Western Branch running back Josh Marriner lit up the Deep Creek Hornets on Friday night, rushing 261 yards on 16 carries with three touchdowns in a 60-12 win. The Bruins are 2-0 on the season already, and Marriner has had a key role in his team’s success so far this season.
Bethel Safety Nicholas Clark is seeing his recruitment heat up. He just recently added a new offer, and he was able to squeeze in a college visit this past weekend that allowed him to see two teams that pique his interest. What’s the latest with the Bruin?
Congratulations to this week’s Freedom Ford Player of the Week, Brice Tucker of Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School. In the fan voting, Tucker narrowly edged Bayside running back Taquan Mizell. All of the nominees had astounding performances last week, but Tucker took the prize with his performance in an impressive win over Portsmouth Christian.
The Virginia Cavaliers had an impressive day on Saturday. The play on the field was good enough to top visiting Penn State by a score of 17-16.
