The day after we had 4 lopsided games out of 5 at the varsity level, we were a bit concerned about the JV games on Sunday.  We should not have been.  Those babies gave us our monies worth at Wilson HS for sure.  It was a spectacular day for the Grassroots Junior Varsity and we soaked it all in!

Game #1 Gorc Wildcats 13 vs Montgomery Village Chiefs 6
It started out with this game.  It was nip and tuck all through the contest.  Both teams have a ton of talent.  The Wildcats leaned on a diversified offensive scheme orchestrated by Phil Slye, who was the leader of the 6th grade FBU MD State Regional Champions.  He obliterated the region last Winter at Wilson in the FBU Tournament and picked up right where he left off with the Wildcats.  The competition was much stiffer and it was truly a nail biter.

Kevin Byrd is a young playmaking RB that can do it all for the Wildcats.  He has great size for a back, very good vision and good enough speed to take it to the house at any time.  He was not able to go nuts on the Montgomery Village Chiefs becuase they have a ton of speed and athletes on their side of the ball as well, so it was a dog fight.  Byrd and his offensive line were very impressive and he did score on the ground.  The converted QB Carlos Pearman was sensational.  The Pearman kid is just learning the QB position and was 7/8 for 100 yards with a TD.  He was accurate and deceptive and gave MV fits.  Byrd was more effective catching the ball out of the backfield in this game than rushing, but Dea Sean Winston was hard to contain through the air on this day with 38 yards recieving and a TD.  Defensively, Gereme Spraggins is just a menace.  He had 6 tackles on the day.  7th Grade FBU National Champion Olandis Gary Jr., chipped in 3 and was lights out on the goal line defense.  Corey Hunt had a big sack on the day.

MV has some playmakers to contend with as well.  Big TE/DE Jalen Lowry is a specimen with great genetics.  The QB Tyree Haynes is a very interesting prospect with the ability to run and throw.  Micah McNeil is a highlight reel waiting to happen and tried his best to pull the game out for MV with big and timely catches, but it was not enough as MV could not stop the precision offense of GORC from breaking the tie with an outstaning 4th quarter drive and TD pass to Winston for the go ahead score.  Final Score Gorc 13, MV 6.

Game #2 Marlboro Mustangs 2 vs Loudoun County Eagles 13

We don't have the statistics for this game yet, so we can't get as detailed into the write ups as we would like.  This game was a lot closer than the 13 - 2 score would indicate and also much more exciting than the score lets on.

We can confirm this much without looking at any stats..... LeRon West is a 6th grade Man Child.  This kid is absolutely spectacular and didn't single handedly win this game for the Eagles because they have a ton of talent.  They have some linemen that will take your breath away with their size and ability.  Jacob Peace, William Moore, and Austin Green are physical specimens.  They are extremely well coached on both sides of the ball.  Juan Castillo is a bulldozer of a fullback.  AJ Organ does a very good job running the team.  Finally, Val Timonshenko will be a star on any team.  With that being said, remember the name LeRon West!  He is flat out special.

He broke open a close game with an athletic interception and an exciting return for a touchdown that sealed the deal.  Watch out for the Eagles.

Marlboro was much improved from week #1 though and were right in this thing.  They have a QB Stan Askew that had a couple of interceptions on this game, but he is a player that can make all the throws. Very cerebral kid with a huge upside.  Tyrik Blount is an electrifying runner and receiver that had has DB beaten on a couple of plays but the QB's could not get the ball to him.  Look for him to have an impression final month of the season.  Deames Bynum was very solid on the day and has tremendous potential.  Marlboro just could not get there offense in sync, but defensively, they did an excellent job of slowing down the Eagle running game.  They just couldn't seem to get away from West, who put the game out of reach with the Int return.  The final in this one was Loudoun County 13 - Marlboro 2.

Players of the Game

Marlboro Mustangs: Deames Bynum
Loudoun County Eagles: Leron West


Game #3 Fairfax County Colts 0 vs DC Warriors 21
The score of the game was not close, but this was no walk in the park for the Warriors.  This is another game in which the stats have not been provided.  Parents, we need some of you to agree to volunteer to keep these stats if the coaches can't do it so that we can provide more detailed updates for you.

The Warriors tried to get the ball to Jermaine "OC" Johnson and had a bit of success, but the Colts made if difficult for them.  The Warriors moved the ball well on the ground, but were not able to convert to points because of the scrappy Colt defense that was relentless and fought to the end.  Yzreal Hall was a kid that jumped off the page for the Colts. 

Players of the Game

Fairfax County Colts: Yzreal Hall
DC Warriors: Tayon Lewis


Game #4  HC Stars vs Hamilton Tigers

This was the game of the year.  Probably should have been the Championship game, or it will be the championship game in about a month.  Superior athletes and elite coaches going head to head like warriors on the field of battle.  We have not seen a game dominated by 7th graders like this in quite some time.  The Stars have a number of 8th graders that are very good, but not good enough to play on the HC Stars Varsity team.  They met the age criteria and are eligible to play Junior Varsity.  The Tigers are almost exclusively a 7th grade team, with the exception of some younger players.  Both teams have 6th graders and the Tigers even have a few 5th graders, but the majority of these kids were 7th and 8th graders going at it like High School kids.  Experience has taught me that the way to get better is to play against better and older players and if that old attage is true, the Tigers are going to be something to reckon with when they get to the fall league.

Hamilton came out of the short end of the stick, but they have nothing to hang their heads about and everything to be proud of.  The Stars played a phenomenal game as well and it was 0 - 0 deep into the 4th quarter.  Hamilton's best player Jamaine Jeter was knocked out of the game with an ankle injury on an interception return, which hampered the Tigers running game.

The Stars hammered the Tigers all game long with Darius Harris at the TB position.  Michael Toler did a good job running the team and the Stars line is not huge, but very effective.  The moved the ball pretty well, but were unable to capitalize and score on the young, but tough Tigers.  Calvin Carroll is a beast on the interior line and was having none of that.  Both teams attacked each other on offense, but could not score.  The game was won late in the 4th quarter when an errant pass was picked off by Devan Hebron on the Hamilton side of the field.  He picked up a couple of great blocks, and before we knew it, he was sprinting into the endzone for the game winning score.  The Stars were jubilant as they should have been.  The Tigers were dejected as expected.  I would not be surprised if we saw round 2 of this slugfest in the Championship game on June 22nd.

Players of the Game

HC Stars: Devan Hebron
Hamilton Tigers: Zayhon Johnson
