First Colonial defensive tackle Simeyon Robinson came on in a huge way during his senior season. Robinson was a lanky defender going into his junior season, looking more like a pass catching tight end rather than a defensive lineman. After hitting the weight room and applying himself on the field, he’s earned a college opportunity.
Alderson-Broaddus College continues to scoop up local talent and take them to West Virginia. The Battlers picked up two new players over the weekend when Clay Teets and Zach Templeton of Portsmouth Christian made the trip and came back committed.
($$) Lake Taylor athlete Jalyn Holmes continues to pick up scholarship offers. The Titan junior had an amazing junior season and led his team to the Division 5 State Championship. Holmes added a new offer late last week when an SEC school came calling. He’s also made a major change in his offer list.
($$) Ocean Lakes wide receiver Andre Dessenberg had a stellar season for the Ocean Lakes Dolphins. His production was astounding in a passing game that led the region in efficiency and scoring. Dessenberg finished the regular season with 63 catches for 872 yards and 18 touchdowns. Dre added to that total in five postseason games. He committed to Delaware back in September, but had a late change of heart.
($$) After being spurned by Maryland, Ocean Lakes lineman Demetri McGill was forced to re-open his recruitment. This was just a couple of weeks ago. Demetri settled on four schools to take official visits. By this past weekend, McGill narrowed the list to three after three visits. After time to think, McGill announced his intention Monday night.
