Baltimore Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown
Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown
The Baltimore Ravens and The Baltimore Sun are back again, bringing you the Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown. This season our Showdown caravan will make multiple stops throughout the region highlighting area High School Football rivalries and each week will feature a live stream for fans to watch via the Baltimore Ravens YouTube Channel.
Over the course of this year's Showdown campaign, current Ravens players, Poe & cheerleaders, the Marching Ravens and more will paint the town purple with multiple stops under area Friday Night Lights. The show begins at River Hill on Friday, September 22nd and will conclude at the Frederick County Girls Flag Football Semifinals and Championship at Under Armour's "The House" Field at Port Covington in contingent with the inaugural Girls Flag Football pilot league. The games featured in this year's slate were determined based on pre-season ranking, geographical location and suggestions of area experts from the Baltimore Sun and the Ravens.
Returning this season, distinguished players and plays from the Showdowns will be voted on as Play and Player of the Year. These awards will be determined by fans in an online voting poll following the final Showdown game. At the end of the season, these accolades and the players receiving them will be recognized at a Ravens home game in December
