  • Tested and true

    Tested and true
    A Dallas Cowboys fan, Shawne Alston appreciates how Marion Barber takes over in the fourth quarter. Yet Alston plays for a team that wins on the average by 50 points a game, which means he's usually not needed in the fourth quarter. He had a feeling that...
  • Phantoms call on 'D,' and it answers

    They hadn't played any games like this, games that went deep into the fourth quarter, where every play becomes critical and your focus and your resolve are tested. Phoebus had kneecapped its first 12 opponents on the way to the Peninsula District title...
  • Quietly explosive

    Quietly explosive
    By this point of the season, you've probably heard and/or read that Phoebus has a mighty good defense. Nine shutouts in 13 games, 32 points allowed all season … could it be the best defense ever seen around these parts? But with all that attention,...
  • Clash of Titans II

    Clash of Titans II
    It serves as a constant reminder. Whenever someone is too tired to press on, it's there. Whenever someone even thinks about giving only 98 percent, it's there. If you weren't paying attention as you studied the wall of Phoebus' weight room, you might not...
  • Phoebus defense plays just too quick, hungry

    They hang their hat on defense over on Ireland Street, which meant that Phoebus' piano wiring of defending state champ Stone Bridge was all the more satisfying. The Phantoms blitzed and smacked and disrupted and smothered darn near everything that...
  • Phoebus report card

    REPORT CARD OFFENSE AThe philosophy was grind-it-out, and it worked. From the opening drive, when Shawne Alston carried on 10 of 12 plays, the Phantoms challenged Dinwiddie to stop the run. And the Generals couldn't. Alston finished with 237 of...
  • Finished Business

    — Different championships have different origins. For Phoebus, which was bounced from last year's playoffs in such crushing fashion, this one was 12 months in the making. It was Dec. 1, 2007, when the Phantoms lost to Stone Bridge in a Group AAA...
  • Incomparable team delights coach

    So when did it become obvious that these Phoebus Phantoms were pretty special? Was it when they waxed Bethel 52-0 in the second week of the season? When they followed that with three more shutouts in a row? Maybe it was when they blew out Hampton as...
  • Who's best of best?

    Nothing stirs discussion like excellence in sports. Achievement begs comparison as naturally as night follows day. When success is measured in time as well as results, comparisons are easier. Though all four men won Olympic gold medals, sprinter Usain...
  • 2008 Football All-Stars first-team defense

    FIRST-TEAM DEFENSE LINE Demetrius Ward Phoebus, senior Combined terrific size (6-foot-3, 210 pounds) with quickness to make life miserable for opposing quarterbacks. Scored four defensive touchdowns during the season. LINE Will Hill Lafayette,...
  • 2008 Football players of the year: Shawne Alston, Dominik Davenport

    2008 Football players of the year: Shawne Alston, Dominik Davenport
    They'd known each other for years, of that much it was agreed. But for exactly how long, and how they first met, those details were a little foggy. Until one day last summer when Shawne Alston told Dominik Davenport how they first became teammates way...
  • Boyd's roller-coaster ride nearing an end

    Boyd's roller-coaster ride nearing an end
    The date on the Boyd family calendar is circled: February 4th. That's National Signing Day, the first day high school football prospects can sign their letters-of-intent. Phoebus quarterback Tajh Boyd hopes to have announced his pick by then. As of now,...
