VHSL Confirms New Conference Alignment Plan

Earlier this week, the VHSL confirmed the new conference alignment plan that will come into effect for the 2013-14 academic year. For Football in Division 5 & 6, that means that all of the traditions of teams playing their way out of the Eastern Region to make it to the State Semifinals game are over. Some teams will change classification due to their enrollment figures. Ultimately, it’s a lot of change for teams in Group AAA and AA.

McGill On Maryland Move To Big 10

Ocean Lakes Defensive Tackle Demetri McGill had a huge senior season, tearing up opposing offensive lines in pursuit of a State Championship. His performances didn’t go unnoticed, as he held numerous scholarship offers before making his verbal commitment to the Unversity of Maryland about a month ago. Since that time, the Terps announced they’re moving from the ACC to the Big 10. Does that affect McGill’s decision?

Dolphins Fall Short in Title Bid

Ocean Lakes was off to a promising start. On the first play from scrimmage Saturday, quarterback Churchie Harold threw a lateral to Andre Dessenberg, who then heaved the ball down field to a waiting Sese Wolters, who shook off two would-be tacklers and raced for the end zone. The 77-yard play was the highlight of the day for Ocean Lakes.

Tribe Snags Commit From Santiago

The Bay Rivers District’s top receiver has made his commitment. Grafton wide out Jesse Santiago started the fall with a few options, then had a flurry of late interest as his senior highlights made the rounds. Despite an offer to walk-on at Virginia Tech and a late push by the coaching staff there, Santiago committed to William and Mary Saturday during an official visit.
