All-Met Watch | Football

Previous: Preseason | Week 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

With one more week remaining for the All-Met Watch, a few changes are afoot. Two running backs join the squad: River Hill’s Kevin Johnson made an earlier appearance at defensive back, while this is Khalek Shepherd’s debut. This week’s toughest decision was dropping T.J. Peeler to the bubble after he was ejected following his first carry this past Friday – a 63-yard touchdown run that was followed by two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties for excessive celebration.
