He’s done a great job. Come a long way since his assistant days under Turner at Gonzaga. Will be interesting to see what happens with him in the future.

Transcript appears to show Shaun Powell Jr. should be eligible to play QB for Eastern HS
Shaun Powell Sr. said he got a job and apartment in D.C. and moved with his son from southern Virginia so Shaun Jr., a promising 11th-grade quarterback, could get more exposure to college recruiters.
But since they landed at Eastern High School, where Shaun Jr. was eligible for both spring and summer practice, it seems coaches from at least one other high school have been complaining to the D.C. Interscholastic Athletics Association (DCIAA) about the student’s eligibility to play.
Powell Sr. said the DCIAA has gone to his landlord, who told them ‘yes,’ the Powells have a lease. They’ve raised questions about recruitment, which he denied.

Five-star ATH Nyckoles Harbor and his family excited to get to Michigan this weekend
In football, the best ability is availability, making Nyckoles Harbor one of the hottest remaining five-star recruits in the class of 2023.
Harbor (6-foot-5, 225 pounds) plays EDGE plus a few other positions for Archbishop Carroll (Washington, D.C.). Last season he caught 16 passes and scored five touchdowns on offense. Meanwhile, on the other side of the ball, he totaled 17 sacks, 66 hurries and 31 tackles for a loss. For good measure, he blocked two punts and recovered two fumbles for touchdowns.
Needless to say, Harbor can help a lot of teams in a lot of different ways.
Next on the list for Harbor is a visit to Michigan, one of 46 schools that have made an offer. The Wolverines are getting a recruiting assist from Harbor’s sister Ziyah Holman, who’s a track and field star for the school.

Carroll relies on sturdy rushing attack to overpower H.D. Woodson
When Archbishop Carroll senior Jamal Mungo Jr. punctured H.D. Woodson’s defensive front for a four-yard touchdown, he completed an opening drive that consisted solely of running plays — and set the tone for his Lions.
In a sport that increasingly favors spread offenses over old-fashioned ground-and-pound attacks, Carroll was often a football relic Saturday in a bruising 34-0 victory in Northeast Washington. And on the rare occasions when the Lions did complete passes, the payoffs were huge.
“Everybody has their theory of why we keep running the ball while everyone around us is throwing it,” Carroll Coach Rob Harris said. “Most people think it’s because I’m a former running back myself, but to be honest with you, I just feel like it’s the easiest way to eliminate mistakes while also controlling the clock. Everybody knows that in high school ball, kids are going to make a bunch of mistakes, so why would I help them make more by calling riskier plays?”

Potomac School wins opening football game
The Potomac School Panthers won their first game of the season, 32-28, in a seesaw non-conference road high-school football contest Sept. 2 at Norfolk Academy.
Potomac School won by taking advantage of four Norfolk Academy fourth-quarter turnovers. The winning score came on a four-yard touchdown run by Nicholas Webster with 3:45 left in the game.
The Panthers then recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, then later Devin Dunn intercepted a pass to clinch the victory.
Panthers’ quarterback Camren Boykin threw scoring passes of 68 yards to Malik Shelton and 40 to Drew Turner, who also had a one-yard scoring run. Boykin also added a three-yard scoring run.

DeMatha reinforces status by easily fending off Rock Creek Christian
Moments after the public address announcer called DeMatha running back Tovani Mizell’s touchdown run late in Friday night’s game, the Stags’ fight song blared over the speakers at Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex in Landover.
DeMatha, long the premier program in Prince George’s County, was headed to another win — 26-0, over Rock Creek Christian Academy — and the familiar tune marked another celebration for the Hyattsville private school.
It was also a reminder of the strength of DeMatha’s tradition. No. 9 Rock Creek Christian Academy, an up-and-coming program from Upper Marlboro, entered the season with visions of shaking up the local hierarchy. But No. 3 DeMatha restored order.
“There’s a lot of history behind it,” said DeMatha defensive end Jason Moore, an Ohio State commit. “It’s a lot of responsibility to stand up to it. It’s definitely an honor to put [the jersey] on and represent DeMatha the best way I can.”
