God did His part again! It was another beautiful weather day for Grassroots. It was 82 degrees, with slight breeze that was strong enough to take out a tent that was not nailed down, and cool enough so that the cool zone tents on the sidelines were not really needed. We were at Spalding, which is truly one of the most phenomenal athletic facilities we get a chance to play at.

Before each game, we made a special announcement for and dedicated the games to, Mr. Mike Whittles. Mike recently passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was the head coach of the Spalding Varsity Football Team. More than being a great coach, he was a great father, and great friend, and a great man. He will be sorely missed, but Heaven picked up a big time angel and Mike will be holding spots for us when we all get there. Until then, we will play hard for Mike and keep his legacy alive.

It was a great day for football. We didn’t have as many High School coaches as usual because the University of Virginia and the University of Maryland were having big HS 7 on 7 tournaments. Many of our GYFL alums were showcasing their talents in front of college coaches for some of the top HS in the area. We still had a good number represented though. In addition to the HS coaches who are on the staffs of many of our teams like Wilson, Palotti, Woodgrove, Good Counsel, Friendship, DeMatha, Northwestern, and West Springfield, we still had a good number on hand.

The staff from Spalding was obviously there, but we also saw the Douglass HS staff in full force. Head Coach Lawrence Smith from Dunbar of Baltimore was in the building and fell in love with those Stallions from Baltimore.   We found out that Under Armour was going to be installing a brand new state of the art field turf facility for the Poets and the field will be silver, with burgundy and white lines! I can’t wait to see it and I am sure some of our kids will be playing on it. I know where we will be for our Baltimore home game next year.

The sight of the day though was seeing two Legendary Redskins on the sidelines. There was one Redskin great from the 80’s, GYFL Commissioner Rick “Doc” Walker. There was one Redskin great from the 2000’s, All Pro Lavar Arrington. Both of those guys have their own radio shows that actually come on at the same time and some may think they are competitors. But, when it comes to the love for these kids and the love for Grasssroots, WE ARE ONE!

We had a second chance to promote the most exciting Post Season Youth Football Tournament ever. For those of you who are not aware yet, we postponed our tryouts for the MD State All Star Teams that will participate in the Football University (FBU) Youth National Championship Tournament. We are going to hold them the morning or our Championship Game at Riverdale Baptist on July 21st.

For those that may not know what FBU is, it doesn’t get any bigger than FBU and for them to ask to partner with the GYFL is truly an honor and a blessing for us and for your kids. FBU owns the Eastbay 7th and 8th Grade All American Games. They run some of the most premiere football camps in the country that culminate with their famous Top Gun Camp in July. They own the US Army All American Game which Is played on NBC in January of every year. That game is the granddaddy of HS All Star Games. It was the first of it’s kind and is the standard bearer.

FBU’s newest property is the National Championship Tournament which features 64 teams from states all across the country. Some large states have multiple teams like Florida and California. There is only 1 team for the state of Maryland and GYFL is selecting it. We will play in a March Madness style 64 Team Tournament with the Final Four being played in San Antonio. The Championship Games will be played in the Alamodome right after the US Army All American Game in January of 2013. The tournament begins in late November and runs through early to mid December so it does not conflict with the youth football season. We are just beginning early with the evaluation period. We will have a team of 35 kids on our 6th grade team, another 35 kids on our 7th grade team, and an additional 35 kids on our 8th grade team.

Last year, our 8th grade team was phenomenal. It was made of many of the 7th graders who played in the 2011 Grassroots season. We expect to have our best current 7th graders on the 2012 8th grade team, but you still must try out.   Last winter, we played a tough Virginia State team and beat the breaks off of them 42 - 6.  Then we faced an even tougher New York State Team and beat them 42 - 20.  We were one game away from the Final 5 in San Antonio Texas before we got beaten in Massachusetts by their state team on cold and wintry day. To see the games, click here.

For my current 7th graders, 6th graders, and 5th graders, along with any other youth athletes who want to test themselves against the best, tryouts for the 2012 Teams will be held on Saturday July 21st at Riverdale Baptist School 1133 Largo Road Upper Marlboro MD 20774 from 10am to 2pm.  Click here for a link to the detailed information, which will take you to the registration page.  You do not want to miss this guys.  Calling on Renaud, calling on Beander, calling on Lea, calling on Golston, and calling all 5th, 6th, and 7th, grade ballers!

In addition to the FBU teams, Junior Rank has asked us to select their MD State teams that will compete in their inaugural Youth 7 on 7 Tournament to be held in Los Angeles in conjunction with their HS All Star Game the Semper-Fidelis All American, which is sponsored by the Marines. Junior Rank also has a 7th Grade All American Game and an 8th Grade All American game. You guys didn’t realize that Grassroots was the key to future but it is. Once we lock in fully with Under Armour, we will have influence with all 3 HS All American Games, which is insane.

By the way, after we perform for Under Armour in late July and August we should have no problem securing that relationship. Lavar Arrington has brokered a deal to basically consult and advise the youth football division of Under Armour and Lavar has partnered with us to execute. During the latter part of July and early August, Lavar and Under Armour want to put on a series of 5 tackling clinics in conjunction with Lavar’s company Xtreme Procision (see www.xtremeprocision.com).  

Lavar has the technology and the products to revolutionize the safety of football, and Grassroots has the kids and the relationships with the high schools needed to pull this off. Soon, we will be announcing the 5 dates for the clinics and registration pages will be set up. The tackling clinics will be for kids ages 7 – 14 and will be phenomenal.   Oh, by the way, did I mention that they will be FREE! Yes I said it…..Free. We are working on the logistics now so stay tuned. We hope to have WPGC on board to promote and do live remotes from the trainings. Stay tuned!!! Grassroots never sleeps.

Before I get into the write ups I must take a moment to get you parents to understand what it at stake and how important this period of time is for your sons. If your son is going to a HS that is a good fit for him and you are excited about it, then we are just as excited for you. But, I get calls all the time from coaches from top schools who are still looking for talent for the upcoming freshman class. It is great for us to put the film up on the website for the coaches to look at and many of them do. But, I am a person that believes in going to a battle with a loaded gun. I want to have every angle covered in all that I do. For you guys not to have a highlight video in this current climate is playing Russian roulette with your child’s future as far as I am concerned.

These games are producing some of the most powerful footage that your child could have and it is very valuable. Not all coaches want to watch an entire 30 minute game to see a kid. What they want is a high quality highlight tape to grab their attention. Then, if they like what they see, they will have the incentive to want to watch a whole game or series of games. There is not a child in this league that shouldn’t have a highlight tape. I am not telling you this to get into your pockets and make money. I am telling you because I know the dreams that you have for your children and the highlight tape is the beginning of the building of a resume. If you don’t have one, it is like going to a job interview without a resume. It is not a good idea.

It is something that you will need for the next level, even if you have the high school of your dreams. In this era, getting to the right football camps are just as important as getting into the right high school. Many of the top camps are invite only and they organizers want to see footage of a kid before they extend the invite. They will not watch a whole game. Rivals wants highlight tapes. FBU wants highlight tapes. Jr Rank wants highlight tapes. So does MD High, etc. My point is that you need to begin building the resume now and it starts with a high quality highlight tape with footage against top quality competition. Your child will play in at least 9 games this GYFL season and you need to make that investment. The videographer that tapes all of our games is Mohamed Fahs and he is the best in the business.

The second thing I want to share with you is the perfect and most effective way to market your video. You can make DVD’s, you can post on you tube, etc. The best way to get your video seen and marketed is to have it hosted right on the GYFL website. We are the place where the coaches are going to come. You need to take advantage of our GYFL Player profile option. Mo can prepare the DVD for you, but the GYFL player profile is how you want to present it. I had a prominent coach call me today and say “Mike, I need some lineman man.”

I told him that I had plenty of linemen in the league and to go look at the games online. He said he tries his best but he doesn’t have the time to sit and watch all the games at once. Imagine if I had 10 linemen who had highlight videos that were posted on GYFL Player profiles. I could send him right to my Player profile section give him the regions and the names and tell him to learn about the kid for themselves. There he could find the 5 minute tape, letters of recommendation, verified statistics, honors and awards, transcripts if necessary, standardized test scores, and a host of other detailed information about the kids that you can’t put on you tube. There has never been a product like this for kids a this age and there has never been an opportunity for you sons like there is now.

This is not about making money for me. I do this for passion, but it does cost to produce all of this stuff and we must charge a fair and reasonable fee. Our fees are comparable with any other service available and less expensive and more cost effective than most.   If you can’t afford both, at least invest in the highlight video. You will need to purchase the games, and pay a fee for the preparation. If you can afford the player profile you might find yourself saving thousands of dollars in tuition every year just by making a small and powerful investment.

Anyway………..to the action.

Game #1: Prince William County 32, Southern MD 0

{webplayer video=images/stories/videos/2012-wk6-game-1.f4v}

We called the day Judgment day and did so for a reason. We needed to find out some things about some teams and today was the day that we knew we could because the matchups were so even. This was the battle of winless teams with 0-5 records.

We had seen a lot of guts and determination from Southern MD during the season, but we had not seen their offense show the ability to consistently move the ball and score. They had only scored 6 points on the season offensively and have failed to stop anybody on defense.

We have seen Petey run well when he had a crease, but he has not had very many. We have seen the same thing for Jhordan Greene and Brando Beavers when there has been room to run. We have seen short spurs from QB Jessiah Rojas and Deandra Bush, but there has been no consistency or anything to lead us to believe that they could be competitive consistently in this league.   Playing against another 0-5 team should have given them the opportunity to make a statement, but they couldn’t get it done.

From the first combine, we thought Prince William had talent and would surprise some people. Being new to the league we couldn’t predict what they would do, but we knew they had some size and we knew they had some athletes. They have 3 of the biggest and most physically imposing receivers that are on any of the teams. Kameron Kyles (unfortunately is out for the season with a broken foot), is a big and fast target that can get it done. Eric Kumah looks like a HS WR already with a tremendous physique and great athleticism. Dominic Benson is another WR that looks the part.

We have not been able to see their talent on display because the offense has just not been able to get anything going. As we know, it all starts in the trenches and they have been losing those battles every week. Here is the caveat that most people didn’t realize. We have 5 monster teams in the league this year, bar none. Baltimore Metro, Charles County, DC, Howard County, and Montgomery are sure fire, elite teams. Then we have a series of good teams, that are not elite, but when they play each other, they make for some great, competitive football. Fairfax County, Loudoun County, PG County, and Prince William County are good football teams.   Every time each one of them play each other, we have pretty good games. We needed to find out today if Prince William belonged in that 2nd tier or not……. Well, they belong!

They jumped all over Southern MD and never looked back. The Wildcats had plenty of fight in them and we are so proud of them and love them. Derrick Easter (Solomons Steelers/Patuxent) played a whale of a game. QB Jessiah Rojas (Owings Outlaws/Ryken) shows us how much heart and guts he has. He took a good shot on the leg and was helped off the field. He limped through the rest of the game, but the key was that he showed his teammates leadership and played with pain. He is going to be a good one at Ryken. Dejuan Marble (Owings Outlaws/Huntingtown) and Randy Burke (Prince Frederick/Calvert) did a solid job on the line.

Jhordan Greene (Prince Frederick/Calvert) made some tough catches over the middle for the Wildcats and two-time GYFL All Star Rylan Sweetney was tough as always. Petey Thomas (Pax River/Ryken) does what he always does and plays all out every single play every single game. Brandon Beavers (Mechanicsville/Chopticon) put in another good effort for the Wildcats, but it wasn’t enough.

The Lions roared today. It actually came at a good time for me because I was starting to lose credibility by telling everyone how excellent I thought the talent was down there.   The truth is there is talent down there and people saw it on display yesterday. The problem is that the caliber of competition that is in the GYFL is not present during the traditional fall football season. During the Fall, the talent is there, but it is spread out all over 20 or 30 youth programs and middle schools. The talent is not all concentrated on one team like it is the GYFL and kids are not accustomed to that next level talent week after week after week. We not only have All Star teams, but we have All Star Coaching staffs as well.

When you play the Bearcats you have the best Olney, and the best of Montgomery Village. You also have a DeMatha assistant on the staff and you have to deal with the Good Counsel freshman and Varsity assistant coaches. When you see Howard County you are seeing Varsity defensive coordinators and Head youth football coaches from some of the best youth programs in northern PG County and Howard County. When you face PG you are going against a 9 year NFL veteran and freshman coach from Friendship Collegiate. Each staff is loaded with coaches and many of them are loaded with top quality players.

Unfortunately for Prince William County, not only were they a brand new franchise who lost the Hylton Coaching staff the week before the season started and had to scramble to get the new staff ready. They also had to get accustomed to the speed, depth of players and coaches. They have a strong coaching staff themselves but had no time to prepare. The biggest issue for them was that they literally opened the season up with the 5 best teams in the league consecutively. They opened with Charles County, and then they had Baltimore Metro, then Montgomery County, then Howard County, and finally DC. That is called Murderers Row ladies and gentlemen and they may have had a hard time with that gauntlet if Joe Gibbs was their coach!

They had to be licking their chops to get a game with Southern MD, and the good news for them is that their final 3 games are against teams that are in that 2nd tier of teams, so they should have a chance to win each game.

Coach Eric Levenberry brought in the freshman coach from West Springfield to install the spread offense which would allow the tremendous athletes that the Lions have to get involved in the offense.   After only 2 days of practice last week, it did not look good against the reigning champion DC Warriors, but it looked like a well oiled machine against the Wildcats.

Brandon Pitt (Woodbridge) was phenomenal on the day and looked comfortable throwing to has bevy of talented receivers. He lost Kameron Kyles (Woodbridge) to the foot injury early, but he connected on the long ball to Dominic Benson (Woodbridge) and a long scoring pass down the right sideline. Benson is a long, lean receiver with great hands and speed. He had a chance to show the whole package on that catch and run.

However, the day belonged to WR Eric Kumah (Hylton). Kumah was insane on this day from the receiver position and I can assure you that he and his parents are not dissatisfied with this new offense. I don’t have the stats in front of me yet and when I get them I will update the post but I saw him catch at least 3 TD’s and he may have caught 4 on the day. He showed great route running, great hands, great speed, great strength, and great concentration. His last TD should have been an interception as the Wildcat DB had great coverage and got his hands on the ball. It tipped into the air; Kumah kept his eye on the ball, caught it and headed the end zone again. I can’t wait to get the video up so I can review the performance in detail. Pitt did a great job all day getting him the ball, but he made the plays and made me look good. Keep your eye on Kumah at the next level!

Brandon Hilton (Osborne Park) was sensational again. This time he did it from his punt return position. Each time he got his hands on the ball he looked like it was going to the house. He is an electrifying football player that will make coaches say, forget about a kids size and measurable. I want to see his heart and see him in pads. Once we have the film and stats we will do a more detailed write up and we need that to really identify the work of the linemen. We know that Jonte Craig (Woodbridge) has been playing very well and the Brooks boys have been lights out (Marcus and Shawn/Forest Park).   Nick Arnold (Stonewall) saw time as the QB position and was effective.

7th Grader Keith Evans continues to show great promise, as does Nasheed Hargrove (Hylton) and the Hazou brothers (Issa and Juan/Woodbridge). Kendrick Key (Garfield) and C.J. Childs (Forest Park) continue to put in solid performances and it was good to see all of those kids leave with smiles on their faces for a change.

Our prime time player for Prince William County this week was QB Brandon Pitt, but it just as easily could have been Eric Kumah. They were both fabulous. For Southern MD it was the old favorite DeMartez “Petey” Thomas, who is just an amazing football player who always goes hard and brings it every play.

Game #2: Loudoun County 12, Fairfax County 6

{webplayer video=images/stories/videos/2012-wk6-game-2.f4v}

 

This one actually lived up to its billing. It was a slugfest. The Eagles didn’t have their starting QB Damani Neal (7th Grader), so they went old school with the good ole wing T Offense. It shocked all of us on the sidelines, but the Fairfax coaches didn’t get alarmed. Their defense held it in check for most of the day. Charlie Clewis (Woodgrove) did slip through for one long run, but he wasn’t able to score and for the most part, both teams held each other in check on the defensive side.

If you like a lot of exciting offense, this was not the game for you. If you like good ole fashioned hard nose football, with plenty of defense, this was your game. This one should have been played in the mud with no facemasks, because it was that old school. We loved it.

Again, I don’t have the stats and without a ton of big plays, there is not a whole lot to write about until we can review the film, but it was a tough game with the Loudoun County offensive line narrowing their splits and hammering at the Fairfax County defensive line. Michael Sheehan (Woodgrove), Daniel Renaud (7th Grader), Johnny Jordan (7th Grader), Malik Crowe (Potomac Falls), Noel Hijazi (St. Johns), and Hunter Smith (Woodgrove) just banging on the Colts. Charlie Clewis (Woodgrove) and Meech Hembry (7th Grader) got the bulk of the carries. Gunner Hilling (Woodgrove) is a great run blocker who paved the way for the running backs to gobble up yardage.

One of the unsung heroes for the Eagles is TE/OL Brent Smith (Heritage).  Brent is an absolute stud at 6'3" who has been a consistent and dominant presence on the OL for the Eagles every game this year.  He will be TE in High School, but plays on the OL for Loudoun County.  We haven't shown him the love that he has deserved yet this season and we want to make sure that we rectify that.  Unfortunately, it is not easy to capture all of the deserving kids with so many kids in the league and not a lot of help, it gets challenging.  We appreciate you all being patient with us.  The good is that with a 9 week season, we have enough opportunities to get it right and we will continue to do our best.  We can't just write about every kid for the sake of writing and we understand that every parent wants their child to get noteriety.  However, in cases like Brent Smith were he is a legimate football player who has produced, we appreciate the chance to get it right.  Smith is the real deal.

With the score 6 – 0 Loudoun County, Max Gallahan (Springfield/St. Stephens) made the big play for the Colts, who were playing without two of their best players. We have not confirmed this and until we do we won’t comment, but if they did quit on their team I will not be promoting them on this website so their names will not be mentioned until we have confirmation one way or the other. We are going to support and promote the kids that play for their teammates, their coaches and for pride, no matter what the score is or what the records are.

Anyway, Gallahan scooped up a short kickoff, made few moves and broke into the open. The next thing we knew, Max was on the left sideline sprinting towards the end zone for six. We knew Max was a heck of a football player, but he showed another gear that we didn’t know he had.   The score was tied at 6 – 6 and stayed that way deep in the 3rd quarter when a little 6th grade baller named Taron Vincent showed up on the scene. We had been hearing about t his kid for about 8 months. You guys may have heard of his dad. He is 15 year NFL veteran an a member of the 75th Anniversary football team which is a who’s who of the best football players to ever play. He will be a Hall of Famer one day and his name is Troy Vincent.   His older son Troy Jr. played for Loudoun County in our inaugural season and we had an opportunity to see the gene pool at work. Word is that the baby could be………. Nope, let me stop. The Vincent’s are some of the most humble people you will ever meet and I am not even going to put that kind of pressure on this kid. But, suffice it to say……. He is very good already!

The young fella made the play of the game as he broke through the line on a punt by Fairfax. Not only does he block the punt, but he recovered it and carried it into the end zone for the TD. It took all of the momentum away from the struggling Colts who played valiantly without 2 of their best players. Fairfax was unable to score again, but the defense was stout again and gave the offense every opportunity to convert, but they could not get it done.   Jordan Napper (Undecided) was outstanding on defense for the Colts from his LB position. Hunter Wilkens (Ft. Belvoir/Undecided) was solid once again, as was Max Nail (Ft. Hunt/West Potomac) and Ozzie Opuku (Gum Springs/Undecided).   Whenever I see the word undecided by a potentially great player it only makes me wonder how much a player profile and a highlight video could help that kid. Aaron Ince (Ft. Hunt/O’Connell) made an unbelievable strip of a player and fumble recovery to thwart a Loudoun County drive.

Prime time player for Fairfax was Max Gallahan, and for Loudoun was Taron Vincent.

Game #3: Montgomery County 20, District of Columbia 14

{webplayer video=images/stories/videos/2012-wk6-game-3.f4v}

 

This game was worth the price of admission. It amazes me how some folks will pay $5.00, have the opportunity to stay and watch a game like this and they don’t stay. This was transition league football at its very best. If my son played in the 9am game and got blown out, I still would have stayed for this one! It was worth the wait. It was everything that we thought it would be.

It was a re-match of the championship game last year, which was won by DC, and I think it was a much better game from end to end. The Bearcats made a big comeback in that championship game and made it exciting at the end, but this one was exciting from beginning to end. The game wasn’t decided until the last minute.

DC was without their starting QB DeWayne Shorter on the day but they don’t make excuses. Their backup is very a very capable 7th Grader named Anthony Brown who is going to be a good one. He impressed us at the jamboree and has played well at times in relief of Shorter, who is a converted QB. Brown is still a work in progress and with hard work and commitment he will develop nicely. He is in the capable hands of QB guru Maurice “Bink” Vaughn. This was going to be a tough game to earn his stripes though.

We can’t say enough about the Bearcats. Every time we predict a loss for them they prove us wrong. They have a 6th grade QB that has been under fire all season long and come through in all the big games with timely throws. Former DeMatha star RB Delonte Morton was on hand helping us out. He enjoyed the first two games, but I told him to put his seatbelt on because it was going to Big Boy football for the rest of the day. These two teams were going to leave it on the field and they did just that.

The big and powerful Bearcat offensive line did what they do, which was go to work on the smaller but quick Warrior defensive line.   The Bearcats come with the studs. Mike Drolet is still out with an injured leg, but Kyle Loughner (Rockville Lions/Good Counsel), Charlie Siarkas (Rockville Rams), Cody Peterson (Montgomery County Cowboys), Jalen Lea (Montgomery Village/7th Grader) anchor an offensive line that some high schools would kill for. Big Craig Cissel has stepped in and played well for the Bearcats. We love Jack Stubbs as (Damascus/Good Counsel) well who does a great job at the guard position.

The Warriors were battling back hard with two time GYFL All Stars Darrin Pullen (Beacon House/Friendship) and Donnell Lowery (White Oak/Undecided) leading the charge. They got pressure from Phillip Morgan Jr (Johnson JHS/Undecided), Deon Jones (Ward 5 Warriors/Archbishop Carroll) and Swaid Belt (White Oak/7th Grader).   Antonio Favors is back from a concussion and better than ever (Patuxent Rhinos/Friendship), but they couldn’t stop two time GYFL All Star and super star TB Daqwan Hill (Montgomery Village/Good Counsel) from dipping and popping outside to give the Bearcats their first TD.

The Bearcats got their second score of the game on a hitch pass for QB Doc Bonner (Maplewood/6th Grader) to two-time GYFL All Star Travon Stott, who having a spectacular season for the Bearcats. We love it when a plan comes to fruition. Stott and his younger brother Tremayne showed up at our first Montgomery County combine two years ago and caught our eye.   Tremayne was just a 5th grader at the time and we could see he had potential, but Trevon was ready to rock and just needed a platform to explode from. He plays for the Mighty Montgomery Village Chiefs in the fall and they have taught him so well. We have the pleasure of being able to showcase him to an even bigger audience. His baby brother is a 6th grader on the time and has two more years to dazzle the crowds of the GYFL. Stott caught the pass got to the sideline and turned on his considerable jets for the Bearcats second score.

Right before the half Brown began to get more comfortable with the passing game and he calmed down and began to hit his receivers. C.J. Rainey had done an excellent job running the ball when he had creases and FBU All Star Richard Merritt (Undecided), Mike Williams (Maryland Bison/Wilson), Lawtez Rogers (New Carrolton/7th Grader), and the rest of the at DC line did a good job of protecting Brown and finding room for Rainey.

That was not easy to do against this defense though. Izon Pulley (Montgomery Village/Good Counsel) controls offensive lines and applies relentless pressure. David Sangwa (Silver Spring/Kennedy) is a big time LB who make plays from sideline to sideline and never met a hit he didn’t like. Charles McNeary (Montgomery Village/Watkins Mill) is his carbon copy. Joey Freeman (Rockville Bears/Gonzaga) rounds out an elite LB crew when you add Hill to the corps. Jalen Lea (Montgomery Village/7th Grader) looks and plays like a 10th grader. He is a force in the middle.

As the half wore down, Brown finally connected with FBU All Star Delonte Hellams Jr., who is putting together and record breaking season. He made the tough catch over the middle, then caught the TD to close the gap before the half.

The second half was another slug fest with adjustments made by both teams. The biggest adjustment was not one that was made at the half, but one that was made during practice. The Warriors have found some special teams ladies and gentlemen, and they have found them big time. At a crucial time late in the Game with the Warriors down 14 – 6, Deon Jones lined up to punt, which is something that we hadn’t seen done in the first 3 years by the Warriors. This time, the kid unleashed a cannon of a punt that travelled about 60 yards pinning the Bearcats deep in their own territory! The crowd was in shock and it forced me to go to the DC Sideline to find out what the heck was going on!

The Warriors took the momentum and the pressure was squarely on the arm of the young QB who had never been tested. Would he rise to the occasion or would he buckle under the pressure? The kid came out and hit his receiver Deon Jones over the middle and he began to streak down the middle of the field with great speed. Had it not been for the equally great speed of the Bearcat DB’s, he would have scored. FBU All Star Patrick Johnson (Watkins/Undecided) tried to throw a block but Cedric Content (Montgomery County Cowboys/Blake) made a great play as Juron Woodyard (Montgomery Village/Watkins Mill gave chase). Brown made a bigh throw to Hellams who came back catch the ball.  He had his feet in the end zone, but as he leaned back to catch the ball his hands and the ball were at the 1 yard line.  The Warrior coaches thought it was a TD, but it was not.

Shortly after, the Warriors scored on a short QB sneak by Brown to make it 14 – 12 late in the game, but with no way to kick a two point conversion, they would still need another possession. Hold up a minute. The Warriors lined up to kick the ball and a few seconds later.  John Gant IV (Pataxent Rhinos) lined up to kick the 2 point conversion and the crowd was stunned.  Moments later, the refs put their arms in the air signaling it was good!!! The crowd went wild…… The Warriors sidelines went wild. Nobody could believe it. Not only were they punting now, but kicking field goals. It was unbelievable. This is not youth football guys! This is Big Boy football.

The Warriors had all the momentum now and with a little over 2 minutes left on the clock they went for an onside kick to catch the Bearcats off guard. The Bearcats were not caught off guard though and 7th grade phenom DB Carlton Taylor (Montgomery Cowboys/Gilman) scooped the ball up and took it back inside of DC Territory around the 40 yard line. After a couple of stops the Warriors were called for a costly facemask penalty which pushed the ball inside their 25 yard line. That is when the star of last week’s game Jonathan Lee (White Oak/Good Counsel got the ball up the middle behind a good block by Siarkas and lead blocker Jonathan Wanat (Silver Spring Saints/Good Counsel), shook the LB , turned on the burst of speed, and broke the Warriors hearts right up the gut. TD Bearcats.

The Warriors had one more chance to come down and tie it up, but the Bearcat defense stood tall and stopped them. Game over!

It was a great game for sure, but afterwards, I received some disturbing news. I was informed that the Warriors have pretty much stopped coming to practice. 13 players on Wednesday…… 6 players on Friday. Are you kidding me? That is totally unacceptable and if the commitment is not going to be there to come to practice, they don’t deserve to be rewarded with a win. The same goes for all of the kids and coaches throughout the league. This is serious business guys. It is not a game out there. There is a lot n the line. Futures are being changed in GYFL every week. Destinies are being changed. Lessons are being learned and the biggest lesson that kids need to learn at this level is that nothing comes easy and you get what you work for.

The Warriors are some of the most talented kids that I have seen in my life and I love them and the coaches dearly. But, if they are not going to commit to practice then they might as well give up the crown right now. They may not even make the playoffs at this rate. Montgomery County is practicing. Howard County is practicing. Charles County is practicing. That is why you see them destroying people the last couple of weeks. They had their issues with practice early in the season when their heads got big because everyone told them how good they were and how talented they were. They were very talented, but you can have a bunch of talented players and not be a good football team.

One of the blessings for the Warriors is that we now have a legitimate All Star Team. In the first two years it was primarily a Beacon House team with a few additions. Maybe they could have gotten away with less practice because they all came up in the system and knew it like the back of their hands. That is not the case now. We have kids from multiple programs and junior high schools that haven’t mastered the system. You must get to practice and you must take it seriously if you want to have a chance to repeat. If you don’t, Howard County is going to get up in that you know what on Saturday in your back yard (Wilson HS) and you will find yourselves 4 -3, with Baltimore still on the schedule.

That is all I will say on this matter, but I can assure every team in this league. There are no cakewalks for anybody and you better bring to every practice, not just to every game, if you want to come out victorious. If I find out that kids are still missing practice, I will make it point not to spend hours upon hours doing write ups and putting picture up to get you this exposure. If you are not going to take it seriously, let me know so I won’t waste my time.

The prime time player for DC was Anthony Brown. The prime time player for Montgomery was Carlton Taylor.

Game #4: Charles County 46, Prince Georges County 7

{webplayer video=images/stories/videos/2012-wk6-game-4.f4v}

 

As we said, this was judgment day. Both teams came in with 3 – 2 records and on 3 game winning streaks and this game was going to go a long way and telling us where these teams really stood. The winner would be right in the thick of the race for a playoff spot. The loser would not be mathematically eliminated, but they would need a lot of help to get into the playoffs.

 

It started off with at bang or the Swarm. In our picture gallery last week, we highlighted James Green (Forestville Boys Club/Forestville HS) with a caption “Finally Getting His Due.” James is an elite athlete who has slipped under the radar. He is the type of kid that Grassroots was made for. It is great for all kids. The 5 Star caliber kids that everyone knows about can have a coronation party in the Grassroots league and confirm his ranking against the best of the best. Kids like “Lo Lo” Harrison from the Warriors, who everyone knows, sells tickets for us because people want to see him play. Same deal with Steven Smothers from Baltimore, Daqwan Hill from Montgomery and Trevon Diggs from PG. Those kids were already household names with or without Grassroots.

But it is kids like James Green who people never heard of and didn’t know about. Well…… now you know. This kid is the real deal. Great athlete with great speed and toughness. He runs hard and his very explosive. He is a one cut and go kid. Does not do a lot of dancing in the hole. On the first play from scrimmage he got the handoff up the middle, made one quick move and he was in the secondary. He got great blocks from fullback Keven Thomas (Undecided), massive OL Savion Williams (Spirit of Faith/Undecided), FBU All Stars Yuka Onya (KLM/DeMatha) and Taheeb Sonekan (South Bowie/Undecided). He was in the secondary in an instant, and then when he put it into top speed it was over. Nobody in the league is going to catch this kid.   About 75 yards later, the Swarm had stunned the Heat and led 6 – 0.

Both team exchange jabs at each other throughout the first quarter with neither team being able to consistently move the ball on each other as the defenses stood tall. Two time GYFL All Star Christian Melgar (White Oak/McNamara) made his return from injury and this time came with a taped ankle. He looked fresh and really quick in his debut with a number of slick runs, but the Swarm could not maintain drives due to the stout Heat defense led by Big Matthew Hunt (Marlboro/St. Johns), Anthony Whigman (Leonardtown), and Andrew Rothstein (Westlake/Ryken).  

The Swarm defense was formidable early behind Malik Lewis (South Bowie/Undecided), Terrell Dance (Southern MD Eagles/O’Connell), Ferron Green, and Malcolm Murray. Ejaaz Mosely (South Bowie), and Sir Scott (PG Storm) held it down early from the secondary for the Swarm.

Finally, the offense of the Heat got it together on the legs of another kid that Grassroots was made for, Damien Jones (Pax River/Ryken). Jones and Green will be compared to each other a lot because they have a lot of similarities. They both run with reckless abandon. Jones may have a little more power. Green may have a little more speed. But, both should be high major D-1 prospects in a few years if they continue to put the work in.

Jones broke around the left end for the first score of the day for the Heat. It would not be the last. Before the half ended, Jones struck again around the right side. Lavar was under the tent watching closely as Jones dipped in the set up the safety. He got a great block by his WR Alec Martin (Peppermill/Undecided) and hit the sideline. Green gave chase to him, but Jones made sure that all who didn’t know how fast he was became fully aware. Green couldn’t catch him and he was gone from about 70 yards.   When we get stats and video we can give you the exact distance but suffice it to say it was a long way!

As the third quarter started, PG went to the air with QB Miles Temoney (PG Chargers/7th grader). He connected with Trevon Diggs (Montgomery Village/Undecided), who has been like superman the last few weeks catching everything thrown his way, but they could not sustain drives.   Next it was Perrin Turner (Westlake/North Point) getting loose up the middle from his RB position and he was gone up the middle for a long run, stunning the crowd and padding the lead for the Heat. The Heat Defense began to bottle up the Swarm and QB Aaron Parker (Westlake/Gwynn Park) went deep for 6 more. The Heat were pulling away.

The swarm continued to pour it on and the final score was 46 – 7. We will update this in more detail when we can review the film and get the stats. A turning point in the game came when the score was still close and Temoney caught Diggs on a post pattern. He put the ball right on him and Diggs uncharacteristically dropped the pass as DeMarco Blount (Westlake/LaPlata) was preparing to unload on him. He did lower the boom and the ball deflected in the air. It was picked off by Turner with a good return. That play by Blount changed the momentum of the game and the Heat never looked back.

Prime time player for the Heat was Perrin Turner. For the Swarm it was Malik Lewis.

Game #5: Howard County Stars 14, Baltimore Metro 6

{webplayer video=images/stories/videos/2012-wk6-game-5.f4v}

 

This game was awesome just as we predicted. This whole day was amazing. It was like a major prize fight card, with this game being the main event. The undercard was fantastic, but this bad boy was all that and a bag of chips.

We were on point about a part of our prediction. Baltimore did not come with their fully loaded deck. They came with more than enough to win the game and the coaches were not making any excuses about missing players. They had QB Kasim Hill (Eastern Christian Academy). They had Optimus Prime, AKA Steven Smothers (Pikesville) at WR. They had AZ Bratton Bey (Baltimore Stallions) and Malik Alston (Bluford West) in the backfield. They had the Law Firm of Johnson Lloyd (Woodlawn), and they had had Shemar Shanks (Hamilton/Gilman). With J’uan Campbell (Old Town) on board they had the majority of their heavy hitters.

Their core linemen were there in Myron Turner (CC Ravens), Jonathan Tynes (NW Bulldogs), and Murad Hussain (Pikesville)

They were missing Morgan Scroggins (East Side/Calvert Hall) who just received a scholarship offer from Youngstown State and the Hollis twins (Travon and Troy from Bluford East/Calvert Hall). Those players are difference makers and the Stallions are going to need them if they are going to make it into the playoffs and contend for the Championship.

On this day, it was still a slugfest of epic proportions. It was a ground and pound game for the mighty stars who featured their running backs on this day and they have a serious set. Abdul Adams (Laurel Hurricanes/Bishop O’Connell) was outstanding again on the ground rushing for 141 yards on only 9 carries. Adrian Platt (Elkridge/Undecided) delivered 147 yards on 15 carries and broke the game open with a 70 yard run right up the middle of the field in the 4th quarter. Platt has great speed, but looked like he might get caught from behind by Smothers at about the 10 yard line. He cut back to right to avoid the potential game saving tackle. Adams had been caught from behind earlier in the 2nd half by AZ Bey and Platt did not want that to happen.

Earlier in the game it was Baltimore that struck first blood. Behind the hard running of Malik Alston, the Stallions took an early lead at 6 – 0. Both teams kept attacking each other and moving the ball, but they were not able to score. The Stars did a good job putting pressure on Hill and containing Smothers. Smothers made a few catches but the Stars are great tacklers and did not give up much yardage after the catch.

On the Stars side, star player Eric Burrell was back on this day and had a great catch down the right sidelines to put the Stars in scoring position, but they didn’t cash in. In the 4th quarter, the Stars finally got on the board with a quarterback sneak by QB Armani Ceballos (Laurel Hurricanes). The Stars OL was lights on the day led by Sean McCutchen (Laurel Hurricanes), Joe Macklin (Silver Spring Saints/St. Johns), Marquise Chambers (High Road Academy), Michael Coolie (W. Laurel Stallions/Meade), Alex Leger (Laurel Wildcats), Craig Williams Jr. (Columbia Ravens/Bullis), and Nathaniel Randolph (Severn/Undecided).   Those guys paved the way for 358 rushing yards on the day.

The sad part of the game was when Sonny Csorba, the glue of the Stars went down with a foot injury. Csorba is just an outstanding football player and he will be a tremendous loss for the Stars on both sides of the ball. We understand that he will miss the rest of the season and our prayers are with him.

After the Stars went up 7 – 6, there defense tightened and knocked QB Kasim Hill out of the game late in the 4th quarter, which hurt their chances of a late game score for the win. They were pinning their hopes on defense late in the game when Platt broke up the middle for that long run to seal the deal. The Stallions backup QB Sam Friedman came in to relieve Hill, but that was going to be too much for the kid to handle. He threw a late game interception to Aaron Hansford (St. Johns) that sealed the game.

Burrell led the team in tackles on the day with 6, and Deandre House (Columbia Ravens/Hammond) had 2 interceptions on defense.
