COY Timothy Palmer Harford Technical High School

Timothy Palmer, varsity head football coach of the Harford Technical (Bel Air, Md.) Cobras, has been named the 2017 Ravens High School Coach of the Year. Palmer is the 21st recipient of the annual award.

Finishing with a 12-1 record this year, Palmer led the Cobras to the most single-season victories in program history and the school’s first-ever trip to the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) Class 2A state semifinals. Harford Tech doubled its previous win total for one season (six, most recently accomplished in 2008), and the first-year head coach helped guide the school to its only undefeated regular season.

During the playoffs, the Cobras advanced to the “Final Four” behind a 22-21 victory over the Kent Island Buccaneers in the MPSSAA Class 2A East regional final. After trailing 21-9 entering the game’s final frame, Harford Tech rallied with two long touchdown passes from sophomore QB Ryan Hunt to senior WR Jordan Bright, giving the Cobras a lead they would not relinquish. A fumble recovery by sophomore LB Jonathan Fletcher on Kent Island’s final possession secured the regional title for Harford Tech.

The Cobras advanced to the semifinal matchup against the Gwynn Park Yellow Jackets, but their perfect season came to an end with a narrow defeat (16-9) to the Prince George’s County school.

The Ravens High School Coach of the Year Award has been a fixture in youth athletics since 1997. Previous recipients include: Augie Waibel of Poly (1997), Nick Arminio of Eastern Technical (1998), Pete Pompey of Edmondson-Westside (1999), Dominic Damico of McDonogh (2000), Steve Turnbaugh of Hereford (2001), Dave Eubank of Dundalk (2002), Gene Brown of South Carroll (2003), Ben Eaton of Dunbar (2004), Brad Wilson of Westminster (2005), Dante Jones of Edmondson-Westside (2006), Lawrence Smith of Dunbar (2007), Tony Shermeyer of Century (2008), Rick Conner of Linganore (2009), Damon Bomar of Forest Park (2010), Roger Wrenn of Poly (2011), Reggie White of Milford Mill (2012), Elwood Townsend of Douglass (2013), Thomas Browne of Oakland Mills (2014), Sean Sandora of Dundalk (2015) and Joe Polce of Walkersville (2016).
