for 104 yards, six carries for 43 yards, and an interception returned 40 yards for a touchdown.

  • Central High East (CA): A trio of Arizona commits lost 43-41 to the Liberty-Bakersfield Pirates in triple overtime. Running back Nick Wilson missed the game with a shoulder injury and defensive lineman Sharif Williams is out for the year with a knee injury. Stats for safety Devon Brewer were not reported.

  • Southridge (OR): The Skyhawks got back on track after losing the opener. They won 35-14 in the home opener. Wide receiver Jordan Morgan jad two catches for 24 yards and one run for 12, as he has been double and triple teamed early in the season.

  • Scottsdale Community College (AZ): Scottsdale continued its dominance over ranked teams, winning the second straight game at home. This time, the Fighting Artichokes upset 14th ranked Snow College 40-19. Patrick Glover returned from his minor injury in a big way. Glover had six tackles, deflected a pass, and intercepted another, returning it 94 yards for a touchdown. Antonio Smothers played, but his stats were not available.

  • Oceanside (CA): The Pirates almost knocked off the top ranked team in California, Gardena Serra, but fell just short, losing 50-39. Wide receiver Jace Whittaker was draped by star corner Adoree Jackson for a majority of the game, but did have one catch for an eight-yard touchdown.

  • Highland Park (IL): Josh Pollack was in action as Highland Park had its home opener on Friday night. The team had some issues between the long snapper and the holder, resulting in Pollack connecting on just one of his four PATs. The team did not attempt a field goal in the 31-12 win, but Pollack had two great punts, pinning the opposing team at the 7 and 17-yard lines.

  • Granite Bay (CA): Athlete Tony Ellison opened his season with a close loss to top-ranked Folsom 20-14. Ellison had 14 carries for 93 yards, breaking off a 51-yard run to open the game.

  • St. John Bosco (CA): St. John Bosco won easily for the second week in a row. Naijiel Hale was back in action for his team after missing last week's game. Hale finished with six total tackles in the game.

  • Glendale Community College (AZ): Defensive end Jerod Cody and his Glendale team won its first game at home in over three years with a 35-7 win over Compton. Exact stats for Cody were not reported.

  • Oaks Christian (CA): Arizona's lone quarterback commit, Brandon Dawkins, had his second big game in a row. Dawkins finished the 57-28 victory with 319 passing yards, completing 21 of 29 passes. He also finished the day with 50 yards rushing on eight carries.

  • Chaparral (AZ): Tight end Trevor Wood had a productive night for Chaparral in a 45-56 loss to Marcos de Niza. Wood caught five passes for 52 yards with a long of 17. Chaparral will return home to play Mountain Ridge next weekend.

  • La Habra (CA): La Habra is still undefeated to start the season after beating La Mirada 35-26 on Friday. Tight end Darrell Cloy scored on a nine-yard touchdown pass, but other statistics were not available.

  • Chandler (AZ): J.R. Hunt was a presence for his team on Friday night. Chandler rolled Basha 65-13 in a game that was over before halftime. Hunt played early, but did not record any tackles in the blowout victory.

  • Iowa Western Community College (IA): The defending champions continued to blow out their opponents. Iowa Western shut out Ellsworth 61-0 in dominating fashion. Cornerback Jamie Byrd did not record any tackles in the game, but did break up a pass with a hard hit that also knocked the receiver out of the game.
