Bullis logoPOTOMAC — In a very long affair, the Bullis Bulldogs did away with the Avalon Black Knights, pulling away in the second half to win the game 30-14.

The first quarter was sloppy for both teams, but Bullis was able to turn an Avalon mistake into points. On Avalon’s first play on their second drive of the game, quarterback Aaron Gibson, who was standing in his own end zone to take the snap after a great Bullis punt, dropped the snap, and Bullis’ Dalton Lewis fell on it in the end zone for a touchdown. Gibson would leave the game later with a shoulder injury, and would not return. The Black Knights weren’t able to get much going with Gibson in the game, but it didn’t get any better without him.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.VA. – Avalon graduate Michael Blackman-Gladney made his collegiate debut Saturday in Shepherd University’s annual spring football game at Ram Stadium.

Shepherd, a Division II powerhouse, has built a pipeline from Montgomery County to the small West Virginia school over the years.

Blackman-Gladney, a former Montgomery Village Sports Association youth league standout, redshirted last fall but is expected to make a contribution on the gridiron during the 2017 campaign.

“It’s definitely a blessing to be out there with the older guys,” said Blackman-Gladney, who is projected to be the team’s starting strong safety this year.
