Three-star Athlete Major Culbert (6-0, 190, 4.5) from Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne gave it his all a week ago Friday in a tough loss to Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey 15-7. It was apparent to all who were in attendance that he left it all on the field.
"Major rushed for 117 yards," Narbonne coach Craig Armstrong said. "All but five of them were in the second half."
"Our quarterback was hurt so we had to scrap our spread offense and go back to the I in the second half," Armstrong said. "We pretty much pitched the ball out to Major and let him go."

"On defense Major played safety and had nine tackles," Armstrong said. "That game was pretty much the Major and Stafon show."
The Stafon who Armstrong is alluding to is none other than five-star prospect Stafon Johnson.
Culbert has been getting a lot of phone calls since September 1st. Armstrong thinks there is a front-runner for the services of his talented athlete.
"Don't be surprised if Nebraska lands him," Armstrong said. "The Huskers have been on Major like white on rice."
"Major already tripped to Nebraska and he liked it a lot," Armstrong said. "The Huskers had a great game plan getting him to visit early."
"Even the fans got into the act," Armstrong said. "They started chanting Major Culbert, Major Culbert over and over. Major was very pleased."
Armstrong thinks the reason that Culbert hasn't committed yet is because he wants to take a few more visits.
"Oregon definitely wants him to visit," Armstrong said. "I think ASU and UCLA are also trying to get visits."
Culbert and his Narbonne teammates will try to rebound tonight when they hook-up against Los Angeles (Calif.) Jefferson.
As a junior, Culbert earned all-league and second-team all-area honors after rushing for 1,116 yards for 12 touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball, Culbert racked up approximately 90 tackles, seven sacks, three fumble recoveries and two interceptions.
