The Gilman Brotherhood

From parent Anne Stuzin: Back when Titans WR Darius Jennings ‘11 was a star on the Gilman football team, my son Jack, his friend Jack Tortolani, and many of their fellow 2020s loved watching him play, flocking to his side after games. Darius always made time for them—he was friendly and engaging and the Lower School boys looked up to him. Jack S. follows Darius on social media, and during the varsity lacrosse team’s spring break trip, saw that he was in Charlottesville for a visit. Jack invited him to the lacrosse game against St. Anne's Belfield. Darius came to watch the Hounds win 9-7 and stayed afterwards to see the guys and catch up with his former teachers Brooks Matthews and Owen Daly. It was a great moment for the Gilman brotherhood!
