It wasn’t just a day for college football yesterday. Two private school match ups and a game at Darling Stadium between PD foes completed this week’s schedule.

Friday night’s Beach District schedule was full of interesting matchups, perhaps none more intriguing than the tilt between Kellam and Princess Anne. The Knights were trying to stretch their undefeated record to 4-0 while the Cavaliers were trying to grab their second win of the season after a losing streak that lasted more than four seasons.
There was a lot at stake on Friday night as several teams had a lot to prove. Winning streaks were on the line. Playoff opportunities are unfolding. Who rose to the occasion?
Senior Tucker Curran made the difference for Cox (3-2) who shut out Landstown for the first time in 12 meetings between the two Beach District schools.
The Bookers haven’t taken flight yet this season, but Booker T. Senior Rodney Johnson is seeing his recruitment take off. The athlete was accruing offers in the offseason and the attention from college coaches hasn’t slowed down.
We’re only a few weeks into the season and we already have some matchups that will have a big hand in sorting the playoff race. This is the time where teams off to a hot start have to find the perseverance to keep on winning.
The teams with the better records held serve. Both Warwick and Gloucester came into tonight looking for their first wins, but they didn’t have enough. Instead, Menchville and Kecoughtan came out of the night with wins, putting them both in better position in the Peninsula District race.
Congratulations to Shyheim Swinson of Landstown High School for winning the Freedom Ford Player of the Week award. The award has been presented and photos from the event are posted in the gallery on recruit757.com!
Three or four games into the season, we expected some teams to taste early success. Did you pick Salem to be undefeated? So did everyone else. There are some surprises in the ranks of the undefeated at this point, and we have some teams that should have made it into the win column by now.
