Viking athletes signed letters of intent for scholarships in football, baseball, soccer, gymnastics and diving.
Parkway North students gathered in the high school gym Wednesday morning to celebrate the work of seven classmates who made their college choices official on the first day athletes in several sports could sign their national letters of intent. They honored: Newsom gave Missouri a verbal pledge over the summer. He said there was interest from Nebraska, Indiana, and Arkansas, but ultimately an overriding factor was the ability to stay close to home. He told Patch there was no last-minute push by another school to sway his decision, as is sometimes the case. Suber surged in his senior season when given the opportunity to carry the load at running back for the Vikings when Newsom, the team's starting running back, missed time with injury. …

A pair of first-half goals are enough to send the Pirates to a victory.
For a while Monday, it looked like it was going to be all Pattonville in the Pirates' nonconference matchup against Parkway North. Sixty minutes into the match, there was no reason to believe anything else. But someone lit the light bulbs for the Vikings, and they were able to make a match of it. Spotting the Pirates a pair of first-half goals, Parkway North struck late with a furious spurt. But Pattonville was able to hang on for a 2-1 victory Monday afternoon at Pattonville High School. Akeem Lewis and Rob O'Keefe goals were enough for Pattonville (2-1) to hold off a Parkway North squad (1-4) that got a late goal from Marcos Rivas-Middleton and continued to push forward looking for an equalizer. But the Pirates defended well enough to …

Jovonte Suber manages a three touchdown day as the Vikings' new lead running back.
UNIVERSITY CITY–After two weeks of intermittent great plays one moment and poor throws and decisions the next, University City quarterback DeAndre Williams decided it was time to put it all together and show off the total package. And boy, what a show he put on Friday at Muhl-Schemmer Stadium, when he threw three touchdown passes, ran for a fourth, and made all the key plays in the fourth quarter to lead U. City to a thrilling 25-20 win over Suburban South Conference rival Parkway North. “I’ve always thought that at critical times, you give the ball to your best player,” U. City head coach Carl Reed said. “If I’m going down, I’m going down with the ball in DeAndre Williams’ hands.” And Reed made sure to go all in with Williams, with the …
Teams played in inaugural Great American Football Classic at Edward Jones Dome
ST. LOUIS -- Touted in the preseason as a big-time receiver, McCluer North senior Peter Jackson showed up in a big way on the big stage. Jackson fueled the Stars' offense, grabbing four catches for 125 yards and a highlight reel touchdown catch, senior quarterback Galen Brown scored twice and McCluer North remained unbeaten in Suburban North Conference play with a 25-7 victory over Pattonville Saturday in the Great American Football Classic at Edward Jones Dome. The Stars (2-1, 2-0) were able to unleash two of their star-studded players in Jackson and Brown after tailback Antwuan Williams carried the load in last week's win over McCluer. For Jackson, he caught a 49-yard touchdown in which he had to re-adjust after the pass was tipped in …

Parkway North Linebacker/Tailback Donavin Newsom has been unable to finish the team's first two games this season due to a knee injury suffered in week 1 vs. St. Louis University High. Head Coach Bob Bunton told highschoolsports.com's Nate Latsch over the weekend that it was an issue with the MCL--medial collateral ligament. Bunton tells Patch that a team doctor will examine Newsom Wednesday. Parkway North faces another road test against University City on Friday. Over the summer, Newsom, a senior, gave a verbal pledge to play linebacker for the University of Missouri.

Williams, Wills each score twice for Hazelwood Central; Pattonville shut out for second straight week
After a humbling defeat to open the season at the hands of a potent De Smet squad last week, Hazelwood Central got back to the woodshed this past week for some good old-fashioned smashmouth practices. The result was not good news for the Pattonville Pirates. "We got after it, and we're going to get after it again," said Hawks first-year coach Van Vanatta. "We haven't had to do that the past few years, but this year, we have to because we're so young." Behind the legs of junior running back Dorian Williams and senior quarterback Sean Wills to go with an opportunistic defense that forced four turnovers, the Hawks got back to the winning ways with a 43-0 rout of inexperienced Pattonville Saturday in the Hawks home opener at Central High …
Coach: "We got whooped"
What a difference one week makes. Our maybe it was a tough week of practice in scorching temperatures. Either way, Rockwood Summit showed a vast improvement from a blowout loss in Week 1 to earn a 38-20 home-opening victory Friday against visiting Parkway North in a Suburban South Conference game. “Certainly there were a few times the kids couldn’t wait to play again because it was a rough week of practice,” Summit coach Mike Bellers said. “And with the heat, our kids really battled through. I think we handled the heat better than they did; we were in it every day this weekend except (Thursday). Our kids paid the price, but they got the reward they deserved.” The heat, which pushed past 100 degrees for the third straight day Friday, pushed…
