by Derek Toney
With practice for the 2018 high school football season underway, Varsity Sports Network’s Derek Toney takes a look at the regular season itinerary for select area teams.
Havre de Grace Warriors
2017 record: 11-2 (Class 1A state semifinalist)
2017 review: The Warriors won the UCBAC Chesapeake championship and reached the Class 1A state semifinals for the third straight season. The Harford County school will have back all-Chesapeake first-team quarterback Alex Gresock, and wide receiver/defensive backs Jordan White and Christian Penrow for 2018.
2018 opponents’ win/loss record (from 2017): 51-52 (.495)
Toughest 2018 opponent: C. Milton Wright. The Mustangs returned to postseason play after winning four games in 2016, and finished second in the UCBAC Chesapeake. Brent Moody, a second-team Chesapeake defensive back, highlights 20 returning letter winners for the Bel Air school.
Most intriguing 2018 opponent: Edgewood. The Rams reached the Class 3A North Region final last season, ending an 11-year postseason drought. The Harford County school returns two of the UCBAC Chesapeake’s best players in University of Maryland commit Deonte Banks, and quarterback Antwan Banks.
