Last week I wrote about how Union Grove’s talent had been overshadowed by region rivals Stephenson and M.L. King, and the Wolverines do indeed have some talented football players. But they weren’t just overshadowed this past Saturday night, they were overwhelmed in a 27-7 loss to the Jaguars.
Raymond Sanders, a Kentucky commitment who wowed an ESPN national-television audience last week against MLK, had his most dominating performance to date. Stephenson’s senior running back piled up 232 yards rushing on just 17 carries, scored three touchdowns and added a 23-yard reception.
Other standouts for the Jaguars included DB Kenneth Ladler with eight tackles, a pass breakup and a blocked field goal; LB Jabari Johnson with eight tackles; OLB Tyrone Cornelius (Miami) with six tackles and a pass breakup; and DT Mike Thornton with four tackles and another dominating night blowing up the middle of the line.
