Eagles remain undefeated as McDonald breaks school passing record

BERRYVILLE, Va- The Clarke County Eagles moved their unbeaten record to 8-0 with a 48-14 win over the Manassas Park Cougars at Wilbur M. Feltner Stadium on Senior night.

Senior QB Sean McDonald hooked up with his brother Brett on the first play from scrimmage to break the school passing yardage record and PA Announcer Tommy Cain made the announcement and the game was stopped briefly as former record holder Duane Clarke along with former Eagle Coach Don Specht congratulated McDonald as did his parents.

"It's hard to put it into words," Eagles Coach Chris Parker said. "Sean is one of the hardest working young man I have coached in 32 years. The fact that he completed the pass to his brother Brett makes it even more special. They will always have something to talk about."

The Eagles wasted no time putting this one away as they led 41-0 at the half with six different Eagles finding the end-zone and the Eagles defense yielded nothing in the first half and had several turnovers. Bryan Wallace was a virtual one man wrecking crew as seen in the Game of the Week.

Jordan Turner made his return to action and scored on a 5 yard run. Also scoring in the first half  wee Sean McDonald (1 yd run), Vince Zdouba 4 yd td from Sean  McDonald, Justin Dulaney 18 yd td from McDonald, Hunter Rogers (2 yd run), and Jaxon Ottobre (1 yd run), Levi Mayo was 5 of 5 on P.A.T. with one failed P.A.T. pass attempt by McDonald.

The Eagles scored one more time in the second half as Chris Keim went in from 1 yd out. Manassas Park got on the board with a James Duvall (1 yd run) and Jonathan Bunner (1 yd run). Jose Alfaro was 2 of 2 on P.A.T.

Vince Zdouba received the Malloy Ford Unsung Hero award and Chris Sefton was the Malloy Ford Halftime Field Goal Champion.

The Eagles finished their regular home season and will the end the season on the road with games at George Mason on Oct. 31, and William Monroe Nov. 7.

Clarke County Sports will follow the Eagles as long as they remain alive in the Playoffs. #CLARKESTRONG

Q's Huddle Buzz - Vol. 3 No. 8

WINCHESTER, Va. – Sophomore Qlyl Middelijn is in his first year as the blogger for the football team. This week, Q recaps a milestone victory for the program.
I have been a member of this program for two years now, just as long as Coach Yoder has been our head coach, and we finally won two consecutive games in a row with our win Saturday at Catholic and it feels great.  Earlier in the week, as we prepared to play Catholic, coach asked us if anyone on this team has won two games in a row and everyone remained silent.
#18 Qlyl Middelijn
That silence put the utmost certainty that we will we do anything we have to do to win and that was the exact result. We came out with a 24-14 victory.
Its Homecoming week and we play No. 24 Hampden-Sydney tomorrow at 1. Why wouldn't we schedule one of the best, if not the best team, in the conference to play on homecoming? To be the best, you have to beat the best.
Hampden-Sydney is one tough opponent. As soon as the Catholic game was over our attention was immediately on the Tigers. Homecoming week can definitely cause a lot of outside distractions and that is not something we want to focus on. Our focus is striving to be the best team in the ODAC and earning that NCAA playoff berth.
It starts with us, nobody else. If every player does his part, there is no way we can lose.
We are a very good team when every player is performing his job and executing to the best of their capabilities. Come out and support your Hornets to#18

Shenandoah outlasts Catholic by SU Athletic Department

WASHINGTON, D.C.- The Shenandoah University football team has started its first-ever winning streak of the Yoder era thanks to a 24-14 ODAC victory at Catholic University of America Saturday afternoon.
The win also matches the 2013 win total for Shenandoah (4-2, 2-1 ODAC).
The Hornets led 14-0 at the break and 21-0 late in the third quarter when Catholic (2-4, 0-3) took advantage of a Drew Ferguson fumble in the Cardinals end zone.
Ferguson, who appeared to be down and reaching for the goalline, coughed the ball up where CUA defensive back Richard Roach scooped it up and raced 100-yards for the hosts initial score of the contest.
Catholic then brought itself within seven points by taking just three plays and 33 seconds to drive for its second score.
Now in a dog fight, Shenandoah responded with a 12-play, 43-yard drive that ended with a 29-yard Jacob Newton field goal with 2:33 remaining to give the victors the 24-14 lead.
CUA was able to drive into SU territory on its ensuing drive, but turned the ball over on downs and the Hornets ran out the clock on their final possession of the contest.
#13 Cedrick Delaney
Sophomore Cedrick Delaney, who cracked the 100-yard barrier for the fifth straight game, led the Shenandoah offense with 23 carries for 113 yards and two touchdowns.
He had a 34-yard TD in the second quarter and a 19-yard run in the third.
Ferguson was 19 for 27 for 158 yards through the air to help the Hornets to 372 yards in total offense.
The SU defense held Catholic to 124 yards passing and picked off CUA quarterback TJ Tutone one time.
Linebackers Michael Messick and Micheal Wroble each had 11 stops for the Shenandoah defense.
Kye Hopkins had the remaining TD for the Hornets, blasting over from the 3 at the 6:42 mark of the first that gave SU the lead for good.
Shenandoah welcomes No. 25 Hampden-Sydney to Sprint Field at Shentel Stadium next Saturday for a 1:00 homecoming contest

Washington Redskins Quotes and Injury Report

October 17, 2014
Redskins Park

Head Coach Jay Gruden

On the injury report:
"Ryan Clark was limited today - he is questionable. Akeem Jordan and Tracy Porter
are both out... Trent [Williams] was full today... David Amerson was full today - he
is questionable. Limited was Robert Griffin - he is out. Limited was Perry Riley -
he is questionable. Full was [Brian] Orakpo, Trenton Robinson and Darrel Young - all
three of those are probable."

On what cornerback David Amerson has to do to be ready for Sunday:
"That's up to the trainers and the doctors with the concussion protocol. Obviously
we take the concussions very seriously. We want to see him run around out there,
make sure there are no repercussions whatsoever and make sure he gets fully cleared.
Everything is on a positive track for him to play but I just want to make sure he
has got everything right about him."

On if there is anything to update regarding quarterback Robert Griffin III's status:
"No, nothing really to update. He is just doing what he is doing. He took a few more
reps today in the team periods, handing off and things of that nature and just
slowly but surely getting back into the flow. His progress will be up to the
trainers and the doctors moving forward."

On what Griffin III did in team drills:
"He did a couple scout team plays, just handing off - getting out of there."

On if wide receiver Leonard Hankerson or defensive end Stephen Bowen will play on
"That is a good question. We are not sure yet... Obviously, both of them look pretty
good. I think Bowen is probably a little bit more ready if he were to go. Hankerson,
probably we just need to see him a little bit more and make sure - because this is
the first time he has practiced with me, with our new system. So we just want to
make sure he has everything down before he goes - probably another week or two,

On the progress of nose tackle Barry Cofield, Jr.:
 "He is making good progress. Everything I have heard from Larry [Hess] in the
training room is he is doing a good job and coming along at a good pace. We
anticipate when he is eligible to come off he will be ready to go."

On the Titans' defense:
"What stands out about their defense? Well, they've got good players obviously. They
have got a good scheme. I know Coach [Ray] Horton. I've gone against him when he was
at Cleveland last couple years obviously. They do a lot of good things defensively.
[Jurrell] Casey is a load up there in the middle. [Derrick] Morgan is a good pass
rusher. They've got a good pass rush. In the back end [Jason] McCourty is playing
very well. They just have got a good all-around team defense. They mix up their
coverages. They're not overly complicated, but they do a good job playing their
defense and playing very sound football. So, it'll be a good challenge as every week

On preparing for multiple quarterbacks:
"You'll have a little bit different game plan for each one. [Jake] Locker obviously
has more movement skills. He's a very good runner - very fast, very physical, not
afraid to lower his shoulder and run people over. You have to be a little bit more
aware of him in the running as far as scrambling. There might be some calls you
don't call against Locker that you would maybe, possibly call against [Charlie]
Whitehurst. So, we'll keep a close eye on it obviously. We won't know until an hour
before the game who's playing, but it will have some effect on the calls that the
defense makes - very minimal, but some."

On if linebacker Will Compton has practiced with the first-team defense this week:
"Yes. Perry [Riley] has been limited. Will's taken all the reps with the first team."

On the reason for practicing indoors:
"Yeah, the field doesn't hold water too well. Too wet."
