Ravens High School Coach of the Week

Each week during the high school football regular season, the Ravens honor a coach who has made a significant impact on his student-athletes. All 10 Coach of the Week winners receive a $2,000 donation to their school’s football program and an award from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, and each coach will be in attendance at the Ravens-Colts home game on Dec. 23 for an opportunity to be named the Ravens High School Coach of the Year.

Week 1 – Vince Ahearn (Tuscarora Titans)

On Saturday, September 2nd, Tuscarora (1-0) traveled east to play the Milford Mill (Baltimore, Md.) Millers in a non-conference matchup to begin the 2017 season. Behind 396 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns from junior RB Aris Hilliard, the Titans notched their first victory (38-14) of the year over the perennial Baltimore County powerhouse.

Tuscarora scored early after a 95-yard kickoff return touchdown from Hilliard to open the game. He followed with two rushing touchdowns in the first half, helping the Titans to a 24-0 halftime lead.

“When you have an individual performance like Aris had last weekend, it’s easy to overlook other individuals and position groups on the team,” Ahearn explained. “Our defensive performance against Milford Mill was extremely satisfying, as those guys have improved tremendously from 2016. Our offensive line did a great job working as a unit this early in the season to open holes for the running game, too. This was definitely a team win from all three phases of the game.”

Week 2 – Albert Jones (Meade Mustangs)

On Friday, September 8th, Meade (2-0) hosted the Arundel (Gambrills, Md.) Wildcats in a matchup of Anne Arundel County rivals, and for the first time since 2001, the Mustangs captured the Mears Cup (47-26) – a trophy given annually to the winner of this regular season game in honor of the late Coach Jerry Mears, who coached both Meade’s and Arundel’s football teams during the 1970s and 1980s.

Racing to a 26-0 halftime lead, the Mustangs forced six first-half turnovers and tallied multiple touchdowns through all three phases of the game; two on offense and one each on defense and special teams. With the margin cut to 13 points in the third quarter following two Arundel scores, Meade pulled away in the final frame behind a touchdown pass by senior QB Alijah Mateen and rushing touchdowns from senior RBs Darion Straughn and Erick Johnson.

“Going back the last few years in this rivalry, the first half was never a problem for us, but it was always Arundel’s second-half surge that allowed them to pull away,” Jones explained. “This year, we’ve been preaching ‘finish’ to the kids, and that’s exactly what they did last Friday. We knew Arundel was going to make a run in the second half, but we rode the wave, stayed consistent and patient, and eventually we were able to make our own run to close out the game.”

Week 3 – Ryan Pittillo (Towson Generals)

On Saturday, September 16th, Towson (2-1) hosted their archrival Dulaney (Timonium, Md.) Lions, and for the first time in three years, the Generals bested their Baltimore County foe (42-36). Falling behind early, 14-0, Towson trailed by two (28-26) entering the game’s final frame. The Generals took their first lead on a fourth quarter touchdown run by sophomore captain RB Nayshin Simmons, but the Lions answered right back with a tally of their own, regaining the lead, 36-34. Simmons then notched the game-winning score for the Generals in the game’s waning minutes.

“As a first-year head coach, my staff and I have been working hard to instill mental toughness into the kids, and they’ve really bought in,” Pittillo explained. “The kids come to practice every day, they pay attention and they believe. Now we’re off to a nice start because of that. These guys want to win, and they’re putting in the work to achieve it.”

Week 4 – Tim Palmer (Harford Technical Cobras)

On Friday, September 22nd, Harford Tech hosted the Patterson Mill (Bel Air, Md.) Huskies in each school’s Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Susquehanna Division season opener. After trailing early, 7-0, the Cobras rattled off 48 unanswered points to secure the victory. In Palmer’s first year at the helm, Harford Tech improved to 4-0 for the first time in school history.

Leading 14-7 at halftime, the Cobras pulled away in the second half behind two touchdown runs by senior RB Kyle Cicone. An additional rushing score by junior RB Jalen Dangerfield, a passing touchdown from sophomore QB Ryan Hunt to senior WR Jordan Bright and a fumble recovery touchdown by senior LB Phinehas Wiredu helped secure the victory for Harford Tech.

“As a new coaching staff, we have put a big emphasis on accountability in the program, both on and off the field,” Palmer explained. “The kids have bought in, and that has helped us get off to a great start this year.”

Week 5 – Brian Van Deusen (River Hill Hawks)

On Thursday, September 28th, River Hill hosted the Long Reach (Columbia, Md.) Lightning in a matchup of undefeated Howard County foes. After rushing for more than 300 yards, forcing three interceptions and tallying six sacks, the Hawks kept their perfect record intact (4-0) with a 42-6 victory. River Hill jumped to an early 21-0 lead and did not allow a score until midway through the third quarter, and added an additional 21 points to close the game.

“It all starts with our 21 seniors. Those guys did an outstanding job this offseason and have led the way during the season for us too,” Van Deusen explained. “Long Reach is a good team – especially on the offensive and defensive lines – but our guys were up to the challenge last week. We ran the ball well and made enough big plays on both sides of the ball to come up with the victory.”

Week 6 – Biff Poggi & Henry Russell (St. Frances Academy Panthers)

On Friday, October 6th, St. Frances hosted the McDonogh School (Owings Mills, Md.) Eagles in a matchup of perennial Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association “A” Conference powers. Spurred by an efficient rushing attack and a stifling defensive effort, the Panthers scored in each quarter to maintain their unblemished record (6-0) with a 28-0 victory. Having allowed just 15 total points through six contests, last week’s shutout marks the fourth of the season for St. Frances.

“Our defense really flew around and contained McDonogh’s top offensive threats, while creating five interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown,” Russell explained. “Offensively we were able to get the ball moving on the ground, and our quarterback did a good job organizing us to get into the end zone against a strong McDonogh defense.”
