Congratulations to the defense at Western Branch High School for winning the Freedom Ford Player of the Week award. The award was presented to the team on Thursday afternoon, and photos from the event are posted in the gallery on recruit757.com!
We had a group of hot games last week, and the schedule brings us more this week. There’s a lot on the line as several games give us matchups between undefeated teams.
The Hampton Crabbers bounced back from a loss with a thrashing of Denbigh Thursday night. The Patriots were stopped at every turn, and Coach Mike Smith turned to Marshawn Williams to carry the load in the running game.
One of Corwin Cutler’s favorite targets has made his college commitment. 6-2 190 pound wideout Andre Dessenberg started gathering attention last year with his college ready size and his ability to go up and get the ball. As a senior, his stock has risen by becoming the “go to” guy in the Dolphins’ passing game. While Ocean Lakes has been piling up points, Dessenberg has gathered interest and offers. Now, he’s decided that it’s time to commit.
Four games into the 2012 season, Stan Sexton has been removed from his role as head coach of the defending State Champion Phantoms. Not a lot of information is coming out of the Phoebus camp at the moment, but here’s what we know….
The votes are in and the writers of the Associated Press have released their Top 10 by Group after last week’s games in the VHSL. There are some familiar names at all levels for the 757.
The Class of 2014 in The 757 is the hottest yet. It should be no surprise then that the University of Michigan, yet again another Big Ten school, is reaching into the area for talent. Ohio State has started coming in more regularly, Purdue has been picking up the pace, and Penn State has been recruiting here for ages. A couple of our most valuable players picked up offers from the U of M today.
For the Bay Rivers District, seeing a player go away to play college football at an SEC school would be a coup. For Poquoson ATH Grayson Boyce, the chance to take an unofficial visit was a thrill. After Friday night’s game against Tabb, the Poquoson junior took a flight down to Tuscaloosa for a college game day he’ll never forget.
This week’s Freedom Ford Player of the Week, was a non-traditional pick, but deserving in every way. The Western Branch Bruins defense claimed this week’s award, topping Blue Chip Running Back Taquan Mizzell of Bayside High School in the fan voting.
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.
