His 143 yards on 15 carries and two touchdowns was not enough for Dubuque Hempstead to stay undefeated as they fell 42-12 to Cedar Falls High School which includes his good friend and Iowa State recruiting target Darion Howard. The night was also bad for Howard as he hurt his MCL and was lost during the second quarter. Josh said that two early turnovers which were capitalized on by Cedar Falls really put them in a hole. He told Cyclone Sports Report that he will likely be attending the Kansas and Nebraska home games for unofficial visits and will take his official visit after the season is over. Next week Josh and Hempstead will try to get back to their winning ways when they go on the road to take on City High School.
