B-CC’s Martin To Graduate Early, Play Soccer At Wake Forest In The Fall

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School boys soccer team will lose junior Collin Martin a year earlier than expected, as it has been announced that the standout midfielder will graduate a year early in order to play for Wake Forest University in the fall.

From the Wake Forest website:

The 2012 recruiting class for Wake Forest men’s soccer, already ranked among the top five classes in the country by several websites, picked up yet another highly-touted commitment on Tuesday, March 27 when Collin Martin committed to the Demon Deacons for the 2012 season.

The third-ranked player in the class of 2013 by College Soccer News and the lone high school junior to train with the U.S. Soccer U-20 squad in January, Martin will graduate from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Maryland one year ahead of schedule and will round out the Deacs’ incoming class of eight players.

Paul Tenorio has a full writeup at the Washington Post.

Dan Harwood on Spencer Datt

Magruder High School boys basketball coach Dan Harwood took some time after his team’s victory in the Class 4A Maryland  State Championship Game to discuss the memory of Spencer Datt, who was killed in an automobile accident in 2011.

We lost Spencer Datt. He graduated in 2010, he was teammates with J.J., Garland, Nick, and Luke. All the kids knew him from my basketball camp. And it was devastating to us. Any time you lose a young person at that stage in their life in a tragic accident – it was unbelievable. But all the things you see with the shirts — the “Who Datt,” the “We Datt,” the stuff with the sayings — it was all kid-generated. You don’t have to report this stuff, I know it’s not the main story, but my team that’s the kind of kids they were. It was all kid-generated, they designed those shirts, they came up with those shirts, they have all the sayings. They were fighting for Spencer all year. I’m just so proud of them that way, and I know Spencer was looking down on us.
