All-Met Watch | Football

Previous: Preseason | Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4

There are five changes to the team this week. Westlake defensive lineman Josh Alexander isn’t a newcomer. He was on the first team earlier this season and has been in consideration every week. The same holds true for Dunbar linebacker Javarie Johnson. Forestville senior Antonio Belt is one of the area’s most dynamic players, moving between wide receiver and quarterback on offense and cornerback and safety on defense while also returning punts and kicks. Offensive lineman Max Coale is the third River Hill player to crack the first team. And DeMatha kicker Michael Branthover is regarded as one of the Stags’ biggest impact players, often forcing opponents to start on their 20-yard line after a Stags score.

Latest On The Varsity Debate

This week on our high school football forum: "High school football players can compile lofty statistics and set records based simply on the type of offense they play and the quality of opponents. Do those factors affect how you view such records?"
