Unfortunately their guests, led by one of Virginia’s top 20 high school quarterbacks, was able to nip their hosts as the Chargers edged King George in a 13-12 hard-fought defensive battle.

The game was every bit as even as the score. King George more than took the measure of the arm of highly-rated Derrin Jackson, stuffing all but two of the Chancellor drives into the red zone with crisp smash-mouth takedowns.

Leading the way for the Foxes on both sides of the ball was De’shon Brown. The 5-10 junior was a dynamo in the defensive backfield and amassed more than 80 yards of offense as the main offensive weapon when staring as the King George running back.  
The defensive line and backers also shined brightly, anchored by stalwarts Blake Sparks, Josh Jenkins, Matt Myers, Shawn Hughes,
