Eastern Tech football coach Marc Mesaros has been named the Ravens High School Coach of the Week after guiding his team to a 2-0 start with last Friday's 37-14 win over Randallstown.

The host Mavericks trailed, 6-0, before Ian McBorrough put them on the scoreboard with a sack in the end zone. In the second quarter, James Rodger's 7-yard touchdown run gave them the lead for good, 9-6.

In addition to James' touchdown, the Mavericks also got two rushing touchdowns from Brandon Hlavach and one each from McBorrough and Dave Wozniak.

The Mavericks ran for 320 yards on 62 carries against the Rams, bringing their two-game total to 607 yards on the ground.

"We concentrated on our running game in preparationg for this matchup so we could try and keep the ball out of the Randallstown offense's hands, as their quarterback and wide receiver are really explosive," Mesaros said in a statement.

"All the credit goes to the kids on the field. They have been fantastic, they have responded well to coaching and they have a definite agenda to get our team back on the winning side of things this season."

The Mavericks, who finished 5-5 last year, haven't had a winning season since 2010, when they were 11-2 and reached the state title game. The year before that, Mesaros guided the Mavericks to the state Class 2A championship and that was the last time they won the first two games of the season.

Mesaros, in his 11th season with the Mavericks, needs two more wins for his 100th career victory.

As Coach of the Week, he receives a donation from the Ravens for the Mavericks' football program.

The Ravens will select a Coach of the Week for each week of the regular season. Mesaros -- along with last week's winner Brad Wilson, from Westminster -- and the rest of the winners will be invited to the Ravens-Jacksonville Jaguars game on Dec. 14, where one of them will be named the Ravens' High School Coach of the Year.
