Trip to Frederick Was Worth It
So this past Friday night, I had an unusual assignment, covering the Christchurch School at St. John's (Md.). Christchurch isn't in our coverage area. And having now covered St. John's (Md.) twice, I believe that to be an all-time high among Post writers, one that surely never will be broken.
The draw to the game was Christchurch wide receiver Deion Walker, generally considered among the nation's top prospects at the position. I blogged about Walker last spring, after learning that Maryland's Ralph Friedgen and Greg Schiano of Rutgers had taken helicopter rides to the Christchurch campus in rural Virginia near the Chesapeake Bay. (For the record, Christchurch Coach Ed Homer said that Friedgen arrived in a regular chopper, while Schiano came to campus in something out of a military manual.)
I was a bit hesitant to head to Frederick on Friday because Walker had sprained his left big toe in the season opener and had not played since. There was no guarantee he would play against St. John's (Md.). On Thursday, Homer estimated the chances at "50-50." But I decided to make the trip and Walker was as good as advertised.
As for colleges, Walker has taken an official visit to Penn State and has official visits planned for Notre Dame, USC and Florida State.
