Dominion QB Jarman out for season with ACL injury

It was late in the third quarter on a scramble play when Dominion High School starting quarterback Thomas Jarman was sacked after making an awkward cut and fell to the ground with copious pressure around him. That play has changed the course of the Titans' season after Jarman was diagnosed with a torn ACL, bringing an end to his 2017 campaign.

Dominion's highly-anticipated match-up Oct. 13 in Purcellville against the Woodgrove Wolverines lived up to the hype. The game was competitive, exciting and full of star power. The Titans trailed by just two points entering the fourth quarter before Woodgrove scored 14 unanswered points to pull away for a 28-12 win.

Jarman has been one of Dominion's most valuable players this season, passing for more than 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns. Jarman led the Titans to a 4-2 record heading into the Woodrove game, setting school passing records for completions in a game, touchdowns in a game and yards in a game.

"It was the worst case scenario that we always feared and it came to fruition," Dominion head coach Karl Buckwalter said.

It is clear this news has had a dramatic impact on the entire team, especially for Jarman's fellow seniors that have watched him grow and develop as a quarterback throughout the last four years.

"I was extremely sad when I heard the news, it felt like an unreal event," Titan senior reciever Jadan Pierre said.

Joel Campos, a senior standout offensive and defensive lineman, also was injured during the Woodgrove game. Even during his time of discomfort, Campos was able to talk to his quarterback, "When I went down and was on the sideline I told him everything would be alright and that I love him."

“It was really sad when we all found out about his injury," senior lineman Jayde Pierre said. "But we are playing the rest of this season for him and [we’re going to] be there for him like always."

The Titans (4-3) are game-planning for their Week 9 matchup against the Loudoun County Raiders (5-2) with a new-look offense, in hopes of maintaining their playoff position with only three games left in the regular season.

"Right now, Trey Hayes is our starting quarterback, Aidan Dolan is our backup and we will go from there," Buckwalter said.

Buckwalter noted that Hayes is one of the best, if not the best athlete at Dominion right now, and he has shown it throughout this year with his big-play ability as a receiver. Hayes has speed, quickness and great vision as a runner, but he only attempted one pass in his short stint versus Woodgrove.
