King George Foxes foil Chargers, and regain swagger

The Foxes are back! After compiling 69 points and giving up 14 points over the course of two games, the Foxes (8-2) offense has shifted into swagger mode. Last Friday’s 27-0 shutout over Chancellor (1-9) is evidence of that. After a minor wake-up call from their 35-5 loss to the conference champion, Courtland, the Foxes varsity football team has become stronger on both sides of the ball. In short, they are in playoff mode!
Senior Jordi Estes savored his final regular season high school game with four interceptions, 94 rushing yards, and one touchdown.

Over the course of Estes’ football career, Foxes varsity football head coach Jeff Smith has watched Estes evolve into one of the area’s premier players. “Jordi is a machine,” Smith said upon reflection. “He is one of those special players that appears every five years. He’s our secret stud that can do anything, and play everywhere.”

After a scoreless first quarter, King George opened the second quarter with a 44-yard touchdown run from Jacolby White. Later, with 16 seconds remaining in the third quarter, the Foxes extended their lead to 14-0, with a White to Antwan Brown 24-yard touchdown reception.

Chancellor attempted to score from the Foxes red zone -  inside the 20-yard line - but Markiece Johnson foiled their hopes with an interception near the end zone. However, 13 plays, and 91 yards later, Estes scored from 10 yards out. After a missed extra point conversion, the Foxes led, 20-0.

With 13 seconds left in the game, the Foxes gave the Chargers a going away present, as Johnson rumbled down the field for a 59-yard touchdown.

The Foxes are scheduled to host Dominion High School (6-4), on Friday for the first round of the 4A North playoffs . Game time is 7 p.m.

While the impending loss of 22 seniors to graduation may have lulled the opposition into thinking that the 2014 season will thrust King George into a rebuilding process, they may want to pause and re-think that scenario.

The Foxes will inherit a junior varsity team that finished with a 9-2 record, and an offensive backfield including Will Clift and Jordan Aley.
