Some Football Tidbits
Northwest quarterback Josh Volpe threw 33 touchdown passes and just one interception this season, but college recruiters continue to barely throw Volpe a look, Jaguars Coach Randy Trivers said recently.
VMI and several Division III schools have inquired about Volpe, whom Trivers believes can play at a high level.
"The things I like about a quarterback are poise, toughness and intelligence," Trivers said. "And he has those things. He doesn't panic. He makes good decisions. And he's tough."
One player who is not going unnoticed is DeMatha wide receiver Rodney McLeod. Classmate Kenny Tate already is getting plenty of scholarship offers and receives much of the attention, but McLeod also is on the recruiting radar. The 5-foot-11, 187-pound junior recently picked up a scholarship offer from Maryland, Stags Coach Bill McGregor said. McLeod had 13 catches for 339 yards and five touchdowns this season.
Other top juniors include linemen James Bennett of West Potomac and Tony Edwards of Damascus. Bennett will be one of the Washington area's biggest recruits next year, literally and figuratively. He's 6-9 and 280 pounds. Edwards, though not as tall, is being recruited by Maryland, where his father played during the team's successful run in the early 1980s.
