Prince George’s County football: League breakdowns

August 29, 2012
Prince George’s 4A

Favorite: Suitland (10-2).

All-Met senior wideout Taivon Jacobs, who orally committed to Ohio State this summer, and senior running back Anthony Squire return to lead the Rams’ high-octane offense.

Best rivalry: Suitland offense vs. C.H. Flowers defense. Last season, only one team held Suitland’s offense — which averaged 32.7 points per game — to fewer than 20 points. Flowers did it twice, including when the Jaguars upset Suitland in the playoffs, 14-7.

Players to watch: WR Taivon Jacobs, Suitland (5-11, 175, Sr.); RB Chase Powell, Wise (5-7, 165, Sr.); WR Larry Smith, C.H. Flowers (6-1, 180, Sr.); RB Anthony Squire, Suitland (5-8, 195, Sr.); RB Darius Victor, Northwestern (5-8, 195, Sr.).

PRINCE GEORGE’S 3A/2A/1A

Favorite: Douglass (11-3)

The Eagles return plenty of firepower, led by Tennessee-bound wide receiver Paul Harris, after making their first state title game appearance in more than three decades.

Best rivalry: Douglass vs. Gwynn Park

The Eagles make the short drive down Crain Highway this year to meet the Yellow Jackets in a matchup of perennial league contenders.

Players to watch: QB Jay Adams, Gwynn Park (5-11, 175, Jr.); RB/DB Daniel Cary, Friendly (5-10, 185, Sr.); WR/DB Andre Dalton, Forestville (5-11, 170, Sr.); WR/DB Xavier Ducksworth, Gwynn Park (6-4, 210, Sr.); WR/DB Paul Harris, Douglass (6-5, 200, Sr.); LB/QB Matthew Paul, Douglass (5-9, 190, Sr.); RB/LB Marcus Pickens, Potomac (6-0, 220, Sr.); LB/OL Dajuan Randall, Surrattsville (5-10, 185, Sr.); WR/DB Malik Scott, Largo (6-1, 180, Sr.).

WCAC

Favorite: Good Counsel (12-0)

Three-time defending champion Falcons return 15 starters, including All-Mets Kendall Fuller and Dorian O’Daniel, and field eight seniors with BCS offers.

Best rivalry: Good Counsel vs. DeMatha

The teams have met in five of the past six WCAC finals and have combined to win 11 of the past 12 titles. Gonzaga (2002) is the only other team to win a WCAC championship since 2000.

Players to watch: DB Devin Butler, Gonzaga (6-1, 180, Sr.); DB Kendall Fuller, Good Counsel (6-0, 185, Sr.); LB Spencer Kleinrichert, DeMatha (6-3, 220, Jr.); RB Dorian O’Daniel, Good Counsel (6-2, 205, Sr.); Damian Prince, McNamara (6-7, 300, Jr.).
