The combination of brothers Golden Tate, sophomore wide receiver at Notre Dame, and Wesley Tate, senior running back at Hendersonville-Pope John Paul was impressive this weekend. Golden Tate put up big numbers in the Irish win over Michigan by hauling in 127 receiving yards and scoring one touchdown on Saturday. The day before Tate's younger brother, Wesley Tate, helped his team to a 20-14 victory with 198 yards on 31 carries. Several schools are beginning to turn their eye on the younger Tate and he is giving them good reason.
Zach Rogers, 6-1, 170 pound wide receiver and his Nashville-David Lipscomb team rolled to another victory this Friday with a 43-19 victory that included a 30 point second quarter. The Nashville-David Lipscomb Mustangs racked up 287 yards on the ground including 145 from Harrison Daniel. Three star wide receiver, and Tennessee commitment, Rogers caught five passes for 59 years and one touchdown.
The Patriots of Paris-Henry County kept the momentum rolling with a ground attack that racked up 383 total yards. The Patriots led by four star quarterback Marsalis Teague, 5-10, 175 pounds and fullback Dominque Allen, 6-0, 250 pounds combined for 239 yards. Teague, who lists Florida and Miami in dead heat, showed off his legs with 160 yards rushing and three touchdowns on just five carries. Allen added one touchdown and rushed for 79 yards on seven carries.
The Mustangs from Germantown-Houston mounted an impressive win over Memphis-Frayser 61-14. Germantown-Houston was led by dual threat quarterback Nathan Jolley, 6-2, 200 pounds, who was six for nine with 161 yards and four touchdowns, in the victory. Also a big game put in by wide receiver Nick Nelms, 5-11, 215 pounds who hauled in a 33 yard touchdown.
Marlon Brown, 6-5, 205 pound wide receiver showed why he is the number prospect in the state this week. Brown hauled in 185 yards on 11 catches and two touchdowns. Brown continues to rack up points in early season with six touchdowns and ten receptions for 204 yards. Keep in mind he is doing this even though every team is playing double coverage against him.
