Latest VHSL Football Standings....

Hermitage and Highland Springs switch positions, but rest in the knowledge they've all but clinched berths in the 5A South Region playoffs as the Virginia High School League released the latest standings Monday.

The Springers (7-1), by virtue of defeating a six-win Henrico team Friday, overtook the Panthers (8-0) by a quarter point for second place. However, Hermitage, with wins over Glen Allen and an unbeaten Douglas Freeman to close the season, would likely overtake Highland Springs for that second seed, as the Springers close against two four-win squads (currently) in Patrick Henry and Varina.

The Rebels, also 8-0, find themselves just behind Lee-Davis (7-1) in fifth place, but can vault over the Confederates with a win over the Eagles Friday and a Henrico win over Lee-Davis. However, the 6-2 Warriors, by defeating Lee-Davis, could also challenge the Rebels for the fourth seed.

Remember, you get two bonus points for each win a defeated opponent has. Thus, while defeating a team within your own region gives you, in the case of 5A, 24 points, you also receive two points for each of that opponent's wins. That is why the winner of Hermitage/Douglas Freeman November 6th could greatly enhance their playoff seeding.

As of now, it looks like, because they face a possible unbeaten team in the regular season finale November 6th, Hermitage is the only team with any chance of somehow overtaking L.C. Bird for the top seed. A James River upset of the Skyhawks would certainly provide that, but with the likelihood of Bird going 10-0, there may not be enough points, and time, left for the Panthers to catch them.

THE FINAL WORD: Two 7-0, Two 6-1 Teams in County; Rebels Roll Over Tigers

It's a season of haves and have nots in Henrico County for high school football.

Hermitage and Douglas Freeman each handily win Friday night to improve to 7-0 (see scoreboard by scrolling down the page), while Highland Springs and Henrico moved to 6-1 ahead of their showdown next Friday night at Highland Springs.

But elsewhere? It's been tough. Mills Godwin's comeback win over Deep Run pushed the Eagles to 3-4 and still alive in 5A South Central, while J.R. Tucker's loss at Freeman damaged their postseason hopes. Deep Run's disappointment adds to the frustration of a 1-6 campaign. And then there's Glen Allen, who lost their 16th straight game after leading John Marshall 21-20 at Homecoming, giving up the game's final 24 points for a 44-21 defeat to go to 0-7.

RVA Sports Network correspondent Preston Hausser brings us this report from tonight's Rebels win over the Tigers:


Some people get excited for homecoming for the dance, others for spirit week, but at Freeman it’s easy to tell what the student body gets excited for: their undefeated football team. The Rebels moved to 7-0 after picking apart a Tucker squad which had been displaying strong improvements in recent weeks, although the Tigers sit at 2-5.
                Taj Conway was electric for the Tigers in a losing effort, racking up 111 yards over the course of the evening. The running back spent most of the evening slipping through the Freeman defense and frustrating the line. Unfortunately for Tucker, their own offensive line directly impeded Conway’s rush attacks through multiple holding penalties. Tucker used three different passers, only two of which had been listed as quarterbacks before the game; Austin Pytko led all passers with 24 yards, on only one attempt, while Isaiah Jones had 15 yards on 3 of 7 passing.
                Freeman’s offense was firing on all cylinders on Friday night, especially their quarterback Trey Laughlin, who passed for 200 yards and 2 touchdowns. Jordan Smith was almost as impressive as Laughlin, rushing for 119 yards on 15 carries. Three Rebel receivers also had prolific nights: Lodiongo Elyardo, Bodhie Long and Ja’Kari Williams. On only seven receptions, they combined for 192 yards, Elyardo making up for 106 of them. The Rebels are starting to come together on offense and defense right at the best time as they head into the home stretch of the regular season.

                Next week the Rebels will travel to Deep Run to face a Wildcat team who has only one win on the season, while Tucker will look to right itself against John Marshall before its postseason hopes slip away for good.
