Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, Oaks Christian, Burbank and Saugus got together for a four-team scrimmage on Friday night at Notre Dame. Two teams were playing each other simultaneously using half the field, causing lots of whistles to be blown. There were lots of standouts.
Notre Dame unveiled its new quarterback, Cole Klayman, a junior, and he looked comfortable and confident. There was a hint of how good senior receiver CJ Sanders will be. The transfer from Tennessee who's committed to Notre Dame showed glimpses of his speed on a kickoff return and catch.
Oaks Christian receiver Michael Pittman, a 6-foot-4 junior, is a man among boys. If new quarterback Holden Thomas gets any time to throw, Pittman is going to be tough to stop. Running back Gil'Scott Jackson, a junior transfer from San Diego, is going to be a standout for the Lions.
Burbank will try to get as many touches as possible for Washington State-bound running back James Williams.
Freshman quarterback Matt Corral didn't play for Oaks Christian, He's scheduled to have an MRI for a back injury that could sideline him for six weeks.
Leo Lambert III was welcomed back for Notre Dame after an 18-month absence following jaw surgery. He was tentative at first and had to leave briefly after taking a hard hit. But he returned to make some nice runs at running back.
