During the Maryland Crab Bowl on Saturday Scout.com was able to take some pictures during warm-ups…
Baltimore Game Thoughts
Dave Stinebaugh, who is headed to Maryland when he graduates, showed his athleticism and versatility as he lined up at tight end, split end, slot receiver, and was also the punter. The 6-foot-4, 220 pound Stinebaugh held his own in run blocking, however the stats won't show it as the team only rushed for a total of 15 yards. The highlight of Stinebaugh's day was a 2-yard touchdown grab, as he hooked up with quarterback Kevin Fulton to bring his team to within two points at the end of the first half. Dave punted the ball four times, averaging 29.8 yards per punt, with a long of 35-yards.
Gilman high school star, defensive lineman Brandon Copeland, turned in a fine performance compiling 13 total tackles, two sacks, and three tackles for loss. Copeland uses his hands extremely well to get rid of blockers, and pursues the ball with a purpose. He also comes off of the snap low and maintains his leverage when engaged. Brandon currently lists Princeton, North Carolina, and the University of Pennsylvania as his top three schools.
Kevin Fulton out of Milford Mill came into the game at quarterback in the second quarter and gave his team the spark it needed. Because of the intense pass rush coming after him, Fulton was running for his life on almost every pass he attempted. Kevin handled the pressure well, displaying good feet and awareness in the pocket, and if no one was open he simply took off running the ball downfield. His passes were not the prettiest thrown balls, however a completion is a completion and he showed terrific poise during the teams' late first half scoring drive which brought the deficit down to two points.
Caleb Morris out of Fort Hill shined all week during practice and continued to do so during the game on Saturday. Caleb lined up at defensive end, defensive tackle, and also nose tackle on the goal line. He possesses excellent strength and is a sound tackler. Morris showed good agility for a kid his size and never gave up on a play. Campbell does not have any offers from Division one schools; however his performance in the Crab Bowl could change that. Morris held his own against future Division one linemen such as Pete Desouza and Danzel Manley, and could translate that into a college scholarship. When it was all said and done, Morris finished with eight tackles, a sack, and a tackle for loss. While the Baltimore team was heavily out matched when it came to pure talent, they did not shy away from the challenge or back down at any time against a clearly more dominant D.C. team. After quickly falling into a 16-0 deficit, the team showed excellent resilience as they came back late in the first half to make the halftime score 14-16. After giving up two more touchdowns in the third quarter, the team did not hang their heads low, responding with a touchdown of their own in the fourth quarter, and if it wasn't for a costly interception late in the game, the team might have had a chance to tie it up and go to overtime. Overall, both teams played extremely hard, and the kids seemed to enjoy the experience all week long.
