Where are they now: Jelani Jenkins, Sean Stanley and more

Many players from our area take their skills to play in college, some even to the NFL. These kids are the same kids that you grew up with and more likely than not dominated your high school team. Some will forget about these guys, but others ask, “Where are they now?” We have the answers.

Forestville graduate Kevin Dorsey had his best games of the season for Maryland. Dorsey had eight catches for 77 yards, but the Terps lost, 31-10, to ACC foe Wake Forest.

Penn State beat Ohio State, 20-14, earning its first win since the firing of Joe Paterno. Junior Sean Stanley, from Gaithersburg, provided help on defensive with four tackles (3 solo) and added heavy pressure on Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller.

Week after week, DeMatha’s Marcus Coker continues to impress; Coker rushed for 139 yards on 30 carries and had one touchdown in Iowa’s 31-21 win over a scrappy Purdue team. With the victory, the Hawkeyes eliminated Purdue from bowl consideration and assured themselves of a winning record.

Veteran tight end Vernon Davis, a Dunbar product now playing for the San Francisco 49ers, had a solid game against an NFC West opponent, the Arizona Cardinals. Davis recorded five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown en route to a 23-7 win that put the 49ers closer to clinching the division.
