7.) Franklin (4-1) - Coach Anthony Burgos has built the Indians program into a jauggernaut, making the playoffs 11 straight times (tied, 5th longest current streak), won 39 of 40 v BalCo competion, won 3 regional championships, and won a pair of state championships.

This season, the Indians have out-scored their three MPSSAA opponents - Woodlawn, Kenwood, @ Dundalk, 134-2. The Indians suffered an opening week loss to DeMatha, 39-0. The tribe also has a 38-28 win over Smyrna DE.

The Indians go to Milford Mill 10/14, and host Perry Hall 10/20.

The Indians defense hasn't given up a point v the three BalCo teams they've played. 

The Indians quarterbacks, Larry Smith and Calvert Hall transfer Everett Avery, have combined for 57-95 for 793 yards, with 11 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. 15 different Indians have a reception. Sam Botchway headlines the running attack.

Jayden Watson has 9 tackles for loss and 9 sacks. Junior Robert Garrett, junior linebacker Jay Thompson, and MSJ transfer linebacker Frankie Stevend bolster the D.

 

8.) Fort Hill (5-0) - The Sentinals are on the verge to doing something that has never been done before - win 5 straight state championships. Urbana ('98-01) is the only other team to win 4 straight. The Sentinels set a school record last week, winning their 30th consecitive game.

The Sentinels rank 2nd all-time in MPSSAA history in playoff wins, with 48. Fort Hill has won 23 regional championships, most in MPSSAA history. The Sentinels have clinched a playoff berth in 14 straight seasons.

Coach Todd Appel, in his 10th season, has the highest winning percentage in MPSSAA history, at .900 (108-12). The Sentinels last loss to a MPSSAA team was in November of 2012, to Brunswick.

The Sentinels have out-scored their opponents 249-30 in 4 games, and are averaging 62.3 points per game, #1 in the state.

Troy Banks has scored 11 TDs in 4 games, and is averaging 10.6 yards per carry. Brayden Poling adds to the firepower. Kicker Danny Cox has hit 33 of 34 XPs, and banged a 45 yard field goal.

Fort Hill finishes the regular season, and likely the regional, with its foil, the Campers of Allegany. The Sentinels have won 10 straight over the Campers, with its last loss to its arch rival occuring back in November of '09.

 

9.) Flowers (5-0) - The Jaguars haven't won or shared the league title since '06, when they shared the county title with state champion Suitland.

For that to happen again this season, the Jags need not beat Wise, who they do not play. They can share, if they both win out. However, to go through the 4A East, they'll in all liklihood have to beat the Pumas.

In 2013, the Jags started out 7-0, before losing their final four, including the opening round of the playoffs. 

The Jags are the only MPSSAA team to have two top 20 wins, beating #13 Eleanor Roosevelt, 25-19, and #16 Gwynn Park, 14-7.

The Jags held Eleanor Roosevelt's leading rusher Elisha McDonald to 100 yards less than what he's averaged v his other 4 opponents this season. The Jaguars held Gwynn Park to 90 yards of total offense.

The Jaguars host top 25 Suitland on 10/21, and go to top 20 Douglass the following week, 10/28. No Wise for Flowers this year.

6'3 255 Jamrie Kromah (Old Dominion commit) anchors the Jags stingy D. QB Julius Duvall threw for 168 yards and 3 TDs v Eleanor Roosevelt.

 

10.) Broadneck (5-0) Coach Rob Harris' Bruins are averaging 46 points per game, and have outscored opponents, 230-57.

The Bruins most impressive win thus far is a 45-9 victory over Arundel.

The Bruins have finished in the top 25 in the Maryland High School Writers poll 11 times.

The Bruins face Old Mill this week on the road. Since their opening week drubbing by Gwynn Park, the Patriots have won 4 straight.

QB Shawn Harris has had a great year, throwing for 22-26 for 352 yards and 5 TDs v Severna Park, 17-28 for 254 and 3 v Arundel, and 313 yards and 4 TDs v Northeast.

Jason Carcamo, who rushed for 1200+ yards in '16, ran for 217 yards and 2 TDs v Arundel. WR Ethon Williams, who had 50 catches and 10 TDs in '16, and has an offer from West Virginia, among others, had 8 catches for 154 yards and 2 TDs v Arundel.

6'3 240 Noah Genovese is recieving Ivy interest. 6'6 315 OL Carlos Shepard paves the way. WR Seth Campbell, a transfer from Old Mill, gives Harris another weapon on the outside. The defense has 7 3-year players.

11.) Northwest (4-1) - The Jaguars were out-classed by Good Counsel this weekend, 58-21, but look to their 6th straight playoff appearance, despite the loss to the private super power.

After back-to-back state championships in '13 and '14, the Jaguars lost to Wise, 37-15, in the state semifinal, the Pumas 2nd closest win that season. Last year, Northwest was bumped from the post-season in round 1, losing to the Rockets of Richard Montgomery, 28-13, after beating them, 46-13, several weeks earlier.

The Jaguars have a 31-6 win over Seneca Valley. The annual showdown with Quince Orchard will take place at the Cougar Dome, with a likely second meeting's site to be determined.

Northwest has won the last 3 regional finals v Quince Orchard, in 3 straight years, from '13-15.

12.) Linganore (4-1) - The Lancers are coming off of a big loss to #3 Walkersville, 40-10, but hold a 50-28 win over Westminster, and pounced Curley, Edgewood, and Thomas Johnson, 141-6.

The Lancers still face some tough tests ahead, before November. The Lancers travel to #17 Oakdale this weekend, go to #30 Middletown on 10/21, and host Tuscarora on 10/27.

The 5-time state champion Lancers were eliminated by Damascus, 21-7, last year. The Lancers 15 top 25 appearances in the Maryland High School Football Wriers final poll ranks third in the MPSSAA, behind only Damascus (21) and Seneca Valley (20).

Davon Butler, a sophomore, takes over from his brother Dante, who was voted Frederick County Player of the Year last season. Davon gained 527 yards and scored 7 touchdowns as a freshman.

Sophomore quarterback Ryan Leyh replaced Nate Musselman at quarterback. Only 2 defensive starters returned from last year. 

 

13.) Eleanor Roosevelt (4-1) - The Raiders lost to #9 Flowers, 25-19. Otherwise, the Raiders have steamrolled their competition, outscoring Bladensburg, Pallotti, Central, and Suŕattsville, 152-21, 92-0 in the first half.

The Raiders travel to #1 Wise on 10/20, host #21 Oxon Hill on 10/27, and Potomac on 11/3.

The Raiders have made the playoffs in 8 of the last 9 years, 12 of the last 14, but haven't won a regional title since '03.

6'4 senior QB Jaden Faulkner is the catalyst, and rushed for 203 yards and 3 TDs v Pallotti. Elisha McDonald has 53 carries for 613 yards (10.6 ypc) and 7 touchdowns. 6'1 200 safety Raymond Boone is a Maryland commit.

 

14.) Sherwood (5-0) - The Warriors lost Mayland Gatorade Player of the Year Travis Levy (Boston College), but have held strong, thumping Magruder (43-0), @ Einstein (21-0), and Wheaton (43-0), and hold a solid win over Richard Montgomery, 42-18, with a loss to #2 Damascus, 42-7.

Outside of the Damascus game, the Warriors have allowed just 18 points in 4 games, with 3 shutouts.

The Warriors go to Blair this weekend, and host top 25 Paint Branch 10/20.

The Warriors rank 8th all-time in MPSSAA history with 29 playoff wins, though they haven't won a regional since '09.

 

15.) North Caroline (5-0) - The Bulldogs are dominating foes, outscoring their opponents, 238-25, 190-6 in the first half. For those of you scoring at home, average halftime score - 38 to 1.2.

The Dawgs face currently undefeated Kent Island at home, on 10/27.

The Bulldogs have won only one regional title ever, in '15, when they lost to Walkersville, 17-15, in the state semifinal, watching a Lions game-winning FG go through the uprights with 6 seconds to go.

Week 6

1.) Wise (6-0) - The Pumas continue to prowl through PG, blasting Bowie, 75-0. Quinton Williams threw 9 completions (9-11-216), 5 for touchdowns. Williams has 15 TDs, 1 INT on the season.

The Pumas had 7 different players score 10 TDs. The Pumas D, who hasn't allowed a point in 5 of their 6 games, recorded 7 sacks, 13 tackles for loss, including a safety. AJ Lytton (Florida St) returned a kickoff for a score.

 

2.) Damascus (6-0) - The Swarmin' Hornets stung Clarksburg, 42-0, for its 3rd shutout. Gage Dickens scored a pair of TDs, as did Ayo Barajaiye.

Damascus doesn't seem to face a test until a probable regional final matchup with #3 Walkersville. Only two-tenths of a point separate the projected finish for home field advantage, advantage Damascus, 12.2-12.0.

 

3.) Walkersville (6-0) - The Lions smoked Silver Oak, 61-6, hitting their average point differential of +55.3. Ty Littleton and Jacob Wetzel each scored a pair of TDs, and Tyler Gleason ran 5 times for 106 yards, scoring on 3 of the 5 runs.

The Lions, who have outscored their opponents, 354-22, face their biggest test of the regular season on 10/27, when they face the #13 Oakdale Bears, who just recorded an impressive 28-9 victory over then #12 Linganore.

 

4.) Quince Orchard (5-1) - The Cougars pounded then top 25 Paint Branch, 45-8. Doc Bonner threw 5 completions on 7 attempts for 110 yards and 2 scores, and ran 8 times for 75 yards and a score. Sophomore Marquez Cooper had 13 carries for 103 yards and 2 scores.

 

5.) North Point (6-0) - The Eagles knocked off Huntingtown, 19-7, in their closest win of the season. The Eagles have allowed only 7.3 points per game this season, 14th best in the MPSSAA. Despite a potential undefeated regular season, there is a very good chance that the Eagles finish as a 2 seed, should Broadneck win out.

6.) Howard (6-0) - The Lions won their 39th of 40 v HoCo competition, shutting down their arch rivals on the road, for their Homecoming, to boot. Devin Dawkins ran for 107 yards and a score, and their special teams recovered a bad snap in the end zone, and also blicked a punt.

The Lions will likely need a Paint Branch upset over Sherwood to snag a,1 seed.

 

7.) Franklin (5-1) - The Indians blew out the Catonsville Comets, 52-7, and have outscored their 4 MPSSAA opponents, 154-9, giving up 1TD in 4 games. Larry Smith threw 5 for 6 for 135 yards and 3 TDs.

The Indians go to Milford Mill this week, a year removed from a 24-20 Indians victory over the Millers in the regular season, and a 28-7 victory in the playoffs.

 

8.) Fort Hill (6-0) - The Sentinels are just taking names at this point, and now, from 3 different states, as they ran through Serra Catholic PA, 56-6. The Sentinels ran for 309 yards, as Breyden Poling had 2 TDs, Troy Banks had 1, and Ryan Hipp hit all 8 XPs.

This week, the Sentinels will attempt to make it a quartet of states conquered, as they play host to Melbourne Central Catholic FL. The Hustlers finished as a 3A semifinalist in Florida in '16.

 

9.) Flowers (6-0) - The Jaguars shut out Largo, 27-0, and have moved up to the #11 ranking in the Washington Post. The Jags D has given up just 5 TDs in 6 games.

The Jags still have #20 Suitland, and go to Douglass, but should they win out and go undefeated in the regular season for the second time in school history ('06), they will likely be the 2 seed, with a showdown with likely PG4A co-champion and two-time defending state champion Wise in the regional final.

 

10.) Broadneck (6-0) - The Bruins did a bit of everything offensively against Old Mill, on the ground and through the air, putting the Patriots 32 game county win steak to an end, with an exclamation point.with a 55-28 win.

Shane Davis threw for 2 TDs and ran for 1, and Jason Carcamo ran for 2, all in the first half, as the Bruins put up 34 before intermission. Davis' final tallies included throwing for 277 yards and 2 TDs, and running for 3 TDs, while Carcamo finished with 127 yards on 15 carries.

Like so many times in the past, the regular season duel with Quince Orchard on 10/27 at the Cougar Dome will likely decide the #1 seed in their region, therefore claiming home field advantage.

 

13.) Oakdale (6-0) - The Bears shut down Linganore, 28-9, handing the Lancers their 2nd loss in as many weeks, following their drubbing from Walkersville. Collin Schlee threw 12-18 for 180 yards and 2 TDs, rushing for a score.

The Bears host an intriguing cross-state matchup with the undefeated Buccaneers of Kent Island this weekend.

 

14.) Sherwood (5-1) - The Warriors are coming off a 28-7 win over Blair, as quarterback Michael Mbony threw two projectiles for scores, and rushed for 96 yards on 22 carries. The Warriors had a pair of pick 6's on the Blazers, including one by Chris Webb, who also had a touchdown reception.

The Warriors have a trio of convincing victories over top 40ish to 50ish teams, in Richard Montgomery, Einstein, and Blair, and still face Paint Branch.

 

15.) North Caroline (6-0) - Last year, the Bulldogs came out victorious over Easton in a down home Bayside shootout, 49-48. This year, the Dawgs took the drama out of the matchup early, as David Bailey (Boston College) ran for 3 TDs, leading the way to a 42-3 win over the Warriors.

North Caroline has outscored its opponents, 280-28, with its defense allowing just 3 TDs.

The DayWalker just loves the Quince Orchard / Northwest game atmosphere at either venue.

30.) Middletown (4-1) - The Knights lost to #17 Oakdale, 24-17, and wins over Poly and Tuscarora.

The Knights go to #12 Linganore on the 20th, and host #3 Walkersville on November 3rd.

Coach Kevin Lynott is 90-29 in his 10th season at Middletown, having won 5 regional championships and 3 state championships, with a 20-6 playoff record.

The Knights lost to Walkersville, 21-7, in last years regional final.

I'm 95% positive Coach Lynott stepped down from Middletown.  I recall a youngster right out of college who played for Middletown in perhaps a title game in 2012 or so took over.

Indeed. Top 5 in the state, with City/Poly, and Fort Hill/Allegany slightly ahead. I think its why I always refer to their history and the upcoming calender.

Thanks. When I was writing of Middletown I hadn't verified him coaching or remember knowing that he had stepped down. Just had his 86-28 record there and plugged in the numbers. I appreciate the correction.
