With each game, the offensive line of center Jake Faircloth, guards Zack Delker and Brandon Dixon and tackles Mason Klompus and Julian Robinson is jelling.

“Our offensive line is absolutely great and we’ve had the same guys all year,” Hambor said. “They are crisper, sharper and their blocks are in synch.”

Quarterback Justin Sprankle has benefitted and against Towson he connected with Teddy Crayton for a score for the fifth time this season.

Defensively, the Comets have rebounded after their injury-riddled squad allowed 56 points in a loss to Hereford.

Since then, the only points from Eastern Tech and Towson came in the final minute of each game.

“We are getting that bond, that connection and we have the chemistry,” Singletary said.

Hylton agrees with his classmate.

“We are a team,” he said.

But, coach Hambor knows each win affects more than just the team.

“This whole thing is about Catonsville in total,” Hambor said. “The team, the coaches, the school, the community, alumni, everybody. Our kids all really embrace that.”

After Milford Mill, the Comets return home on Oct. 26 against Kenwood (3-4) and Nov. 2 against Parkville (5-2).
