Gaithersburg native Jarell Broxton has verbally committed to play college football at Baylor.
Broxton, a 6-foot-6, 325-pound offensive lineman from Lackawanna College, chose the Big 12 Conference school over offers from Arizona State, Florida Atlantic, Syracuse, UCLA and Wisconsin.
SILVER SPRING – Dozens of well-wishers packed into the lobby at the Sheraton Hotel on Georgia Avenue Sunday to congratulate Jelani Jenkins.
The Good Counsel graduate made history on Saturday when the Miami Dolphins selected the Montgomery County product early in the fourth round.
Sherwood graduate Chris Grier has been hired to take over the football program at his alma mater.
Grier, the DeMatha freshman head coach since 2011, replaces Mike Bonavia who resigned last month to accept an administrative position at Einstein.
The Olney native began his coaching career in 2007 as the varsity offensive line coach and junior varsity head coach at Herricks High School in Long Island, New York.
Grier, a two-year letterman at Sherwood who played offensive and defensive line for current Good Counsel head coach Bob Milloy, graduated from West Virginia University in 2005 with a degree in Athletic Coaching Education.
