Late Thursday football summaries

Here are some games that we could not get in the paper, they will appear in Saturday's edition along with Friday's games. But here they are so you don't have to wait.

Homestead 33, Braddock 7: Even though there were signs of rust in
Homestead's play during their season opener, yet they still sent out a message to the rest
of District 16-6A Harris Field.

   Quarterback Keahn Wallace showed why he should be considered among the
elite signal callers in Miami-Dade going 17-for-24 and threw for 256
yards and three touchdowns; he also ran for one.

   "Our hard work paid off and it showed off in our play,'' Wallace said. "My offensive
line gave me all the opportunities I could have and the credit goes to them.''

   Despite Wallace's brilliant play, there were signs of rust as the
Broncos (1-0) were flagged 12 times for 82 yards.

   "We have a lot of work to do, and we have to have more discipline,'' Homestead coach
Bobby McCray said. "We're a much better team than we were last year and that is
why we have to develop our kids throughout the season.''

Boca Raton Christian 56, David Posnack Hebrew Day School 0: Evan Gaines
ran for 60 yards on 25 carries and returned a kickoff 25 yards for the host Rams (0-2) at
PAL Field in Plantation. Troy Postal caught two passes, and Sam Sekoff intercepted a pass.

   For the winning Blazers (2-0), 6-3, 250 senior tight end/defensive lineman Charlie
Cowley scored twice … one on a fumble return, which he caused, and the other on a catch.

   Stephen Smith scored on a kickoff return and on an interception return, and
kicker/defensive back David Weil went 8 of 8 on extra points and blocked a punt, which
Constantine Gavrilos scored.

FIU gets verbal from Kedric Rhodes

Ocala Trinity Catholic running back Kedrick Rhodes verbally committed to Florida International University.

Rhodes, who set the Marion County postseason rushing record with 578 yards as a junior, chose the Panthers over offers from Iowa, Northwestern and Kansas. Rhodes is FIU's third commitment for the class of 2010.

"I was looking at Iowa, but I really like the program down there at FIU," Rhodes said. "I went down for a visit, looked around the school, and they had everything I was looking for."

Rhodes rushed for 154 yards in a season-opening 35-17 loss to sixth-ranked 4A Gainesville High last Thursday.

After tallying 1,638 yards and 17 TDs last season, Rhodes, rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, has even bigger plans in 2009.

"I want to rush for over 2,000 yards," Rhodes said, "and 25 touchdowns or more."

Rhodes is Trinity's second verbal commitment of the year after wide receiver Kadron Boone pledged to Texas Tech in August.

"I'm glad he's staying in state," Trinity head coach John Brantley said. "That way you can keep up with these guys (in college).

"(FIU) plays good competition. This week they're playing (No. 4 Alabama) in Tuscaloosa. It's a good program."

FIU, which went 5-7 overall and 3-4 in Sun Belt Conference play last season, also visits No. 1-ranked Florida on November 21.

Rhodes says he still plans to visit Kansas before National Signing Day in February.

"Right now I'm pretty solid to FIU," he said of his commitment. "But I'm gonna keep my options open at the same time."

La Salle's Sam Miller latest catch for Mario Cristobal, FIU

La Salle Miami Herald All-Dade linebacker Sam Miller has committed to Florida International University, according to his coach Willie Trimmer.

"It was just the right fit for both of them," Trimmer said Thursday.

Miller (5-9, 170) projects as a defensive back at FIU, and has spent time in the defensive secondary as well as carrying the ball for the Royal Lions.

He chose FIU over Boston College and Rutgers, who had also made overtures.

Miller becomes the latest South Florida coup for coach Mario Cristobal, who has made a habit of snaring recruits with talent levels that earned interest from more traditional Division I powers.

Ted Meline to Tennessee

Ted Meline has yet to play a game for his new school, North Miami, never played one for his old school Booker T. Washington and was limited in the action he saw last year at Westlake Prep (now Woods Haven Prep), but it didn't stop the Tennessee Volunteers from accepting yet another commitment from a Florida athlete.

On Wednesday, Meline, who has limited playing time at the varsity level in high school, joined Delvin Jones of Palmetto, Michael Palardy from St. Thomas Aquinas, Ralph Williams (Southridge) and Jose Jose from Miami Central to join the Vols in the Class of 2010 from Florida.

The 6-3, 170-pound receiver has been looked at by a number of schools over the past year, based on his athletic ability and future.

"We have been watching Ted since his 10th grade season and he has a lot of potential," said Charles Fishbein of Elite Scouting Services. "But as long as I have been around recruiting, I really never have watched a player get so much attention with the little playing experience."

Meline's move to North Miami during the summer came with a snag when the Pioneers had to wait for all his paperwork to go through, which prevented him from getting on the field.

North Miami did, however, watch him play during summer practice, and while he has plenty to work on, they saw some positives.

Meline had also entertained offers from Purdue, Clemson, Oregon, and Georgia as well as other schools who have been keeping an eye on his progress.

Central overtakes Northwestern in one national football poll

MaxPreps shook things up in its recent Xcellent Top 25 national rankings.

Following its impressive 34-3 victory against Daytona Beach Mainland, Central ascended to the No. 7 spot in the latest poll, surpassing Northwestern, which remained at 15th following a 27-6 win against Carol City.

Northwestern remains No. 4 in ESPN's RISE Top 50 and No. 5 by USA Today. The Rockets aren't ranked by USA Today, but ESPN has them ranked 17th.

That should only spice up the pregame talk among fans leading up to the showdown Oct. 8th at FIU.

And speaking of showdowns, St. Thomas Aquinas remains unanimous No. 1 and on a collision course with No. 2 Byrnes (S.C.) Oct. 2nd.
