His best wide receiver from last season graduated, but H.D. Woodson senior QB Eddie McGee enters tomorrow's game against Eastern with nearly as many passing yards in seven games as he had all of last season. McGee has completed 76 of 135 passes for 1,088 yards and 10 touchdowns, after finishing with 60 completions for 1,100 yards in 2004.
The Warriors lost their first five games, but McGee has thrown for 326 yards and three touchdowns in the past two games, both wins for Woodson (2-5, 1-0 DCIAA East). McGee's favorite targets are Tony Coleman (30 catches, 391 yards) and Donnell Graves (38 catches, 413 yards). . . .
Magruder is 2-0 since senior QB Mitch Levine returned from a high ankle sprain he sustained during a season-opening loss to Quince Orchard. Levine passed for seven touchdowns and ran for another, as Magruder (3-2) averaged 51 points per game in wins over Blake and Walter Johnson.
"He brings another dimension to our offense that really helps us get going," said Magruder Coach Doug Miller, whose team faces Northwest (3-2) tonight. "We have a young line and all we could do was run the ball when he was out. We've got some receivers who can catch, and he can get the ball to them." . . .
Mount Hebron has scored 122 points this season, and Chris Eccleston is responsible for 98 of them. Eccleston has rushed for 14 touchdowns, caught two scoring passes and scored one two-point conversion for the Vikings (3-2, 2-2). His point total leads Howard County.
