     Man sentenced to 128 years gets new trial in home invasion case
A new jury trial is scheduled for a Poquoson man whose 128-year prison sentence was reversed by the Virginia Supreme Court.

Robert Via, 22, is charged in the September 2010 armed home invasion on Arlington Terrace Road in Hampton. Via's jury trial is set for Dec. 9-10 in Hampton Circuit Court. During the home invasion five people were robbed and detained against their will, with one victim robbed at gunpoint of his PlayStation 3 and $280.

This is Via's second chance for a jury to hear his case, which is extremely rare for a defendant. In 2012 a jury convicted Via on all counts and sentenced him to the minimum mandatory sentence — 128 years and a day in prison. But in June the Supreme Court vacated Via's armed robbery conviction and lengthy sentence, ruling that jurors should have been warned about a witness' testimony during his trial.

     Bay Rivers District recap: Young Poquoson's hot start leads Friday football sweep
Poquoson High, with new starters at 18 positions, passed its first test Friday with a 33-13 win at Southampton that included big moments from the offense, defense and special teams.

"I was happy with our start," said Islanders coach Elliott Duty, whose team faces district heavyweight Tabb next. "Cole Jackson managed the game well and he'll only get better.

"The backs ran hard, the offensive line did a good job, and the defense wasn't bad with so many new starters. I know Tabb is going to be one of our better opponents, but I'm excited for the challenge and I think our kids will be up for it."

     Kyle Crockett talks about life in the bullpen, facing David Ortiz
Q. What's it been like to get to the big leagues so quickly and to stay as long as you have?

A. "It's incredible. Before this year I would have never expected to be called up this soon. I love it. It's a great experience.

"Getting called up was a big moment. I'm not a big emotional guy, but there were a lot of emotions flying around. I remember getting in my first game and how nervous I was and how I've been able to control my emotions better since I've pitched in more games."

     Poquoson is young but confident heading into season opener at Southampton
Elliott Duty says the last time he fielded a football team as young as Poquoson High's is this year, it was the 2008 season. The mainstays then were a group of sophomores led by Tee McConnell, William Haskins, Dustin Edwards and Luke Hill.

So little was expected of the Islanders then that they were picked to finish sixth in the Bay Rivers District. Instead, they won the program's first Bay Rivers title, presaging a regional final berth in 2009 and their 2010 Group AA Division 3 state title run.

No one is predicting that kind of success, now or in the future, for the underclassman-laden Islanders picked to finish seventh in the district. But a summer of practice and two solid scrimmage performances has Duty indicating the Islanders could be better than that forecast, perhaps much better.

"I think we're going to be real competitive," said Duty, who has coached the Islanders to a district-best seven consecutive regional playoff appearances. "We're a little bit quicker across the board than last year and run to the football better, and I'm pleased with their effort and willingness to stick their noses in there and hit on defense.

"We have six players who can run the ball. We're going to have our chances to win some football games; it's a matter of how they fight and react in the fourth quarter.

"They're going to have to learn to win in the fourth quarter."

The Islanders get their first opportunity Friday, when they open the season at Southampton. Fact is, most of Poquoson's players have plenty of experience winning on the youth level or for the district champion junior-varsity team.

     Preview: Poquoson Is A Perennial Contender
Elliot Duty has established a winning tradition at Poquoson High School built on a strong ground game, stingy defense and overall team toughness.

The 2014 Islanders return just six combined starters from last year’s playoff team, the expectation remains the same.

During his tenure, Duty’s teams have averaged roughly seven wins a season and have made the playoffs in 7 of his 8 seasons.

This year’s task may be a little tougher...

The Islanders will open the season Friday on the road against Southampton. Game time is 7 p.m.
