Randallstown runs over Parkville, 20-6

September 19, 1992|By Bill Free | Bill Free,Staff Writer

Nothing could dim the enthusiasm of Randallstown running back Angelo Todd yesterday after he burst onto the Baltimore County football scene with two touchdowns and 138 yards rushing on 21 carries.

Not even the fact that Parkville coach Phil Donlin had never heard of him before he ran the No. 14 Knights dizzy in a 20-6 victory for the No. 11 Rams at Randallstown.

"I don't care," said Todd. "This is unbelievable. I'm only a 10th-grader and playing on the varsity and scoring touchdowns."

Todd, a small, bouncy running back, got his big chance yesterday as a replacement for injured Kevin Anderson, the Rams' top back.

Randallstown team physician Robert Riederman said yesterday that Anderson is out for the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

Anderson had scored three touchdowns in less than two games. He left last week's game against Franklin early when the knee began to bother him.

Todd, 5 feet 9 and 160 pounds, stunned Parkville in the battle of unbeatens when he raced 55 yards for a touchdown with seven minutes gone in the first quarter.

William Tonnesson kicked the extra point to put the Rams up, 7-0.

"Our guys were in a state of shock after that 55-yard touchdown run," said Donlin. "I've never even heard of Angelo Todd. We heard about their other big backs, such as Anderson and Haryn Singleton."

Parkville made a run at Randallstown, scoring a touchdown on a 25-yard run by Larry Duncan five minutes into the second quarter to make it 7-6.

Donlin decided to go for the lead but a two-point conversion pass attempt by Knights' quarterback Shane Eckels was incomplete.

Todd ran 19 yards for a touchdown with 4:35 left in the game, and linebacker Jevon Dolan intercepted an Eckels pass with 20 seconds left and returned it 15 yards for a touchdown to complete the scoring.
