Future Huskers Highlights: Week Six

October 06, 2016

As we prepare for another round of high school football highlights, we’re taking a quick look back on how the future Nebraska Huskers performed in week six. It wasn’t quite a full week for all of the Husker commits, as Broc Bando and Brenden Jaimes both received BYE weeks. The commits that did play last Friday performed well, with Tristan Gebbia’s 500-yard passing performance being the headliner. The commits will look to keep the success coming this weekend, with several big games scheduled for Friday.

American Heritage (Fla.) defeated Stranahan (Fla.) 51-0

Willie Hampton was once again all over the field last Friday, forcing a fumble while helping Heritage shut out Stranahan 51-0. This was the Patriots second shutout of the season, as they boast a defense that is allowing just 11.6 points per game midway through the season. The victory allowe Heritage to remain unbeaten and ranked in the top 20 of the national high school rankings.
