circle these dates

Football season is less than a week away! Two weeks, in college, but the high schoolers get an early start. And with practically the whole recruiting class coming from a 150-mile radius of Charlottesville, you might gather that some of our guys might be playing against each other during their senior years. You'd be right. Practically every weekend, in fact. Below are the dates on which you might want to pay a little extra attention to the high school scores and see how UVA's 2011 recruits fare against one another. Also included are a few prospects UVA is hot on the trail of, and VT's and Maryland's local recruits as well. (I don't care when VT's recruits play each other - it's when they play UVA's that I've listed.)

August 27
Virginia Beach - Green Run (DT David Dean) vs. Bayside (prospect CB Demetrious Nicholson)

September 3
DC - H.D. Woodson (TE Darius Redman) vs. Friendship Collegiate (Maryland OL Larry Maczyk) Virginia Beach - Cox (OL Ross Burbank) vs. Green Run (Dean)

September 4
Maryland - Good Counsel (DT Vincent Croce, prospect CB Blake Countess) vs. Gilman (prospect ATH Darius Jennings)

September 10
Maryland - DeMatha (CB Jordan Lomax, OL Kelby Johnson) vs. Friendship Collegiate (Maczyk)
Virginia Beach - Cox (Burbank) vs. Bayside (Nicholson)

September 11
NoVa - St. Stephen's/St. Agnes (LB Darius Lee) vs. St. Christopher's (DE Thompson Brown)

September 18
Maryland - DeMatha (Lomax, Johnson) vs. Gilman (Jennings)

October 8
Maryland - DeMatha (Lomax, Johnson) vs. Good Counsel (Croce, Countess)

October 15
Peninsula - Phoebus (LB Caleb Taylor) vs. Menchville (RB Clifton Richardson)
October 22
Richmond - Petersburg (ATH Kevin Green) vs. Dinwiddie (VT DE Corey Marshall, VT QB Chris Hall)
Hampton - Hampton (QB David Watford) vs. Phoebus (Taylor)

October 29
NoVa - T.C. Williams (prospect OL Jay Whitmire) vs. South County (VT DB Ronny Vandyke)

November 5
Richmond - L.C. Bird (ATH Anthony Harris) vs. Manchester (VT OL Jake Goins)
Peninsula - Hampton (Watford) vs. Menchville (Richardson)

And what would a post like this be without a recruiting board update? Pretty sweet, actually, but you still get the board. Nothing but subtractions this time, I'm afraid:

- Removed TE Ryan Malleck (to Maryland) from the blue section.
- Removed CB Kyshoen Jarrett (to Pitt) from yellow.
- Removed LB Travis Hughes from red. No commitment yet, but that one's gone from "so you're sayin' there's a chance!" to "no."
