Tomorrow, 12:30 p.m.
At Todd Stadium,
When Hampton has the ball: Junior QB Tyrod Taylor, who has been highly recruited since his sophomore season, leads the charge for a Crabbers team that has won 16 state titles. He has rushed and passed for a combined 2,460 yards and 29 touchdowns this season.
"I know their history, and I know their quarterback is supposed to be the best in the class of 2007," Stone Bridge junior QB Terrence Glenn said. "It'll be fun being on the same field with him, since he's the best in my class, trying to play up to his level."
Stone Bridge's defense does not have overwhelming statistics, but plays aggressively, often with a 3-5 front. DE Nate Hawkins and LB Andrew Holoman (a Duke recruit) lead the unit.
When Stone Bridge has the ball: Glenn will be at the forefront of the Stone Bridge attack, having totaled 2,205 yards rushing and passing and 25 touchdowns this season. But it's the senior FB Shamar Knight-Justice who has shined the past two weeks in the Bulldogs' single-wing set, rushing for 311 yards and six touchdowns on 39 carries.
Stone Bridge will be challenged by a Hampton team that has been unwavering on defense, holding nine of its 13 opponents to seven points or less, including four shutouts. The Crabbers defense is led by junior LB Jacobi Fenner.
