Tukee Bowl Recap-

By Jeff Edgington

Jack Smith snuck around the edge one yard scoring with just under two minutes remaining and so went the host Thunder’s chancing of halting the skid against Mountain Pointe (6-0). Just like the last three years, bragging rights lay on Knox Road at the younger of the two schools.  Pride roll 28-14 behind an impressive Defense and a 14 point 4TH-quarter surge.

Smith, a Senior, moved in from the Midwest and didn’t know much about the significance of this one.

“They’ve talked about it all week, but Coach Vaughn emphasized it’s just another game. We try to downplay it, but it feels good to get another win.” added Smith with a grin.

The Pride struck first on an 11-yard Marcarius Blount scamper halfway through the opening frame. Desert Vista (5-2) responded quickly when quarterback Nick Thomas found receiver Raymond Figueroa in stride from 57 out.

A punt early in the second pinned the Pride deep in Desert Vista territory. Momentum built from there as Blount and Smith would matriculate down the field on a lengthy nine-minute drive. Smith found Ralph Roman from the 6 to give the visitors a 14-7 lead right before the break. After Alex Farina drove the Thunder down to potentially tie it he was intercepted by Kenny Churchwell for the first time turnover of the game.

Desert Vista tied the game late in the third quarter with another long pass, this time Smith hitting Keishaud White for a 35-yard gain that set up Lelon Dillard’s one-yard scoring run.

After that, Desert Vista managed just two first downs and Thomas was intercepted twice in the fourth quarter as Mountain Pointe’s defense took control.

“Turnovers killed us,” Desert Vista coach Dan Hinds said. “We were driving and two picks. We have to clean that up.”

Heading to the 4th Quarter tied at 14 the student bodies increased their volume, and the crowd noise brought the entire stadium to their feet. Mountain Pointe kept grinding out first downs behind a massive front line. Blount wore out the clock. One minute into the 4TH Smith found a wide-open Deon Lee, who is usually a linebacker, for the difference and a 21-14 don’t-look-back advantage.

But in the end the defense from the Pride was relentless all evening and it forced 3 Interceptions. 2 of which went to the sophomore Churchwell.

“They’re a good team,” Mountain Pointe coach Norris Vaughan said. “They’re big. They’re physical. But they hurt us on two bombs. We were in man coverage and they beat us. Other than that, I thought we shut them down.”

In a game played by teens and fueled by emotion Mountain Pointe didn’t turn-over the ball, didn’t commit a penalty, and never trailed.  Impressive.

SS– Who would you say contributes the most to you becoming a talented football player?

ZP– I think having good genes is very nice in the skill aspect of how a football player performs. However, I think the coaches that surround me and work with me no doubt have contributed the most to my progression as a player. From my strength coach who creates controlled chaos in the weight room, replicating the hype of a Friday night, and not letting us take any lift off … to my position coach, who happens to be the defensive coordinator. These coaches prepare my team and me the best they possibly could, giving us statistics, probabilities, formations most likely to be run, what they will do against us, and everything in between. With all this information, if studied right, it enables a person to play fast and with confidence. So if the strength and speed built in the weight room and the confidence and quickness from the mental part are combined, it allows me to be as talented as I can take it, and with my coaches’ motivation, will hopefully be very far.

SS– What drill, and please describe it if you can, do you feel right now is at the top of your daily priority list?

ZP– There are many drills during a two hour + practice, but the one I like the most and feel really helps me mentally and physically is the two-minute drill. We had switched it from the end of practice to the beginning, which just adds a lot more hype for that drill, and the drills after. I think it is at the top of my priorities because it incorporates all the smaller fundamental drills that have been worked on for so long. I also rank it high, because at the end of the day, a game is the most important thing throughout the week, and the two-minute drill is the closest thing to that and the excitement that comes along with it. We call it the two-minute drill, yet usually there are about 50 seconds on the clock and the ball may be at midfield or closer. The offense goes at a very high tempo and calls are being yelled out and people are running around like crazy, so it is a very good drill for all the players and coaches to get locked in and ready for the game, in the closest thing to a game situation.

SS– What player has influenced you the most to becoming the player you are today?

ZP– I don’t think I ever really had a player that I said I wanted to be like. I had a few favorite players like John Elway and Peyton Manning, but not a player I said I wanted to be. If I were to say I wanted to be like someone, it would have to be all the humble, honest, and hardworking players. There were a lot of players who I liked and wanted to play like in the sense of working hard, the way they interview, and overall play. However, I don’t think I could pin it down to any one player. I continue to find guys at high levels who stay humble and play hard, and those are the guys I would hope to be like.

SS– Growing up did you ever consider focusing on another sport more than football?

ZP– I started playing football about as early as one could get into a sport, so I have been through about every stage so far. Starting at the of six in flag football, transitioning to tackle ball, then finally heading to the “Friday Night Lights.” I played baseball all the way up until last year, as well as a few years of basketball sprinkled in here and there, but I don’t think it has ever crossed my mind to do anything other than football. I run track currently, and sometimes feel bad for the track coach, because even though I am committed and giving a lot of attention and time to his sport, he knows that football is what I do and if something comes up pertaining to that, football will always take priority.

SS– For the hundred-thousands of other high school football players out there, what is one lift in the weight room that is a must-do in order to set themselves apart from their competitors?

ZP– I am no strength expert, but I feel like the lift any high schooler has to put into his routine is the clean, whether that be power or hang. Bench is very good, but  have seen guys with huge arms and big bench numbers who can’t run or be explosive. Squat is also another great lift, but again I have seen kids with amazing squat numbers, and not be able to move around or explode. A lot of it also depends on form as some kids at lifting competitions squat a lot but can’t bend at all disabling them from moving very well. I do think that clean is the best main lift a person can do for football. It combines an aggressive pull with the arms and shoulders, and explosive jump or shooting of the legs, and a quick and powerful follow through leading into a front squat. I don’t think I have ever seen someone who can’t properly hang clean a good number and not move on the field. It is such an explosive movement that incorporates power and plyometrics. So if I were to start a workout routine, clean will definitely be at the top of my priorities.

SS – What artist and song gets you hyped 100% of the time just before competition? 

ZP– I listen to a variety of songs throughout the day, depending on how I’m feeling or what mindset I want to get into. I have, in a way, developed a routine though. After school whether I go home or stay in the locker room, I will usually listen to some older songs. Old songs as in DMX, old Lil Wayne, old Eminem, or just some football hype songs in general. As it gets closer to game time, though, I like to plug in my phone to the team speaker system and play some hype Christian rap songs. I play artists like Trip Lee, Lecrae, Derek Minor, KB, and Andy Mineo. At first I was thinking that there wasn’t going to be as much hype in the locker room if I played this new type of music, but I don’t think there was any drop off at all when I started playing it, and I think some guys even liked it more. That has encouraged me to play more of that type of music, plus, our coach likes it because he doesn’t have to worry about cussing or stuff of that nature.


Thanks again to Zack Pedersen and all of the high school athletes who dedicate a good amount of time to be successful in their sport!

SS– How long have you been playing football and what got you interested in playing?

ML– I’ve been playing football ever since I was 5, and I got so interested in playing football because my father talked about his favorite team the “New York Jets” all the time and it got me interested in the game, and I wanted to play it.
SS– What or who would you say contributes most to you becoming a talented football player?
ML– My father and my extended family Nolimit Hurricanes Organization and Team Delaware coached by Damon Daniels and Bo Hunter.
SS– What player has most influenced the player you are?
ML– Darrelle Revis because he came from a town just like Delaware and he wasn’t the highest recruit in the nation and his play style remind me of my own, I always loved him and looked up to him and learned new things from him. 
SS– Growing up, did you always want to be a CB or was there another position you wanted to play more?
ML– Growing up I always knew I wanted to play CB that was the first position a coach ever started me at and I already had a long body type that could go against a lot of receivers so  I fell in love with it and just kept excelling at the position.
SS– You’re a Tiger! If you got to choose your school mascot, what would it be?
ML– If I could choose any mascot it would have to be a lion just because they don’t fear anyone and they never give up and I always consider myself “lion hearted”. 
SS– The say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Are you an eggs or pancake sort of guy?
ML– I’m most definitely a pancake type of person I absolutely love pancakes and they never fail to fill me up.

Stars rivals NFL Draft- Crunching the Numbers

Stars! Ratings! Scouting! Representatives!

The sporting world is filled with ranking systems, scouts and reps telling you who the best players are. Rankings given to prep athletes. These rankings are sometimes given as young as junior high and stay with the athlete while they are growing up. While these rankings and opinions change, there is always going to be an end ranking. A star value given to that player after they leave college to pursue their NFL dreams. is well known for their in-depth scouting and analysis of high school and college athletes.  As stated in the article:

For the third straight year, publisher Geoff Ketchum found himself logging the entire NFL Draft, pick by pick, with the purpose of better understanding what’s working and what’s not working as it relates to developing players at the collegiate level.”

Geoff, along with many others, are tracking to see trends, and are bringing an answer to the long asked question: “Do 5-stars get drafted more than 2-stars?” Any sports fan will love to see the results!

USA Today ’15 NFL Draft ALL-USA Recaps

In 2012 Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin made noise in the NFL draft on who would go first. After the Colts stayed with the number one pick and took Luck, the Washington Redskins made a blockbuster trade to move up and take Griffin. This marked the last time two quarterbacks were taken in the first two picks, until now!

While there was some conversation on who the top picks would be, the a former American Family Insurance ALL-USA First Team member in Jameis Winston got that honor going to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers! Belonging to the Titans, the second pick was Marcus Mariota. While much remains to be seen from these two players, one thing the 2012 draft taught, this could change the course of the franchise for many years to come!

While Winston may have taken the attention by being selected first overall, the American Family Insurance ALL-USA alumni weren’t finished! Five more alumni were selected in the first round alone!

It’s exciting to see high school stars bloom into top NFL picks and USA Today takes a look at all of the American Family Insurance ALL-USA alumni who were drafted in this 2015 NFL draft! Check out the full list and breakdown here!

Derrick Jones’ perfect BallisLife Dunks

It was dubbed as the future Kentucky University feature game, however the biggest highlight from this weekend’s BallisLife All-American games came from a UNLV commit.

Posting a perfect 50 score for each of his three dunks, UNLV commit Derrick Jones dropped jaws and brought the crowd to their feet during the entire dunk contest.

A slight to his lack of invite to the McDonald’s All-American Game, Jones’ stated he has no doubt he would have won there too. “I don’t lose too many dunk contests. It’s what I do,” Jones said. He’s right. Just a month ago he was putting up perfect scores and blowing away fans at the American Family Insurance contest where he dunked over four people!

To read the full recap and see Derrick Jones’ dunks, check out Kami Mattioli’s article on Sporting News here.

You can Derrick’s ESPN 100 rank and full scout grade by going to his ESPN recruiting profile here.

Derrick Jones’ resume goes much further than his dunking abilities. He led a powerhouse Archbishop Carroll team that was ranked inside the USA Super 25 Basketball rankings most of the season. They lost a heartbreaking game in the AAA State finals to Neumann Goretti. For a ScoreStream game recap, you can check it out on our free app or go here.

Get excited college basketball fans, Derrick Jones will be putting up Top 10 plays all next season for you!
