Bryon Sofinowski Named Ravens High School Coach of the Week

Bryon Sofinowski Named Ravens High School Coach of the Week

 

Bryon Sofinowski, head coach of the Kent Island (Stevensville, Md.) varsity football team, has been named Ravens High School Coach of the Week. Presented by Toyota, this is the 16th year of the Ravens’ award program.

In his 13th year as head coach at Kent Island, Sofinowski led the Buccaneers into the Maryland 2A regional semifinals against Wicomico last Friday (11/9). Kent Island entered the game with a 10-0 record – the school’s first-ever undefeated regular season – fresh off a previous week’s win over Queen Anne’s, the Buccaneers’ first victory against their county rival since 2003.

Behind the late-game heroics of WR D.J. Callaghan and QB D.J. Plumer, Kent Island advanced to the state’s regional finals with a 28-24 victory.

Trailing 24-14 nearing the end of the third quarter, Callaghan broke through the Wicomico line to block a punt, swinging momentum to the Buccaneers and setting up a rushing touchdown by Plumer. With just over three minutes to play in the fourth quarter, Plumer recorded his second ground score of the contest to give Kent Island a lead it would not relinquish.

“We really preach to our kids that they have to play like a team, like a brotherhood,” Sofinowski said. “Although we’ve been down the last two games in a row, our kids stepped up and played well together as a team. They did an excellent job not giving up and playing for each other, and that’s the epitome of team in my mind.”

The Buccaneers take on Elkton this Friday (11/16), as they look to advance to the state semifinals for a second-consecutive year.

Each week during the season, the Ravens will honor a high school coach who has made a significant impact on his student-athletes. Each winner will be present at the Ravens-Broncos home game on Dec. 16 for the naming of the Ravens High School Coach of the Year.

 

Each weekly recipient receives:

  • A $2,000 donation to the school’s football program
  • An award certificate signed by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh
A specially-designed Coach of the Week hat
