“It was scary at first,” Davin said of getting his first start. “I had butterflies in my stomach at first. But then, you just take the first snap and you become really comfortable. Everything you practiced comes easily…Everything just started clicking, we started hitting passes, started hitting the holes, and everything just worked out.”

Early on in the game, Georgetown Prep leaned on the run, like they also do with star running back Jalen Hampton, but they did not hide their backup quarterback. Davin was given many chances to throw the ball, and it was on his arm that Georgetown Prep scored its first points.

Georgetown Prep dominates Riverdale Baptist football team, 34-14

  • Published in Sports

NORTH BETHESDA- The Georgetown Prep Little Hoyas showed no mercy against the Riverdale Baptist School Crusaders varsity football team in a 34-14 home opener victory  Friday, which highlighted the Little Hoyas’ 800th game.

It was never a question which team would win. The Little Hoyas scored first, forced vital turnovers and had a special teams squad that scored three touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Crusaders only managed two touchdowns. They struggled to get past turnover issues and they botched vital passes that could have turned the tide of the game.

The first touchdown came on a 99-yard rush to the end zone by Little Hoyas senior running back Drew Back in the first quarter.

Sophomore Little Hoyas running back Jalen Hampton followed suit with a 23-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter as well. The score was 13-0, in favor of the home team, going into the second quarter due to one successful extra-point kick and one botched kick.

The Crusaders started the second quarter with a rushing touchdown by junior running back Sadiq Salawu, but the Little Hoyas retaliated as their special teams blocked senior Crusaders kicker Zechariah McBride's punt near the end zone and senior wide receiver Beau Hanley recovered it for a touchdown.

The Little Hoyas special teams struck again and blocked another punt in the second quarter, but this time sophomore tight end Jack Plank recovered it and drove into the end zone.

No scoring happened in the third quarter, but both teams made up for it in the fourth, as junior wide receiver Finn Muldoon scored for the Little Hoyas and junior quarterback Justus McDougal scored for the Crusaders.

Reports claiming President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch founded a "Fascism Forever Club," at Georgetown Prep in Montgomery county is apparently in error.

“No such club ever existed on Georgetown Prep's campus,” Patrick Coyle, director of marketing and communications for Georgetown Prep said.

Though a picture of Gorsuch in the school’s yearbook with the claim of being the founder and the president of the club made its way around the Internet and on social media, several former students at Prep said it isn’t unusual for kids to put prank club affiliations in the school’s yearbook.

Private schools champion Ethan Krause, a senior at Georgetown Prep, signed to wrestle at Duke University, where he expects to redshirt during his initial season.

“I chose Duke for the environment that was created with the combination of great young men, top notch academics and a team focused on improvement every day,” said Krause, who finished seventh at 138 pounds in April’s National High School Coaches’ Association tournament at The Convention Center in Virginia Beach, Va.

“Last year was strong for me, academically, with a 28 ACT score and an 1860 on my SAT. I had a 3.48 GPA while taking some of the hardest classes offered at Prep. At Duke, I would like to major in economics with a concentration in finance. This is a field that has interested me with the job opportunities present in Maryland, where I plan on living post-graduation.”
