    London's base in place

    When Jarod Brown ran into Jeremy St. Pierre in the fall of 2007 at Grafton High, Brown wasn't expecting an unofficial football recruiting pitch. Shoot, Brown didn't even know if this football thing was really for him. As a first-year kicker in 2007 on...

  • Coaches say U.Va. not a tough sell

    Though Ritchie McKay knows his professional life will always be a challenge as long as he's recruiting men's basketball players against programs like Duke and North Carolina, he doesn't believe it could possibly be as difficult as his time at Portland...
  • Payne an improbable U.Va. star

    In the 2005 state championship game, Oakton High's Keith Payne dominated Landstown's Percy Harvin. Four years later, Payne was out of football, a certifiable bust at the University of Virginia. Meanwhile, Harvin was earning NFL Offensive Rookie of the...
