The Foxes’ (1-0, 3-1) latest 43-28 win over Battlefield District rival Courtland (0-1, 0-4) on Friday night at their home field, “The Pit,” is a solid indication that they are unquestionably for real. The victory propels the Foxes into a second place tie with James Monroe (1-0, 3-1), and a showdown with division leading Eastern View (2-0, 3-1).
The Foxes travel to play the Cyclones on Friday, Oct. 9 — game time is 7:30 p.m. The Cyclones are known for their offensive attack; most recently they defeated Chancellor (0-1, 2-2) 39-27.

The line to get into “The Pit” to witness the last time the Washington & Lee Eagles would play the King George Foxes in the notorious stadium was longer than a football field and five wide. This game is a game everyone marks down on the calendar once the schedule comes out, mainly because it’s the first game, but more importantly it is King George vs. Washington & Lee.
The game, which seemed competitive for the first quarter, quickly changed into a game of miscues for Washington & Lee and a game of opportunities to take advantage of for King George. Midway through the second quarter, return man Bryan Burrell couldn’t control the punt and fumbled it where a pack of Foxes were waiting. After a scramble that seemed to

Mark Perry, King George High School junior varsity soccer head coach, and social studies teacher, has a new perspective on coaching and taking the Foxes to the next level. From July 5-10, Perry and 17 soccer players from King George attended the Elite Sports Academy Camp, at Sweet Briar College, in Amherst, Va. The camp consisted of two-U 14 teams and two-U 12 teams.
King George had the largest contingent of players at the camp, with other high schools featuring two to three players. Campers endured steamy temperatures that soared up into the nineties, while taking advantage of a rare opportunity to learn from one of the most highly acclaimed soccer coaches in the country, in the form of Virginia Tech men’s soccer head coach, Oliver Weiss. Weiss has coached the Hokies since 2002, compiling a record of 68-39-16.
