Butler is listed at linebacker, Crown and Price at defensive line, Almony at offensive line, and Warren at kicker/punter. All five players earned Times first-team all-county honors this fall.

Butler led Carroll with 157 tackles and helped Liberty go 8-4 and play in the Class 2A state quarterfinals. Crown posted 29 tackles and struck a 6-foot-4, 280-pound frame for the Cavaliers.

Price (6-1, 245) had 45 tackles and was part of an Owls defense that posted three shutouts in 2019, while Almony (6-2, 315) anchored an O-line that helped Carroll County Athletic League champion and 3A quarterfinalist Westminster (9-3) rush for more than 2,800 yards.

Warren collected 43 extra points (43-for-45) and 11 field goals (11-for-16) this season — the Navy commit finished his high school career with 21 field goals and 104 PATs.

The Crab Bowl rosters are split into two teams of 50 public- and private-school athletes representing Maryland and Washington, D.C.
