     Poquoson’s Ethan Bryce Eyes Next Level
Ethan Bryce’s high school football career came to an end last Saturday with a 56-16 loss to Petersburg in the 3A East quarterfinals.

It won’t be the last time the senior fullback straps on a helmet and shoulder pads, as the search begins for a place to play college ball.

Interest has been steady for Bryce, who ranked second in the Bay Rivers District this season with nearly 1,400 rushing yards. He was a first-team, Colonial Rivers Conference 25 selection at running back and earned second-team honors on defense after leading the team with 16 tackles for loss. Ethan also earned a recruit757/Buffalo Wild Wings Player of the Week award for his 230 yard, three touchdown performance in a 48-20 win over Warhill earlier in the season.

With his skill set and work ethic, he’d be a great fit for any of the schools that are considering him. Now he has to determine which schools are the best fit, including playing time, depth charts, offensive and defensive schemes, and most importantly, academics.

The Poquoson High product hopes to study science or engineering in school.

     Petersburg's speed too much for Poquoson in Islanders' 56-16 loss
Ethan Bryce is as direct answering a question as he has been hitting holes or opposing ball-carriers en route to nearly 1,400 yards rushing and 16 tackles for loss for Poquoson this season.

So, when Bryce was asked about the key factor in the Islanders' 56-16 loss to Petersburg in the second round of the 3A East Region playoffs Saturday at Poquoson Middle School, he didn't sugarcoat his answer.

"We were unready for their speed," he said. "We were so scared of their speed that we gave up the cut-back lanes and were (over running) because we thought we had to catch up."

"If you'd have told me in August we'd be playing today, I would've been a happy man," Poquoson coach Elliott Duty said. "We have a lot guys returning, so we'll be back."

Bryce added, "It hurts to lose, but we did a lot better than what people thought we were going to do. We were predicted be seventh in the (Bay Rivers) district, and we came out ninth in the state.

"I'm proud of everyone on this team. It was a great season and I'm glad to go out with a team like this and call them family."

     Seniors provide experience for young Poquoson's surprisingly successful football season
One of the raps on the Poquoson High football team during the preseason was that it was too small, with only three players weighing as much as 200 pounds and none more than 230. That wasn’t necessarily considered the kiss of death, because the Islanders won with little size often in the past.

A bigger concern was that few of the players, big or small, had significant varsity experience on a team that returned only three starters at four positions. So even the coaching staff and the few veterans returning were unsure how this season would go.

Picked to finished seventh in the district, the Islanders (9-2) finished second and gave unbeaten Bay Rivers champion Lafayette (11-0) its toughest game of the regular season.

Most of Poquoson’s starters are underclassmen who won big on the JV level. But the glue has been the small senior class of six, led by Cannella, two-way star Ethan Bryce and defensive ace Jacob Callaway.

“We’re fortunate to have two of those three (Cannella and Bryce) on offense and all three on defense,” Poquoson coach Elliott Duty said. “I don’t know where we’d be right now had we not found their leadership.”

     Poquoson takes action to outpace rising sea levels
A small town carved out of a salt marsh is living an uneasy future that may be ahead for low-lying parts of Hampton Roads: Up to 90 percent of Poquoson lies in the floodplain.

Much of the city is 4 to 7 feet above sea level. Waterfront roads traversing the ridge lines of ancient dunes sometimes flood at high tide. One household has lost half a dozen cars in 17 years to salt water, and their experience is not unusual.

"Everybody ought to have their eyes on Poquoson because it's at the leading edge of all the challenges we're going to face as we go forward," said Skip Stiles, director of Wetlands Watch, a Norfolk environmental group that works on sea level rise issues.

Some scientists wonder how long the city can hold on.

"They're one of the localities that's going to have to start looking at strategic retreat for some areas that are no longer habitable," said Carl Hershner, director of the Center for Coastal Resources Management at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. "They don't like to talk about it, and understandably so. The long-term future is sort of dire. Nobody likes to plan for their own demise."

Mayor Gene Hunt sees it differently:

"Poquoson will be here for another 200 years. It might not look exactly the same. My outlook still remains very positive."
