As previously mentioned, Carson (Calif.) receiver Darreus Rogers put on a show last Friday night against a very talented Long Beach Poly (Calif.) defense. He committed early to USC but is still hearing from schools from all over the country and said he's keeping all his options open right now. Rogers was simply spectacular against the Jackrabbits over the weekend finishing the game with 12 catches for 211 yards and two touchdowns and saw nothing but double and sometimes even triple coverage with a linebacker shading over and safety playing over the top. "My goal tonight was to prove you can't man me up one on one," Rogers said after the game. "I heard that Poly has never double teamed a receiver before and tonight, they had three guys on me so that's a huge compliment to me. When I see a double team, it just makes me push harder and I love the challenge."
