Trevor Jones Richmond Spiders Recruit

Charles City football star Trevor Jones signed a national letter of intent with the University of Richmond today, the first day of National Signing Day for high school athletes who are going to play sports at the College level.  He was accompanied by many members of his family, members of the school board, his football coaches and other members of the school faculty.  Trevor’s parents were glowing with pride as he signed to play football on a scholarship that will provide a full ride.  He will join a solid Richmond Spiders football program where he is projected to play wide receiver.

Jones is a multi sport standout player in football, basketball and track & field at Charles City County High School.  In just his senior year, he amassed over 700 yards passing, over 500 yards rushing and over 500 yards receiving in just 11 games.  Jones played in nearly every down on both sides of the ball, including special teams where he was the team’s punter and a kick returner.  In addition, Jones scored 28 touchdowns in his senior season which included 12 passing touchdowns, 9 rushing touchdowns, 5 receiving touchdowns, 1 interception return for a touchdown and a punt return for a TD in only eleven games.  Jones also scored over 25 point after conversions by an additional assortment of runs, catches and throws.  Jones was a crucial part of the defense where he registered 60 tackles.

Jones’ breakaway speed, toughness and good decision making ability caught the eye of various colleges from around Virginia and Maryland, but Jones ultimately decided to stay close to home and join a very respected private school at the University of Richmond.  The Richmond Spiders won the NCAA Division I National Football Championship in 2008 and currently have several former players that are now playing in the NFL, including Eric Ward, Tim Hightower and Paris Lenon.  The Spiders also picked up several players from other small schools in Region A such as Franklin’s Justin Grant and West Point’s Aaron Roane.

Panthers lose to Sussex Central 44 to 52 in Playoff Game

Charles City County 44, Sussex Central 52

Varsity Playoff Football Game on November 19, 2010

Charles City vs. Sussex Central High in Playoff Game

The Panthers’ season came to end last Friday night after a hard fought playoff game with Sussex Central. In front of a lively Charles City crowd, the Panthers played their best but in the end it wasn’t quite enough as the Sussex Central Tigers came out ahead in a high scoring game, 52 to 44.

The Panthers went down early after Sussex was able to get two quick scores and were up 16-0. This year’s team had been in these situations before and responded well by fighting back to score 3 consecutive touchdowns, which included an interesting play where senior Joseph Tabb Jr picked up the football after the Sussex player thought the ball was dead on a lateral. Tabb scooped the ball up and ran it back for a Touchdown to the delight of all the Panthers and their faithful audience.

Sussex responded on the next drive with a quarterback keeper by Tyquan Johnson who ran it in from 36 yards out. Charles City got the ball back, but Panther QB Trevor Jones’ pass was deflected and landed in the hands of Sussex’s gigantic nose tackle Craishawn Ellis who returned it 35 yards to the endzone to put the tigers up 30-20 after the conversion.

Charles City started their next drive with under a minute left to play. Trevor Jones led a quick drive that ended with a 34 yard touchdown pass to Terrance Banks as time expired going into the half. Tabb ran in the conversion to cut the lead to 28-30 at halftime.

In the 2nd half, Sussex scored three touchdowns and Charles City scored two more. The game ended with a final score of Tigers 52, Panthers 44. Sussex was led by three players, Sharheem Taylor, Tyquan Johnson and Tyrod Skipper who all rushed for over 100 yards.

Charles City had another great game by Trevor Jones who threw for 217 yards to go along with 4 touchdown tosses. Dominique Williams and Terrance Banks both had two touchdown receptions apiece.

Since 1999 and prior to this game, Sussex had outscored Charles City 573 to 98 in 13 games which were all won by Sussex. This year’s Panther team nearly came up with the win against Sussex and definitely earned some respect to not take the Panthers lightly. Despite not having a JV team, having most players play both sides of the field during virtually the entire game and playing against schools who consistently have double and triple the amount of players, the Panthers made no excuses and can hold their heads up high for what they did accomplish. This year’s team nearly beat Sussex and during the season had another game came down to the wire in an epic overtime loss against Division 2 school Lancaster who are currently in the Region A finals in Division 2. In addition, the Panthers beat contender West Point and up to this point are the only team to beat top ranked Franklin who will be playing Sussex next week for the Region A , Division 1 final.

Trevor Jones had a sensational season to culminate his high school football career at Charles City County. This season, Jones ran for over 500 yards, had over 500 receiving yards and passed for over 700 yards. In addition, he threw 12 touchdowns, rushed for 9 touchdowns and caught 5 touchdowns for a total of 26 touchdowns in 11 games. This does not include his countless two point conversions by either running or throwing. Jones also played defense and was on special teams. He returned one punt for a touchdown and returned an interception for a TD to go along with 60 tackles for the year.

Varsity Football Game on November 12, 2010

Amelia County vs. Charles City County

Charles City went to Amelia County for their last game of the regular season this past friday night with the intentions of winning and taking first place in the Region A, Division 1 playoffs.  However, Amelia County also desperately needed a win in order to qualify for the Region B, Division 1 playoffs after they had to forfeit two earlier seasons wins because of using an ineligible player previously.  Amelia scored an early touchdown and held on to win 13-0.

Amelia got the game started with an onside kick and recovery.  The Raiders were threatning to score, when Panther Terrance Banks stripped the ball away from the runningback and Charles City was able to recover the ball.  Unfortunately, the Panthers struggled to move the ball consistently throughout the night and this drive ended on a fake punt that was intercepted.  The Raiders would get on the board after a short touchdown run and the point after kick bounced in.

There wasn’t much scoring in the game and Amelia got its second score of the night when running back AJ Coleman took it in from just a few yards out to start the second quarter.  The conversion failed, but these would be the only points that the Raiders needed for the night as Charles City got into the red zone on numerous occasions but were shut down every time by Amelia’s defense.

The Panther defense was led by Dominick Barbour and Dominique Williams who both had 12 tackles each. In addition to Terrance Banks’ fumble strip and recovery, he also had an interception.

Charles City ends its regular season with a winning record of 6-4. The Panthers are the 3rd seed in the regional playoffs and will face Sussex Central who have dominated the Panthers for the past 11 years. The Sussex Central Tigers eliminated the Panthers from the playoffs last year and the Charles City is seeking some revenge when they travel to Sussex on Friday night.

Panthers beat Surry County Cougars 38 to 6

Surry 6, Charles City 38

Varsity Football Game on November 5, 2010

Charles City County vs. Surry County

The Charles City Panther football team is heading back to the playoffs for a second year in a row after beating the Surry County Cougars by a score of 38 to 6.  With this win, plus three of the four other teams competing with Charles City losing on Friday night, the Panthers have secured a spot in the Regional A, Division 1 playoffs.  Colonial Beach lost to Lancaster, West Point lost to King William and Franklin beat Sussex Central.  This now leaves Charles City in a three way tie with Franklin and Sussex Central for the tri-rivers district lead.  Next week is the final game of the regular season and the results will determine if Charles City will be hosting a home playoff game for the first time in many years.

Charles City started this game off just like they have in many games, with a quick touchdown.  After a nice trick play to get into Surry territory, Trevor Jones caught a pass on the 2nd play of the drive and ran it down the sideline for a touchdown.  After just 30 seconds into the game, Charles City was up 6-0.

After Surry’s first drive stalled out, they were forced to punt at around midfield.  Charles City started their second drive at their own 40 yard line.   Another quick drive ended with a short Joseph Tabb touchdown run.  After the conversion failed, Charles City was up by 12 points.

After an onside kick, Charles City once again had the ball. A few plays later, Gregory Cotman ran it in for a touchdown and Joseph Tabb followed it up by running the conversion in. Charles City was leading 20 to nothing with just over two minutes remaining in the first quarter.

On their next drive, Surry again couldn’t get much going and was forced to punt. However, on just the 2nd play of their drive Charles City fumbled and Surry recovered it. Surry started with good field possession and was able to drive deep into Charles City territory when the Panther defense made several good plays. The first being a pass to an open Surry player on the left side of the field that was deflected by Dominick Harris who was able to get free on the end and deflect the pass away. The second defensive highlight on this drive was an interception in the endzone by Dominick Barbour.

After a touchback, Charles City got their next drive started at the 20 yard line. This 80 yard drive to the endzone was highlighted by several great catches. Trevor Jones was able to get a first down on a long pass by his brother, Avery Jones. A few plays later and with just 17 seconds left before the half, Trevor Jones switched up and was the quarterback on a pass to the endzone where Dominique Williams made an athletic jump in the air and was able to pull the ball down for a toucdhown over Surry defender William Newby.

Surry got things off to a good start in the 2nd half but it would last long. William Newby took a deep kickoff back for a long run before he was finally run down by Barbour just a few yards shy of the endzone. However, on the very next play Avery Jones forced a fumble just as Surry was about to run it in for a score and Gregory Cotman Jr came up with the recovery at the one yard line.

Charles City took the ball over and got some breathing room when Terrance Banks made a catch and a run for a first down. Charles City was driving when a mishandled snap was recovered by surry standout LaDarryl Birchette. Fortunately for the Panthers, the defense was to the ocassion again and panther lineman Jaelen Williams made a good tackle at the line of scrimage, the Surry Cougars were forced to punt yet again.

During the punt Joseph Tabb Jr was able to beat a blocker and blocked the kick. Jaelen Williams was right there again for the fumble recovery. After a quick drive that was highlighted by several catches in the middle of the field by Gregory Cotman Jr, senior running back Dominick Barbour ran for a touchdown from 2 yards out. The extra point kick was no good, but the Panthers were up big with a score of 32 to nothing.

Surry would finally get on the board during their next drive which was led by Darryl Birchette who made several nice runs with one of them being on a two yard TD. The extra piont failed when Avery Jones deflected a Cougar pass in the corner of the endzone.

The next Panther drive got off to a quick start when Gregory Cotman Jr took a reverse and beat several defenders to take the ball across midfield and into Cougar territory. Unfortunately, after consecutive incompletions the Panthers turned the ball over on downs. Surry got the ball but after another nice run by Birchette, their drive stalled out and the Panthers again got the ball back after Dominick Harris, along with Trevor Jones were able to tackle Surry QB Timothy Thomas after he was pressued out of the pocket.

Charles City got off to another quick drive when Tabb broke through the Surry defense and sprinted 63 yard for his longest run of the year. He was tackled just before the goaline, but he was able to finish the 2 play drive on the next possession with a 2 yard TD run. The Cougars got the ball back but were not able find the endzone again and the game ended with a score of 38 to 6.

Charles City will play at Amelia County next week. This will be an important game for Charles City as it will help shape who plays where in the regional playoffs. Charles City beat Amelia last year by a score of 28 to 14, but Amelia’s team this year has improved from the 2-8 record that they finished with in 2009. Amelia beat previously undefeated Buckingham County on Friday night and currently have a record of 6-3. One of Amelia’s loses this year came to a Group AA team and their other two loses have been by one score.

Charles City 0, Sussex Central 42

Varsity Football Game on October 29, 2010

Charles City County vs. Sussex County

Sussex Central dominated Charles City last friday night.  The Tigers beat the panthers on both sides of the ball by constantly pressuring both of Charles City’s quarterbacks with nearly constant blitzes, attempting numerous onside kicks and utilizing a good combination of compact but strong and speedy running backs.

Charles City knew that Sussex was going to be a tough place to get a win at.  Last year Sussex beat Charles City twice, once in the regular season and again in the playoffs.  Sussex Central is a perennial power in football among division 1 schools.  Over the previous 11 years (from 1999 until 2009), Sussex has been to the playoffs every year except for one year and have amassed 100 wins during that time with only 34 loses.  The Tigers won the state championship in 2003 and have won the district title 7 times in the past 10 years.  Sussex’s two loses this year came at the hands of a Group AA team and Division 2 power King William.

Sussex got on the board early during their first drive when running back Tyrod Skipper ran it in from 23 yards out.

On the following kickoff, Sussexx attempted the first of many onside kick attempts.  Charles City recovered the onside kick and began its first and what would end up being their only possession of the first quarter.  The drive started off promising for the Panthers after Trevor Jones ran for a first down, but Sussex would stop the next 4 plays and get the ball back.  On the second play of the drive, running back Tyrod Skipper ran virtually the same play as his previous touchdown and went untouched for a long run into Charles City territory.  On their third play on the drive, running back Sharheem Taylor would run right up the middle untouched and then break a tackle in the secondary for a 33 yard touchdown run.  This would be Taylor’s first of three touchdowns on the night.  After the conversion failed, Sussex was up 14-0.

During the next kickoff, Sussex would again use a short kick, but this time they recovered.

Three plays later, Sussex was again in the endzone after a 30 yard touchdown run up the middle by running back Denard Ashby. Sharheem Taylor would get the conversion run after being hardly touched.

The next kickoff was again an onside kick and Sussex recovered it once more.

The next drive by Sussex led them into the 2nd quarter with the Tigers up by 22 points. The drive ended with a 2 yard touchdown run up the middle by Tyshad Skipper. Denard Ashby ran the 2 point conversion up the middle to put sussex up by 30 points.

On the next kickoff, Sussex again tried an onside kick but this time Avery Jones scopped the ball up and made a nice run before being tackled.

Charles City started their drive off but couldn’t get much going against a quick Sussex defense that was putting a lot of pressure on the QBs and getting in the backfield all night long. During the short drive, QB Trevor Jones did make a nice scramble to avoid a sack. However, on the next play he was sacked and this led to a turnover on downs.

Sussex got the ball back but on their fourth play of the drive, Charles City stripped the ball from the running back and got possession back. The panthers were driving just before halftime thanks in large part to several nice catches by Trevor Jones and Dominic Jones, plus numerous penalties against Sussex. The Tigers comitted a total of 11 penalties on the night compared to just 3 by the Panthers.

Charles City had a first and goal situation at about the one yard line but were stopped on 3 consecutive runs. On fourth down and just seconds before halftime, Charles City QB Trevor Jones rolled out to his left and was being chased down by several Tiger defenders when he threw an interception to Sharheem Taylor. The half ended with Charles City down by 30.

Charles City would get the ball back to start the second half after Sussex kicked its first regular kickoff. However, after just 4 plays Sussex would get the ball back on downs. A few plays later, Sharheem Taylor ran it in from 3 yards out.

Charles City got the ball back after the kickoff but a short drive stalled out and Sussex got the ball back at about midfield. The very next play, Sharheem Taylor ran to the right side of the line, then cut it back to the outside and went untouched for a 46 yard touchdown run. After Charles City stopped the conversion, the score was 42-0.

Despite being up by 42 points in the 4th quarter, Sussex again kicked an onside kick and recovered it. A few plays later, Denard Ashby made a good run into Charles City territory but Avery Jones was able to strip the ball loose during the tackle and Dominick Barbour was there for the recovery.

Charles City was unable to find the endzone on the final possesion of the game. The final score was Sussex 42, Charles City 0.

Sussex attempted only one pass play the entire game. Charles City recovered 2 fumbles during the game. The Panthers have done very well this year with stripping the ball away from opponents.

Charles City now has a record of 5-3 as Sussex ups their record to 6-2. The Panthers are fighting for a playoff spot among other Region A, Division 1 teams such as Colonial Beach, Franklin, Sussex and West Point. The panthers will play Surry County this friday for their last scheduled home game of the regular season.

Charles City County Homecoming game vs. Franklin Broncos

Charles City celebrated its homecoming game with a dramatic win over the previously undefeated Franklin Broncos.

The Broncos got off to a fast start against the Panthers. It took just over a minute into the game when Franklin Runningback Martinez Hill ran into the endzone for a touchdown. The Broncos were up 8-0 after Hill also ran in the conversion. After the Panthers couldn’t get anything going on offense, the Broncos got the ball back and again wasted little time before their other main running back, Melquan Mitchell ran it in for a 25 yard TD. The broncos were up 15-0 after the extra point kick.

The Panthers would get the ball back again, but Panther standout Trevor Jones threw his first interception of the year right into the hands of Martinez Hill. A few plays later, Hill ran for another touchdown. A bad snap on the conversion kick resulted in a failed play, but Franklin was up big just 10 minutes into the game. The score was 21-0 for Franklin after the first quarter.

Charles City started to get things going in the 2nd quarter but they still couldn’t stop the Bronco’s offense. Charles City standout Trevor Jones started to turn it up a notch along with running back Joseph Tabb who had one of his best games of the year. Trevor Jones would end the drive with a 4 yard TD run and Tabb ran in the conversion to make the score 21-8.

Franklin answered right back with a long drive that ended on a 1 yard TD run by Melquan Mitchell. After the conversion failed, the Broncos were up 27-8.

Charles City got the ball back with less than 45 seconds left before halftime. Charles City was making progess when QB Trevor Jones got clear of the pass rushers and had an open field to run, but made a quick and good decision to throw the ball just before he crossed the line of scrimage. Jones’ 26 yard pass went over several Bronco defenders and into the hands of Dominick Barbour in the endzone for a TD. Joseph Tabb made a nice run with a spin move to break a tackle and get a sucessful two point conversion.

There were only 11 seconds in the game when Charles City kicked the ball off. Franklin speedster Justin Grant received the ball and made a good run to bring the ball back into Charles City territory at the 30 yard line with just one second remaining.

One the next play, Franklin QB Trey Kigler dropped back in the pocket and passed the ball to Prince Lockhart who made the reception at the one yard line. Lockhart was able to outjump several Panther defenders and as he was coming down he was able to get into the endzone for a touchdown with no time left on the clock. The score at halftime was Franklin 33, Charles City 16.

The Panthers came out with a vengance in the 3rd quarter. Avery Jones received the 2nd half kickoff and ran it 71 yards down the sideline for a touchdown. Joeseph Tabb made another 2 point conversion and the Panthers were now down 24 to 33.

The panthers defense stopped the Broncos on their next drive.

Charles City got the ball back and Trevor Jones led a quick drive that ended when he sprinted to the endzone on a 14 yard run. The conversion failed, but Charles City had cut the lead to 3 points. The score was now 30 to 33.

On the next drive, Franklin utilized Justin Grant on a reverse run and he was able to run it in from 53 yards out. Martinez Hill made the conversion run and kept the Broncos ahead with the score 40-30.

Charles City got the ball back and looked to continue its strong second half comeback attempt. During this drive,Trevor Jones was sacked by a swarming Bronco defense.

However, this seemed to just motivate Jones as ran for a 56 yard touchdown on the very next play.

Trevor Jones made a pass to Dominic Jones who was wide open in the endzone to compete the conversion attempt. The Panthers had again cut the lead, but were still down 40-38.

During the next drive, the Broncos were making progress and the 4 quarter had begun. Martinez Hill made a nice run for a first down.

On the next play, Hill went up the middle on a long run. As Hill was running, Charles City defenders Dominick Barbour and Terrance Banks were closing in from behind. Just as Hill was about to cross the goaline, Barbour was able to strip the ball out. Barbour and Banks recovered the ball for a touchback. This play proved to be very crucial and a big turning point in the game. Barbour had several forced fumbles during the game, but this one was the most important as it prevented another Bronco score late in the game.

Charles City drove down the field and it was capped off with another touchdown run by Trevor Jones. The conversion failed but Charles City had gained the lead for the first time. The score was now 44 to 41 in Charles City’s favor.

The Broncos got the ball back but by this time the momentum had shifted in Charles City’s favor as the homecoming crowd became involved and made it difficult for the Bronco’s offense to hear the snap count as Franklin committed several false start penalties in what was a rather low penalty game. The Broncos were ultimately stopped and Charles City got the ball back. From here, the Panthers easily ran the clock out to win an important Tri-Rivers district game against the Franklin Broncos who had been undefeated and ranked high in the state polls.

Charles City now has a record of 5-2 as Franklin goes to 7-1. The Panthers will travel to Sussex Central next week to face a very tough team with a potent offense.
