9 area players are selected for Super 44 game

June 24, 1999|By Lem Satterfield

Two-time All-Metro receiver Lehrman Dotson of Broadneck, and fellow All-Metro performers Hardy McSpadden (C. Milton Wright), Scooter Monroe (John Carroll) and B. J. Thomas of Randallstown are among nine area football players slated to play on Maryland's team against Northern Virginia in next month's Super 44 Senior All-Star game.

C. Milton Wright's Steve Harward will coach the Maryland team in the contest, which replaces the Chesapeake Football Classic after six seasons.

Scheduled for July 24 at 6 p.m. at W. T. Woodson High's 10,000 capacity stadium in Fairfax, Va., the game will alternate between sites annually, said director Bob Goeghan, founder of the Capital Classic All-Star Basketball game.

Five of the previous six games in the series, which is tied at three wins each, had been played at the University of Maryland's Byrd Stadium. The second game of the series was won by Maryland at Memorial Stadium.

Under Goeghan, who replaced Chesapeake founder Jerry Franks as director in January, rosters have been increased by nine players to 44, and periods have been expanded from 12- to 15-minute periods.

Goeghan cited poor attendance as his reason for moving the game to more localized venues such as high schools. Next summer's game will be played on July 2 at a site to be determined in Montgomery County, Goeghan said.

Tickets are available through Ticketmasterat $10 for adults and $5 for students and children 10-and-under. (Roster, 7D)
