Jennings provides Blaze with high hopes

Blackman Blaze Football

Smyrna (Tenn.) at Blackman (Tenn.)


Blackman is led by junior quarterback Jauan Jennings. The 6-foot-4 passer is a duel-threat and is one of the highest prizes coming out of the Volunteer State in 2015. Jennings holds offers from Ohio State, Vanderbilt and Auburn. Antonio Allen can play full back and linebacker for the Blaze and at 6-foot-2, 220-pounds holds offers from Appalachian State, Middle Tennessee State and UAB.


Senior quarterback Matt Rodell and 6-foot-4, 190-pound wideout Darrell Haralson will visit the 8-2 Blackman Blaze hoping to find production against a defense that has surrendered just 13.1 points per game over the course of the season. Rodell has completed 76 of 140 attempts and totaled 1,117 yards and 10 touchdowns. Haralson has turned 17 receptions into 366 yards and five scores this season. The workhorse of the Bulldogs is running back Ladarius Summers. The explosive ball carrier has rushed for 1,188 yards and 15 touchdowns this season. Blackman topped Smyrna 42-12 last season.


Provine (Miss.) at Brandon (Miss.)


Brandon playmakers Mikie Williams and Devin Wilson each hauled in a pair of touchdowns from junior quarterback Gardner Minshew in Brandon’s 41-21 win over Jim Hill (Miss.) last Friday. Minshew has been phenomenal this season and has eclipsed 2,145 yards with 20 touchdowns while throwing only three interceptions. Wilson has paced the Bulldogs by running in six of their 22 rushing scores this season.


Provine is led by its own junior quarterback Cameron Bolton. The dual-threat passer has ran in 10 Rams touchdowns this season.


Rock Hill (S.C.) at Northwestern (S.C.)


Northwestern quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 24 of 37 passes for 365 yards and four touchdowns and ran for two more scores in the Trojans’ 63-18 win over Nation Ford (S.C.) last Friday. Junior Dupree Hart caught seven passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns and Quadarius Fair hauled in six passes for 97 yards.


Rock Hill is led by its running back Justin Stokes, who gained 138 yards on 20 carries last week and ran in two second-half touchdowns in the Bearcats’ 27-7 win over Lancaster (S.C.).


University-Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) at Miami Central (Fla.)


Five-star running junior University running back Jordan Scarlett fueled the Suns with two first-quarter scores including an 80-yard touchdown run in its 49-7 win over Islands Coast (Fla.) last Friday. Auburn-commit Sean White found Sam Bruce for a 20-yard touchdown reception and Bruce added 57-yard punt return for a score. White added a rushing touchdown and a 43-yard strike to Chris Taylor in the rout.


Miami Central comes off a bye week, but in the week prior; Central outgained Carol City (Fla.) 439 to 224 and grabbed a 48-18 win. Miami-commit Joseph Yearby ran for 212 yards and three touchdowns and also tossed a 51-yard touchdown pass in the win. Florida-commit Dalvin Cook rushed for 108 yards and two scores.


Selma (Ala.) at Spanish Fort (Ala.)


Undefeated (10-0) Spanish Fort debuted in the CSS High School Football Southeastern Top 25 Poll this week at No. 25. Last Friday, Trey Shabel scored a 21-yard touchdown to give the Toros a 7-0 lead before they rolled to a 40-3 win over Mobile Christian (Ala.). In the second half, the Spanish Fort defense held Mobile Christian to minus 24 yards on 15 run attempts and three incomplete passes in three pass attempts.


Selma visits Spanish Fort for the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs with a 7-3 record and is led by powerful running back Cinque Coles. Coles and running mate Charvis Woods fueled the Saints to 275 yards rushing and a 54-14 win over Ellwood Christian (Ala.) last Friday.
