So, it is arguable to consider Div #4 will be more competitive than Div #1 for 2017???? Let's consider that it may also be better from top to bottom too!

Maybe. But in the end, it only matters at the top. As long as District 4 has the regional powerhouses, the 3 - 6 slots don't matter that much and 4 has the to 2, maybe 3 teams in the region.

This past season they lost their QB 1st game of the season due to broken collar bone has to go with a Soph that's not meant to run that style of offense also they relied on a freshman RB who tore his knee up midseason.

They're also a powerhouse in LAX (or at least used to be). Don't know if these kids just didn't cross over to football or what. But most good HS LAX programs have a good football team since a lot of the kids play both.

Not buying that, I know it d Manassas but it's become pretty diverse in the past 10yrs. Besides I would buy it if she was trying to put on a headset and coach herself. Has to be more with him and his method of coaching.

What a joke, the article is written by what appears to be a local parent if it's the person I'm thinking of. Plus, look at Rivals, ESPN, etc. no stars for a kid that's the "best QB in the NR". If he was anywhere close he'd be all over these websites with offers, multiple stars, write-ups etc.. Not an over-exaggerated piece from what appears to be a local recruiting website.

I've watched this kid play, he's an above average athlete, that's it. My fondest memory was when he slid to prevent being pounded by an opposing defender when he was the QB on the freshman team 2 years ago. Also, the 5"11 height he's listed, maybe if he's standing on his toes.

From what I have seen of the young QB the description of "above average" is about right. If you have a very strong team built around him he will be a winner. If he is expected to carry the team on his back perhaps not so much. I think he will do quite well.

Maybe if you are arguing with yourself.Did you see the bottom half of the division, Woodson, WS & FFX HS, they stink!

The top half LB, SoCo & Rob were owned by Div 1 top teams. Road to states on the North still travels through Centreville/Chantilly area.

0-2 vs. Loudoun County, including a loss to Briar Woods, who finished 4-7 on the year.

I don't see LB being as good as they have been in the past. A new coaching staff, unfavorable schedule doesn't help them at all. The 3 or 4 best players graduated and I don't remember many underclassmen that made a difference.

Westfield and Centreville will be the top team in this area. They both have great coaching staffs and return an number of players.

SoCo will right there in the mix, as they always are. Great athletes and the best WO in the state.

Robinson could be a surprise in the area, hopefully the coaches worked in the off season on a passing game. The defense was very good and looks to continue that.

Hayfield and South Lakes will compete but in the end, I still see Westfield and Centreville the top 2.

You don't get trophies for regular season victories. Don't be mad cause the almighty Loudon County 5A team choked for a second consecutive year in the championship game. Say what you want, but when it counts, Simmons and company always have Westfield prepared for big games.

The main loudoun schools are all very good and the best of D5 is as good or better than the best of D6. That being said WF the past two years has really turned it on in weeks 8,9,10 and the playoffs. The Loudoun schools did not have to deal with the WF teams at their best.
With the FFX schools being split up into two different regions this season will be interesting. WF and CVille will probably be the best in their region with SL, Madison, and Battlefield contending.
The other region is more unclear. SOCO will be good, but the Prince William schools have tons of talent. Hylton, Freedom, Woodbridge, and Forest Park have more talent than the FFX schools. LB, ROBO, and WPOT will need to outcoach them to win in the playoffs. Hard to predict who wins those games.

You are cherry picking stats from the regular season - so enjoy your regular season success. Conference 14 is a very tough and very good football conference - possibly the best in Virginia top to bottom. I don't know if it coaching, lack of improvement throughout the season or what BUT Loudoun schools cannot get it done in the playoffs. I would not have bet against Westfield versus any team in Conference 14 in the playoffs. They got healthy and gelled as a team at the right time two years in a row - beating the best QB in the state of Virginia twice.

Meantime Stone Bridge is going for 1st down from their own 33 on a 4th and 8.

Mike Dougherty is the new, steady hand at the helm of Lake Braddock

by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA

For the past 18 seasons, Coach Mike Dougherty has built his reputation as a coach who rebuilds new and struggling programs. Ironically, Dougherty, who was named the new head coach at Lake Braddock three weeks ago, will be changing his modus operandi, as he takes over a team that finished 11-2 last season.

Starting at Prince Edward in 2000, Dougherty has been a transformer. He left Prince Edward after four seasons to take on a new challenge, as the first coach of an upstart Dominion program in Loudoun County. After five seasons with the Titans, Dougherty moved on to Stonewall Jackson, a program that had not reached the playoffs in almost a decade. Within three years, Dougherty’s 2012 Raider team finished the regular season 9-1 to reach the postseason, and the following season, made the 6A North semifinals.

Seeking another challenge, Dougherty accepted the head position at W.T. Woodson in February of 2014. Woodson had enjoyed some post-season success in the 1980’s and 90’s, but had been reeling through the 2010’s, with a record of 7-23 in the three seasons before Dougherty’s arrival.

The first year was tough, as Woodson finished 2-8. There was a peep of success in 2015, as the Cavaliers raised their record to 4-6. Finally, in 2016, the Cavs finished the regular season at 5-5, and earned a berth to the playoffs, where they lost in the first round to eventual state champion Westfield.

To hear Dougherty speak of W.T. Woodson would give one the impression that he was in an idyllic coaching situation.

“I loved coaching at Woodson. In fact, it is possible that three of our former players will be starting at Virginia Tech this fall. I can’t wait to see them.”

In short, Dougherty was not looking for a job when the vacant Lake Braddock position appeared on the Fairfax County Public Schools website. However, the fact that it became available with the departure of Jim Poythress, intrigued the Cavs’ head whistle.

“This was the first time I wasn’t looking for a job. But when a job like Lake Braddock comes up, you have to be interested. So I applied.”

Buoyed by the improvement shown with his Woodson team, Dougherty’s application drew serious interest, which led to an interview with Lake Braddock officials and eventually, the job.

The Bruins were one of the top teams in Northern Virginia last season, finishing the 2016 campaign with a 9-1 record, and winning two playoff games before being ousted in a surprisingly convincing manner by South Lakes, who toppled Lake Braddock 40-22 on the road.

Lake Braddock will also be missing a number of star players from last year, including two All-Staters – 1,800-yard running back Lamont Atkins and tight end Andrew Park, who both signed with the University of Maryland.

“We graduated nine of our 11 offensive starters, and six of our defensive starters,” said Dougherty, evaluating his team’s needs. “We’re going to have some holes to fill on the line. That group last year was the biggest I had ever seen in high school, averaging about 300 pounds across the offensive line.”

Still, the cupboard is not bare for Dougherty, particularly at a school like Lake Braddock that has enjoyed decades of athletic success in most of its sports.

Asked about players who have stood out so far, Dougherty was quick to name Tyler Metheny, who may fill some of the multi-purpose slots which were vacated with the graduation of Ibrahim Mansaray.

“He’s going to play all over the place.”

Jordan Cobb should be the top defensive back for the Bruins. And Dougherty looks forward to a quarterback competition between Jack Darcy, who split snaps with senior Ty Crabb last season, and Quentin James, a 6-1 rising junior who has been utilized as a cornerback and wide receiver. According to Dougherty, “he (James) did play some quarterback as a freshman, so we’ll have him out there.”

Looking back at his first three weeks, he readily admits that “I have been real impressed so far.”

Dougherty gained another surprise with his move as twelve of his assistants from Woodson will be making the transfer with him, helping to maintain cohesiveness.

But the coach is willing to tweak his system when needed.

“I started out as a double-wing guy. But when I got to Stonewall Jackson, I learned that our players were better when they spread the ball out. And that’s when we started scoring.”

Dougherty is known for his up-tempo offenses, which give defenders scant opportunities for rest. At Woodson, the Cavaliers, led by QB Jojo Heisley, averaged a whopping 77 plays per game.

“Our weapon is our up-tempo (offense). We force our opponents to keep us with us, and the goal is to run 80 plays per game.”

The Bruins and Dougherty will undergo a baptism by fire to start off 2017. Asked about his goal for the upcoming season, the coach was blunt.

“To get through September.”

Indeed, Lake Braddock will open the season against a veritable Murderer’s Row of teams. The August 25 season opener will be on the road against two-time defending 6A champion Westfield. In the second game, the Bruins will host West Potomac (8-4 last year), followed by another home game, against 5A state runner-up Stone Bridge.

In a parting thought, Dougherty summed up his first three games with one telling sentence. “We’ll see what we’re made of really quick.”

Can you say 0-3 Lake Braddock!!! if lucky they win 1 of those games. They still have to play Robinson, SoCo and Oakton. not looking to good for them. 5-5 at best.

HS offenses trying to run all that up tempo stuff, it never works. His goal is to run 80 plays a game? All that that hurry up stuff does it make players make to many mistakes and turn the ball over. The focus becomes on running a number of plays rather then scoring.

The better teams such as Westfield Centreville Robinson, SoCO will shut all that non sense down. I hope he has a back up plan when that happens.

Colonial Forge runs the gauntlet to win the Falls Church 7-on-7

by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA

By all accounts, Saturday’s Falls Church 7-on-7 Tournament was a rousing success.

In fact, the championship game featured an added treat. Squaring off for the title were the host team, the Jaguars, against Colonial Forge, last year’s 6A state semifinalist.

In a sense, the game featured the older…ahem… more experienced, against the new. Prowling the sidelines for Colonial Forge was coach Bill Brown, with over 250 victories in his back pocket, as well as a pair AAA Division 6 state championships, won with Hylton in 1998 and 1999.

On the other sideline was Jaguar coach Said Aziz, fresh off a 7-4 campaign, while sporting a 30-26 career record in five years overall at Falls Church. Aziz has performed wonders with the team since taking over after a 0-10 season in 2011; however, the age and experience difference between the opposing coaches created quite a wide chasm.

How wide? Speaking on Sunday, Aziz noted that he wasn’t sure how many victories his opponent had, but that he would be happy to secure half as many during his career. And finally, the coup de grace. Speaking to the topic of coaching longevity, he added, “I think that he’s been coaching ever since I was born.” When was that? “1980.”

Further review shows that Brown worked his first job, as coach at Potomac High, for 12 years, finishing after the 1991 season, but starting in the fall of … 1980.

Experience, and eventually talent, helped the visitors, who stormed to a 40-13 victory over Falls Church to win the Passing League.

The day featured each of the 24 teams playing five games, one per hour, and in 30-minute intervals to give maximum usage to the six game fields. In all, almost one-third of the region’s 85 schools were in attendance. After the final 1:30 game, the top eight teams were determined and seeded into an eight-game playoff. At 2 PM, all of the teams were set – Dominion, John Champe, Falls Church, Broad Run, Colonial Forge, Madison, Tuscarora, and Washington-Lee. Falls Church toppled former National District rival W-L in the first round, while Broad Run beat Madison, Forge overcame Dominion, and John Champe defeated Tuscarora.

In round two, Falls Church beat Broad Run, while Colonial Forge beat Tuscarora to set up the final.

Bill Brown - Said Aziz

However, he was more serious when talking of the ability of his conference, which will revert back to its National District roots for the 2017 season.

“We did well,” said Aziz. “We don’t get the recognition we deserve (as a conference), but some of our players can play with anybody. Then look at Chad Lewis. He’s the new coach at Edison, but he has a lot of experience and could have coached at any school he wanted. He chose Edison in order to be near his home.”

The old National District was known for its student diversity, and the current list of Capitol Conference (13) schools includes Edison, Falls Church, Marshall, Wakefield, J.E.B. Stuart, Robert E. Lee (Springfield) and Thomas Jefferson for S&T. The one common theme among the schools is that they are all either inside the Beltway, or less than a half-mile outside the ring which circles the D.C. Metro area.

“Inside of the Beltway, it is much more diverse, and you don’t necessarily have as many football players,” said Aziz. Our school is 50% Hispanic, and many of them tend to be more interested in other sports.”

However, now in its seventh year, the 7-on-7 Tournament has been a great success for Aziz. “Part of the reason it works is that we are centrally located (just inside the Beltway and off Rte. 50), and we have room to do it. We use six fields and most of them have recently been changed to turf.” Laughing, he added, “I also like to think that we get along with most schools.”

Other factors include the success of the previous events, a good social media presence to promote the league, and the promise of a well-run, organized league with good competition, as well as five 30-minute games to get in a fair amount of work.

“Guys can get the kinks out and throw the ball around,” said Aziz.

The camp offered veteran coaches a chance to review their troops, but also gave some new coaches a first good look at some of their players. Among the first year coaches in attendance were Mike Grandizio of Paul VI, Joshua Wild of Park View, and John Scholla of McLean.

Wild, in particular, has been struggling to see his new team. The new Patriot is still finishing this school year at his current position in Virginia’s Northern Neck at Westmoreland County HS.

“We didn’t get to have spring practice, so we’ll meet from June 19-23, and then again on June 26-29, with something that I call the “Red Carpet” on the 29th. That way, we’ll have something to build into August,” said Wild, who had only seen his team three times before Saturday.

As long as Aziz can continue avoiding the final SAT weekend of the school year, and drawing top-notch teams to his fields in West Falls Church, the 7-on-7 Passing League should be a fixture for years to come.

In a parting thought, he summed up the day. “We had a lot of good football players out here today.”

These 7 on 7 tournaments are nice for coaches, players, and fans in regard to stats and skill players but that's about it. Unless you have the players in the trenches to allow your offense to execute, or shut down an opponent on the defensive side, they're not much of an indicator. It's fairly easy to throw passes, under a clock, when you don't have pressure in your face. It's also fairly easy for receivers to go across the middle knowing they don't have to fear getting drilled by an opposing DB or LB. Skill can only take you so far in football, don't get me wrong, it's nice to have, but so are solid O & D lines.

Agree, 7 vs 7 is not much but until VHSL allows Spring Football, with pads, this all that there is.

VHSL SHOULD allow for a limited period of time, spring full contact football.

Great coaching. Their Freshman teams aren't usually very good, since they are just learning the game. Then the coaches "coach 'em up" and adjust for what they have. I heard Aziz talk at a clinic last year, and he views it that he is tied to his players, not a system.

LB really screwed the pooch by letting him go.

Look, Aziz has done a nice job for where he is and what he has to work with, but whomever took the time to write that glowing review about winning a 7 v 7 competition obviously has some skin in the game. Go to vhsl-reference.com and take a look at the program over the past five or six years. They have feasted on the weakest teams in the state. I believe Aziz has three wins over teams with winning records on his resume, and those teams were barely that! They get pasted every single time they face anyone who is remotely decent.

Look at this year's schedule. They will smoke the Sisters of the Poor, and get destroyed by South Lakes. Because of their winning record, they will be awarded a decent seed in the playoffs, and get crushed by the first Loudoun team they see.

Broad Run parent here. The Ram the posted on Robinson making it to the finals against Centreville obviously meant to post that at The Onion.

They rolled over and died in the Varsity game last year. No fight, no size, and what is worse... no talent.

If our QB wasn't already defeating the Varsity and played in the JV game, the Spartans would have won that game going away as well.

.500 team, talent, and coaching.

Actually, coaches are dirty so I put them even lower.

Nolan Cockrill verbally commits to Army
by John Harvey, recruitNoVA

Most high school athletes only dream of playing for a state championship. Nolan Cockrill guided Westfield High to back-to-back Class 6A state crown.

The 6-foot-3, 230 pound junior will hope to carry on that championship pedigree to the college level as he recently verbally committed to an appointment to play football at the United State Military Academy in West Point.

“The opportunity to play at the next level means everything and I’m very grateful that I get the chance to attend such a premiere institution, along with playing the sport that I have loved since I was a kid,” Cockrill said.
The junior was a standout on both sides of the Bulldogs last fall. Offensively he caught a pair of touchdowns against Oscar Smith to lead the Bulldogs to a 34-28 double overtime victory in the state championship game. He was also a factor in the run game as an aggressive run blocker that knows how to set the edge.

Defensively, Cockrill anchored Westfield’s attack. He led the team in sacks and was a disruptive force at the trenches for the Bulldogs. He earned conference, regional and state honors on both sides of the ball.

West Point defensive coordinator Jay Bateman called Cockrill last month to extend the offer.

“He told me they loved my skill set and versatility, along with the toughness and the fact that I’m a strong student,” Cockrill said. “The coaches at West Point see me as a defensive end.”
Cockrill noted that there was plenty of interest in him from colleges. He had offers from Elon University and Kent State and had interest from the University of Virginia and James Madison.

He’s not quite sure what he wants to study in college level.

The junior admits he still has unfinished business left at Westfield, including pursuit of another state crown.

“For my senior year, I hope to see more (action) on the defensive side of the ball,” Cockrill said. “But I will play anywhere I can help the team accomplish our ultimate goal.”

This is the football thread not the baseball thread. Are you kidding me, you're posting this for laughs or to troll, so I'll bite. They stunk last year, relied on a freshman RB who tore his ACL & 5'7" QB with a noodle arm. Good luck, you won't even beat Chantilly let alone Madison, there's no way you get by WHS.

Unless the Rams have found a QB that can hit the broad side of a barn they are not beating CVHS (let's face it, CVHS is a better version of the Rams esp @ QB & coaching staff). CVHS has players that can actually throw and catch.

John Harvey did a Nice Job reporting on Another Student Athlete in the Northern Region that will have an Opportunity to Further his Education and Play Football at the Next Level...For Clarity and Fairness to all Parties..

Quotation Marks around a statement mean the Individual being Reported on provided that Statement.

No Quotation Marks, the reporters Words

The Westfield Defense was Led by All-State Players:
Kevin Petrillo
Aaron Daise
Zach Jewell
Joey Free
Nolan Cockrill (3 rivalry games & play-offs)

Jewell in fact was the Team Leader in Sacks, tie-ing or Breaking School record with 15.5 on year.

Additionally the Defense had key Contributions from; Logan Demoney,Naz Calhoun, Eric Schweiger, Cole Roberson, Hunter Lydic, Taylor Morin, Israel McLean, Sadhiq Hinton, Nick Delvechio, Russ Steinhilber and Ladarian Rivers. A Concerted Team Effort aided by "The Leg" and a Coaching Staff that always had them prepared.

Broad Run parent here. The Ram the posted on Robinson making it to the finals against Centreville obviously meant to post that at The Onion.

They rolled over and died in the Varsity game last year. No fight, no size, and what is worse... no talent.

If our QB wasn't already defeating the Varsity and played in the JV game, the Spartans would have won that game going away as well.

.500 team, talent, and coaching.

Actually, coaches are dirty so I put them even lower.


How exactly are the coaches dirty? I have never heard anyone make accuse them of anything even remotely out of line. In fact, the parents I know from Robinson feel it is the exact opposite, that they try too hard to walk the straight and narrow. What do you know?

Okay, but if you're referring to the original article it wasn't about Westfield, it was about Cockrill. Jewell, Petrillo, Johnson, Delaney, Free, etc. have already had articles about them. It's now onto the upcoming graduating class which there seems to be only one who currently holds any offers. Not to be an ass but when you talk about current Westfield football, with the exception of Cockrill, every other kid in my post is technically no longer part of the program.

Is this the same South Lakes team that was beaten like a drum by Westfield 42-12 in this past seasons 6A Championship?

Before you go there, yes, WF graduated a good number of solid players. But they did so going into last season, and the season before, and before, etc.. That's just in case your reply was going to have something like, "WF lost a lot of talented players, may be a down year".

Totally agree. Robinson gets a lot of hate about how they use cut blocking and their general physicality, but none of it is illegal. They play by the rules. I live in the community and the parents seem to really like the staff as people. They don't always agree with who starts or what plays are called, but I never heard a negative word about their character. They have lots of kids out for the team and the kids seem to happy to be a part of the team. That says a lot to me.

Westfield was in a bit of funk following the highly emotional SoCo game. They did not turn out very well for the TCW, SB and BW games. And vs ROB. This was a stretch of games where they battling some significant injuries leaving them without 4 or 5 key starters for every game.

Combine that with well coached and highly motivated teams looking to knock off the defending state champions and/or get revenge for the previous seasons losses and they just did not get the job done. And SB was a state runner-up so that was a darn good team.

The ROB game was the turning point of the season. After that come-from-behind win they did not have another close game until OS. Actually, I take that back, MAD gave them a good battle.

In sum, they got healthy and kept getting better every game. Their week 15 team would have soundly beaten their week 6 team.

Can't believe no one else is backing up dude's claim about Robinson teaching dirty tactics. Cut blocking is one thing, but cut blocking and diving into an occupied lineman's knees is absolutely ridiculous. THEY do teach it, and have for at least the last three years. This is high school. You don't try and win at all costs. Kids have had their seasons ruined by this bullshit. Ask the coaches who play them every year. They know what is up. You think it is fun to see your kid taking on the center one on one, only to have the guard roll into his knee? Not one of the line coaches would hold up on a lie detector. They used to be good. Now they know that they don't have the talent, so they play dirty.

Oh, and the excuses that rolled in about why Westfield lost to Briar and Stone Bridge? Pretty damn funny. You want the truth? The Westfield coaches are better than the 6A coaches that they have to compete against. Talent is close, and if you look back, you would see that Westfield hasn't produced a whole lot more college kids than some of the other top programs. They struggle with Loudoun because Loudoun has similar athletes and top notch coaches. The staff at Westfield almost always take apart a team when they play them a second time. Look at the stats and you can see. A close game in the regular season will be a blowout more often than not in a rematch in the playoffs. And anyone who watched a lot of high school football last year will tell you that 6A was down throughout the state. That helps explain why Stone Bridge manhandled them. Stone Bridge only lost the state because Thompson called for a draw on his own 30 on 4th and 8 when he was already up by 14... and because they had to play Highland Springs instead of a weaker Oscar Smith team.

Boom.

I don't think anyone would disagree. People have been making the argument here for the last 6 years that Westfield is having their success with fewer next level athletes than many of their competitors.

Uh, maybe. But really, South County is the only regular season-playoff rematch Westfield has had the last two seasons so don't know what stats you are looking at.

I don't really buy it. 6A is down this year has been the mantra every single year. Was 6A "up" in 2015?

That was a huge factor. And kinda detracts from your Loudoun having better coaching. Has anyone choked away more state titles in VHSL history than the SB coach?

Maybe. But I will say this, when Westfield needed a defensive stop to win the game against a D1 VHSL All-time record-holding QB they got it done. SB had an almost identical opportunity to close their game.

i can tell you that what Robinson does has been looked at and found to be legal. What you are discribing is not legal, but that is not what they do. All HS offensive lines mess up blocking schemes from time to time and those things get called. No one is teachinng illegal techniques. They would get caught quickly and the penalties would add up. Robinson doesn't get called for any more high low blocks than anyone else. It's football and that stuff happens at times. The Westfield guys need to toughen up and stop with the name calling. It a bad look for a champion.

Read more carefully. It is the Loudoun County (i.e. Broad Run) folks that were bitching about Robinson - not Westfield. They cried a lot about it after the 2015 game also.

Braddock returns a number of skill players, Cobb, Metheny, James, Hanafi, and Darcy at QB, just to name a few. They should easily be in the mix for the region.

Braddock has won 11-12 games for the last 4 or 5 years, this is easily a 11 or 12 or more win team.

The big question, is this the year they finally break thru and beat Westfield or whoever is in the regional final?

Everyone keeps pointing to LB tough schedule, that is no excuse, play the bestif you want to be the best!

Success at the high school level takes a whole community's commitment. Without great middle school an JV Coaches. A single new guy the can't do it without the a lot of people to also put into their own efforts.

How did Colgan perform with their JV & Freshman teams last year? They could be an interesting team in 2017.

I in know way think that South Lakes is the best team. I just don't think they have too many games on their schedule that they could lose. If they run the table they will be the 1 seed if the others have a loss. That's what I'm predicting. I'd say they are the 5th best team in the region.

South Lakes was the big winner in redistricting. Their new district includes Herndon, Langley, McLean, Washington-Lee, and Yorktown. That's five guaranteed wins.

Who is going to beat Braddock, they have a great team coming back.
5 starters on O and 7 on D coming back. This may be the strongest team they have had in recent years.

They have one of the best coaching staffs (former WT Woodson staff) in the state now coaching at Braddock.

With that being said, look for them to run the table and represent the north.

Like a previous poster said, "another coach who got taken to the woodshed by WHS"
If he was such a great coach, how come he couldn't do anything against WHS starters? That game could've been 100-0 if starters stayed in the whole game. Every year we hear,"this is LB's year, best team they've ever assembled" get outta hear with that bs. You lost a stud RB, TE, multiple O-linemen. You're left with a noodle arm QB (he's nowhere near Caleb Henderson) WR's that are nothing special. 6-4, 7-3 at best.

You have a point, those are quite the cream puffs on their schedule, those teams would lose to SOCO, LB, CVHS JV squads

You don't need a stud in every position. Darcy is a very good QB, Quinten, Jordan, Methany and Josef are as good or better then any receiver combos in the region. BTW, was Westfield QB anywhere near as good as Henderson? NO!! They won the state championship. This LB team is loaded, so say what you want and we will see you in December.

What a stupid thing to say - LB, under Doc, will run a one dimensional offense - if the QB is off or the weather sucks then they will be in trouble.

Westfield runs a balanced offense, if the pass isn't working then they will just run for 400 yards and vice versa.

Their closest competition should be either WL or Yorktown. Those Arlington schools always punch above their weight when it comes to football. Both should be terrible, but their coaching keeps them competitive.

They can't get past the bulldogs. It might be psychological, but they just can't seem to do it since Gonzaga dismantled them on national TV 3 years ago. It's like Haddock got the wind knocked out of him and has never recovered for the really big games.

Doc of Lake Braddock, the best coach in the region? I looked him up he doesn't even have a winning record. How does he qualify as the best coach in the region?

If he has the same staff he had at Woodson, they never beat a team with a winning record. They were blown out by all of the top 5-7 teams... I mean absolutely destroyed. How does that qualify as the best staff in the region?

Just saying...Westfield, Centreville, South County, West Potomac, Hayfield and Robinson all have better head coaches and staff.

These are the returning wildcats less transfers and last year's freshman. Trying to remember who their transfers were for this year. Looks like a solid group of kids to build around. They will be tough team as usual.

I see only 2 lineman at or close to 300. The one who's 300 is 5'10 which means he's just fat, the other who goes 290 is soft. The only one touting Centreville is the biased coach who is on staff. It's obviously hard for him to face the reality that Centreville will be a decent team but to crown them the favorite is absurd. Since Haddock's Dream Team vanished after the 2014 season his program has returned to where it was before, mediocrity.

Until proven otherwise, Centreville has a QB problem. Too short and scrawny.

LB is loaded with skill talent. I think they lose to Westfield and then run the table. No way they lose to one run only teams like Stone a ridge and Robinson.

Stone Bridge will beat Braddock, Robinson, West Pot, South County and Oakton will as well.

Doc and his staff doesn't have enough experience in winning games. So any games that are close will most likely go to the opponent who have experienced coaching staffs who know how to win. I just don't see them being better then 5-5 4-6.

Welcome to the big leagues Doc!!

I saw Woodson out at Westfield, they actually looked pretty good. A good QB and a couple of fast receivers with good hands. It looks like the new coach has rallied them and getting things on track.

I think the players realized that coach Doc and the staff was only looking for the next best thing and jumped ship as soon as they could.

Copy & Paste from Washington Post Article. Re: VHSL 2017 Football schedule.

Start the countdown clock: There are only 60 days (two months!) until Virginia high school football season kicks off. That’s 166 days until championship Saturday.

The Virginia High School League released complete schedules for every team across the state on Monday. We’ve been tearing through them looking for the best matchups, buying gasoline for the lawn mower, sharpening our pencils, polishing our camera lenses, debating which schools have the best press boxes.
In other words, we can’t wait for football.

Here are the games we’ve already circled on our calendar. Until then, we’ll be busy X-ing off days in June, July and August.


Aug. 25: Marshall vs. Madison

Madison’s season is already charged with emotion after the tragic death of Coach Lenny Schultz on Saturday. This season opener will be about more than football. The Statesmen squeaked into the 5A playoffs in 2016.


Sept. 1: West Potomac vs. Lake Braddock

Is this finally the year for the Wolverines? West Potomac has lost to Lake Braddock 24-21 in each of the past two seasons. The Wolverines are out to prove they’re over the hump and ready to be considered one of Fairfax County’s top teams.


Sept. 8: Mount Vernon vs. Falls Church

We love this matchup, because who needs defense? The Majors’ quick-strike offense should be in full swing behind quarterback Timmy Heltzel and all-around playmaker Darrien Newton. The Jaguars are ready to keep feeding Dakwandre Marshall, pound for pound maybe the region’s hardest runner.


Sept. 22: Hayfield vs. South County

This game totaled 96 points in 2016, and will once again feature the state’s two top receivers: the Stallions’ Dillon Spalding and the Hawks’ Brian Cobbs. Combined in the 2016 edition of this game, they went for 15 catches, 276 yards and four touchdowns. Bring extra popcorn.


Sept. 22: South Lakes vs. Centreville

The past season made one thing very clear: South Lakes is for real, and the Seahawks return maybe the state’s top rushing duo in Albert Mensah and Spencer Alston. In the middle of a cushy schedule, they face Centreville, which allowed on average just 10.1 points per game last year.


Oct. 13: Hylton vs. Freedom-Woodbridge

By now you’ve heard the name Ricky Slade and all the fits he causes defenses. The Penn State commit ran for 172 yards and two scores against Freedom last year. Hylton still lost. In 2017, can the Bulldogs ride Ricky to a win?


Oct. 20: Tuscarora vs. Stone Bridge

Wait, are you talking about a late-October game between two teams who want to smash the ball at the line of scrimmage? Yeah, this will be fun. Bring a blanket and some hot chocolate and prepare to holler about every holding call.


Oct. 27: Broad Run vs. Briar Woods

Three words: Late. Season. Rivalry. The so-called “Battle of the Burn” has the potential to significantly shift playoff seeding up and down the Virginia 5A, because the Spartans and Falcons have six opponents in common.


Oct. 27: Westfield vs. West Potomac

Will somebody please give West Potomac a break? Nine of their 10 upcoming opponents were 2016 playoff teams. Three of them were 6A North region semifinalists. Here, the Wolverines get two-time defending state champion Westfield on the Bulldogs’ home turf.

Any predictions for wins and losses? I can't say that I've seen their schedule. I think redistricting didn't do them any favors. Some of their easier opponent's we're dropped from their district, like Mt Vernon, Annandale, an tcw, but they kept the tougher teams from their old district. They picked up Robo and Fairfax, but those were already on their schedule

Looking at the schedule they could easily be 6-4 7-3 losses to South County, South Lakes, West Potomac. With incentive to beat LB to show Coach DOC the grass isn't always greener, is a real possibility.

You obviously didn't look at the schedule too closely. Lake Braddock will beat them and so will Robinson. That puts them at 4 losses for sure. They don't play West Pot. They will have toss up games against Langley, Annandale, Yorktown, and West Springfield. If they win all of those they are 6-4. More likely they win some and lose some and end up 4-6 and out of the playoffs.

I think Woodson may be a little better then what people think.
I don't think LB and Robinson will be as good as they have been in the past.

Robinson is 1 dimensional if you stop the run you can beat them.
LB new coaching staff with no track record of winning. I think they will struggle all season

Don't think Mt Vernon is a pushover anymore. If you look at their schedule. 8-2 is probably what will happen. Could be more if their defense improves. New coach seems to have changed a lot. This is their 1st offseason with the coach and I saw them at a 7v7 and they have tons of athletes. They will be interesting to watch this year.

They may make the playoffs, but they've got a long way to go to be a contender. A slightly above average CVille team beat them by 50+ in the playoffs.

Hayfield and West Potomac will be better than them in their District. Could be tough to make the playoffs finishing 3rd in your district.

Obviously, this would change with a different time period but it is what it is.

Top 15 most dominant Virginia high school football programs since 2006
Oscar Smith leads the way in the commonwealth. See which other Virginia squads are in the conversation of most dominant.

Thursday, June 29, 2017
By: Staff Report | MaxPreps.com

Video: Deangelo White is a true inspiration
See a moving touchdown scored by an Oscar Smith player in honor of his father.

Consistency is key to Oscar Smith earning the title of Virginia's most dominant football program since MaxPreps became America's source for high school sports.

The Tigers have a significant number of title game appearances and state titles (four and two, respectively) but that number doesn't lead the way in the state, as other programs have had more finals appearances. What wins the title for Oscar Smith is reaching the Top 25 in the computer rankings every year since 2006.

How important is that? No. 2 Phoebus has five state titles and still trails Oscar Smith.

Larger schools dominate the list. Still, a Class 3 power reached the No. 15 spot in Brookville thanks to two titles and another runner-up finish.

Here is how the points break down:

1. 20 for a state title

2. 10 for a state championship game appearance

3. Other points are based on where a team finished in the final MaxPreps Virginia Football Computer Rankings presented by the Army National Guard. For example, if a team finished No. 1 overall, it would receive 25 points. If it finished 25th overall, the team would get one point. No points are awarded if the team did not finish in the Top 25.

Interesting that the article states it was written by the staff, curious as to who actually wrote it. I'm certain whomever it was is based in the Beach area. MaxPreps obvious infatuation for the programs down there are blatantly obvious.

Hayfield, West Potomac should vie for Gunston District title, but watch for sleepers
by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA

The Gunston District will be another of the five-team groupings in Northern Virginia. Yet, a cursory look at the teams, based on last year’s records, shows a potential dead heat between Hayfield and West Potomac, with either Mount Vernon or T.C. Williams nipping at their heels.

Both the Hawks and Wolverines finished last season with a 9-3 record. Hayfield boasts U. Maryland commit Brian Cobbs (6-3, 200) at wide receiver. Cobbs caught 74 balls for over 1,100 yards last year. He will be joined by J.J Pailin, who hauled in 35 passes.

But who will throw the ball to them? The loss to graduation of Jacob Keeney (3,565 yds., 34 TD in 2016) at quarterback will be almost impossible to replace, but Coach Eric Henderson is working fervently to groom an adequate replacement.

West Potomac did not lose a game by more than seven points last year, and that was the season-ending 21-14 loss to James Madison in the second round of the playoffs. Daiimon Cleveland and his 1,100 yards will return to his tailback position. On paper, the Wolverines don’t have a player over 210 pounds listed on their MaxPreps roster, so they may rely on speed and technique in the early games. Coach Jeremiah Ross may have had the best reply to a reporter’s question last season. When asked about his upcoming game strategy against a team that had beaten them a year before, Ross matter-of-factly replied, “Not lose again.”

Mount Vernon (5-5) could play the spoiler this season. The playoffs eluded Monty Fritts’ Major team in 2016, but they return QB Tim Heitzel (2,223 yards, 24 TD last season) for his senior year, as well as small, but agile tailback Darrien Newton (515 rushing yards in 2016).

T.C Williams (5-6) did make the post-season, but they lost the opener 26-0 to West Potomac, a team they almost beat, falling just 22-21 in midseason. The Titans suffered from a bit of inconsistency last year, but count on Coach James Longerbeam to restore more pride (meaning wins) on King Street. Hopefully, this year’s version of “T.C.” will be a solid day game team as the Titans’ home, Parker-Gray Stadium, does not host night games due to neighbor complaints in the past.

Annandale (3-7) lost its final four games to spiral away from a .500 season, and also graduated many key seniors, including running back Jalen Jackson.

GAMES TO WATCH:

Sept. 22: South County @ Hayfield
If the Stallions and Hawks find suitable replacements for Jack McDaniel and Jacob Keeney, this outcome could resemble a basketball score. A matchup of Northern Virginia’s best two receivers in Cobbs (Hayfield) and Dillon Spalding of South County. A key early season matchup between two neighboring schools.

Oct. 20: West Potomac @ Hayfield
Eighth game of the season for both teams, and this one could decide the Gunston District title if West Potomac can survive it’s opening three games against Briar Woods, Lake Braddock and James Madison. Coach Ross, asked about his goal for 2017, replied, “Survive September.” If the Wolverines do that, Hayfield will have its hands full.

Oct. 27: T.C. Williams @ Mt. Vernon
In case you missed the movie, T.C. Williams remains the only public high school in the City of Alexandria. Mt. Vernon is ten miles down Rte. 1 and in Alexandria (Fairfax County). In spite of the distance, the two have developed a rivalry that dates back to the early 1980’s when each athletic program accused the other of poaching its players. There’s a good chance that either, or both teams, could enter this contest at 5-3 or even 6-2. If Mt. Vernon wins, it could make the regular season finale against West Potomac on November 3rd much more meaningful.

South Lakes looks to be the class of the Liberty District
by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA

This year, he revamped Liberty District has a clear-cut favorite in South Lakes. Coming off a 12-2 record, the Seahawks made it all the way to the 6A North final last season, with only Westfield blocking their entrance to the state championship at Hampton University. In 2017, they are the only returning team in the Liberty that finished over .500 last year.

It is highly doubtful that this scenario will replay itself in 2017. Any team entering the October 6th district opener with a winning record should maintain it through the five Liberty games, which run consecutively to end the regular season.

Washington-Lee (5-6) and Yorktown (4-6) stand the best chance of clinching a winning record and a spot in the 6A North playoffs. The Patriots may have the advantage, as last year’s mark was an aberration by Coach Bruce Hanson’s standards; in fact, it was only his third losing campaign in 32 seasons. W&L lost the linchpin in their aerial circus last year with the graduation of quarterback Ricardo Mestre, and the Generals will need to replace several other key offensive players.

Langley (2-8), Herndon (1-9) and McLean (1-9) struggled last year, and only McLean might start as a favorite in their opener, when they travel to Fairfax, a 0-10 team last year, on August 25.

Games to Watch:

August 25 – South Lakes @ W. T. Woodson: Already head and shoulders above their district counterparts, the Seahawks will probably face their stiffest opponents in the out-of-district lineup, which comprises the first five games.

There is no guarantee that Woodson will push South Lakes to its limits. The Cavaliers were 5-6 last season, and then lost their coach Mike Dougherty to Lake Braddock. However, his replacement, Jared Van Acker, led Battlefield to a 16-7 mark in 2015 and 2016, and his WTW troops have been busy in the offseason.

September 22 – Centreville @ South Lakes: A mid-season tangle against the Wildcats may prove to be the South Lakes’ toughest regular season game. But this year’s Seahawks remain loaded. Devin Miles returns to the quarterback position, and brings his dynamic senior running back duo of Albert Mensah (1,294 yards, 25 TD in 2016) and Spencer Alston (1,004 yards, 20 TD). Mensah, even at 5-8 and 205, is also a force at defensive end.

November 3 – Washington & Lee @Yorktown: Regardless of the team records, this final week matchup pits two Arlington rivals in a game that may guarantee a playoff spot for one of the teams.

Yorktown’s Hanson, seen at the Falls Church 7-on-7 Passing League, named four players to keep an eye on. They are, Ryan Wool (WR), Adam Luncher (CB/K), Paul Dalzell (6-2, 185, WR/TE), and Davis Patterson (6-3, 180, 4.55 in the 40, a WR with Division I potential, according to the coach).

Washington-Lee will miss Mestre behind center, and may need to run the ball more. The progression of Tanner Wall, or a new QB, could dictate the offensive scheme. If they run more, they will rely on senior Larry Carpenter and junior Jabari Johnson. However, the Generals will need to shore up a defense that gave up over 31 points per game last year.

Can Westfield repeat as 6A Champions? Concorde District play may tell the story

by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA

With the upcoming realignment among football teams in the VHSL, old rivalries will be restored, and others will be renewed. Some districts are going ten teams deep, while a few, including the Concorde, Gunston and Western in Northern Virginia, will only carry a quintet of squads.

recruitNoVA.com embarks on its “Games to Watch” from among the 12 districts (almost 13, if one counts the overstuffed Northwestern with its baker’s dozen, including six teams from our readership zone.) Of course, there are also the eight private schools, strewn among three conferences (IAC, MAC, VISAA-I).

We start with the renewed and revamped Concorde District. Five 6A North teams will vie for the district crown, as well as a top-16 ranking in the pool of 27 teams which is needed to earn a first-round playoff berth.

Westfield (13-2, 6A state champions), under coach Kyle Simmons, is the top dog and will remain so until they are knocked out of contention. The Bulldogs lost two of their first six games last year, before running off with nine straight victories and a second consecutive state championship.

James Madison (11-2 in 2016) hosted Westfield in a 6A North semifinal game, but lost 31-13 to end their season. The Warhawks have suffered losses on and off the field. First, the family of star running back Landan Thomas relocated to Northern Florida for business purposes. More recently, and much more tragically, their coach, Lenny Schultz, was killed last weekend, struck by an oncoming vehicle while stranded in the median of the Capital Beltway in Springfield reattaching a boat to his pickup truck. Schultz’s son Albert IV, 24, was also critically injured.

Centreville (9-3) had their playoff run silenced with a narrow 22-20 loss to South Lakes in Round 2. The Wildcats, with Chris Haddock at the helm, will be looking for a boost to push them to the district title.

Chantilly (4-6) replaced coach Mike Lalli with Sean Curry and hopes to reverse its playoff fortunes in 2017. Oakton (4-7) made the round of 16, but were blasted by South Lakes 54-14 in the opening playoff game.

GAMES TO WATCH:

Aug. 25 – Westfield @ Lake Braddock: A tough opener on the road for the Bulldogs. Lake Braddock finished 11-2 last season before a surprising 40-22 loss to South Lakes at home in the 6A North semis. Jim Poythress has left the Bruins, replaced by veteran coach Mike Dougherty, who was last seen with W.T. Woodson for the past three seasons. Lake Braddock lost 1,800 yard tailback Lamont Atkins (U. Maryland), Ibrahim Mansaray, and a host of key role players, but returns Jack Darcy, who rotated with Ty Crabb at QB in 2016, and Tyler Metheny at wide receiver. Ben Dizon should see more carries this season, while Josh Ahern (6-3, 215, Jr.) will anchor the linebacking corps on defense.

Oct. 6 – James Madison @ Westfield: The Bulldogs were 4-2 after six games last year and almost fell off the rails. It led to a meeting of the minds between Simmons and RecruitNoVA.com Player of the Year, quarterback Rehman Johnson. After the 34-28 state title win over Oscar Smith, Johnson said, “Coach (Simmons) gave me the confidence (after Game 6) to run our plays and the trust for me to throw the ball. He realized our talent and potential and opened up the playbook.”

The Bulldogs never lost again. Ironically, Madison will be their seventh opponent of 2017.

But Johnson is gone, as well as a host of other Westfield standouts such as receivers Ivory Frimpong an Sean Eckert. Noah Kim is slight of build (6-2, 160) at quarterback, but he is only a sophomore and has been busy progressing rapidly on the camp circuit this year, as well as with a dozen signal calling colleagues at the Fairfax Football Academy. Matt Cirillo (5-10, 215, Sr.) had some key carries in the title game as a fullback, while Taylor Morin is hoping to develop into a formidable target at receiver. The defense is solid.

Madison counters with its own stalwart defense, led by middle linebacker Nate Leas (6-0, 205). However, it will be the team’s ability to recover from the loss of Coach Schultz which will dictate their fate this season. By Game 7, this could be a watershed contest for the Warhawks.

Nov. 3 – James Madison @ Centreville: If Westfield falters in 2017, this final regular season game could have district championship implications.

For Madison to win, they will need to reconstruct their offense, which lost graduating QB Jacob Choutka after last season. The Warhawks have three upperclassmen listed for the position on their roster (Patrick Berry, Raul Jurado and John Cothran), but Cothran, a senior, is the only one to throw a pass (just one) last season.

Centreville graduated Jameel Siler, but looks to junior Presley Egbers to lead the offense. Egbers (6-0, 170) only threw a handful of passes during the regular season, but was thrust into action for the South Lakes playoff game, as Siler’s receiving ability put him at the slot, in an attempt to confuse the Seahawks. Egbers completed four of seven balls for 114 yards, and a 75-yard TD to Matt Brown. He has also been busy on the camp circuit and should be ready to go.

Deonte Edmonds looks to be the top returner (eight yards per carry) at running back as a junior. And Bassie Kanu (5-10, 170) is a beast at cornerback, and one who carries a chip on his shoulder entering senior season.

I know EVERYONE on FFU dislikes or even hates Oscar Smith Football & lumps them in with Ocean Lakes for being cheaters BUT, no one seems to understand that some of their kids grew up in truly adverse environments! The Beach kids mostly live in middle class, 2 parent homes and have choices that just aren't available to South Norfolk kids.

Below is a true, honest depiction of a success story of how teachers, counselors and coaches can make a real difference in someone's life. From the hood to a real chance to get out, that's all those kids are looking for. Just realize the urban areas in most every school have kids with the same challenges.


Michael Wyche has been from the bottom to the top. His story is an inspiration.

By Andy Hilton, recruit757

A lot of football fans will see a lineman, who had a few bumps along the way. Fans will see a kid who had trouble in school, played for a power house in Oscar Smith, ended up in JUCO, but finished his college career on top of his game at the University of Miami.

On the surface, it looks like a story where Michael Wyche had to fight hard for success. It’s so much more than that.

Michael Wyche was born of a chance encounter between his mother and his father. They didn’t know each other until one night, when Michael’s dad was running from the police, he ran into an apartment to hide. He not only escaped arrest, but he also met Michael’s mother.

“They were in Harvard Apartments in South Norfolk. I have no idea what he was being chased for. He eventually got arrested and got a 40-year prison sentence. He went to jail in 1996, when I was two-years old. My mother got her tubes tied after having three children. She wasn’t supposed to have me. I’m the baby. All of my siblings are in their late 30’s (Cynthia, Melanie, and Gilberto),” said Wyche. “I was unexpected. My parents were never a couple. They were just good friends.”

Michael’s father, James Walker Jr., was not told that he would have a child.

Dorothy “Eve” Wyche, kept it a secret.

“He was 16 going on 17 at the time and she was 34 years old. He lied to her about his age,” Wyche said. “He was in prison by 21. He met me when I was one-year-old. He saw my mother’s mother in the store and she told him he had a son. My mother never told him because my father was crazy. He was a gangster. He lied to my mom and told her that he was older than he really was.”

Michael was off to a tough start. His parents were never together. His mother lived in South Norfolk, in poverty, with other kids to raise.

My momma was struggling. I didn’t want to leave her (when I got older) because I didn’t want to see her end up dead one day. There was fighting in the house. We ended up getting put out of our house and ended up living in a shelter in Portsmouth (Virginia). Most of my family wouldn’t let me stay with them. They said I was a bad kid. They didn’t want me around,” admitted Michael.

Poverty, homelessness, domestic violence… it’s a bad recipe for raising children. Michael Wyche grew up knowing the streets and knowing very little about the traditional education that could get him out of his situation.

Wyche started getting into trouble at the age of 11. He was sent to the Challenge Academy at Camp Pendleton. That involves a military approach to discipline and learning. He was introduced back into public school, going to Oscar Smith Middle, but was expelled and had to go to a SECEP school (Southeastern Cooperative Educational Programs). That’s typically for learning disabled and behaviorally challenged students. There, his life took a turn for the better.

“I found my mentor. Alexander Cheeseboro got a hold of me at SECEP.”

Cheeseboro is a 6-5 350 pound hulk of a man who played college football himself. He called on Michael to consider his actions. He wanted Michael to care for himself and those around him.

“In the streets of South Norfolk, (the gangs) told us you’re going to either sell drugs or play sports. Most of the guys my age had our mind made up. We were going to sell drugs, then go to jail or die,” Wyche said.

It takes a village to raise a child. Between Cheeseboro and teacher Donna Notti at Oscar Smith, Wyche was able to make a right turn.

“She really cared about me. She was my resource teacher. I didn’t like school at all. I barely even paid attention in school. As a matter of fact, I used to go to school and sell drugs. I just stopped. She saved my life. I wanted to play football.”

“(Oscar Smith Football) Coach Morgan built a brotherhood and I wanted to be a part of that. Coach Morgan knew what type of person I was. He told me that I couldn’t be part of the brotherhood unless I stopped what I was doing. He said ‘You either want to go rob a bank, or you want to go to college. I can help you do either one’.”

That was in his tenth grade year. Michael had been diagnosed with a personality disorder. He was assigned to Special Education. He was dealing with depression. It took a lot of academic work for him to graduate from high school.

“Miss Notti taught me how to read because my reading level was borderline illiterate when I got to Oscar Smith. My grandma would try to get me to read, but I was in the street so much (as a kid) that I didn’t care about reading. I didn’t care about school. She would call on me to read in class and I would act crazy just to get kicked out of class. I knew I couldn’t read.”

“Miss Notti was crying to me in the hall. I’ve never seen any teacher cry about me. She told me how she had my back. She told me I didn’t have to worry about anything. I had never heard that before. I thought it was me against the world.”

“I was tutored by Miss Notti in high school and she continued to tutor me in college. I talked to her every single day. She’d send me words of the day to help my vocabulary. Nobody would see me with dreads and tattoos and expect me to know these big words.”

Still, he had learning disabilities and had to go to junior college just to continue playing football after high school. He didn’t qualify otherwise.

“I want everybody to know that (I struggled) because I want the kids to know. I’m not ashamed, because I went to college,” Wyche said. “At Junior College in California, I had maybe $100 a month. My grandparents sent me money. I didn’t know that you had to pay to eat; that you had to pay for an apartment. I ended up selling drugs again. I realized that it’s wrong. I gained nothing from that. I’m a leader. I promised my momma before she died that I won’t do that anymore.”

Wyche was at East L.A. College when his mother passed away in 2013. That was another turning point for him.

“After her funeral, I had to get on a plane because I had a game the next day. I really didn’t have time to reflect on (her death). It took me into a depression. I had suicidal thoughts. I never really worked through it.”

Wyche went through the recruiting process once again coming out of Junior College. He was getting the college work done, and he had to decide where he would finish playing college football.

“In college, I always had my work done because of Miss Notti. I always felt more comfortable with her than with the tutors in college.”

Wyche landed in Miami, but had never dealt with his mother’s death. He was mad. He was depressed.

“I took a job working in a restaurant. That was like taking a lion out of the jungle,” he said. “All these years, I had been playing football. I didn’t know how to work at a restaurant. It was owned by Ray Allen.”

Allen, then a star for the NBA’s Miami Heat, was winding down his professional basketball career. Even pro athletes who make millions want to have something to invest their time and money into when they finish playing sports. He retired from the NBA in 2014.

“He’s just a good person. He was there for me. I don’t know why. The first day I met him, I was working for him and he told me to take a ride with him. We got in his Rolls Royce Phantom. I had never been in a Rolls Royce before. We went down south (Homestead, FL) to this Range Rover dealership to pick up his car. He had me drive his car back. The whole way down there he was giving me knowledge about life and things like that.”

“Ray and I had a chance to talk. I told him everything that was going on and he sat there and listen to me like an uncle or a big brother. He told me that I could change anything, but I have to be the one to do it. He told me that he hoped my story wouldn’t end where I was.”

At the time, Wyche was playing football, but he was still depressed. He 395 pounds. He admits he was out of shape.

“I started working out with Ray. He had to make me run, but we had to have fun. I was 400 pounds! We ended up playing basketball. It was the first thing I learned to play growing up. We played pick-up games, and in all the games we played, I never saw him miss a shot. He would always pick me on his team. We would go over to his house, cook on the grill, talk outside on the beach. Though he had never seen me play, he told me he loved me like a brother. That meant a lot to me.”

Wyche finished his playing career at the University of Miami in Florida with ten credits left to go. He will earn a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology once he finishes that work. In the meantime, he’s trying to realize his NFL dream.

Wyche has gotten a chance to mini-camp with the Green Bay Packers. If a job offer doesn’t come from the Pack, there are several other teams showing interest. Mike is leaving that in the hands of his agent.

“When I left the field at Green Bay, I gave Coach McCarthy a hug and told him thank you for the opportunity. I told him he don’t know me, and he doesn’t what he’s done for me. He asked me to explain and I told him what’s good doesn’t have to be explained. Just know that you gave a diamond in the rough the opportunity of a lifetime. That’s big in my city.”

He’s also pursuing a career in motivational speaking. Michael feels as though his story needs to be told.

“My story will take you high and take you low. It will pick you back up. I know what it feels like to live in the hood with no lights on. The water just got cut off. When the water man left, we would go back out there and turn the water back on. I’ve been in those situations. I’ve been in the situation where you don’t have any food and don’t know what you’ll eat that day. I’ve been there when Christmas comes around and there are no gifts. My mom was selling drugs and selling everything out of the house just to get high. I’ve seen people get shot. I’ve seen someone with their head blown completely off their body. I’ve seen that. I learned how to cook drugs at 11 years old. I’ve also learned how to fight through adversity.”

“I’ve gotten back on my feet to keep going. When you fall on your back, if you can look up, you can get up.”

Shows you how well the article was researched. They probably didn't know that Robinson has moved into this district. Robinson will probably be the 2nd or 3rd best team in the district. SOCO has the most talent. Robinson and Lake Braddock are probably even. Then there's a huge drop off. Robinson may have the best coaching staff in the district. That may help them win one they probably shouldn't.

Braddock has the most talent in this conference, although they lost Atkins, they return just about all of the skill players including the QB.

New coaching staff that is the best in the state, this wont be the same old Braddock teams from the past. This team will put up a ton of points and will be the best defensive team in the state

They are a slam dunk for the conference title, north region title and state title.

Coach Doc says this is the most talented team he has ever seen, so be ready

What I see that wasn't expected, that Robinson is right in the middle of the top teams of the Northern Region. The question will be IF they will be right there again in 2017.

Every other team seems to be what most people would expect. The perennial powers have well developed programs. They win championships when they have the talent to push them to that next level.

VA deserves some national recognition type games & getting a Stone Bridge vs Westfield or Highland Springs vs Oscar Smith game to start the season off each year could do that. I would love to set a poll up to see the results.

A couple of points here.

I have seen Robinson play a few times, and I believe what they teach is a cut block, not a chop block. A chop block involves a double team, with one guy standing the defender up, and the other taking his legs out. A cut is one guy taking the defender out at the waist. It's done from an angle, and is tough to work through. Oh, and cut blocking is still legal, as long as it happens at the LOS. So there is nothing dirty about what Robinson teaches.

For VA to start getting more national recognition, the schools need to start playing more out of state, big time competition. Many of the "big time" high school teams travel for games against elite teams. A top team playing an in-state team will not draw any national interest, at least not if they are VA teams. HS football here is just not considered great on a national level.

For one of the county's largest schools... Robinson is a SEVERE underachiever in football and most boys sports. Outside of their LAX programs, that school is mediocre in about everything. Their school has more or less 600 more students that say... Oakton YET the Rams still couldn't beat them last season. The Rams should have no issues but their backwards offensive philosophy combined with the softest and most whiny pretentious athletes (seriously) in the County are a reason why they haven't and will NOT be relevant in the area for many years to come. "Ram Pride" my ass go back to GLax state titles and preseason hype... the only things Robo does well!

As a Robinson parent, I have to agree with Robo underachievers. Especially when it comes to football. Hell, sports in general. The school really does not care about sports, or winning. They have a good lacrosse program because of the local feeder systems. Nothing the school does. They appear to have a very good wrestling coach, but that is just luck. Their basketball programs are run by the most inept coaches they could possibly find. Not sure how either of those guys still have a job.

As to football, my kid plays football, and I can tell you, without doubt, they are not trained to play dirty. If you think they are "roiding", you obviously have never seen kids, or programs, that actually do the stuff. One of the reason our team was so bad this past year was we were very weak and small. My in-laws came in from Georgia for a game, and thought our Varsity was the JV. When we played LB, it looked like a high school team against a youth club. So not only are they not on some kind of steroid program, they're not really on much of a weight program.

The coaches philosophy would work if he had some bigger linemen, or a QB who could pass and force the defense to cover the entire field. I know they are anticipating throwing the ball much more this fall, since they believe the new QB has a far superior arm to the last guy. We'll have to see on that.

Their may be a lot of issues with Robo and their sports program, but the FB coach being dirty is certainly not one of them. The guys is so clean it's infuriating.

I have been happy with the Robo coaching staff. They know to keep it in perspective. Too many parents out there thinking their kid is he next OBJ or Cam Newton. Get a grip folks, this is HS football. Enjoy your 4 years kids and make sure you get good grades, since it's a low probability that you're leaving here for a D1 ride, much less anything beyond that. The Robo staff stresses good grades first, which is going to carry these kids a lot further, than how many touchdowns they score.

I really can't believe what what I am reading here. Robinson probably has more more combined state sports titles than any high school in Fairfax County (I would think Lake Braddock and Oakton probably close behind). They may not be so great in the big 3 (football, basketball, baseball) but they are always competitive. Every school can't have the very best coach in every sport.

I haven't seen Robinson play too much lately, but when someone claims the kids are small, weak, and soft, the coaches probably aren't the problem. Also, hasn't Robinson been above average the last few years. I'm a Westfield fan and they've played us as tough as anyone and I remember them beating centreville and stone Bridge recently. If they don't have elite talent, but are still competing with the State title contenders I'd say the coaches are doing well.

How is LB picked 3rd in the conference, we have 5 returning starters on offense and 5 returning starters on defense, including the starting QB, coming back. A very good JV and freshmen team last as well.

This on a team that went 11-2 and with a deep playoff run. We beat South County and beat Robinson twice last year. Why are they picked ahead of us?

I also understand that we have put together the best coaching staff in the state, lead by coach Doc.

So what gives with this 3rd place finish?

You want to know why you're ranked 3rd? Do you really want to know? Let me begin. For starters you just lost every single offensive lineman that played a snap last year. Every single one.... You return a QB who SPLIT reps. He essentially only has 6 games under his belt. You bring back a couple slot kids who got time but you don't return a starting running back. Not a single one.

On defense you just lost most of your front 7 and half your secondary. Say what you want about the previous Lake Braddock coach (in my opinion one of the best based on his record and history in the state) but they were consistent on defense regardless of who was playing for them.

Then you bring a coach who was I believe 10-20 (we won't include his playoff losses ((2)) and his playoff wins ((0)) and try to sell the idea that he's the best coach in the state. His best years at stonewall were when he rode the talent of a couple kids who all went to Virginia Tech and played.

And lastly you just LOST one of the best staffs in the state. Whoever picks up braddock's leftovers is getting a steal. It will be an average year for the Bruins filled with glorious tweets from this "Doc" guy. The fans will burn down the castle and a new king will be crowned. Burke does not settle for mediocrity

Who needs a running back, coach Doc runs a wide open fast paced spread.

The QB will throw 40-50 passes a game and can also be the running back.

He did well at Woodson, had them in the playoffs last year.
Imagine what he will do with the talent LB has.

He brought his entire staff, so everyone is on the same page.

I see nothing but big things from LB this year

LB does not have the best staff in the state, hell, ROBO, SOCO, CVILLE, WF, & a few others are far superior to the new staff. One question, how did that spread work for LB in the post season in years past? Not very well, they moved to a more run heavy offense the past couple years because when they got to the post season and played strong defenses they were shut down. Look at their losses to WF, all WF did was blitz on every down, something they rarely do, and take away LB's passing attack. Bottom line, the spread is great for regular season but name one team in the past 5-6 years from NOVA who won a state title with the spread offense.......

The spread offense works great if you are in an area that allows a ton of practice. Many states now allow actual spring practice, and most spread schools spend the spring and summer running 7 on 7. Not the short 7 on 7 season they do around here, but as soon as the spring semester starts, 7 on 7 practice starts, and runs through the summer. Additionally, states down south end their spring sports season before school is out, so that spring football gets at least two weeks with everyone in school, and not competing with other sports. All of this extra time gives the QB and receivers time to develop better timing, and the coaches time to put in much more complex passing games. With the time VA schools have, and the little time devoted to 7 on 7 in NOVA, teams cannot develop the complexity required for a true HS spread offense. Which is why the only time you will see a spread work around here is when you have a QB who can through all over the field, sideline to sideline at least 30+ yards.

I saw the LB QB during 7 on 7, and he will be a good HS QB, but not a game changer.

Are you related to Doc or something? Of course you need a running back! Just ask Westfield...

Go ahead and throw the ball 40-50 times a game. You are doing the region a massive favor. You also didn't dispute anything else I said. You don't have a lot of solid players and will have to accept that at some point.

You are trying to speak this narrative into existence. Just because you say it louder doesn't mean it's true. If you truly care about Doc you will set the bar low for him and save him his job. He cannot live up to the standards of winning. Make exacuses for him and blame the kids or lack of talent for a couple years then move on to another school.

Doc and his staff are on the same page you say? Is that page 1 or page 2 of the playbook that they're all stuck on, because that's what the Woodson offense looked like. Couple screens here and there maybe run inside zone for a gain of -2 then get the punt squad ready.

Bold prediction for LB this year, their punter will be all state from gaining a lot of net yards and getting lots of practice

Hylton has the star power in Ricky Slade. Freedom is the team with the best returning record in the Cardinal District.

by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA

Ricky Slade.

To follow the Cardinal District in 2017 this season is to know that the Hylton running back, bound for Penn State next year, will be the focal point of the district.

And why not? The 5’10, 185-pounder entered last season as the top-rated Class of 2018 running back nationwide in some recruiting service circles. His junior season didn’t disappoint, with over 1,790 yards on the ground, 338 receiving yards on 25 catches, and 23 TD’s by land and air.

Slade committed to the Nittany Lions in February. If he was still unknown to some fans, his talents went viral last week. At “The Opening” camp, Slade accentuated his juke and miss move on a defender during the “Make ‘Em Miss” drill with a back flip that found its way on to social media, including a Penn State sports site. In fact, it was the first of two flips he would do that day, as Slade was widely seen as the offensive MVP of the camp.

And he still has a senior year to play.

In fairness, there will be plenty more to see in the Cardinal this year. Actually, Slade’s Hylton team (6-5) doesn’t even boast the best returning team record. That accolade would belong to Freedom (8-3).

If Slade is the #1 running back of the present for Prince William County, then Freedom’s Tyquan Brown is the #1-A back of the present, and shining light for the future. Brown gained 1,649 yards with 12 touchdowns last year, as a sophomore with about the same size (5-9, 185) as his better-known counterpart. Expect Brown to be headlining here and in many other outlets this fall. The Eagles could help their collective cause with an enhanced passing game.

Four of the seven teams return with losing records, including Forest Park and Potomac (4-6), Woodbridge (3-7) and Gar-Field (1-9). A fifth team, Colgan, is beginning its first year as a varsity squad, but starts the season with an 8-1 jayvee record against a full district schedule from last year and DeMatha transfer Justin Kapp behind center.

GAMES TO WATCH:

Sept. 15: Colonial Forge @ Hylton: A good barometer game for Coach Tony Lilly’s Bulldogs. Colonial Forge (11-3 in 2016) advanced all the way to the 6A South finals where they dropped a 27-20 heartbreaker in overtime to Oscar Smith. Forge returns 6-4, 240 lb. tight end/defensive end extraordinaire Mitch Shinskie and wide receiver Zack Kindel, and has the added distinction of ending Hylton’s season last year with a 23-0 playoff win.

Sept. 29: Freedom @ Hylton: The top two Cardinal District contenders meet in an early district matchup. More importantly, it will showcase Freedom’s Brown against Hylton’s Slade. First runner to 200 yards wins? The winner of this game may have the inside track to the district title in the final five weeks. Get a ticket now, as both of these guys will be playing on Saturday’s soon.

Nov. 3: Woodbridge @ Gar-Field: As is usually the case with rival games, you can throw the teams’ records out the window. Gar-Field has to play its first three games on the road, but the plus side is that five of their six Cardinal District games, including this regular season finale, will be at home. The Indians, under new coach Tony Keiling, have their numbers back up and should be able to locate more talent as their mission to reverse last year’s 1-9 mishap season molds into reality. Old time rival game, and that’s a good enough reason to go.

Colgan treansfer!!!!

"Colgan, is beginning its first year as a varsity squad, but starts the season with an 8-1 jayvee record against a full district schedule from last year and DeMatha transfer Justin Kapp behind center."


So, who here is bold enough to think Colgan will challenge for a playoff spot in 2017? Are they taking any talent away from adjacent schools?

The Madison hire is an interim hire. They will go get someone new after the season. Really there were no other options there.

Horrible situation. Would love to see those kids have a great season.

Two players don't make a team, football is a team sport. If you don't have an O-line that can open holes, those two RB's aren't going to mean a thing. Also, if you don't have a passing game, opponents will just stack the box to shut down the running game. Last but not least, if you don't have defense or special teams, having 2 quality RB's won't get you many W's. My only question is, didn't both of those RB's play for SL's last year? If the answer is yes then why didn't they get to states last year?

Centreville - Chris Haddock
Centreville Counts on Defense to Clinch Concorde Crown
by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA

Team: Centreville (Clifton, VA)
Classification/District – 6A/Concorde
2016 Record – 9-3 (lost to South Lakes 22-20 in second round of 6A North playoffs)
Head Coach – Chris Haddock
Mascot – Wildcats

The Wildcats pulled off one huge win last year, an 8-7 squeaker over Lake Braddock, and came within a whisper of meeting the Bruins for a second time, in the 6A North semifinals. However, South Lakes pulled off a 22-20 win in the game’s final minutes to end Centreville’s season.

As expected, the Wildcat defense provided stiff opposition to the Seahawks last November. And for Centreville to catapult over the heap of teams which includes South Lakes, Madison, Lake Braddock and 6A state champion Westfield, it will be the defense with which Coach Chris Haddock pins his hopes.

Last year, the Wildcat defenders gave up 13.1 points a game, the third best mark in 6A. This year, the bar will be set higher.

“(The defense is) very strong,” said Haddock. “I expect they will give up an average of less than a touchdown a game.”

If the defense can hold the opposition to under ten points a game, the offense will be able to survive its probable growing pains. Jameel Siler graduated after last year, and Presley Egbers will take over as quarterback for Centreville. Egbers (5-10, 180), just a junior, has shined in various camps this spring and summer and shows FCS potential as a college player, according to Haddock. He will be joined in the backfield by senior running backs Daequan Williams-Person and Bassie Kanu. The trio will be blessed with a large offensive line in front of them.

“The offensive line should be one of the best in a decade,” said Haddock. It is headed by Jackson Schule (6-7, 310), Thomas Bryant (6-3, 270) and Brock Assel (6-3, 260), all Division I prospects. As long as the line holds up, the Wildcats should find success running, easing the pressure from Egbers to move the ball through the passing game.

Junior linebackers Tre’ Maxwell (6-2, 190) and Lamar Horner (6-1, 200) will shore up the middle of the defense for Haddock, while Kanu (5-11, 190) and Jordan Wright (5-10, 185) should fend off plenty of passes from their defensive back positions.

Others to watch: Charlie Salette (6-2, 190, RB/LB, Sr.), Gavin Thomas (5-10, 305, DL, Jr.), Gabe Brooks (6-3, 240, DL, Sr.), Nick Kuzemka (6-0, 185, LB, Jr.), Jordan Besson (5-10, 180, DB, Jr.).

I stumbled upon the Quarterback transfer into Colgan. BUT, are there any others that would be considered significant? I know that there have been in VaBeach. As usual, Chris Scott (now at Bishop Sullivan) has successfully pulled in some middle school kids that would have attended somewhere else s ninth graders. Along with some top talent in the Beach transferring, Bishop Sullivan could be considered the TOP HS Football team in all of VA. (Not my opinion)

South Lakes Returns Veteran Team and Enters 2017 as a 6A North Favorite
by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA

Team: South Lakes (Reston, VA)
Classification/District – 6A/Liberty
2016 Record – 12-2 (lost to Westfield 42-12 in 6A North final)
Head Coach – Trey Taylor
Mascot – Seahawks

After thrashing Lake Braddock 40-22 in a 6A North semifinal last year, Trey Taylor’s Seahawks marched on to the gridiron at Westfield ready to silence the Bulldogs.
However, their aspirations fell short, as their successful season ended with an awkward thud, in the form of a 42-12 loss to the eventual state champion, in the 6A North final.

A repeat of the 30-point loss is unlikely. The Seahawks lost 320-lb. star lineman David Kroll (U. Delaware) to graduation, but return almost all of their skill players, as the prohibitive Liberty District favorite should also return to the 6A North region title game.

In short, South Lakes is loaded. Senior Devin Miles (5-10, 175) will return at quarterback. Miles was workmanlike last season, and for good reason. His primary focus was to hand off to arguably the state’s best tandem of running backs, Spencer Alston (5-11, 195) and Albert Mensah (5-10, 205).

The bad news for the rest of the state is that Alston, Mensah, and their 2,500 + yards and 47 combined rushing touchdowns from 2016 will be back for their senior season, and lined up behind Miles.

“We return almost all of the group on offense, with many of them being three year starters,” said Coach Trey Taylor. “We will be lighter up front, but we will have a group that has played in all types of games and situations. That experience will be our strength.”

Center Jacob McCarty (5-9, 245) and tackle Eric Walter (6-0, 260) look to be the anchors of the offensive line, which should do an efficient job opening holes for the backs. Taylor does add a new wrinkle to his offense this year with the addition of sophomore wide receiver Michael Riche (5-8, 170).

“Riche is the fastest player on the team,” said Taylor. “He will bring some more speed to our vertical passing game and perimeter game, which should take some of the stress off Mensah and Alston.”

Mensah also returns to his defensive end position, where he earned all-conference honors in 2016. He will be joined by other two-way players, such as McCarty (DT) and Noah Seneca (6-0, 185, TE/DE). Senior Eddie Mohler (5-8, 180) returns to his cornerback position, while Kojo Kumi returns to the secondary. Kumi had a key interception in the Lake Braddock playoff game which thwarted a Bruin drive and helped to seal the Seahawks’ win.

Sophomore free safety Joseph Dagbe (5-8, 155) will be one new defender thrown into the spotlight. Dagbe replaces Andrew Funaki, the Seahawks big play specialist on both sides of the ball.

“Joseph is athletic and smart, and will need every bit of that to fill Andrew’s shoes,” said Taylor.

Overall, the coach’s plan is simple. “Our goal is to go undefeated each week. That is it.” If the Seahawks can come together as a team and perform to the best of their ability, another 12 win season and deep playoff run should be in the cards.

Others to watch:
Chris Logan (6-1, 210, T/LB, Sr.), Spencer Coppage (6-1, 200, G/DT, Sr.), Tim Brown (5-10, 225, G, Jr.), Dave Hagengimana (6-1, 180, WR, Sr.), Diego White (5-9, 170, CB, Jr.), Sage Beuchert-Irvine (6-2, 195, LB, Jr.), Chris Ezidinma (6-0, 160, R, Sr.).

Will Seahawks face any challenge in the Liberty District this season? Can they get over the hump in the postseason?

This McGrath guy is a homer, it seems every team he's written about has no flaws and is going to have an incredible season. C'mon man, the article states the Seahawks will be lighter up front, so how does that make for a successful season for the 2 star RB's. If you can't open holes it doesn't matter how good your RB's are, they're not going anywhere. Also the same for their passing attack, they may have the fastest receiver in 6A North, if the QB doesn't get time to throw then it's all for naught. My question is how can they be a 6A North favorite when they were so soundly beaten in the finals last year and they got smaller up front on the O-line? Also if I remember correctly their defense wasn't that spectacular, I don't know, I could be wrong.

Don't Sweat McGraf, he is writhing from the Respective Teams Coach's perspective. That is Haddocks take or Turners take on their Team! One would expect A Coach to tout his Club. SL will do just fine in the Liberty and get Soundly Pounded in the Play-offs by a more formidable Foe. Remember that was about to be a 42-0 Beat Down last year and could have been a 72-0 drubbing had WF not pulled the majority of their Starters 3rd qtr!

This is LB's year!
They will finally handle Westfield and bring the state title back to Burke.

They return:

James, Dizon, Cobb, Metheny Hanifi - skills
Hurley, Haedt, Rudicill, Mclean Altman - o-line
Darcy - QB
New coaching staff- I am hearing is the best in the state

Summary:

With so many returning players and the new coaching staff, how can they lose.
I think most of the coaches in the region agree that LB is the team to beat this year.

Coach Doc is ready to make a statement and it will be loud and clear!!!!

VHSL ranking has LB at number 2 behind Westfield, that will change on August 25th.

With the new staff now in place, the program will be much better then in the past.

Good luck to all the other teams!

In the north this year it will be South Lakes, Centreville, and South County fighting it out with Lake Braddock and Westfield right behind them. Mark it down.

Sorry, you're wrong. The bulldogs will be good for two more years. But the freshmen are in camp this week and peeee-yewwww. I watched some of the walk throughs and it wasn't looking good. Simmons might be able to work some miracles with these guy, but that's what it's going to take. 2020 and beyond is NOT looking good for Bulldog football based on what I saw.

It will be Lake Braddock and Westfield for the championship in the north.

This year Lake Braddock wins!!

They have a lot coming back on offense and defense. Darcy, Matheny, Cobb ,James on O. Hanifi, Obrien Ahearn, McLean on D.

New coaching staff (everyone is saying its the best in the state!)


With that new staff in place, look for LB to dominate this year.

Exciting time to be a Bruin!

As an Oakton fan, I have to ask - how many of South Lakes' studs are from the Fox Mill community which used to be districted for Oakton? Would some of those kids be going to Oakton if it were say, 2008?

Sad to see a school with 2700 students, competitive in so many sports, have a mediocre football team year after year. The demographics just are not there.

Okay here is my analysis for the future of Westfield football. We are all aware of the changing demographics in the Concorde district or whatever it's called now, but I doubt that it will change more than it already has. Additionally, Westfield has got to be the most under populated school in the area. Its definetly the biggest 4 year high school in the county, perhaps even the state. It's supposed to hold well over 3000 kids but the current enrollment is around 2500. With South Lakes, Chantilly, Oakton, and Centreville, all of which are neighboring schools, experiencing overcrowding, don't be surprised to see a few of those neighborhoods get redirected into Westfield. So although the demographics won't be what they used to be, I do envision a spike in enrollment one way or another soon enough. Although until that does happen, I wouldn't be surprised to see Westfield have slightly mediciocre seasons by their standards.

A big addition to bring South Lakes to 3,000 students is already in the works. So no redistricting there. Oakton will also be renovated and expanded in the next couple of years.

https://www.restonnow.com/2015/10/07/on-the-docket-south-lakes-high-schools-expansion-plans/

The expansion will bring the schools capacity to 2500, which is what the school already has. What the expansion will do is probably get rid of or reduce the amount of trailers as the school is essentially at 2500 right now. You may be right about Oakton but I haven't heard anything about that. I know for a fact that Centreville and Chantilly are overcrowded and there isn't much that can be done about it.

Where do you get that the building at Westfield is supposed to house over 3000 kids? South County is the exact same building blueprint and was overcrowded with less than 3000 when it was a secondary school. It's pretty full now and has an enrollment of around 2100

Westfield had an addition built in 2006 that increased the size from the original structure. They had over 3200 kids in attendance at one point.

Been watching the Gameday Media Live.

Highlights so far:

Stone Bridge
Coach Thompson says this is the best team he has ever had at Stone Bridge. They fully expect to go undefeated and win the state championship at 15-0. Apparently they have recruited well - he mentioned a number of transfers. Was bursting with enthusiasm. Oh, said he couldn't think of a single thing he would change about how they played Highland Springs. Running up the middle from his own 30 on a 4th and 8 was a good coaching call.

Centreville
Coach Haddock says this is the best offseason Centreville has ever had with regard to participation and preparation. Is very excited about the season. Says this team is right up there with the 2013/2014 super-star team. Was clearing room for trophies during his talk.

Westfield
Coach Simmons really downplayed any expectations mostly crying about all the seniors they lost. Lots of new coaches. Dissed his new QB by mentioning several times how scrawny he is and has no experience. Set the bar low.

High school athletes and transferring becomes a hotter topic every year

by Andy Hilton, recruit757

recruit757 will not take a formal stance on transferring.

There are plenty of times where an athlete decides to transfer from one high school to another. Sometimes, the parents move. Sometimes, the parents drive the decision. In other cases, the student-athlete begs to move and it’s not always for good reason.

I’m not here to offer a judgment on any teenager’s situation. That’s not what we’re about.

I will throw this out there, and it originated from a professional contact of mine, Cory Bailey at Coastal Carolina. Cory is the recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach for the Chanticleers, a program that just moved into the Sun Belt and moved up to Division I FBS. Before his tenure at Coastal Carolina, Coach Bailey was the head coach at Assumption College.

Cory tweeted on May 8 about transfer students and it has gotten a lot of attention.

Random Rant..Transferring to get recruited based on the school you're at = crazy. Dominate where you are… we will find you! Show loyalty.

— Cory Bailey (@CoachCoryBailey) May 8, 2017

In six weeks, it’s gotten about 2,000 likes and over 1,000 retweets. Maybe most of the likes have come from high school coaches who have lost transferring players. I know that I liked the tweet when I first saw it.

Oddly enough, Coastal Carolina just received a verbal commitment about a week ago from a local player who’s transferring for the second time in his high school career. The commit is heading to Bishop Sullivan after playing for two years at Portsmouth Christian, and for a season at Greenbrier Christian prior to that. Coastal Carolina found him, recruited him, and got a commitment from him before he has played a down of football for his newest team.

But again, this isn’t about a specific player.

I can guarantee you this. If you’re talented, I will find you. If you’re talented, college coaches will find you. Part of my job is helping college coaches connect to you and to your high school coach. While some high school football programs are better than others and some high school coaches are more skilled at different aspects of football, there is practically always a place for a high school varsity starter to play college football.

There’s something to be said for making the commitment to stay in the same high school football program for your entire high school career. It demonstrates character and commitment. It shows a college coach that you can stick to your decisions. It also allows you to experience high school and high school sports with the friends that you grow up with.

I will state this very clearly. As much as I love high school football, it is still an after-school, extra-curricular activity. Winning a state championship will not complete your life, nor will it make you a better person. If you think that winning a title in high school is going to make you a legend, think again. Most people can’t tell you who won a high school championship two years ago, let alone five, ten or twenty years ago.

Playing college football is less like an extra-curricular activity and more like a job. High school is a time to enjoy playing football. By the time you reach college, you better be playing because you love it, or you may not play for much longer.

With all that being said, there are good reasons to transfer.

Players may sometimes want to play for a different coach, or for a person they see as a more talented coach. They may want to play against better competition. In that case, you certainly want to make sure that there’s room for you in the new program you are headed to. There’s only one ball and there are only 11 spots on the field at a time. You better be good enough to beat out the other guys who are already in the program and competing for the playing time that you think you’re going to get.

As with any big decisions in life, there are pros and there are cons. Transferring works out for a lot of kids, but it’s not without risks. Take a good long look at the potential impact of your decision before you decide to make a move. Parents should be involved as more than a rubber stamp of approval. Look at all of the implications before you leap.

The grass is always greener where?

Not on the other side.

The grass is always greener where you water it.

– Andy Hilton

Stone Bridge has never beaten LB and they wont this year either.

LB has more overall talent this year then they have had on any team in the past.
They may not have that super star this year, but the skill players are all very good and they have depth. The O line isn't as experienced, but has size and strength. they will get better every game.

The defense will be no doubt the best in the region, they return 7-8 starters from last year. Look for a lot of shut outs from this D, this year

New coaching staff, new philosophy.....I am hearing a lot of people say this staff is the best in the state.

Westfield, Stone Bridge, West Potomac, be aware, LB is coming for you.

The usernames "BigMurph" and "KMurph" is Krista Murphy, the Director of Football Operations for coach Doc, being with him at SJHS as well as WTW, and now Lake Braddock.If you been to any of the games in the past she's the bigger lady with the lesbian haircut- her job is to hand out uniform numbers and make play cards, in addition to managing the sideline during games.

These past several posts have been very humble Krista, we all know it's you lmao.

Scrimmage, Aug 18th Western Branch and St. John’s (DC) at South County. SoCo went to Chesapeake, VA & kicked the Bruins #$? last year. I expect more of the same even though they play the Southeastern District teams pretty well every year, Western Branch really struggles against the fast paced spread offense that SoCo plays.

More interesting should be St. John's vs SoCo.

It’s an exciting time to be a Shark – a Colgan Shark, that is.

The Prince William school begins varsity play in football on August 26, with an away game at Forest Park. With the upgrade in competition, games will be tougher for Colgan, but there are plenty of reasons for optimism.

First, the football team is not the first at the new school to field a varsity team. In fact, Colgan has found relative success in other sports, especially boys track which featured two 6A state champions and top-ten finishes for indoor and outdoor track. Second, many of the players were part of last year’s JV squad which finished with an impressive 8-1 record while playing a schedule loaded with 6A opponents.

Coach Steve Baudendistel knows where his team’s strengths lie. “We have a lot of talent at the offensive skill positions,” said Baudendistel. Many of the skill players lack weight, but bring an asset to the field.

Junior Justin Kapp is penciled in at quarterback. Kapp (6-1, 170) started his high school career at powerhouse DeMatha High in Maryland, before transferring to the new school, which is within a mile of his home. Kapp led the JV team last year, and brings talents as a pocket passer and runner to the Shark attack.

Behind him will be speedster Justin Bell. Bell (5-8, 160) is “a threat to score each time he touches the ball,” according to Baudendistel. Colgan also boasts a quartet of capable wideouts, with senior Kaeleb Carter likely to be a favorite target with his 6-4 frame and leaping ability from doubling as a basketball player.

Liam Smith (6-1, 235) is he senior leader of the O-line, but a lot of runs will also go behind sophomore George Neiser, who is already big and powerful at 6-3 and 295 pounds.

Baudendistel likes the versatility and athleticism of his linebacking corps which consists of Clayton Bellamy (5-11, 180, Sr.), John Cook (6-0, 180, Jr.) and Anthony Vilatoro (5-9, 175, Jr.). Huey Bodger (5-10, 215, Jr.) will lead the defensive line. Chase Lundy is the featured defensive back, a unit that is young and largely untested with a sophomore and freshman among the starters.

Baudendistel hopes that the collective mental toughness of the Sharks will go a long way. “Even though this is our first “real” season, we need to rise up to the challenge of playing a full varsity schedule and prepare each week with the confidence of a veteran football program. In a district returning only two winning teams (Freedom, Hylton), a good mental attitude could help these Sharks swim to the middle of the Cardinal District standings – no small feat for a first-year squad.

Others to watch: Darrian Brokenburr (6-3, 215, OL, Jr.), John Neiser (6-0, 200, OL, Soph.), Adam Ripper (5-10, 175, OL, Soph.), Blake Edwards (5-9, 160, WR, Jr.), Josh Mumphrey (5-10, 160, WR, Sr.), Peter Medawar (5-8, 145, WR, Jr.), Romeo Bowen (6-3, 225, DL, Jr.), Cesar Rodriguez (5-7, 215, DL, Jr.), Bazeleel Frimpong (6-0, 230, DL, Jr.), Mike Gerhart (5-10, 155, DB, Soph.), Sam Bowen (6-0, 190, DB, Fr.), Hakeem Sanusi (5-7, 140, DB, Jr.), Trevor Ridley (LB), Andrew Brown (DL), Jordan Bradford (OL), Kam McMillan (DB), Odin Brock (RB).

LB, Robinson, and Chantilly all have a higher enrollment than Westfield and jrs been like this for a while. However people will still continue to discredit Westfield's success because they apparently have "the most kids". It's not 2007 anymore people! If Westfield still had those kind of numbers (3300 I believe) then I doubt this would be a competition at all.

Anyone at the Robinson/Battlefield scrimmage last night? I was told Robinson best them up pretty good and I was shocked to hear that. That came from a Robinson parent so I'm skeptical. Battlefield is usually very good and I believe they got their old coach back that won the state title. Anyone know the truth?

Wow, what a difference between Northern VA schools and the rest of the State for 6A! With Landstown being #20 in size at 2400 students, most of the 6A South schools tend to be 1800 - 2000 students. Yet, over the last decade, there is an even split between 6A North vs South teams.

It sounds like 6A North is more wide open compared to other years, but until Westfield is knocked out, with Lake Braddock, SouthCo, Centreville, South Lakes all chasing them.

In 6A South, it'll be the same teams as favorites (except Ocean Lakes), with Smith, Colonial Forge, Thomas Dale, Grassfield, and Cox likely making deep runs in the playoffs. Manchester in Richmond is supposed to be very good in 2017 but teams without a lot of playoff experience don't do so well against the very top tier teams. But, if they win against Riverbend, L.C Bird, Monacan, and Hermitage, they'll still have to beat Thomas Dale and/or Colonial Forge just to get a chance to play Oscar Smith or the team that beats them. Sorry to say this but the competition in 6A South might be tougher in 2017.

No surprise there. Prince William County football sucks. I wish the schedules would have kept more of the Loudoun County teams playing Fairfax County.

DeMatha-Westfield scrimmage this afternoon. DeMatha was too much for Westfield as usual. Although Westfield did do better defensively than I would have thought. Held DeMatha off the scoreboard the first couple of possessions. Westfield highlights included a big hit/pass breakup by #3 (Hinton) and a nice interception of Lenhart by #12 (Steinhilber). DeMatha's speed when they got into open space proved deadly and they scored on a number of long TD runs and a pass.

Westfield offense struggled to gain any yardage. Running game was completely stifled and passing game was successful pretty much only on a short passing game. New QB #10 (Kim) showed a surprisingly strong arm and his ball had lot of velocity when needed. Timing with WRs was off a lot and when the ball was there the catches were not made. Exceptions were a a couple of nice gainers to #97 (Cockrill) and and a long (40-50? yd) TD pass to #2 (Morin). Morin showed some nice hands on a number of catches and impressed as much as on the Westfield squad.

Conclusion? Yes, Westfield lost a lot and looked a bit raw. But it was DeMatha. I have a feeling they aren't going to give up the 6A North title easily. But a veteran team - like South Lakes - might be what it takes to knock them off.

For those of you who say Westfield won't be as good just because they lost a few players, I hope you do realize that Westfield literally loses their best player every year. 2 years ago they lost Evan Grey and James Gibson and won it all. Last year they lost Scanlon and Aiello who were the VHSL Offensive and Defensive player of the year I believe, but managed to win it all yet again without them. And both teams that win it all had many injuries! Jack Clancy was out for most of the 2015 season and LaDarion Rivers was out for most of the 2016 season. Nobody seems to realize how deep Westfield really is every year. Coming in to the last few seasons everyone said that Westfields talent was "down", and as soon as a group of guys graduates everyone starts acting like they are a once in a lifetime group that can't be replaced. Yeah Westfield lost talent but so did every other team in the North. Yes I know South Lakes has a good senior class but they graduated 3 really good seniors that played 6 positions for them. And Westfield at their best last year was light years ahead of any other team in the 6A North. I'm not saying that they are gonna win it all this year but until they are defeated in the PLAYOFFS, they should remain the favorites. Watch out for a few new players you've never heard of before.

Westfield will still be very strong. Call me crazy, but replacing the kicker/punter will be the most difficult. That guy regularly made their opponents have to go 80 yds to score and basically eliminated the threat of a return. In close games, that makes a huge difference. They may have a good kicker and punter to replace him, but it's highly unlikely that they are as good this season in those areas and it will have a negative impact of their defense as well.

I have to agree. They have a good system, they get athletes onto the field that may not want to play football, they have a good off season program and once they are on the field they get the most out of them. That is the definition of good high school coaching. It is also why the LB homers need to stop talking and wait for on field results. The new coaching staff has a lot to prove because they did not really prove anything at Woodson. They appeared to win the games that they should but never showed the ability to win against the elite teams in the northern region.

STFU about Braddock and their coaching staff.

They are NOT the best in the state, NOT the best in the region, NOT the best in

the District.

I will wager $100 that Stone Bridge (NOT the best coaching staff in the state)

beats them by double digits in Week Three.

They will also probably lose to Westfield to open the season. Better hope they

don't drop the game against West Potomac or Coach Doc and Company will open 0 - 3.

While I really have come to hate the sycophants and morons on this site that just spew Westfield this and Westfield that, I have certainly come to respect their coaching staff for their ability to prepare for the playoffs and make a run in states. My question is this: Let's be honest - every team tries as hard as they can to win every regular season game. Don't give me any BS that they don't. Well, how can we explain the three or four complete shitting of themselves that happened to last year's 6A State Champions. Only an unbelievable finish prevented them from losing to a truly average Robinson team, they defeated a below average and undisciplined group from TC by 7, actually lost to a battered and beaten and blow chunks Briar Woods team, and were boat raced by Stone Bridge. Can anyone explain the clunkers? And this seems to happen every year? What gives? And try to give an honest assessment and not just tell me that they don't prepare for regular season games and only carer about the playoffs. That is just not true.

Although this shouldn't be an excuse, Westfield had many injuries last season, far more than they normally do. They were up by 21 points versus TC and although they only won by 7 the victor was never in doubt. As for the other 3 games, Westfield had identity issues. They tried to run the ball like they had done in previous years but they just didn't have the talent or the experience that their previous running backs (Thrasher Walker & Grey) had. Once they realized that their strength was their passing game, I believed that this realization occurred following the Robinson game. The following week they destroyed Centreville, who were ranked number one in the state coming into the game 35-0. At this point it became clear that the teams strength on offense was the passing game as Rehman Johnson had great chemistry with Ivory Frimpong and Sean Eckert, all three of these guys are playing college ball I believe. They had O-Line issues throughout the season as well. Joey Free and Kevin Petrillo, both player who are VHSL All State returned late in the regular season to solidify their defense. Another reason for the early season struggles was the number of sophomores who lacked not talent but experience. I believe 4-5 got significant play time on defense. Despite losing a lineman and a star defender (Rivers) once the team became healthy and got on the same page they were essentially unstoppable. The Madison game was closest challenge they had in the second half of the season and that was a 3 score game as well and at one point it loooked as if they would run away from OS in the state championship. Yeah Westfield doesn't try to lose on purpose in the regular season but in the earlier parts of the season they experiment quite a bit compared to other teams in order to discover their strengths and weaknesses.

It is the dixie cup parties that sustain Westfield. Admin and parents in on it. Let the kids be drunks and cheaters and look like a good program is being run even though it is not. Just like the old Miami U days of old over there - lots of stuff swept under the carpets, teaching them to be wanna be gangstas. And before you a-holes go off, no I am not from Chantilly, SLakes, Centreville, Oakton, Braddock, SOCO, whatever. Just someone in the know about what really goes on over at Westfield. Should be ashamed of what they are doing there behind the scenes.

Not much point in answering your question because you won't accept any answer anyway.

But I'll give observations:

1) Injuries. They had a very rough patch of games in that stretch when they had 5-6 key contributors not playing. Not the same ones each game but impactful nonetheless.
2) Four of their top five defensive lineman were first year starters. It took a few games for them to develop. Their level of play at the end of the year was tremendously improved over the earlier part of the season.
3) Hubris. It's human nature but after so much success some players think it's going to just happen. More than one player pointed to bad practice weeks leading to a bad game.
4) Defending state champions. Of course every team is trying to win but Westfield definitely gets every teams best game. They have a target on their back as they should. Not only bragging rights of knocking off the defending state champion but also revenge for previous years losses. Actually same with Centreville - always a lot of bragging when someone takes Centreville down.
5) Offensive play calling. Westfield has been very conservative and has underutilized their talent early in the season. The last two years they really opened things up in the playoffs and it worked.
6) Playing both ways. Throughout the season Westfield rarely plays their best athletes both ways. Until they reach towards the end of the year. The last two years by the time they reached the 2nd/3rd round of the playoffs they were playing their top athletes both ways on a regular basis (Jewell, Petrillo, Cockrill e.g.). Something they did not do often if at all in Simmons first four seasons.

Be careful bad mouthing LB staff, you will pay when we play you.
You will see what the best staff in state looks like.

BTW....
Stone Bridge has never beat LB and they wont this year!!

Westfield never plays well early, so LB wins easily.

The last time West Potomac beat LB, most of the players on this team were in
1st or 2nd grade. Not going to happen this year either!

Coach Doc 3-0 to start the season!!!!!!!

Westfield prepares week in and week out for every team as good if not better than practically every team. The sycophants and Morons you speak of are not Westfield faithful after all this is a public forum. The True fans that sit in the stands every week and have been followers of the program for many years and multiple children know right away whom speaks fact about Westfield and who moronically incites this public forum! As for the Team by team analysis it can be broken down as Follows:

Stonebridge, early on, Westfield missed on 2-3 deep balls that were certain Touchdowns Eckert dropped 2 behind the defense and Frimpong 1. Had Westfield capitalized on those Morin might have had 6 interceptions that game instead of 3. This allowed Stonebridge to continue with their running of the ball ultimately wearing down the Westfield defense and knocking out several key defensive players for Multiple weeks. On this day Stonebridge was the better team and Won a decisive Victory.

Briarwoods one factor one player decided the outcome. Ben maffe when Briar Woods got in the Red Zone he was given the ball usually out of the Wildcat and the best player on the field that night scored 5 times and Westfield had NO answer. One of the singularly greatest efforts by 1 player in a long time. Had Westfield converted on the 2pt conversion for the Win they would have squeaked out an undeserved victory and Maffe still would have been the Game MAP.

TC Williams, Westfield has always struggled against their athleticism look at the History of the games few decisive blow-outs based on the final score. Most teams play within a system that allows a team to scheme against and game plan for. TC Williams lack of Discipline coupled with their athleticism will continue to be a problem. If they ever buy into a Coach/System the Glory days are almost a certainty.

Robinson, a disciplined Run heavy physical team that went up against a Westfield defense that was still dealing with the injuries sustained during the Stonebridge game Robinson wasn't the result of being unprepared, it was the result of being depleted defensively, worn down and having an offense that could not control the clock with a running game and still had not put the passing game together completely. Westfield did however manage to hang in there and as LUCK would have it, score one late, recover an unbelievable onside kick and let the best kicker in the State do What he does, note Delaney was only 60% successful on his FG attempts so from 42 yards nothing was given.

The Robinson game was for many reasons the turning point the Players started to get healthy, the Coaching staff started to believe and other than Madison in the State-semifinal Westfield did not face another physical opponent the last 9 weeks of their 2nd Championship Run.

LB will definitely beat Westfield in next weeks opener.

There QB is the real deal an will torch the Westfield defense, just like they did with St Johns in the scrimmage.

This year LB has so many athletes on the field, I cant see Westfield being able to keep up with them. Westfield is really slow on defense this year

This could actually be a blow out for LB.

Stay tuned, cant wait for next week!!

All you Westfield fans, this is a new season, no one cares what happened last year.

LB is the team to beat this year, look what they did to St Johns College High School, in a short scrimmage. They lit them up thru the air, look for a lot of that next week in the opener and all season long.

Coach Doc has got this machine rolling, so you better so get on board or get run over.

One team one dream!!!

LB out here vs a Freshman squad getting all excited. They have scored on just about every drive and actually running the ball some, and defense has kept MANASSAS PARK to roughly about 50 total yards of offense.

Great confidence booster as they prepare for The reigning state Champs in the opener!

Also, as everyone has been saying this is the best staff in the state, Westfield will get to see for themselves next Friday night.

Game of the week at Westfield on Friday.

LB has too many weapons for Westfield this year, here are a few of them:

Darcy Methany, Dizon, James, Cobb, Ahearn
Best coaching staff in the state has this team running like a fine tuned machine


All of this adds up to a big victory for LB
Prediction is LB 35 Westfield 7

I said this last year and I'll say it again... Hayfield is the dark horse this year. I think they will challenge Westfield for the crown. They have the best overall player in the region and their QB this year is better than the one they had last year. The QB is only a Sophomore and he's getting D1 looks already!

Great time to be a Hawk!

LB goes down BIG this Friday Bulldawgs by 38+

Lets Not be Absurd, While I Agree LB goes Down Friday, Westfield offense 2017 is not Westfield Offense late Season 2016. They are not capable of Scoring 38+ points with out a few Defensive TD's or Special teams help. With that being said expect a tight game by the Score-board 20-13/21-17 however The Westfield Defense will dominate this match-up and it wont be nearly as close as the Final score indicates.

Stone-Bridge would gladly trade that #7 slot early on for a Final 5A #1 at the end of the season. wasn't Centreville #1 in State in 6A last Year before laying a goose Egg week #8 or #9. South Lakes can Hang their Ranking in their Gym after the season, with their easy schedule they should have no problem being the Paper Tiger until week 12-13.

2. Wise
3. St. John's
4. Damascus
5. Gonzaga
6. Friendship Collegiate
7. Stone Bridge
8. South Lakes
9. Quince Orchard
10. H.D. Woodson
11. Centerville
12. Episcopal
13. Spalding
14. Old Mill
15. West Potomac
16. Eleanor Roosevelt
17. Oxon Hill
18. Maret
19. Madison
20. Sherwood

So to the Stone Bridge comment, #1 5A in Virginia is not going to bounce them much higher in the Post's ranking vs. the others on this list.

Westfield will probably win the region again this year. Good staff, good players and good numbers make a difference.

West Po, South Lakes, CV and SoCo will be tough. Watch out for TC and MT V as they may surprise a few teams.

Hayfield is way down this year and wont be tested until week 4/5 against South County. QB position and O line could be their biggest weakness. Cobbs is the best receiver in the region but you need to have someone who can get him the ball.

LB may struggle this season, welcome to the big time new coach.

Good comments. Same as always I see Westfield and Centreville as the top two teams. I'd give a slight edge to Centreville. I think you picked the best of the rest. Maybe a team from PW county will break the top 10 - Patriot or Hylton?

Let the performance on the field speak for his abilities. From what I have seen your "Doc" won the games that he was supposed to win but never pulled off what would be considered big upsets. In 2014 Jackson had Greg Stroman which has proven to be hard to handle as a collegiate athlete. In high school a single D1 athlete can take a team fairly far.

Men will never understand all the work it takes! Nails Done! Hair Done! outfit layed out for prowling the sidelines of Northern Region Football! lets get this party started!

Robinson vs. Hylton, the Rams will play tough and try to keep it close with ball control offense however Ricky Slade is to much Hylton 38 Rams 17

South Lakes vs. Woodson great game to work out any remaining kinks for the Hawks, this isn't Basketball we are playing here boys Seahawk ground game could pile up 500 yards before this one is over. look for Woodson to pick up a few late scores as the Hawks 2-way starters tire late. seahawks 42 woodson 21

South County vs. Langley anyone see the catholics vs. convicts 30 for 30? if Panoni can keep the mob from self destructing, they could score 60+ South County by a Truck load.

Madison vs. Marshall, look for a spirited, emotional Madison team to release a lot of tension on an over matched Statesman team. Madison 35 Marshall 10

Westfield vs. lake Braddock a lot of hype surrounding a new staff and much controversy at LB can the Bruins live up to the hype and catch Westfield before they get the ball rolling? Westfield defense keeps it close and welcomes the Good Doctor to the Big Leagues. Westfield 24 LB 21

Chantilly vs. Hayfield Can Hendo get the ball to his play makers? look for a young Chantilly Team to make too many mistakes against a high flying hawks team that will be running and gunning all night Hayfield 45 Chantilly 13

Centreville vs. Stonewall, look for Coach Haddock to send a message to the region early as the revamped Wildcats will demonstrate their dominant run and newfound pass game against a Stonewall team that probably should be playing JV ball Centreville 51 - Stonewall 10

Oakton vs. Battlefield Battlefield returns their King maker and all of Gainesville hopes their winning ways, Battlefield returns to form and gets the W against and eager oakton team that simply has too many Holes to fill. Battlefield 31 oakton 23.

Sorry Boys, you will have to wait a week to see the Bulldogs from Stonebridge annihilate loudon Valley expect the margin of victory in that one to be 40 plus depending on how many times Mickey elects to go for it on 4th and 8 from his own 35.

Anyone who comes to this thread knows you have a hard-on for the Bulldogs. Your constant posts, using "real" WF fans user names, to boast about a program you have so much hate for are childish.

I was at the game and Edison is weak, MV looked pretty good, but Edison defense is horrible.

MV had three TDs called back, it could have been 91 to 13

Westfield should have had at least 10-14 more, and the one LB TD was the result of a fantastic catch. The margin should have been more like 35 points. LB will beat the teams they should this season, but WP is not one of the teams on that list. WP should crush LB next week unless LB finds a running game or WP has no secondary.

I think you've missed the point, it would appear every high and mighty post is from the same poster. He/she waits till someone posts anything positive about WF football then replies with some absurd statement using the name of the previous WF fan post. Whomever this individual is obviously the one who's got issues.

I'm also not too sure what disturbing oversights you're referring to. They suspended a bunch of kids a few years ago for disciplinary issues which followed county guidelines. I'm pretty sure you can dig deeper to find other issues that were handled the same way just didn't receive the publicity that one event did since it was reported in the Post.

Yes, teams sometimes do get lucky and win games that they shouldn't, I agree. However it's pretty hard to state that luck has made them one of the most successful Virginia high school football programs over the last 17 years. I think that would probably be from great coaching and keeping a consistent model on how a clean program is run. Don't give me that cheating, overlooking, swept under the rug, turn the head, etc. bs either, it's simply unfounded.

By the way, I'm pretty certain if you looked into any local high school program you'd find plenty of issues that would not be acceptable. How many of those get swept under the rug? I'm sure more than you or I would ever know. These are 14-18 year old kids. Teenagers make get into trouble, push boundaries, and make mistakes, it's called adolescence.

I don't understand what you are talking about the "same poster" as I do not follow this thread so consistently. Nevertheless, when I do it seems that WF posters (and you included above) take a real "my shit don't stink" attitude about Westfield football. Westfield fans and posters simply have an air of superiority about themselves that is unseemly. Perhaps time for you all to get a life - that is why you are all talking in an echo chamber here - because people are tired of your circle jerk.

No. Your just a jerk. Talking about and discussing one's favorite team is not "acting all high and mighty." You're are the same troll who's been bashing Westfield and their fans on FFXU for 3 years now - you started in 2015. Same verbiage. Same wording. We get it. You hate Westfield. Don't think it makes you special.

Not many. Just you and maybe one other troll. Always vague and unspecified rumors. It's an anonymous board - why don't you ever actually name names and go into detail. You aren't even imaginative enough to make something up. It's always just innuendo.

There are plenty of posters from other teams that are on these threads over the years. Usually when their teams are doing well - Centreville, South County, Lake Braddock, South Lakes, Madison, Robinson, Fairfax, Falls Church, Hayfield, Oakton, Chantilly. And they have a mix of obnoxious and observant posters as well. Should we assume ALL Lake Braddock fans are like the person that has been pumping that program this year? No, we take it for what it is worth. Pretty amusing actually.

Welp... Be better if you don't want the score ran up. It's pretty hard not to run up the score when your 3rd string back takes a run up the middle for a 40yrd td. Maybe they should just punt on first down to keep the score fair to fair.

Edison is gonna be miserable Friday night. Isn't this matchup called "the bird bowl"? Years ago the teams were pretty much evenly matched. Not including when S.County opened and took football players.

But how did those scores occur, I was there so here goes

JV offense 30? yard drive with no passes.

JV offense 15? drive with no passes. FYI it was a 15 yard drive because Edison let the ball roll around on the ensuing kick off and MV recovered it.

Edison fumbles on their 5? and MV JV player recovers for the TD.

Those 3 series were for a total of about 50 yards.

It's not called running up the score when Edison's VARSITY GIVES MV JV great field position and can't stop the MV JV from scoring - it's called being horrible.

I bet Hayfield hangs 100 on them.

Westfield shot themselves in the foot with far, far too many penalties-somewhere between 150-200 yards; the QB was a SO making his first varsity start and throwing to 3 receivers (JR, JR, SO) who also made their first varsity starts; they start more than 50% underclassmen; and the line has only two returning starters. Sure, they may struggle against SC tomorrow but they have so much upside that they will be fine.

SOCO is definitely a step up from LB, but WF isn't Langley either. Been watching WF football for 12 years now, live close by, had kids in the program years ago, still like to stop by on Friday nights. This is what I remember from the game last week.

It was the first game for both teams, both formidable opponents, both looked pretty much what you would expect from two good teams squaring off in the first game of the season. Let's also remember this is a week earlier than what normally is the start of the regular season for FFX County programs.

Offensively the penalties definitely didn't help WF, far too many holding calls which brought back a few big plays. Saw a clip where Simmons said he doesn't remember a game in his coaching career where there were that many penalties. Also, don't forget, the QB was making his first varsity start as a sophomore, something that's a rarity for the program. He threw 2 INT's in the first quarter, most probably from jitters. But he settled down and got tremendously better as the game went on. He's got some really good skill players around him and the usual big guys up front so they should be okay.

Defensively I like what I saw, Cockrill is a beast as a defensive end. They have plenty of kids on the offensive side in skill positions, he should spend most of his time on D. The line got good pressure all night, 3-4 sacks if I remember correctly. LB's & DB's played pretty well to, not many big plays given up, maybe 2 catches. One reception might have been more luck than skill. They certainly have some kids that can hit, they play pretty fast as well.

The previous poster mentioned the upside for potential, there are definitely more underclassmen playing than I've ever seen before. It also appears to be a few less numbers in the program but I'm sure that's the case most everywhere in FFX County.

Overall it's a typical WF team, stars from last season are gone, they just plug the next kid in and don't seem to miss much of a beat. Look, they may not win the state championship but this is definitely going to be a very good team, this year and next!

I wonder if Briar would be able to knock off Westfield again if they played this year?

McSorley must be embarrassed about what has happened to his ol' high school,

Oh, and as bad as Briar is this year, they could still easily handle Wakefield and Washington-Lee.

LB 0-2, for the first time in 10 years. What's up Doc?

For all the Doc lovers you said give him a chance and we will see what he can do with all the talent they have at LB.

Well, so far I am not impressed and with Stone Bridge coming this week, looks like 0-3 is very likely. Now I will give you that Westfield, West Potomac are very good teams, but Docs track record has been he wins the games against bad teams, but hasn't beat any good teams. It was also referenced that with all the talent at LB he will finally start beating the good teams.

So I will start it now Dump DOC!!!!!

What is wrong with CVHS, with Haddock comparing this team to the one from a few years ago that won states, I was expecting a lot more. To struggle at Stonewall 7-0 at halftime to losing to Champe (5A school was 4A last year) something is wrong. Either coaching or scheme or bit of both and them, puffing out their chest in false bravado is not cutting it. Freedom put up 54 pts on Stonewall last night. Wildcats, more like kittens.

You are the fool. Coach P didn't leave due to pending "sinking ship," anyone with any knowledge knows this. As far as "The Best Coaches" in the state, Wins & Losses typically dictate that coveted title. However It is rumored the Bruins Halftime snacks were a PLENTY, heard Kristy Murphy "Director of Football Operations" heads this task in addition to keeping track of losses. Kudos on the peeled orange slices, mini Doritto bags, classic coke and to offer mini cheeseburger sliders from Elevation Burger! Well Done Doc & staff....
WELL DONE!!!
Don't need to talk about Making LB Great again. Let's just follow the "Best Coaching Staff in the State's" lead, the half-time snacks and participation ribbons are being resurrected in Burke.
Thanks Doc

Are you kidding me????? No clue ...huh?
Braddock has more talent then any team in the conference
The have at least 5 starters returning on offense and defense, including a very good QB. Yes, you can blame Doc for this, he is the head coach. It is his responsibility to get the players ready to play, he hasn't done that yet.

This team should be easily be a 9-1 8-2 team and a deep run in the playoff.

Was at the Westfield-Lake Braddock game and I think Lake Braddock had every bit as much if not MORE talent on the field than Westfield. They just got out-coached. Plain and simple.

It's coaching. People never give any credit to big schools for winning. But 3 largest schools in Fairfax are 0-2, 1-1 and 0-2. It's not just a numbers game. Winning isn't easy.

Where are all of the Doc supporters that said give him a chance?

He has been given a chance and they are 0-2.
I would say at best, they can finish 6-4. Losses to Stone Bridge, South County are a given, Robinson, a rival, anything can happen. They must not have any hiccups with the remaining teams. So 5-5 is a possibility as well. This with a team that should be contenting for a state title every year. You have to beat the SoCos the Westfields, and the better teams and this staff has no track record of doing so.

Doc and his staff are nothing more then social media gurus, tell players, parents and administration what they want to hear, In other words, cheerleaders. They have not demonstrated that they are capable of leading a big time program.

The Lake Braddock community and alumni have been very disappointed in this staff that calls itself the "best in the state"

Hayfield had a penalty on just about every offensive play in the first quarter. Turned in on in the 2nd and only scored once in the 2nd half. Could've scored a lot more than 55 if it wasn't for penalties and resting starters. Did not run up the score on Edison like Mt. Vernon did

Look for CVHS to get decimated by SOCO next week. I can see them easily losing 5-6 games this year, if Haddock ever thought he could compare this squad to the ones that made the state title runs he needs to have his head checked. SOCO, S.Lakes, W.PO, WHS & Madison that could be 6 losses. Maybe time for him and his wing-t to retire also his staff not nearly as good as some of the others. D.C. Is a loud mouth who likes to cuss at teenage boys because it makes him feel better about himself and his shortcomings. I think it's time for a new voice to lead CVHS, they have too much talent to squander like they have been ever since 2013-2014 teams.

WHS coaching staff has proven past 2 weeks why they are the best in VA(in case some weren't convinced or had forgotten already by the back to back state championships titles) LB & SOCO has better overall talent on their roster, offense and defense, any other coaching staff would've lost these games but WHS coaches to their credit pulled it out by winning at all facets of the game, offense, defense & SPECIAL TEAMS!
If Simmons had the talent at CVHS or SOCO or LB has this year they'd go undefeated and get the 3-peat.

I agree Westfield is the best staff in the state....I have no idea why Lake Braddock thinks that staff is so good. With all that talent...and haven't done anything with it. Westfield, SoCo, Hayfield, South Lakes and Madison are the top 5 with Westfield being a notch above.

I saw the L Braddock West Potomac game last night, Braddock's QB is pretty good, he moved them up and down the field. They have a couple of really good receivers number 4 and 21, both made some nice catches and were running open all night long.

Braddock almost won the game at the end, I cant believe they haven't won a game this year, very talented team.

L Braddock has some huge coaches at least 3 or 4 are 350lbs or better, they look so unhealthy. Is the head coach the little short guys that runs around screaming the whole time? He is funny having to look up at the players

Not sure what that is based on. Credit Fairfax for holding Madison scoreless in the second half any making the final score respectible. Fairfax has improved defensively, but the offense needs help. The o line couldn't block anyone. One of their tds in the second half was aided by three consecutive fifteen yard penalties on Madison's second string defense. Still,it was a better effort against Madison than last year's effort.

The next two weeks won't tell us much about Fairfax. They play Lee next week, which should be a win , and Hayfield, which should be a loss. The game on September 22 against Annandale should tell us a lot about how the program is progressing.

1. Centerville - Too much pride and history to look this bad
2. Chantilly - They are just a bad football team that can't seem to do anything right.
3. Robinson - Even when they win, they look ugly. Upside is this school really doesn't care.
4. Oakton - Hard to understand how/why the Cougars have fallen off so fast
5. And of course, Lake Braddock - Let's just be honest, this staff is not good, and out of their league. If they can't get to at least 7 wins and win a playoff game or two, this will be a one and done.

You must be one of the Parents of all the Lake Braddock kids that Ran like Rats Friday Night When We Busted up their little Social Gathering. Quite a few of them should be easy to identify Monday morning in scho by all the scratch marks all over them they recieved when they took off running through the Woods, it happens every Friday and Saturday night all over the County.

It's a real Shame Panoni doesn't have six head Coach's on the sideline. If he did One of them might have acted like they actually had been in a Big Game before and Made sure their Special Teams had 11 guys on the Field for the extra point in O.T. instead of carrying on like a bunch of ameuters acting like they just Won the Ball Game..We will never win the Games that count until he gets his Head out of his a$$!

Lets face it, the problems at LB isn't Doc's fault.

1. He wasn't named to the position until May
2. All of the talent graduated last year (why do you think Poythress didn't mind leaving)
3. Very difficult schedule, toughest in the state
4. All of the distractions going on in the media about the administration
5. Very little support from the community, they favor the old coach

How many coaches would be successful with all of that?

Doc and his staff will rebuild this program, it will just take time, its not going to happen over night. All of you old time LB supporters need to stop bad mouthing the staff and have some patients.

It's "patience" patients is what Doc and his staff look like what they soon will be at INOVA with their heart issues for being so fat. Quit your belly aching, LB has a ton of talent. Should've beat WHS and WPO. Doc sucks!

#3 - Difficult schedule, sure-but only because they play 4 very good teams. Toughest in the state? Not a chance-not even the toughest in NOVA. Four good teams (WF, WP, SB, SC), one rivalry game (Robo, which they should win) and four patsies (WS, FFX, Yorktown, WTW, Oak). Looking a lot like 6-4, maybe even 5-5.

Lake Braddock will be fine, even if they end up 0-3. Westfield is Westfield and West Po is much better than expected. The Bruins lost a lot on their ground game obviously but they will shred most defenses with their passing attack.

This LB staff doesn't know how to win against the good teams.They have no track record, so until the staff finds a way to win against good teams, they will always be an average team with exceptional talent. A 5-5 or 6-4 record is not acceptable at a school like LB when they have all of the talent right there.

A good coaching staff finds a way to win against good teams. No way they should ever go 0-2, 0-3 with the talent they have. Even Westfield was surprised at the talent on this LB team

This team had the talent to win 8-9 games and make a deep run into the playoffs, sorry to say, the coaching staff is holding them back.

Annandale (2-0) at James Robinson (1-1)
- Falls Church (1-1) at Mount Vernon (2-0)
- T.C. Williams (2-0) at Tuscarora (1-1)

If Annandale can hang with Robinson, Mount Vernon puts a beat-down on FC and TCW can be competitive with Tusky that would be something.

Tusky and Robo will dominate and the games will be over by halftime.
Their line play on both sides of the ball is far superior to their opponents.
FC vs MTV will be interesting, but it's hard for me to believe that a team that got killed by SL will be able to beat anyone above average. I'm just not sure MTV is above average yet.

Why don't you fine folks shut up about Lake Braddock and move on to verbally abusing some other poor souls. You are all so powerful with your fat ass sitting behind your computers mouthing off. You'd run off like little girls if you were confronted face to face.
Are you too stupid to realize it's some troll egging you on. The LB coaching staff has kept their mouths shut and some idiot looking for confrontation is having a good time typing and drinking their Shlitz.
Move on and enjoy the football season.

Here are the facts:
LB sucks
Record will be 0-3 after they get drubbed 20 points or more by Stone Bridge
The program is based on cheats and karma has now caught up with them.
LB allows "athletes" in all sports who live outside the school boundary to attend LB

You should start your counseling on how to be a loser now.

As a parent of a kid who was "recruited" buy other schools in Fairfax County, I can tell you you are way over blowing the situation at LB.

Even when the school wants a kid to come play, they still have to follow FCPS pupil placement rules and get approval from the county. You can't just show up at another school and enroll.

If it is discovered a student is using a false address to attend another school, the county will make the school forfeit all of the games in which that student participated. Coaches are so watchful of the transfer issue, not many are willing to take that chance. They want the kids legally in their school.

Pupil placement transfers are also subject to space availability at the school they are trying to move into. So when a kid outside the boundaries wants to move into a school, the county looks at the capacity of the gaining school. LB is usually between 97 and 100% capacity. If they are moving from a school closer to 90%, they are probably not going to get approved.

So you left with the kids whose parents are willing (and financially capable) of picking up and moving across the county for their kid to play HS sports. That's a pretty small number.

The bulk of how one school (LB), gets so many good athletes is when their parents are moving into the district, they search out the schools that will be best for their kid. If they are football players, that most often will be LB or SoCo. (Westfield may be too far out for some parents, although I will concede the greatness of their coaching staff). Poythress was very good about ensuring incoming kids got to LB. He made them feel wanted. Other schools don't want kids from the outside, as they feel its not fair to kids who have been in their program for several years. So LB ends up with kids who care more about football and are more dedicated. It's a simple as that.

For the record, my son did not end up going to LB. We had to move, which was okay, as we went from renting to buying a house. My son had a really good HS experience and we were very lucky. Coach P was really nice to us,and always friendly to my son after their games. So no hard feelings.

Last I heard, the Class 6 directors were still debating the fate of Regions C and D here in the North. I heard they intended to combine both regions into a massive sixteen-team single-elimination tournament for the region playoff. For comparison, nearly all other regions around the state have standard eight-team playoffs for each region. Have there been any official updates? If not, I will be posting results from now on as a 16-team playoff.

VHSL has really dropped the ball on this one.

Predictions...

- Annandale (2-0) at James Robinson (1-1)
First time these two have met since 2004. Robinson should win this one going away.

- Capital Christian (0-1) at Thomas Jefferson (0-1)
Know NOTHING about Capital Christian. But DO know TJ has lost 34 games in a row.

- Fairfax (1-1) at Robert E. Lee (0-2)
Fairfax should have enough to send Lee to 0-3.

- Falls Church (1-1) at Mount Vernon (2-0)
Predict a Mount Vernon upset here. Or would it really be an upset?

- Herndon (1-0) at Chantilly (0-2)
Coach Curry gets his first win at Chantilly.

- James Madison (2-0) at West Potomac (2-0)
Madison is very physical team. Defense will slow WP down.

- J.E.B. Stuart (0-1) at Park View (0-2)
Both teams looking for what may be their only win of the season.

- Langley (0-2) at W.T. Woodson (0-2)
Woodson because they are at home?

- South County (1-1) at Centreville (1-1)
Expecting a close game. Centreville has room for improvement. Don't forget they took down heavily favored Lake Braddock & Lamont Atkins early in the season last year.

- South Lakes (2-0) at Oakton (0-2)
A blowout. Oakton just ain't what they used to be.

- Stone Bridge (1-0) at Lake Braddock (0-2)
Hard to believe LB starts 0-3.

- T.C. Williams (2-0) at Tuscarora (1-1)
TCW has been known to surprise teams on occasion. Perhaps they give the Huskies a game?

- Washington-Lee (0-1) at West Springfield (2-0)
W-L has never beaten WS (0-5)

- Yorktown (2-0) at Wakefield (1-0)
Coin flip says Yorktown.

Seems like more evenly matched games this week.

- Annandale (2-0) at James Robinson (1-1)
Hard to go with Annandale after a disappointing season last year.

- Capitol Christian (0-1) at Thomas Jefferson (0-1)
Capitol Christian might show up with 50 players and a full cheerleading squad, they might show up with 12 players, half of whom are foreign basketball recruits who have never played football before, they might realize they've scheduled three games for the same day and not show up at all. TJ"s lost so many games in a row that I can't pick them but it's not out of the question for them to win this.

- Fairfax (1-1) at Robert E. Lee (0-2)
Lee was competitive against West Springfield but Fairfax actually posts their stats in the Post website so I'll go with them.

- Falls Church (1-1) at Mount Vernon (2-0)
MV will score too much to lose to Falls Church.

- Herndon (1-0) at Chantilly (0-2)
Coin toss, I'll pick the team that's actually a won a game.

- James Madison (2-0) at West Potomac (2-0)
Playoff rematch, West Pot had the quality win last week so they get the nod here. We'll learn a lot about both teams.

- J.E.B. Stuart (0-1) at Park View (0-2)
Park View should be playing TJ.

- Langley (0-2) at W.T. Woodson (0-2)
Langley showed signs of life last week.

- South County (1-1) at Centreville (1-1)
Probably just anti-LoCo bias speaking, but if Centreville couldn't stop one kid from John Champe how are they going to stop South County?

- South Lakes (2-0) at Oakton (0-2)
I guess South Lakes got all of Oakton's football talent in the redistricting.

- Stone Bridge (1-0) at Lake Braddock (0-2)
LB had plenty of chances against West Potomac last week, but they don't really have any of the standout players they've had in recent years.

- T.C. Williams (2-0) at Tuscarora (1-1)
Has TC ever played a team from Loudoun County before? They've played two potential 0-10 teams the first two weeks. Tuscarora not the same team they were a few years ago, could go either way.

- Washington-Lee (0-1) at West Springfield (2-0)
Once W-L's enrollment hits 5,000 they'll have a decent football team. West Springfield bouncing back after being perhaps the most disappointing team in the area last year.

- Yorktown (2-0) at Wakefield (1-0)
Yorktown is actually only 1-0, but they're 21-0 in their last 21 games against Wakefield, so there's only one way to pick.

TJ lost 34-3 to a 2A school last week. I wonder if they'll be the first Nova school to drop varsity football.

They are a VHSL member, but ineligible for playoff consideration in football.

And asking a school like TJ-A to compete in 5a in football is asking a lot. Besides, I'm not sure the ego's of the kids on one of the big time 5a schools could handle it if a nerdy little brainy kid from TJ got in a pancake block!

Correct. TJ's only official game was against George Mason.

Your bad info is that Millbrook played Jefferson, West Virginia NOT TJ-Alexandria.

Chantilly has 0 first downs and lost yardage on EVERY possession except for 1. Against Herndon. Herndon had probably 75% of their snaps on the Chantilly side of the field but never came close to scoring. I think they had 2 first downs.

Mark it down here: Chantilly goes 0-10 if they don't somehow get a miracle win here.

Centreville and South County squared off in what was a pretty good game, with Centreville building a 10 point lead in the second quarter, falling behind in the third quarter before retaking the lead, then holding off South County to win 31-27.

Centreville received the ball first on their own 20 yard line. On the very first play, the QB handed the ball to a RB, who handed it off to the WR in what looked like a reverse. But then the WR flipped the ball back to the QB who had a wide open player down the middle of the field-but the pass was off and the receiver could not haul in the pass for what would have been a sure TD. CV then punted three plays later and SC took over on the CV 48 yard line. Unable to move the ball, SC punted and pinned CV on their own 1 yard line. SC's Dunn intercepted QB Egbers several plays later and SC had the ball back on their own 43 yard line, but a Tull fumble was recovered by CV on the SC 34 yard line. CV completed this drive with a 24 yard run by Kanu and went ahead 7-0 (Greer XP) with 2:30 to play in the first quarter. SC then put together a quick 80 yard drive to tie the score at 7-7 (Arquette XP) on a 3 yard run by Spalding at the 11:32 mark of the second quarter. CV immediately answered with an 80 yard drive of their own, capped by a 1 yard Kanu TD run at the 5:52 mark to put CV ahead 14-7. After a SC punt, CV drove from their own 19 yard line to face a 4th and goal at the SC 2 yard line, where they elected to go for a 17 yard FG, which Greer hit, to go into the half leading 17-7.

SC started the second half on their 35 yard line and had to punt. CV then returned the favor, giving SC the ball on their own 37 yard line. On the first play of this possession SC's Tull went 63 yards on a QB keeper and pulled SC to within 17-13 (Arquette's XP missed). CV again went three and out, giving SC the ball back on the SC 44 yard line. SC went on to score again, this time on a 4th and 1 from the CV 2 yard line when Spalding ran it in the 2 yards and put SC ahead, 21-17 (Tillard 2XP) with 1:57 to play in the 3rd quarter. CV would immediately answer, using a one play, 77 yard run by Wright to jump back in front, 24-21 (Greer XP) with 1:35 left in the third quarter. SC's next possession was a three and out, giving CV the ball on their own 43 yard line. A few plays later CV's Kanu went 44 yards up the middle and CV extended their lead to 31-21 (Greer XP) with 7:45 remaining in the game. SC again went three and out, as did CV. With 3:36 left and trailing by 10 points, SC started on their own 37 yard line and marched 63 yards, capping the drive with a Tull 1 yard run to pull within 31-27 (XP missed on a bad snap) with 2:23 to play. SC tried an onside kick on the ensuing kickoff and a CV player touched the ball and it was recovered by SC at the SC 48 yard line with just over two minutes to play. SC got a Tull run to the CV 46, then a penalty on CV pushed the ball to the CV 41. CV's defense then broke through on the next play and sacked Tull at the SC 49 yard line, but two plays later CV's Maxwell intercepted Tull and CV was able to run out the clock to win 31-27

The Washington Post has an article today about the Madison/West Potomac game. You can read it online here:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/spor...4b862b2b3f3_story.html?utm_term=.6a9510c5f3d5

"Madison eventually finds its footing in 38-16 win over West Potomac"

By Dillon Mullan September 8 at 10:54 PM

West Potomac built early momentum with a long touchdown pass and an interception in the end zone, but its model for success was not sustainable Friday night.

On the visiting bench, Madison was not quite revving from the opening whistle. Its running game needed time to find its top gear, but once it did, there was no stopping the Warhawks.

Madison absorbed a few big plays and kept churning for a dominant 38-16 road win over the Wolverines.

“We knew we were going to come out here and dominate on both sides of the ball,” Warhawks senior offensive lineman Sammy Junco said. “We took a few series to get going but in the end there was no stopping us.”

No. 12 West Potomac (2-1) grabbed its only lead in the final minute of the first quarter when senior quarterback Tanner Jones stepped up in the pocket and hit senior wide receiver Nigel Okunubi in stride for a 63-yard score.

No. 15 Madison (3-0) drove to the Wolverines’ 11-yard line on the ensuing drive, but West Potomac sophomore Micah McDonald read Madison senior quarterback John Cothran’s eyes and intercepted his pass in the end zone.

Madison wasn’t done making mistakes. On its next drive, the Warhawks committed five penalties but still managed to advance into the red zone.

On third down, senior running back Casey Koshuta took a pitch to the right and pulled up short of the line of scrimmage and delivered a short touchdown toss to junior wide receiver John Finney as Madison took the lead into halftime.

After the break, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Koshuta didn’t need any tricks. He carried the ball 21 times for 105 yards in the second half to finish with 176 yards on 37 carries.

As West Potomac’s defense showed signs of fatigue in the later stages of the game, Madison’s seized the opportunity.

“This is what those offseason workouts are all about, being ready to come out here and dominate,” Koshuta said. “We preach adversity, we knew this game was going to be hard, but that’s what this season is about — fighting through adversity.”

West Potomac avoided a blowout thanks to another deep ball from Jones. This time senior DeAndre Webb ran away from the secondary for an 86-yard touchdown that cut Madison’s lead to 31-16 with 11 minutes to play.

“I knew from the beginning that we would have opportunities for shots,” Jones said. “But we got to stay together for the whole game on every drive. We can’t have players branching off a little bit and trying to do their own thing.”

Fittingly, Koshuta sealed the victory by running over several Wolverines to score his second touchdown of the game with four minutes left.

After three impressive wins, Madison will travel to Ashburn to take on No. 7 Stone Bridge (2-0) next Friday.

It would only be bizarre if it stayed that way. Lb and SC have played westfields and cvilles, and Westpos and stone bridges

the teams at the top of the patriot right now have not ... they have their tough games later

Article captures the game pretty well.

Madison ran it right at the West Potomac defense most of the night, 4, 5, 7 yards a shot for the most part w/ Casey Koshuta (and Brandon Walker). More run heavy than usual with a few key passing plays, partly because West Potomac's line had good drive into and collapsed the pocket a few times early in the game. The Madison drive to make 10-8 at the end of the half was 7:20 long (even w/ a bunch of dumb penalties). They went to their #2 QB (Patrick Berry) in the second half after their starter (John Cothran) tweeked his ankle on a run option during that drive...didn't slow them down.

West Po's run/pass option offense had a few moments, but whatever their blocking scheme, Madison kept penetrating. The Wolverines did as well as they did by individual athleticism more so than scheme, coaching or conditioning (IMO).

Madison is @ Stone Bridge next week...that will be very interesting. The Warhawk's toughest games are all away this season including South County, Westfield and Centreville later in the season.

Excellent game summary as always. It's getting to be some kind of syndrome for SouthCo, that they play tough, close games but seem just fall short.

Any thoughts about what's missing for them?

Thanks for the updates, that Stone Bridge game went about how I expected. In the videos I've seen of Lake Braddock, their tackling has been terrible.

This is correct. Fairfax's two wins are against McLean and Lee. They have Hayfield this week, which should be a loss. The game the following week against Annandale will be more revealing as to what kind of team they have this year.

I hate to admit this, but I think Stone Bridge could beat any team in NOVA this year, and are probably one of the top 2-3 teams in VA in any class.

To be honest, I am not that educated in the intricate schemes and tactics required to analyze a football team well. But I have found over the years that I can see some scores, watch a few games, and then be quite accurate as to which teams are the better ones. That said, I expected a SC win last night based on the egg that CV laid last week against Champe, but I think the CV loss last week was just a bad game after I saw them in person last night. The CV running game was certainly able to exploit the SC defense with its speed and quickness, but the most important factor was that CV's #13, Anunay, played exceptional defense on Spalding. He tipped away the first three passes thrown to Spalding and was only beat on two pass plays all night, limiting Spalding to just 3-4 catches. Spalding's ability just kills most teams so the defense of Anunay was the deciding factor, IMO. When SC had the ball on their last drive with about 2 mins to go I thought they might pull it out since they marched right down the field on CV the previous drive using their bread and butter, the passing game. But when Tull did not/could not throw the ball away and was sacked near midfield, that was huge as far as a single play in the game. The Maxwell kid for CV then made a great read and got the INT that sealed the win.

Stone Bridge is definitely a state champion in recruiting. Every year they bring in at least 2-3 impact kids from other schools.

Just a heads up Chantilly football has 10 sophomores starting on the Varsity this year so the future SHOULD BE bright, the present is a brutal reality that the current senior class and current junior class drew a line in the sand with the 'old' staff and this is the direct result of their dumb decision to do nothing football related for years, the 10th graders will get better each week BUT the schedule makers did Chantilly no favors as well, suffer and lose now to have a chance to climb out of the basement later!

Your youth feeder league is awful and what little talent you do get you can't keep cuz they get tired of losing and parents move to CVHS or WHS district or the kid(s) are knuckleheads and get in trouble and wind up at Mt View.

I do like your optimism, you must be a coach or have a kid at CHS but let's be real, your bad unathletic sophomores will become bad somewhat athletic seniors which will be good for 3-4 wins.

Can a head coach change really make that much difference? They got a LOT of hype last year and fell flat. And they lost a good bit of talent from last year.

Compare last seasons TC or Mt Vernon teams to the season before and tell me if a coaching change makes a difference.

Dominion @ South Lakes (-30.0)

Forest Park @ Centreville (-24.0)

Hayfield (-35.0) @ Fairfax

Herndon (-15.0) @ Marshall
*This will really be a measuring stick for the Concorde, if this is a close game which is very possible… The once mighty concorde is no more.

Jefferson (-3.0) @ Manassas Park
*If Jefferson is going to win their first game in years it’s this Friday playing a winless team outscored 119-0. This one can go either way.

Lee @ Stuart (-6.0): This one will be close.

Madison @ Stone Bridge (-7.0)
*Game of the Week

McLean (-1.0) @ Edison

Mount Vernon (-35.0) @ Washington-Lee

Potomac Falls (-10.0) @ Langley

- Agreed. This is the GAME of the week. I really like Madison, many thought that they wouldn't stand a chance in the Concorde but they have a legit shot at winning the Concorde district (either them, Cville or Westfield will win it). However, my gut tells me Stone Bridge will win.

Hard one to pick. Two polar opposite teams, in terms of style of play; Robinson is a very physical team and TC is highly athletic. Flip coin says Robo.

It simply says Centreville's Defensive Coordinator knows what every other Coordinator should know, You press Spalding and provide Safety help over the Top. Westfield Chose to stay in Zone most of the night allowing Spalding to catch a ball underneath and run through several Arm Tackles. Very few HS QB's are afforded more than 3 seconds in the pocket if you as a defense can hold up/ disrupt the receivers route(s) for even 1.5 seconds the Reads change dramatically and with one or two exceptions most QB's at this level are lucky to get to their second read before tucking and running or getting Sacked. Westfield utilized that Template to great success the Previous year when Joey Free had as many interceptions as Spalding had catches in their 2 Matchups. We all know Spalding is going to get his, it doesn't mean Teams should pad his stats by refusing to implement the demonstrated scheme that Works. #13 for Centreville did a great job and battled all night. There are several more Langleys on South County's schedule so Tull and Spalding will have ample opportunity to exploit overmatched Defenses.

...from Washington Post AllMetSports High school football notebook:

MADISON QB OUT 2-3 WEEKS

Warhawks senior quarterback John Cothran left Madison’s win over West Potomac last week with a knee injury the team feared could be season-ending. Instead doctors told Cothran he’ll likely miss two to three weeks, he told the Post. He’s set to get an MRI Friday to confirm there are no ligament tears.

The No. 12 Warhawks face No. 7 Stone Bridge on Friday in Ashburn.

That makes him potentially available for the South County game on the 28th...more likely for Westfield the following week. We'll see if Patrick Berry can continue to run the office at a high level in the face of the Stone Bridge defense...

who is playing quarterback for Madison. They have no shot of going into Ashburn and winning this year. And for those that think the outcome will have more to do with the injury, remember that Stone Bridge's best player is out for the year already.

Sorry, Fairfax fans. Biggest game of the year this year will be 9-0 Broad Run travelling to face 9-0 Stone Bridge for Potomac District title in Loudoun County.

CENTREVILLE HEEDS WAKE-UP CALL AFTER LOSS TO CHAMPE

Maybe all it took for Centreville to play its best football was a 28-21 loss to Champe in Week 1. The following Friday, the Stallions rode two 100-yard rushers to a bounce-back win over South County.

“We kind of got slapped in the face the week before [against Champe] and that woke up our program,” coach Chris Haddock said.

Bassie Kanu led the rushing attack against South County with 25 carries for 150 yards, and Jordan Wright had eight carries for 117 yards, including a 77-yard score.

Their preparation for the Stallions started in earnest on Monday. Saturday had been designated for airing out what went wrong against Champe, an opportunity to learn and then move on.

“Every week after a loss is a unique balance between learning from our mistakes and getting focused on the week ahead,” Haddock said. “We got focused real quick this week.”

This is the fifth installment of The Washington Post’s high school football notebook series, published twice weekly on Sunday and Thursday.

MOUNT VERNON OFFENSE SLOWING DOWN — FOR ITS OWN GOOD

After his team scored 70 points in their season opener against Edison, Mount Vernon Coach Monty Fritts had a unique problem on his hands the following Friday in another big win over Langley: On possessions in which his highflying, experienced offense didn’t score, players were getting frustrated on the sideline.

“The kids had unreal expectations,” Fritts said. “They had gotten accustomed to scoring every play. That gave us a bit of a learning curve.”

While it wasn’t quite the same performance as their debut, the Majors’ offense did put 37 points against Langley to go 2-0. For win three, it was 34 points in a win over Falls Church.

Fritts said the key so far has been the excess of weapons they have surrounding the heart of their offense — quarterback Tim Heltzel, a two-year starter, and wideout Darrien Newton, who Fritts called “one of the best players in the state.” That speed has given Mount Vernon big-play ability the Majors are starting to learn to do without.

"Westfield Chose to stay in Zone most of the night"


Probably not a bad choice in the end. When your best corner is 5'6" and the other is playing in second varsity game ever. Plan will likely be different if they meet again in the playoffs.

From the Washington Post high school football notes...

STUART'S 'BEST-KEPT SECRET'

Who is Ayhan Yenican? The Stuart quarterback who threw for 367 yards and five touchdowns last week. "He's the best-kept secret in Northern Virginia," Raiders Coach Clarence Martin said.

Martin caught glimpses of what Yenican, at 6-3, 210 pounds, could do last year, when he went under center after Stuart's starter went down and threw for more than 400 yards in a game. Martin gave him some snaps the rest of the season, but it was never truly Yenican's offense until this season.

"It was important to have a full off-season with him as the definite starter," Martin said. "He has great chemistry with the receivers."

Westfield did press Spalding with help over the top on almost every snap. He caught one ball with three defenders on top of him and his catch in overtime for a TD with was with two defenders closely covering him. In both cases Spalding made a tremendous adjustment to the ball which he does so well. Tull threw the ball into coverage because Spalding wins the majority of 50/50 balls. The hitch he caught for a 76 yard TD was a good adjustment by South County's coaches (and poor tackling by the Westfield secondary) by moving Spalding from the outside position in trips to an inside slot. Lastly, Spalding had 4 catches for 101 yards against Centreville. Although he did not have a receiving TD, 25 yards a catch is very impressive. Spalding deserves his due. So to say teams are choosing to refuse to implement schemes work is totally inaccurate.
