PREVIEW: As you thought high school football could not get any more interesting, you thought wrong. This Friday’s matchup of the St. Augustine Saints and the Helix Highlanders is particularly attention grabbing due to the recent transition of top recruit player, Isaac Taylor-Stuart. Once a Saint for three years, Taylor-Stuart decides to finish out his high school football career as a Highlander.
The St. Augustine Saints (2-2) and the Helix Highlanders (2-1) will be facing off at the home field of the Saints this Friday night at Mesa College. Prior to this season, Mesa College was once home turf to Isaac Taylor-Stuart for three years. Therefore, this Friday’s game will be Taylor-Stuart’s first re-appearance at Mesa College, but this time with a mindset to defeat the Saints.
With the Highlander’s previous shutout against the Saints rival, Cathedral Catholic, pressure breaks the surface of whether or not St. Augustine’s loss of Isaac Taylor-Stuart will favor in the Highlander’s gain of one of the top recruits in the nation.
St. Augustine’s current, and yet surprising two-loss record, lacks the intensity needed to compete with the (2-1) record of the overpowering Helix Highlanders in this week’s five contest. Regardless of their previous losses, St. Augustine will without a doubt come out this Friday ready to play after the (19-14) victory over Otay Ranch.
What will be the result of Isaac Taylor-Stewart’s return to his original home field of Mesa College, but this time as a Highlander? Tune into the Prep Pigskin Report on Friday night at 10:30pm for information and highlights considering this intense matchup of the Helix Highlanders and the St. Augustine Saints.
