South Carroll’s Mike Kraus was named the Ravens High School Coach of the Week on Thursday after leading the Cavaliers to a comeback win over Carroll County foe Winters Mill last week.
The Cavaliers started their final drive with 3:13 left in the game. Quarterback Mason Gavin finished it on a 21-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Brett Finzel with 20 seconds left for a 28-26 victory that avenged last year’s loss. It was Gavin’s third touchdown pass of the game.
Under their first-year coach, the Cavaliers have won more games halfway through the regular season than they did all of last season. They’ve beaten two opponents they fell to a year ago.
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.
