ST. LOUIS — Despite falling to Lutheran North in one of the state’s most highly anticipated games on Friday, Trinity Catholic showed they have plenty of elite talent and why college coaches have been following their players.
Here, Six Star Football takes a look at some of top performers from Trinity. Earlier, Six Star Football broke down the top performers from Lutheran North. You can read about the Crusaders at the link.
11 — Marcus Washington, 6’2, 195, WR/LB, 2019, Trinity (pictured)
Kid had one of the better performances we’ve seen this season at WR. He could very well be the top WR in the state. He plays bigger and looks much bigger than his listed 6’2 height. He won two jumps balls in the end zone in impressive fashion, added a two-point conversion and ran away with a touchdown pass over the middle of the field late in the game. He caught four passes for 101 yards and three scores. Washington currently holds nearly 30 offers including several from high major programs including Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Texas and others.
1 — Isaiah Williams, 5’11, 170, QB, 2019, Trinity
It was kind of a mixed bag for Williams on Friday. He threw six touchdown passes and showed off the electric running style that has been the subject of countless highlights this season. On the other hand, he completed just 11 of 26 passes and threw four interceptions, including two late that hurt. Overall, Williams probably didn’t have his best game but he showed a lot of the skills and talent that has led to a host of offers from high major programs.
5— Terriyon Cooper, 5’10, 175, RB, 2020, Trinity
Kid had one of several highlight reel worthy plays for Trinity when he caught a short pass, shook off a defender that appeared to have him wrapped up, then weaved his way through traffic for a score. He opened the game by taking a short pass along the sidelines 62 yards for a score. Cooper is an explosive athlete that is among the premier recruits in the state in the 2020 class.
7 — Shammond Cooper, 6’2, 195, LB, 2019, Trinity
An athletic linebacker, Cooper brings good leadership to the field and showed the ability to cover the field, sideline to sideline, running down LN players on the perimeter and helping stuff the run in the middle of the field. He finished with 12 total tackles.
19 — Scott Presson, 6’0, 170, LB, 2021, Trinity
There are a lot of talented kids on Trinity who probably haven’t gotten a lot of attention and Presson feels like a kid that has largely flown under the radar. We’re not sure if we’ve seen a better freshman this season. He has good size and an athletic frame and brought a physical brand of play to the field for a ninth grader. Presson was a standout on the defensive side of the ball and was a standout on special teams.
23 — Reggie Love, 5’11, 190, LB, 2020, Trinity
Love is one of the better young defensive players you’ll see, blessed with elite speed and a good motor. He showed he is a standout tackler in space and ran down LN’s talented and quick RB tandem on Friday. For a sophomore, Love brings a physical brand of play to the field.
78 — Ira Henry, 6’5, 295, OL/DL, 2019, Trinity
Kid is a monster, powerfully built with a huge frame and good athleticism for a kid his size. He played both ways for much of the game and provided a good push in the middle of the field at defensive tackle for Trinity against Lutheran North’s run game.
99 — Tomiko Walker, 6’3, 315, OL/DL, 2020, Trinity
Walker is another kid you really don’t hear much about, but like Herny and 2020 OL Jalen St. John, Walker has legitamite Division I size at 6’3, 315 for an offensive or defensive lineman. He appears to be best suited as an inside lineman at guard where he can utilize good feet and athleticism to pull.
