Los Angeles City Section Report

A look at the season thus far.

Los Angeles City Section Report


Two of the very best backs, not only in the state of California, but in the nation play in the same section.  Both Stafon Johnson of Dorsey and CJ Gable of Sylmar are considered 5 star recruits.  Both of them can pretty much choose where they want to go to school.  Both have a ton of offers from several of the nation's elite programs.  So what are they doing so far this season? 


Stafon is having a good year, leading the section in rushing to this point in the season.  Johnson has had more than 100 yards rushing in every game so far.  Including, 156 against McClymonds, 185 against Santa Margarita and 177 against Fairfax.  On the season Johnson stats look like this, 75 carries, 676 yards and 7 TD's.  Johnson has also been invited to play in the US Army All American game. 


Not to be outdone, Sylmar's CJ Gable is currently third in the section in rushing.  Gable is also considered an elite prospect, up to this point he has lived up to his billing.  Gable had huge games against Inglewood with 257 yards and Camino Real with 198 yards on the ground respectively.  On the season Gable stats are as follows 54 carries, 625 yards 6 TD's.


So who's second in the section in rushing?  I give you Patrick Hill from Fairfax.  Hill is off to a tremendous start to this season.  Hill has been given the rock 80 times already this season.  He has responded with 659 yards and 6 TD's thus far. 


How about the wide outs that are having standout seasons thus far.  6'4 receiver Francisco Fernandez from Belmont is an imposing figure on the field.  He has used his height advantage to post 31 catches for 498 yards 6 TD's on the season. Want a junior to keep an eye out for? Moses Gilchrist from Marshall high, this season Moses has caught the ball 19 times for 463 yards and 6 TD's.  He's averaging 24 yards a catch.  That's hard to do on video games!!


Taking a look at some quarterbacks, Steven Richart from Marshall high has had two huge nights with 237 yards against South Gato and 203 yards against Van Nuys.  On the season, Richart has completed 40 passes out of 63 attempts for 879 yards and 9 touchdowns.  Another name to keep an eye out for in the future, Taft quarterback Exavier Johnson.  Johnson is a 6'3 185 sophomore quarterback.  He can play a little too.  At this point in the season Johnson has completed 42 passes out of 92 attempts for 675 yards with 12 touchdowns.  He also has only thrown 1 interception so far.  Look for him to be a big time recruit during the 2008 season.
