The first full week of high school football action has kicked off across most of the country with most high schools starting their season off this past weekend including all but three Tech commitments. While a few commitments saw their teams struggle in their season openers a couple of Jackets were standout performers for their teams.
Did Not Play:
Two secondary commitments in Buford cornerback Jalen Huff and Brother Martin (New Orleans, LA) safety Nick Turner did not play this weekend. Huff kicks off his season this upcoming weekend while Turner will have to wait until September 6th. Additionally, LB Jared Behrens out Woodgrove (Purcelville, VA) doesn’t kickoff his 2019 season until this upcoming weekend when they take on Loudon Valley.
No Stats Found:
CB Miles Brooks – Trinity Christian Academy (Jacksonville, FL): We couldn’t find any information on Brooks stats for himself but the Trinity Christian Academy Conquers got off to a rough start in 2019, losing to Columbia 38-7. The Conquers will need to bounce back next week as they face Godby High School out of Tallahassee, Florida.
