WEEK 2: Virginia vs. William & Mary
The Cavaliers are a talented program on the upswing, led by cornerback Bryce Hall, who returned for his senior season in order to earn his degree and hone his craft. It appears that it’ll pay off, as Hall flashed fancy footwork, a smooth backpedal and fluid hips. The Pennsylvania native seems destined to be a top 100 draft selection come April.
Entering the season NFL scouting services had mixed grades on @UVAFootball CB Bryce Hall. Well, I’m here to tell you that he looked like a top 100 prospect to me.

The “other” Bryce, as in quarterback Bryce Perkins, orchestrated the Virginia offense to the tune of 52 points, while showing off a strong arm and tremendous ball velocity. Perkins was spraying the ball all over the field, as eight different receivers caught passes. He accounted for two touchdowns through the air and another via the ground, despite sitting out most of the second half.
For William & Mary, lengthy safety Isaiah Laster hovered the secondary, playing a smooth centerfield, while collecting seven tackles and utilizing his long arms to disrupt a deep pass. Laster hails from a football family and has been playing the sport since he was six years old. He’s also an academic standout off the field, which is noticeable on the field, as he is quick to react to the play as it develops.
