Big plays spark Brothers past Union-Endicott - Eagle News Online
Christian Brothers Academy football quarterback J.R. Zazzara and running back Deshawn Salter accounted for seven of CBA’s eight touchdowns in what would end up being a 56-32 blowout of the Union-Endicott Tigers in Friday night's Kickoff Classic opener at the Carrier Dome.
Zazzara threw for three touchdowns (two of which were to Salter) and ran for two more, before being replaced by back-up Joshua Brown with 4:50 left in the third quarter. Salter rushed for one score, returned a kickoff, and caught two touchdowns.
J.R. Zazzara, who was a Syracuse Lacrosse commit before deciding to play Quarterback for UB had himself one heck of a weekend as did Zach Abey
Spalding drops St. Mary's

“I think at the d-line we did a good job of getting penetration and getting off guys,” said St. Francis defensive lineman Jake Khoury. “Linebackers did a good job of flowing or filling to hit those guys when they came through the hole. (Defensive backs), they covered them like they were stuck on them like glue.”
Zach Nicholas was the only real threat for Mount Hebron but it was not enough.

Mount Hebron wide receiver Zach Nicholas stood out for the Vikings (0-1) but was contained by the Golden Bears defense led by senior linebacker Drequan Reed with nine tackles and two and a half sacks and sophomore cornerback Deandre House with three interceptions.
One of the other athletic prospects for UB, Ishmael Hargrove, took part in a game which looked like an episode of survivor.

Gilmour's game plan was hindered when senior captain Frank Grk and junior defensive stalwart Conrad Geis’ injuries during the week kept them sidelined. Things got worse midway during the first quarter when All-Ohioan senior OLB Parker Berzin was helped off the field with a knee injury. Matt Botek, the team's MVP QB, played with the flu and couldn't get untracked early, forcing Coach Shawn Dodd to substitute sophomore Connor Lesko late in the first quarter. By the end of the game, PJ Volpe, Ishmael Hargrove (severe leg cramps) and Grant Bent (ejection) were also relegated to the bench.
