Three-Sport Star Has Unusual Schedule

Right now, my concentration is doing well on football this fall and then I have basketball and indoor track at the same time. "I guess I am getting ready for (football and basketball) now, but not really track. My track season is done for the summer. I am doing basketball camps, but my focus is on football first."

My decision will probably come in December or January after the season." Darrius earned All-American honors by placing 6th at the Nike High School Track and Field Championships in Landover, MD. The top 6 in each event earn All-American honors. Darrius was the only junior in the field of sprinters during the 55-meter championship. McDonogh is an independent school so they are not eligible to compete in the state track meet, they did however capture their league championship. His best times this spring were 10.4 in the 100 meters and 21.3 in the 200 meters.
