For the past six years, the Edmondson boys basketball team has played hard, with a great deal of passion and to the very end. The Red Storm is a reflection of their coach, Darnell Dantzler. It's been that way since he first came to the program in the 2007-08 season. In that time, he has produced a 114-31 record with a Baltimore City championship in the 2009-10 season. The 1991 Dunbar grad won two Maryland Scholastic Association championships as a player and has instilled a winning tradition at Edmondson, a West Baltimore school that was mostly known for its powerhouse football teams.  With a 6-1 mark and another gifted backcourt leading the way, the No. 4 Red Storm is primed for a run at another City title and an elusive first state title.

Darnell Dantzler Edmondson The Red Storm suffered several heartbreaking losses this season, particularly a buzzer-beating defeat in overtime against No. 1 Dunbar in the Baltimore City Division I championship game.

For a quality boys basketball team such as No. 7 Edmondson, a regional semifinal win is often considered just another step, a mere necessity to get closer to the ultimate goal of winning a state championship. But the Red Storm's effort on Wednesday night can't be characterized as just another playoff win. Shortly after the Red Storm grinded out a hard-fought 48-45 win over No. 6 City to advance to the Class 2A North title game and end the Knights' run as two-time defending state champions, it was apparent.

The music in the church had fallen silent, and the hundreds who had turned out to mourn the 17-year-old Mayfield turned their eyes to the child with braids and white floral barrettes.

Mayfield, a college-bound senior at Edmondson-Westside High School who was shot to death in West Baltimore last week, was the eighth teen gunned down this year in Baltimore - and one of three within an eight-day period.

COLLEGE PARK - Edmondson struggled throughout the first half of Saturday's Class 1A state title game and held a tenuous, one-point lead over Allegany at halftime. Then, Red Storm coach Darnell Dantzler adjusted. On offense, he emphasized patience, pushing his team to slow down and take its time to find a good shot. On defense, Edmondson switched out of a zone to a man-to-man. Those changes worked at both ends as the No. 6 Red Storm controlled the tempo throughout the second half and slowed Allegany's offense en route to a 54-51 victory at Comcast Center.

Coach Darnell Dantzler told his No. 11 Red Storm that, to win, it would take maximum effort from every player. For senior guard Chaz Lassiter, that effort was shown in a 16-point performance, including 6-for-6 work at the free throw line in the fourth quarter. For junior forward Kani Coles, it was controlling the boards and scoring a couple big baskets when they were hard to come by down the stretch.

Edmondson's football team will have its usual Monday conditioning session on Sunday this week, for a good cause. The Red Storm will race in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run Sunday morning at 8:30 at Towson University. Coach Corey Johnson told the players they could have Monday off from conditioning if they participate in the fund-raising 5K scheduled for the last weekend of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Johnson said the idea originated with Edmondson principal Karl Perry Sr. after Dr. Sanford Siegel, the president and CEO of Chesapeake Urology, mentioned the race to him. “My principal thought it would be a great way to get the guys involved and also help to bring awareness,” Johnson said, adding that Siegel picked up the $30 entry fee for each of the Red Storm players and Perry provided a bus. “They wanted to bring awareness of prostate cancer particularly to the African American community,” Johnson said, “because it really affects African American men at a much higher rate than others.
