Westminster’s Wilson named Ravens high school coach of week

Posted on 10 September 2014 by WNST Staff

PRESS RELEASE

Brad Wilson, varsity head football coach of the Westminster Owls, has been named the Ravens High School Coach of the Week. Now in the award’s 18th year of existence, Wilson is the first recipient of the honor in 2014.

Last Friday (9/5), Westminster (1-0) earned a thrilling 21-19 victory over the defending Maryland Class 3A State Champion Middletown Knights. Behind a stalwart defensive effort, the Owls’ winning score came on a 22-yard interception return for a touchdown by senior Chad Patterson with five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Defensive lineman Matt Nichols secured a fumble shortly thereafter to secure Westminster’s exciting win.

The Owls’ victory snapped Middletown’s 36-game winning streak, which was the state’s longest active streak, dating back to Oct. 4, 2011.

“As we graduated quite a few offensive players after last season, we knew our defense was going to be the strength of our team early this season,” Wilson explained. “The defense, along with our special teams, were fantastic Friday night. We knew if we hung around in the game and were able to make a few big plays at the end, we’d have a good chance at winning this football game, and that’s exactly what we did.”

The Owls travel to Linganore (Frederick, Md.) this Friday (9/12) and look to avenge last year’s 41-20 defeat to Lancers.

Each week during the season, the Ravens honor a high school coach who has made a significant impact on his student-athletes. Each winner will be in attendance at the Ravens-Jaguars home game on Dec. 14 for an opportunity to be named the Ravens High School Coach of the Year. In addition, each coach receives a donation to the school’s football program and an award from head coach John Harbaugh.

In addition to the Ravens Coach of the Week, the Baltimore Ravens and The Baltimore Sun will recognize one local high school football game each week as their “Ravens RISE High School Game of the Week.” A preview of the game will be featured in the paper and online each Friday, with a photo gallery from the game posted following the matchup. (The Baltimore Sun will host a poll for fans and schools to vote for their favorite game.) The chosen matchup will also receive a visit to the game from the Ravens Cheerleaders and team mascot, Poe, and both participating schools will be awarded a donation to their respective athletic programs.

This week, the Old Mill (Millersville, Md.) Patriots travel to the Arundel (Gambrills, Md.) Wildcats for a 6:30 p.m. kickoff on Friday (9/12). The visiting Patriots look for their first Anne Arundel County win in 2014 following a 25-22 loss to Broadneck (Annapolis, Md.), while the Wildcats hope to continue their winning ways after a 46-0 victory over the Severna Park Falcons.

These initiatives are just a piece of the Ravens’ new football outreach program, Ravens RISE. With programs for all football players in Maryland, from youth to high school, Ravens RISE provides an opportunity to “Play Like A Raven” all year long through clinics, tournaments, grants, ticket donations, and exclusive opportunities to play at M&T Bank Stadium and interact with Ravens players and coaches.

An Open Letter to Bisciotti, Cass and the Ravens

An Open Letter to Bisciotti, Cass and the Ravens

Posted on 06 August 2012 by Drew Forrester

Dear Steve, Dick and the rest of the Ravens organization:

Please consider this as a follow-up note to something I wrote about last December when you all announced that training camp was being relocated from Westminster to Owings Mills for 2012.

You guys took a lot of grief from the fans – and some media members – for that decision, although I can proudly say I was one of the folks who implored everyone to exercise some patience and wait and see how the Ravens handled everything before making a full judgement.

I predicted, quite quickly after your decision was announced, that the Ravens would go above and beyond the call-of-duty to make sure  the fans were “taken care of”.  I suggested that fans simply wait and see what plans were made for the summer of 2012 and that my guess was they wouldn’t be disappointed.  I just happen to have a copy of that piece I wrote, in fact.  You can read it HERE. 

As you can see, my prediction was right.

Once again, you all came through.

I was out at Owings Mills last week to witness first-hand how the 250 fans who were “invited guests” were treated.  I watched them interact with the players afterwards and I saw the smiling faces of both parties.  I even took a picture for a family of four from Annapolis out in front of The Castle.  I asked them how their day went and 11-year old Amanda said, “Joe Flacco said ‘I like your braces!’ to me!!”.

That Flacco, what a touch, huh?  By the way…if I haven’t told you this, I will now.  That kid is a helluva quarterback and a terrific representative of your franchise.  I’d go on to tell you to pay him and keep him here long-term, but I know you’re already trying to do that.

Anyway, back to training camp.

I was impressed with what I saw at Owings Mills, but the real litmus test for those promises you made would come on Saturday at the first of the three open practices.

Let me first say this:  I completely understand how much of a pain in the ass it is to move camp to the big stadium for one day.  Most fans (and even some media members) don’t really see how difficult that was to manufacture on Saturday, but I do.

As is usually the case with the Ravens, you all pulled it off like a road win in Cleveland.  With ease.

The practice moved along smoothly and the fans were always aware of the drill that was taking place on the field.  No one was bored.  If watching practice can be considered exciting – and to the 20,000 who were there, it was – then Saturday’s event delivered the goods for everyone.

I watched all of the players make their way around the bowl of the stadium and sign autographs.  I’m sure everyone who wanted one didn’t succeed because of the sheer volume of people, but I’ll tell you what I didn’t see.  I didn’t see one player sign for 25 people and then casually stroll down the steps and off the field.  And I stood there and watched, trust me.  Every guy signed hundreds of autographs.  And then some.

So, congratulations on following through on your promise to keep the fans involved as best as you possibly can.

You won’t get many of these letters, because folks are always quick to bash you but slow to say “Well Done!”.

I’m here to say “Well Done!”

Best wishes for a successful 2012.

DF

P.S. I won’t be this nice to you guys if you lose to the Steelers this season.

I used to have the biggest crush on Shirley Manson. Hell, I probably still have  huge crush on Shirley Manson…

If you don’t want to go see Collective Soul we probably wouldn’t be much of friends…

John Mayer is apparently doing country music now. This is a classic example of when “success just simply isn’t enough.” See below.

There’s simply no chance MIB3 is something I’ll want to go see. And while Cedric the Entertainer is funny, I’d rather talk about beer.

I have no idea whether or not Flying Dog Brewery will be unleashing canned Underdog Atlantic Lager on the Zoo this weekend, but I DO know that the campaign they used to roll it out in our nation’s capital was simply fantastic…

Brilliant.

Posted on 04 May 2012 by WNST Staff

PRESS RELEASE

The Baltimore Ravens’ 2012 training camp, connected by Verizon, will feature individual practices to be held at M&T Bank Stadium, the U.S. Naval Academy and Stevenson University. All sessions are free and open to the public.

Additionally, by entering a lottery on www.baltimoreravens.com, fans in limited numbers will have an opportunity to attend training camp at the team’s Owings Mills facility.

Further details regarding the lottery, its entry process and the Owings Mills practices will be announced on the team’s website in mid-June.

“It’s important for us to connect with as many of our fans as we can during training camp,” Ravens president Dick Cass said. “We know we can’t duplicate the fan experiences we had at McDaniel College, but these opportunities will give many people an opportunity to get up close and personal outside of our home games.”

M&T Bank Stadium is scheduled to host a training camp practice on Saturday, Aug. 4. The Ravens are then slated to practice at the U.S. Naval Academy’s Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Sunday, Aug. 12. The team will round out its off-site training camp sessions at Stevenson University’s Mustang Stadium on Sunday, Aug. 19.

Head coach John Harbaugh and members of his coaching staff will host the Ravens Football Clinic, presented by Under Armour, for Carroll County youth and high school players at McDaniel College on Saturday, June 16. Approximately 450 participants are expected to attend the camp that will feature on-field drills, seminars and competitions for youth ranging from 6-18.

“Our staff is looking forward to the clinic,” Harbaugh stated. “We’ll teach some football, stress some life lessons and have fun.”

Additionally, on July 6-7, McDaniel College will host the Joe Flacco Passing Academy with Tyrod Taylor, and coaches Cam Cameron and Jim Caldwell. The camp is designed for 100 invited high school players, all of whom will work with the Ravens’ quarterbacks and offensive coaches, in addition to several of the team’s wide receivers.

“We’re excited to build relationships with area high school kids and work to help them improve,” Flacco stated. “This gives us an opportunity to teach young players many of the things we go through each week during the season. We want this to be something they can take with them and utilize in the long haul. This extends beyond football, as we will focus on what it takes to be successful both on and off the field.”

Fans are welcome to watch the on-field activities at this camp. Times will be announced once they’re set.

McDaniel College’s Kenneth R. Gill Stadium

The Ravens have donated $100,000 to help complete the construction of McDaniel College’s new on-campus stadium. Named Kenneth R. Gill Stadium, the facility will be used by the Green Terror’s football, field hockey, lacrosse and track and field teams.

“Through the years, McDaniel College has been a terrific partner with us,” Cass said. “We’re happy we can help them with this important project.”

Construction began this past February, and the stadium is scheduled to open on Sept. 15, when McDaniel hosts Muhlenberg College in the football home opener. Funded solely by charitable gifts, the brick stadium’s facade will match the other buildings on campus and serve as the primary focal point along the college’s entranceway.

UMBC Rally Falls Short in Loss to Stony Brook

Posted on 14 April 2012 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE- UMBC junior attackman Scott Jones (Port Coquitlam, B.C.) tied a career-high with five goals and led a furious comeback, but the host Retrievers fell to Stony Brook, 10-8, before 960 fans at UMBC Stadium.

The Seawolves won their 17th consecutive regular season contest and improved to 3-0 in the conference and 4-7 overall, while UMBC slipped to 2-1 in league play and 4-6 overall.

Jones was UMBC’s America East Player of the Game, while Stony Brook senior midfielder Robbie Campbell earned the honor for his side. Campbell scored four goals and shared the spotlight with junior goalkeeper Sean Brady, who made 14 saves for the visitors.

The Retrievers trailed, 9-2, late in the third quarter, but exploded for five goals in the span of 3:11 to trim the deficit to 9-7 with 12:17 remaining. Jones started the surge by converting a Joe Lustgarten (Wading River, N.Y.) feed with 32 seconds left in the third quarter.

Sophomore face-off specialist Phil Poe (Harwood, Md./DeMatha) won all seven fourth quarter draws and UMBC capitalized early in the fourth. Sophomore midfielder Conor Finch (Westminster,Md./Boys’ Latin) scored 52 seconds into the period, and after an SBU violation on the ensuing draw, Poe fed sophomore attackman Matt Gregoire (Crofton, Md./South River), who scored to cut the deficit to 9-5.

Gregoire picked off a Stony Brook clearing pass and fed Jones on the left doorstep for UMBC’s sixth goal at the 13:16 mark and Jones’ rocket from a sharp left angle on freshman Derek Bertolini’s (Madison, Conn.) pass brought the hosts to within 9-7 with 12:17 to play.

The Retrievers had two possessions to cut the lead to one, but committed turnovers in each case. The second miscue led to a Seawolf fast break and freshman attackman Mike Rooney scored to restore a three-goal visitor margin at 10-7 with 8:11 to play.

Jones scored his team-leading 27th goal on a cross-field feed from junior middie Scott Hopmann (Annapolis, Md./St. Mary’s) to pull UMBC to within a pair with 2:23 to play. But Bertolini’s shot with 1:47 remaining was easily handled by Brady and the Retrievers never regained possession.

Lustgarten had a goal and two helpers for UMBC and now has 10 assists in his last four outings.

Poe won 15 of 22 face-offs and led all players with eight ground balls. But UMBC suffered 21 turnovers in the game, mostly in the offensive end, as they only failed to clear on one of 16 opportunities.

Rooney also scored four times for Stony Brook.

Stony Brook scored the game’s first three goals and UMBC did not get on the board until 2:54 remained in the first quarter, when Lustgarten scored an unassisted goal. The Seawolves led, 5-1 after 15 minutes and 6-2 at halftime.

Shots were even at 30 apiece and UMBC junior goalkeeper Adam Cohen (Arnold, Md../Severn) made 10 stops for the Retrievers.

The Retrievers have another opportunity to take on an undefeated America East squad when they face Albany at home next Saturday, April 21.

the goal by Rossi as he now has a team-high 20 assists this season. During the team’s five-game win streak, Dashiell has totaled 22 points and 15 assists.
