I caught Don Bosco's 47-7 dismanteling of Bergen Catholic for their sectional title last night at Giants stadium. I wanted to see Yuri in person because other people i know say they're not that impressed and that he's very raw. They threw at him 6 times.
1st: 30 yard pass down the sideline. Yuri tripped on his own feet when he turned to make the play. Receiver had him beat by a step but couldn't make the catch.
2nd: 10 yard pass attempt up the middle incomplete. Receiver stretched out for it and Yuri drilled him cleanly.
3rd:25 yard pass to corner of endzone. Yuri gets great position and picks it. They call pass interferece. I couldn't find where even on the replay. It had to be right off the line because once the ball was in the air Yuri played it cleanly.
4th:15 yard reception down the sideline. Receiver dragged his foot before going out. Sweet catch.
5th: 15 yard recetion up the middle. Yuri was on him but he still made the catch.
6th: Yuri breaks up a 10 yard pass up the middle.
I see the rawness. He's good but I didn't feeI was seeing one of the top 6 CB's in the country. Bergen Catholic doesn't have great receivers and I saw his guy beat him by a 1 and 2 steps a few times on plays that weren't thrown to them. I don't think he can play on a D1 defense next year. Needs some work but i would love to see what Mattison and the coaches can do to polish him up.
