A shorthanded Regis squad, missing tight end Jack Stull, receiver Trevor Williams and defensive tackle Ace Escobedo, overcame the injuries and defeated Denver South 44-14. Tim Lynott, Jack Maly and crew dominated the LOS as per the norm, but South defensive end Potros Mabany did manage to catch my eye. Crazy long at 6-6, Mabany has a ridiculous amount of space to add weight. Mabany also plays with motor and could be a good project for FCS schools to look at.
Last night, I also had the chance to look at Grandview. The Wolves blanked ThunderRidge 44-0, posting forty points for the fourth straight game on their undefeated season. Key to this offensive output is the play of senior QB Cody Summers. The 6-4 195 pounder is a slick operator that can make plays with his arm and legs. Summers does not overwhelm he just makes the right play at the right time, managing an offense that has multiple playmakers. Last night Summers threw for a score and ran for two others.
Summers has numerous weapons, but 6-3 receiver Jalin Bishop and 6-5 220 pound tight end Morgan Smith naturally catch the eye due to their size and athletic ability.
Fellow senior offensive playmaker Chukwuma Obinnah, a 210 pound running back, rushed for 153 yards and two scores on 15 carries. Obinnah showed his combination of speed and power bouncing off initial tacklers and gaining extra yards. Obinnah looked to be nursing an ankle, but once 100% his burst is tough to beat, especially for a big back. Wyoming, Colorado State and Kansas State are all showing interest.
Around the state two of Colorado’s top defenders, 2016 DE Carlos Kemp of Fairview and Rocky Mountain’s 2015 LB Max McDonald both had pick six returns.
