Nevertheless, Brooks, also a starting linebacker, has been a steadying influence in the offensive backfield during D-C’s 2-0 start. The senior helped salt away a 36-22 win at Elgin in the season opener with a 19-yard touchdown in the second half, part of an 85-yard, 13-carry performance.

  • What’s in a name? MacDonnells holding their own in California wine country Sep 10, 2014 6:30 AM

Jalen Brunson penetrated a mob of friends and classmates, including football players wearing pads, faculty and staff, and reporters and cameras inside a cramped room in Stevenson’s district building Wednesday.
