Maryland offers Stone Bridge DL Burns

In 2008, four members of the Stone Bridge football team accepted scholarship offers from Atlantic Coast Conference programs while two more earned preferred walk-on status. One year later, the pipeline from Ashburn to the ACC remains open.

Junior defensive lineman Rob Burns, a key starter for the Bulldogs' run to the 2009 Virginia AAA Division 5 final, now holds four scholarship offers from ACC programs. After picking up his first offer from Virginia in late December, Burns has added offers from Duke, Stanford, Wake Forest and Maryland in the last month.

The hulking 6-foot-7, 230-pound lineman wreaked havoc in the AAA Liberty District, earning first team all-district and second team All-Northern Region honors. In his junior season, Burns totaled 62 tackles from the defensive end position and led the Bulldogs with eight sacks.

Stone Bridge won its third consecutive AAA Northern Region Division 5 title and sixth in eight years in November and advanced to the state final before losing to defending state champion Phoebus, 15-10.
