The “Week In Review” feature, a recap of how Virginia Tech’s recruits performed in the previous week, will be posted weekly throughout the 2012 regular season and through the playoffs. Kyle Chung (OL/TE), Brandon Facyson (CB/WR), Holland Fisher (S/LB), Cequan Jefferson (CB), Deon Newsome (ATH), Braxton Pfaff (OL) and Anthony Shegog (S) have yet to take the field in regular season action, but here is how the rest of VT’s 2013 class fared on the gridiron this past weekend…
- Charles Clark Jr., DB/RB, King’s Fork (Suffolk, VA)
Clark got the job done on both sides of the ball last week. The 5’11″, 195-pound senior rushed 23 times for 141 yards and three scores, and he added eight tackles and two pass break-ups as King’s Fork defeated Booker T. Washington 21-14 in its regular season opener.
- Kendall Fuller, CB/WR, Good Counsel (Olney, MD)
Good Counsel fell to Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas, NV), 27-22, in the ESPN High School Kickoff. Fuller is a 5-star cornerback but showed off his abilities on offense last week, hauling in seven receptions for 78 yards in a losing effort. The Falcons are 0-1 this season.
Hodges totaled 191 yards of offense (96 passing, 95 rushing) and five touchdowns (4 rushing, 1 passing) as the Sun Devils defeated Cox, 47-23. Salem is 1-0.
- Jameion Moss, LB, Northeastern (Elizabeth City, N.C.)
Northeastern lost to East Duplin, 30-20, to fall to 1-1 on the season.
- Parker Osterloh, OL, Warhill (Williamsburg, VA)
Warhill edged Park View by three points, 20-17, in its 2012 season opener.
- Carlis Parker, QB, Statesville (N.C.)
Statesville is now 2-0 after defeating South Iredell, 30-20. Parker completed 13 of 25 passes for 170 yards and one interception in the win. He also rushed 15 times for 95 yards and two touchdowns.
- David Prince, ATH, Patrick Henry (Roanoke, VA)
Prince had 15 carries for 88 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown run, as Patrick Henry downed Hidden Valley 24-21. Patrick Henry is 1-0 on the year.
- Wyatt Teller, DL/OL, Liberty (Bealeton, VA)
Liberty defeated Potomac Falls, 23-7, in its regular season opener. The Eagles were led on defense by Teller, who had at least one sack and one forced fumble. Following the game, Potomac Falls head coach said the following about the 6’5″, 272-pound Virginia Tech recruit to FauquierNow.com Sports Editor Mark Trible:
“We were doubling him and even tripling him if we had to,” Gims said.
“We know he’s one of their best. He’s a great player… tough, strong, and has a great motor.”
VT’s Class of 2014
Kathleen (Lakeland, FL) athlete Javon Harrison and Hampton (VA) running back Marshawn Williams did not play (at least in regular season action), but Tech’s other two class of 2014 commits were in action.
- Xavier Burke, DL/TE, Brunswick County (Lawrenceville, VA)
Brunswick defeated Nottoway in a close one, 20-19. The Bulldogs are 1-0 and will meet Lafayette this week.
- Vinny Mihota, DE/OL, Massaponax (Fredericksburg, VA)
It was a hard-fought contest, but Massaponax ultimately pulled away to defeat Courtland, 26-15. It was the season opener for both schools. Up next for the Panthers is a matchup with talented Chancellor, which features N.C. State-bound athlete Chris Holmes and top class of 2014 standout offensive lineman Steven Moss.
