Dante Jones Named Ravens High School Coach Of The Week

Posted Nov 21, 2012

Dante Jones Named Ravens High School Coach of the Week

 

Dante Jones, head coach of the Edmondson (Baltimore, Md.) varsity football team, has been named Ravens High School Coach of the Week. This marks the third Coach of the Week award for Jones who previously won in 2005 and 2006. Presented by Toyota, this is the 16th year of the Ravens’ award program.

 

Jones’ Red Storm prevailed over Dundalk, 12-6, in last Friday’s (11/16) Maryland 2A regional final. Despite entering the contest as the favorite, Edmondson was held scoreless until the third quarter and did not take a lead until early in the fourth.

 

At halftime, Jones directly challenged his seniors, stating: “Is this the last halftime you ever want to have? Let’s do something about it to make sure it’s not!”

 

Following Dundalk’s kickoff return for a touchdown to begin the second half, the Red Storm awoke with an 18-yard touchdown run by RB Eric Tate to tie the game at 6-6. With the outcome in the balance, DB Marcellus Pack intercepted a Dundalk pass and returned it 42 yards for the go-ahead touchdown, propelling Edmondson to its second consecutive state semifinal game.

 

The Red Storm take on Douglass (Prince George’s County) this Friday (11/23), as it looks to advance to the state final to be held at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday, Dec. 1.

 

“We know we have to come into practice and work harder this week,” Jones stated. “We’re going to review what we did wrong against a good Dundalk team and improve in those areas. We have to work on not coming out so flat and having a little more fire underneath of us.”

 

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
