Even though the high school football season has been over there is still plenty taking place. Players receiving offers from college programs, athletes being recognized for their play with postseason awards, among other news. Here is an update of some of the recent happenings on Anne Arundel County and WCAC high school football scenes.
The first bit of news this past week begins with South River Quarterback David Foust. As Foust was awarded the Rhodes Trophy for being Arundel County’s most valuable player of the year. This honor is well deserved for this young QB who put up 2,781 passing yards, 34 touchdowns, while throwing just 4 interceptions and completing 63% of his passes. His team also finished the season 10-1 meaning his individual success was key to his teams’ overall success. With several college offers including from University of Maryland Foust has a chance to build further on his football career.
On the recruiting front Arundel Wide Receiver Shaun-Trent Okoye has received his 5th college offer from Notre Dame College. So, congrats to the Sen the Showdown MVP for gaining continued interest from college programs.
The next bit of news comes out of the WCAC and deals with St. John’s Wide Receiver Rakim Jarrett. The 5-Star Wideout as of today has switched his commitment from LSU to University of Maryland. This is a huge development broken first by Adam Friedman of Rivals Camp Series. This is huge for a Maryland program that will be happy to gain his services. So, a pretty huge shift for Jarrett but one the Maryland Terrapins program and fans are ecstatic about.
Broadneck Receiver Andre Woods Jr. has received a college offer recently from Glenville State College. Congrats to Woods Jr.
Also, Arundel MLB Ashalli Cannon received his first offer from McPherson College. So, Congratulations to him as well.
Then the BTC All-Star Game took place a couple days ago with many notable names taking part. Players like David Foust, Sean Leonard, Nasir Franklin-Branch, and Shaun Hemphill from South River. Shaun-Trent Okoye of Arundel, Keyon Garrus of Dundalk, and Andre Woods Jr. of Broadneck. Plenty of talent on the filed showing out and surely a lot of fun had as well.
Then finally to highlight a talented player to end this off let us look at South River Wide Receiver/Safety Shaun Hemphill. Hemphill at receiver had 44 receptions, 421 yards, and 4 touchdowns. At safety he accumulated 41 tackles, 3 interceptions, 1 returned for a touchdown, along with 18 pass break-ups. He made first team all-county at safety and has much to offer due to his size and range in space on either side of the ball. Whatever position he chooses to play at the next level he can make an impact.
