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 did this past week…
- Kyle Chung, OL/TE/DL, Ponte Vedra (FL)
Ponte Vedra cruised to a 42-3 win over Episcopal last week. The Sharks are now 5-1.
- Charles Clark Jr., DB/RB, King’s Fork (Suffolk, VA)
Clark and the Bulldogs defense stuffed Hickory in a 21-3 win. King’s Fork, which had lost two straight, improves to 5-2 on the year.
Clark also had seven carries for 37 yards in the win.
- Brandon Facyson (CB/WR), Northgate (Newnan, GA)
Creekside scored 13 unanswered points in the fourth to rally past Northgate, 20-16. This is the second straight week the Vikings (2-5) have not been able to hold a halftime lead.
- Holland Fisher (S/LB). Manchester (Midlothian, VA)
Manchester fell behind 21-0 and couldn’t complete the rally, ultimately losing to Cosby, 24-14. Fisher played sparingly in the loss but hopes to play a full game next week. He has been nursing a hip injury according to Lancers head coach Tom Hall, whose team is now 3-3.
- Kendall Fuller, CB/WR, Good Counsel (Olney, MD)
Fuller and the Good Counsel defense shutout McNamara, 22-0. The Falcons are 6-1 overall, 3-0 in the WCAC.
Hodges completed 14-0f-20 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns with one interception as Salem rolled over Landstown, 48-6. The 6’6″, 225-pound signal caller added 46 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Sun Devils (6-1).
- Cequan Jefferson, CB, Henrico (VA)
Henrico suffered its sixth loss in as many tries, this time falling to Hanover by a score of 66-37.
- Jameion Moss, LB, Northeastern (Elizabeth City, N.C.)
Another blowout win for Northeastern, which is 8-1 after last week’s 47-7 defeat of Currituck County.
Williams continues to flourish. Last week, in a 41-0 win over Warwick, the Crabbers junior tailback rushed 19 times for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Newsome was huge as well, accounting for 169 yards rushing and 70 yards passing and four total touchdowns (two rushing, two passing). Hampton is now 6-1.
- Parker Osterloh, OL, Warhill (Williamsburg, VA)
Osterloh and company snapped a 2-game losing skid with a 28-10 win over Grafton. Warhill is now 4-3.
- Carlis Parker, QB, Statesville (N.C.)
Parker completed 7-of-10 passes for 70 yards last week, helping Statesville capture a 37-27 win over Alexander Central. The Greyhounds are 8-1.
Parker, in only his second game back since missing several games due to a knee injury, is sharing time at quarterback with ECU-bound Tristan Mumford.
- Braxton Pfaff, OL, Liberty Christian Academy (Lynchburg, VA)

- David Prince, ATH, Patrick Henry (Roanoke, VA)
Patrick Henry was on the losing end of a 22-10 decision to Martinsburg (W.Va.). This is the second straight loss for the Patriots, who had five straight wins to start the year. Prince turned in a solid effort, completing 8-of-11 passes for 139 yards and one interception. He added 51 yards rushing on 17 carries.
- DJ Reid, ATH, Thomas Dale (Chester, VA)
The Knights (2-4) surrendered 14 unanswered points in a 21-14 loss to Dinwiddie. Reid had another productive game, rushing 20 times for 94 yards and one touchdown.
