Weekend wrap — Big game for Burns
The first game of Devin Burns' senior season couldn’t have gone much better.
The Maryland quarterback commitment was “nearly flawless” in Carver (Ga.) High’s 34-6 win over Spencer on Friday.
Burns completed eight of his 10 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown in the first half, earning the Wallace Davis Hustle Award, which is given to Carver’s MVP each year.
Darnell’s first touchdown came on a redeeming drive for the offense after the Bruins turned the ball over on downs at the Southeast 26 on the game’s opening possession. McCutchen fumbled after a short run on the first play when the Raiders took over and Bruins defensive end Nermin Delic was there to hand the ball back to his teammates.
“I actually got double-teamed and I was kicked out, spinning my way out of it,” Delic said. “I saw the ball and I was going to pick it up and run with it, but I did the safe thing and just jumped on it.”
“I went unofficially,” he wrote in a text. “My older brother lives in Virginia so I was down with him. It went good.”
The two brothers joined recent Maryland commit Terrence Ross and played in pick-up games with the rest of the Terrapins squad.
Although Tobias and Terrence didn’t play together during the day, the rising senior does like the future Terrapin’s style of play.
