Michigan State recruits Damion Terry and Delton Williams, who are standout football players at Cathedral Prep, have accepted invitations to play in the Chesapeake Bowl on Dec. 29 in Washington D.C. The game will take place at 2 p.m. at the Marvin F. Wilson Stadium in the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex. The Chesapeake Bowl, which began in 2010 and is nicknamed the “Civil War”, matches up senior all-stars from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware (North) against all-stars from Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C. and West Virginia (South).

The South won 30-27 in the inaugural game in 2010 before the North won last year 28-17. Archbishop Wood graduate Nate Smith returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown last year, while Central Catholic quarterback ran for 82 yards and threw for one touchdown. Furness graduate Sharif Smith scored on a five-yard touchdown and was effective on the ground to be named the game’s MVP.

Bishop McDevitt coach Jeff Weachter will be the head coach of the North. Interestingly enough, he might have to coach against Terry and Williams in a few weeks if McDevitt and Prep meet in the PIAA semifinals.

Final rosters will be announced at a later date.

Quinn Thompson

DeShawn Coleman

Damion Terry

Artrel Foster

Meadville’s Artrel Foster is the latest in a series of District 10 skill-position players who have committed to major colleges.

When Foster announced that he had picked Temple recently, he became the fourth high-profile skill-position player from the district to commit to a major college before his senior season.

Foster joins Cathedral Prep quarterback Damion Terry (Michigan State), Hickory running back DeShawn Coleman (West Virginia) and General McLane tight end Quinn Thompson (Connecticut) on that list.

At least two other skill-position players in D-10 are being recruited: McDowell running back/defensive end James Conner and Cathedral Prep running back/safety Delton Williams. Pitt is among those interested in Conner, while Williams has more than a dozen offers, including Michigan State and Nebraska.
