Seniors Payton and Marshall Cain of Heritage High School in Littleton are reporting they have received an offer from Colorado School of Mines. The two way linemen have garnered significant interest from FCS and DII schools.
2016 Cherry Creek athlete Marquise Davis had his best offensive game of the season rushing for 106 yards against Valor Christian. Davis has tremendous speed and the ability to break the big run, but most impressive is how hard he runs. Davis also lines up in the slot and is a very solid defensive back. Creek, the defending 5A champ, is on a two game losing streak, but look for Davis to give the Bruins some spark heading into playoffs.
Good to see big Sean Russo pick up an offer from Mesa Community College. The 6-6 280 pound tackle is a bruiser with solid technique. If Russo goes the Juco route he could get DI looks in a couple of years.
CSU-Pueblo is playing great football right now moving up the DII rankings and you can bet the ThunderWolves will be in the thick of the DII playoffs in an attempt to defend last year’s title. Key to their success has been Head Coach John Wristen and staff’s ability to keep under rated Colorado talent in state. This year defensive end Morgan Fox formerly of Fountain-Fort Carson and Cameron McDondle, alumni of Columbine, are have All-American seasons. This past weekend CSU-Pueblo hosted multiple players that fit the M.O. Kyle Robideau (Englewood), Elijah Leyva (Pomona), Wes Exum (Horizon) and Blake Montgomery (Niwot) all were at the game as CSU-Pueblo took care of School of Mines 49-21.
Cherry Creek linebacker Steven O’Malley caught a game at Northern Colorado.
Everytime I watch Mikey Griebel I feel his best football is in front of him. He is tough, never coming off the field, returning punts, playing defensive back and of course playing offense. As the son of a coach and brother of an FCS player, he knows the game inside and out. If he moves to slot at the college level he has many of the aspects of a junior Wes Welker, Julian Edelman type.
