BC commits post big wins
Playoffs are starting all over the country and that's a big change with bigger implications but it's the same old thing for running back Akeel Lynch who continues to put up huge numbers.
Lynch, who is committed to Boston College but is looking at Penn State, Arkansas and others, rushed for 208 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries and he caught two passes for 68 yards in Athol Springs (N.Y.) St. Francis' 53-8 victory over Bishop Timon-St. Jude.
The other Boston College pledge who's putting up huge numbers this season is athlete Dan Crimmins and nothing changed with him, either. Crimmins finished with eight catches for 135 yards and three touchdowns in a 41-0 win over Garfield.
There were many other winners as well. Offensive lineman Jim Cashman and Haddonfield (N.J.) Memorial continue to cruise with a 56-8 win over Willingboro. Christchurch, Va., and offensive tackle Win Homer remain undefeated with a 41-8 win over Blue Ridge.
Cornerback Donovan Henry helped West Roxbury (Mass.) Catholic Memorial to a 33-11 victory over Xaverian where Penn State commit Armani Reeves had a 92-yard touchdown run and quarterback A.J. Doyle had three touchdown passes and rushed for another score.
Linebacker Tim Joy and his Chelmsford, Mass., squad downed Tewksbury, 35-16, and safety Justin Simmons and his Stuart (Fla.) Martin County club defeated Jensen Beach, 38-3, in the regular-season finale.
Boston College's newest commit, linebacker Bobby Wolford, helped Jacksonville (Fla.) Bishop Kenny past West Nassau, 21-10, to remain undefeated. One-loss Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood and offensive lineman Frank Taylor beat Monsignor Bonner, 42-14.
It didn't go as well for others. Tight end Sam Grant and Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward lost to Cleveland St. Ignatius, 20-17, by the same score for the second time in three weeks. Unfortunately for Grant, this last defeat was in the playoffs.
Defensive end Malachi Moore and his Sparta (N.J.) Pope John squad lost to Red Bank Catholic, 42-6, in the playoffs. Linebacker Steven Daniels and Worcester (Mass.) Academy dropped a 31-6 decision to Cushing Academy.
Wide receiver Harrison Jackson and his Purcellville (Va.) Loudoun County squad finished the season at 3-7. Linebacker Mike Strizak and his powerhouse Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep team, No. 1 nationally in many polls, start the playoffs this weekend against Paramus Catholic.
