    All three games were played in week 2! We now have six teams and hopefully one more will continue the season.

  • The rematch of last year semifinals did not disappoint the Guam High fans this time. LJ Aguon sealed the deal and the defense did not allow a comeback from the Geckos. Aguon had the best performance of the week with over 200 yards of offense. Aguon has numerous options at his disposal with Brown, Hines, Jacobs, Geller III and himself to score. The defense held the Geckos to eight points and had numerous tackles from Brown and Burpo. Coach Dowdell was right on the Panthers being swift and lethal.
  • The Geckos converted 1 out of 2 trips to the redzone. The defense should rebound for the next game. Any team on Guam or Far East is going to have a hard time containing the Panthers this season. The new GW quarterback is Brendan Santos, who scored a touchdown and passed a two point conversion to Ray Macias. Hank Sablan played both sides of the ball well. Coach Rios always has these boys ready to compete.
  • The Sharks returned from their sabbatical and took the Yigo-Dededo battle 24-12 over Okkodo. Daniel Cruz scored two touchdowns, Matthew Sojo returned an interception for a touchdown, and Dumanal’s late score finished off the Bulldogs. The Sharks spartanous defense held Okkodo scoreless in the second half. The squad is now back to 30 plus players.
  • The Bulldogs stayed close and just lost the momentum in the second half. The QB duties have switched back to Leeroy Zapatos who ran and threw two touchdowns. The rest of the offense was shut down against a stingy Shark defense.
  • JFK Islanders’ Jereme Gogue caught a 20 yard pass and was immediately tackled by FD Friars’ Bryton Cepeda. (photo by Jesse Castro)

    The Friars defense held JFK to zero points. Is this an early indication of the Maroon Wall Defense returning? The offense was lead by Tyler Okiyama with 120 yards of total offense. He was able to find his main targets Cepeda  and Aglubat open and picked up yards on the ground. Albert Johnston was key in scoring the winning TD and grinding out some yards.

  • The Islander’s offense could not generate any points. Hernden was contained and the offense made it to the red zone once. A week off will give the Islanders time to regroup and plan some offensive solutions.
  • Week 1 Offensive Player of The Week – Jarred Hernden RB JFK Islanders- Scored all of JFK’s 14 points in 14-6 win over Okkodo Bulldogs.
  • Week 1 Defensive Player of The Week – JFK Defense – Held Okkodo to six points.
  • Week 2 Offensive Player of The Week – LJ Aguon QB Guam High Panthers- Accounted for all three touchdowns and 200 plus yards in Guam High’s Win.
  • Week 2 Offensive Player of the Week – Tegan Brown DB Guam High Panthers- Ten tackles for the Preseason Defensive MVP.

Week 3 Predictions

  • FD vs. GW – I see a close game here as both teams are still struggling offensively. This is a rivalry game. I see both teams putting up a little more offensive yards and points up this week. Geckos 21-14.
  • Guam High vs. Okkodo – The Panthers invade Dededo this week. Okkodo will be looking for the upset. I would like to see a little more Calvin Muna in the offense. I think Aguon will get that Paul Floyd record this week. Panthers 35-14.
  • Sanchez vs. Southern – I hope Southern shows up with it least 11 so they can have a game. If they do play, look for Dondre Barnes to get those four or more touchdowns and Coach Naholowaa to be slightly pleased. No prediction needed.

Power Rankings

  • Guam High (2-0)
  • Sanchez (1-1)
  • GW (1-1)
  • FD (1-0)
  • JFK (1-1)
  • Okkodo (0-2)
  • Southern (0-1)

  • Colin Babauta is a junior playing RB-DE with the Cabrillo High School. His older brother TJ Babauta is a former Cabrillo standout and currently on the school’s coaching staff.
  • Sometimes it is better to just kick for the touchback. The losing QB for Copperas Cove did break Robert Griffin III old passing record.

  • Booker T. Washington faces Central this Friday. Both teams are separated by only seven miles and are district rivals. The two teams from Miami now occupy the top two spots in the MaxPrepx Xcellent 25- and they will match up this week for city bragging rights. Check out their game from last year it was played in the Miami Dolphin’s Stadium.  Good video if you enjoy elite level high school football and rap music for 20 minutes.

  • Anyone out there who is aware of other players stateside with a Guam connection please let me know!
