Friday Night Notes

Cameras were all over the state of Georgia Friday night and one was up in Virginia taking a look at some of the top prospects in action. We previewed the games in our Games of the Week feature Thursday and you will find out who stood out and how the prospects played right here.

Here are some quick notes on the prospects we saw Friday night.

Fayette County at Creekside

(This is the game I covered)

The top prospects involved in this game are Duke commitment Matt Daniels, FSU commitment Terrance Parks and Georgia commitment Brandon Boykin. Here are some notes on each prospect from Friday night.

Daniels: He is a big time hitter that puts himself in position to light guys up each play from his safety position. He really attacks the ball carrier, but plays within himself at the same time. He had some huge hits and an interception last night.

At running back, he runs touch inside. He has a thin frame right now, but he runs with power behind his pads. He showed good bounce in his step, but did not break the long run Friday night.

Parks: Great size is something you recognize right off the bat. He looks the part, but he did not really have the chance to play the part. Fayette County is a running team and Parks was playing corner, so he was not around the ball much.

He lined up at receiver a couple of times, but the ball was never thrown his way. Parks looks good in pads, but he was not a part of this game.

Boykin: Speed is what made the difference Friday night. He scored the first Tiger touchdown on a 39 yard run where he just beat guys to the corner and turned it up field. He made big play after big play last night when converting third and longs and fourth down conversions.

There was no doubt that he was the top prospect on that field last night. He did not get much action at cornerback, but his speed, athleticism and toughness showed from quarterback. He had over 100 yards rushing and he just seemed to step up and make a play each time Fayette County needed someone to.

A 2010 prospect to watch: Zach Amey for Creekside will be an athlete you hear about over the next few years. He plays running back and linebacker for the Seminoles. He showed very good power and agility Friday night. He is around 5-foot-11, 195-pounds right now.

Fayette County moved to 6-0 with a 28-0 win.
