In a well-played game, the East’s superior skill position players overcame
a gritty West squad to win 28-20. The game matched two of the best offensive
coaches in the state in innovative Chris Beatty of Landstown for the East and
wide-open Rob Senseney of Gretna for the West. The multiple-formation offense of
the East rolled up 446 total yards in a balanced attack, while the run-and-shoot
offense of the West managed 290 yards, mostly through the air and on quarterback
scrambles. The execution of the game was surprisingly crisp considering the
sophistication of the offenses. Only one turnover occurred in the game on a nice
interception by the West’s Bryan Webb from Salem HS.

Led by the Virginia Tech trio of Greg Boone, Elan Lewis, and Victor “Macho”
Harris, the East squad raced out to a 21-0 lead in the first half and coasted to
a relatively easy win. Co-Offensive MVPs for the East, Greg Boone of Oscar Smith
HS and Kevin Cousins (Penn State) from Huguenot HS, connected for two touchdown
passes – the first on quick hitch pattern in which Cousins spun quickly away
from a defender and raced 15 yards into the end zone and the second on an
80-yard fly pattern that Cousins made a beautiful one-handed catch and shook off
the defender. East Defensive MVP, Macho Harris of Highland Springs HS, also
played extensively on offense and accounted for the third first-half touchdown,
catching a flare pass from Landstown QB Marcus Black and evading several West
defenders on a highlight-reel 27 yard run.

The West squad narrowed the score to 21-6 at the half on a 56-yard drive
culminated by a 2-yard pass from West co-Offensive MVP Brad Robbins (Western
Carolina) from Powell Valley HS to William Fleming HS wide receiver Mijuan
Curtis (North Carolina A&T). The extra point was blocked by DE Zach Sanchez
(Hampden-Sydney) of L.C. Bird HS. The East came right back on their first
possession of the second half driving 73 yards with the score coming on a
17-yard pass from Marcus Black of Landstown HS to A.C. Fitchett of Manassas Park

The West showed good spirit, rallying back on a 12-play 66-yard drive led by
co-Offensive MVP QB R.J. Archer (William & Mary) of Albemarle HS ending on a
2-yard plunge
