Don Norton couldn’t stop raving about the young man that he feels, and certainly played like on Friday, is the best football player in the area.
That’s “No. 7″ as Norton said, Delta Kings senior Cutrell Haywood, who had a game-high 13 catches for 187 yards and touchdown grabs of 10 and 8 yards in Stagg’s 46-35 SJAA win over McNair. Plus, Haywood had two direct-snap touchdown runs, both of 4 yards, and a fumble recovery and long return on defense.
Not to mention, being a lockdown cornerback.
For that, Haywood (one of the most prolific receivers in the state), is my Player of the Game for Week 8.
JALEND DINWIDDIE (Stagg LB, senior)
Dinwiddie, who led the Sac-Joaquin Section with 117 total tackles entering Friday, wreaked havoc on defense and blocked two punts for Stagg. The second one came in the fourth quarter and set up Lee Webb’s TD run.
LEE WEBB (Stagg RB)
Webb’s TD run was of 18 yards, capping his game-high 96 rushing yard performance.
TA’VEONE TAYLOR (Stagg, senior)
Taylor not only had a 9-yard TD reception from QB Stephon Favela, but hauled in a broken up pass for a long pick-six interception return for a touchdown.
ULICES CONTRERAS (Stagg DB, junior)
That pick six was initiated by Contreras, who added an interception of his own in the second quarter.
ANDREW HEM (McNair WR, sophomore)
What a day for the underclassman, who had seven catches for 134 yards, including an early 70-yard TD reception from Gabriel Lopez.
