Prep football: Blocked FG return highlights all-star game

Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Josh Shirley recovered a blocked field goal and raced 77 yards for a touchdown in the West's 29-14 victory over the East at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday.

Shirley, a linebacker from Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser who has not announced his commitment for next season, picked up the loose ball after it was blocked by Cassius Marsh, an LSU-bound player from Westlake Village (Oaks Christian), Calif.

The game featured the top high-school seniors from the recently completed season. Florida picked up three commitments Saturday, including 310-pound defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd of Philadelphia and defensive end Ronald Powell of Moreno Valley (Rancho Verde), Calif.

Floyd had two quarterback sacks and another pressure, and Powell had a TD reception and returned a blocked extra-point kick 97 yards for two points.

Cole Marcoux, a New York City product who’s headed to Dartmouth, threw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes for the East.

Farrington linebacker V.J. Fehoko, the only Hawai‘i player in this year's game, played for the West squad.
