I started the season with a MIAA Friday night lights matchup between the Cardinals and Cougars. We had a pretty even game up until the late 2nd quarter, it stayed close until after halftime when Calvert Hall started to pull away. The game ended in a 26-0 CHC win. Today we are highlighting the players who had the biggest impact on both sidelines.
Asuquo is a player we were introduced to in small spirts last season as he backed up the senior backfield duo. Even though he didn’t get many carries last season he started this season with a veteran performance; showing that his glimpses were the real deal. He’s agile between the tackles and able to maneuver his way through traffic to find open field. He bounced off arm tackles and showed some homerun acceleration to take it in for a score for CHC’s first touchdown.
Dawkins name was familiar by the end of the night. He had a few TFL’s a sack and was in a lot of gang tackles. The big guy even got to show his ball carrying after catching a squib kick on special teams. He has good size and stops ball carriers in their tracks when he makes contact.
We saw Baldwin put some solid strong safety play on display in this first game. He came downhill and made tackles for very short gains in the run game and laid out for CHC’s first interception in the first half. He showed impressive change of direction and concentration to bring in his first INT of the season. This prospect has been on the radar and on the rise since his freshmen season with the cardinals.
Scott is a dangerous part of Mt.Carmel’s offense, his performance makes me look forward to watching him play again soon. He runs with aggression and makes it his duty to fall forward. He has the speed to beat the defense around the edge and the power to push the pile. He showed his power and grit multiple times during this game; it looked like he’d be stopped for a short gain, and he’d pop out of the other end or carry the pile for another few yards. At 5’10 200lbs he can be a hassle in 1-on-1 situations.
Greene had an electric 2023 debut with a pick six and a handful of tackles. Greene is coming off a solid offseason, where he won DB MVP at the IAmAthlete winter showcase. Late in the offseason he landed his first D1 offer from Boston college. From his performance Friday night BC should be excited for what’s to come for Greene, while other programs need to use this as an alert to put him on the recruiting board. Grrene’s pick six was the dagger in the coffin for CHC.
This sophomore plays with a chip on his shoulder, he was consistently dominant through the game. He had a fair share of pancakes and created some wide running lanes off of his blocks. He was quick off the ball and got his hips turned and moved defenders with ease, most importantly he finished his blocks regardless of if the ball was going the opposite direction. Wilson has a mean streak and is exciting to watch.
