Outlook: After running the table in Howard County and defeating archrival Atholton in the regional final, River Hill meets its first opponent from outside the county and another team with a Hawks mascot. Urbana's record is deceiving, because it fell to three strong teams — Westminster, Middletown and Walkersville — before scoring playoff upsets of Damascus and Seneca Valley. While Urbana won the most recent of its five state titles in 4A in 2010, River Hill is the defending 3A champion and has won three titles in the past five years, the first two in 2A. River Hill, which has won 22 straight games, has relied heavily on the run in recent years, but QB Austin Altman (2,113 yards, 26 TDs) has given them an aerial game to go with RB Justin Arn and RB Evan Griffin (13 TDs each). Urbana is led by two sophomores, RB Raekwon Gay (16 TDs) and QB Donovan Parnell (1,303 yards passing, 10 TDs).
