LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va.- The Washington Redskins selected cornerback Adonis Alexander in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft, held earlier this afternoon, and waived punter Sam Irwin-Hill.

The Redskins used their sixth-round draft choice to pick the 6’3, 197-pound Alexander, making him the first player drafted in the supplemental draft since the organization selected Jeremy Jarmon out of the University of Kentucky in 2009.

Alexander appeared in 34 games in which he played at Virginia Tech. In three seasons, he collected 91 tackles (56 solo), 17 passes defensed, seven interceptions, a sack and a forced fumble.

In 2017, Alexander appeared in nine games in which he played registering 27 tackles (23 solo) a sack, a forced fumble and one interception. He recorded a season high nine tackles versus West Virginia.

Alexander was born on Nov. 7, 1996 and attended Independence High School in Charlotte, N.C.

BERRYVILLE, Va.- The Clarke County Eagles finished strong defeating the George Mason Mustangs 42-7 on Senior Night at Wilbur M. Feltner Stadium.

"I'm very proud of this team, and certainly proud of our seniors," Eagles coach Chris Parker said. "They've been a part of a lot of big wins, and I'm really happy for them and proud of this team to be 9-1 this season."

Clarke County (9-1, 3-1) completed their regular season a week ahead of most teams as they have their bye week this coming Friday, the last regular week of the VHSL season.

The Eagles currently sit at number one in the AA Region B power points just slightly ahead of the Central Falcons, the team that defeated the Eagles. The team will have to wait and see how other teams do this week but will surely finish first or second in the final rankings that are used for playoff seating. The Eagles will definitely host a first round playoff game at Wilbur M. Feltner Stadium in two weeks.

Sophomore quarterback Colby Childs passed for 3 touchdowns going a perfect 6 for 6 for 165 yards. Childs also put the Eagles on the board with a touchdown run in the first quarter.

Peyton Rutherford finished his amazing  first regular season with 106 yards rushing on 9 carries and scored 3 times. Once on the ground and two on the receiving end of Child's passes. His second touchdown was a spectacular catch as he reached over the Mason defender and plucked the ball while running backwards and then went on to break away and score.

"I really just tried to focus on the ball and catch it," Rutherford said. "I didn't really see the defender until I got there and caught it, and once I caught it I was like, I got to score."

George Mason (5-4, 0-3) was able to get a score late in the fourth quarter on a 3 yard touchdown run by West Hagler. The Eagles defense controlled the line and was able to contain the Mason passing game.

The Eagles were led by defensive lineman Bryan Wallace who led the team with 116 tackles, (47 solo) and 12 sacks. The senior commit to UNC Charlotte was rewarded for his great season with a chance to move to the running back position with his first career carry in the fourth quarter.

"It was my first career run and I can't even tell you what happened," Wallace jokingly said. "I was running and it felt like I was in a spaceship white stars flying by me. It was crazy."

Kyle Baylor continued his streak of big plays as he scored twice on a 58 yard touchdown reception and a 73 yard run. Both plays saw Baylor shirking several defenders as he changed direction multiple times.

Senior lineman Kyle Anderson was selected the Sixth Annual Malloy Ford Unsung Hero. The award is presented at the end of every last regular season home game and exemplifies the spirit of hard work, and accomplishment.

"It's pretty awesome, I worked hard during the offseason, I work hard in the games during the season," Anderson said. "It's also a team aspect at the same time. I couldn't be here without my boys, they couldn't be here without me. We are a team, we play together, and we win together."
