U.S. Under 17 take control early to defeat Team Ontario.
Gushing first-quarter points like a Texas oil derrick, the U.S. Under-17 Select team scored four touchdowns in the opening 9:43 and never looked back in a 61-7 victory against Team Ontario at International Bowl X in Arlington, Texas’ world-renowned AT&T Stadium.
Outgaining Ontario in total yards (469-265) and seizing a plus-six turnover advantage, the U.S. struck paydirt early and often to quell the Canadians. A total of eight American players scored the team’s nine touchdowns, four of those scores coming on their first four possessions.
U.S. quarterbacks Ryan Cammas of Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha Catholic High School and Michael Priami of Bartlett (Ill.) High School each scored on TD runs of 1 and 4 yards, respectively, to open a 14-0 lead less than five minutes into the game. Cammas’ TD came on the heels of a physical 10-play opening drive while Priami’s score came immediately after U.S. defensive end Gage Sales of Evansville (Ind.) North High School recovered a mishandled Ontario handoff on the Canadians’ 4-yard line.
Cammas earned the game’s most valuable player honor among a crowded list of candidates. The DeMatha Stag was 7 of 12 passing for 141 yards with a pair of TDs through the air without an interception or a sack. He also ran for two TDs on four carries for 41 yards.
Manalapan (N.J.) St. John Vianney linebacker Julian Young led the U.S. defense with ten tackles, including 1.5 for losses. Defensive back Jordan Riley of Clinton (Md.) Bishop McNamara High School notched four tackles and an interception. Riley’s pick and 24-yard return snuffed out Ontario’s first drive of the second half.
After Priami’s score, the Americans’ defense promptly forced a three-and-out. Starting its drive on the Ontario 28, U.S. head coach P.J. Gibbs of Naples (Fla.) Palmetto Ridge High School called the number of running back Kevin McKenna of Katonah (N.Y.) Archbishop Stepinac High School on three consecutive plays. McKenna racked up gains of 13, 6 and 1 yard to place the ball on Ontario’s 8
Quarterback Justin Lamson of El Dorado (Calif.) Oak Ridge High School then found receiver Tyler Settle of Gainesville (Va.) Patriot High School in the end zone for an 8-yard scoring strike to take a 21-0 lead.
Two plays later, the U.S. defensive front hurried Ontario quarterback Carter Stephens into an interception when defensive back Chey Lavender of Richland (Texas) High School caught the ball off the arms of Ontario receiver Jonathan Aoude. Lavender’s quick reflexes and sure hands gave the U.S. the ball 34 yards from their next TD when Cammas lofted a beautiful 19-yard pass to receiver Kaden Birch (Meridian [Idaho] Rocky Mountain High School) in the left corner of the end zone. Cammas, also working as the team’s holder, couldn’t handle the snap on the point-after try, keeping the U.S. lead at 27-0.
McKenna closed the first half’s scoring with a 52-yard punt return for a touchdown. After bobbling and fumbling the ball on the 50, McKenna recovered, darted toward the sideline, found a wall of blockers and put a 34-0 exclamation point on the halftime scoreboard.
“This team came together all week,” said Gibbs. “We had a great week of practice and it showed here today.
“I don’t think you ever think you’re going to win this decisively, but our kids just played great and kept it rolling.”
Entering the third quarter up 34-0, the U.S. scored the next 27 points unanswered. Cammas scored on a 33-yard run, weaving through the Ontario secondary for a 41-0 lead. Wide receiver Devin Smith of Smyrna (Ga.) High School punctured the Ontario defense three minutes later for a 10-yard TD catch from Lamson for a 47-0 lead.
Three changes of possession later, Cammas launched a long pass from the U.S 27-yard line, perfectly leading receiver Jake Grondz of Ripon (Calif.) Christian High School, who got behind his defender and ran the rest of the way for a 73-yard touchdown and a 54-0 lead.
The Americans’ final score came on a 14-yard run by Boswell (Texas) High School running back Rodney Talton II with 2:21 left to go up 61-0.
Ontario scored on its 14th and final possession of the day to avoid a shutout. Quarterback Matt Linn (8-17, 125 yards with a TD and an INT) threw a perfect over-the-shoulder pass to receiver Nathan Falconi down the left sideline for 23 yards over the outstretched arm of the Americans’ Riley.
