High School Football News and Notes: Week 3

Baylor commits continue in action in Week 3 of the high school football season. Come see what numbers Eddie Johnson already put up this week, and learn a lot more about the matchups these future Bears will be facing this week, only here at BearsIllustrated.com.

Here is our breakdown of each Baylor commit for Week 3 of the high school football season.

Waco Midway (Ahmad Dixon): Midway is 3-0 and ranked #4 in the State in the AP 4A poll. They beat Crowley last week 27-20. In the victory over Crowley - Ahmad blocked a punt and brought it back 92 yards - something about that doesn't sound right - but that's what the story says. Anyone see that? I pasted the picture below courtesy to the Waco Trib. Anyway, Midway is off this week.

Roosevelt (Dominique Henderson) vs. Lee: Roosevelt beat Churchill last week. Lee is typically not a great team - don't know much about them this year.

Katy (Sam Holl) vs. Marcus: Katy won that huge matchup I told you about last week against the state champ from Washington - Katy won 35-17. Katy Coach on the defensive effort: "We had trouble early in the game, because we were overrunning a lot of things and Sam (Holl) was having to make a lot of plays for us. But we got them off and settled down a little bit and things started going a little bit better." This week against Marcus Holl will line up opposite 3 star running back Stephen Hopkins - a Michigan commit. By the way, Katy is just out of the 5A state rankings - 11th place I guess you could say.

Allen (Luke Burleson) at Trinity: Allen is ranked #7 in the state AP Poll. Last week they defeated Rockwall 38-10. Allen knocked Trinity out of the playoffs last year - so probably a little revenge on the mind. I told you last week the coaches were on Luke and the Allen O-line as far as their running attack goes - it looks like they made some good strides in that area last week - so we'll see if that continues.

Lancaster (Tyler Stephenson) vs. Waxahachie: Beat Samuell last week 35-13. Waxahachie is 2-0 and ranked #7 in the State 4A poll.

Abilene Cooper (TC Robinson) vs. Garland. Lost to Abilene last week in a high scoring game. This is a great chance for TC to show what he's made of - he'll be lined up against 4 star WR and Texas commit Adrian Phillips.

Waco Connally (Troy Baker): Off this week.

Big Spring (Matt Ritchey) vs. Andrews. I posted on the other thread about Ritchey's incredible game - 15 tackles, 150 yards receiving and 2 receiving TD's. He continues to impress.

Midland (Antwan Goodley) at Lubbock: Game already played and won by Midland - 42-14. Antwan finished with 2 catches for 45 yards, he also scored by recovering a fumble in the endzone.

Midlothian (Eddie Johnson) vs. Mineral Wells. Ths game was played this past Tuesday (postponed from last week b/c of weather). Say hello to stud Eddie Johnson - 4 catches, 176 yards, 3 TD's. Nice!

Baytown Lee (Xavier Ruben and Tim Smith) vs. Terry. Baytown lost to Clear Creek 17-7 last week.
