Cousins impresses, recruits win title

Kirk Cousins impressed in his first career start, helping the Washington Redskins remain in the hunt for a NFC East title.

Filling in for the injured Robert Griffin III, the former Michigan State quarterback rebounded from a slow start to help Washington to a 38-21 road win over the Cleveland Browns.

Cousins threw for 329 yards and two touchdowns as he helped the Redskins win their fifth straight game.

Former Spartan Jerel Worthy had three tackles and 1/2 a sack for the Green Bay Packers against the Bears on Sunday. Cincinnati defensive tackle Domata Peko had a fumble recovery in a win over the Eagles on Thursday.

MSU football recruits Damion Terry and Delton Williams became the latest to win state titles this season, joining Cincinnati Moeller linebacker Shane Jones, Brother Rice linebacker Jon Reschke, Detroit Cass Tech’s Deon Drake and Dennis Finley and Grand Rapids Christian receiver Drake Harris.

Terry and Williams helped Erie Cathedral Prep earn a 28-14 win over Archbishop Wood in the Pennsylvania state finals. He was 13-24 passing for 317 yards and two touchdowns and 12 carries for 55 yards. Williams had eight carries for 34 yards and three catches for 53 yards.

Terry finished the season 222-333 passing for 3,599 yards with 50 TDs and 15 INTs and 700 rushing yards and 12 TDs. Williams ends his senior season with 59 receptions for 838 yards and 88 carries for 697 yards.

On the hardwood, two-sport recruit Drake Harris helped Grand Rapids Christian split a pair of basketball games over the past week. He scored just 3 points in a win over Rockford on Tuesday and then scored 19 in an overtime loss to Warren De La Salle. Grand Rapids Christian is 1-3 this season.

    Great game by Cousins, he will be starting somewhere next year if he keeps this up.

    I’m sure other recruiting classes at other schools have State champions in them, but 7 seems like a large number to me. Naive?

    • avatar Spartan 81 says:

      I think 7 is pretty high, maybe 89 chem could research how we compare to other schools in the BIG

        I’ll have to pass on this one. That would involve checking everyone’s CV along with titles from all classes of all represented states. It makes no distinction between support players on great teams and diamonds from lesser teams. And differences between State X’s Class 6A and State Y’s Division Ω are ignored.

    So proud of Kirk. That’s our Spartan!

    AP poll makes way more sense than the “Coaches” poll.

  8. avatar AtlSpartan says:

    I am surprised Cousins was able to bounce back so well after that early deflection interception. The high lights looked great. Did anyone else notice all of his throws on the highlights and both of his touchdown throws were with him on the move??

  9. avatar MayoSpartan says:

    The Washington Times article on Cousins’ reads like Joe Biden wrote it after reading an archived Rexrode piece.

    D-Rob gets a slap on the wrist:


    At least he took care of it, so he can make the bowl trip!!

    • avatar MSU Owns Denard says:

      Saw that too, they had a bench warrant out on him, like they didn’t know where he was at? typical ann arbor b.s., don’t you think this is a violation of team rules so he should miss the bowl game? oh wait, never mind, it’s michigan….

      • avatar marky mark says:

        Come on now! Nix smoking dope while driving , gets 2 day suspension during offseason, never misses a practice, and becomes team captain. Guess that’s not a team violation either.

        • avatar MSU Owns Denard says:

          I never said I agreed with the Nix decision, but he never had a bench warrant put out on him either for not showing up to court….

          no way Denard should be allowed to play in the bowl game, if it was anybody else Hoke would have already suspended them

    • avatar '89 Chemistry says:

      This is a head-scratcher. Not least of all because it involves Mr. Michigan himself in Spartan country during prime drinking hours. (As a Florida native, he probably wasn’t visiting his cousin. Surely he had better entertainment options elsewhere.)

      I don’t believe Denard is a stupid man. Why, then, would he necessitate a court date to fight his ticket, then fail to appear? (I’ve seen a judge sentence a guy with no record to 14 days for that.) And why would he then simply plead guilty rather than at least argue his case?

      By all accounts he’s a good guy, and I don’t think this changes that. But it’s an unnecessary shame, imo.

      report also said drob parked in a handicap spot but was never given a ticket because he had his Michigan diploma hanging on the rear view mirror…

    Wow, you could have used words like unbelievable and catastrophic, that is just an awful football team, when they let Tebow in the first 2 plays were run options and they worked well (20+ yards), after that they reverted to form of trying to be what they are NOT, a football team with a PRO QB and PRO WR’s. They are just terrible.

  14. avatar USMCSpartan(Ret.) says:

    Heard the Cheese-it is not going to bother to travel to BG to cover the game. Other pressing items on the Michigan State beat columnists plate.

  15. avatar Spartydoobydoo says:

    Not one post about the game last night…..I miss the good ol’ days!!

    Another head scratcher….wish they could play that great defense of theirs for a whole game, instead of just the last 8 or 9 minutes of the game.

    I’m enjoying watching Harris grow as a college baller….I have a feeling he’s gonna drag us to some victories later this year and come tourney time (not that he’s not already doing that)!!

    Dawson MUST work on his ball handling skills….he’s a great slasher and does a great job if he only needs a couple dribbles, but I cringe every time his back is to the basket or he tries to dribble across the lane!!

    The Tanner see Tommy beat Bobby Orr baby !!!

    Gary throw down come back out baby !!!

    The Tanner brings the goods baby !!!

    Curious news on the LSJ: Cheese-it is no longer the beat writer, Joe is back in that capacity. I guess the powers at be finally listened to the ranings of an old man about what a little person Cracker truly is, I suppose if you continue to read his drivel, you will be well informed on the world of college sports from a MAC perspective. I’ll give you a little taste: BG will win the MAC.
