Football: Darreus Rogers is a star in the making

October 2, 2010 |  7:47 am

The receiver position in Southern California is just loaded with talent.

And I saw another future college player on Friday in Carson's Darreus Rogers, a junior who made seven catches for 164 yards and one touchdown in a 42-21 loss to Mission Viejo.

He's tall, athletic, fast, has great hands and stays within himself. He had some terrific battles with Mission Viejo's standout defensive back Ethan DeSilva.

Carson showed me enough to make the Colts the favorite to win the Marine League. As for City Section Division I, the No. 1 playoff seed will likely come from the Crenshaw-Dorsey winner on Nov. 12.

But don't think Carson Coach Elijah Asante won't come to the seeding meeting putting his team up for No. 1 if it sweeps through the Marine League. Now that's going to be fun, Asante debating Crenshaw's Robert Garrett. I might have to bring a video camera.
