Miscellaneous Stars

Here's two brother combos for the ages. #4 Nathan and #75 John Poole. #86 Travis and #24 Theomone Brooks.

"Lightning in a bottle" was what we called John Dickerson (1995-97). Injuries plagued him throughout this career, otherwise he would've gone down as one of the all-time greats.

John Poole (1991-1994) was simply the best high school offensive lineman I've ever seen. No one else is even close. He earned first-team all-state honors in 1994, despite injuries to BOTH his ankles.

Rafael Garcia (1990-92) walked off a plane from Barcelona, Spain and went straight to the Eagles' practice field. He had never even seen a football before, but established himself as the Eagles best-ever Placekicker. He and Herman Moore share the Eagle record for longest field goal (48). He hit 9 field goals in 1992. Garcia went on to a stellar career at Virginia.

Three of the best offensive linemen in school history (Archie Glass, John Poole, and Kenyatta Towles) hit the sled in 1994.

Eric Thompson, Micah Knight, and Nick Walton captained the 2000 Eagles.

Nick Logan, Richard Williams, T.J. Price, and Dominique Fitzgerald were the captains of a 2007 Eagles team that made the Regional Championship game.

Eddie Martin poses with 1998 captains Sean Talbert and Antwain Kirby.

Darry Wimbush, Jeff Compton and Ricky Sittle captained the 1999 edition of the Eagles.

We affectionately called D.J. Jackson "midget."  He might be my favorite Eagle player ever.  He ran for over a thousand yards and scored 15 touchdowns from 1999-2001.

A flashy dresser with a penchant for the big play, Dominique Fitzgerald was a three-year, two-way starter from 2005-2007.   He scored 13 touchdowns and amassed over a thousand receiving yards.

Everett Woods (right) was Eddie Martin's Defensive Coordinator for more than a decade.   He was named Head Coach after Martin died and piloted the Eagles for three years, leading them to two playoff berths and one appearance in the Regional Championships.

Haylen Murphy was one of the most prolific runners in Eagle history.  He set a school record against Page with 325 on 23 carries.

Justin Ferrell was a two-year starter at Defensive Back who also turned some big plays on offense.   He went on to an all-conference career at North Carolina A&T. 

Marcus Dodson won the "Hammer" award in 2003.   He was a two-time all-district pick at Defensive End.

Chris McDuffie was a four-year varsity star at G.W.  He starred at Linebacker, Defensive Tackle, and Offensive Line---and even played some Tight End!   He went on to an All-ACC career at Clemson.

Nick Logan was a three-year starter for Dan Newell at Linebacker.   Pound-for-pound, one of the hardest hitters I've seen.

Orion Martin was a two-way star at G.W. in the early 2000's.  After a brief stop at Norfolk State, he went on to an All-ACC career at Virginia Tech.

Patrick Clifton was the Eagles' punter for three years, excelling in an often-overlooked position.

Greg Thompson anchored the rushing attack on Dan Newell's early Eagle teams, gaining more than a thousand yards.

Tim Moore was one of the more versatile stars to wear the Silver Bonnett.  In his four-year varsity career he served as a starting quarterback, free safety, kick returner and specialist---running several successful fake punts.

T.J. Price holds virtually every G.W. career passing record.   He was a three-year starter who saw significant duty as a Freshman.  He was a two-time all-district selection.

Zach Gibson joined with Nik Logan to form one of the best linebacking duos in Eagle history.   Gibson started three years and contributed on offense as well.

Zach Smith was one of the best Eagles' kickers in recent years.  He has the most field goals of anyone not named Rafael Garcia.

Tahron Goods was David Wilson's running mate for three years, piling up spectacular numbers for a "number-two" running back.
