Walkersville's Polce named Ravens Coach of the Year

Walkersville's Joe Polce was named the Ravens High School Coach of the Year after leading the Lions to an undefeated season and their first state championship in 29 years. The Lions defeated Elkton, 33-6, in the Class 2A title game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Dec. 10 to finish off a 14-0 season. "A lot of these kids on the team this year were also on the team that lost in the championship game in 2015," Polce said in a statement. "That motivation of losing after being so close last year really pushed the kids in the offseason and during the entire season. They were driven and focused to not just get back to the title game, but to win it this year." In the playoffs, the Lions defeated Century and Middletown before pulling out their closest game of the season, 12-7, over Dunbar in the state semifinal. Polce received his award during halftime of the Ravens' victory over the Philadelphia Eagles at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday and is the 20th Ravens Coach of the Year. He is the second Frederick County coach to be honored; the first was Linganore's Rick Conner in 2009. He won over nine other coaches selected as Ravens Coach of the Week during the regular season: Centennial's Carlos Dunmoodie, Winters Mill's Matt Miller, Randallstown's Ray Wright, Parkville's Justin Payne, Archbishop Spalding's Kyle Schmitt, Franklin's Anthony Burgos, Patterson Mill's Steve Lurz and Old Mill's Chad McCormick.
