Simple week this week. We've had no new decommitments, so we're just moving onward. No new gripes or anything, simple football results.
Below are the players still in season, thanks to playoff games. Players out of season include Jimmie Taylor, Divine Deablo, Reggie Floyd, Eric Kumah, Joshua Jackson, Samuel Denmark, Thomas Jarrett Hopple, Patrick Kearns, and Khalil Ladler.
Jovonn Quillen (Hampton, VA. 185lbs, 6'-2", Athlete)
Hampton has set up a huge matchup with Tavante Beckett's Indian River by beating Norview, 29-14. Quillen was mostly a runner on the night as per usual, running for 121 yards, along with a touchdown pass, a touchdown throw, and a run for a 2-point conversion. He was 4-13 with an interception on the night, but it's the win that matters.
Victor Greene (Spotsylvania, VA. 215lbs, 6'-0", Outside Linebacker)
Courtland put it on Eastern View. A 48-20 beat-‘em-up showed the strength of the Courtland Offense, as they ran roughshod over the Eastern View defense. Greene himself had 189 yards on 18 carries to go with two touchdowns. That's his third straight year with 1,000 yards. You can see how he got them in the highlight- by simply flattening tacklers and being stronger and bigger than most of the kids trying to take him down.
Tavante Beckett (Chesapeake, VA. 215lbs, 6'-0", Outside Linebacker)
Nothing current, sorry- reason given below. Overall video provided in second link.
As I said earlier, Indian River and Hampton will play each other next week, which means they won their game against a surprising Kecoughtan team that had beaten Salem the previous week. Unfortunately Tavante Beckett sat out, as he suffered a concussion in the game last week against Bethel. Hopefully he is well enough to play in the next game, as that matchup will be huge.
Clay Dean (Purcellville, VA. 255lbs, 6'-2", Defensive Tackle)
No current video, sorry.
More Woodgrove? Sure, why not. Woodgrove beat Sherando (Stephens City out in the northern part of the Valley), 35-21. Nothing on Dean's performance, unfortunately. I'm quietly concerned about that, to be honest. I don't like a player being an almost complete enigma. He's rated at 3 stars but there's very little publicly available on him.
Myles Wolfolk (Upper Marlboro, MD. 185lbs, 5'-11", Cornerback)

And @MW1__ ends it with a pick. Wise wins 33-14— Ahmed Ghafir (@AGhafir247) November 21, 2015

WOLF WITH THE PICK TO SEAL THE DEAL! pic.twitter.com/HkPNDxALVt— The Pumas Den (@PumasSportsLive) November 21, 2015
Wise takes the 4A South Region championship, which means that they're in the 4A Semifinal next Friday at home. The score? 33-14 Wise, beating Eleanor Roosevelt for the second time this year (the previous win had been a 41-6 steamrolling). Wolfolk caught a touchdown and sealed the game with an interception. Wolfolk is probably the biggest playmaking defender in this class, and it continues to confuse me as to why he's not getting more recruiting hype.
Emmanuel Belmar (Suwanee, GA. 220lbs, 6'-2", Outside Linebacker)
How about another Collins Hill upset? The Eagles are now 7-5 after beating Newton 31-24, and are now headed to Roswell, GA to face Roswell. Belmar recorded a few tackles in the game, along with a couple QB pressures. He's still primarily lining up at defensive end.
Tune in next week for more high school updates.
