JB football set to host Md. School for the Deaf

Who: James Buchanan Rockets vs. Maryland School for the Deaf Orioles

What: Non-league football game and Senior Night.

When: Friday, 7 p.m.

Where: Rocket Stadium

Records: James Buchanan is 3-5 after receiving a forfeit last Saturday when Cesar Chavez (DC) canceled … Md. School is 6-1 after beating Hancock (Md.) 55-6 last week.

Orioles notes: Md. School for the Deaf is located in Frederick, Md. It provides free public education to deaf and hard-of-hearing Maryland residents … The Orioles have been National Deaf Prep School champions 13 times since 2001 … RB Truth Dorsette is one of the top offensive threats. In a season-opening 46-8 win over St. John’s Catholic Prep, Dorsette rushed for 149 yards and scored 4 TDs.

Comments: “They have some kids that can play,” JB coach David Miller said. “The quarterback is a real athletic player and Dorsette runs hard. They definitely are a team that has talent, but we have some good player too and if we come out ready to play we should be alright. I think we have played better competition which should help us. Not playing last week gave us some time to get healthy. I think we’ll have some extra energy also because it’s Senior Night and those guys want to play well.”
