A matchup of two schools with UVA-bound football recruits took place at Woodberry Forest (VA) last Friday.

Woodberry Forest, which features three Virginia commits, hosted Avalon (Gaithersburg, MD), which features the Cavaliers’ lone 2018 pledge in outside linebacker Noah Taylor, at Woodberry Forest. The home standing Tigers came out on top with a 40-14 win.

Future Cavalier quarterback Lindell Stone threw for 221 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for 25 yards and two scores. Virginia athlete commit Terrell Jana, one of Stone’s favorite targets, had six catches for 101 yards including a 26-yard touchdown reception.

Defensive end John Kirven, who has also committed to the Hoos, led a Woodberry Forest defensive effort that shutout Avalon for the first three quarters.

The aforementioned Taylor hauled in a 52-yard touchdown reception for Avalon’s second and final touchdown of the game.

Woodberry Forest has won two straight to move to 3-1, while the Black Knights fell to 0-6.
