After a bye week, 2021 Iowa Football verbal commitment Joey Labas showed no rust Friday. The quarterback led his Brecksville-Broadview Heights (OH) High squad to a 49-33 victory against Oregon (OH) Clay High.
Labas tossed touchdown passes of 45 and 23 yards and rushed 42 for another score. The fifth-seeded Bees (6-1) advanced to face No. 13 Barbeton (3-5), a 21-14 upset winner against No. 4 St. John’s Jesuit.
Labas ended up completing 24 of 30 passes for 314 yards and the two aerial scores.
Bellevue (NE) West High receiver Keagan Johnson continued his fabulous senior season on Thursday during a 56-28 victory against Columbus. He caught 13 passes for 255 yards with five of those grabs going for 20 or more. He scored a touchdown through the air and added an 8-yard rushing score.
Tampa (FL) Gaither High rolled to a 56-0 victory against the Land O’Lakes Gators Friday night. Jordan Oladokun contributed from all over the field. The Hawkeye cornerback pledge intercepted a pass but also caught three balls for 43 yards and a touchdown, threw a 21-yard scoring pass, and returned two punts for 44 yards.
Blue Springs (MO) High bounced back from a 13-0 deficit for a 28-13 victory against rival Blue Springs South Friday night. The Wildcats were scheduled to play Kansas City Rockhurst next week.
Iowa offensive line commitment Beau Stephens helped pave the way for their win against South during which Blue Springs racked up 19 first downs.
You can watch him serve up some pancakes under the lights in these highlights:
Eden Prairie (MN) High defensive end Justice Sullivan sat out Friday’s 52-0 victory against Shakopee. He was recovering from an injured ankle.
That was the extent of performances from Iowa pledges this week. The in-state commits all enjoyed first-round playoff byes and Illinois has moved its football season to the Spring.
