Rams look to be tough again in 2019

Edgewood will look to Keyon Brown to have a big 2019 campaign. The Rams won the UCBAC Chesapeake championship last season.

With practice for the 2019 high school football season a few weeks away, Varsity Sports Network’s Derek Toney takes a look at the regular season itinerary for select area teams.

Edgewood Rams

2018 record: 9-2 (Class 3A North Region semifinalist)

Overview: The Rams won the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Chesapeake title last season before losing in overtime to Dundalk in the 3A North semifinals. Senior Keyon Brown (wide receiver/defensive back) will be Edgewood’s main threat after participating in the National Underclassmen Combine All-American game last December.

Toughest 2019 opponent:New Town. The Titans reached the 2A state semifinals last season. The Owings Mills school returns several key pieces in Darron and Darius Broach (defensive backs) and wide receiver Gerrell Johnson.

Most intriguing 2019 opponent: Elkton. The Elks reached the 2A state semifinals last season and finished second to Edgewood in the UCBAC Chesapeake. Elkton returns one of the region’s top running backs in senior Tayshawn Watters.

By a number: 34. Average margin in Edgewood’s nine victories last season.
