Oregon commits: High School Highlights
By Brandon P. Oliver
Future Duck Matt Wogan did it all on Friday, nailing field goals of 48 and 56 yards while averaging 48 yards per punt.
If there are still questions about its recruiting class, Oregon's commits are doing their best to prove the Ducks' coaching staff knows best.
Halfway through their senior seasons, Oregon's 2013 recruiting class is showing that the talent coming into Eugene won't be stopping any time soon.
Here are the statistics and results from their games over the weekend.
Star of the week:
Matt Wogan (Indian Trail, NC/Porter Ridge)
Like long snappers, kickers usually don't receive recognition unless it's for the wrong reasons. We're going to flip the script and recognize a kicker for what he did right.
Wogan did his part in Porter Ridge's 69-0 win on Friday night. The No. 4 kicker in the country was perfect on the night, recording touchbacks on each of his 12 kickoffs. Wogan was 9-for-9 on extra points and 2-for-2 on field goals. His field goals were perhaps the most impressive part of the night, as he hit from 43 and 56 yards. For good measure, Wogan added a 48-yard average on his three punts. Porter Ridge is now 6-0 on the year.
Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha)
After compiling "only" 173 yards last week, the No. 104 player in the ESPN 150 got his groove back on Friday night. In one half of action, the four-star Tyner ran for 311 yards on just 15 carries.
The No. 11 running back in the country ran for five touchdowns (5, 7, 93, 30, 28) -- the third time he has had five or more scores in a game this year. On the year, Tyner has rushed for 1,971 yards and 26 touchdowns. He also has two receptions for 34 yards and another score. The No. 3 team in Oregon, Aloha is now 6-0 on the year.
Tyrell Robinson (San Diego, Calif./Lincoln)-
The versatile Robinson continued his standout season in leading Lincoln to a 28-21 win over Mira Mesa. Robinson had two catches for 39 yards and a touchdown on offense. On defense, he showed how valuable and versatile can be as he totaled 12 tackles, two sacks and an interception at linebacker. Lincoln is now 4-2 on the year.
Don't forget about them:
Chris Seisay (American Canyon, Calif./American Canyon)
Seisay did everything he could to help AC avoid an upset loss to Vallejo (Calif.). Unfortunately for the 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete, it wasn't enough as the Wolves fell, 33-28. Seisay only made one catch, but he made the most of it, going 85 yards for a touchdown.
Like Robinson, Seisay is bound for the defensive side of the ball in Eugene. He had two passes defended and a team-leading 12 tackles on the night. American Canyon is now 5-1 on the year.
Darren Carrington (San Diego, Calif./Horizon)
The No. 42 player in California and his Horizon squad couldn't get past Santa Fe Christian on Saturday in a 27-7 loss. Carrington had three catches and a touchdown in the losing effort. For the season, Carrington has 22 catches for 387 yards and five touchdowns.
Tyree Robinson (San Diego, Calif./Lincoln)
Not to be outdone by his twin brother, Tyrell, Tyree Robinson had two interceptions in Lincoln's win over Mira Mesa (Calif.)
John Mundt (Modesto, Calif./Central Catholic)
Mundt continued his hot streak with two catches for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 55-15 victory. Mundt has 18 catches for 236 yards and four touchdowns on the year. On defense, Mundt has 17 tackles and seven sacks. Central Catholic is now 5-2.
Alex Redmond (Los Alamitos, Calif./Los Alamitos)
Redmond and the Griffins rolled to a 46-0 win on Thursday night, improving their record to 5-1.
Doug Brenner (Portland, Ore./Jesuit)
Brenner helped guide the Crusaders to a 42-7 win over Westview. The No. 4 Crusaders are now 5-1.
Evan Voeller (West Linn, Ore./West Linn)
Voeller once again sat out with an injured shoulder as the Lions fell 56-49 to Clackamas. West Linn is now 2-4 on the year.
Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas, DeSoto)
The No. 1 team in Texas and nationally ranked DeSoto had a bye.
