What an awesome day we had for Week #2 of season 4.  The sun was out at Wilson HS and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.  The teams were ready for action.  When we looked at the schedule after the first week, we thought we would be in for one of the most competitive weekends of Grassroots Football that we had ever seen.  Based on week #1, the Anne Arundel vs Montgomery game was sure to be a battle.

The Charles County Heat appeared to have a big advantage over Prince William.  However, Charles County's offense did not move the ball at all in  week 1 so anything could have happened.  PG County showed amazing heart in week 1 and the Loudoun Eagles were seeking revenge.  We thought that would be good.  After the Stallions from Baltimore showed off in week 1 and the reigning champion HC Stars did their thing, we thought we were in for an epic event.  The only game we were concerned about getting out of hand was the DC Warrior vs Fairfax Game, but with the struggles that the Warriors had on offense in week 1, who knew what could happen.  Boy, where we wrong!!!!!!  I guess that is why we play the games ladies and gentlemen.  We can not predict this stuff.

Game #1 Anne Arundel County Wildcats vs Montgomery County Bearcats
This was the game of the day.  This one most definitely did not disappoint. It came down the wire and had us all on the edges of our seats. The Wildcats played without their superstar QB Sam Brown and the Bearcats played with All Star LB/FB Jalen Lea, so neither was at full strength. FBU QB Travis Nannen from MV made his debut and came out firing the speedy Anthony Budd, who caught the first pass in the flat and used his speed to turn the corner and move the chains before the Wildcats forced a turnover on downs.

Isaiah Robinson came out firing short passes to his sure handed and elusive receiver Cameron Sullivan-Brown but they were unable to convert. On the next series of downs FBU All Star Jonathan Donnelly broke through the line from his tailback position for a big gain up the middle. Then GYFL Alum Marvin Beander from Maplewood showed that mind bending quickness that we saw as a 7th grader. The Bearcats have two top quality QB’s with Doc Bonner and Nannen alternating series. Bonner hit the slant pattern to get the Bearcats in scoring position. Then he caught Donnelly on the TD pass after he had split out to the WR position. Doc and Donnelly connected for the winning score last week against the Heat and had the Bearcats off to a 6 – 0 lead as the first quarter came to a close.

Deangelo Thompson ended the Wildcats next drive with a sack on Robinson and Budd had a slick return across the Wildcat 40. On the first play the Bearcats went for the jugular. Nannen dropped back and eluded a defender. He stepped up in the pocket and found Budd streaking down the numbers wide open on a wheel route. He threw a perfect spiral and led him down to the 15 yard line for an apparent touchdown. Budd dropped the ball that hit him right in his hands. Nannen hit GYFL and Chesapeake Bowl alum Tremayne Stott out of the backfield and he moved the chains with a nice run after the catch, but the Wildcats held and forced a turnover on downs.

Both defenses began to take over for the rest of the first half with Doc Bonner and Robinson completing passes, but not being able to sustain drives. Jaret Patterson had a couple of nice runs and Robinson’s evolution as a QB was evident when he felt the rush, rolled out to his right and threw a 30 yard bullet down the right numbers to Sullivan-Brown who made a brilliant leaping catch to get the ball inside the Bearcat 20 yard line with only a few seconds on the clock. On the last play of the half, Robinson hit Patterson over the middle and he eluded 3 Bearcat defenders to cross the goal line, just as the horn sounded to end the 2nd quarter. The halftime score was 6 – 6.

Deron Whitley of the Wildcats had a nice kickoff return to put the Wildcats in good field position, but a big sack by GYFL Alum, FBU All Star and Chesapeake Bowl Alum Brian McNeary pushed the Wildcats back and they were forced to punt after Stott made another hard hit. Budd had a nice return on the punt but fumbled the ball. He was fortunate that his teammate recovered it. Nannen had a man who had beaten his defender up the left side of the field, but his pass was short and was intercepted by Timothy Williams of the Wildcats.

Big James Patterson had a bruising up the middle on a trap play to push the ball across the 50 into Bearcat territory. Big Jabari Bennett from Montgomery County bursts through the line and made a big stop on Whitley. Then Doc Bonner broke through to stop Patterson for a loss. The drive ended on a sack by Bonner. The 3rd quarter ended with Nannen hitting McNeary with a bullet post pattern as he made a diving catch.

After 2 plays Nannen surveyed the field and realized that he had McNeary in man coverage on the left side of the field. Brian has great speed. Travis dropped back and lofted and perfectly tight spiral towards Brian who had a step on the DB trying to guard him. The safety was coming over the top but the pass was directed towards the flag and hit McNeary in almost perfect stride. He had to stretch out to catch it but the stretch actually created separation between him and the corner. He made the great catch, then used his speed to finish off the 45 yard TD catch giving the Bearcats the 12 – 6 lead with 7:00 minutes to play in the game.

The Wildcats has a couple more opportunities to tie the score but a timely sack by Thompson, combined with the ball control running game led by Donnelly, Stott and Chesapeake Bowl All Star and FBU All Star Carlos Washington, the Bearcats were able to hold off the Wildcats for the 12 – 6 hard fought victory.

Game #2 Prince William County Lions vs Charles County Heat 
This game got out of hand pretty quickly. Raymond Boone is one of the most phenomenal 7th Grade athletes in the DMV and possibly the country. The kid is about 5’11 and 175lbs. He is big, fast, strong, and physical and can do it on both sides of the ball. He is a member of the 7th Grade FBU National Championship Team and one of the top players in the GYFL Bar NONE!

On the Heat’s first play from scrimmage, QB Kelvin Bazemore, who had a rough initial outing last week came out firing. Boone ran a fly pattern from the 47 yard line and ran right past the DB trying to guard him. Bazemore hit him with a perfect bomb pass, which Boone caught in stride and turned into a quick 6 points for the Heat, who did not score a TD in week #1.

On the ensuing kickoff, Myles Gardner scooped up the short kick at the 27 yard line and broke through the first line of defense. In an instant, he made a quick move and was on the sideline sprinting towards the end zone. He was in an all out footrace and made it all the way down to the 5 yard line. What we learned on this play was that Gardner is elusive and has very good speed. We also learned that JJ Bowen has Great Speed! JJ did not give up, ran Gardner down and stopped him from scoring. Two plays later, 8th Grade Nova FBU QB Jayden Riley threw a frozen rope to Alex Smith for the TD pass to tie the score at 6 – 6.  Riley has a ton of talent and when the Lions get it together offensively, he is going to be a handful at the QB position.

On the Heat’s second day from scrimmage, Bazemore took the snap from his own 41 yard line and once again saw Boone wide to the right. Boone ran another fly pattern. This time the safety came over to help over the top, but it didn’t matter. Bazemore made the back shoulder throw and Boone was in a vertical leap competition with the DB, who had no chance. He jumped and turned back towards the ball, caught it with 2 hands, avoided the safety and turned on the jets from 30 yards out for a 59 yard TD catch! The Heat led 13 – 6. After a defensive stop, Boone showed us his punt return skills with a big time run back. The Heat were forced to punt, but after a muff, they got the ball right back in scoring position and JJ Bowen scored on a short run making the score 19 – 6.

Boone struck again on the next punt return. The ball was rolling around the 40 yard line and he lulled the coverage team to sleep by making them think he was going to let it die. Then he scooped it up and raced to the right sideline. He beat the defender to the corner and turned on the speed. He could not be caught and 40 yards later, he was sprinting into the end zone for his 3rd score of the day. Hold on a minute!!!! The yellow flags were on the field and brought it back, but it was so exciting that we had to write about it. As the quarter ended, the Heat were leading 19 – 6. On the first play of the 2nd quarter, Rashard Jackson exploded through a huge hole on the left side of the line for a 22 yard TD to give the Heat the 26 – 7 lead after the conversion.

Jarrett Powell came in at QB with the Lions backed up against their own goal line and they were not able to move the ball. The punt was blocked in the end zone and recovered by the Heat for another TD, pushing that score to 32 – 6.   After another punt by the lions, the Heat went to work. Elusive TB and 8th Grade FBU All Star TJ Hawkins made a huge run to get into Lion territory.  Hawkins has blazing speed and quickness.  A fumble on the next carry gave the ball back to the Lions and they got a little life when Powell hit Devante Smith on a swing pass out of the backfield and he got a chance to show off his immense talent. This kid has good size, good speed, and he is relentless on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. At that point, the pass defense of the Heat began to pick up steam.

7th Grade FBU National Champion Chaz Crawford picked off a Jayden Riley pass deep inside the 5 yard line and fumbled it on the return. The Heat recovered the fumble and were back in business as the 3rd quarter wound down. Boone almost broke another kick return before slipping on the sidelines. Rashard Jackson broke off another good run around the right side. Chaz Crawford caught a pass in the flat and got inside the 5, where JJ Bowen scored once again to make the score 38 – 6.

On the next possession, we were blown away by a run made by Devante Smith. He slipped through the middle, made a move, cut to the left, then broke against the grain and cut all the way back to the right and turned on the jets. He almost scored, but Rashard Jackson was able to catch him and push him out of bounds. Two plays later, Riley made and errant pass that was picked off by Nathan Proctor. Proctor is an extraordinary athlete that is poised to have a breakout season. Crawford had another exciting run that he almost broke that was called back by a penalty but was worth mentioning.

Bazemore was not finished with the big passes though. He hit Nick Gage on another long ball up the left sideline for about 25 yards midway through the 4th quarter. Chaz Crawford popped another run up the middle for big yardage down inside the 15 yard line. Then Bazemore hit Raymond “The Highlight Reel” Boone for another TD on a 15 yard TD pass to close out the scoring for the day. The Final score was Heat 44, Lions 6.

The Lions got strong performances from GYFl Alums Jonte “Big Baby” Craig, and Zion Johnson. Alex “Getter Done” Smith got it done as usual. On the Heat side, it was a total team performance led by a stellar offensive line. 7th Grade National Champions Daniel Hood, Jalen Brown, and Austin Fontaine were spectacular. Evan Gregory and Carrington Jones have big time potential at the next level.

Game #3 Loudoun County Eagles vs Prince George's County Swarm
This game was truly a shocker. We watched the PG Swarm do battle with the DC Warriors in week #1 with a very short roster and they displayed more heart and guts than any team we have seen in the league in many years. We expected this to be a barn burner as we knew the battle tested Eagles would put on a good show.

Meech Hembry got it started with a big kickoff return the Loudoun and a couple of tough runs up the middle. The Eagles were on the Swarm 30 yard line after two plays. A high snap to QB Mitchell Johns (brother of Gonzaga starting QB Nick Johns) provided the first turnover of the game. The Swarm recovered on the Eagle side of the 50 and we expected to see that vaunted running game that shredded the Warriors in week one on display. It was not to be. GYFL alum and 8th Grade FBU All Star Johny Jordan and the gang would have none of it.

Jordan is a “Star in the making!” On his way to Gonzaga and he will be dominant. This kid is special on both sides of the ball and ripped through the Swarm O-line on back to back plays pushing the Swarm back to their own 43 yard line and forcing a punt. Mitchell Johns is not only a good passer, but the kid is fast and runs hard. He opened the second possession up with a QB scramble. He also is a terrific ball handler with the ability to use slight of hand to keep defenses confused. Speedster Jayden Bunting showed off his 4.6 speed on reverse play where the defense was confused by John’s ball fakes. Bunting turned the right corner and worked his way down the 27 of the Swarm. Another speed sweep by Bunting around the right end moved the ball down to the 1 and Johns scored on the QB sneak to make the score 6 – 0, with 3:00 left in the 1st quarter.

The Swarm line features a couple of 8th Grade MD State All Stars for FBU that are destined to be elite HS Football players. Big Victor Olawatimi has the size, strength and power to be dominant at the next level when he gets to Carroll HS. He has all the tools and desire. Brian Lassiter has just gotten better and better since we found him at FBU. He is quick, smart, and as tough as they come. As he gets bigger and stronger, he has a chance to be special. He will take his considerable talents to St. Mary’s Ryken along with Ja Harold Williams (Another FBU Alum), who is a multi-talented athlete who can play TE, DE, LB and possibly FB. He is extremely versatile.

On the next drive, they began opening creases for Carl Payton, Jr., who was one of the stars from week one. He had a couple of hard and tough runs on the drive. Payton has become known for lowering the boom at the end of runs and finishing them in punishing style. Payton fumbled on the drive and it was recovered by the Eagles at the 50 and they went back to work. Alongside Jordan is an absolute monster! We call him “The Boss.” His name is Daniel Renaud and he can flat out get it done on both sides of the ball. He may be short in stature, but he is humongous in skill and heart. On his way to Stonebridge, Renaud has the talent to stay in the trenches, but the versatility to possibly play LB at the next level. Conner McNeilly, Evan Pittard and Nick Ormsby joined Renaud and Jordan to begin to dominate the line of scrimmage and Bunting broke another long run down to the 4 yard line. The Eagles did a great job of creating space for the speed of Bunting. Bunting got a great block from FB Kash Jackson and used the 4.6 to get to the corner for the Eagles 2nd score of the day. With 5:45 left in the first half, the score was 12 – 0 Eagles.

8th Grade FBU All Star Garrison Burnett went back to work on offense. Burnett has a ton of talent, with great size and speed. He is the ultimate run/pass threat, but he was unable to get the Swarm offense moving with the Eagles defensive line controlling the line of scrimmage. The Eagles took a 12 – 0 lead into halftime. During the first possession of the 2nd half for the Swarm, a bad snap over the head of Burnett that was recovered by the Eagles, gave them the ball inside the Swarm 20 yard line. Two plays later, a slick move by Bunting on the left side and another great block by Jackson moved the ball to the 2 yard line. Bunting was getting it done. Johns scored again on the QB sneak and the Eagles were running away with it at 18 – 0 with 7 minutes left in the 3rd.

The Boss sacked Burnett on the first play from scrimmage, and then Garrison got it going. He rolled out to the right, saw some daylight and literally turned on the after burners on a 40 yard run to get to the Eagle 30. On the next play, he found Payton in the flat and CJ turned it into a first down and the Swarm had life. But on the next play from scrimmage, Garrison made an errant throw that was picked off by Russell Blackwell, who made an exciting run back. He shaked and baked his way all the way back to the 27 yard line before being tackled. The life seemed to ooze out of the Swarm after that.

Bunting found some room around the left side and tore off a 45 yard run around the left sideline. Had Joshua Hicks not possessed blazing speed as well, Bunting would have scored. But, Hicks did not quit on the play and tackled Bunting at the 30 yard line. The Swarm defense held and forced a punt, which pinned them back at the 5 yard line. An untimely fumble was recovered by the Eagles on the 3, and the Eagles were back in business as the 3rd quarter came to an end with the score 18 – 0 Eagles. Jayden Bunting used that speed once again to turn the right corner on a jet sweep and he was in the end zone once again for a 24 – 0 lead.

On the next drive, the Eagle pressure was relentless. The Boss got another sack on Burnett and the Swarm were unable to move the ball, resulting in a turnover on downs. The last score of the day came from 21 yards out with Russell Blackwell, who is a very elusive runner, breaking off of the left tackle behind some great blocks on his way to pay dirt. The score was 30 – 0 with 4:00 left in the game. As the game wound down, Chima Kpaduwa recorded a sack, as did Thomas Ellis.  Kevin Burke is a super athlete who is a big play waiting to happen as a reciever.  In this run dominated offense, he doesn't get a lot of touches, but trust me, he can flat out ball.  He had an excellent game on the defensive side of the ball, leading his team in tackles.

In a lopsided loss, there were some strong efforts by Swarm players. Nykeim Johnson showed tremendous athletic ability from his WR/DB position. Jaivon Belt, is a FB/LB to be reckoned with. Brandon Rowe showed potential as well. The Swarm has talent, but they could not put it together on this day against the Eagles, who were just relentless.

Game #4 Baltimore Metro Stallions vs HC Stars
This game was the true shocker of the day.  The Stallions were riding high after an exciting victory in their first game against Anne Arundel County.  They were explosive on offense and suffocating on defense.  We would have bet our mortgages that this game would have been nail biter.  Wrong again.  The HC Stars came out with a vengeance and wrecked havoc on the Stallions.   The Stars feature four players from Baltimore that are all out ballers.  They have a7th Grade Linebacker/RB named Keith Felton that was a critical member of the 7th Grade Team Maryland National Championship Team for Football University.  Davon Williams and Frederick Cooper both played on the 8th Grade Team Maryland Squad that made it to the elite 8.  Mohamed Ibrahim was one of the top players on the vaunted Hamilton Tiger program out of Baltimore.  The Stallions had incentive to beat the Stars for a variety of reasons, but feeling like those 4 should have been on their side of the field was additional motivation.

On Baltimore’s first possession, they struck quickly with sensational TB Terrell Smith, who burst on the scene last week in electrifying fashion.  QB Everette Jefferson send Smith in motion, and then into a flare pattern out of the backfield.  He hit him in stride on the lateral and Smith went to work.  He caught the ball at the Stallion 38 yard line, got a great block for his receiver on the DB, cut inside, bounced outside and turned on the burners.  The kid Davon Williams was coming from the backside corner and tearing up that angle.  Smith can fly, but so can Williams.  Williams stopped a TD by forcing Smith to try to cut back at the 10, where he was tackled.  Penalties pushed the Stallions back to their 25 yard line before that man Davon started to dominate the game on defense.  The receiver tried to go deep on Williams, which just can’t happen.  Jefferson laid the pass up, Williams was in perfect position and leaped high into the air for the textbook INT at the 5 yard line.

The Star OL led by Sean Cowboy McCutcheon, another 7th Grade National Champion and his crew.  Big Jeremy Mensah had a bruising run up the middle.  Then Ibrahim got a chance to show off some of his blazing speed on a sweep around the right side that pushed the ball all the way to the Stallion 30 yard line.  The Stars were playing without GYFL Alum and 8th Grade FBU All Star TB Darius Golston, but they did not need him on this day.  The first quarter ended with a 0 – 0 score.  The Stars feature a 7th Grade QB Trent Jackson that comes all the way from the Eastern Shore to practice 3 days a week.  The kid is 6’, 160 pounds and he is very accurate.  He was throwing strikes all over the field and coaches better take a serious look at this kid or they will be sorry.  His growth from week 1 to week 2 was spectacular and you can see the game slowing down right before his eyes.  The 13 years old QB hit Frederick Cooper in stride on a quick post.  Cooper broke a tackle and used his strength and speed to muscle his way down inside the 20 yard line of the Stallions.   As soon as the praise for Jackson started to mount, he made a 7th grade mistake in the red zone and threw a pick to Antwaun Campbell, who thwarted the drive for the Stars.

Two plays later, on pressure from the Stars defense, Jefferson fumbled the ball and it was scooped up by another 8th Grade FBU All Star Swaid Belt.  Belt ran it in for the first TD of the game, on the 2nd Stallion turnover of the first half to make the score 6 – 0 Stars.   On the next possession, the Stallions were moving the chains when a fumble on the exchange that was recovered by Devin Miller at the Stallion 45 gave the ball right back to the Stars.  Big FB Jeremy Mensah, who is only a 7th grader banged out another big run up the middle to get the ball down to the 20 of the Stallions.  Mensah is already 5’11” and 215lbs.  He is not to be messed with.  The kid is a runaway freight train with ankles and goggles.   To make up for his errant pass in the red zone on the previous drive, Jackson threw two strikes to Williams and silky smooth receiver Cody Wilburn that were both dropped, and the Stallions kept the Stars out of the end zone for a second consecutive time.  As the Stars were beginning to learn, it is virtually impossible to run the ball anywhere in the vicinity of the “Man Beast” Jamal Shearin.  This kid is just special as a DT.  Can anyone say Warren Sapp?  Shearin looks like a middle school version of Sapp, who was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame.  Keep your eye out for this kid as he will be decimating a high school football league near you in a couple of years.

The Stallions had already committed 3 turnovers at this point in the game and were about to commit the 4th.  Jefferson dropped back into the short gun in his end zone and the pressure was coming from all around.  He was carrying the ball loosely as he tried to avoid the rush and one of the Stars got their paw on it.  Jefferson fumbled and the Miller recovered in the end zone for the TD, making the score 14 – 0 Stars with 2 minutes left in the half, after a successful XP.  The Stallions made a QB change, but to no avail.  Swaid Belt blitzed and sacked the QB and forced a fumble that was recovered by another8th Grade FBU All Star Cameron Goode.  The Stars were back in business.  Jackson connected on another frozen rope post pass to Cooper, then Ibrahim made a great escape move in the backfield to avoid a defender before diving into the end zone for the score.  The extra point was good and the Stars were leading 22 – 0 as the first half came to a close after a nice run and spin move by Tyrek Alston of Baltimore.

There was not a lot of action in the 3rd quarter.  A muffed punt was recovered by Karl Mofor of the Stars.  Then Brayden Pierce, another 8th Grade FBU All Star and Chesapeake Bowl alum, broke off a powerful run.  Jackson hit Cooper on a fly pattern up the right side.  He made the leaping 20 yard catch, then roughed off the defender to gain another 5 yards.  Jackson then hit Cooper on a drag pattern across the field that he used his speed to get the ball down inside the 10 yard line as the 3rd quarter came to a close.  Two plays later, Pierce powered his way into the end zone with tacklers draped all over him to score again and put the game out of reach.  That TD made the score 28 – 0 Stars.

In the middle of the 4th quarter, that kid Davon Williams struck again.  He made an unbelievable interception while he was lying on his back.  He had the WR covered like glue when the pass arrived.  He leaped up and tipped the ball as he fell to his back.  Then he caught the ball as he lay on the ground for his second INT of the day.  Williams may be one of the best 8th grade cover corners to come through the GYFL since its inception.  GYFL alum Karl Mofor then got into the interception parade with an acrobatic one handed pick and run back.  Next, Williams ran a reverse around the left side and showed us that he could do it on offense too.  Great speed around the left sideline inside the Stallion 30 yard line.

Next it was Keith Felton getting into the act from the backfield.  He shook a defender in the backfield, slipped up the middle and carried a defender for about 5 yards.  The Stars just keep coming with the athletes.  The Stars finished off the scoring for the day on the arm of backup QB Terrell Blount.  From the 30 yard line, Blount had the fleet footed Chesapeake Bowl Alum Cody Wilburn streaking towards the end zone and hit him with a perfect bomb.  He outran the DB, caught it in stride and put the last 6 points of the game on the board for the Stars.  With a little over 2:00 left, the Stars were on top 36 – 0.  What a way to end the game for the QB Blount.  Beautiful ball pass and catch.

On the last possession of the game, Felton broke through and recorded a big sack on Jefferson.  The game ended with that final score.

Game #5 Fairfax County Colts vs District of Columbia Warriors
This game go out of hand pretty quickly as well.  Fairfax County was coming off of a big victory in week #1 and was feeling confident.  The Warriors squeaked by the Swarm in week #1 and were looking to get back on track offensively.  Colt QB Tyrone Crabb completed his first pass of the day on a tight spiral to Matthew Pidgeon, but he was unable to convert the first down and the Colts had to punt it away.  The kid Crabb has some of the best mechanics on a QB that you will see as an 8th grader.  He is a very impressive prospect who reads defenses well and can make all of the throws.

On the punt return, a glimpse of what was to come was seen.  If you are a Grassroots regular you should know this name.  If you are new to the family, please get familiar with Delonte Hellams Jr.  The call him “Little Lody”, but his play is anything but little.  He is a two time FBU All Star Selection.  He is a two time GYFL All Star.  He has great height at 6’0”.  He is fast, and he has hands like glue.  He is a big time prospect who is on his way to DeMatha in the fall to join a star studded class.  We did not know that Lody was a punt returner as well, but we found out quickly.  On the first punt of the day, he caught it at his own 35 yard line, split a pack of 3 Colts defenders, turned on the jets, stiff armed a defender, got to the sidelines and brought it all the way back to the Colts 30 yard line.

Fairfax Colt Mario Bonilla opened up the series with the Big Stick on the ball carrier for a loss.  We were impressed with the arm of QB Keonte Johnson in last week’s game as he filled in for the injured Javonte “Moo Moo” Howard, who is a flame thrower of a QB.  On the 2nd play from scrimmage, Johnson showed us what he could do with his feet.  He sprinted out around the right end, accelerated into the secondary, made a move, and before we knew it, he was in the end zone for the first 6 points of the day.

After a fumble on the kickoff that was recovered by the Warriors, they were back on the move. This time, Johnson showed us his arm on a beautiful 31 yard pass right down the seam to an open Sean Savoy.  Savoy is a two time GYFL Alum with great speed and quickness.  He is a do-everything type of athlete who can play multiple positions on both sides of the ball.  He made the grab at the 5 and quickly converted it to six points.  The score was 12 – 0 Warriors with 6:00 minutes left in the 1st quarter.  The Colts took over and moved the chains on the next possession behind the running of Asevion Coleman, who is a fantastic runner, but they turned over on downs.  On the Warriors first play on the next drive, Johnson was in the shotgun and found Lody in man for man coverage in the slot to the right with no safety over the top.  Next to him was John Johnson, who is another speedster.  Bad mistake.  He dropped back and let the bomb fly from his own 45 yard line.  The Johnson & Johnson connection was effective as John went up and grabbed it as he always does and converted to a runner.  He was finally brought down at the 11 yard line of the Colts. 

That is when Jahlil Puryear, who was the player of the game in week #1 took over defensively.  Puryear, made a big hit on a QB scramble to keep Johnson out of the end zone.  Then he made an even bigger 4th down stop on a run up the middle.  This kid is one to look out for.  He has an awesome motor and tremendous skill set on both sides of the ball.  Pure football player is Puryear.  The Colts opened up the next series with the Wildcat formation and Coleman handling the duties, but there was little running room and they were forced to punt again.  The kid they call Lody let the ball roll around at his own 45, scooped it up and started to the left.  He didn’t like what he saw so he reversed his field.  He picked up a couple of blocks and saw some daylight.  He hit the next gear and found the convoy.  55 yards later, he was in the end zone again for the 2nd game.  After Amani Talbot converted the extra point, the score was 19 – 0 Warriors, as the first quarter came to a close.

The 2nd quarter opened with a sack by Keonte Johnson, who also likes defense.  This time the Colts did not punt to Hellams and the Warriors took over on the Colt 44 yard line as the sun went down.  The next QB for the Warriors entered the game.  He is Damari Sumpter and his first play was an excellent scramble to avoid a sack.  He turned it into a first down.  After a sack by Mario Bonilla and Joe Calhoun, the Colts pressure on Sumpter was picking up and appearing to rattle him.  On the next play, he eluded the rush in the backfield and scrambled to his right.   He found the kid they call Lody double covered, but with Hellams that doesn’t mean much.  You just need to get the ball in position for him to make a play and consider it done.  Hellams was running a comeback to help his QB and Sumpter let it fly on the run from his 40 yard line.  Lody came back to it and jumped over the DB to catch it, turned up field, broke a tackle and sprinted into the end zone for his 3rd TD of the day.  The kid is nice!  The score was 25 – 0 with 6:00 left before the half.

Dominique Warren recorded a sack forth the Warriors.  Then Kiwane Pryor got another one.  Deon Jones put a monster hit on Coleman in the backfield to push the Colts backwards some more before they turned it over on downs with a bad snap.  Sumpter eluded another big rush to gain 26 more yards.  Then Keonte came back in the game and found Sean Savoy again streaking up the right sidelines into the end zone.  He hit him with another perfect pass for 6 more points.  The effort Johnson exhibited on the extra point attempt was worth the price of admission as he recovered a bad snap, broke about 5 tackles to get the point.  The score was 32 – 0 at this point and the rout was officially on.

When the Warriors got the ball back, Sumpter found Savoy one on one out of the spread and there was no way a LB was going to be able to run with him.  With no safety help over the top the LB was on an island by himself and got scorched.  Savoy blew past the defender, the pass was perfect, and the catch was made as he sped across the goal line.  The score was 39 – 0 at the half and the running clock was in effect.  Ty Crabb made a great move to slip through the line of scrimmage and move the chains on a 20 yard run.  Asaveon Coleman really impressed us though, because even in a game that was destined to be a defeat, this kid kept running hard like his life depended on it.  He is going to make some HS coach a happy man one day.  He has a heart of a lion. 

From the 45 yard line the Warriors took over and went upstairs one more time.  Sumpter had a streaking WR running past his DB on the left sideline.  We can’t make the jersey number out on the film because the sun was going down and it was dark, but as soon as we get the WR’s name, this post will be updated.  At the end of the day, it was a perfect pass and a beautiful 9 cut for the final TD of the game.  After the conversion run the score was 46 – 0 with 1 minute left in the 3rd quarter as the sun was going down.  As the horn blew to end the 3rd quarter, Aseveon was running back the kickoff as if the score was 0 – 0.  Coach Hairston and his staff have a group of kids that have no idea what the word quit means.  They fought all the way to the end. 

The lights at Wilson did not come on for some reason, but the game was long since over and we ended up calling the game due to darkness with about 3:00 left to avoid any unnecessary injuries.
