Baltimore Lutheran graduate Jay Davis will compete for a starting cornerback spot at Brown this fall. Davis was a two-sport star at Lutheran, and also played for the 2011 lacrosse team that posted a 16-0 mark. The junior is the first player from the relatively young (2005) Lutheran football program to play at the Division I level.
Towson University (1-0) scored one of the biggest victories in program history when it defeated UConn (0-1), 33-18, on Thursday night. QB Peter Athens threw for 192 yards and a touchdown and Terrance West (Northwestern) ran for two touchdowns and 161 yards. The Tigers travel to Worcester, Mass to face the Holy Cross Crusaders (0-0) next week.
Morgan State (0-1) dropped its opening game to Army (1-0), 28-12, at West Point on Friday night. Junior Seth Higgins (Edgewood) shared time with Robert Council at quarterback and connected on 2-3 passing attempts. Cody Acker had ten tackles defensively for the Bears. Morgan State is on the road next week against Robert Morris (0-0).
At the varsity level, Bluford Drew Jemison dropped their football program this fall and promising prospect Brian Chase was able to successfully transfer to Virginia’s Episcopal High School. Episcopal opened their 2013 campaign on Friday night at DC’s Maret School.
