John Carroll's Keith Rawlings named Ravens Coach of the Week

John Carroll's Keith Rawlings was named Ravens' High School Coach of the Week Wednesday after guiding the Patriots to a 47-40 quadruple-overtime victory over Boys' Latin Friday night.

The Patriots (4-3) trailed their Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference foe 14-10 at the half but had a 27-24 lead late in the fourth quarter before the Lakers tied it with a field goal. Jerome Brown scored the game winner on a 10-yard run and his teammates Nolan Clawson and Ky'el Hemby broke up the Lakers' pass on their final attempt to even the game on fourth-and-7.

The game lasted 3 1/2 hours and afterward, Rawlings told the Baltimore Sun Media Group: "I lost track of the overtimes. I seriously did. I don't know how many we played."

The Patriots scored the final 10 points of the game. In the third overtime, John Carroll's Steve Cutchin matched a field goal by the Lakers to tie at 40 and then Brown scored when the Patriots had the ball first in the fourth overtime.

"These kids are resilient," Rawlings said in a statement. "Our three losses this season have been by a combined five points. That shows these players have never given up in any games. They are mentally tough, and I'm proud of the way the kids handled themselves. We're battle-tested."

The Ravens select a Coach of the Week during each week of the high school regular season and one will be named Coach of the Year when all the nominees are invited to the Dec. 14 Ravens-Jacksonville Jaguars game at M&T Bank Stadium.

Rawlings joins previsous winners Dom Damico (McDonogh), Gene Liebel (North Harford), Greg Long (Havre de Grace), Thomas Browne (Oakland Mills), Marc Mesaros (Eastern Tech) and Brad Wilson (Westminster).
