Stone Bridge All-Met LB Kyle Gouveia Commits to JMU
Gouveia, generously listed as 6-foot, 200-pounds, was considered undersized by many recruiters despite being perhaps the most important player on the Bulldogs standout defense this season. Gouveia filled multiple roles as a linebacker and safety and spied Osbourn quarterback Dominique Terrell in the state semifinals, helping to limit the Virginia Tech-recruit's impact. Gouveia's play helped second-ranked Stone Bridge to a 14-1 record, with its only loss coming in the Virginia AAA Div. 5 state championship to Phoebus.
The Bulldogs allowed just 781 rushing yards and 1.8 yards per carry all season, and gave up just 114 total points in 15 games.
This season, Gouveia racked up a team-high 119 tackles, including a team-high 89 first-hits, as well as two sacks, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and five interceptions. He also had 14 carries for 229 yards and 36 receptions for 187 yards with 10 total touchdowns.
