It's going pretty well, he said. But there's always room for improvement. We've lost two games to two good teams and after those losses we've been working really hard to make sure we don't lose any more.
Damascus lost a tough game in late September to in-state rival Seneca Valley, 16-15. Phelps says that the team was able to rebound from that loss well, leading to three straight Hornet victories.
After that loss we came together after that film session, he said. And basically said that we have a chance to do something special this year and that we can't have another loss. Ever since that loss practice has been more intense,we're a lot more focused, and we've been playing with a lot more passion.
Recruiting is just starting for Phelps, who does not have any scholarship offers yet. He says that he is being targeted as a receiver at the next level, and is hearing from Rutgers, Maryland, Boston College, LSU, and Georgia. Phelps lists his number one school as Maryland.
Well first off it's close to home, he said. And the campus is nice. They also have a great football program.
After Maryland, Phelps rounds out his Top 5 with Boston College, Georgia, LSU, and Rutgers.
