Future Watch: Tyler DeSue

Sometimes, up and coming talent is hard to ignore. There might be two more varsity starters at quarterback for Ocean Lakes before Tyler DeSue rises up, but he’s almost certain to make an appearance soon. The gunslinger who has one more year at middle school ahead of him has had a fantastic summer, and it culminated with a hot performance at FBU’s Top Gun Camp in Dublin, Ohio last week.

Goosen Adds New Offer

Tallwood offensive lineman Theo “T.J.” Goosen is seeing his recruitment pick up as summer camp season winds down. Most of the schools showing big interest have been the type of colleges that are slower to move on prospects. Because of this, Goosen has done a lot of camping and had a lot of unofficial visits. College coaches are sold on the 6-5 270 pound tackle, especially since his academics are outstanding. All he needs is a little kick start, and it looks like the offers will start rolling in.

Schedule Preview: Eastern District

Again, we’re going to go into this year treating the programs as though they’re playing a district schedule. The VHSL reclassified all high school programs earlier this year, and the new classifications are effective with the start of the new school year. In football, all teams generally agreed to keep their district schedules in order to make scheduling easier for the next two years. For the schools of the former Eastern District, that means seven games of “the usual” and three new games for the schedule. That has presented problems for two schools.

757 Elite Successful at JMU 7on7

Chalk up more wins for the home team. The 757 Elite Team, represented mostly by Peninsula District stars with a few Southsiders bolstering the lineup, finished strong at James Madison’s passing tournament at the end of last week. It’s the culmination of another successful season for 757 Elite, and it marks great progress for the players that brought the team together.

Wake Weekend Leaves Bruins Ready For College Life

Last weekend, Wake Forest commits Daiquan Lawrence (SR DB 5-11 185) and Terence Ricks (SR LB/RB 6-1 195) visited Wake during the program’s one-day camp weekend. The duo relaxed and enjoyed their time on campus, took in some of the camp, and spent some time getting to know the players and staff better. The Deacons’ latest commits from The 757 were left ready to start their college careers already.
