Big Doings at QO; Gators Join the Fray

Quince Orchard football coach Dave Mencarini reports "we got fireworks at QO," and he's not exaggerating too much. (Though, as anyone who has been around knows, the only fireworks in Montgomery County are at Damascus, where some kids occasionally go in the woods to set off a small display at the end of the national anthem.)

Defensive back Travis Hawkins picked up his latest scholarship offer yesterday, when Florida Coach Urban Meyer told Hawkins the Gators have a spot for the player. Oklahoma and Michigan State offered last Friday. They join - by conference - Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina State, Syracuse, Cincinnati, Connecticut and Penn State. "I think that's right," Mencarini said. "USC just requested film and I'm supposed to hear back from Notre Dame in the next day or two."

Here are some Hawkins' highlights:

Also, All-Met lineman Terrence Stephens has offers from Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Stnaford, Nebraska, Illinois, Syracuse and Connecticut. Defensive end Jason Ankrah has Maryland, West Virginia, North Carolina State, Syracuse, Illinois and Nebraska. And Mencarini thinks that tight end Cody McGill soon could join the group with his first offers.

Among Quince Orchard's current seniors, running back Thomas Addison, a second-team All-Met, seems headed for Shepherd and it seems likely that All-Met lineman Zach Kerr - who signed with Maryland - will need a year of prep school to qualify academically. That probably will be at Fork Union after Maryland saw recruit Zach Brown change his mind and head to North Carolina while attending Hargrave Military Academy this past year.
