In Victory Christian Academy’s (Lakeland, FL) final two regular season games, senior quarterback Demeitre Brim has rushed for a total of 421 yards and totaled seven touchdowns. Brim is a big-time playmaker for the Storm offense, and he is hoping for a chance to be a playmaker in UVa’s offense as well.

Brim watched Reynolds and the rest of the Cavaliers football team in person against Miami. Virginia certainly came to play, defeating the Hurricanes 28-21.

“I was really shocked,” Brim said. “I didn’t know they would play like that. I went down with a couple of friends. They are Miami fans. We were in
