That’s what you all said about this years team and they went 15-0! Every school should hope to have a “down” Westfield type of year. Oh and they managed to vanquish OS in regulation this year, didn’t need OT, I hope WHS has another “down” year.

Many skill position players returning. JV was weak this year, but that's because Simmons pulled the better players up to Varsity. Freshmen were undefeated and won by an average of 18 points. Future looking bright for the Bulldogs and their wondrous Broadwalk Fries! Don't bet against them.

With Doc and staff in its second year, look for big things from LB.
Lake Braddock's only competition might be Westfield next year.

I think everyone will agree that they got this program tuned around and going in the right direction. A very supportive administration and AD has made this transition a very smooth one. There is no more me, it all we now!

A lot of returning starters will fuel the fire for a deep playoff run.

Cheers to the best staff in the state.

Gonna schedule 1A teams for 2018 so you can have opposing team drop 70+ points on you in the playoffs next year? What a joke and embarrassment to FFX Co football with that performance against Patriot HS in the playoffs.

For the first time in a long time, and definitely the first time in the past 3 years, Westfield will be the clear cut favorites to win it all. In previous years they were just expected to make their annual trip to the region championship game and lose, and more recently, specifically the last 3 seasons, they weren't expected to be actual contenders because they kept on graduating over half their starters. This is the first time in a while that Westfield won't be doing that and this is due to the team being relatively young this year as well a small senior class numbers wise by Westfield standards. On offense they will be returning only 2 O-Lineman that started but they had some big guys on the bench and at the JV level. At TE they will have Joe Clancy back, who didn't play that much TE this year till near the end but that was because he was a starter on defense. At RB they will be getting back Eugene Asante who's should be making a run at All-Met Honors and will be one of the top RBs in the state. They also have a lot of depth at this position as well. At WR they bring back their entire group which consists of the 3 best receivers in their conference in Kiley, Morin, and Woodley, who also happen to be 3 of the best receivers in the region. One thing to watch out for though is that Morin plays both ways. Noah Kim will be coming into the year as the best QB in the state and expect him to dominate other teams as a Junior. Now that his first year as a starter is out of the way and all his weapons are returning, it'll be a scary year for the rest of the state. On defense they will be losing their most 3 important players but this happens most years and I think the Bulldogs will be fine. They won't be as strong on the D-Line as they were the past 3 years but they should be more than okay, especially since the rest of the defense is stacked. They are graduating 2 LBs, but Clancy, Newborn, Dishun, and McClain, all who received major play time or started will be back. The defensive secondary will be losing 2 players but they bring back Morin and Hinton who are clearly 2 of the best DBs in the entire state. Special teams will be weird. Their punting game was strong this year with Steinhilber but looking at what the team is returning I don't think they will be punting much next year. 2 of the 3 kickers they used will be back so I don't think the kicking game will change that much either. Their two most dangerous returners Morin and Hinton will once again dominante the return game. Their freshman team went undefeated and didn't really have many close games, so I'd expect a few sophomores playing up and making an impact. There's always a few new kids and kids that hadn't made much impact in the past doing big things. Put all these factors together as well as the best coaching staff in the state and I think Westfield is the clear cut favorite to win it all once again.

A couple of things:

One of the things that makes Simmons so successful is that he picks over the JV team like a vulture and brings up all their players who can play backup. That's why the team doesn't have noticeable drop offs in talent.

The freshmen team was very potent offensively. Not as much defensively. Any rising sophomores that Simmons brings up from the JV will most probably be on offense, where the varsity team will already be strong next year. Some of the returning backups are going to have to step it up to the next level if WF wants to 4peat.

The kicking game isn't a strength for the bulldogs. Wasn't this year. Won't be next year either. With all those hispanics in that school, you'd think they could find a decent place kicker and booming punter.

What a wonderful year Lake Braddock had in 2017.
They had a playoff game at home and a very successful season.
They have a lot of very good players coming back and a few maybe football scholarship players.

The coaching staff has done a fabulous job molding these young men into successful student athletes.

The program has now been turned around after a few years of questionable character and disruption, I think we can expect more of this kind of success in 2018.

Go Bruins!!!

You forgot Jewell at center on offense, he's a two year starter, next year will be 3, he also won a few post season accolades. They have some pretty big juniors who should be able to plug the empty holes on the rest of the line. They lose lineman every year but every year seem to find ample replacements. With Kim, Asante, Morin, Kiley, Clancy, and Woodley returning on the offense they'll definitely have the capability of putting up some points. Don't forget Soto and Daniel, both sophomores, who got playing time can contribute as well.

On defense Roberts returns on the line, Aguilar who got playing time and is a sophomore will be back. Would expect to see Clancy on the line as well, will be too big for LB next year. Newborn and Dishun will be the starting at LB's on the inside, can have Gepford in the mix as well, McLain outside. Then Morin and Hinton in the secondary along with probably Kiley and Johnson who both saw plenty of time back there.

I agree that kicking will be a big question mark, but it was this year and they seemed to be okay. Hildrup who did plenty of kicking will be back, think he got injured late in the year. He showed promise so he might turn out to be a decent surprise. Their return game with Hinton and Morin will be dangerous, don't forget Morin's punt, field goal, and extra point block ability.

The one thing I disagree with is the comment that they'll be the clear favorite for the first time in a long time. Not so true, entering the 2015 campaign they were picked by Gameday Magazine, Washington Post, Rivals, and a few others to be the cream of 6A North.

Westfield will be A favorite next year not THE favorite. You win and lose largely by the play in the "trenches" and until we know how they replace their lineman on both sides of the ball it is too early to "crown their ass."

Look for a resurgence from South County. They went 13-0 two years ago before losing the region and have stumbled to 4 and 6 loss seasons with about the same level of talent. They will make a push to win the region next year.

Lake Braddock and Centreville will have something to say about it as well. Expect South Lakes and Madison to be off a bit compared to the last several years.

Westfield needs Oakton and Chantilly to rebound. In order to stay sharp they need a tougher schedule.

Freedom, Woodbridge, Hylton, Battlefield and Patriot are all losing a ton of senior talent. Will be interesting to see Prince William will be able to challenge for the region title again.

Westfield: Is the favorite next year, until someone beats them.....they bring most of a State Championship team back. Best coaching staff in the state!!

South County: Will rebound from 2 down years and be a contender for the region. They always have athletes, coaching needs to be better this year

Centreville: Should give Westfield a run for the money, big team coming back with very good skill kids

South Lakes: I think they may surprise people. lost the big 3, but has some good players coming up

Lake Braddock: Don't see them contending, they had a loaded team this year and did very little. Offense was exposed by Woodbridge. They only beat teams with losing records. The so called "best staff in the state" had the talent to compete with Westfield, just not the coaching

Freedom, Woodbridge, Hylton, Battlefield and Patriot: All have good athletes, Look for Battlefield to pull away from PW pack this year

Besides the usual suspects, who are the sleeper teams that will rise up and challenge the typical top teams (WHS CVHS LB SoCo)? Can Freedom W., Woodbridge, Battlefield, Hylton & Patriot replicate the successes they had this past season after losing so much talent (which PWCO school will Rob Giapapa gush over)? Will Chantilly or McLean finally win a game(maybe they can schedule TJ). My pick is keep an eye on Robinson.

Robinson just isn’t very good. I’ve watched them 2 times each of the past two years. They play very hard and disciplined football, but they don’t have much talent. They aren’t big or fast. They beat the hell out of the teams they should beat, but they struggle against teams with athletes. If they had a few more athletes like Braddock has they would be a contender every year.

Exactly, Robo bring Robo, doing what they do best, nothing flashy could be all they need with the talent drain from the schools in their district. LB loses a lot, so does SOCo. Could be their year along with W.Springfield.

This will be Lake Braddock's year for 3 reasons:


3. They have quite a few starters returning this year on offense and defense.
2. The conference is weak this year, SoCo, Robinson down
1. Doc and staff will have a full year to get this team ready.


Doc did a great job turning this program around that has been spiraling out of control for the last few years. Putting a great staff together late, so many distractions, injuries, players needing discipline, all of this and they turned it around and won the conference. This was one of the best years LB has had in recent memory.

They had 7 or 8 All Conference players, including the Coach of the year, so look for LB to do big things this coming year

Doc didn't have the talent those other Braddock teams had. They were all stacked teams full of scholarship players

This team had minimal talent and Doc and staff coached it up and got everything they could out of them.

The previous staff knew it would be a down year, so that's why they were all so eager to leave. Doc and staff welcomed the challenge and met it head on. That's what coaching is all about.

Now with year 2 coming up for the staff, you will see why people here are calling this best staff in the state. They are building this program to win year in and year out.

They will challenge Westfield for the region title and be one of the top teams in the state.

The Lake Braddock run is over!!!

Doc couldn't win with a very good team. Why would anyone think this guy can coach?

He hasn't shown any reason to believe that he is nothing more then an average coach. He can not coach on the level of the better teams and has demonstrated that this year

He had a all region QB and 3 all region receivers as well as a good O line. A couple of all regions on defense as well and the POY on offense and defense.

He went 8-4 with that, give that kind of talent to Centreville, WP, SoCo or Hayfield and they compete with Westfield for championships.

Sorry LB for all the talent you have, you need better coaching if you want to compete with the better teams

Feel bad for LB fans next year when you don’t have all the great talent from this past year, say hello to 5-5.

Sorry, but that poster is right, there is nothing returning like you had this year. Darcy, Methany, Cobb were usually the best players on the field on almost every game.

Offense:
No QB returning, with only 1 decent receiver returning and they may have to use him at QB, the others are average, The run game isn't good enough to carry them. 28 is coming off injury and is too small to carry the load. Average O line, just like this year

Defense:
1 good line man and LB return but that's basically it. The DB 6 that got hurt cant cover anyone.

Coaching:
Wasn't very good this year with a lot of talent ..it will have to be much better and I don't see that happening

Anyone can throw and look like they did something for paper but in the end did you win when it mattered. That would be a big fat NO! Same goes to AJ. You had 50plus tds but did you come up big in playoff/crunch time, NO! Last but not least, quit with the we had the toughest schedule bit ok. You had Fairfax, Yorktown, Woodson, WSHS, Oakton, Robo and you lost to a 1 dimensional West Po team, those were hardly a murderers row.

Freedom W, don’t even let me get started on all the crappy PWCO teams you padded your stats against

I thought the Freedom QB was pretty good, very athletic and threw the ball pretty well. They lost a tough game to Ricky Slade and Hylton in the end.

The Braddock QB was decent, the offense was geared towards stats, not wins. Most of his throws were screens and short throws to athletes who got a lot of yards after catch. The better teams were able to defend them.

I agree about the schedule, they had 6 easy win games 7 counting SoCo, who had a down year,besides SoCO did they beat anyone with a winning record?

AJ is small explosive athlete. His running ability is amazing but his throwing leaves a lot to be desired. Arm strength and accuracy is avg at best but mainly his lack of size (5’7” maybe) will keep him from playing QB on Saturdays.

Lake Braddock football team was well above average ? NO WAY!!!!

Name one signature win they had?

Win: Robinson, TC Woodson, Yorktown, Fairfax, Woodson, Oakton, South County
Lost: Westfield, Stone Bridge, West Potomac, Woodbridge

All there wins were over teams they should have beaten and beaten badly.

Westfield, Stone Bridge and Woodbridge crushed them
West Potomac didn't even have a winning season and beta them

Braddock was a average team and may struggle this year to be an average team.
No returning QB and losing 4 and 21 will kill them both on offense and defense.

Looks like 5-5 at best this year for a once proud program

I think LB will do just fine for this upcoming season. The only teams we know for certain they'll lose to is Westfield and Stone Bridge. Definite wins are Yorktown, West Springfield, Fairfax, Woodson, Robinson and Oakton. Toss up games will be against South County and West Potomac (which they have a high chance of winning). I see them finishing no less than 7-3 (probably will go 8-2). The real question is how will they do in the 2018 playoffs? Its been a while since they've won the regional title.

Interesting that they chose to put Kyle Simmons name in the article about Hs coaches that could possibly leave for college programs. What are the chancs he does leave? That would make the whole state happy and open the door for other teams to rise up and grab the 6A championship. Who from the North would benefit most from his departure? Could OS finally break through with Simmons departure? Most importantly, who would be most likely candidate to replace him?

If coach Simmons were to leave Westfield, then coach Doc from Lake Braddock would be the likely candidate. I could not imagine them considering anyone else.

Doc did a great job rebuilding the spiraling program at LB and lead the team to the Patriot conference championship. In addition, he was the coach of the year.
He has made LB a contender again.

He and his staff are poised for another great year at LB, but if Westfield calls, then he and staff would lead them to another championship.

Under coach Doc, LB is building a class program that makes the players accountable for their actions.

They were the Patriot Conference champions and had a number of All Conference Players in addition to the Conference Coach of the Year.

The change in this program where character matters a lot, has made a big difference.

With the strides that were made last year, the program has come full circle and is now back on the winning track.

Look for this team to do big things in 2018, the coaching staff has everyone in the building on the same page and are destined for glory.

Making Coaching Great AGAIN, ONE Half-Time snack at a Time.

They are completely changing the mentality on Burke Lake Road by implementing "Movie Nite" in the weight room, 3:00-6:00 daily for all players. Featuring ALL-U-CAN-EAT Ihop pancakes & THE BRAINTRUST bonding experience of "Enabling Parents ONLY" @ the bi-monthly "Eat the Trough Nite." Two GREAT ways to building the program @ LB.

The program under coach P was great for the last 8-9 years, we knew we were going to win 10-12 games and go deep into the playoffs every year. We were soldiers, always ready to play and was never intimidated by anyone.

We had some success against Westfield in the regular season, but could not beat them in the playoffs, when it mattered most. However, so did everyone else. That is why they are 3 time state champs. Westfield is one of the all time best programs in the state.

These clowns at LB now, had a loaded team handed to them and couldn't compete with the better teams, in fact they were blown out in 3 of the 4 losses. The staff did not have enough experience in winning and playing against good teams so they did not have the team prepared. They were intimidated at Westfield, Stone Bridge and Woodbridge, that's on the coaching staff.

So before you say LB is back on the winning track, look at the previous 4 years, 10 plus wins every year and a deep playoff run. You would have to say, they need to get back on the winning track.

Coach P was a great coach, he taught us life lessons through football and so what if a few rules were fractured, we had his back and he had ours. Ask some of his former players that are now a success in life, how LB football helped them. That's what coaching is all about. So stop bashing the previous teams and embrace them.

So Westfield has to prove 2017 wasn't a fluke in what way? Not sure a team that goes 15-0, wins its 3rd consecutive state championship in the states largest classification has anything to prove. Please explain what you meant by that comment....

I am not sure any of the Fairfax County teams can beat them. Maybe Freedom, Woodbridge, Battlefield or Forrest Park can give them a game

1 Centreville - They may give them a battle because its a rivalry

2 South County - Could be an interesting game, SoCo will be much improved this year

3 Robinson - They are one dimensional, Westfield is built to stop the run

4 South Lakes - Couldn't beat them last year with SL best team they have ever had

5 Lake Braddock - Couldn't beat them last year with a loaded team, Coaching isn't experienced enough.

Robinson has played Westfield as tough as anyone the last couple of years. They easily could have won the last two games, but the bulldogs squeaked out a couple of wins. Robinson appears well coached and physical, but they are in need of one or two more playmakers. The other teams listed have more talent but Westfield has been able to beat them much easier.

It was a very close game but only a bonehead play on 4th and less than a yard inside Madison's 15 prevented Westfield from putting 7 points on the board. They had just moved the ball down the field with under 2 minutes to go and got cute by trying to run a pitch.

If Westfield had run the ball between the tackles they get a first down, few plays later their scoring a TD. Inept play calling at the end of the game by Westfield is what kept Madison in the game.

Don't know about the other teams but Westfield has a good number of starters coming back. The Bulldogs bring back 8 offensive starters and 7 on the defense.

The Bulldogs offense should be pretty explosive, QB, RB, TE, and 3 WR's who were all starters are back. On defense Westfield always is tough, Shields is an incredible d-coordinator and they've got some pretty solid underclassmen who'll be filling the holes left by graduation.

That's because Simmons thought Asante had the speed to beat Madison's defense to the edge...that was a coaching "Decision", a wrong one. That's why the game is played. Lamented points not on the board, are simply points not scored...just like the pass Madison's John Finney didn't catch in the end zone at the end of the game.

Madison returns players on both sides of the ball, but not as many as Westfield. Key will be who is coming up on the O and D lines. Their QB from last year is returning (not Noah Kim...) but the rising Junior QB is one to watch down the road.

End of the day...Westfield, Centreville and Madison will beat the snot out of each other again next year...and beat up on Oakton and Chantilly.

Not impressed at all by Westfield and its sycophantic fans. Come on Simmons, you are a pussy, need to cover yourself with how many head coaching hires, and so is the Administration and parents. Grow some real balls folks and dont forget to bring the fresh cut fries.

NOT IMPRESSED!

By all accounts no one picked WHS to 3peat, especially with all the key players who graduated. There were a bunch of people on ffu doubting WHS QB & that he’d crumble under the weight of expectations. So it was more “unexpected” than a fluke. Now moving to next season, who can replace #97, (believe he was All-Met) & #75, monster OLineman. I didn’t see any undecassmen during the playoff game vs SL that will come close to filling their shoes. The one big kid they had quit to play basketball. Doesn’t bode well for Bulldogs.

Screw everyone in Concorde district, Wildcats taking it this year. Best stable of RB’s & this year Haddock will unleash the offense in an aerial attack liked of which you’ve never seen from the Wildcats before. Haddock realizes he need to air it out more and has the QB & WR to finally do it.

They've got big kids to fill the void, just look at the roster from last year. The big kid you're talking about who plays basketball is not a football player, that's why he quit. Sure Cockrill and St. Germain will be missed, just like Petrillo, Johnson, Frimpong, Free, and Eckert were missed heading into last season. Sort of the same with the Bulldogs missing Scanlon, Clancy, and Aiello the year before. As with the year before, Gibson, Scoville, Moore, etc.. Bottom line every year the program loses kids but doesn't seem to miss a beat

Yep, sure, you sound like the guy from this past season that said Centreville was the team to beat. Something about having the best QB, RB's, and WR's in the region. How'd that work out, your big brothers over at Westfield were the ones who wound up having them, and still do!

I thought heading into last season most thought Westfield was the team to beat until someone eventually would beat them. They lost key players from the year before but still had plenty of talent returning.

They had a ton of juniors coming into the season that either started as sophomores or played a great deal the year before. The only true question marks were kicking and the QB.

The QB was slow to start off but not unusual, Simmons typically keeps the playbook small until he feels his QB is comfortable then opens it up. Did the same with Johnson, Scanlon, Scoville, & Mullins over the previous 5 seasons.

I don't really think you can say a team that goes undefeated, beats the likes of Woodbridge and Oscar Smith in back to back weeks to capture their 3rd straight state title had a fluke season. That's just plain asinine, maybe they overachieved, or possibly they were just the best team at the end of the day.

Also, Westfield has never been short on big kids, they had plenty of size, still do.

This is part of what has become wrong with America. We've become a nation of pussies, and try to write it off being smarter. Kids aren't playing baseball and lacrosse because they are "elite" or "smart", they are playing it because their parents are afraid they will get hurt, and don't want them playing a physical game against "those mean, big, black kids." If you think it's anything else, you're a fool. As a white football dad, I can tell you I have heard that conversation more times than I'd like to admit, but it is true.

By the way, what sports are at the top of the concussion occurrence scale? Not football. Skateboarding, girls soccer, hockey, and boys soccer all have a hire rate of concussions than football. That's according to a Mayo Clinic study. Why don't you hear about this, because no one really cares about those sports.

And while I'm at it, shut up with your damn complaining about Westfield hiring former HC's as assistants. That's the kind of thing all coaches should be doing. Why other coaches in the country aren't doing this I do not understand. Just because other coaches are stupid, it doesn't make the WF coach a "cheater". When you stay something that stupid, you show you know absolutely nothing about the sport. And that you are probably a 15 year old who should be in class taking notes, not at home stroking it to your fantasy's about how great you could be. Idiot.

That is an odd thing to say as Chantilly played almost all underclassmen and Stonewall's QB was about their best athlete last year.

Lake Braddock will be lucky to be 5-5 this year. They had a loaded team last year and were the worst Braddock team in the past 5 years. They have less talent this year and poor coaching.

Sorry, but not a fan of Doc and staff, they have not shown they can develop players and that will show this year

Say what you want. This is high school and winning matters but so does a lot of other stuff. The players of last year at LB will tell you they fought the change when Doc came in. They were completely undisciplined and failed to work together. They’re in the grove as a team now and will move mountains together as young men. Don’t see it in the scoreboard?

Who cares about the LB coach Doc, he sucks! He went 8-4 with a loaded team.

Give that team to Centreville, SoCo, South Lakes, Madison coaching staff and they compete with Westfield for the state championship.

The only grove that they will be in, is the 5-5 groove the next few years.

The only mountain they will move is those fat ass coaches from one table to the next

Face LB, Doc is an average coach with a above average team of talent, the team struggles because of the staff.

Undisciplined? Methany, Cobb, Darcy and Hurley were some of the best players in the region and even in the state. Take them off LB's team, they are maybe 3-7, 4-6. I think the staff just didn't have enough experience with a high profile program and didn't know how to handle their top players.

Maybe if they would have hired coach Morgan and coach Price they wouldn't had had those issues.

Both are very respected coaches and Doc passed on them. That was a big mistake, they could have helped bridge the gap with the players and the new coaches.

Its too bad for LB because they are both coaches that the players loved playing for. Last year, coach Price won a state championship with Westfield and coach Morgan is help building the program at W T Woodson.

I wish both continued success

When the new HS opens in ‘20 out in Chantilly and causes massive re-zoning, WHS well will run dry that day and expect to see Simmons all of a sudden “retire” from coaching.

I think you have to include Braddock's coach Doc in that conversation as well, for one of the best coaches in the northern region.
He is running a program at LB where character matters.

My guesses on it being an asst coach that was spurned by Simmons from joining his staff or parent of former Cville player who is insanely jealous of Bulldogs success or former player (most likely a benchwarmer) that is longing for his glory days (that never happened cuz he was a benchwarmer) that is now working as a sandwich artist. Either way he’s a lame troll.

But let me stop the idle speculation, I need to get back with my bulldog buddies to the Kyle Simmons (and 10 head coaching contingent) milking session - wanna cum. Plus we are getting together later this morning to talk about optimal angles on our fresh cut fries for next season at the stadium. Will the honorable and esteemed Westfield faithful like regular cut or crinkle cut or waffle cut best this next year - we aim to find out.

Westfield forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First, the majority of the WHS posts are from the same person who has been mentioned in numerous prior posts as being a troll.

Second, you're correct, anyone else can post on this thread, but it seems that it's losing its following as a result of the afore mentioned troll.

Third, you can't really blame those Westfield faithful who do actually post here, 18 seasons, 189-38 overall record, 10 or so District/Conference titles, 9 Region appearances coming away with 5 titles, then of course 5 State championships, last 3 consecutive. It's pretty damn impressive when you take your hatred away for this program.

Coach Doc has done a wonderful job at Lake Braddock, in just one year he has quite a few boys getting football scholarships. There were 3-4 announced this week and I am sure more to come.

He is running a program where character matters and all the hard work is paying off.

I don't see that happening in the other programs.

Now you can clearly see why, people are saying the LB staff, is the best in the state.

Keep up the good work!!

You realize that's 2 players out of a team of what, 85? They'll have plenty of size, experience, ability to put up points, and a stingy defense. Let's not forget the best coaching staff in the region. Hate to burst your bubble, but every year we hear of the impending demise of Westfield, yet every year they're in the thick of it.

Oh yeah, two more facts, first, Westfield usually loses a handful of key players to graduation every year, not so this year. The 2 above you mention, that's it as far as true impact senior players go.

Second and final, Oscar Smith the past 3 seasons has been far bigger than Westfield in size, athletic ability as well you might say. But those typical Bulldog teams of quality players, playing as a team, with superior coaching takes the field, size means squat!

^^^ 85? Try 60-65 with half being JV. The well is beginning to run dry. There were no underclassmen to replace the size you are currently losing with this Sr class. After 2018 may be the end of your deep playoff run. From what I know, you guys don’t get the transfers that above schools mentioned get, you don’t even get the transfers that CVHS get.

He has a full off season to work with the players and has built this team with character and pride. This team can and will move mountains. You can either get on the bus or get out the way, this team is moving full steam ahead. Stand in the way, and you will get run over

Everyone in the conference/region/state will get a chance to see for themselves, why this is being called "The Best Staff in the State".

They're underclassmen that have size, but once again, the biggest team has not won the 6A title the past 3 seasons, the best coached team has. But you're correct, after the 2018 season, they very well may take a step back. The original debate though was for the 2018 season which the Bulldogs will be more than adequately ready to defend their title. they have 8 starters on offense and 7 on defense, with 3 others who had a great deal of playing time this past season. Did I also mention they have the best group of coaches too....

Most all of the talent graduated the previous year. He and the staff had to developed the talent that you saw last year and did so coming in late following a lot of turmoil. 5-6 players from that team are now playing college football because of Doc and the staff's hard work.

He now has the program under his control and its going to take off from there.

I've read through all of the HS Football threads, and can't always tell which LB poster are serious and which are tolls, but enough has been said about Coach Doc "teaching those boys character", I just have to through this out there.

Regarding personal character, LB was one of the worst team in the region last year under Doc. It's not unusual for players to mouth off on the field during plays, in fact, that's part of the game. But LB had a group of players who would stand on the sideline spending most of the game talking to opposing players. It was very evident on kickoff's but happened throughout the game.

After the Robinson game, one of the LB players said something to a Robinson player during post game handshake that resulted in the Robinson player throwing a punch. The Robo player, the best player on their team, was suspended by Robinson's coach for two weeks, including a crucial game against SoCo. The LB kid missed no playing time. The words the player used were far worst that what the previous coach had been fired for.

Going back to last spring during 7v7, the LB players were constantly running their mouths to the point starting fights on the field. In fact, during the Falls Church tournament, at least two fights started, one involving LB coaches. Neither of the other teams had any issues in any other games.

I have never met the last coach, and wouldn't know him if he started talking to me, but I know this type of stuff never happened when he was there. I don't meant that as a judgement on him, but more as a point to say Coach Doc and the new staff are certainly not teaching those kids about character. They may be talking about it, but the proof is in actions, not words.

So stop with all of crap about teaching those boys to be men. And start holding the new staff accountable for their actions.

Coach Doc is a good guy. He gets caught up in hyping up his program a little too much but he does things above the board and expects the kids to do the same.
As far as the Robinson situation goes I don’t think the coaches have any issues with each other. I was told the Robinson coach helped a couple LB kids get some college looks. He wouldn’t have done that if he felt like Coach Doc didn’t handle the situation fairly.

Coach Doc may be a good guy, but 8-4 with the team he had, isn't going to cut it.

They were totally dominated and intimidated in the losses they had. Its one thing to get beat, but to get dominated and be scared playing any team, is a joke. The staff did not have them ready to play against Woodbridge, Stone Bridge or Westfield. All the other teams had losing records.

They have an extremely talented class coming back this year that is expected to do big things. If not, I don't expect Doc and staff to be around very long.


The Bruins boosters will expect a lot more this year, then what they saw last year.

Yeah right, LB staff blows. They UNDERachieved this past season despite having loads of talented and experienced players. They got embarrassed by Westfield, Stone Bridge and Woodbridge and lost to a down West Po team! This year, LB's staff will have even less talented players to work with. At best, they'll go 6-4 and will lose in the first round of the playoffs. Best staff in the state???? GTFO. Coach P was a much better coach than Doc.

LB coaching staff were scared to face us and they passed that down to their team. Those boys had legit fear in their eyes and did not want to play us in the payoff game. Coach Doc remembered how he got his ass beat by PWCO schools when he was at SJHS. I heard they left a trail of twinkies out of the locker room onto the field to get him back out after halftime.

Wildcats have Edmonds & Wright coming back their SR year at RB while Price & Ramos will be the JR RB’s who got the bulk of the work on JV last season. Look for Kalin to be more of a pass catcher as Haddock will try to capitalize on Egberts throwing ability to Jean who’s a good size target, he’s about 6’-6’1”. But if you have 2 legs CVHS will list you as a RB.

In reality, SL owes much of their success to being in the Liberty Conference (both pre- and post- realignment). Having guaranteed wins against Herndon, Langley, and McLean does wonders for your record. Really don't see that changing.

Also being in such a poor division and playing a soft regular season schedule did no favors for them come playoff time, gave themselves a false sense of security and well you know the rest, 3 years of getting drubbed by the Bulldogs.

I heard Kyle Simmons give a talk recently. He said that he believes he's found a formula which works for them. I guess it's just a matter figuring out his formula. Know your enemy, know you opponent, take down your opponent.

I have a friend who moved up to a head coaching position recently. If Westfield makes it again to the final game, I am confident my friend will be facing him. I will be there to see Westfield's bubble pop. Oscar Smith has had their 3 chances. This coming season will be different.

Doc has had a full year to build the program and they are doing really big things there. They have a lot of talent coming back this year and have bought into the Doc way, Character, Toughness and Discipline.


This is not the Braddock teams of the past, this is the new Bruins, Accountability, Energy and Tempo.

Combine all that with what most people are saying in the region, the "Best Staff in the State" I think you will agree, Lake Braddock is the team to beat

Westfield is the team to beat!!!!!
They have the best coaching staff in the state!!!

Top 5

1. Westfield - Do i really need to say anything
2. Centreville - Good athletes good system. QB could be the difference maker
3. Madison - Big on both lines, will give Westfield trouble
4. South County - Lots of athletes, coming off a down year, look for them to rebound in a big way
5. Robinson - Size and skill, good defense good running game, but can they throw the ball

Best of the rest

West Potomac - Good athletes, good coaching staff coming off a down year. They will be tough
South Lakes - Lost the big 3...but will still have good athletes to beat most teams
Hayfield - Always a contender, but finds ways to lose games they should win
TCW - Always dangerous with the athletes they have
Yorktown - Young team last year, will surprise a few teams this year

If it weren’t for WHS, PWCS pretty much dominated FCPS in playoffs. All of those teams return key players and look loaded as any FPCS if not more.

1. Westfield - Do i really need to say anything

2. Freedom - Played well all last season except for 1 game. They will be tough again this year. This coach will out work everyone else

3. Woodbridge - Could be the sleeper of the bunch. Always athletic and well coached and will do big things. Keep an eye on them

4. Centreville - Good athletes good system. QB could be the difference maker

5. Madison - Big on both lines, will give Westfield and others trouble.

6. Hylton - Always has good athletes, but no Ricky Slade this year

7. South County - Lots of athletes, coming off a
down year, look for them to rebound in a big way

8. Battlefield - Well coached, but too plain vanilla scheme to win the region

9. Robinson - Size and skill, good defense good
running game, but can they throw the ball

10. West Potomac - Good athletes, good coaching staff coming off a down year. They will be tough.

South Lakes - Lost the big 3...but will still have good athletes to beat most teams

Hayfield - Always a contender, but finds ways to lose games they should win

TCW - Always dangerous with the athletes they have

LB - Look for a down year. No returning QB for team who likes to throw. Defense will have to carry them. Has some decent athletes

Mt Vernon - The schedule makes their record look better then they usually are

Unless Woodbridge has a good off-season of recruiting they will be down this year. Yes they return a few studs but they are losing a ton of talent. The team I saw in the region final was as big and athletic a team as you will find in high school (other than the privates).

Patriot brings back an under-rated QB but their most dynamic players are gone.

Westfield, Centreville, Madison and South County and maybe Robinson should be at the top. If Robinson can be a bit more creative in the offensive scheme they could be a major contender. South Lakes is losing a lot but Coach Taylor will have the boys competing hard.

Bubble teams might be:

TCW - Coach L has done an outstanding job, be on the look out for the Titans
Yorktown - Coach H has a few athletes returning this season and decent lower programs
West Potomac - A few athletes but coaching needs to be stepped up a notch
Hayfield - see West Potomac, Lost Cobbs and no QB on the roster which could mean major problems, cant win the tough games
Lake Braddock - always a bubble team, cant win the big ones, never have

Not on the bubble:
Oakton - interesting odd hire as the new coach, Oakton is totally different than Brentsville District, welcome to the Concorde
Chantilly - nowhere to go but up, might win 3 games, might

We proved it during regular season and our dominance especially showed in the playoffs and it will be a repeat this upcoming season except Woodbridge gets past Bulldogs this time around.

I do think it will come down to Woodbridge or Freedom that will play Westfield for the north championship

Some additional comments:

Centreville The QB is the difference maker in that offense...if he cant make plays, then i agree Centreville will struggle.

Madison will a lot tougher then you think, i don't see them losing to Oakton

South County always has athletes, i don't see anyone beating them in their conference. Can they compete for the region title, we will have to see

Battlefield I hope they have a great year, but they are just to conservative to go far in the playoffs

Robinson Agree no QB limits them, but they will compete for the conference title in a weak conference

West Potomac they always have athletes so they will make it interesting

Woodson surprised SC last year and with key positions being led by seniors this upcoming year, don’t be surprised if they win their conf.

LB- is intriguing because they have the numbers and talent, can coaching staff avoid the slow start that plagued them last year.

Madison loses a lot more than you think and what I saw from JV is not inspiring a lot of confidence, same goes with SL.

CVHS- can they be consistent? They looked dominant against SC then the loss to Champe was baffling.

There is absolutely no way Woodson wins that conference. In fact, that may be the absolute dumbest thing anyone has ever said on this board. The fact you said that discredits anything else you might ever say. They beat SC when Spaulding was playing hurt, and the team basically quit. The coach is a goober who spends way too much time being rah-rah, and not enough time coaching.

LB's coaching staff is full of idiots. Their best QB is going to sit the bench, or be moved to another position, because a 10th graders brother is a walk on at Alabama. They have no ability to identify talent. (but that is true of most FFX coaching staffs).

You may be right about Madison and CVHS, but that Woodson comments cost you any shot at credibility.

I am not sure Woodson will win the conference, but its certainly not impossible. The conference will as weak as ever this year, so anything could happen.

South County - should be the favorite, if they stumble like last year, then its up for grabs.

Robinson - With no QB and very little passing game, makes it tough for them to comeback if they get behind in a game. Any mistakes will cost them

LB - With a young QB potentially the starter, he is going to struggle, can the defense win games? If they want to be competitive, they will have too

Woodson - No superstars, but some pretty good athletes and senior leadership at the skill positions. Is that enough to win the conference? Could be interesting

Fairfax - Young team, not sure they are ready to compete.

West Springfield - Lost a lot last year, may struggle this year

Annandale - I don't see them being very competitive

Look what you wrote,”SoCo played poorly cuz no Dillon Spaulding” guess what when 2018 season there will be no Spaulding which is why WTW has a chance to surprise some folks again. Keep taking them lightly but they had a decent year with first ya HC. They have better QB situation than LB or SoCo & anyone else in their conference & in hs that is huge! Ask Woodbridge or Oscar Smith, 3-4 ints cost them the game vs Westfield. WTW also has good RB and WR’s. Mark my words.

I am no fan of all of the idiot Westfield sycophants on here, but let's be honest...

they have somehow won three 6A titles in a row.

Now, let me also share with you that Westfield is where Fairfax County begins and ends.

Were it not for Westfield, you would have to readily admit that Loudoun County

is MUCH better than Fairfax County, and they are all much smaller in population.

So many examples to show you how the depth of teams in Loudoun crushes Fairfax.

Honestly, Coach Doc sucks, South County sucks, TC can't put it together.

Robinson, Chantilly, and Oakton flat out stink and are crumbling programs.

South Lakes is back to mediocre and Centreville is not athletic enough.

For the 100th time - student membership is completely immaterial in assessing whether a high school should or should not have a good football team. It is only semantics that attempt to put a larger school in a lose-lose situation (i.e. you should win and get no credit for being good) and provide a ready-made excuse should the smaller school lose.

I mean really, a smaller school with a better culture, a better coach, twice as many kids going out for football plays a bigger school with no football culture, a lousy coach, disinterested admin, and half the number of kids going out for football -- the big school should still win because they have more kids in the building? That makes sense.

Loco top 5 is not stronger than FCPS top or PWCS. You have Stone Bridge that’s it, and that coach can’t even get out of his own way to win the big game. Westfield and Centreville won 4 of 5 past championships (should be 5 but we all know how bad Ocean Lakes cheated).

They get away with it because there isn't much of a formal investigation system and proving recruitment is difficult. A lot of programs just worry about themselves and don't have the time to complain about what other schools are doing. Sure, most schools/coaches will talk to parents if approached. But it is suspicious when certain schools get multiple mid-career transfers every year and frequently in positions of need.

Anyway, I would rank them:

Stone Bridge (king of the poachers)
Centreville (have had 7 college-bound transfers in the last 7 years)
Tuscarora (player described being recruited in post game interview last fall)
Woodbridge (impact 1 year transfers)
Freedom (W) (transfers-R-us)
C.D. Hylton (one of the big 3 battling for players in Wbrdge)
Lake Braddock (don't know if things have changed under coach Doc)
Hayfield (poor man's Lake Braddock)
Briar Woods (things may be different now that Pierce is gone)

The all star 7 on 7 teams are a joke and waste of money. They are like the AAU of high school football. Those so called all star coaches are in it to make a buck, third party street agents.

For the typical school based high school team there is some benefit. But being successful in a passing league does not equal wins in the real season.

so he should be a perfect fit at Marshall.

Article on Marshall's new head coach must have been a lib, trying to justify the selection of their new black coach.

Eastern High?

Here is what they did last year under the Black Vince Lombardi...

Four wins and 7 losses. TWO of the wins were against Anacostia, who went 1-9.

Their best win was against the team ranked #11628 in the country by calpreps.com.

(Any team ranked worse than 10,000 is absolutely putrid.)

They lost by the following scores:

70-6
45-0
48-0
32-0
46-0
49-6.

Hell, they even got beat by two touchdowns by Wakefield, who finished as the 51st ranked 5A school in Virginia... out of 55!

Marshall thought they would be progressive and hire a black coach.
Never mind that his record absolutely sucks.

Good luck with that, though, Marshall fans.

Marshall (6A) plays in an all 5A conference because their AD complained and got them to remain there. They played one real football team in the regular season and lost, but yet at 9-1 were a 4 seed and hosted a playoff game? Bring back old conferences and bring back north versus south not the four regions. You shouldn't lose 60-7 in a home playoff game. A Wakefield team that lost to Yorktown by 38 Marshall could only beat by 15???

When goo players in LOCO transfer, or are recruited, the go to the 5A schools. The 5A schools in FCPS are not very attractive for transfers, so they go to the 6A schools.

With the new staff at LB, there will be a vacuum in the near future, so things could change.

That was not meant to be a compliment to Doc and his staff. I think they are complete incompetents and their misuse of talent will soon lead to a huge talent drain on the LB program.

My point was, that talent has to go somewhere, maybe one of the 5A schools will pick up some people who otherwise would have gone to LB.

Reason LOCO is better than FFXCO comes down to better coaching and for some reason they have monstrous linemen. Putting the sole cause on Recruiting/transferring is lazy, for real, how many kids are actually moving because they got recruited to play at SB or Tusky, BR or BW? One maybe 2 kids who’s parents may move because of work or they decided at that point was a good time for them to buy a house. I’d say whatever is in the water (for all the big kids) is more likely the cause than recruiting. Even so, in a sport like football, you have to be such a special talent for 1 player to make a huge impact. Coaching and culture is what it comes down to, plain and simple.

Monstrous lineman. I also have noticed that LoCo teams are always loaded with really big kids. Where do they all come from? Do they feed them that much better in Loudoun?

What is wrong with SOCO program. We have size (bigger than most hs up front) we have the athletes with tons of speed at the skill positions, why are we trending towards mediocrity? We have plenty of kids who play at the next level and we just had one of our own get drafted, and we’ll definitely have another one in maybe 3-4 yrs go to the league (Mr. Spalding). I saw them at 7-7 past weekend and they looked good just like they have years past. So what’s the problem?

Observation from an outsider is that SoCo has had some problems team chemistry and coaches that cannot make any adjustments or game plan very well. They have a solid program and great athletes so sooner or later they must be gonna make another nice playoff run.

Let's all be serious here for a minute. Westfield wins because of the program. It's like Alabama constantly being a top 10 school, year in/year out. Simmons has a system that keeps the team competitive. Any other Norther VA team would have been crushed by the 6A teams from the South. Westfield doesn't have the superior talent. They have the superior coaching staff and system. Simmons forfeits the JV teams to groom the better 9th and 10th graders by bringing them up early and teaching them his O and D. By the time they're juniors, they are hitting on all cylinders. This is why Westfield always seems to be able to fill holes and big losses in talent.

Apparently you're missing a lot. FC is behind only SoCo, LB, Hayfield, and CVille in producing D1 players.

Aziz is one of the best developers of talent in the county. If a kid has even a little bit of talent and is willing to work, Aziz will get the most out of him. Along with the fact they have some pretty good athletes. If they could get some bigger O linemen, they would be able to challenge, or at least compete with, the LoCo 5A teams.

As for being "bottom of the barrel", haven't they won that conference 4 out of the past 5 years, or something like that. Only lost it last year because of the best team Marshall has had in a long time and horrible officiating against Stuart (and by horrible, I mean standard Fairfax County officiating).

I think you need to check your facts, or insights.

I don't think anyone can argue with anything said here. Simmons really does a good job.

Which begs the question, why don't other schools hire his assistants? Most of them have HC experience, and surely have learned so much from being at WF. But schools in the county just keep hiring guys with limited success elsewhere (WTW, Fairfax), no previous success (JEB, Oakton), or previous failure (Lake Braddock). I just don't get it. I'd really like someone to start taking his coaches, so maybe they will lose, and this thread can live on without having to put up with all the Westfield ball lickers.

There’s got to be someone that will challenge WHS this year, Madison, LB, SC, CVHS, Woodbridge, Hylton, Freedom (W), who’s most likely to knock them off?

Most of the coaches live in the Centreville/Chantilly area, have kids going to Westfield and/or otherwise happy in their situation. Head coaches don't make that much money and Simmons takes all the heat off of his assistants. And let's face it, the assistants love having a good shot at being in the championship game every year. Just like Josh McDaniels did in NE last year. He could go to Indy and fight like hell to make the playoffs or stay with the Pats and probably win another couple of SBs and then take over from Belichick when he retires. Simmons has at least two assistants that are in the running to take over after him and Simmons is starting to get up there in years.

Here are few of my thoughts:

I don't see anyone beating Westfield, they are very good at what they do.
They play fundamental football, they don't beat themselves and they are very well coached.

SoCo, Madison, Centreville, SL, all very good teams. but, cant match up to Westfield.

I see Hayfield, Yorktown, LB and a few others as second tier teams, all have decent talent, but nothing close to Westfield and will have a hard time even competing with them.

The only teams that I see who could give Westfield trouble are the PW teams, Woodbridge, Hylton, possibly, Freedom, although, I don't think Freedom will be as good as last year. Both of these teams have athletes all over the field that could cause Westfield problems.

In the end I see Westfield capturing a 4 the straight Div 6 State Title

True. Westfield offensive line was very often outmatched last year - even by bad teams. If they would have had average QB, WRs and RB they would have had a losing record. They have nothing returning and nothing coming up from JV as that line was not very good either. Lucky for them they have some superior talent that will win them games despite the line.

And that's what's been said about Westfield for the past 3 to 4 seasons, yet they still keep winning. They may not have D1 lineman returning but there will be enough big kids to put together a decent OL & DL. Bottom line though, their skill guys probably need less than most other teams to make something happen. Anyone who watched this past season I'm sure will agree. It's not like either side of the ball the line dominated anyone.

Didn’t win when you had Henderson kid - ranked top 10 QB in the nation. Didn’t win with Lamont Atkins, top 10 RB in the nation. Andrew Park top TE. You had a ridiculously talented team this past season and put up measly 2pts against Woodbridge. Good luck not losing to SC or Woodson this year.

"SoCo, Madison, Centreville, SL, all very good teams. but, cant match up to Westfield."

South Lakes was scheme and a number key skill position players that flustered Madison's defense in the playoffs last year. Westfield stepped on SL next game. Centreville split a pair with Madison and Westfield b a r e l y beat Madison on a great defensive play at the end of the game. Centreville lost by a lot to Westfield.

I think this will all come down to line play on both sides of the ball for all these teams and who is returning or bringing up talent. Heirarchy will be Westfield, then Centerville-Madison, then South Lakes. Don't know enough about SoCo to slot them, but the were up and down last year... I think if Westfield has a game that they're "off" against Centreville or Madison they "could" lose.

Stone Bridge doesn't count for playoffs (5A vs. 6A), but that would be an interesting measure if any of these team play them next year.

They have some good teams, just not on the level of Westfield.

I think at the end of the day, it comes down to coaching, again, no coaching staff in this region/state is better then Westfield.

Two reasons: Chinks have moved into the Langley district in mass because it's basically a private school within the public school system. Chinks usually don't make good football players (notwithstanding WF has an Asian QB and the smattering of decent Asian receivers here and there). And Langley is busy grooming the white kids to take over their daddy's businesses, not play sports.

Not totally true. I remember the Langley Saxons popping up in threads every now and them - back when they were reasonably decent. They had a run of 5 years (2K10-2K14) making the playoffs. Heck - I remember they knocked BATTLEFIELD out of the playoffs one year and Hayfield also.

Their program is slumping. New coach (although I guess he'd been around). Fewer kids going out for football. It's probably going to continue to be rough times for Langley football.

If Champe moves to 6A that will spell the end of Westfield's dominance. Champe is a rising program already capable. Handled Centreville last year. Westfield will be on the decline by the time Champe is in 6A. Perfect timing for Champe.

Oakton football sucks because no one takes it seriously enough anymore. Oakton's got the athletes. Seems like more than half of their athletic teams are in the state playoffs this year.

Somebody has been drinking early this morning. Champe was 0-4 vs SB, Tusky & BR how the fuck do you expect them to beat WHS or Woodbridge or OS? Their all-world Rb CG3 is gone so is their QB and several top kids. Expect them to go 6-4 maybe even 5-5 this year. Plus the youth program at Dulles South sucks, which is a pretty good indicator of what kind of upcoming talent you have going into Hs. Gainesville American Pride VYI BRYC & SYA all have strong programs and their respective high schools do well.

1) LB (8-2) tough schedule
2) ROBO (7-3) avg schedule

Previous poster could not have been more correct when talking about Champe sucking this upcoming season and in the near future. They lost a ton of talent and almost all of their contributors were seniors. Despite having athletes all over the field last year, their defense was completely overmatched as the top Loudoun 5A teams scored at will against them. That was with size and speed! Now, take away all of that size and speed and see what happens! Speaks more about how average and unathletic Centreville was (and is!) that Champe smacked them around. And don't tell me that it is because the Loudoun schools know Champe and Centreville didn't. SB, Tusky, and BR all played Champe for the first time last year.

My thoughts on this conference


SOCO (7-3) will be better then last year, but they dont have that go to guy like they had in Spaulding. Remember Woodson upset them last year

Woodson (7-3) is the wild card, they bring a lot of solid players back, who got a lot of playing time last year. Do they have enough to contend with LB and SOCO?

LB (6-4) has a young QB and although he may be pretty good, I think they will struggle as that offense goes through the QB. Do they have enough skill players to take some of the pressure off the young QB?

Robinson (5-5) unless they can throw the ball, they will struggle. I dont think they will contend. They are to 1 dementional

WS (4-6) they have a pretty good QB, just not enough players around him to contend.

FFX (4-6) They will be improved this year, they played a lot of young players last year. Will that be enough to contend?

I think it had more to do with the coaching staff’s hubris and that trickling down to the players, remember Champe was coming up from 4A last year and I honestly think CVHS thought it was going to be a cake walk. Haddock spent Aug telling anyone within ear shot that ‘17 team had the same talent level and reminded him of the state championship team. Boy was he delusional.

Coach seems nice enough but wonder if he knows his top RB is heading to SB & QB is heading to Hayfield. Say hello to 1-9. Gonna miss those Rowley years.

WHS won this tourney for the first time in a while, and looked quite good in doing so. The kids and coaches do not take the 7v7 seriously at all, treating it as a fun event. The number of offensive targets they have I have not seen since the school opened. If they can replace the talent lost in the lines, this team could challenge for one of the best ever at WHS.

Was at the Westfeild 7x7. Westfeild isn't that special. Sure they have some good players but don't get the hype. They are not better than a lot of other teams. They could easily go 7-3 losing to Braddok, Suouth Cuounty and Centerville. they had a lot things go right for them last years. Not likely going to happen again

I saw a couple of their games Sunday, and couldn't disagree more. And I'm not a Westfield guy, first time I ever saw them.

They have good athletes, not great ones, and are very well coached. Their qb knew where he was going with the ball before the snap, based on his pre-snap reads. He wasn't waiting to see what developed. He might go to his second option, but I don't ever remember seeing him go to the third. Their receivers caught the ball quickly and efficiently, then got up field. They didn't do a lot of extra running, they just got to the goal line. Their defense played their responsibilities, rarely bit on the fakes, and did their job. I'm pretty sure they know how to hit and tackle.

As much as I hate to say this on this site, you could tell the level of coaching there was much better than their competition. I have no problem seeing them going undefeated again this year, although LB will give them some problems.

SO what exactly did South County do with all of Spalding's talent, team wise I mean? Westfield very rarely has kids going to top FBS let alone FCS schools. Over the past few years mainly D2 & D3 with the exception of lower FCS caliber schools and service academies. The previous poster was spot on, it's the coaching, it's also the program, they get kids to buy into the team concept, not individual stats. That's probably why they've been able to beat Oscar Smith the past 3 years in the title game. Anyone who watched those games probably would agree there was far more individual talent on the OS sideline but that didn't seem to make a difference.

LB will be very tough this year, maybe the most talented team they have had in a long time.

With Doc and the coaching staff having a full year to work with these players, Westfield, Stone Bridge and the likes, better watch out!

This isn't like the old LB teams, this team stands for Accountability, Toughness -Discipline and Significance. This team is going places.


As been quoted on this board several times, "LB has the Best Coaching Staff in the State" the region will see this year, why everyone is saying that.

I wouldn't day the LB coaching staff is great, but they are not bad. They have a well designed offense, but rely more on the receivers getting open than designing plays that get them open. They seem to be in love with that young qb, and that's going to bite them. He fine throwing into space, but struggles with tight coverage, which he will see a lot of during the season. They actually have a better qb on the team, but he doesn't have a big brother carrying water at Alabama. I'm sure the father had something to do with the decision at qb.

The LB defense will struggle against the precision of an offense like Westfield, and maybe SoCo, if they can keep their route 1 kids from going route 1 every game. Its possible the Robinson offense could cause them trouble, but the Robo coaches have no interest whatsoever in understanding how to defend a passing game, so LB should easily be able to outscore them.

Very true statement. Robinson gets a lot of grief about their offense but in reality their offense is pretty effective. Their defense, particularly their pass defense has let them down the last couple years.

CVHS...? really? lol. Chantilly may beat them this year. This by far the smallest and unathketic team in a long while. They def got worse this year with the graduating seniors and some key players leaving/moving. OL/DL will not be your typical Wildcat lines of old, big & physical.

ROBO is not built to over come deficits. They are a front running team. One holding penalty stalls their drives and if they ever face a dominant front DL forget it, or an athletic one and nothing has seemed to have changed over there. Hopefully they’ll have a 6-4 season and make the playoffs.

I think what you said above is true for about 90% of all HS football teams. Most can’t overcome penalties or dominate defenses. The ones that can generally have an elite prospect or two that make the difference. Westfield is the only area team that’s had consistent success the pst few years without a difference maker on offense and even that’s arguable now with their QB and WR who will play at the next level.

I think this year you will see a changing of the guard in many districts. Other than WHS I can see new district champs. WSHS, YHS, WTW, CHS, MTV, TCW, BHS improve while some of the teams that have enjoyed success the past few years will take a step back, SL, CVHS, LB, SoCo. WHS should count their lucky stars they don’t play 5A this year.

Here are my thoughts


1. Westfield - Do i really need to say anything

2. Woodbridge - Could be the sleeper of the bunch. Always athletic and well coached and will do big things. Keep an eye on them

3. Freedom - Played well all last season except for 1 game. They will be tough again this year. This coach will out work everyone else

4. Centreville - Good athletes good system. QB could be the difference maker

5. Battlefield - Well coached, but too plain vanilla scheme to win the region

6. Hylton - Always has good athletes, but no Ricky Slade this year

7. South County - Lots of athletes, coming off a
down year, look for them to rebound in a big way

8. West Potomac - Good athletes, good coaching staff coming off a down year. They will be tough.

9. Hayfield - If they can keep their players on the field, very athletic, watch out for them

10.South Lakes - Will be tough again this year, how tough will depend on the new QB

Look for some of those teams they beat up on look to extract some measure of revenge and this could be the year they do it.

Enrollment is slumping. People with kids want to live closer in (enrollments are up at Yorktown, McLean, Marshall) and there are lots of rich parents the Langley district sending their kids to privates.

Plus more Asian kids at LHS, and higher income parents are more likely to keep their kids from playing football due to CTE concerns. They'll let the beefy white kids elsewhere give themselves concussions and watch their own kids get scholarships for golf, soccer or lacrosse.

SadSaxon should stop whining and making excuses. Plenty of schools deal with the same issue you described. Marshall has seem to come back from the dead, we’ll see if the HC can keep it going or will the 60-7 beat down from the playoff game have a lingering effect. Maybe if they played tougher regular season games it would help prepare them for post season, scheduling 2A schools definitely won’t help with that.

And your dumb comment/point is? Proximity has nothing to do with schedule. GMHS is class 2 you dumb fuck, way below GCM class 6, they shouldn’t be playing each other even if they are so close to each (as closely related as your mother and father are). AD’s at the schools booked that one.

Should’ve went with that statement instead of mentioning how close they are to each other. That logic did nothing to help them cuz they got thoroughly embarrassed by Patriot 60-7. Maybe next time schedule teams that will help prepare you for playoffs regardless of seeding.

You couldn’t do it with Mensah & Alston & Miles, what makes you think you’ll come remotely close to the success without them? Good luck beating Yorktown. Your soft schedule does not prepare you for the playoffs. You all play one decent team, CVHS. 7-3 and out in 2nd rd of playoffs.

When PWCPS actually wins something we'll talk. Until then it's like LCPS crowing about a some regular season wins and then not getting it done in the playoffs. Bottom line is that Westfield and Centreville have won a 4 state championships since anyone from either PWCPS or LCPS has.

If you can’t see the shift in talent you are a blind FCPS homer only a matter of time before PWCPS team breaks through. I don’t see WHS being able to contain a WBridge team this year and CVHS will be lucky to finish 3rd in their own district. Lucky playoffs are set up the way they are, PWC teams beat and knock each other out, otherwise put them in the pool wit FCPS and be a different story.

You must suffer from short term memory loss, did you forget the but whooping Vikings out down on you guys? You could see the fear as you all got off the school bus. Heard halftime players and coaches has to change their poopie drawers. 20-2, yeah that was a close game alright.

Plausible explanations why the top teams in PW have gotten better... and why the middling and bottom teams have become a shell of their former selves. Same for Loudoun. Fairfax not as much but still plenty of shenanigans and transfers for no other reason than to play sports.

Friends with coaches in all three local counties. Follow me, please...if you can.

Northern Virginia football is now a known commodity. I am not just talking about players like Jonathan Allen or Trace McSorley.

The top five teams in each county all have scholarship players and these kids have been doing well at the next level. A lot of them. Lineman, running backs, safeties - all positions. Success breeds more and more of it.

If you have a college-type kid at the bottom feeders, you are going to be "recruited" to come to schools that compete in the playoffs and regionals - where they get noticed. It is next to impossible to get a coach to look at a kid from places like Park View, Annandale, and Garfield.

These real good kids all get to know each other at the camps that they all go to. Football is now just about a year-round sport. These kids buddy up and push their talented new friends to join them. Plus, a lot of parents drink the Kool-Aid and move or, worse still, lie about their address.

Prince William and Loudoun each have four schools that would regularly beat the pants off of all the Fairfax schools (except for Westfield, which has an amazing number of accomplished coaches on their staff) because the talent has consolidated. Programs in Fairfax like Robinson and Oakton have become average. More of the talent drain is to come, because VHSL does little to prevent it.

I do enjoy it, however, when I see parents at a place like Stone Bridge pony up booster money every year, hoping to gain the good graces of the coaching staff, only to see their kid relegated to the bench for their senior seasons when some transfer waltzes in and takes their spot.

Very difficult to refute anything hear that I have had to say...

I agree with the bulk of your analysis. And judging by the number of repeat state champions across all classifications the consolidation of top players seems to be widespread. Will say that you rarely ever see a kid transfer to Westfield after they are already in high school. What happens before that who knows but their players almost exclusively spend four years with the program.

I don’t recall any transfers in recent memory that made a significant contribution for the Bulldogs. Their success has been on the coaching staffs ability to adapt to their personnel. Even with all their success hey don’t have kids moving into their area or transferring. They are lucky the kids who do come play are hard workers & are “coachable”.

Now some of those other areas esp LOCO is like the Wild Wild West, where their philosophy is “if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying” & “bend but don’t break” the rules philosophy. They seem to poach each other’s kids and bench players.

It's happening in Prince William and some in Fairfax County too. Nothing like paying your dues for 3 years and then someone transfers in your senior year and takes your spot. Really helps team spirit and camaraderie among the players.

Speaking of transfers, is the Oakton transfer to Stone Bridge expected to be the lead back (Jared Cole)? He's a good player, albeit not large. His parents are putting a lot of faith in those coaches by selling their house in Fox Mill and moving to Ashburn.

Hope it works out for the young man.

No way he is this year. They have a returning RB with size that is more their prototypical back. 6,1” 205lbs. JC will be change of pace and work out the slot.
PWCS with their lax rules regarding boundaries, it’s a wonder they haven’t won or even made it to states more than they have (last time being 2010?).

Yes, not just Rowley, virtually the entire coaching staff from Oakton. Including his sidekick, John Glufling.

Until Chantilly starts winning state titles like Westfield, I doubt anyone will be trolling Chantilly.

CYA, SYA and SC Youth have, in the past, when good at Youth, passed it on to Centerville, Chantilly, and South County HS's. Even BRYC passed it on to Robinson and Lake Braddock. Once even to Woodson where the band is more important.

Madison is going to be just fine. Probably about the same results as last year 7-3 to 8-2. 1 or 2 playoff wins - just depends on how the team gels. They have players.

James Madison

2017 yeah...South Lakes...that sucked...scheme and those three guys...did it in 2016 during the season...coaching staff didn't prepare them.

2016 9-1 bad playoffs??? ...winning conference, two playoff games and staying even with eventual state champion Westfield thru halftime in the north regional final...pretty good

2015 9-1 bad playoffs...yeah...give you that one, open round loss to Chantilly(?) in the playoffs...like that last time they were any good.

Like the man said, 7-3/8-2 this year. JMHS has basically the same schedule as last year with home/away switched, so Westfield, Stone Bridge, WestPo, SoCo, Cville all at home this time around. If they do 7-3 or better it is good year.

I was reviewing the highlights of the Madison vs WHS game & it looks like WHS had some kind of pick play off the left side for an easy long bomb for the difference maker TD. After looking at the WHS vs O. Smith game highlights, it looks like a similar play but with #2 & #3 players swapping roles.

In fact many of the plays were the same with similar results between both WHS playoff games..

But the bigger take away that I saw was that the WHS opponents had success running but decided to pass too much & gave precious turnovers TO WHS. without Madison's & O. Smith's sloppy play in 2017, I think their wouldn't have been a 3peat. Heck O. Smith had 4 turnovers & still had a chance to tie that game on the last play!!!

WHS has problems with a SB type of ground & pound game. That will be their weakness again this year, too. Keep the ball for a longer period of time against them & they'll wear down.

Stone Bridge and Robinson have given Westfield as much trouble as anyone the past few years. Robinson probably should have beaten us the last two times we played them, but we pulled out some unlikely victories given the way the games played out. We defend the spread offense well. Teams that slam it at us can control the ball and the flow of the game, which hurts our offense. I think that’s how you beat Westfield. We just haven’t ran into those teams in the playoffs.
Some will say Centreville does the same stuff, but they are much more of a finesse football team than the other two.

Westfield is very good with that pick play. And they know it will not get called. HS football in the area has really resisted adding the extra official most states have added because of the increase in passing. With only one official deep, WHS can disguise the pick and it never gets called. It is much clearer if you watch them play 7 on 7. Same thing happens in regular games, but too many bodies close to the line for the BJ to see it.

Why don't you become a volunteer ref? Maybe they resist an extra official because they don't have enough the way it is. There is a shortage of officials now - adding another ref would only compound the problem.

The difference between this year and probably the past 5-6 years is that Westfield can now rely on its offense to win. They have all their skill players back from last year. The 7 on 7 they had they ran shotgun pretty much the entire tournament, which they won. Even more impressive is their QB called ALL of his own plays. Been watching WF football since Sean Glennon and Eddie Royal were youngsters. Been a long time since they had a team that has the ability on offense to put points on the board. They'll be good on defense as well but make no mistake, I think it will be there offense that carries them this year.

If you were reviewing the film then you probably also saw Westfield, with an easy chance to put the game away, blow it late. Their run game on the final offensive series ran the ball threw Madison's D. For some inexplicable reason with 3rd and about 1 they tried a pitch play, WF's RB is effective north and south. He gets dropped for a loss and WF turns the ball back to Madison. There was a minute, maybe less at that point, just poor play calling.

If you watched the Oscar Smith film then you saw that Oscar Smith had to pass because, as with the previous 2 games against Smith, WF had the lead for the better part of the game. Plus, don't forget that WF had multiple turnovers in this game, the key one late that turned the ball over to Smith so they had a chance to win. It was pretty similar to the circumstance above but the QB for WF fumbled when the game was in hand. Smith could not stop WF's run game.

It was a close call time-wise. Westfield had a 3rd and 3 with 33 seconds left in the game at their own 49 yard line. 25 second play clock. A kneel down would only run about 2-3 seconds off. So theoretically you could have had a 4th down play that would have needed to be run. A kneeldown would instantly stop the clock and the ball would turn over on downs giving OS at least one play.

What about all this discipline coach Doc tells the parents, yet LB has been in a fight at every 7v7 tournament they have entered. I guess the only thing this staffs cares about is being 5 minutes early for practice.

If they are 1 and done in the playoffs this year, look for changes next year

I will say the one flaw I see in Westfield's game is their 4th quarter play calling. The last two year's they let OS back in the game because of bone headed calls. Yes they had to run a play last year, if they took a knee the refs were not going to be in a hurry to spot the ball game would have been over. Worst case take a snap on 4th down take a few steps backwards and kneel. I get running the ball up the middle by the time you unpile bodies game over. But it almost seemed they were trying to get a first down which they didn't need.

In 2016 they called a WR pass to the QB in the 4th quarter that let OS back in after INT. Just dumbfounded. They like rolling the dice in the state championship game, I'm surprised it hasn't bitten them yet.

No one is perfect. Simmons spent 4 years getting bashed for being too conservative in playcalling. He's adjusted just a tad the last three seasons. Just a very small tad. Not all the gambles work out. The WR pass last fall that ended up being intercepted didn't work out very well either. But if it had no one would have complained.

Assuming you’re talking about Fairfax HS, has to be someone on staff, real late in the game to interview anyone especially with a new Peincipal too. It sucks for the kids for HC to bail on them like that but DSA @ LB is definitely better gig than HC & FHS.

Sounds like coaching staff and the players are trying to do a faux tough guy act to show they aren’t afraid of predominantly black teams & shake off the embarrassing defeat against Woodbridge last year. Expect 7-3 maybe even 6-4 reg season and bounced out 2nd rd again.

That's because Doc will have this team ready to play this year. He and the staff now have a full year under the belt and you can see this team coming together everyday. Gone are the days of undisciplined players doing what they want, every member is accountable and that will equal more wins then ever before.

Most people on this board thought LB should be rated in the top 3.

This may be the best team LB has had in a long times. Toughness, Discipline, Significance and family are all traits on this team. There is a new sheriff in town, so everyone better watch out.

Voted "The best staff in the state"

Better check your Website again, I believe it's VHSL Reference & they post rankings based off historical weighted averages & from analysis algorithms. VHSL Reference has nothing to do with the VHSL Foundation.

The idea is tbased on how your team has performed in the past can predict it's future tendencies. The statistics cannot account for injuries, transfers or coaching changes, but it has been a fairly good predictor.

It's VHSL Reference - a private website. No affiliation with the VHSL.

Their rankings are strictly computer algorithms similar to Calpreps etc. They are actually a pretty accurate assessment for the most part - more accurate in than Calpreps in my opinion.

Westfield is the only VHSL school with a winning record against top 1000 ranked Calpreps teams (18-17). Compare to Stone Bridge (8-16) or Oscar Smith (11-20). Salem, Bird, Phoebus, H Springs near .500.

Speaking of which, how they looking for the upcoming year? Things have been a lot quieter from their camp compared to last year when you had some posters and Coaches spouting off how that team looked as good as the state championship teams of a few years ago.

No, Coach Haddock did compare last year's team with the 2013/2014 teams. In the preseason. Repeatedly. Thought it was irrational exuberance. A good team but obviously not at that level.

They should have another solid year this fall. Sure they lost a few key players but they are returning the bulk of both offensive and defensive starters. With Egbers, Horner, Wright, Maxwell etc. they will be good. Will have a shot at beating anyone they play.

Some teams just think they are above the rules. You would think with all the bad PR the school has received in past year and a half, they wouldn't allow anything that's even borderline close to bending rules.

This coach is not the right coach for this program, he is more of the cheerleader type. He would be better suited at a Woodson, Annandale or Fairfax.

If you look at last year, they had no signature wins. All the wins were against the weaker teams.
They beat SoCO who had a down year yet lost to West Potomac, who had a down year.
Stone Bridge killed them, first time SB ever beat a LB team. Westfield beat them easily. Woodbridge embarrassed them in the playoffs.


I think the program will be evaluated ay the end of the season, if the same trend is there, then I believe a change will be made. The principal is an ex football coach and understands how a program needs to be built to compete for state championships each year






If this staff doesn't win with all the talent they have again this year, they will be out.

I know this is hoping for a lot but do you guys think that the Westfield DeMatha scrimmage will be more interesting than normal? I don't want to get caught in this Westfield hype too earlier in the year but they are returning probably their most skill position starters ever and have quite a few players (Kim, Asante, Morin) that could probably fare pretty well in private school ball.

You forgot a couple kids like Woodley, McLean, Clancy, and Hinton. Only problem for Westfield this year is the lack of players and size on both the OL & DL. They do have many skill position players returning but will struggle if they can't keep Kim upright or open holes for the running game.

They will do well this year but would be a stretch to think they can win 4 in a row without size, numbers, & strength in the trenches. I think their scrimmages with Dematha, St. Johns, & Quince Orchard will show how they might struggle this year with physical opponents.

Guess we shall see......

Agree, if they lose a game this year, it will be against a team that can grind out a physical running game plan. They have the athletes and game plan to stop the spread offenses. Teams who get greedy usually pay for it with turnovers against them. Run against Westfield until they consistently stop it. Then run some more! Success will come in the last 3rd of the game!

Absolutely. They don't have the bodies to stop the run. They really didn't last year either but no one would play an old school running game against them. Stone Bridge and Briar Woods figured that out 2 years ago.

The coach should absolutely be suspended for at least 1 game.

This coach always talks about integrity accountability, well its time for him to step up and accept his responsibility and set the example that you are always preaching.

Coaches that break the rules should have to pay the price.

As someone who has watched the Westfield program as a jealous dad in the opposing stands for 10 years, all I can say is they are the prohibitive favorite to win their 4th title in a row until proven otherwise. While perhaps their OL and DL will have some challenges in the early going, I have no doubt that come playoff time, they will be functioning as a well-oiled machine. They are the gold standard.

What other games are “must see” that didn’t make the list?


http://www.ultimaterecruit.com/nova-football/vhsl-schedule-must-see-703/Here’s a short list of games you won’t want to miss this fall
by Andy Hilton, recruitNoVA

The VHSL schedule just came out a couple of days ago and we want to take the opportunity to highlight as many top games as we can so that you can mark your calendar.

We’re bound to miss a few. We’re going to include the obvious ones and we might leave off some that you think should be included. Half of Westfield’s games might be called rivalry games considering that the Bulldogs have won the Class 6 State Championship three years in a row. Every team has Westfield circled on their schedule.

The same could be said for most of the teams who have a habit of winning a lot.

So, here we go. These are the games you won’t want to miss on this fall’s VHSL schedule for the 703 region. We’re splitting up Northern Virginia and providing a second article that will focus on the 540 region/southern section of our NoVA coverage. That region includes Stafford and Fredericksburg, south to the Richmond metro.

Westfield at Lake Braddock (8/24/18)

Westfield doesn’t get an easy opener as they hit the road in the defense of their third consecutive Class 6 state title. In their state championship season of 2015, Westfield met Lake Braddock in the playoffs and dismantled them by a score of 31-7. Last year, in the season opener, Westfield prevailed by a score of 28-10. This out-of-district game hasn’t been too good for the Bruins. Lake Braddock has lost three in a row and hasn’t beaten the Bulldogs since the 2014 regular season when they managed a 36-23 win in the fourth game of that season. Westfield avenged that loss with a playoff win against the Bruins later that season. Lake Braddock’s 12-game season in 2017 was the shortest season in the past five years. From 2013-2016, Lake Braddock lost in their 13th game of the season.

Broad Run at Tuscarora (8/31/18)

Broad Run has to consider themselves title contenders once again this year. The Spartans won back-to-back state titles in 2008 and 2009, and have been contenders almost every year since. They’ve averaged nine wins every season for the past five years, but have fallen short of the state championship game every season. In 2017, the Spartans dusted Tuscarora 28-12 in week two, but couldn’t break through in the second round of the playoffs, losing 14-12. In 2016, Broad Run had the Huskies’ number, beating them in the season finale and then turning around and topping them again in the first round of the playoffs. Coach Matt Griffis has his son back for his junior season at quarterback. Mitch Griffis committed to play his college ball for Wake Forest over the summer.

John Champe at Centreville (8/31/18)

Both of these teams are now relegated to being teams “on the cusp”. Centreville went 15-0 in a state championship season in 2013. John Champe is close to averaging eight wins a season in the past four years. Because of a four-win season in 2015, Centreville’s win per season average isn’t much better. Both teams come into the 2018 season with something to prove. In 2017, Centreville won easily by a score of 35-21. Last year’s game was the first ever game between the two programs. A win here is a step in the right direction for the victor.

C.D. Hylton at Colonial Forge (9/14/2018)

Colonial Forge is the 540 area code, but that doesn’t keep this from being a great rivalry. Bill Brown is no longer the head coach at Forge as his son John Brown steps in. Bill is still on the staff and he was a long time coach at Hylton. Last year, the Bulldogs and Eagles went toe to toe in a game that went into overtime. Kicker Jadon Redding put the Eagles ahead with a field goal, and the Eagles defense stuffed three Ricky Slade rushing attempts, then blocked a field goal in order to pull out a 37-34 road win. You can bet Hylton will bring the house in this fall’s rematch. Colonial Forge won 13 straight in 2017 before falling in the state semifinal to Oscar Smith.

South Lakes at Centreville (9/21/18)

South Lakes would have had a perfect regular season record in 2017 if it weren’t for Centreville. The Wildcats are always a problem for the Seahawks. In the last nine meetings, Centreville has won eight times. The 2017 game was a 31-13 win for Centreville. The 2016 playoffs provided the only recent win for South Lakes, and that was a 22-20 nail biter. South Lakes is 23-4 over the past two seasons. The Centreville game will be a measuring stick for both programs. Centreville is working to get back to the State Championship game for the first time since 2014.

C.D. Hylton at Freedom (PW) (9/28/18)

Prince William County is loaded with talented football teams. Hylton had a hangover from their overtime loss to Colonial Forge in the week prior to this match up last year. Freedom managed to knock the Bulldogs on their heels enough to pull out a 48-42 win in the 2017 regular season. C.D. Hylton got payback in the playoffs and ended Freedom’s perfect season with a decisive 45-28 win. In the second game of the playoffs. Ricky Slade is gone, but the cupboard isn’t bare at Hylton. Freedom comes into the season with plenty of firepower as well.

Westfield at Patriot (9/28/18)

The Patriot Pioneers could argue that a State Championship might have been theirs in 2017 if it weren’t for Westfield. Patriot is one of the teams that will certainly see a target on the chest of the Bulldogs. Mid-season in 2017, Westfield downed Patriot by a score of 46-33. Westfield had their number in the playoffs as well, winning that game 35-6 to end the Pioneers’ season. Colonial Forge beat Patriot in the 2017 season opener, but it was Westfield that did them in. Patriot improved from a 7-4 record in 2016 to 9-3 in 2017. Another step forward could put them closer to the Class 6 State Championship game, but Westfield would most certainly be in the way. Patriot High School opened in 2012 and has only played Westfield twice. Both games came last year and both were losses.

Freedom (PW) at Woodbridge (10/12/18)

Both teams went deep into the playoffs in 2017. Woodbridge lost in the state semifinal to Westfield and finished the season 12-2. Their only other loss was to Freedom, and that was a 41-14 thumping that was uncharacteristic of the Vikings’ season. Freedom reeled off 11 straight wins in 2017 and saw that perfect record come to a halt when Hylton knocked them off in the second round of the Class 6 playoffs. Both Freedom and Woodbridge fell short in 2017 considering that Westfield navigated the playoff minefield that they couldn’t.

Tuscarora at Stone Bridge (10/19/18)

These two Class 5 powers are consistently butting heads. In 2018, the Huskies knocked Stone Bridge out of the playoffs with a gut-wrenching 28-27 win in the Region Final. That win avenged a 14-13 regular season win by Stone Bridge. In 2016, Tuscarora was down and was easily beaten by the Bulldogs, but in 2015, the two teams traded the favor again. Few current players on either team were involved in the 2015 battles, but in that year, Tuscarora won the regular season meeting 42-19, only to be knocked off in the playoffs in a shootout, 54-41. Tuscarora made it all the way to the state title game in 2017, and this year it will be up to former assistant coach Brandon Wheelbarger to lead them to the promised land for a second year in a row. These two Potomac District teams seem destined to play each other twice again this year.

Stone Bridge at Broad Run (11/2/18)

If everything falls into place, both of these teams could be undefeated heading into this season finale. That’s how it was in 2017. Broad Run was 9-0 last year and lost this one by a score of 21-13. Stone Bridge kept their undefeated regular season, only to lose to Tuscarora in the playoffs. Stone Bridge will rely on Army commit Nick Mell and QB Mason Tatum as returning seniors to lead them after losing a significant group of senior leaders that included Jack Kosko (Notre Dame College), Bradley Block (Glenville State), Joey Nameth (William and Mary) and Daniel Thompson (Towson).

this just might be an off-year for Westfield. They had a pretty crappy JV team last year so there's not a lot of talent coming up that wasn't already brought up (Simmons always picks the cream of the JV team clean to keep the dynamo of the varsity team going). But the Bulldogs have starters returning to key positions on offense, including their starting QB (only a junior this year), so they might tough it out an win another one this year.

Next year, Westfield will be brutal. Their freshmen team last year was undefeated and pretty much destroyed most of the teams they played. Great skill position players coming up to feed the varsity machine over the next two years from the class of 21. As long as they can maintain a decent O-line, they'll be a force for the next 3 years.

Fear the Bulldog, for he casts his shadow over the rest of the state's programs.

Wasn’t last year supposed to be the “down” year for WHS? How did that turn out.
Now they may not win it all this year but there is a huge difference between a “down” year versus not getting their 4-peat. Really believe you have to be lucky as you are good to win a championship.

No, this will not be an off year. There are unanswered questions for sure (OL/DL), but got a QB, RB and top 2 WR with D1 offers. Plus solid additional depth at RB and WR. Probably won't be a dominant physical team but weren't last year either. Just good enough to outscore opponents as needed. I expect 10-0. But there will no doubt be close calls and who knows - might be an upset or two if luck falls the wrong way. We'll find out how critical Cockrill was in shoring up that defense. Hope a kicker emerges this year.

That's what I was saying. I'm not saying they're going to suck. Just might not compete for the championship this year. Simmon's program pretty much guarantees a good team. But there are some gaps this year that might cost them a couple of games that they would pull out in the previous years. Would love to see a 6-peat, but not mortgaging the house on it.

Has there ever been a year that has had so many late season coaching changes like this summer has had? Coach Taylor of SL is new HC at Fairfax HS. Kind of curious move on his part if you ask me. It’s like he’s going to a powerhouse school with potential. Guess he saw writing on the wall once Mensah & Alston left that they were going to be bad, all those teams they beat up on past couple of years will be lining up for some paybacks this year.

Indian River is loading up to make run in 5A. But the transfer QB from Smith was only a sophomore last year & was prone to turnovers. He had 4 against Westfield. He holds the ball too long but he's a dangerous runner.

Smith still has a lot of talent with about 14 Seniors for 2018. Underclassmen talent coming up as usual. I still expect Smith to be in the Regional Finals playing the winner between Manchester vs Colonial Forge. I don't see the 6A South Regional winner being undefeated in 2018.

Seems like everyone wants to hand the 6A North Region to Westfield but my gut tells me there'll be a stout defense combined with the power game that'll stop the Bulldogs in 2018. If not then it'll be another great game to watch @ Hampton U. In December!

We all know Fapponi reads these Boards, I gave him the game plan to beating Westfield last year when I laid it out on this Very Board how Briar Woods utilized Ben Maffee to Take down the vaunted Bulldogs the Prior Year. Fapponi studied that Film and sure enough it was as if Maffe was reincarnated in Spaulding as The Wildcat Served the Stallion well inside the Redzone..Spaulding almost duplicated Maffes performance, scoring 4TD's (Maffe 5)..once again though Fapponi demonstrated his ineptness as during his premature celebration, he Overlooked one of the most basic tenets of Football, he sent his kicking team out with 10 players and No One bothered to count them as He thought he had chopped the head off the Mighty Giant...

Every year and every team is different so your comments are pure nonsense. Not to mention not every team has a Spaulding or Maffe on them. The circumstances behind how those two games played out were not even similar. Other than both went to OT. Just keep in mind, it's hard to play a patient running game when you are down by a couple of TDs.

Brandon Wheelbarger (Tusarora): "we are GREAT. bow down to us. we have the best players. the best coaches. when we walk past avert your gaze. we will win another state championship (almost) for sure."

Jason Eldridge (West Springfield): "our best player is a fine arts major who misses practices for opera rehearsals. we have to practice in construction zones. and people wonder why we suck"

Matt Griffis (Broad Run): [no show] can't be seen at same event as someone from Stone Bridge or Tuscaroaaa. can't stand those guys.

Once a cheater. Always a cheater.

The Marrietta (Ga.) High School football team led by former Oscar Smith coach Richard Morgan this week was ordered to forfeit all eight of its victories during the 2017 season for using two ineligible players...

In Class 5, Broad Run, Stone Bridge and Tuscarora. That's it. Going to be three very good teams. Tusky will be hurt by coaching change. Broad Run doesn't have the depth that Stone Bridge has. Stone Bridge is loaded again.

In Class 6, Westfield and Woodbridge early favorites. But I view this as being much more open - there could be surprises. Maybe Patriot. Teams like Battlefield, Centreville, Madison, Lake Braddock, Freedom, Hylton, South Lakes and maybe even Stonewall have a chance if everything gels perfectly and the coaching is good. I don't think Westfield can live up to the hype this season...

I think it’s safe to take SL out of that equation, things were going to be tough post-Alston/Mensah era but throw in the HC bouncing to Fairfax, they will be lucky to make playoffs. Sleeper treat is Woodson. Loaded with solid seniors. Also Hayfield will be better.

Woodson will be 5-5 with an easy schedule. Average players, average coaching. Braddock, Soco, Robo will be better than them. They will beat WS and FFX.
Hayfield lost some good players, but hard to know who they recruited in the off-season.

Stone Bridge loaded again? They lost a lot. Of course they have some talent returning, but doesn't seem as much as they have in the past. Is anyone aware of the actual kids they have recruited? I know Oakton and Rock Ridge are two schools. Who else left their school for Stone Bridge?

And also, does anyone know if coaches that have domestic assaults or have been dismissed or asked to leave other schools can still continue to coach?

Woodson will run into trouble this season after their coach has his first meltdown. Should come about 3 mins into the second quarter of their first game. The AD has already had to reprimand him for some of his in game antics, but the guy has no control and will lose it again pretty quickly.

I am hearing rumblings from some Robo srs they are not happy with some coaching choices. Most feel the best qb on the team is designated to be a back up, while the HC is busy slobbering on a who has limited accuracy. They will be 6-4 at best, but could slip down to the 2-3 win category.

FFX new HC is a pretty sharp guy, but he has limited talent and assistant coaches. Should be much better next year.

Hayfield always recruits well, if the Henderson can just keep them out of jail they should be fine.

Run, run, run the ball. The Bulldogs may not have the size to stop y'all. They can't score if they don't have the ball. Just watch for the ball stripping from them.

I didn't see the game but the highlight film looked a lot like the O. Smith game. Westfield scored on that same inside trap play & they intercepted when the offense was a bit too greedy. Wait until they are in single cover and are expecting the run play! Use motion to force them to reveal there covers.

Cannot argue that point. What opponents will need to consider is can they outscore WF this year? I have seen all of the WF teams, and this one is probably one of the top offensive teams, if not the best offensively, they have ever had. And they have had some formidable offensive teams, like 2003, 2006, 2007. I hate to see games won 49-42 or 45-38, since defense wins championships. But if WF's defense solidifies, it is going to be awfully difficult for anyone to outscore them this year.

How good is their RB? Tyler Johnson. He's little but has speed and quickness and is getting some D1 looks. Can he be the premier RB in NOVA this season? Personally I think Jordan Wright at Centreville is going to have a breakout season and put Centreville back into the state playoffs.

Trying to be objective here... LB also lost its entire coaching staff and had only 4 weeks of practice, no summer work outs, nor conditioning.

That said, LB also hung in with Westfield until the end. Stone Bridge and West Potomac were other animals. Then they came back and spanked Yorktown and the rest until Woodbridge.

Other's mention LB's talent from last year versus this year. We did lose a lot, especially at QB and the DEs. But the rest remained. Where we lost talent we compensate in other areas.

Tale of the tape will be that first game at home against Westfield to see how much has changed from last year with a full off season of prep.

Dont make excuse for LB:


We lost the entire staff because the new coach decided to bring in all new people, by choice.
We had spring workouts, 7v7 and conditioning
West Potomac we were out coached by a better prepared staff
Westfield, Stone Bridge and Woodbridge were all better teams
We beat the teams we were supposed to beat
Talent wise at QB Edwards will be good, but Darcy and Methany carried the offense. I dont see him being able to do that this year.

What happened to the kid who was QB at Hayfield last season? The sophomore who transferred in from Stafford or somewhere? Where did he land this season? This season the Hawks seem to be loaded with transfers. They should be more dangerous than last season if they can stay healthy and put a line together. They need to win the tough games not just the ones they are expected to win. They have an incredibly weak schedule so 8-2 is possible.

I saw SoCo inter squad today and they looked sharp for only having a week of practice. Very uptempo offense, did all special teams today and looked like a somewhat polished team.

So, if the word is out that Westfield doesn't have their usual size in their OL/DL, what will be their strategy to protect N.Kim? As a slender but quick QB, he could get smacked around pretty good. I think they'll concentrate on misdirection and screen passes. They already have a reliable counter trap play they've used to score against their toughest opponents.

In the passing game, they'll have to get rid of the ball quickly. So, expect more of a West coast, short & quick passes.

The the talk of a small Westfield OL is a bit premature. Stopped by their scrimmage for a few minutes on Friday and they had at least two or three OL that looked to be well over 250. DL another story.

Speaking of CVHS, Haddock said his current QB has probably the best arm he’s ever had while at CVHS, will he take advantage of it and open it up more and be more balanced? Or will he waste that talent because the QB arms after this season are not good. It will be a while before he has someone unless a transfer comes in.

You may be right...

On Tuesday, Park View High School in Sterling announced it was canceling its football season due to lack of players on the team.

To make matters worse, Manassas Park High School announced Tuesday that they might also have to cancel their season.

Robo coach doesn't seem to understand a strong arm doesn't mean an accurate arm. Or that one of those is more important than the others. Most Sr's on that team feel their best QB is at another position. Good luck, maybe 6-4 will make the playoffs this year.

As a casual observer I would say accuracy for high school QBs is a big issue here in Nova. I see kids wide open all the time. The play works but the QBs just can't get the ball where it needs to be. And then when they do the receiver drops it. I'd take accuracy over arm strength every day of the week.

Didn't stay for the entire scrimmage but Stjohns dominated as one would expect. Cadet's scored TD or FG on every drive. Don't think Buldogs socred. Westfiel offense was able to move the ball a little and get some first downs but Stjohns completely controlld line of scrimmage on both sides of ball and had awesome team speed at every position. there is a reason Cadet's are nationally ranked in top 10.

Westfield did not do as badly as being pointed out. First it’s a scrimmage. WHS is working on finding where some pieces will fit, they had a couple of Srs out for an injury so they were trying different kids. Second, these private school kids, majority of them are re-class. So you have kids that are not only the top kids in there position but they are older and physically more mature than any public Hs team. Third if you saw the scrimmage WHS made STJ work on some long drives which is is a good sign. Conversely WHS O managed to move the ball between the 20-20 and STJ has multiple pass inter/def holding penalties where the db just grabbed and drug the WR down if not they would have been scored on. Lastly play calling, if it were a real game on 4th and 2”, believe Simmons will call qb keeper or FB dive and pick up that first down and keep the drive alive and take 4 more shots at the end zone but it’s a scrimmage it was end of the 3rd qtr and he just wanted to get the starters off healthy and get the back ups in. I’m not predicting a 4peat, this season will be a more challenging one and could see them drop a game or in the regular season but they are far from being 0-10 or even missing playoffs.

You have a point, if WHS will scrimmage top teams in the WCAC they certainly have nothing to worry about once the season starts, they won’t face another team with near the size of the behemoths that are on STJ or DeMatha also the overall team speed that they have.

I don’t know why more teams don’t do what WHS, instead the “top” teams line up scrimmage against terrible teams, proves nothing. You don’t “win” scrimmages you use it as a tool to get better and fix things. Guess SOCO was too scared to go up against STJ without Spaulding and backed out. Kudos to Bulldogs for stepping up. Didnt see LB taking on that challenge which is why they will go 6-4 and get thrashed by Woodbridge again in the 2nd rd of playoffs.

If Westfield sucked against St John's, just say it.... 0-38 says that the OL/DL was dominated and St John's backed off to get a look at various backups before full squad #2's we're put in. Just be glad no one got hurt & you can look forward to meeting DaMatha this week.

I am a special kind of stupid but Westfield STILL got spanked by a St John's team that obviously backed off after their 3rd series & still scored at will. If the Bulldogs really want to guage how things are going in the preseason, they need to schedule Colonial Forge or Highland Springs instead of WCAC teams.

I suspect the Bulldogs are in for a big letdown in 2018. Because I'm stupid, I predict a 5-5 recrd if their opponents realize that running the ball relentlessly, they'll wear down the defensive line and even their DB's will begin to slow up.

Centreville is licking their chops and they can't wait to to play Westfield in 2018. Madison may never have to pass the ball against them!

I'm stupid but the gig is OVER for Westfield! You'll still beat teams that run the spread Offense but who still does that effectively?

You’re right, you are a special kind of stupid, must be a coach at CVHS. Look at all the talent you’ve squandered over the years. Only thing Cville will be licking are the Bulldogs nuts. Take off your homer glasses, your o-line is not
imposing looking at all.

Totally a waste of time and effort. If the school district doesn't have written documents which proves recruiting, or kids are caught living outside the school boundaries, nothing will happen.

You definitely are a homer coach or player for one of WF’s rivals. The last few years the mantra is WF is going to have a down season. News for you, it hasn’t happened. They have decent size on the lines, not like the last few years but serviceable. What WF has that you seem to miss is an offense that can pretty much score on any team they’ll face in the regular season this year.

Westfield can't score if they don't have the ball. And they won't have the ball if they can't stop the run....With an undersized OL, the Bulldogs will only be able to get off the quick, short passes. Time to start undercutting those routes & getting the pic sixes.

Like I said before, C'ville, Madison and even SoCo are ready to pounce.

Westfield has a good system but without the big boys up front, it's going to be a frustrating season in Chantilly. Sorry, but it's been a nice run.

For those ready to proclaims WHS demise after a scrimmage against a private school team that is nationally ranked as high as #4 in the NATION,you might be retarded. They will be fine. You’re probably the same retards ready to crown the Cleveland Browns SB champs cuz they won their pre-season game over the Giants.

Finally. Where you been? Thread's just not the same without you trolling.

Perspective. Westfield was dominated in the St. John's scrimmage and anyone trying to say otherwise is delusional. No excuses. An all star team hand picked from every school in Fairfax County would have a difficult time against St. Johns.

Anyone claiming St. John's "let up" at any point in that scrimmage is way off base. Sure, they started subbing but that team and coaches brought it big time on every play. Kudos to them.

Westfield has historically been one of the biggest and most physical teams out there. That has not always been the case the last two seasons. Not sure that totally matters but we'll find out. As someone else pointed out there were a number of teams last season that were bigger and arguably more physical but still went 15-0.

I don't think there is any question that there will be a learning curve with the defense this season with an entirely new defensive line - no one returning. But don't believe this equates to a complete drop off to junk. But sure there is an opportunity for teams to knock them off. I think Lake Braddock, South County, Stonewall, Madison, Patriot, Centreville and West Potomac could all be close games. But all those teams have holes to fill as well.

Here's an interview with Haddock if you haven't seen it. Always hard to evaluate his comments because he is the ultimate cheerleader.

https://mvp.gamedaymagazine.com/members/media/2018-camp-quick-hits-centreville-wildcats/

Would never COUNT Madison out. Westfield-Madison-Centreville in Concorde District. Really believe any of these three could win it. Oakton will not challenge and Chantilly will be improved but improved from 0-10.

Was really impressed with John Finney from Madison. Don't know why he is not getting more recruiting attention.

Hearing there are a lot of investigations into ineligible transfers this season. Wonder how many schools will end up having to forfeit games?

How will all of the reports be investigated before the season starts? How are the transfers “verified” as eligible?

Do they actually do home checks to verify moves have actually occurred?

They should just do away with so many mediocre teams and combine some schools into 1 team. All of the schools opening are destroying athletic.

One way to stop cheating is if each school system makes Regulations to have student-athletes participate in athletics wherever they live. They can go to another school for a specialty program, but have to play at the school where they live. That will clearly show kids are going to other schools for academic purposes only. Not for athletics.

Not sure if folks know that a school system trumps VHSL eligibility policies by the way of a superintendents waiver. Which are granted more times than not. So a school system has the power to keep student athletes from transferring for athletic purposes.

So nieves, mostly, each school district inforces their employment contracts and disciplinary actions of the teachers and students. VHSL sets Gudelines for student athlete eligibility but has no enforcement ability.

The school district has to receive a formal complaint about ineligible players and/or recruiting violations. THEN, the school district has to decide what to do about the complaint.

1. Without documented violations from a private investigator, no school will issue a complaint. The problem is that no schools likely will incur the cost of the PHONE WITH. All the coaches, boosters and players know that! So, recruiting goes on with impunity.

2. The only case that I know of which resulted in a penalty was with Ocean Lakes. They had a player which actually had an apartment in district but the kid was living there by himself! Who knows how & whom paid for it. Their penalty was a forfeit of the whole previos seasons games. THEN, they got caught enticing several know D's to change school districts ONLY because of a Facebook posting and news article how a bunch of kids who played for the VA Beach Mustangs planned to all play for Coach Chris Scott when he was at Ocean Lakes. Most of those kinds should have played at a different High School! Their penalty despite a clear second Offense by coach Scott was that he was suspended for five games. THEN, when he violated his suspension, he got a whole 2 more game suspension. That team was ranked #6 in the country but lost in the playoffs!

3. So, I'll say it again, nothing really happens even when some gets caught red handed. The press actually covered this to make it sound like Ocean Lakes was a victim in this whole thing. When Chris Scott left for Bishop Sullivan, he took about 8 kids with him. TCIS suspended ALL sports from BSCHS from any playoffs for 3 years! The press AGAIN, made everything sound like Chris Scott was the victim! AND,the TCIS lifted the ban except for football for this year.

4. Bottom line, unless YOU have a lot of influence AND the press/media becomes supportive and interested in kids transferring, NOTHING is EVER going to happen.

Every state has similar rules & similar problems. But, until the coaches find a way to self govern themselves OR Coaches are treatened to have their teacher's license revoked over improper transfers, NOTHING is going to happen, period!

I see I'm not the only one that believes Madison is the dark horse for the 2018 season. The Warhawks are not going to be any worse than last year and it seems pretty obvious that Westfield and Centreville will be.

Madison returns a big chunk of an already tough defense (6 starters plus a number of contributors). Their defensive line while not huge is strong and they have most of them coming back (Paul, Counts, Rhodes).

They have a couple of returning offensive lineman (Almanza + Gardner), a decent QB and a great receiver in Finney. They may have lost RB Walker but they will find a couple of performers.

Madison is a hard-nosed tough football team and the 2018 version is going to give the Concorde teams a difficult time.

They didn't lose Brandon Walker...he is a senior this year. (Koshuta RB and Williams FB graduated). Lineman Gardner has a foot injury from the Woodgrove scrimmage...may have a whole to fill. The backup QB Yates is pretty darn good too, ran a lot of option in the Woodgrove scrimmage. Add Schrader to the list of those coming back on defense. UU6NG is right these kids aren't "huge" but they're strong , quick to the ball,and well coached. (but that can be said of Westfield and Centerville)

I'm not going to call SL a contender by any means but predicting them to start 0-4 with that schedule is just as much if not more of a reach. Taylor took the FHS job because his kid is going there not just because of the loss of Miles, Alston and Mensah. Bailing on SL for FHS would make no sense from a talent/potential standpoint. Alston and Mensah are tough to replace but Miles younger brother will take over the QB role and may prove to be even better.

They'll lose to C'ville and possibly Ytown and at the most one more if there's a better than expected surprise team on their schedule this year. I'll go with 7-3.

Why, I’ll tell you why, cuz he knew what he had with Alston, Mensah & Miles along with big Dave Kroll & Funaki. All that talent graduated and the cupboard is bare at SL. If you think SL is going to do any better than 6-4 you are seriously delusional or you’re on the coaching staff. Taylor decided he’d rather suck and have a shorter commute. FHS will never be good. I saw their 7v7 and the varsity QB has a noodle arm. Can’t wait for al these teams SL ran the score up on the past several extract their revenge against SL & coach Raylor at FHS.

Doc will be fine as long as he keeps his spending in check.

Van Acker is the only Woodson coach to compete with South County let alone beat them.

Vossler has had one losing season in which they lost to Westfield, Stone abridge, and Centreville by one score.

All are in good shape and solid coaches.

Robinson and LB should be contending for state titles in football every year!
One and done in the playoffs means the teams are under achieving and that's coaching.

Robinson under Bendorf and LB under Poythress were always contending. Bendorf won 2 state titles, while Poythress didn't win a state title, his teams were always a force. I cant see Robinson sticking with Vossler, if they have another sub par year. LB with Daughtery, has the most talent, if he cant win with that, then he should be out as well.

The Woodson guy, Van Acker, if he can go 6-4, 7-3 with the limited talent at Woodson, he may be the next Robinson or LB coach.

Contending for state title takes some major talent. While at Robinson Bendorf had some major division 1 players at the skill positions. Poythress also had some major skill talent on his best teams. Do you see those players on Lake Braddock and Robinson’s rosters now? These teams have talent more like Oakton and Woodson than the Westfields, Centrevilles, and Woodbridge’s of today. The high end talent has moved South and West.

For some reason I thought Walker was gone but I stand corrected. Schrader is who I was referring to by a contributor - he made some nice plays in the playoff game against Centreville.

Not sure if I’m mixing this up but didn’t Lake Braddock and Robinson make it to the 3rd round of the playoffs a couple years ago. Where those different coaches?

I dont see Westfield with major division 1 talent and they contend every year, they just have great coaching. They coach what they have and get the most out of them.

All I am saying is Robinson and LB have very good talent every year, if coached up, they could be a force.

If you put Westfield staff at Robinson or LB, they would contend every year!

Westfields staff is great, but they aren’t talentless. I don’t think they’d trade rosters with anyone except maybe Cville or South County in FCPS.
People also forget that Westfield took their licks from people on this board for the 1st half of this decade. Then they got on a roll. It took some time and patience to get to where they are now. Maybe that’s their secret.

Then Tusky & Broad Run & Champe (cuz their recruiting game is nowhere near as strong as Mickey’s)

And, that coach recruits from outside BRYC territory so those kids are not going to LB, WTW, and RHS. Over the last ten years BRYC has gone down. All youth clubs are down but it is really bad at BRYC. Great coaches were fired due to whiney parents. Others left for other clubs or just quit. Even the one year Pannoni took WTW to the regional final against North Stafford, 75% of the kids were from BRYC and most went both ways. I have heard from one parent they have about 100 players. In their heyday that was well over 300.

Speaking of recruiting - I am seeing Chantilly Youth (CYA) football signs all over Centreville. I know it is informal but the signs are in Centreville where traditionally the kids would go with SYA. Interesting.

Participation is done 650 kids from last year. Current methods to get kids into tackle are not succeeding. Need several outvteach programs through out the year involving league and Hs coaches in elementary schools and middle schools to get participation back on track. Days of opening up registration and having them line up is no longer good enough.there is a new 800lb gorilla on the block and that is the flag league that is backed by the marketing machine of the NFL. They started having a fall season a few years ago and now they have stolen our market share. Coaches, start thinking of this as a business, how do we get our fair share back? Whatever it is it needs to be a concerted group effort by everyone at ALL LEVELS!

I assume that you are referring to the Westfield area Centreville? The Westfield program has always had kids from multiple programs such as CYA and the youth program at Herndon (I forgot what it is called), not just SYA so I don't think the sign you saw signifies any change.

Top 5 are:
1. Broad Run
2. Tuscarora
3. Stone Bridge
4. Champe
5. Potomac Falls


Big Three this year will once again dominate Loudoun.

Surprised previous poster picked Broad Run # 1, as they have had very strong teams last 5 years, but can't see to get over the hump. They do look to have the best talent RETURNING, but, as we all know, that doesn't mean that they had the best year RECRUITING.

I like their athleticism with D1 QB and D1 RB. Lots of speed on defense, but are they big enough up front on both sides of the ball? Can Griffis win a big game?

Tusky is big, real big. However, they lost Burnett and that has to be a loss. Also, their QB has a broken arm and a recently-acquired DUI. Interesting to see when he is allowed back. He is a playmaker, to be sure.

Stone Bridge is not as strong up front as in past years, but that just might be the way it is all across NOVA this year. Poached Oakton stud and of course, pillaged Rock Ridge. If they can't beat Doc and Lake Braddock early, might be indicative that Thompson wasn't able to recruit enough horses this year for deep run.

Best of the Rest -

Woodgrove will be solid. Big TE is headed to JMU, but not sure their QB can throw well enough to go far in the playoffs. They also get Tusky and Broad Run early, so they will know quickly if they can compete before headed to 5A next year. Skinner is a damn good recruiter too.

Champe lost a ton of offensive talent, and they had a helluva time stopping the top offenses last year. Interesting match up next week against Friendship Collegiate from DC. Looking at a couple of steps back, I would think. They do have at least 500 more kids than any other Loudoun school, so that might help. 6A next year.

Potomac Falls is well coached but they lost a lot and look small and not particularly fast. Let's see if they can keep Broad Run under 40 next week.

Heritage was a surprise last year, but their head coach (a good one) just resigned last week to take an AD job.Tough task this late into it.

Dominion picked up a couple of Park View kids last week, so you would assume that anyone transferring to play football is decent. Might help them out. They have been a solid 4A team past couple of years.

Briar Woods has honestly sucked since McSorley left. New coach, but their best underclassman transferred. Glory days are well past them.

The other schools are really, really bad. Should put them in a conference with Edison, Lee, Falls Church, and TJ. That would at least be competitive.

As always Loudoun has a lot of talent, especially in the East. I enjoyed the 5A Loudoun schools playing 6A Fairfax schools a couple of years ago.

Bottom line, none of the 5A Loudoun teams can beat Huighland Springs, so another year with no state champ from NOVA.

4A teams certainly don't have enough to challenge programs like Salem and Blacksburg.

Any questions? :)

You are joking right? High schools absolutely recruit!

I mean some aren’t hard. Do you want to play at Rock Ridge and hope for 1 win again or do you want to go to Stone Bridge and make a run for States? When is a Thompson gonna retire anyway? Any more info on all the kids from Rock Ridge to Stone Bridge? I haven’t heard of any other Schools recruiting.

If the new Tuscarora coach follows the way Burnett did things maybe they can make another run. Heard Tusky O line is very big, but the Coach may not be starting/playing all of the for some weird reason!

Is Highland Springs really that good year after year?

Been explained here a thousand times. When it comes to recurring expenses, your tax dollars pay for transportation to/from games, coaches' stipends, electricity for the lights and the refs.

All other expenses, which are much more than the above, are payed for via fund raising. Also note that at most schools football gate receipts are shared with all the other money losing sports.

What exactly is it that has held Broad Run back during the Griffis era?

Seems like until last year it was defense. In their first 6 playoff losses under Griffis they gave up 24, 47, 37, 35, 35, 28. Last year was a close one 12-14 to Tuscarora.

Stone Bridge I guess. 1-12 all-time. Ouch.

Scheme and QB play has been inadequate. Come playoff time QB’s need to make plays and not have turnovers. Playmaker gene either you have it or you don’t

Westfield vs Qince Orchard vs DeMatha no touchdowns very poor OL play. It could be a tough year for the Bulldogs.

After the departure of Chase Soper, Junior Billy Edwards and Quentin James will now be a part of a two QB system.

What's that about?

LB is a better team this year and Westfield is not as good as they were last year.
The coaching at LB has had a full year of off season to work with the team and it has shown in the scrimmages against Mt Vernon and Forrest Park.

LB take this one easily and will become the new team to beat in the region.

There is a new sheriff in town and he is the reining Patriot Conference "Coach of the year" and his name is Doc!!!


There energy & tempo, toughness, discipline and significance can not be match

You don’t get blown the fuck out in 2nd rd by avg Seahawks team previous to alll of a sudden become miraculously better the following year. Bunch of dumb fucks!

Who cares if they played WHS tough, they got blown the F out by SL 35-0!!!!!!!
MHS obviously can’t handle speed teams & if they run into TC or Hayfield or Patriot or Battlefield team that has size & speed you can expect pretty much th same result.

Tired of the Warhawks hype, especially when they haven’t won anything and only last 2 seasons became barely relevant.

Whoa. What's with the anger toward Madison? I think if Madison had a second crack at South Lakes they could have beat them (they turned the Centreville result around after 1 week). They just seem to have had a big letdown after the two big Centreville games. But that was a shocking result against South Lakes.

Two of the toughest games Westfield has had the last two seasons has been the two against Madison. They are not far away from making run in the playoffs.

Just my thoughts on this weeks games

Annandale v Justice - Annandale gets the early season win

Edison v Mt Vernon – this will be a blow out, Mt Vernon has way to many athletes for Edison

Briar Woods v West Potomac – Briar Woods isn’t the same team they were a few years ago, WP wins

Fairfax v McLean – New coaching staff at Fairfax, easy win for Fairfax

Hayfield v Chantilly – Hayfield and Henderson will still dominate a better this year Chantilly team

Langley v South county – South County score 50 and sales thru the night

Marshall v Madison – Madison with the easy win, Marshall is not very good

Oakton v Battlefield – Battlefield is way to big for Oakton to handle

Osborn Park v TC – TC always has athletes, will win if they all show up

Robinson v Hylton – Hylton doesn’t have the horses they had last year, but enough to beat a Robinson team who may have a tough year

Stonewall Jackson v Centreville – Is Centreville a pretender or a contender, this game should tell a lot

WT Woodson v South Lakes – SL doesn’t have the horses this year, lost their coach just a few weeks ago and Woodson is not a bad team, Woodson wins

West Springfield v Lee – West Springfield wins

Westfield v Lake Braddock – Westfield wins, LB has a lot of talent and they will make it a close game. Coaching makes this game

People are high if they think LB and Robinson have State Title in their future. Their talent, size, and schedule are three reasons why. The schedule will be too tough and injuries will mount up and they have no depth. Talent is average to below average for both teams. Neither team has the size on their lines too Run the ball or pass protect. LB better get rid of the ball quick! Robinson will stay with the run.

I am at a loss how these parents and fans keep stating these two teams are state contenders the past few years.

Why does Westfield take on Lake Braddock before school even starts! That seems like backwards planning. Still, I’ve seen them both and I say it will be a good game.

MaxPreps2018 Preseason Virginia Rankings
Rank School Rec.
1 Highland Springs 0-0
2 Oscar Smith (Chesapeake) 0-0
3 Salem 0-0
4 Westfield (Chantilly) 0-0
5 Manchester (Midlothian) 0-0

10 Freedom (Woodbridge) 0-0
11 Stone Bridge (Ashburn) 0-0

After watching the Manchester vs Ocean Lakes Scrimmage on Thursday, I'd have to consider that Manchester looks more like the typical Westfield type team and I'd actually move them above Westfield based on talent. The question becomes about coaching quality & experience AND if their player's intensity level can increase to compete at the next level? The top 4 teams know what Championship level intensity is but do the Lancers?

Did you watch the scrimmage at all? I'll give you the O-line didn't dominate but wasn't awful. Just as EVERY pre-season when WF plays Dematha and QO they struggle since these are pretty good teams. I would venture to say both QO and Dematha are far superior to any team currently on WF's schedule. I think the most notable thing for the Bulldogs is that their defense played very well against both QO and Dematha. The final score of both games was 7-0 if I'm not mistaken, so please, don't start writing Westfield off yet.

I've seen the demise of the Bulldogs discussed the past couple weeks based off of pre-season. If you know Simmons and staff they could care less about what the final score is in scrimmages, they use them to begin putting the pieces together. Asante, WF's starting running back barely played offense, spent most of both games playing LB. So I wouldn't put much into what happens in pre-seasons especially when the opponents are St Johns, Dematha, Quince Orchard. Once again, 3 teams that any public school in Virginia, other than Oscar Smith, couldn't come close to matching in talent.

Going to give some predictions based on what I have seen having 2 sons play high school football over the past 6 years. Remember, this is my first time doing this so hopefully I can nail some of these spreads. Feedback is also welcome...

1. Annandale (-10) @ Stuart
- Annandale rarely loses to JEB. Don't think JEB has enough to pull it out. Although I don't see a blowout, Annandale wins easily.

2. Stonewall Jackson @ Centreville (-14)
- Don't know much about Stonewall, but this should give us an early idea of what to expect from Centreville.

3. Hayfield (-35) @ Chantilly
- Hayfield has a junior transfer QB who came from Braddock & Chantilly is horrible. Hayfield will score 50+

4. Edison @ Mount Vernon (-30)

5. Fairfax (-10) @ McLean

6. Roosevelt (DC) @ Falls Church (-28)
- Who allows FC to schedule multiple DC teams every year? It gives them 6 home games a year, as well as easy wins.

7. Westfield (-7) @ Lake Braddock
- Game of the week. GREAT early season match-up and it'll give us an idea as to Westfield & LB's talent.

8. Langley @ South County (-30)
- The spread could've been higher...

9. Lee @ West Springfield (-10)
- Snooze fest.

10. Marshall @ Madison (-28)

11. Oakton @ Battlefield (-28)

12. Robinson @ Hylton (-21)
- Don't know much about these PWC & Loudoun schools, but damn Robinson isn't what they used to be.

13. Woodson @ South Lakes (-13)
- Low spread, given I don't know how much talent SL has with the graduation of the 2 studs. But, if you think they are going to lose to WTW, you need to be drug tested.

14. Osbourn Park @ T.C. Williams (-25)
- They're probably going to have to start this one RIGHT after school. (Shame TCW doesn't have lights - feel for the kids, but the Saturday afternoon games are unique. Also, OP is terrible. TCW will cover.

15. Northern Virginia Homeschool Association @ Thomas Jefferson (-6)
- Wow. I don't know where to begin with this. Should TJ continue fielding a team? At least they are scheduling schools (Is NVHSAA a 'school'?) that they can kinda compete with. Hopefully they win a few games this year.

16. Briar Woods @ West Potomac (-17)

I expect Westfield to implement an attempt at using a West Coast, ball control Offense this year. Every pass will be on a Three step/count to keep N. Kim from getting hurt. The Bulldogs will concentrate on their Defense with Asante trying to hold things at MLB. But, they will be vulnerable to whomever can have an effective power running game!

I'm just not sure which team can accomplish what it takes to beat the Bulldogs. I'm guessing Madison & Centreville would be the most likely to beat them. In the playoffs, there are a couple of teams but I don't think they'd meet up until the regional games.

Annandale will win by more than 10.

Stonewall should be improved from last season (3-7). They will be a handful for Centreville. -7 is more like it.

LB has more talent but Westfield has better coaching. Should be a close game.

I have a feeling Oakton will cover.

TCW is going to be a solid team this year.


> 16. Briar Woods @ West Potomac (-17)

If BW can't cover that they are going to have a bad year.
