  1. Are there kickoff classics in 7x7 or do they skip straight to the national showcases?
  2. Please make sure they know the high school rules for intentional grounding and pass interference.
  3. Wild finish. Stone Bridge missed an 18-yard field goal to win it at the end of regulation. Highland Springs got a field goal on their OT possession to take a 10-7 lead. Stone Bridge with 3rd down from the 1-yard line on their possession and they get called for a chop block, pushing them back fifteen yards Replay 3rd down from the 16, QB throws it into the end zone to a receiver who is not open but he outjumps Oklahoma commit DB and makes a great catch for the win. Stone Bridge sideline rushes into the end zone to celebrate, trampling the DB who is still on the ground and almost leading to a b
  4. Only one non-undefeated team in Saturday's finals and their loss came at the hands of another finalist. Class 6 (2:00) South County (9-0) at Oscar Smith (8-0): SoCo beat OS 14-13 in the 2019 final. OS looking to lose their fifth championship game in the last six years. Class 5 (2:00) Stone Bridge (8-0) vs. Highland Springs (8-0): Stone Bridge is 1-8 in state championship games. HS won four straight between 2015 and 2018 before falling short in 2019. HS is building a new school where their field used to be so this will be played at a nearby neutral site. Class 4 (3:00)
  5. New year, strange season, same faces. Class 1, 2, and 6 finals are rematches of 2019 finals, Class 5 final is rematch of 2015, 2016, and 2018 finals, Class 4 finalists have won five of the last six titles. Class 6 Oscar Smith 21 Massaponax 14: Scoreless second half South County 29 Madison 22: Madison rallied from down 21-9 to take a 22-21 lead, but SoCo scored the winning touchdown with about a minute left after a fourth-down pass interference call kept their drive alive. Class 5 Highland Springs 13 Maury 0: Maury limited to 134 yards of offense. Stone Bridge 46 William Flemi
  6. Haven't been following that closely this year, but should be some decent matchups this weekend. All the games in the larger classes start Saturday at 2:00 and should be on NFHS or YouTube, no guarantees on production values. Highland Springs-Maury is probably the premier matchup but the Class 6 games are good as well. Class 6 Massaponax (8-0) at Oscar Smith (7-0): Massaponax has been averaging 50 ppg with their triple option offense and won all games by at least 37 points, maybe they'll be the Fredericksburg-area team to finally get over the hump against Oscar Smith. South County (
  7. Not quite ready to fully move on to warm-weather beers.
  8. Looked this up--In 1984 (Owens' freshman year) Carlisle lost 81-63 to DeMatha in the final of the Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach. Carlisle's Jeff Lebo who played at UNC scored 41 points in that game, while Danny Ferry had 29 for DeMatha. Carlisle had beaten St. Anthony's in the semifinal. In 1986 Carlisle lost 48-46 to SJC in a tournament in Altoona; SJC beat Baltimore Dunbar with Sam Cassell for the championship. Doesn't look like they ever played in the DC area though. In Owens senior year Carlisle won the Raleigh Times Holiday Classic, which I think is the same tournament now known
  9. Every town in Virginia has at least one brewery now but I had never heard of Front Royal Brewing Co until I saw this for sale. Not many small breweries do an ESB so I gave it a shot and it's a very nice effort.
  10. Robert Parish was the man. I realize this is just for fun but it's generous of them to give Massachusetts two boarding school players from elsewhere (Steven Adams and Jarrett Jack) and a guy who left for boarding school in North Carolina after his sophomore year (Jimmy Walker). If they're going to do boarding school kids they easily could have assembled teams for New Hampshire and Maine.
  11. Haven't had one of these in YEARS. Nowadays we have chocolate chip cookie stouts, chocolate brownie stouts, quintuple chocolate stouts, but once upon a time this was the only "chocolate stout" in town. Much more of a dry stout compared to modern American chocolate stouts.
  12. That Thornton team had three future NFL players, with Antwaan Randle El and Napoleon Harris coming off the bench. Plus a future NBA lottery pick in Melvin Ely.
  13. Meanwhile in Northern Virginia they had a successful winter season and are several weeks into the rescheduled fall season. Really have no idea what they are thinking over in Maryland.
  14. I saw that O'Connell and some of the other lower division teams are playing a few games, are the big teams playing as well? https://www.insidenova.com/sports/oconnell-football-other-fall-teams-in-action/article_4e184a9e-7dc3-11eb-aeba-3fa1ae73b95f.html
  15. VA did basketball before football this year, but had to note that Centreville won the state championship in basketball, and the kid who scored 21 points in the championship game caught three touchdown passes in two football games the following week.
  16. Potentially decent VA game between Westfield and Lake Braddock on Youtube tonight (student announcers😞 Also Manchester against Monacan could be a good one:
  17. A bunch of VA games on NFHS and YouTube tonight...should be a lot tomorrow since some games were pushed back due to weather. No great matchups but opening night of HSFB in February is certainly a novelty.
  18. Lake Placid FL versus Lake Placid NY. Not sure if the NY school actually has a football team but I believe in miracles so I pick them to win 4-3.
