Class 4A football

COLLEGE PARK -- Sherwood coach Bob Milloy has never been one to steal the spotlight. It's a good thing, because if he did, there might be a state-wide blackout.

With his team's 22-7 win over Eleanor Roosevelt last night in the Class 4A state final at the University of Maryland's Byrd Stadium, Milloy won his state-record eighth championship, putting him one ahead of former Seneca Valley and Damascus coach Al Thomas.

As usual, the Warriors' fifth-year coach wasn't one for boasting.

"If [Thomas] was still coaching, he'd probably have 10 of them by now," said Milloy, who coached at Springbrook until 1992. "I'm not too worried about [the record]."

Milloy watched as running back Tyree Foreman rushed for 130 yards and scored a pair of first-half touchdowns, and Damien Miggins returned a blocked field-goal attempt 61 yards in the third quarter to lead the Montgomery County school to its second straight state crown.

Sherwood (12-1) grabbed the lead early in the first quarter, as Foreman scored from a yard out and then ran for the two-point conversion to give the Warriors an 8-0 lead 4: 18 into the game.

They extended their lead to 15-0 on the second quarter's first play, with Foreman scoring from 5 yards with 11: 56 left in the half.

The loss broke an 11-game winning streak for Eleanor Roosevelt.
