Ocean Lakes Recruiting Notes

New head coach Chris Scott has guided Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) to two consecutive wins in its first two games of the 2008 season. The Dolphins have many talented players, but two in particular – senior Shamarko Thomas and junior Justin Hunter – have turned in standout performances so far.

A 5-10 1/2, 195-pound free safety and running back, Thomas has tallied two interceptions and 10 tackles in the two wins.

“He is doing a great job,” Scott said of Thomas. “He is off to a fast start. He has led our defense, which has produced nine turnovers and two touchdowns this season. Our defense is doing really well and our offense continues to improve. Shamarko is playing free safety, but we find every single way to get him in the box as much as possible.”
