August 25, 1994|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,Sun Staff Writer

Super Prep Magazine, the nation's top college football recruiting magazine, has tabbed McDonogh's All-Metro seniors

Bobby Sabelhaus and Dwayne Stukes as preseason All-Americans.

Sabelhaus (6 feet 6, 225 pounds) was selected as the top quarterback. He threw for 1,908 yards and 19 touchdowns last season, leading the Eagles to a 9-0 record and the area's No. 2 ranking. A two-time All-Baltimore City selection, Sabelhaus passed for 1,925 yards and 14 touchdowns as a sophomore to help McDonogh to a 7-3 season after it had finished 2-8 the year before.

He needs just 1,646 yards to break the state passing yardage record of 5,478, set by 1969 John Carroll graduate Al Neville.

Stukes, also listed among the top 50 players in the Mid-Atlantic region by Blue Chip and among the top defensive backs by Street & Smith, stands 5 feet 11, 180 pounds. He had 92 tackles, five interceptions and five forced fumbles last season.

St. Frances tops at Cromwell

For the second consecutive year, St. Frances won the Craig Cromwell Summer League title at the Madison Square Recreation Center.

The Panthers (10-1) finished ahead of Walbrook (9-2), Southwestern (8-3) and Southern-Baltimore (8-3). St. Frances' only loss was to Southwestern in overtime.

Junior varsity coach Eric Skeeters coached the St. Frances team.

Along with Mark Karcher (6-4), Skeeters commended 5-9 senior point guard Keon Chavez, 6-1 guard Eric Payton and 6-3 Russell Allen.
