Around the league

Flint Hill had won four consecutive league titles until Potomac School ended the Huskies’ four-year run as league champs last season, and the two teams are expected to battle for first place again this season. . . . Flint Hill is led by QB Andy Rehberger, who has experienced targets in WRs Chrystian Brown and Nick Bazzarone. OL-DL Harrison Gray is the team’s leader up front. . . . Potomac School must replace its entire offensive line and many key leaders. CBs Cullen Hamiltonand Davon Hill had six interceptions apiece last season and, along with three-year starter FS Ryan Eckert, give the Panthers strength in the secondary. . . . Maret only has six seniors on the roster, but one is Maryland recruit Sean Davis, who will play wideout, running back and defensive back. QB-CB Tre Henderson and WR-CB Khalil Edley also have received college interest. . . . Sidwell Friends (0-9) has an experienced offensive line led by Nicky Kirsch, Gerald Wagner, Will Mendez and TE Stephen Weiner.
