Weekend wrap – Stewart's squad moves on

Jimmy Stewart's Island Coast squad is just one win away from the Florida Class 2B championship game.

The Maryland-bound linebacker got the Gators on the board early in their 42-21 win over Orlando Lake Highland Prep.

[Evan Jager's] third pass of the game was into the waiting arms of Gator defensive end Jimmy Stewart.

The Maryland recruit corralled the ball and sprinted 15 yards into the end zone to put his team up, 13-0 only three minutes into the game.

• Terps offensive line pledge Andrew Zeller will play in the Pennsylvania District 3 Class AAAA championship game after his Red Lion team recorded a 14-0 win over Daniel Boone.

The 6-6, 286-pound Zeller, who accepted a Division I college scholarship to the University of Maryland, helped toss the shutout by batting down three pass attempts and joining with other down linemen, Brooks Arnold, Warren Johnson and Nick Kocman to close the running lanes for most of the night.

• UM fullback commitment Tyler Cierski's senior season came to an end Friday with Mill Creek's 27-14 loss to Colquitt County in the Georgia Class AAAAA quarterfinals.

The Packers appeared unimpressed with Cierski’s size and 745 yards rushing. He had just eight yards on eight carries, although he did catch four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown.

• Maryland offensive line recruit Stephen Grommer picked up an honor this week from the local media in Spartanburg, S.C.

Spartanburg offensive lineman Stephen Grommer is the ESPN 1400 AM/97.1 FM Hawg of the Week. The Maryland commitment and Shrine Bowl selection consistently graded out at 90 percent during the season.
