Taylor Picks The Seminoles!

Congratulations to standout Thomas Dale lineman Darvin Taylor, who announced at a press conference this afternoon at the school, with his parents and teammates watching, that he would continue his football and academic careers at Florida State University!

Taylor told HCS Media Network he was relieved to have this decision behind so he could focus on enjoying his senior season as a Knight, and help Thomas Dale be successful in 2014.

Taylor, who is celebrating his 17th birthday today, was born in Germany and praised his parents, both retired from long careers in the military, for much of his upbringing.

FIELD HOCKEY: Day 1 Sees Three County Wins...

Field Hockey kicked off its 2014 season Monday, and for county teams, it was mostly a successful start.

In the only game involving two county schools, Clover Hill got a hat trick from Madison Lindsay as the Cavaliers defeated Matoaca 3-0. The Warriors (0-1) finished second in the Conference 12 Tournament last season, advancing to 5A South Region play before being eliminated by eventual state semifinalist Lee-Davis.

Monacan and Midlothian were both winners in early season Conference 20 showdowns. Danielle Gilmore and Austyn Faries each scored twice for the Chiefs as Monacan shut out Glen Allen on the road 5-0 last night to start the season at 1-0.

For Midlothian, it was a tougher battle than expected at conference rival Hanover. In a rematch of a tournament semifinal from last year won by the Trojans 1-0, Midlothian and Hanover played 60 minutes, then 15 more, finishing at 1-1, forcing penalty strokes.

Francesca Urcia, Allison Gonzalez and Sophia Richie each scored on Hanover goalkeeper Rachel Weis, and the Trojans outlasted the Hawks 3-1 in penalty strokes for a 4-2 final score.

Midlothian next welcomes Glen Allen for a 7pm match Wednesday, Monacan welcomes Hanover to town also at 7pm Wednesday, while Clover Hill goes to Prince George for another Conference 12 battle, Thursday at 4pm.

RECRUITING: Skyhawks Star Kenny Williams Says Yes To Shaka....

He's staying home.

Standout L.C. Bird basketball player Kenny Williams, who has spent the summer impressing college coaches in tournament play, announced on Twitter Wednesday that he will commit to Shaka Smart and the VCU Rams.

Williams, who led the Skyhawks to the verge of the Group 5A State Tournament last year, falling by a point to eventual state runner-up Henrico in the 5A South Region Semifinals, had been courted by the likes of North Carolina, 2013 national runner-up Michigan, coached by former University of Richmond head John Belein, and Georgetown.




Williams told Scout.com the opportunity to stay close to home loomed large in his final decision. He is Smart's first committed recruit from the Class of 2015, and is rated as a top 100 guard by ESPN.

Follow Williams, Malik Johnson, C.J. Miles, Thomas Taylor and new Skyhawks Jalen Elliott and Gus Rowland come November as L.C. Bird tries to bring a state basketball title to Chester by following us on Twitter, @cfieldsports, and listening to live Skyhawks coverage on HCS Media Network.
