Future Cougars Report

HUSKY COACH Chris Petersen came to watch Washington State cornerback commit Austin Joyner this past Friday. He saw Joyner put on a show as Marysville-Pilchuck blew by Lake Stevens.

For the second straight week, Austin Joyner took his first carry of the game to the house, a 79-yarder following his 59-yard scoring run the previous week. Joyner racked up 195 yards rushing on but 13 carries and scored four TDs in the 41-15 win. Joyner will play on defense at Washington State but he's on pace to finish as one of the state's best running backs. Joyner began the season with 3,823 career rushing yards and now has 4,281 hashes after tallying 458 yards in the season's first two games. A 2,000-yard season would move him into the state's all-time top ten list of prep rushers. With 2,126 yards, he'd move into the fifth spot on the state’s all-time rushing list.

LB Aaron Porter: Porter continues to lead Cerritos College in tackles through two games after posting eight tackles and a pass breakup in the 55-26 win over Orange Coast. For the season, Porter has 16 tackles (seven solo), one sack, three tackles for loss, one interception and two pass breakups.

In Upland, Calif., WR Kameron Powell racked up nine tackles, (sixsolo) in Upland's 28-14 loss to Tesoro. In three games, Powell has 23 tackles (13 solo). He and Upland have outscored the competition, (128-28) but now stand at 2-1. He also has a fumble return for a touchdown on the season.

Powell's teammate -- QB Tyler Hilinski -- had a rare off-night. He was 15-29 for 177 yards with no TDs and two picks in the loss. On the season, he is 41-61 for 658 yards with seven TDs against two INTs. He's also carried the ball 23 times for 66 yards (including sacks) with one score.

Complete stats weren't available but future Coug slot receiver Dominic Davis, out Bishop Alemany in Mission Hills, Calif., had 100-plus all purpose yards and three touchdowns in Alemany's 51-30 win over Narbonne.

In Walnut Creek, Calif., OL Noah Myers was instrumental in Las Lomas' 41-7 win over Oakland. Fremont had a 7-0 lead after the first quarter, but then Myers and crew scored 21 unanswered points in the second quarter and 41 the rest of the way to record their second straight non-league win.

K Matt Abramo accounted for his team's only points this past week, booting a 34-yard field goal in Casa Grande's loss to No. 12 (state rankings) Elk Grove.

OL Cedric Bigge-Duren led Oceanside (CA) to it's third straight win to open the season, a 24-0 shutout over Chaparral. Oceanside is seen as a good bet to make a state bowl out of the San Diego Section and as a potential ranked team nationally this fall.

CB Darrien Molton out of Temecula, Calif. had four solo tackles in Chaparral's loss to Oceanside and Bigge-Duren. For the season, Molton has 11 takedowns (eight solo), four passes defensed and 124 all-purpose yards including a TD reception.

WR Deontay Burnett: He had three catches for 51 yards as Serra beat Carson 31-6. For the season Burnett has nine receptions for 137 hashes.

RB James Williams out of Burbank, Calif. is done for the season, as CF.C reported earlier. Williams finishes his senior season with 66 yards on 19 carries coming in Burbank's opener, a 26-14 win over Ayala.

In Mountain View, Calif., DL Thomas Toki, made his season debut (shoulder) in St. Francis' 21-12 loss to Palma. Toki had four tackles (all assists).
