Old Mill's McCormick named Ravens' Coach of the Week

October 04, 2012|By Katherine Dunn

Old Mill football coach Chad McCormick is this week’s Ravens’ High School Coach of the Week after leading the defending Class 4A state champion Patriots to a 5-0 start that extended the area’s longest active winning streak to 19 games.

Last Friday, the No. 6 Patriots defeated Meade, 28-18, with a balanced offense led by fullback Raykwon Young’s 119 yards and two touchdowns – one rushing and one receiving. The Patriots defense also came up big with three interceptions.

McCormick, in his second season as head coach after five years as an assistant, is carrying on a strong Patriots tradition in a program that has won two state titles in three years and has been to the playoffs 13 straight times.

Despite graduating a significant number of starters from last season, the Patriots returned a lot of talent and those players have kept the team on the winning track.

“A lot of that comes from a great tradition we’ve built here,” McCormick said in a news release. “It started with the former head coaches I worked under, Mike Marcus and Damian Ferragamo, and we have the tradition and the expectation to be successful every year.”

McCormick is the third Ravens’ Coach of the Week this season, joining Atholton’s Kyle Schmitt and Mount Hebron’s Phil Zacharias.

This is the 16th year for the Ravens’ Coach of the Week award. Each week a different high school coach will be honored with a $2,000 donation to his school’s football program, a certificate and a Coach of the Week hat. Each weekly winner also will be featured in a ComcastSportNet segment.

All of the winners will be invited to the Ravens' Dec. 16 home game against the Denver Broncos, where the Ravens' High School Coach of the Year will be named.
