Week In Review, 6th Edition

After one week off, the “Week In Review” is back. In this sixth edition, I’ll catch you up on how UVa’s class of 2014 recruits performed on the gridiron the past two weeks.

The Week In Review, 6th Edition

– 5-star safety Quin Blanding did the job on offense this past week, rushing for 110 yards and two touchdowns in Bayside’s (Virginia Beach, VA) 21-16 loss to Green Run. Bayside, which defeated Kellam by a score of 18-10 the previous week, is now 3-4 on the year.

– Defensive lineman Andrew Brown and the Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, VA) defense held Nansemond River to seven points in a 41-point win this past week. The Tigers improve to 6-0 on the season, 5-0 in Southeastern District play. The Tigers defense held Deep Creek to just six points the previous week in another big win.

The Pilot Online posted this touching story on Andrew Brown and his family this week. Virginia fans should definitely check it out.

– Clearwater Central Catholic (Clearwater, FL) had a bye this past week. The last game for LB/DE/TE Caanan Brown and company was a 35-14 win over St. Petersburg Catholic. Clearwater CC (5-1) returns to action this Friday against Calvary Christian.

– One week after seeing its unbeaten streak end at the hands of Lawrenceville School of New Jersey, Episcopal Academy (Newtown Square, PA) returned to its winning ways with a 34-25 win over Germantown Academy. Virginia-bound tight end Evan Butts came up big in the win, hauling in two touchdown receptions including one that went for 81 yards.

Dating back to the 2012 season, Episcopal Academy won 15 straight before falling to Lawrenceville School, 48-47. The team is 6-1 through seven games in 2013.

– Collins Hill handed Peachtree Ridge (Suwannee, GA) its first loss of the season on October 4, but running back Jordan Ellis and company rebounded with a 38-13 win over Mountain View this past week. Ellis rushed 23 times for 174 yards and four touchdowns in the win. In the 35-28 loss to Collins Hill, Ellis had 20 carries for 102 yards and two scores. He has surpassed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in the 2013 season.

Peachtree Ridge is now 6-1.

– Following a bye week, Upland (CA), which features UVa cornerback/wide receiver recruit Jeffery Farrar , lost to Glendora by a score of 24-21. The Scots are 3-3.

– Woodgrove (Purcellville, VA) is now 4-2 thanks to two straight dominating performances. This past week the Wolverines shutout Park View, 34-0, after blowing out Heritage the previous week. DE/OLB Jordan Jackson and the Woodgrove defense has been stellar in the four victories, recording three shutouts and surrendering only seven points in total in those contests.

– UVa-bound offensive lineman Steven Moss and his Chancellor (Fredericksburg, VA) teammates lost to Caroline, 26-20, this past week. The team was coming off its bye. The Chargers fall to 1-5 on the year.

  1. I am concerned about the possibility of loosing some good recruits to VT in the next 2 yrs. due to the plans for a VT vs UT game to be played in Sept. of 2016 at the world’s fastest 1/2 mi. race track in Bristol, Tn. This event will give both teams a chance to play in a game that will have the largest attendance in the history of ncaa football with 160K seats. I hope some of our 4 & 5 star recruits don’t opt to be involved in that game for history’s sake. Hotels in Bristol, Va. are already getting reservation requests to book all the rooms at Holiday Inn & Marriott for that wk. end.

    1. I just can’t really see it. The two schools contrasts are so vastly different in most every way imaginable…I just think if they end up at Tech it was just never in the cards for UVA anyway.
      Nor do I think these really talented young atheletes are shallow or fickle enough to let one game or even a season hopefully sway a decision to greatly influence the rest of their lives.
