November 07, 1999|By KEVIN ECK | KEVIN ECK,SUN STAFF

Yesterday's Milford Mill-Randallstown game may or may not have established who the best team is in Baltimore County, but it certainly left no doubt who "The Man" is.

That distinction unquestionably belongs to Millers senior quarterback Richard Johnson.

Johnson rushed for three touchdowns, passed for two others and returned a kickoff 86 yards for a score to lead host and third-ranked Milford Mill to a 48-31 win over the second-ranked Rams.

Johnson, who is considering scholarship offers from Florida State, Virginia Tech, Michigan State. Purdue and Maryland, finished with 359 all-purpose yards.

He rushed for 148 yards on 11 carries and completed eight of 15 passes for 125 yards.

With the win, the Millers (10-0, 9-0) won the Baltimore County 3A-4A League title and the Class 3A, North Region crown.

Randallstown (8-2, 8-1), however, will not have to wait long for a rematch. Second-seeded Milford Mill and the seventh-seeded Rams are tentatively scheduled to meet in a Class 3A playoff quarterfinal at 7 p m. Friday.

* Gilman 42, McDonogh 10: Top-ranked Gilman completed a second straight unbeaten season with the romp over No. 6 McDonogh.

Gilman repeated as Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion, McDonogh (8-1) the B champ.

* Long Reach 41, Glenelg 0: Long Reach used five turnovers (four interceptions and one fumble recovery), a stifling defense, and a key injury to Gleneig quarterback Zack McQuigg to post the Howard County League victory.
