Nakobe Dean-Led Horn Lake Way Too Much For Booker T. Washington

SHREVEPORT, La. — Nakobe Dean is the No. 1 linebacker and 15th-ranked overall player in the country—and, after his performance on Saturday, a strong argument could be made that he’s still underrated.

With Dean serving as the catalyst, Horn Lake (MS) hammered Booker T. Washington (OK) on Saturday, racing out to a 36-0 halftime lead and cruising to a 36-7 victory.

The Eagles’ five-star middle linebacker was completely disruptive on the defensive side of the ball, leading the way with eight stops and a sack—all in the first half. Oh, and by the way, he also rushed for 50 yards and two scores from the quarterback spot.

His performance was bolstered by a similarly impressive showing by actual quarterback Raydarius Jones, who wrecked the Hornets early, rushing for two touchdowns in the first eight minutes of the game.

Jones completed 2-of-3 passes for 46 yards and carried the ball six times for 68 yards and two scores.

To say the Horn Lake defense was suffocating is an understatement. The Eagles limited Booker T. Washington to 67 total yards—including -12 rushing yards on 26 attempts.
