George Petrides doesn't remember the first varsity football game he coached at City College in 1975. Years from now, however, he'll probably still remember his 387th. Not only did the No. 14 Knights overcome a 14-point deficit to beat Mervo, 20-14, in overtime Thursday, but the victory gave Petrides his 250th career win. β€œIt means I've been here a long time, first of all,” said Petrides with a laugh after the win. β€œI've appreciated every moment of it. I have loved coaching football at City College and working with these young men. You couldn't ask for a better life.” At 250-136-1, Petrides has more wins than any other active coach in the Baltimore area and ranks second in Maryland behind Good Counsel's Bob Milloy, who is 380-110-2.
