BUSY SATURDAY FOR EVERYONE
A couple of the Cowboys' most prized commitments were unable to follow their future team's season opener Saturday night, busy with games of their own.
Quarterback commit Luke Del Rio, whose budding relationship with Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been big news of late, was scheduled to play his second game of the season. His Valor Christian squad from Denver was scheduled to take on Bingham High, located just outside Salt Lake City.
Valor had its 25-game win streak snapped in a 14-13 loss to Mullen, Colo., last week, when Del Rio threw for 168 yards with one TD and one pick.
Receiver Ra'Shaad Samples of Dallas Skyline, which is regarded by multiple national websites as one of the top teams in the country, was set to take on The Woodlands at FC Dallas Stadium.
Samples, a 6-foot, 170-pound four-star recruit, will be catching passes this year from QB Devante Kinkade, who is committed to Ole Miss.
