UCLA's coaching staff was out and about last weekend throughout the west to see several targets and commits. Here is a look at the action from Week Zero.
Game of the Week: Los Osos def. Bishop Amat, 24-20
UCLA-committed quarterback Richard Brehaut's touchdown pass to Arby Fields on 4th and 23 in the fourth quarter was the difference maker in the Grizzlies win over the Lancers. On the night, Brehaut was 9-for-19 for 125 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 82 yards and a touchdown. Cornerback Sheldon Price, who is also verbally committed to UCLA, had a solid game for Bishop Amat and UCLA prospect Brent Seals was a force for the Lancers, who were without UCLA commit Isaiah Bowens because of a leg injury.
Arcadia def. Monrovia, 41-27
Bruin commit Todd Golper had a big night on both sides of the ball to lead the Apaches to a two-touchdown win over neighboring Monrovia. Golper had 12 tackles and one defensive touchdown on a fumble recovery and ran for 120 yards and a score to help Arcadia prep for their showdown with St. Francis this weekend.
Long Beach Wilson def. Inglewood, 28-6
With Rick Neuheisel and Pete Carroll in the house, it was Wilson receiver Jemari Roberts, the committed prospect to Stanford, who got the upper hand on Inglewood receiver Shaquelle Evans, scoring two touchdowns en route to a Bruin blowout. Evans had a nice opener, catching five passes for 117 yards and scoring on a 62-yard touchdown.
Esperanza def. Corona Santiago, 12-9
The Aztecs defense made it difficult for the Sharks, and junior quarterback Brandon Connette in the opener. Connette was 7-for-15 for 86 yards and was sacked four times, though he did have a touchdown run. The Sharks defense, led by UCLA prospect Sean Martin and Sean Murray, was stout.
Rancho Verde def. Fremont, 35-0
Rancho Verde got a big opening night performance from running back and UCLA prospect Daniel Jenkins in their shutout of City Section Fremont. Jenkins ran for 190 yards on 19 carries and scored three touchdowns, his last a 33-yard crowd-pleaser. Senior linebacker Eric Martin had two sacks for RV and elite junior tackle Ronald Powell, who attended UCLA's win over Tennessee, also had two sacks. Arroyo Valley def. Pasadena, 30-19
With UCLA target Michael Philipp paving the way, Arroyo Valley ran for over 250 yards in their opening win over Pasadena. Demarcus White ran for 212 yards and three touchdowns himself in the win.
Poway def. Scripps Ranch, 54-41
Michigan commit (and little brother of UCLA quarterback Chris Forcier ) Tate Forcier threw a touchdown and ran for three while elite 2010 running back Brennan Clay had 98 yards on nine receptions, but it wasn't enough in their loss to Poway. UCLA tight end recruit J.T. Kerr was held without a score, but had a couple of catches .

Defensive end Keenan Graham's two fumble recoveries were two of five Silverado had in their 49-7 win over North Mojave.
