Meggett Has Been Impressive Thus Far

Here's a profile of Maryland recruit Davin Meggett. I covered Surrattsville's 36-24 loss to Douglass last Friday in part to see Meggett, who certainly has burst onto the scene this year. He's more explosive and with quarterback Andre Johnson back in the lineup after missing last season because of a knee injury, Surrattsville's option offense has been successful.

Meggett is the Washington area's fifth-leading rusher, with 873 yards in six games. He's averaging 11.1 yards per carry. But the play that got my attention the most was an eight-yard gain in the fourth quarter. Running the option to the right, Meggett took a late, off-target pitch. He tipped the ball to himself while being tackled low, shook free of the defender and then bounced off a few more opponents.
