In absence of running back Gabriel Hunter, an Ole Miss commitment, to a knee injury the Falcons of Memphis-Kingsbury were still able to generate a little offense in their 35-0 win over Memphis-Northside. The Falcons had a big performance from quarterback and Memphis commitment Randy Powell, who rushed for 136 yards and two touchdowns.
The Lions of Harding Academy were led by wide receiver Marlon Brown and their backup quarterback to a big region win. Brown had 154 all purpose yards and one touchdown in the victory. He also trimmed his list from six schools to five schools including LSU, Ohio State, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee.
Savannah-Hardin County High School was able to roll over Memphis-Westwood led by quarterback Will Gilchrist, who had 100 yards in the air plus a 34 yard touchdown run. Gilchrist, a Memphis commitment, adds the threat to run to an already solid threat to pass.
One of the biggest rivalry games in the state would be closed out by one of the biggest one two punches in the state. When Coach Joe Gaddis' Paris-Henry County Patriots took on rival Dickson County on Friday night the combo of Marsalis Teague and Dominque Allen was too much firepower. Teague threw for 93 yards, one touchdown and rushed for 54 yards adding another touchdown. At this point in time he has several options ahead of him but schools like Clemson, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Florida, and Miami are all making a strong push for him. Allen on the other hand added 54 yards and two scores on only nine carries. Allen, a Tennessee commitment, stays firm on his commitment to play defensive line for the Volunteers, but has been receiving a lot of interest from LSU about playing fullback.
