Mastery QB Mason Garnett with a unique pregame look.

Upon arrival at Ben Johnson Memorial Stadium in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, I noticed several young men wearing Mastery North Charter football jerseys but in civilian clothes on the Pumas sideline. When I went over to head coach John Davidson to make sure I had an updated roster, he quickly grabbed the roster from me and crossed out the numbers 4,5 and 6. I had seen Mastery a few weeks ago and those three numbers had impacted the game.

Number 4- Suhail Gillard was the leading rusher; 5- Justin Earl-Porter the leading receiver; and 6-Jeremiah Edrise-Porter was the quarterback.

Davidson was hoping for some of his younger players to step up but knew it would be a tough task against Salesianum High School from Wilmington, Delaware. Last year the Sallies made it all the way to their classification’ss State Championship Game only to lose to Sussex Central. The Pumas then found out why after being thumped 35-0.

Lincoln High School improved to 5-1 by beating Jules Mastbaum High School, 22-6, in a game that featured only 9 passes out of 77 total offensive plays. Lincoln ran 34 times for 91 yards while Mastbaum was more successful in a losing cause, busting 34-170 for an average of 5 yards per carry.

Kyle McCord had a night!

Saint Joe’s Prep and Ohio State-bound QB Kyle McCord wanted his squad to get off to a quick start.

“I wanted us to start fast and once we started I wanted to keep laying it on,” he said.

Well, he sure did just that with an impressive first half by throwing the ball 19 times and completing 13 for 266 yards and 3 TD’s.  McCord and head coach Tim Roken both praised the Prep’s offensive line.

Roken said “We were a little sloppy at times being on the road the last three weeks, so we wanted to clean up a few things and the offensive line was one of them.”
