With two weeks down (three if you count private schools), here is your one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about Week 3. Our Game of the Week is the annual Jesuit Gridiron Classic between metropolitan powers No. 7 Gonzaga (D.C.) and No. 13 Georgetown Prep. That game kicks off at 2 p.m. Saturday.

For the time being, we’ll have reporters at the following games on Friday night: I will be at No. 2 DeMatha and No. 6 McDonogh at Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex. Kyle Parsons skirts over to Linganore to cover the No. 16 Lancers and Westminster, which has received votes in the state poll for the past two weeks. Our videographer Evan Engelhard and reporter Andy Coreas will be in Germantown for the battle of The King’s Trophy — No. 10 Northwest and Seneca Valley. While the Eagles aren’t ranked in our Top 25, they’re No. 22 in the state media poll.
