High School Football: Hawkins vs Dorsey

Remember the face of Greg Johnson.  The Senior Athlete has committed to Arizona and will be playing football on Sundays in the NFL.  The kid is a true stud and big time play-maker.  Image by PopScout Scouting Services.

Thursday night proved that you don’t have to leave the hood to make an impact on the football field and get that elusive College Scholarship.  That definitely was on display Thursday night as two top teams in the City Section came out and showed out. PopScout High School Thursday Night Football features Dorsey High vs Augustus F. Hawkins, played October 13, 2016.  Hawkins is the #22 team in the State of CA and proved that it’s definitely worthy of all recognition.  Talk about two very tough and well coached teams.  The game came down to the wire with Hawkins winning on a game ending field goal.  Execution at the end of the day you feel me.  I get tired just thinking about the tempo of the no huddle offense that Hawkins employs…lol.

Dorsey Class of 2019 Defensive End Kayvon Thibodeaux already has 7 major D1 offers…the kid is only a sophomore.  He showed his youth at times Thursday night, but came up with some big time plays as well.  Going to be great seeing his maturation in the next couple of years.  Image by PopScout Scouting Services.

This is what a 5 Star recruit looks like from the inner city of Los Angeles.  Class of 2017 Standout WR Joseph Lewis stands 6’2 and weighs 207lbs.  He has 31 major D1 offers including Alabama, Michigan, Oklahoma, and anyone else you can think of.  Image by PopScout Scouting Services.

There were scouts like Michigan, California, USC, Washington, and a few more on hand to check out the game and recruit some inner city soldiers.  It was great to see head coach Jim Harbaugh of Michigan and Clay Helton of USC on hand to see talent in the inner city  – kids showing true D1 skillsets.  Yep, that’s right, ladies and gentlemen, head coaches you feel me.  You know something is special when head coaches of Major D1 programs come out to evaluate for themselves.  At that point – forget about being on the radar- somebody’s getting scooped up. BTW…for those families spending money you don’t have on private schools, dealing with the hectic LA traffic, and the uncertainty of if your kid will actually play once he gets into the private school arena, you may want to stay at home and take a good look at Hawkins, Dorsey, Crenshaw, and LA High.  You can maximize your potential at any school if you’re the bomb – on and off the field that is.  Remember, the student is in front of Student Athlete for a reason.  You ‘gotta do what a baby gotta do’ in the classroom and things will pan out for you at the end of the day on the field.  Stop thinking you have to be at a private school to maximize your potential families.  But we all know you just want the best for your son/daughter.

Class of 2018 6’3 WR Jalen Hill is just a junior but is being looked at and offered by all the Major D1 schools across the country.  The stud made some big time catches  to ‘move the chains’ Thursday Night.  Image by PopScout Scouting Services.

Under the Radar Sports Media was out and about doing what they do best…providing exposure to teams and creating some buzz for those who may not have the means to do it for themselves.  Image by PopScout.

Take a look at the full game played Thursday night between Dorsey and Hawkins.  PopScout was on hand with the Wonder Pole getting a birds-eye view.  It came down to the wire with Hawkins executing their 2 minute drill and kicking the game winning field goal as time expired.  With Darius ‘Black’ Henderson pulling commentary duties as well as playing at historic Jackie Robinson Stadium, it doesn’t get any better than that.  Big time players, make big time plays, in big time games.  You saw that first hand Thursday night. As the homie Black would say…HELLO!

Become great at what you do.
