Eagles exact revenge with shut out to open season

Peyton Rutherford scores the Eagles first TD of 2019   Doug Aylestock/CCS
BERRYVILLE, Va.- All summer long the Clarke County Eagles prepared for their opening game just like they always do, except this time something unique was about to happen.

The Eagles opened their 2019 season against the same out of district opponent they played nine months earlier, the Buffalo Gap Bison. A game they lost 32-21and ended their 2018 season.

The outcome was much different this time as the Eagles avenged last years playoff loss with a 42-0 rout over the Bison.

"I'm very happy and very proud of our guys," Eagles Coach Chris Parker said. "We did in all facets of the game tonight some very good things."

The Eagles scored on all of their drives and held the Bison to 156 yards rushing on the night. The Eagles racked up 300 yards on the ground and another 100 in the air. Peyton Rutherford scored the Eagles first touchdown of 2019 on a 28 yard run. Rutherford ended up with 159 yards on 17 carries and two touchdowns.

Quarterback Colby Childs had a solid night going a perfect 4 for 4 passing for 100 yards including a 46 yard touchdown pass to Danny Lyman. Childs also rushed for 41 yards on six carries and scored twice on runs of 3 and 6 yards.Lyman had a solid night playing offense, defense and special teams. Lyman had 38 yards on three carries, 2 receptions for 82 yards, 19 yards on a kick off return, 4 tackles and a pass defended.

 "It was just a team win and I couldn't be more proud of our team." Childs said.

The Eagles defense was just as impressive with Cody Sowers leading the way with 11 tackles.
 Sam Brumback added 10 tackles and Neal Mitchell posted 8 to lead the Eagles defense.

After leading 28-0 at the half the Eagles played most of the second half with a running clock. (VHSL runs the clock if a team is up by 35 points in the second half). Luke Leso went in from 6 yards out in the fourth quarter to round out the Eagles scoring.

The team has it's bye next week and will travel to Standardsville to face the Green Dragons of William Monroe. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 PM

Redskins drop home preseason opener to the Bengals 23-13

Dwayne Haskins celebrates  with Robert Davis        Doug Aylestock / CCS
LANDOVER, Md.- The Washington Redskins returned to FedEx Field to start their 2019 campaign dropping a 23-13.

Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins split most of the time with Jalen McClendon finishing up the game.

"I thought we did some good things, Keenum said. "Again, I think there were some negative plays that kind of stopped our drives. There are always going to be some plays I want back and there's a few plays that I definitely want back, but I thought we did well"

Keenum started and ran the first several drives going 3 of 7 for 52 yards. A couple drives showed promise but were stalled by the Bengal defense.

Haskins came in and had the most playing time, splitting time between the first and second half. Haskins was 7 of 14 with a 55 yard touchdown pass to Robert Davis. The touchdown was the first of Haskin's NFL Career.

"It was exhilarating. I enjoyed it. It was fun. I will never forget it. It was exciting for me." Haskins said. "I was more proud of what happened pre-snap than anything. I did a hard count, had rotation late and flipped the protection. I still got hit but Rob [Davis] did a great job of getting open. The corner and cover safety was low. I saw him back pedaling pretty slow and told him that I was throwing deep. He caught it and scored a touchdown. I wasn’t worried about getting hit. After he scored, I was excited."

Running Back Shaun Wilson breaks a tackle on a punt return                    Doug Aylestock / CCS

Redskins defensive back Montae Nicholson got the Redskins on the board first with an electrifying 96 yard interception off Andy Dalton, Nicholson raced up the Redskin sidelines with blazing speed.

The score was  tied 13-13 late in the game when the Bengals broke it open with a punt return for a touchdown. The second week in a row the Redskins special teams have yielded a score.

"We have to look at the punt number one. How was it? Was there any hang time? Was it just a line drive to [Alex] Erickson, who is a heck of a punt returner," Gruden said. "The coaches do a great job out there. [Special Teams Coordinator] Nate [Kaczor] will do a good job of checking it out and getting them better."

Adrian Peterson led the Redskins rushing with 31 yardsThe coaches do a great job out there. [Special Teams Coordinator] Nate [Kaczor] will do a good job of checking it out and getting them better." on 4 carries including a 26 yard rumble to start the game.

Colt McCoy did not play but is still in the quarterback picture. When asked about the quarterback situation Gruden replied, "I’m good right now. I think we have a lot of time still to get these guys back and recover. We'll come back Sunday ready to roll – Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday. And then we still have another few days before our last preseason game. I like where we’re at and where we’re headed. "

Another Season, Another Training Camp

Jordan Reed looks sharp in one on one     Photo by Doug Aylestock / CCS
Richmond, Va.- Several questions loom for the team as they enter another season.
The biggest concern is the absence of All World tackle Trent Williams.

The Redskins put Williams on the Reserve/Did Not Report list.

"No, I haven't no", was head coach Jay Gruden's answer when asked if he had talked to Trent.

Saturday was Military Appreciation Day sponsered by Geico. 

The players and coaches all feel honored to be able to give back to our armed forces.

"Yeah, it’s a great day, man," Gruden said. "It’s great to have these guys out here. You know, anytime we can support our troops, have them come out here and get a chance to meet them and shake their hand, it’s great for us. Hopefully they get excited to meet us, but we’re definitely excited to meet them. It’s a privilege."

Running back Derrius Guice, who missed all of last season is expected to show his talent as a battle for the running back position emerges between Adrian Peterson, Samjae Perine, Chris Thompson, Byron Marshall, and Craig Reynolds.

We’re going to continue to build on Derrius’ reps, for sure," Gruden said. "We just don’t want to give him 50 reps on the second day back from his injury, so we’re going to continue to build up his rep count and while he’s doing that, we get Samaje more looks, Craig Reynolds some more looks, you know, Byron Marshall some more looks and it’s a benefit for everybody."

The team will continue training camp through August 11 with several special days left, including Fan Appreciation Day on Saturday, August 3, Sunday, August 4 is Social Media Day, and Youth football day & Gatorade Junior Training camp.

Jimmy Moreland excited to be a Redskin

ASHBURN, Va.- Jimmy Moreland, the consensus 1st team All American cornerback out of James Madison University admits he was worried when it got into the seventh round of the NFL Draft and his name hadn't been called.

"It felt like a weight lifted off my shoulders." Moreland said, "I didn't think I was gonna get a call that late, after the Redskins called it just felt like an accomplishment lifted up, I've been through a lot, I'm just glad I'm here now."

Moreland, from Royal Palm Beach, Florida has gotten used to this area, after starting four seasons for the Dukes. Last year as a Red Shirt senior Moreland

"You know [I went to school] two hours from here. When I got here, most people already knew who I was. A couple of people knew where I was from – Belle Glade, Florida." Moreland said.

Jimmy Moreland breaks up a pass in one on one drills                                             Photo by Doug Aylestock  /  CCS

Moreland is JMU's first NFL Draft selection since 2013 when former offensive lineman Earl Watford was taken in the fourth round by the Arizona Cardinals. He's also the second JMU cornerback to ever be taken in the Draft, joining 2010 sixth-round selection Scotty McGee.

To date, 10 former JMU stars are currently on active NFL rosters, including six from the 2016 national-championship team.

One of those 10 is team mate Andrew Ankrah, a linebacker listed on the roster as a first year veteran, who recently signed a 3 year deal with the team has been helping his fellow team mate out.

"After I got up here, Andrew called me immediately. Asked me if I need anything, and he helps me learn the ropes on and off the field." Moreland said.

Foster reportedly tears ACL in first day of OTA's

ASHBURN, Va.- The Washington Redskins defense took a big hit when 1st year Redskin Reuben Foster went down mid way through yesterday's non contact practice at the Inova Sports Performance Center at Redskins Park.

Reuben Foster & Montez Sweat speak with Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky  Photo by Doug Aylestock / CCS

"Yeah, he’s going to get his MRI, and CT stuff and all the other tests he has to do. We don’t have any information right now," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said after practice. "Just ran through a gap and stepped on [Tyler] Catalina’s foot and landed funny on his left leg so we’re going to get that checked out. We’ll hope for the best right now until we get the results. But, very concerning for sure. I’ll just have to wait and see before I get too emotional about it." 

Several media sources are reporting Foster has torn his ACL and may also have additional artery damage near his left knee including the NFL's Networks Ian Rapoport tweeted on Monday.
Foster, a third year NFL veteran was signed by the Redskins after the San Francisco 49'ers released the Alabama linebacker amid possible domestic violence charges that have since been dropped.

Several former Tide team mates were looking forward to Foster joining the Burgundy and Gold and were hoping to put all the negativity behind them.

"I didn’t [see his injury]. It is disappointing, but we cannot really say anything until his MRI, just waiting on that right now," Jon Allen said. "Personally, I think everything happens for a reason. God has his plan, you do not always know what he is going to do, but you got to have faith and like I said, we do not even know what happened yet, so we will have to wait for the MRI. He is definitely in my prayers and trust me, I know Rueben, he’ll be fine."

Clarke County Sports will post any official updates from the team on the status of Reuben Foster's injury and projected recovery.

Another season begins

ASHBURN, Va.- The Washington Redskins held their annual Rookie / Free Agent camp this past weekend at the Inova Sports Performance Center at Redskins Park.

All of the 2019 draft selections along with several college free agents and invited 1st year veterans were present.

First round selections Dwayne Haskins and Montez Sweat garnered much of the attention, both standing out in their performances.

When asked about Haskins running the offense, Redskins coach Jay Gruden replied, "It’s been positive. It's been a good experience so far to get to know him, get some plays and watch him learn and then watch him take it to the field. Yesterday, he had a great day. Today the defense played a little better, but it’s just a matter of progression right now and installation. We’re at the very bare minimum right now, but I’m very impressed with his skillset for sure. He can really spin it."

Sweat was equally impressive to the coaching staff.  "I have no doubt that he’s going to play a lot," Gruden said. "The skillset that he has is quite evident. You see his length and then you watch him run after practice and he’s faster than anybody we have probably right now.

Redskins select Haskins and Sweat in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft

ASHBURN, Va.-  The Washington Redskins utilized two first round picks to grab a highly sought after quarterback and a pass rushing specialist in this years 2019 NFL Draft held last Thursday through Saturday in Nashville.

Ohio State Quarterback Dwayne Haskins was the Redskins 1st pick and the 15th overall pick in the first round.

The selection of Haskins marks the third time in the last five years that the Redskins have selected an offensive player in the first round, joining the selections of G Brandon Scherff (2015) and WR Josh Doctson (2016). It marks the team’s first time making three offensive first-round selection in that length of time since the 2000-02 drafts, when the team selected T Chris Samuels (2000), WR Rod Gardner (2001) and QB Patrick Ramsey (2002).

“We’re excited to have him,” head coach Jay Gruden said following the first night of the draft. “Great kid, great player and very smart. I had a chance to talk to him at the Combine. We flew him in here, had a long talk with him, went to dinner with him and spent a lot of time with him. We feel really good about where he is as a player and where he’s going.”

Haskins, who had a record-setting season for the Buckeyes in 2018 with 50 touchdown passes and 4,831 yards passing.  A Heisman Trophy finalist, Haskins is the fourth Ohio State quarterback drafted since 2000, and the first since Cardale

Jones was chosen in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by Buffalo. Recent Ohio State quarterbacks drafted also include Troy Smith (5th round by Baltimore in 2007) and Craig Krenzel (5th by Chicago in 2004).

"Expectations are to work as hard as I can, do all I can and be a part of this position [group] and this franchise,” Haskins said. “I'm looking forward to contributing in any way possible and just get down and work. I'm just excited to be a part of something special and be a part of a team again. I am looking forward to calling the Redskins my home. Things will come and I'm just going to do everything I can to be ready."

The Redskins had the luxury of two first round draft picks and used their second pick to draft Linebacker Montez Sweat from Mississippi State with the 26th overall pick.

Sweat is the 11th defensive player selected by the Redskins in the first round since 1999, joining CB Champ Bailey (1999), LB LaVar Arrington (2000), S Sean Taylor (2004), CB Carlos Rogers (2005), S LaRon Landry (2007), DE/LB Brian Orakpo (2009), LB Ryan Kerrigan (2011), DL Jonathan Allen (2017), and DT Daron Payne (2018). Nine of the 10 defensive players selected by the Redskins in the first round in that time frame have earned at least one Pro Bowl selection during their career.

Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden was pleased with the pick.  "I think when you watched him as a player throughout his college career and then you watched him at the Senior Bowl and Combine. The measurables are second to none as far as an edge rusher, outside linebacker-type player. If you’re 6-foot-6, run a 4.41 forty and you have the production he had at Mississippi State and you performed like he did at the Senior Bowl, it just is a perfect fit for us. Losing Preston like I said and to go alongside with Ryan Anderson, Ryan Kerrigan, obviously Cassanova McKinzy. I think it’s a perfect fit for us.”

For his career, Sweat recorded 101 tackles (29.5 for loss) and 22 sacks over 26 games.

"My emotions were going everywhere, Sweat said. " It was low-key a series of some doubts like, 'Why am I dropping so far? 'What's going on?' I was just wondering what's going on and then the Redskins called me and they changed my whole persona, everything, the way I was feeling. Now they definitely have a winner in me."
