Defensive coordinators around Colorado should be aware that new Cherry Creek wide receiver Ammon Johnson has put on ten pounds of muscle, making the 6-3, athletic pass catcher an even tougher cover. Johnson also reports that he is starting to mesh with Cherry Creek’s returning QB Joe Caplis. Cherry Creek, Colorado’s reigning 5A champ, has a great defense and if the O can hold its own, the Bruins could vie for the repeat.
Another top program in transition is Regis Jesuit. This offseason 2014 Head Coach Mark Nolan moved back to Arizona where he will coach Notre Dame Prep in Tempe. Ironically Regis hired an Arizonan, Dan Filleman, who formerly coached Liberty High School in Peoria, Arizona, to replace Nolan. One constant in this change is the play of 2016 defensive lineman Ace Escobedo. Escobedo, who holds offers from South Dakota, Air Force and Columbia, is working out his camp schedule and hopes to hit Colorado and will definitely attend Dartmouth and Harvard in late June.
2016 tight end Jack Stoll, a teammate of Escobedo’s, is currently on an unofficial to the University of Texas. The Longhorns offered in early April and since, Stoll has made two trips to Austin. Regarding this week’s trip Stoll states, “I really like Texas and all of its coaches it seems like a great place to play football for four years.”
2016 Strasburg QB Mitchell Martin has very extensive travel plans this summer hitting camps at Colorado State, Wyoming and Sioux Falls as well as potentially Northern Colorado and San Diego State.
JoJo Domann’s younger brother 2017 prospect Brock, will take over the reins of the Pine Creek offense next season. The 6’1 195 pounder is starting to gain some attention of his own and will have the chance, in June, to display his skills at camps at Kansas State and Wyoming.
