Syracuse Football: Catching Up With the Commits - DeVante McFarlane is Good at Football

It's Monday, so let's take a look at how all of the future Orangemen out there played this weekend.

Ashton Broyld, Tyree Smallwood and Milford Academy are now 4-0 after defeating Wagner 38-21 yesterday.  Stats aren't available for that game yet, but numbers from the game against Lehigh on the 4th are avialable.  Smallwood sat out again due to injury, but Broyld played fairly well, completing 9-of-18 passes for 83 yards and a touchdown, and 7 carries for 37 yards in the 26-21 win.  

Christian Brothers Academy (1-1) lost a tough one to Massachusetts state champions Mansfield, 31-26.  Despite the loss, reports are that Ben Barrett was pretty dominant at offensive tackle.  Another player of note is quarterback Cameron MacPherson who completed 17-of-34 passes for 205 yards and 2 TDs, and added another touchdown on the ground. Cameron is Macky MacPherson's little brother.  

Down on Staten Island, star receiver Alvin Cornelius did not have a huge game offensively, but was still a key cog in the Tottenville Pirates' (1-0) 34-16 victory over Thomas Jefferson.  Cornelius was held to one reception for 11 yards, largely due to a defensive game plan centered around stopping him.  They couldn't, however, prevent Alvin from stepping up and shining on defense.  He intercepted two passes on the day, returning one for a key touchdown.  

You don't see stat lines like this too often.  Half Hollow Hills West (1-0) running back DeVante McFarlane ran the ball 17 times for 277 yards and 4 touchdowns, and threw for an additional touchdown in a 34-14 win over Smithtown West.  

Harold Brantley and Hershey HS (2-0) continue to roll with a dominating 51-14 win over Elizabethtown yesterday. Brantley carried the ball 8 times for 47 yards, including a 20 yard touchdown run, and also blocked a punt.  

Ben Lewis didn't do much offensively for the Middletown Knights (2-0) on Friday, but he was still very effective on defense and special teams.  He recorded 5 tackles and an interception, and returned a punt for 50 yards and a touchdown.  The Knights railroaded the Brunswick Railroaders 34-3.  

Julian Whigham and William T. Dwyer HS (1-1) played two games this week.  The first was a nationally televised ESPN affair, which Dwyer lost to Glades Central 24-10, despite two interceptions by Whigham.  Dwyer rebounded with a 32-8 win over Jupiter on Saturday.

(Edit:  Whigham picked up another two interceptions against Jupiter.  h/t ejz555).

Darius Parson and Woodbridge HS fell to 0-2 with a 32-0 loss to Broad Run.  Parson ran the ball 5 times for 16 yards, recorded 8 tackles on defense, and blocked a field goal.

(Edit: Found stats for Poncho Barnwell/East HS.  h/t Nate44):

Poncho Barnwell had another strong performance, recording 12 tackles and 2 sacks in East's 30-18 win over Wilson. East is now 2-0 on the season.
