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. Here is how Tech’s class fared last week…
- Kyle Chung, OL/TE/DL, Ponte Vedra (FL)
Ponte Vedra eased to a 35-7 win over Nease. The Sharks have now won two straight after dropping their season opener.
- Charles Clark Jr., DB/RB, King’s Fork (Suffolk, VA)
King’s Fork improved to 4-0 with last week’s 39-7 win over Great Bridge. Clark rushed for one touchdown, and for the second consecutive week he returned an interception for a score. The Bulldogs have now doubled their win total from all of last year.
- Brandon Facyson (CB/WR), Northgate (Newnan, GA)
Facyson had five catches for 117 yards and a touchdown as Northgate downed Ola, 37-15. The Vikings, now 2-2, scored the game’s first 23 points and never looked back.
- Holland Fisher (S/LB). Manchester (Midlothian, VA)
Manchester surrendered 13 fourth quarter points to L.C. Bird, and that proved to be the difference in a 19-10 loss. The Lancers are now 2-2 in the 2012 season.
- Kendall Fuller, CB/WR, Good Counsel (Olney, MD)
Kendall Fuller’s 20-yard fumble return for a touchdown was one of four first quarter touchdowns for Good Counsel, which cruised to a 45-24 win over Gonzaga this past week. Fuller added three catches for 16 yards. The Falcons are 4-1.
Salem dominated Green Run, 37-0, and remains undefeated through four games. Hodges had an 11-yard touchdown pass in the win, which sets up a big-time match-up against Beach District rival Ocean Lakes. Both teams are undefeated entering this Friday’s contest.
- Cequan Jefferson, CB, Henrico (VA)
Henrico’s tough start to the 2012 season continued this past week, as the Warriors (0-3) dropped a 42-27 decision to J.R. Tucker. Jefferson had a 52-yard touchdown catch in a losing effort.
- Jameion Moss, LB, Northeastern (Elizabeth City, N.C.)
Northeastern is now 5-1 after a 47-7 win over First Flight. Moss and company are 2-0 in the Northeastern Coastal Conference.
Hampton’s 42-point effort concluded with Deon Newsome returning an onside kick 58 yards for a touchdown and a Marshawn Williams 2-point conversion. That was a fitting end to the Crabbers’ 42-20 win over Woodside, as the VT-bound prospects accounted for all of Hampton’s points. In addition to the kick-off return, Newsome had two touchdown passes and one touchdown run. Meanwhile, Williams turned in touchdown runs of 39 and 50 yards in the win. The standout running back finished with 192 yards rushing.
Hampton is now 3-1.
- Parker Osterloh, OL, Warhill (Williamsburg, VA)
Warhill is now 3-1 after defeating New Kent this past week.
- Carlis Parker, QB, Statesville (N.C.)
Parker remains on the sideline while recovering from a knee injury, but his team did well, shutting out North Iredell 42-0. Statesville is 5-1 on the year.
- Braxton Pfaff, OL, Liberty Christian Academy (Lynchburg, VA)
LCA is now 3-1 on the year after drubbing Prince Edward, 78-7. The Bulldogs led 42-0 after the first quarter.
- David Prince, ATH, Patrick Henry (Roanoke, VA)
Prince turned in his best individual performance of the 2012 season last Friday night. In a 55-6 win over Patriot, the Patrick Henry signal caller completed all six of his passes for 119 yards and rushed seven times for 70 yards and two scores. The Patriots are now 5-0.
- Anthony Shegog, S/ATH, North Stafford (Stafford, VA)
North Stafford soundly defeated Commonwealth District foe Riverbend, 48-13, to improve to 4-0 on the season. The Wolverines are also a perfect 3-0 in the Commonwealth District.
Shegog and the rest of the starters didn’t play much in the second half, but the Tech-bound safety did return a fumble 32 yards for a touchdown as North Stafford jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.
- Wyatt Teller, DL/OL, Liberty (Bealeton, VA)
Liberty got back in the win column with a 38-14 victory over Charlottesville last week. Teller was disruptive on defense, accounting for “several tackles for loss” according to the Charlottesville Daily Progress. He also got in on the action on offense, coming through with a rushing touchdown.
The Eagles had dropped two straight before this win. They are now 3-2 on the year.
VT’s Class of 2014
- Xavier Burke, DL/TE, Brunswick County (Lawrenceville, VA)
Hopewell bested Brunswick, 28-6. The Bulldogs have now lost three straight and are 1-3 on the year.
- Javon Harrison, ATH, Kathleen (Lakeland, FL)
Kathleen rallied from 20 points down to take a 21-20 lead over Winter Haven late in the third quarter. Winter Haven ultimately escaped with a 27-21 victory, dropping Kathleen to 2-2.
Harrison had an 86-yard touchdown reception in the loss.
- Vinny Mihota, DE/OL, Massaponax (Fredericksburg, VA)
Massaponax fell to 3-2 on the season after this past Friday’s 37-14 loss to Mountain View.
