The Class of 2014 duo from Gardena Serra embraced the challenge, knowing that facing Washington quarterback commit Troy Williams and Cal receiver commit A.J. Richardson would be for the better. Yes, Narbonne emerged with a 22-9 victory, but Jackson and Dwight Williams more than held their own, showing why they’re two of the area’s most coveted 2014 recruits.

Serra limited the dynamic Troy Williams to only 175 passing yards and one touchdown, and held Richardson to only two receptions. If there were positives to draw from the loss, it was that Narbonne’s big-name players were contained. Offensive mistakes, though, turned out to decrease Serra’s chances of upsetting the CIF State bowl-game contender.
