Future Cougars Report: Week 2

FUTURE COUGARS IN Florida, California, American Samoa and Washington now all have at least one game under their belt this season. Here's a closer look at their performances on the gridiron, including a WSU verbal commit who accounted for most of his team's yards and a crimson pledge who listed in four statistical categories in his game.

WR Calvin Green; 5-foot-10, 175 pounds; Burbank (Luther) HS; Sacramento: No. 7 Burbank faced No. 5 Pleasant Grove in a defensive battle. When the clock showed zeroes, Pleasant Grove had edged Burbank 14-to-12. The game had very few big plays, the primary exception being an electric 28-yard run from Green.

OT Braden Eggert; 6-foot-7, 315 pounds; Napa HS; Napa, Calif.: Eggert's team made adjustments at halftime that allowed the offensive line to get into the flow of the game and come out on top in a 42-21 win over Paradise. Eggert led the charge on a 37-yard touchdown run, one of Napa's three touchdowns out of the wildcat formation on the evening.

CB Kevin Griffin; 6-foot-1, 180 pounds; De La Salle HS; Concord, Calif.: Griffin recorded five total tackles and 2 passes defended in De La Salle's 21-14 win over Serra on Saturday night.

OT Jordan Rose; 6-foot-6, 305 pounds; Freeman HS; Rockford, Wash.: He was the dominate player on the field in Freeman's 14-7 non-league victory over 2A Colville. Jordan played a solid game on offense, allowing no sacks, thought he shined brightest on defense. At defensive tackle, he had six tackles, two assists, one pass deflection and one tackle for a loss. Freeman will host Pullman this Friday at 7 p.m. in another non-league game.

CB Joseph Turner; 6-foot-2, 190 pounds; College of San Mateo; San Mateo, Calif.: CSM defeated Laney College 41-27. Turner is a stand-out on the 108 man roster and is looked at as a leader on defense. He had one tackle and one fumble recovery against Laney, who had 10 total receptions in the game for 116 yards. (Laney rushed 57 times for 281 hashes.)

LB Frank Luvu; 6-foot-1.5, 205 pounds; Tafuna HS; Pago Pago, American Samoa: Luvu played outside linebacker against the Fagaitua Vikings in a 62-0 blowout victory. Luvu set the edge and recorded 2 tackles along with 1 sack in limited playing time.

K Tristan Vizcaino; 6-foot-2, 190 pounds; Damien HS; La Verne, Calif.: Vizcaino put a 29-yard field goal through the uprights and converted an extra point in Damien's 36-10 loss to Orange Lutheran.

WR Keith Harrington; 5-foot-8, 165 pounds; Northeast High; Saint Petersburg, Fla.: Harrington's Vikings were held to only 164 of total offense and were shutout 19-0 by Dixie Hollins. Starting quarterback Markus Purdy left the game with an injury -- Harrington took over at and threw for 57 yard while also running for 61 yards on 25 carries. It was a rough night for his team but Harrington accounted for nearly two-thirds of the Vikings yards gained.

WR Zaire Andre; 6-0, 170 pounds; Inglewood HS; Inglewood, Calif.: Andre caught two passes for 49 yards in Inglewood's 26-0 victory over Washington Prep. One of Andre's receptions was a 44 yard touchdown.

LB Greg Hoyd; 6-foot-2, 200 pounds; Vista Murrieta High; Vista Murrieta, Calif.: Hoyd had a solid game in a 66-28 win for the Broncos. Hoyd recorded 4 tackles, caused a fumble, recovered a fumble, and also had an interception.

DT Marcus Griffin; 6-foot-3, 292 pounds; Bellevue HS; Bellevue: Complete stats on Griffin's season debut were unavailable in Bellevue's 45-to-7 win but Griffin set the table early, tackling Skyline's quarterback for a loss on Skyline's second play from scrimmage. Griffin played on both sides of the ball, lining up at center on offense. And Bellevue racked up 354 yards on the ground. Griffin barely played in the second half due to the unexpected blowout in the battle of state prep titans.

QB Peyton Bender; 6-foot-1, 175 pounds; Cardinal Gibbons HS; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.: Bender threw for 304 yards with 4 touchdowns in a 37-15 win over Everglades on Friday night.
