W-L football camp, Toulouse named all-state, NOVA Senior Olympics

<b>W-L Football Camp</b>

The Washington-Lee football program is hosting the Generals Football Camp at the Washington-Lee High School stadium Saturday, June 20, from 8 to 11 a.m. for boys and girls ages 7 to 14. The cost is $35 and on-site registration begins at 7:45 a.m. on June 20. A pizza, Gatorade and ice cream lunch begins at 11 a.m.

The W-L coaching staff, led by head coach Josh Shapiro, and W-L players will run the camp. It is a non-contact camp with emphasis on proper techniques, fundamentals and having fun. All campers receive a T-shirt.

Former W-L football standout Joe Pricone will be a special guest.

<b>Toulouse Named All-State</b>

The honors keep piling up for Yorktown High School three-sport star, senior Kyle Toulouse. A few weeks after being named Arlington’s male high school athlete of the year by the Better Sports Club of Arlington and earning co-Northern Region Player of the Year recognition for his play on the baseball diamond for the Patriots, the second baseman/pitcher was named first team all-state by the Virginia High School Coaches Association.

Toulouse, who was also National District Pitcher of the Year, hit .431 this year from the leadoff spot, tying a school record 37 runs this season. He was also a perfect 27 for 27 on steal attempts. On the mound, Toulouse struck out 93 batters in just 63.1 innings pitched, going 8-0 with a 1.93 earned run average. Yorktown finished with a school record 19 wins before bowing out in the first round of the regional tournament.

It was a fitting end to a remarkable senior year for Toulouse, who will play football at Holy Cross this fall. He was named National District Player of the Year for football in the fall thanks to his multidimensional talents playing quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and in the secondary on defense. He was also a starter on the Patriot basketball team this winter.
