When we last checked in on Virginia football’s 2019 Class, wide receiver Dorien Goddard had just become Greeneville High School’s (TN) all-time leading receiver. The 6’3”, 220-pound senior is at it again, becoming the Greene Devils’ all-time leader in receiving yards with a 3-catch, 183-yard, 2-touchdown performance in a 62-7 win over Sullivan South last week.

Goddard, who now boasts 2,142 yards receiving in his high school career, has totaled 34 receptions for 735 yards and eight touchdowns through seven games this season. Greeneville, the reigning Class 4A state champion, has rolled to a 7-0 record.

Harvey Jr. Goes For Four Touchdowns In Latest Edgewater Win

Virginia quarterback commit Robert Harvey Jr. passed for 139 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 35 yards and another score as Edgewater (Orlando, FL) maintained its perfect 2018 season record with a 56-0 drubbing of Lake Howell last week (click here for the Orlando Sentinel game report).

Harvey, a 5’10”, 185-pound senior, has led his team to six straight wins in his final high school season. Check out highlights from the win over Lake Howell below, courtesy of Hudl.

Notables

– Going back a few weeks here, but it’s definitely worth mentioning. Northwestern (Rock Hill, S.C.) senior cornerback Fentrell Cypress returned an interception 99 yards for a touchdown in a September 21 contest versus Dutch Fork. The future Hoo earned The Herald 5A defensive player of the week honors for his performance, which also included six pass breakups and five tackles. Northwestern (1-5) lost to Dutch Fork, 66-28, but picked up its first win of the season last week against Clover.

– Sandalwood (Jacksonville, FL) athlete Antonio Clary had a 2-yard touchdown run in a 20-14 loss to Raines last week. Sandalwood has dropped two straight after winning its first four games of 2018. The previous week, Clary and company fell by 1-point in double overtime. The Virginia-bound senior scored a touchdown in that game as well.

In September, the Florida Times-Union polled local players on various issues including top offensive and defensive performers. Clary, who measures in at 6’2”, 190 pounds, was voted one of the top three defensive players in the area.

Florida Times-Union writer Clayton Freeman wrote the following about the Virginia recruit: “Clary has boosted a deep, ball-hawking Saints secondary that’s a threat to snatch every pass out of the air.”

Look for Clary to begin his Cavalier career in the defensive backfield, likely as a safety.

– Blacksburg (VA) senior Tiquest Terry suffered a left hand injury early in last week’s game versus Cave Spring. The 5’8”, 160-pound senior did not return, although head coach Eddie Sloss’ comments to the Roanoke Times suggest the injury may not be serious enough to sideline him the rest of the season.

“We just felt that not playing him for the rest of the game was our best option at this point,” Sloss also said of Terry. “I feel like he’ll be back at some point in time.”

Blacksburg overcame Terry’s injury to defeat Cave Spring and now sits at 7-0. Terry, who stars on offense, defense, and special teams for the Bruins, amassed 24 receptions for 495 yards and eight total touchdowns in the first six games.
