High school highlights -- Oct. 14
By Mason Kelley
ESPN 300 DL Elijah Qualls was among the UW commits with impressive performances this week.
Recapping the weekend's prime-time performances from Washington's 2013 recruiting class:
Kevin King (Oakland, Calif./Bishop O'Dowd): The cornerback commit played in his first game since he suffered a concussion Sept. 14 and contributed right away. He entered Bishop O'Dowd's 34-20 win over Castro Valley (Calif.) at quarterback in the second quarter and threw two touchdown passes and rushed for another score. He completed 4 of 9 passes for 89 yards and rushed for 47 yards on four carries.
Darrell Daniels (Oakley, Calif./Freedom): The receiver continues to contribute in a variety of ways for the Falcons, scoring a 38-yard rushing touchdown and a catching a 14-yard touchdown pass. He had six catches for 109 yards in Freedom's 49-48 win over Pittsburg (Calif.) and sealed the win by blocking a PAT late in the game.
Troy Williams (Harbor City, Calif./Narbonne): Williams helped keep the Gauchos' record unblemished, completing 10 of 17 passes for 122 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions during a 54-7 win over Wilmington (Calif.) Banning.
Elijah Qualls (Petaluma, Calif./Casa Grande): The defensive lineman piled up 11 tackles and a sack on defense during Casa Grande's 28-7 loss to Rohnert Park (Calif.) Rancho Cotate. Qualls also contributed on offense, rushing for 31 yards on 10 carries. He also caught two passes for 18 yards. He rounded out his performance with a blocked punt and field goal.
Sean Constantine (Bellevue, Wash./Bellevue): Constantine helped Washington's top-ranked Class 3A team knock off No. 2 Snoqualmie (Wash.) Mount Si, 49-10, but his night was cut short when he suffered a broken bone in his forearm. He is expected to miss two to three weeks, but the linebacker is expected to be able to wear a cast and return for the playoffs.
Cameron Van Winkle (Snoqualmie, Wash./Mount Si): The kicker produced the Wildcats' first points during a 49-10 loss to Bellevue (Wash.), hitting a 35-yard field goal. He also made a PAT and showed off his powerful leg when he knocked the opening kickoff through the uprights.
