Damion Terry

Erie Cathedral Prep’s 24-14 victory over Archbishop Wood for the Class AAA state title was the perfect cap to a banner career from Ramblers’ quarterback Damion Terry. The senior signal caller was 13-for-24 passing with 317 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for a team high 55 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Terry’s two touchdowns were of the deep variety, as he hit Troy Woodward from 59 yards out in the first quarter and hooked up with Felix Manus-Schell for a 60 yard scoring strike in the second quarter.

A general topic of discussion among media members Friday night was the widely shared opinion that of the eight teams in Hershey this weekend, Terry is far and away the best quarterback. His size and strength (6’4”, 210) made him able to escape pocket pressure and elude tacklers.

Nowhere in the game was this more apparent than a sequence that occurred at the end of the first quarter and beginning of the second. First, out of a shotgun, empty backfield formation, Terry eluded an Archbishop Wood pass rush, stepped up in the pocket and hit a receiver in stride to move the changes. A few plays later, he ran the read option to perfection, kept the ball and picked up the first down on the ground.

The prolific passer ends his scholastic career with 7,266 yards and 86 touchdowns. Those are both District 10 records and the touchdown mark is the good enough for 10th all time in the state. Terry’s senior season was equally as impressive as he completed 222 of his 333 attempts for 3,599 yards and 50 touchdowns versus only 6 interceptions. That yardage and touchdown mark is not only good enough for school records, but also District 10 records. The 50 touchdowns are second all-time in the state for a single season. The 2012 season far eclipsed Terry’s previous single season records of 1,921 yards and 21 touchdowns that he achieved in his sophomore season with ECP.

Terry, along with Rambler teammate Delton Williams, will continue his football career at Michigan State. If tonight’s performance is any indicator, Lansing is getting two excellent football players.
