The Chargers made a late fourth quarter comeback last week against the #3 Washington Post ranked Westfield Bulldogs 26-21. Chantilly's starting quarterback, Nate Worek, will not be playing this week because of a concussion he received during the Westfield game. The good news is that he will make a full recovery. The Chargers have capable back-up Austin Decker to lead the squad. After taking over in the first quarter against a stout Westfield defense, I have no worries that Austin will continue his fine play.
Chantilly's rise is a true comeback story. The team was 0-10 in the 2004 season and improved to 4-6 in 2005. Coach Mike Lalli, a former Notre Dame player, is truly getting the most out of his squad this year. Good luck Chantilly...and if you're in the NOVA area, come on out and watch!
