With monster performances the first week, it was all about the running backs for Florida State commits and targets. Will it be the same story the second week or did the other position players step up? Find out in this week's high school recap below.

  • It was the Lorenzo Lingard show in University's 63-26 beat down of New Smyrna Beach. The 2018 running back target finished the night with 232 yards on just 14 carries. He had touchdown runs of 49, 46, 45, 28, and 20 yards.
  • Khalan Laborn picked up where he left off last week with two touchdowns in Bishop Sullivan's 41-6 win over Bishop Ireton. Laborn, a 2017 running back commit, returned a punt 40 yards for a score and also punched in a score from two yards out.
  • Where as the other running backs had great nights, it was a different story for 2017 running back commit, Zaquandre White. White and North Fort Myers struggled against Fort Myers in the 37-16 loss. White finished the night with 60 rushing yards and 2 fumbles. White played on both sides of the ball and returned kicks also in the game.
  • Cam Akers, a top 2017 running back target, played quarterback in Clinton's 28-21 victory over Brandon. Akers was 6 of 17 passing, for 113 yards and two touchdown passes. He threw one interception and also picked off a pass on defense.
  • Florida State's two 2017 quarterback commits struggled in their team's losses. James Blackman threw for one touchdown in Glades Central's 16-13 loss to Palm Beach Lakes and Bailey Hockman threw for 56 yards and two interceptions in McEachern's 16-13 loss to Grayson.
  • If you haven't seen it yet, check out the sick catch, 2017 commit D.J. Myatthews pulled off over the weekend in Trinity's 34-0 shut out over Columbia.
  • And last, but certainly not least, 2017 defensive tackle stud, Cory Durden, pulled off the strip, scoop, and score in Newberry's 35-7 win over Eastside. Durden returned the fumble 60 yards for the touchdown.

That's all we have for this week, if you know of any other stats or results, let us know in the comments. As always, check back each week for updates on #Tribe17 and the future.
