Musical chairs on the county’s gridiron begins anew this holiday season

Montgomery County’s version of musical chairs has already begun on the gridiron.
Rockville graduate Jason Lomax has stepped down at Springbrook in order to accept the same position at his alma mater.
“It is with mixed emotions that I am stepping down as head varsity football coach at Springbrook to take the head coaching position at Rockville High School,” Lomax wrote in a letter addressed to the Springbrook Community. “This was a difficult decision that was made with my family in mind. The demands of coaching are very stressful and taxing on a family. This move allows me to spend more time with my family, coach at the school me and my wife graduated from, and coach in the community in which I live. This was a unique opportunity that my family could not pass up.”

BURTONSVILLE – The Sherwood varsity football team is undefeated through eight games after a 27-20 comeback win against host Paint Branch Friday night despite three touchdown passes from Panthers quarterback J.D. Guerrero.

The game marked the last home game of the season for Paint Branch (4-4).

“Somehow we found a way to make enough plays on defense and we got the ball in the end zone. To come back from behind and win was incredible,” said Sherwood head coach Chris Grier.

SILVER SPRING – Both Sherwood and Blair entered Friday night’s game at Blazer Stadium undefeated and wanting to move a step closer to a postseason berth.

However, behind the dynamic one-two punch of junior quarterback Michael Mbony and senior running back Travis Levy, the Warriors (7-0) remained unbeaten by virtue of a 43-26 road victory over Blair (6-1).

“I felt as a team, we did very well,” said Levy, a Boston College commit.

“We came out here, we executed and did what we needed to do. We knew it was going to be a dogfight but we kept fighting. Blair is a really good team. They come out physical. They play us hard each year. We just had to match their physicality and come out and execute.”

GERMANTOWN – For much of the night, one point separated Sherwood and Northwest.

But after a fumble recovery in the end zone and a 38-yard touchdown run by fullback Nicholas Comeau, Sherwood (5-0) pulled away from Northwest (3-2) to win 28-13 Friday night and spoil the Jaguars’ homecoming game.

“It was a great team win,” said Sherwood Head Coach Chris Grier.
