senior seasons

It's time for the return of Senior Seasons, and this'll be a lot more interesting than last year because last year we were only tracking 9 players.  This year we have more than twice that many.  Normally this is a Monday feature along with the weekend review but I was at the Lions game so there.  Today it'll just be a stand-alone thing.  It's not the work of 15 minutes, unfortunately, to find all the local papers, deal with stupid paywalls, and dig up the scores, especially when you've procrastinated and the games were five days ago.

Buford 27, McEachern 20 - David Curry returned a punt to the 11-yard line to set up the winning score, and then preserved the victory by batting down a fourth-down pass.  Buford is 3-0.

Greater Johnstown 24, Bishop Carroll 7 - Kareem Gibson caught what stood up as the game-winning TD for Johnstown.  Johnstown is 2-0.

Gonzaga 31, Centreville 14 - Nick Johns threw for 99 yards and ran for 51 plus a pair of touchdowns.  Gonzaga is 2-0.

Altavista 62, Randolph-Henry 0 - Juan Thornhill ran 65 yards for a touchdown on his team's first offensive snap of the game, and went 55 yards for another one on the next snap.  He also threw for a first-quarter touchdown, and Altavista had a 34-0 lead after one quarter.  Altavista is 2-0.

Charlotte 28, Barron Collier 14 (Grant Polk) - Charlotte is 2-0.
Elder 51, Lakota West 21 (C.J. Stalker) - Lakota West is 1-1.
Father Judge 38, Phila. Northeast 18 (Gladimir Paul) - Northeast is 0-2.
Abington 23, Plymouth-Whitemarsh 8 (Ryan Bischoff) - P-W is 0-2.
Don Bosco 35, St. Joseph's Prep 7 (Olamide Zacchaeus) - St. Joseph's is 1-1.
Cathedral Prep 42, Strong Vincent 6 (James Trucilla) - Cathedral Prep is 2-0.
Midland Valley 28, South Aiken 14 (Rasool Clemons) - South Aiken is 0-2.
Woodrow Wilson 28, Duval 16 (Kareem McDonald) - Wilson is 1-1.
Good Counsel 9, St. Frances 6 (Myles Robinson) - OLGC is 2-0.
Hanover 16, Patrick Henry 0 (Eli Hanback) - Patrick Henry is 0-1.
Liberty 65, Orange 0 (R.J. Proctor) - Liberty is 2-0.

Our players are pretty spread out this year - only a couple 757ites who don't play each other because one's in VB and one's in Chesapeake - so there are minimal UVA vs. UVA matchups this year.  One happened last week, as Good Counsel and Woodrow Wilson opened their seasons against each other, with a dominant GC victory at 49-13.  Gonzaga will play Good Counsel, of course - that's later this month - and Halloween weekend will see Liberty take on Kettle Run.  (You don't see the latter above because they had a bye this week.)  There are a couple instances of common opponents, but otherwise that's it for actual matchups.
