CARSON, Calif. -- It was a familiar feeling for Carson wide receiver Darreus Rogers on Friday night, walking off the field after suffering a defeat in the Los Angeles City Section championship game. Last season, the Colts were blitzed by Crenshaw and running back De'Anthony Thomas. This year, it was Narbonne and senior tailback Tray Boone that ran to a 48-32 victory.

But Rogers stood tall in defeat. Despite not being targeted in the first quarter, the senior receiver finished with 10 catches for 212 yards and two touchdowns to go along with two tackles and several punishing blocks.
