BELLFLOWER, CALIF. — The highly-anticipated game between No. 2 Mater Dei (Santa Ana, California) and No. 4 St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, Maryland) was all but over two minutes into the third quarter.
Quarterback Bryce Young completed a 15-yard pass to wide receiver Kody Epps. The receiving core is deep, but he looks to be Young’s favorite target four games into the season, finishing the game with seven receptions for 101 yards.
Then, Young connected with running back Quincy Craig for an 18-yard gain. On the next play, Craig took a handoff 16 yards.
Young closed out the drive by bolting to the outside and scoring a 37-yard touchdown. This increased the lead to 31-6.

St. Frances couldn’t compete. Mater Dei is a tier above a team that was thought to be in the top tier of teams and came away with the 34-18 win.
Here are some takeaways:

Just a reminder: Bryce Young is a dual-threat quarterback

Coming into the matchup against St. Thomas Frances, quarterback Bryce Young had just 12 carries. He threw for more than 500 yards last week. But he’s the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the 2020 class for a reason.
Young scored all four touchdowns for Mater Dei, all four on the ground, the longest of which was the 37-yard dash.
“That’s kind of what we got, especially down in the red zone. I got lanes to run,” Young said.
Some wondered if St. Frances’ immense size on the offensive line could slow him down. Listed at 6-foot on the dot, Young isn’t the largest quarterback in the country.
“Really, the key for us was our O-line,” Young said. “They did an amazing job. That’s a very big, a very athletic line, they did a great job of protecting me.”

The defensive line, led by five-star Chris Braswell, couldn’t stop him. Young releases the ball quickly like Steph Curry on a 3-point shot. It takes him little time to find a target, and when he does, he releases. He escaped sacks and pressure by getting rid of it on a dime.
And he can also run it himself.
Don’t forget it.....Keep reading..................
