Monday Morning Recap – HSSC – August 1, 2022 – Scoops with Danny Mac | Hot Mobile Press

Fall sports are on a seven-day break before training begins next week, but we’re continuing to get you ready for the fall season. In today’s Monday morning recap, we take a look at two teams that hit deep runs in the state playoffs last season, and we’ll try to do the same this year.

Veteran head coach Antoine Torrey returns to the Chaminade sidelines with a great mix of returnees and youngsters looking to defend their district title. Returning quarterback Drake Faust will lead offense and he’ll have two outstanding running backs behind him.

MICDS Head Coach Fred Bouchard welcomes 15 starters from last year’s roster that won the Metro League and reached the Class 4 Semifinals. Winston Moore will accelerate the Rams offense after being named to the Class 4 All-State team last year, while Nate Schuckman will anchor both the offensive and defensive lines.

Chaminade Red Devils

  • Head Coach – Antoine Torrey
  • Conference – Metro Catholic Conference
  • Record 2021 – 7-6
  • 2021 Highlights – Won their district in the Missouri State High School Activities Association Class 5 playoffs before losing to Holt 31-28 in the quarterfinals.
  • Returning Players: Derrick Fields Jr., Christopher Jenkins, Keith Watson, Drake Faust, Kyle Russell and Hayden Faulb.
  • Players to watch: Madden Irving, Reese Frericks, Jordan Pettis and Jackson Otto.
  • Season Outlook: “We’re a fairly young football team and will have big shoes to fill in order to include standout two-way Cam Epps (MCC Co-Offensive Player of the Year), two Division I offensive linemen in Jimmy Lansing and Alex Todt and to replace a senior-heavy line of defense,” Torrey said. “Although we’re only bringing back two starters from last season’s offense, we’re a decent size up front with two proven running backs in Keith Watson and Madden Irving and a battle-hardened quarterback in Drake Faust.”

  • Season Outlook: “The outlook for 2022 is cautiously optimistic,” said Bouchard. “With eight returning starters on offense and seven returning starters on defense, there’s reason for some positivity. However, replacing a solid group of grads including four-year QB starter Reagan Andrew leaves some questions for the Rams. Starting with All-State players Steve Hall (RB) and Winston Moore (WR) are a great starting point that includes four starters plus two tight ends returning on the offensive front led by All-State tackle, Nate Schuckman. On defense, Cortlin Dalton leads the team from his linebacker spot while Soph Luke Allgeyer and Sr. Devyn Rodgers anchor the defensive line. Seniors Cameron Lester and Tyler Petersen lead the secondary school with extensive experience, while Sr. Dorian Reddic and Jr. Carter Enyard tend to the outposts. Expect some new and young faces set to step up to prominent roles for 2022, led by Coleman brothers Marcus (Sr) and Miles (Fr) who will make an immediate impact on the lineup. State Railroad medalists Tristan Williams and Jeremiah Clay are new to soccer, but they bring plenty of speed and skill to the grid. Expect roleplayers Willy Carpenter and Adrian Ritchey to expand their roles from part-time players in 2021 to full-time players and defensive playmakers in 2022. Brian Gould and Zach Schmitz will likely handle the punting duties, while Malik Orsan or newcomer Harrison Mandell will do the chores. Gould is also a gifted young QB who will be fighting for game time there. A talented group of additional sophomores and freshmen will provide in-depth and dedicated team help to the Rams this fall.”
