Tommy DeVito’s senior season started slowly. Don Bosco played three nationally ranked opponents to begin the year; the team lost all three of those games.
On Friday, Bosco played its second straight in state opponent and recorded its second straight win, a 24-7 victory over Delbarton.
DeVito completed 18 of 24 passes in the game for 213 yards. He also threw for two touchdowns.
Don Bosco’s momentum will be put to the test next week when DeVito’s squad takes on the top rated private school in the state, St. Joseph.
In Massachusetts, everything has come easy for running back Ifeatu Melifonwu and his Grafton Memorial team so far this season. Grafton is a perfect 4-0 following a 35-0 demolition of Southbridge Friday night. The team has won every one of its games by at least 20 points.
Against Southbridge, Melifonwu scored three touchdowns. Two of the scores came on plays where Grafton was in the wildcat formation. Melifonwu has scored eight TD’s in his last three games.
This week on Fizz Radio, SU 2017 defensive end commit Jonathan Kingsley told us that he transferred to St. Frances Academy in Baltimore to play against better opponents.
St. Frances defeated Calvert Hall 14-0 Friday. Calvert Hall came into the game averaging 37 points per contest. Friday’s win marks the second time this season that Kingsley and the St. Frances defense have shut out an opponent. So much for stiffer competition…
In Connecticut, Orange commit and Bloomfield receiver Russell Thompson-Bishop caught a two-point conversion in a 32-7 beat down of Tolland.
SU linebacker commit Nadarius Fagan’s Southridge team shutout South Dade 13-0 Friday. The win marks the third shutout of the season for Southridge.
