Loyola Blakefield football coach Anthony Zehyoue was named the Ravens High School Coach of the Week.
Last Friday, the Dons (4-0) hosted Howard and behind a dominant offensive performance from junior quarterback Jordan Moore, senior running back Kaire Umoja and senior receiver Keegan Pross, Loyola defeated the visiting Lions, 40-28.
Loyola hosts Wyoming Seminary (Pennsylvania) on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. The Dons look to continue their unblemished record and push for their first undefeated season since the 2008 campaign.
Each week during the season, the Ravens honor a high school coach who has made a significant impact on his student-athletes. All 10 Coach of the Week winners receive a $2,000 donation to their school’s football program and an award from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. In addition, each coach will attend the Ravens-Jets game at M&T Bank Stadium on Dec. 12 for an opportunity to be named the Ravens High School Coach of the Year.
The third of five Ravens RISE Showdowns takes place Friday at 7 p.m. and features Towson at Woodlawn. Both teams enter the game 2-1, as Woodlawn aims to avenge last year’s 14-12 defeat at the hands of the Generals.
