Havre de Grace football coach Greg Long was named Ravens High School Coach of the Week after his Warriors defeated Fallston, 35-12, in a clash of unbeaten teams Friday night.
The Warriors improved to 4-0 for the first time since 2008. They have now matched their win total from the last two seasons combined and are looking for their first winning season since 2010, when they reached the Class 1A state final.
Friday's win ended a 13-game regular-season winning streak by Fallston, the defending Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Chesapeake Division champions.
Jack Eberhardt threw for two touchdowns and Sean Cardwell ran for two as Havre de Grace beat the Cougars for the first time since 2008. Josh Penn also scored on a 50-yard interception return.
"The kids are maturing and learning how to win ball games now," Long said in a news release. "They've been through some difficult years recently, but the work they put in during the offseason is beginning to pay off and I couldn't be happier to see the success they've accomplished early in the season."
As Coach of the Week, Long receives a donation from the Ravens for the school's football program.
Each week of the high school regular season, the Ravens will select a Coach of the Week and the winners will be invited to the Ravens-Jacksonville Jaguars game on Dec. 14 at M&T Bank Stadium, where the Ravens will name their High School Coach of the Year.
In addition to Long, Oakland Mills' Thomas Browne, Eastern Tech's Marc Mesaros and Westminster's Brad Wilson have been named Coach of the Week this fall.
