This week, the West Potomac Wolverines will take on the T.C. Williams Titans Friday at 7:30 p.m. at West Potomac High School at 6500 Quander Road.

Wolverines Head Coach Jeremiah Davis said after making many mistakes during last week's game against West Springfield, they have been working on holding on to the ball and making better decisions on the field. "We have focused on protecting the ball and making good decisions when passing the ball," said Davis in a recent email. "T.C.

The Wolverines won their homecoming game against the Cavaliers, 26-13.

West Potomac’s record is now 6-2, while Woodson’s is 2-6.
In a wet, slippery game Friday night, the West Potomac Wolverines beat the Woodson Cavaliers, 26-13. The game was pretty tight all four quarters, but West Potomac eventually pulled ahead to finish with a win. West Potomac Head Coach Jeremiah Davis said the team played well, but a lot of things still didn’t go their way throughout the game. The team made a few mistakes on the field and received multiple penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct. “A lot of things didn’t go our way. We made a lot of mistakes penalty-wise, but I thought the guys did a good job by continuing to fight through the game,” Davis said. Because of the weather, West Potomac’s field was muddy and players on both sides sometimes struggled to stay on their feet. However, …

The West Potomac Wolverines will play their homecoming game against the Woodson Cavaliers.
This week, the West Potomac Wolverines will play against the Woodson Cavaliers at West Potomac High School at 7:30 p.m. at 6500 Quander Road for the Wolverines’ homecoming. The Wolverines were unable to score at all against Westfield last week, with a final score of 0-49.

Wolverines Head Coach Jeremiah Davis said the team plans to eliminate mistakes to win this week's homecoming game. "Our keys to victory this week will be eliminating those mistakes and protecting the football," said Davis.

The Wolverines lose to the Bulldogs, 0-49.
Friday night, the West Potomac Wolverines went head-to-head with the Westfield Bulldogs at West Potomac High School and failed to score one touchdown. The Wolverines had a hard time keeping possession of the ball while the Bulldogs practically lived in the endzone. By the end of the night, the final score was 49-0 in favor of Westfield. Demornay Pierson-El was a big contributor to Friday night's game as he has been an essential asset to the Wolverines throughout the season. The wide receiver was a predominant carrier in Friday's game along with quarterback Caleb Williams, who often moved out of the pocket to push the play down the field. Despite their efforts, the Wolverines didn’t make it to the endzone at all on Friday night with …

The Wolverines will take on the Bulldogs Oct. 12 at West Potomac High School.
The West Potomac Wolverines will go head-to-head with the Westfield Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. Friday at West Potomac High School at 6500 Quander Rd. in Alexandria. Wolverines Head Coach Jeremiah Davis said the Bulldogs are a well disciplined team that can pass and run effectively. "They do not make mistakes and their core group of players are solid," Davis said. "Our coaching staff like to refer to them as 'the machine' because they are so consitant at putting out a great product that it is hard to put together four solid quarters against them." However, Davis said every team can be beat, and the Wolverines hope they will be the team to do that this Friday. In preparation for Friday night's game, the Wolverines have had strong practices …

Demornay Pierson-El has been playing football since he was four -- now he's one of the most watched players in the game.
The first time Demornay Pierson-El played football, he was about four or five years old. Since then, the West Potomac High School junior has lived and breathed the sport, becoming the player to watch in Fairfax County this high school football season. Oddly, Pierson-El said he didn’t really know what football was, but watched it on television and always wanted to play. Eventually, his mother signed him up for a local youth league in his neighborhood and he has played the sport ever since. “I didn’t know what it was, but I know I wanted to play, so I went out there and played,” Pierson-El said. Halfway through this year's season, Pierson-El already has more than 13 touchdowns and more than 670 rushing yards. In one game alone, Pierson-El …

The West Potomac Wolverines are scheduled to go head-to-head with the Annandale Atoms Friday, Sept. 28. at 7:30 p.m. at Annandale High School, located at 4700 Medford Drive. West Potomac head coach Jeremiah Davis referred to Annandale as a "tough, scrappy team." Davis said Annandale has a great quarterback combination in Nolan Gilbert and Steve Schwartz. "This year, their offense has been more productive and able to capitalize on opponents' mistakes which makes them more of a challenge," Davis said in a recent email. "Defensively safety Jack Johnson has been a thorn in West Potomac’s side for four years and upfront Brian Jefferson will have to be accounted for." In preparation for this week's game, Davis said the Wolverines changed it up a…
