Syracuse quarterback commit Lindsey Scott had a week for the ages. The 2016 QB won Louisiana’s Gatorade Player of the Year award Thursday and then led his Zachary team to the state championship game Saturday.
Scott rushed for 265 yards and three touchdowns in Zachary’s 41-27 win over Parkway. He also had an interception in the game.
Zachary now faces off against John Ehret in the state championship game this weekend.
In Pennsylvania, Syracuse 2016 offensive line commit Noel Brouse’s Parkland team also advanced to a state championship game with a 16-13 win over La Salle College high school Saturday.
Parkland did not lead in the game until the final play, a four-yard overtime touchdown run from quarterback Devante Cross.
Brouse’s team takes on Upper Dublin in the state championship game this weekend.
While two SU commits advanced to title games, three other 2016 commits were on the losing end of state championship games this past weekend.
In New Jersey, 2016 receiver commit Sadiq Palmer’s Red Bank Regional team lost its first game of the year in the state final to Rumson-Fair Haven 21-0 Saturday.
Palmer had a 34-yard run and a 21-yard catch on an RBR third quarter drive, but that was not enough to get his team back into the game. Red Bank Regional turned the ball over on downs later on in the possession.
Also in New Jersey, Syracuse 2016 defensive commits Jamal Holloway and Dymelle Parker lost in the state title game as well.
Their Camden team fell to Delsea 21-12 Saturday. Delsea has won four state championships in a row.
