PJReview

ANNAPOLIS AREA CHRISTIAN SCHOOL (0-1)

The Eagles are coming off of a 10-2, MIAA B conference championship, but their start of the 2012 campaign was a disappointing 44-12 loss to neighbor and MIAA C team, Severn. Coach Ken Lucas (30-22, 6 seasons) has to carefully watch playing time, because he has a limited 35 man roster. His key skill players and his star runner from last year squad, Josh McPhearson (1,800 yds) graduated. Coach Lucas uses the spread offense.

To explain the opening loss, AACS might correctly point to the absence of their top running back Perez Mackell (#6, Sr., RB/LB, 5-foot-10, 190) for much of the game (8 rushes, 55 yards) due to an injury. The stud Eagle is Maryland commit, 4.4 40 WR, Elvis Dennah (#2, Sr, WR/LB/KR, 6’4”, 210) who had no receptions against the Admirals, but returned two kicks for a total of 52 yards.

 

Having lost their four year QB starter to graduation, the Eagles are using two this season– Taylor Leabhart (#7,Sr., QB, 6’3”, 185#, 3 comp, 7att.,27yds, 1INT; 6 carries, 1yd.) and Tyler Coleman (#12,Sr., QB, 5’9”, 160#; 11 att., 5 completions,175 yds, 1TD, 1INT; 8 carries, -57 yds.). Leabhart also moved to the WR position where he caught 4 passes for 148 yards.

The Eagles O line= Josh Bryan(#60,Sr. C/DT, 5’9” 225# )  Josh Best (#56, Sr. OL/DL,5’6” 225#),  Jonathan Haynes (#73, Jr., OL/DL, 6’4”, 240#), Gbenga Akinyode (#71) and Zach Scholl (#64, So., OL/DL, 6’2”, 222#)

The Eagles D will utilize many of the offensive players already noted–Bryan, Haynes, Best and Akinyode will anchor the  4 man front. Mackell (4 tackles, 2 assists) and Dennah (8 tackles)  will fill two of the linebacker roles, while Andrew Johnson #3, Jr, WR/DB), Demetrius Johnson (#24, Jr., WR/DB,6’2”, 190)[7 tackles, 1 assist], Jack Hanratty (#15, Sr., WR/DB, 6’1”, 170#) and Brady McMillan (#5, WR/DB, So., 5’8”, 180#) will populate the secondary
