The defensive players from Sherman Oaks Notre Dame won't have any problem putting together a highlight video if they continue to succeed against top quarterbacks.
Notre Dame has begun a cycle where it's facing three college-bound quarterbacks over a four-week period.
It started with Gardena Serra and Boise State-bound Jalen Greene. The Knights held Serra scoreless for three quarters before losing in double overtime.
On Friday, Colorado-bound Cade Apsay of Canyon Country Canyon faces Notre Dame. Apsay has thrown for nine touchdowns to help the Cowboys to a 3-0 record.
Then, in another week, Miami-bound Brad Kaaya of Chaminade gets to face Notre Dame.
At least Coach Kevin Rooney will be able to answer the question, "Who's the best quarterback?"

DVD Review: The Twilight Zone (The Complete Fifth Season)
How did The Twilight Zone only last five seasons? It felt like it must have lasted a decade since it has been ingrained in pop culture. Alfred Hitchcock Presents lasted a decade. While Hitchcock's anthology series was fine, Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone proved to be the gold standard that's been repeated endlessly on UHF, PBS, SyFy (back when it was SciFi) and ME-TV. The reruns still pack a punch after half a century. The fifth season was a true return to form since the network allowed Serling restore the episode length to 30 minutes long instead of an hour. This time reduction allowed the stories to get back to the lean, mean shocking ending weight. What brought around the end? CBS felt the show was too costly. ABC wanted Serling to bring it over, but only if it became Witches, Warlocks and Werewolves. Serling turned off the lights rather than deal with running a spooktacular series. The Twilight Zone: The Complete Fifth Season wraps up the legendary series on a high note.
"In Praise of Pip" has jack Klugman ( Quincy) enter a hall of mirrors after discovering his son his injured and dying on the other side of the world. In the midst of his grief, he stumbles into a hall of mirrors and sees his son as a young child ( Lost In Space's Billy Mumy). Is it really his son? "Steel" predicts the future of movies about fighting robots. In this case Lee Marvin ( The Big Red One) is the manager of an older model robot eager for one more shot. "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" is one of the legends of the season. William Shatner ( Star Trek) has a fear of flying. He's been working on overcoming it before this big flight. But he's about to have his senses tested with a mysterious passenger. This one was written by the great Richard Matheson ( The Night Stalker). Director Richard Donner would go on to make Lethal Weapon) and "Danger Island" on The Banana Splits. "Last Night of a Jockey" lets Mickey Rooney go nuts as a race track rider accused of doping his horse. He won't take the charge. Telly Savalas ( Kojak) learns the price of creepy toys in "Living Doll." His daughter's new doll has a message for him that sends him over the top.
"The Old Man in the Cave" takes us to the 10th anniversary of World War III. James Coburn ( In Like Flint) and survivors are waiting to see if a stash of canned foods is safe. Some don't want to wait for a mysterious man in a cave to give his verdict. "Probe 7, Over and Out" crash lands Richard Basehart ( Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea) on a distant planet. He gets bad news from Harold Gould (The Dean of Thespians) that Earth is in the middle of a nuclear war so nobody will be able to rescue him. Can Basehart get along with the locals? Ed Wynn is a man who swears he'll drop dead if his grandfather clock stops ticking in ""Ninety Years Without Slumbering." "The Long Morrow" shoots an astronaut into space. He's kept in suspended animation for nearly 40 years, when he wakes up back on Earth, he has to adjust to being so young while his peers are elderly."Number 12 Looks Just Like You" takes us to a future where kids become adults thanks to a transformation process. Everyone gets to pick from a limited model selection. This is what they do to stars of various Bravo Real Housewives series. A women keeps getting strange phone calls in "Night Call." Is she the victim of the Jerky Boys?
"An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" isn't a proper episode. Serling got the rights to a Canadian short film based on Ambrose Bierce's story. The original short film would win the Oscar. This is a great adaptation for viewing in case you have to read the short story for an English class. "What's in the Box" lets a couple see their lives on the TV. Today we call that Duck Dynasty. "The Masks" will make you scared of Halloween disguises. "I Am the Night-Color Me Black" deals with the hanging of a man for killing a bigot in self-defense. Ivan Dixon ( Hogan's Heroes) is a minister who won't be quiet about the impending execution. "Caesar and Me" is an evil ventriloquist dummy in the hands of Jackie Cooper. A hungover couple wakes up to find themselves in a strange house in an even strangers neighborhood in "Stopover in a Quiet Town." "The Encounter" was kept out of syndication for the longest time since it dealt with Neville Brand ( The Untouchables) and George Takei ( Star Trek) fighting over Pearl Harbor. "The Brain Center at Whipple's" lets Richard Deacon ( The Dick Van Dyke Show) improve his factory with the help of robots. But why should robots stop on the factory floor? "The Bewitchin' Pool" is the final episode. A brother and sister find a mysterious relative under the water.
The Twilight Zone might have come to an end as a network series, but it quickly gained a loyal cult following on syndicated TV for all the right reasons. The stories have just the right amount of twist to surprise the most jaded of viewers. The performances are top notch so even if you know the twist, you want to experience the episode repeatedly. It's not unusual to just marathon episodes on a rainy day. The Twilight Zone: The Complete Fifth Season returns the show to the tight 30 minute length that allows it to shock without too much pacing to hit the hour mark. The show went out on a high note that continues to marvel and sustain.
"In Praise of Pip," "Steel," "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," "A Kind of a Stopwatch," "The Last Night of a Jockey," "Living Doll," "The Old Man in the Cave," "Uncle Simon," "Probe 7 Over and Out," "The 7th Is Made Up of Phantoms," "Ninety Years Without Slumbering," "Ring-A-Ding Girl," "You Drive," "The Long Morrow," "The Self-Improvement of Salvadore Ross," "Number Twelve Looks Just Like You," "Black Leather Jackets," "Night Call," "From Agnes, with Love," "Spur of the Moment," "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," "Queen of the Nile," "What's in the Box," "The Masks," "I Am the Night Color Me Black," "Sounds and Silences," "Caesar and Me," "The Jeopardy Room," "Stopover in a Quiet Town," "The Encounter," "Mr. Garrity and the Graves," "The Brain Center at Whipple's," "Come Wander with Me," "The Fear" and "The Bewitchin' Pool."
The video is 1.33:1 full frame. The transfers appear to be from the restored high definition masters that were used for the recent Blu-rays. There's a richness to the black and white images. The audio is Dolby Digital Mono. The levels are just right for Rod Serling's introductions and closings.
No bonus features.
The Twilight Zone: The Complete Fifth Season wraps up the legendary series with quite a few iconic episodes. The return to 30 minutes brings back the original tone of the show. This collection doesn't have any bonus features so it's perfect for fans of the show who don't crave bells and whistles. They just want to sit back and binge on episodes to get their Rod Serling fix.

One of the reasons for the Eagles' decline from perennial contender to a team picking in the top five of the NFL draft has been their draft classes.
Specifically, the 2011 draft in which they selected hockey player Danny Watkins in the first round and Temple safety Jaiquawn Jarrett in the second round, neither of whom are on the team just two years later.
The Eagles, while having perhaps as bad a draft as they ever had in 2011 - third-round pick cornerback Curtis Marsh is also gone - and on the heels of a 2010 draft that wasn't so good either, are not alone.
With the exception of a few teams and a few picks, the 2011 draft was just bad.
"What happened that year is a lot of teams reached for quarterbacks, and that's the worst thing you can do," a long-time scout said. "They missed and well, a lot of those same teams are still looking for quarterbacks."
You would have thought with Tennessee taking Jake Locker at No. 8 overall, Jacksonville taking Blaine Gabbart at No. 10 overall and Minnesota taking Christian Ponder at No. 12 overall, some better players would have fallen to the bottom of the first round where the Eagles, at No. 23, and others were waiting. It didn't happen.
Watkins, who the Eagles took, was a bad selection all around. But for the most part, the players, who immediately followed the guard from Baylor with the hockey background, haven't panned out either.
Of the eight players who followed Watkins to finish the first round, two are also no longer with the team that selected them - tackle Gabe Carimi (Chicago) and wide receiver Jon Baldwin (Kansas City). Three others can be considered major disappointments: running back Mark Ingram (New Orleans), defensive lineman Cameron Heyward (Pittsburgh) and tackle Derek Sherrod (Green Bay).
And the first pick of the second round, cornerback Ras-I Dowling taken by New England, isn't on anyone's roster today.
While the Eagles have just three players from the Class of '11 on their current roster - kicker Alex Henery, backup linebacker Casey Matthews and center Jason Kelce, that's not much worse than some other teams.
Carolina, which had the No. 1 pick in that draft, has just two players left on its roster from that class, although one is quarterback and top pick quarterback Cam Newton.
Green Bay, a team who lives by its draft since general manager Ted Thompson refuses to play the free-agent game, has just three players from a draft where it picked 32.
Sherrod has been beset by a broken leg suffered his rookie year and has not played since. Wide receiver Randall Cobb has been a good second-round pick, but third-round pick running back Alex Green was cut.
Other than Cobb, just backup cornerback Davon House and backup tight end Ryan Taylor are on the Packers' current 53-man squad.
Pittsburgh, another team known for its drafting prowess, didn't do so well in '11 either.
The Steelers came away with two starters - tackle Marcus Gilbert and cornerback Cortez Allen. And that's it.
The Giants, also normally an excellent drafting team, took their lumps in 2011. First-round pick cornerback Prince Amukamara looked like a steal, except he's been the one stealing since he can never stay on the field.
Second-round pick defensive tackle Marvin Austin has been released. Third-round pick wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan is the team's No. 5 receiver, and fourth-round pick tackle James Brewer can't start on a bad and banged-up offensive line.
A few teams did manage to make the most of the 2011 draft, and not coincidentally, they are among the best teams in the league.
San Francisco came away with linebacker aldon Smith in the first round and quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the second and added backup running back Kendall Hunter (4th) and fullback Bruce Miller (7th).
Seattle picked up four starters - guard James Carpenter, linebackers K.J. Wright (4th) and Malcolm Smith (7th) and a decent cornerback named Richard Sherman (5th).
Denver got the currently suspended Von Miller in the first round, but it also added tackle Orlando Franklin (2nd), safety Rahim Moore (2nd), linebacker Nate Irving (3rd) and tight end Julian Thomas (4th).
Houston took advantage of the quarterbacks going higher than they should have and let J.J. Watt fall to it in the first round. The Texans also added linebacker Brooks Reed (2nd), right tackle Derek Newton (7th), nickel back Brandon Harris (2nd) and backup quarterback T.J. Yates (5th).
Finally, Cincinnati bypassed the bad quarterback group in the first round and selected wide receiver A.J. Green. The Bengals then took Andy Dalton, although they took him ahead of Kaepernick, in the second, and got starting guard Clint Boling in the fourth.
AROUND THE LEAGUE
TRENT TO INDY: In an early-season shocker, the Colts acquired running back Trent Richardson from the Browns for a first-round pick in next year's draft. If Richardson helps the Colts as much as they obviously think he will, that pick will be near the bottom of the first round, and it won't be that bad of a deal for Indy, which needs a running game to take some pressure off quarterback Andrew Luck.
By the way, if you told the Colts - or any team for that matter - the morning of the 2012 draft they would have Luck and Richardson by the third game of the 2013 season, I think they would have been ecstatic. Now, let's see how it works out.
CLEVELAND'S SIDE: The Browns are going to stink this year and probably next year - with or without Richardson and his career 3.5 yards per carry. They can't win without a quarterback, and they don't have one. Now they have to hope the Colts don't get too good, and they end up with two nice draft picks in a 2014 class loaded with quarterbacks.
DOGS AND MORE DOGS: After two weeks, the underdogs hold a 18-13-2 edge on the favorites against the spread, including Kansas City's win over the Eagles Thursday night.
And even though my man Chuck "Home Dog" Miller has been more of a "Road Dog" this season, traveling around the country, home underdogs are 6-3 in the early going thus far this season.
PRIME TIME?: You knew this week was coming sooner or later where both of the prime time games are not exactly worthy of, well, prime time.
Sunday, it's Chicago and Pittsburgh, not terrible, but not worth missing Breaking Bad, Ray Donovan and Dexter to watch.
Monday night, it's Oakland at Denver. Unless you really don't like the Raiders, there's no reason to watch this. Heck, I might watch Breaking Bad, Ray Donovan and Dexter again Monday night.
It gets better next week when New England and Atlanta play Sunday night, and New Orleans and Miami play Monday night.
EX-EAGLE UPDATE: Linebacker Moise Fokou is the starting middle linebacker for the Tennessee Titans and has recorded nine tackles and three quarterback hits in the first two games of the season. Fokou was a seventh-round pick of the Eagles in 2009 and was always a good special teams player for them.
ROOKIE REPORT: Buffalo quarterback EJ Manuel might be better than anyone - except the Bills - thought. The first-round pick from Florida State led the Bills to a 24-23 win over Carolina last week with an 80-yard drive in the final 1:38 and hit Stevie Johnson on a 2-yard touchdown pass with two seconds left for the win. On the drive, Manuel was 6-for-8 for 64 yards; for the game, he was 27-for-39 for 296 yards. Today, he'll face the Jets and fellow rookie quarterback Geno Smith.

GAME OF THE WEEK
Green Bay at Cincinnati
This is a classic matchup of a high-powered offense (Green Bay) against a really good defense, especially the front four (Cincinnati).
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"I think me and Coach (Marc) Trestman are probably the only two people who understand each other. I always say Coach Trestman reminds me of the first Willy Wonka, not the Johnny Depp one; the Johnny Depp one was really cool. But the first one, before that the 1943 version."

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Virginia Tech's defense struggled to stop Marshall all day long. The offense was getting almost nothing on an improved Thundering Herd defense.
When all else fails, there is always BeamerBall.
A blocked punt led to the Hokies' first touchdown, and Tech blocked a potential game-winning field goal in overtime. In the end, Tech made enough plays and caught enough breaks to defeat the Herd 29-21 in triple overtime on a rainy Saturday at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field.
The Hokies withstood a big challenge from the Herd (2-2) to come away with the 700th win in program history in front of 64,060 drenched fans.
"I'm proud of the kids. I'm proud of the way they played, but we all know there are no moral victories at Marshall," Herd coach Doc Holliday said. "We came here to win the football game. Virginia Tech just made one more play at the end than we did."
That one play was quarterback Logan Thomas' two-point conversion run after he scored from two yards out in the third overtime.
Thomas was held in check much of the afternoon. He was sacked twice - once with less than a minute left in regulation, the other in the first overtime - and threw interceptions on consecutive series in the first half.
But the 6-fooot-6, 254-pound senior was able to make just enough plays to snatch the game from the Herd's grasps.
"We couldn't have a better leader than Logan," Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. "He's tough and we're happy to follow the guy."
Marshall led 21-14 at halftime behind an offense the Hokies (3-1), who were second in the nation in total defense going in, could not stop. Quarterback Rakeem Cato threw two touchdown passes and ran four yards for another, but he also kept plays alive with his feet.
The junior from Miami had 15 carries for 46 yards, including a career-long 22-yard gain that seemed to trigger the offense halfway through the first quarter.
The Herd fell behind right off the bat. Marshall got into Hokie territory on the first drive of the game, but a false start penalty and 12-yard loss after a bad snap set up fourth-and-23 at the Marshall 34.
Kyle Fuller blocked Tyler Williams' punt and Derek DiNardo picked it up at the 11 and ran it in for a touchdown and 7-0 Tech lead.
Marshall, however, was unfazed. A 12-yard touchdown reception by Devon Smith tied the game, and even after Thomas' 2-yard TD put Tech back on top, the Herd kept rolling.
Aided by two facemask penalties, a 19-yard run by Cato and an 18-yard reception by Tommy Shuler, Marshall got insiide Tech's 10. On second-and-goal from the 4, Cato went right and dove into the end zone to knot things up at 14-14.
An interception by Monterius Lovett, the seventh of his career, set up the go-ahead touchdown, a 13-yarder from Cato to tight end Gator Hoskins. The TD came one play after Hoskins got into a tussle with freshman cornerback Kendall Fulller, on which off-setting unsportsmanlike penalties were assessed.
Defensively, the Herd came up with stops to help preserve the 21-14 lead, including a stop of Thomas on fourth-and-1 at the Marshall 10 with 8:30 left in the third quarter.
But the Herd also failed to convert offensively at a pair of key moments. Justin Haig missed wide left on a 41-yard field goal in the third, and Cato was interceped in the end zone by Kyshoen Jarrett with 1:07 remaining, after Tech had tied the game at 21-21 on Thomas' 2-yard touchdown pass to Willie Byrn after Herd cornerback Darryl Roberts got a hand on the ball.
That helped set up overtime, when conservative play calling slowed the Herd down.
The Hokies got the ball first and could not score after kicker Ethan Keyserling - playing in place of Cody Journell, who was suspended for the game for violating team rules - was well short on a 50-yard field goal attempt.
Marshall then ran on three consecutive plays - all 1-yard gains by Essray Taliaferro - and was content with Haig's 39-yard attempt. The kick was blocked by derrick Hopkins.
Tech now has 39 blocks under Beamer.
"I thought at that point it was sloppy out there," Holliday said. "I felt that he had been consistent from the 25-yard line and we felt that he could put us in a position to win the game. Unfortunately, we couldn't get it done."
Marshall's possession in the second overtime was disastrous. Hopkins sacked Cato for a loss of three on second-and-10, then Cato was sacked again by J.R. Collins.
Collins was able to pop the ball loose and Hopkins returned it for what looked to be the game-winning touchdown, but the 6-0, 311-pound tackle was caught by Taliaferro.
"We came after them a little more today," Beamer said. "I thought we played great on special teams. We got back to the way we want to do things."
The Hokies then attempted a 22-yard field goal on the ensuing drive, but Keyserling's kick was wide left.
Tech finally claimed the lead in the third OT on Thomas' TD and conversion, and the Herd had one more shot. But on fourth-and-9 from the 14, Cato's pass into the end zone went through Davonte Allen's arms as the Hokie faithful cheered and breathed a collective sigh of relief.
Taliaferro ran 26 times for 105 yards for the Herd, but had only four yards on four carries combined in overtime.
Cato was 19-of-41 for 228 yards and the two scores, but was also intercepted twice and sacked four times. Shuler had 10 receptions for 120 yards.
Thomas completed 18 of 34 passes for 181 yards. Redshirt freshman Trey Edmunds ran for a game-high 110 yards - 43 on one carry on the Hokies' game-tying drive.
The Hokies have a short turnaround, travelling to Georgia Tech Thursday.
Marshall will take next week off before starting Conference USA play Saturday, Oct. 5, at home against UTSA. Kickoff will be 2 p.m.
The Herd came away from the physical game a little banged up, including Smith, Hoskins, defensive end Ra'Shawde Myers and linebacker Evan McKelvey, so the bye week is perfectly placed.
"I'm glad we have an open week this week before we get into conference play," Holliday said. "We can get guys healthy before we start conference. We're done with our first four games and we get a break here so we have to take this week to get back healthy."
