RONALD BROWN passed for 343 yards and 5 touchdowns in leading USO over Brashear. (Photos by William McBride) In Spain the running of the bulls is popular but the Eagles found that flying over the Bulls to be most effective. Currently USO (University Prep, Sci-Tech, Obama Academy) is considered the best in the City League and proved that against Brashear. In a 51-6 win over the Bulls, Ronald Brown completed 28 aerials for 343 yards and 5 touchdowns last week at Cupples Stadium to improve to 4-0. Although, Brashear fell to 1-3, the game was much closer than the score.
MARCUS JOHNSONUSO The Brashear Bulls have two of the biggest and smartest offensive linemen in the area and their interior line is the strength of the team. Scott Evans, (6’3, 260), is a Harvard University recruit and Jordan Maben (6’0, 300) is also being recruited by Ivy League teams.

(AP Photo/PennLive.com, Joe Hermitt) by Jim Carlson HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) — Tyler Boyd didn’t think he had anything to prove at Saturday night’s Big 33 Football Classic high school all-star game. But with an NFL Network audience watching, along with about 8,000 fans in the stands, Boyd showed off the all-around skills that made him a solid recruit for the University of Pittsburgh. The 6-foot-1 receiver from Clairton returned the opening kickoff 91 yards and had a hand in five touchdowns as Pennsylvania defeated Maryland 58-27.
