Often times in these articles, a lot of the attention is placed on the offensive skills players. They put up the numbers and make the headlines. But let's start off this week with a FSU special teams commit.
2016 K commit, Logan Tyler, continues to show that he is not just a kicker. Tyler had 2 touchdowns in Nixa's 31-17 win over Republic. One of those was a 38 yard touchdown run. He also had 2 interceptions, one coming late in the game to seal the victory. He nailed a 42 yard field goal and had his lone punt, downed inside the 5. Tyler continues to show he is a Do Everything player.
Going with the special teams theme, stud 2016 DB commit, Levonta Taylor, returned a kickoff 65 yards for a score in Ocean Lakes 51-21 victory over Landstown. Taylor has all the making to be a star on the defensive side of the ball but also has the potential to start right away in the return game.
Florida State just might be the new Running Back U with recent success and the incoming commits. FSU 2017 RB Commit, Zaquandre White, enjoys putting up video game numbers as he scored 3 more times in North Ft Myers 44-41 win over Barron Collier. White rushed for 180 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. He also had 2 TD receptions.
2017 WR commit, DJ Matthews, came back from a knee injury and caught a 53 touchdown pass in Trinity's 32-22 win over Pine Forest.
2016 QB commit, Malik Henry, put on a showcase in Long Beach Poly's 70-3 beatdown of Millikan. Henry threw 5 touchdown passes in the win. Henry has been impressive since taking over the starting spot for Long Beach Poly.
That is all the stats we have this week. If you know of any additional info, let us know and we will try to add it to the article. Keep checking back each week for updates on #Tribe16 and the future.
