MISSION VIEJO, Calif. -- The state's top pro-style quarterback, K.J. Costello helped Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita Catholic hold off Los Angeles Dorsey, one of the toughest City Section squads, 33-13 on Friday night at Trabuco Hills High School.
I was impressed with...
Four-star wide receiver Dylan Crawford didn't have a big night as a pass catcher but he still left his mark, paving the way for some big runs with effective blocking on the edge. The Rivals250 prospect was not only willing to block, but also fiery when it came to the task. He said afterward he realizes receivers have to be well rounded at the next level and he has worked hard at making his presence felt even when the ball isn't in the air.
I was surprised by...
The stability and consistency of 2017 offensive lineman Brett Neilon was certainly noteworthy. Though he has only been playing football for two years, Neilon picked up the intricacies of the position quickly and has the versatility to slide to various positions on the line. He showed really good feet in pass protection at left tackle and also opened some wide holes throughout the night, proving why he has become such a commodity for college coaches in recent weeks.

It was good seeing former five-star running back Stafon JohnsonClick Here to view this Link. back on the Dorsey sideline helping coach his alma mater. Johnson, who went on to USCClick Here to view this Link., has plenty of wisdom to share.
