The Week In Review is a weekly recap of how UVA football’s 2017 and 2018 recruits performed on the gridiron the previous week. As has been the case throughout the season, Lindell Stone, Terrell Jana, and Lamont Atkins are among the top performers. Recent commitment Charles Snowden turned in a plus performance in a win as well.
Stone completed 26-of-41 passes for 454 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions as Woodberry Forest (4-1) rolled to a 35-16 win over Collegiate. Jana (no. 11 in the video below) caught two of Stone’s touchdown passes and finished with five receptions for 131 yards.
Kirven had one sack, giving him four for the season. Three of those sacks have come within the past two games.
– Lamont Atkins, Running Back, Lake Braddock (Burke, VA)
Atkins rushed 10 times for 78 yards and three touchdowns in Lake Braddock’s 42-7 win over TC Williams. The future Hoo, who will be on Grounds on an official visit this weekend, also had 10 tackles (3 solo, 1 tackle for loss), one pass deflection, and one fumble recovery in last week’s victory. The Bruins improved to 5-1.
– Charles Snowden, OLB/DE/WR, St. Albans (Washington, D.C.)
Snowden is being recruited by UVA as an outside linebacker/defensive end. He came through from the defensive end position in a 34-21 win over Paul VI last week, making a handful of quality plays and coming away with one sack. The 6’7″, 200-pound senior also showed well at wide receiver, hauling in four receptions for 101 yards and a 74-yard touchdown.
