Forestville (4-0, 2-0 Prince George’s 3A/2A/1A) last allowed an opponent to score on Sept. 13, a touchdown in the waning seconds of a 48-6 win over Crossland (1-3, 1-2 PG 3A/2A/1A). Over the Knights’ last eight quarters, they’ve forced a fumble, blocked a punt, and intercepted two passes while recording 14 sacks and 15 tackles for loss.
For a team with a 26-man roster, the Knights defense is loaded with shutdown talent all over the field. Iowa-bound defensive back Marcel Joly plays behind a linebacking corps of senior Claude Clark and juniors Larry Powell and Marcel Toran — a trio that’s accounted for 54 solo tackles. All that in support of a defensive line stacked with seniors Robert McBride (7.5 sacks) and Karon Dunbar (6.5 sacks).
