Douglass' Camron West wins final Ravens QB Challenge of the year

Douglass quarterback Camron West added another prize to the Ducks' history-making season Sunday when he won the final Ravens QB Challenge of the year at M&T Bank Stadium.

At halftime of the Ravens-Patriots game, West took on Patterson quarterback Kennard Pugh to see who could complete the longest pass. West hit Davon Monette with a 49-yard pass to win the challenge over Pugh's 41-yard completion to Jacob Jones.

West, a junior, helped the Ducks to a 13-1 season -- the best in school history. Not only did they win the first football playoff game in program history, but the No. 14 Ducks made it to the state final.

Along the way they edged Baltimore City rival Edmondson, 20-14 in double overtime, and won the state semifinal, 54-13, over Cambridge-South Dorchester. Fort Hill ended their bid for a perfect season with a 25-0 win in the Class 1A title game at M&T Bank Stadium two weeks ago.

At halftime of the Ravens-Vikings game on Dec. 8, Douglass coach Elwood Townsend was named the Ravens' High School Coach of the Year. In two years, he turned a 3-7 team into a state finalist.

The Ducks' opponents in the QB Challenge also had a stellar season. Pugh, a sophomore, helped the Clippers reach the state semifinals for the first time since 2004. They defeated Dunbar, 14-0, in the regional final before falling to Patuxent, 42-8, in the Class 2A state semifinal.
