James Monroe JV rolls over King George Foxes

The defending Battlefield District junior varsity football champions James Monroe High School continued their district dominance last Wednesday with their 36-6 victory over King George. The Yellow Jacket victory eliminated the Foxes from post-season play, as they continued their undefeated 9-0-record. Currently, the only other undefeated team in the district is Courtland. The Foxes lost in the junior varsity championship to the Yellow Jackets last season.

In the first quarter, it took the Yellow Jackets less than 2 minutes to march 59 yards down the field, where Eric Nelson scored from 4 yards out to give them their first score.
Xavier James ended a potential Yellow Jacket scoring situation inside the Fox 30-yard line with an interception. James would later finish the game with two interceptions. With 3:16 left in the first quarter Darryl Dyson extended the Yellow Jacket lead to 14-0, with a 40-yard punt return touchdown.
The Foxes managed to counter the Yellow Jacket drive with a 64-yard scoring drive. James set up an Eian Chase 2-yard score with a 18-yard run down to the 2-yard line.
The Yellow Jackets scored on their second possession of the second quarter, when Raheem Perrin ran through the middle of the Fox defense for a 31-yard touchdown.
Leading 22-6, the Yellow Jackets closed the half out with 58-yard run down to the Foxes 2-yard line. Only a touchdown-saving tackle from James prevented the score. However, on the ensuing play, Sha’ Mar Ellis scored from 2 yards out to give the Yellow Jackets a commanding 30-6 lead.
The Yellow Jackets scored their final touchdown as Dyson returned his second punt of the game for a score, giving his team a 36-6 advantage. Dyson finished the game with 10 carries for 100 yards, including two punt returns for touchdown, totaling 90 yards.
The Foxes will travel to Caroline next week to conclude their season, while the Yellow Jackets battle Courtland for the regular season district title. Next week’s battle between Courtland and James Monroe will be a preview to the District Championship that will be played the following week.
The Foxes junior varsity is approaching two back-to-back winning seasons under the helm of second year coach Neil Lyburn.
“We had a good season, but illnesses and injuries hurt us in the last couple of weeks,” Lyburn said. “The players’ effort is still there, but sometimes it becomes a mental thing. When we have certain people out, our team is not at 100 percent, and they begin to second-guess the next man. If you’re out on the field I expect you to do what the man before you did—everyone who steps onto the field is capable of doing their job.”
The true measure for every football program is their feeder programs. In light of the Foxes’ accomplishments in the past two seasons, the varsity team should reap the benefits. Names such as Quesean Jett, Jonathan Brinson, Kenan Frye, Kendal Harvey, Xavier James, Antwan Brown and Jordi Estes will soon be household names in the district.
