Football: It's a showdown of receivers

December 2, 2010 |  7:23 am

Perhaps the two best receivers in the City Section are facing off on Friday night in a Division I semifinal at Carson.

Junior Darreus Rogers of Carson and senior Mike Thomas of Woodland Hills Taft are future college players with size, strength and big-play abilities. If a defense can prevent touchdowns from either player, that could be the difference.

Thomas has obliterated the school records for receiving at Taft. He has 86 catches for 1,656 yards and 21 touchdowns. Rogers usually plays well in the big games for the Colts, and this is the biggest game yet.
