Another week another 200 plus yard rushing game for Moe Neal. SU’s 2016 H-back commit ran for 236 yards and three touchdowns en route to his Forestview (NC) team’s 38-11 win over Stuart Cramer (NC) Friday night.
Neal surpassed the 4,000-yard mark for his high school career in the game. Through six games this season the senior has rushed for 906 yards and twelve touchdowns. That’s good for a whopping 6.97 yards per carry.
A future running back trio of Jordan Fredericks, Dontae Strickland and Moe Neal looks pretty good right about now…
In New Jersey, Sadiq Palmer helped his Red Bank Regional team move to 4-0 for the first time in over a decade. Syracuse’s only 2016 receiver rushed for a touchdown as RBR knocked off Neptune (NJ) 28-7. Early in the game Red Bank Regional quarterback Jack Navitsky found Palmer on a key 3rd and eleven play which led to a touchdown.
Down in Florida, Scoop Bradshaw’s Plant team bounced back with a 40-17 victory over previously undefeated Wharton (FL). Bradshaw, a cornerback, and the rest of the Plant defense held Wharton to just six points in the second half. Plant has not lost a district game since 2004.
In the class of 2017, Orange linebacker commit Isaiah McDuffie scored three touchdowns as Bennett (NY) defeated Cleveland Hill (NY) 38-6. McDuffie, who also plays running back for Bennett, scored on touchdown runs of 69 and 53 yards in the game. On defense, the linebacker recovered a fumble and returned it 51 yards to break a 6-6 tie in the game.
In one final recruiting note, Tim Lester used Syracuse’s bye week to do some quarterback scouting. The offensive coordinator traveled to Louisiana to look at 2016 dual threat quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. Lester was also in Tennessee scouting 2016 Chattanooga quarterback commit Zack Weatherly.
