We’re at the halfway point of the season. While we know a lot about the teams in the Peninsula District already, the story isn’t finished. Is Phoebus still Phoebus? Will any Newport News teams make the playoffs? Will there be a Division 6 team from the Peninsula in the postseason?
Congratulations to Greenbrier Christian Academy running back Ty Smith for winning the Freedom Ford Player of the Week award. The award was presented to Ty on Wednesday afternoon, and photos from the event are posted in the gallery on recruit757.com!
Princess Anne linebacker Aaron Glover is a standout for his Cavaliers team. He’s perhaps the biggest college prospect on the squad, and he’s only a junior. College interest is rolling in for the defender who hit the camp and college circuit hard over the Spring and Summer. His hard work is paying off, though he’s not done yet.
Norfolk Public Schools announced a change to this week’s scheduled home games for Lake Taylor, Granby, and Norview. This announcement comes on the heels of a fatal shooting that occurred just blocks away from Booker T. Washington High School last Friday night.
If the playoffs started today, it wouldn’t look good for the Private Schools of The 757. Only three teams in the region are headed to the playoffs at this point, but there’s plenty of time for teams to make up ground. Norfolk Christian, Isle of Wight Academy and Greenbrier Christian are in at this point, with Bishop Sullivan, Hampton Christian, Hampton Roads Academy, and Norfolk Academy in position to make a move.
It was Monday night football in The 757. Friday night’s postponement created a standalone matchup of Beach District teams looking to improve their playoff position.
The VHSL Power Ratings have been released, and after roughly five weeks, we have our first look at the playoff picture. There are certainly some surprises in the bunch. You’ll pick them out when you see them.
The VHSL Power Ratings have been released, and after roughly five weeks, we have our first look at the playoff picture. Smithfield, York, Lafayette, Franklin and Sussex Central have risen to the top, with many teams chasing them.
This week’s Freedom Ford Player of the Week blew away the competition on the field Friday night, and took the voting by an overwhelming margin over the weekend. Greenbrier Christian running back Ty “Flash” Smith had a great weekend.
Heritage running back Khalid Abdullah burst onto the scene last year as a major weapon on a team on the rise. His workload was heavy and the Hurricanes were just a few key plays away from a winning record. College interest was building, but his one season hadn’t bought him enough equity to gain the bigger interest that fellow PD backs like Cardon Johnson and Tony Pittman were getting. Now five games into his senior season, that first offer has arrived.
