Star of the night

Anton McCallum

QB, Hayfield

The senior had 195 yards and five touchdowns on 14 carries and completed 4 of 11 passes for 69 yards in a 49-21 victory over visiting Stuart in an AAA National District game. McCallum scored on runs of 6, 30, 70, 35 and 2 yards as the Hawks improved to 6-2, 5-0.

Coach Hospitalized

Eric Knight, Crossland's football coach and athletic director, was hospitalized for more than three hours Friday after having an apparent seizure during a soccer game at the Temple Hills school.

Knight, 58, was taken to Southern Maryland Hospital at about 5:30 p.m., where he underwent tests before being released around 9 p.m., according to Ronnie Crump, a former assistant coach to Knight.

Crump, who spoke with Knight at the hospital, coached with Knight during Knight's 15-year tenure at Potomac (Md.), where Crump remains an assistant coach. Knight left Potomac after the 2007 season and has been at Crossland since the start of the 2008-09 school year.

Crossland (3-4) is scheduled to host Potomac (4-3) Saturday at 2.

"He was the same old Coach Knight. He was talking about coaching [Saturday]. As of right now, I think he's going to be there."

Place to be: Broad Run

Loudoun County at No. 3 Broad Run, today, 1:30: The biggest matchup on the Loudoun weekend slate, this one pits two of the top three teams in the AA Dulles against one another in a potential Region II semifinal (or final) preview. A year ago, Loudoun County emerged from the league cellar to reach the postseason with a win in its season finale. This year, the expectations are for a repeat trip and then some in Leesburg, and a win over the defending Division 4 state champions would put the cherry on top of Coach Todd Hill's three-year resurrection project.
