Gilman coach Biff Poggi is this week's Ravens High School Coach of the Week after guiding the No. 1 Greyhounds to a 33-10 win over DeMatha on Saturday night at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium.

The victory marked the second for the Greyhounds in three weeks over a Washington Post No. 1 team. Gilman dropped Good Counsel, 28-7, in the I-95 Kickoff Classic Labor Day weekend.

The win over DeMatha, led by Darius Jennings' 276 yards rushing and two touchdowns and Kenny Goins' three touchdowns, puts the Greyhounds on top this week in the Maryland High School Football State Poll ahead of second-ranked Good Counsel. DeMatha falls to No. 5.

Poggi has guided the Greyhounds to nine MIAA A Conference championships -- some of them shared -- and is in his 14th season as their head coach. The Greyhounds (3-1) are the defending A Conference champs.

Poggi and last week's winner, Hereford's Steve Turnbaugh, will be invited to the Ravens-Saints game Dec. 19 when the Ravens' High School Coach of the Year will be named. Each weekly winner receives a $2,000 donation for his school's football program.
