Seen and Heard

This doesn't deal with recruiting, just wanted to share two things I'd never seen before last Friday's Friendly-Gwynn Park game.

While the NFL outlaws choreographed on-field dances by groups of players, there is no such rule for high schools. Before Friendly kicks off -- and since the Patriots average 40.5 points, second-best in the Washington area, this has been often -- the members of its coverage team dance a little jig together.

Later in the game, with Friendly pulling away and tempers heating up, the referee called together captains Joe Haden of Friendly and Courtney Prince of Gwynn Park to try to calm things down. After essentially telling both teams to cut out the cheap shots, the referee then headed to the Friendly sideline, where it seemed he would tell Coach George Earley what he told the players. Instead, the referee reached out to an assistant coach, handed him a cell phone and said, "Coach, I don't know whose it is. We found it on the field."

Anyone else think someone might have been planning to pull a Joe Horn and whip it out after a touchdown?
