But there is also the Rams' 6-6, 330-pound OL-DL Andrian Brown and Maryland-bound WR-DB Christian Varner, who returned one of his four interceptions for a TD in last week's 32-7 rout of previously unbeaten Perry Hall. But QB Justin Ross of Woodlawn (2-0 league), Varner's childhood friend, won last year's game, 12-6, on a on a 13-yard TD pass to WR Lewan Leslie before scoring the game-winning 4-yard TD run with 1:34 left. Maryland-bound OL-DL Scott Burley of Woodlawn protects Ross (901 passing yards, five TDs) and RB Jordan Brown (330 rushing, five TDs). Leslie has 22 receptions for 445 yards.

Loyola (2-3) at No. 10 McDonogh (4-1)
