Last week’s Foothill versus Silverado matchup delivered a solid performance by the Falcons in the rain. However, I immediately noticed collegiate prospects on both teams. Below, I detail five players whose next level traits stood out to me last Friday night.
Despite the loss,showed why the University of Nevada is excited to have him in the trenches next year. Jayland’s combination of next level power and range showed disrupting the point of attack last Friday night. Coaches noticed Jayland’s inside pass rush potential when he used both quickness and power to record multiple sacks versus Foothill. Be on the lookout for the Nevada commit to be one of the most productive interior defensive linemen this fall.
Travis Kenzevich is one of the most underrated defensive backs in Clark County. I was impressed with Travis’ next level abilities as he caused a turnover early on in last week’s game; Travis’ range and instincts showed reading and confidently picking off Silverado’s first deep ball attempt of the game on a fourth and long. Travis’ power, instincts and aggressiveness showed forcing a fumble in run defense. Look for coaches to make note of Travis’ versatility and slot him in as a hybrid safety at the next level.
jumped out to me right away with his size, quickness, and vision that gained a chunk play and brought Silverado’s offense out of the danger zone inside their own territory on the first drive of the game. I am surprised more coaches in states surrounding Nevada have not recruited Marcus. Marcus’ toughness, good balance, and strength show me he can handle all of the crowded runs up the middle at the next level. Expect his recruitment to heat up as Marcus continues to run over defenses for the rest of the season.
has been airing it out all over Nevada to start the 2023 season. The rising passer threw with good accuracy and anticipation while battling the elements last Friday night. Good mobility and athleticism got displayed scrambling for a long run in which Mason shook multiple defenders en route to a touchdown. I was impressed with Mason’s poise and good decision-making in the face of pressure. With over ten touchdowns and 1000 yards already this season, expect Mason to be a high riser on recruiters’ QB lists this fall.
Tarrell Mack-Lovely is on his way to more than his second offer after a hot start to the 2023 season. Natural instincts and burst as a runner get displayed exploding through the line and into the endzone with ease for the first rushing TD of game for Foothill. Good toughness showed in Tarrell’s finish that earned yards after contact for Foothill all night long. Coaches will be sure to notice his elusiveness and vision in space that kept Silverado slipping just as much as the rain did. Good route running, quickness, and strength showed easily separating from contact against Silverado’s physical secondary. Tarrell’s versatility displayed just in this game alone give him the chance to be a versatile playmaker at the next level.
