Edmondson's Corey Johnson named Ravens Coach of the Week

Edmondson’s Corey Johnson was been named the Ravens High School Coach of the Week on Thursday after a 16-0 victory over Douglass that kept the Red Storm unbeaten this fall.

The Red Storm (6-0) recorded its second shutout of the season and has held five opponents to 12 points or less. They give up an average of 9.3 points per game.

“Our defense did a great job containing the Douglass spread offense last week,” Johnson said in a statement. “The defensive backs stepped up making it difficult to complete passes, and our blitz packages consistently pressured the quarterback for most of the game. It was a great team effort.”

In the homecoming victory, the defense also recorded a safety. Jordan Bright and Daniel Frink led the offense with a rushing touchdown each.

Johnson is in his sixth season with the Red Storm and has led them to a 45-21 record with a playoff appearance each year.

The Red Storm is one of three undefeated teams in Baltimore City’s Division I along with Dunbar and Mervo, their final two opponents of the season. This weekend, the Red Storm will head to Patterson for a Saturday afternoon game.

Each week during the regular season, the Ravens honor one high school football coach, who receives a $2,000 donation to his school’s football program and an award from Ravens coach John Harbaugh.

Johnson will join South Carroll’s Mike Kraus, Severna Park’s Will Bell, Kenwood’s Derrick Krumholtz, Calvert Hall’s Donald Davis and Long Reach’s Jamie Willis, previous weekly winners, at the Ravens-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game at M&T Bank Stadium on Dec. 16, where one will be named the Ravens High School Coach of the Year.
