Friday Night Lights VI: October 9th VT Recruit Update

With storms still screwing up the schedule, some recruits played one game, some played two this week, and some played none.

A little swag can go a long way to leading to victory.

Here's a look back on Virginia Tech's recruits and their performances this week of Friday, September 9th. Due to the weather delays from Hurricane Joaquin and other storms, this one's going to be a PACKED update. Do note, I will be reporting on simple scores for IMG Academy in deference to Khalil Ladler's team, but since he currently has a torn ACL, there will be no film of him or breakdown.

So, soldiering on through the schedule, here's the results...

Jovonn Quillen (Hampton, VA. 185lbs, 6'-2", Athlete)

Sorry, no tape.

Hampton played two football games in a very short time span, but won both games- beating Bethel 20-3 and then beating Kecoughtan 39-19. Against Bethel had two touchdown runs to go with two fumbles, but rebounded with an amazing performance in the next game: Two touchdown passes, a touchdown run, a two point conversion, and a 58-yard INT for a TD.

Victor Greene (Spotsylvania, VA. 215lbs, 6'-0", Outside Linebacker)

Chancellor versus Courtland has been rescheduled to Monday due to local storms. Lightning strikes and wreaks havoc on the schedule again!

Reggie Floyd (Manassas, VA. 205lbs, 6'-0", Athlete)

Reggie Floyd's highlight videos on Hudl are now Private; I cannot provide them to you guys, unfortunately.

Floyd's Stonewall Jackson team lost to Osbourn, 33-28. That still leaves them completely defeated on the year at 0-7. Floyd wasn't the issue, though. On offense he racked up 21 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown, and three catches for 58 yards and a touchdown.

Eric Kumah (Woodbridge, VA. 205lbs, 6'-3", Wide Receiver)

(Vs. Riverbend)

Due to weather, Kumah and Forest Park played in two games this week.

In the first game against Riverbend, Kumah was the player that helped lead the team to victory, 28-27. Seven catches, 154 yards, a touchdown, and an interception to go along with a blocked extra point attempt gave Kumah player of the game honors.

In the second game, Forest Park lost their game against Colonial Forge, 45-22. Kumah recorded 5 receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown, and had a long punt return touchdown, but he did have a crucial muff on a punt that Colonial Forge recovered.

Kumah continues to be a playmaker, and I welcome the addition to the team next year.

Joshua Jackson (Saline, MI. 200lbs, 6'-2", Dual-threat Quarterback)

No video, sorry. The link does have YouTube video.

Saline got yet another win, dominating Monroe 28-0. They're 7-0 on the season and have won their conference, the SEC Red, running away. Jackson was 10-17 for 136 yards and 3 touchdowns in the victory.

Local Article

Divine Deablo (Winston-Salem, NC. 180lbs, 6'-3", Wide Receiver)

I can't find an article for details, nor is there tape for Deablo, but Mount Tabor is now 4-4 with a 55-21 victory over R.J. Reynolds.

Max Preps Score

Phillip Patterson (Virginia Beach, VA. 180lbs, 6'-2". Wide Receiver)

(Vs. Cox)

Bayside played two games this week, the first against Cox, then a game against First Colonial. Cox beat them 20-0, but they boxed the ears off of First Colonial, 34-6. I can't find individual statistics anywhere for either game, unfortunately. Bayside is now 5-1 on the season.

Samuel Denmark (Charleston, SC. 175lbs, 6'-0", Wide Receiver)

Hanahan vs. Orangeburg-Wilkinson was rescheduled to Monday.

Jimmie Taylor (Jacksonville, NC. 220lbs, 6'-3". Defensive End)

Southwest Onslow lost to East Duplin, 14-0. Not much more to show, yet again.

Local Article

Troy Pride, Jr. (Greer, SC. 165lbs, 6'-0", Cornerback)

Greer is still undefeated at 7-0. By the by, Troy Pride is now on the Shrine Bowl roster for South Carolina, a prestigious honor. He also contributed with a couple touchdowns in the 61-0 victory- by newspaper one by rushing, and by receiving on the highlight tape.

Local Article

Thomas Jarrett Hopple (Suffolk, VA. 270lbs., 6'-6", Offensive Line)

No tape, sorry.

Nansemond River lost a heartbreaker to Western Branch, 28-26 on a failed two-point conversion pass at the end of the game.

Emmanuel Belmar (Suwanee, GA. 220lbs, 6'-2", Outside Linebacker)

Collins Hill High turned Duluth inside out, earning their fourth straight win and a slot in their playoffs at 4-3, with the final score of 49-10. Belmar contributed a couple tackles for loss, including a sack that showed great penetration.

Tavante Beckett (Chesapeake, VA. 215lbs, 6'-0", Outside Linebacker)

No tape, sorry.

Unfortunately for Indian River, they lost to Oscar Smith late, 15-14. This had to mean a lot to Beckett, he was an Oscar Smith transfer. I don't have individual stats for you, either, unfortunately.

Patrick Kearns (Rome, GA. 270lbs, 6'-5.5", Offensive Line)

No tape, sorry.

Darlington is 7-0 after a 21-10 win over Dade County.

Clay Dean (Purcellville, VA. 255lbs, 6'-2", Defensive Tackle)

No tape, sorry.

Woodgrove continued to push in the faces of opposing teams, dominating Freedom High School 56-3, now giving them a record of 5-1.

Max Preps Score

Khalil Ladler (Bradenton, FL. 168lbs, 5'-10", Cornerback)

Ladler's IMG Academy beat Southern Lab, 42-0. They are undefeated on the year.

The Pumas beat Charles Flowers on Saturday Oct. 3rd, 42-0, including the TD on the reception by Wolfolk. Their game versus Duval was delayed to Monday for storms.

Tune in next week for more high school updates!
