Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown

The Baltimore Ravens and Baltimore Sun are teaming up for the 5th consecutive season to present the Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown, and even more will be added to the program in 2019 – more schools, more giveaways, more Ravens players and more game day entertainment!

80 Maryland high schools will be included in this year’s voting, and each will be placed into one of five 16-team brackets based on geography. Fans can then vote for their school via Twitter or the Baltimore Sun’s website, and the winner of each bracket will be awarded the opportunity to host a Showdown this fall. (Following this announcement, the Ravens will work with the five winning schools to identify a game on each of their schedules to feature as the Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown.)

The five Showdown Games for 2019 Will Receive the Following:

*Tiebreaker: In the event of a tie, the school with the most Twitter votes will advance. If the schools tie in the Twitter voting, the school with the most votes in the previous week will advance. Finally, if the tie occurs in the 1st Round and both the web and Twitter votes are tied, a coin flip will be administered to determine the school that advances.
