These should be the best of times for Havre de Grace football coach Johnny Brooks and, at moments, his wry smile and playful nature suggest he is enjoying every minute. Brooks has led his alma mater to one of its finest seasons, with a No. 12 ranking, a 7-0 record and a first-place standing in both Harford County and the state's Class 1A North region. A game tomorrow against winless Fallston and an anticipated matchup with Aberdeen on Nov. 7 are all that stand in the Warriors' way of an undefeated regular season.

Johnny Brooks Aberdeen A year ago, Brooks coached Havre de Grace to the state Class 1A final. Then, looking for a change, he packed up his coaching staff and moved down U.S. 40 to take over a floundering Aberdeen program coming off a 1-9 season. "We knew what we were walking into," he said. "We didn't know the talent, but we knew we had a lot of work ahead of us. We got on them in the summertime about getting better and not having to be 1-9. … That kind of fueled some of them, and the senior captains really bought into it. They were out there in triple digits [temperatures]

Brooks, a graduate of Havre de Grace High School, where he has taught since 1994, will not be moving very far from his alma mater, as his new position will be with the Warriors' Route 40 rival, Aberdeen.

Havre de Grace senior Shane West kicked a state-record 59-yard field goal in the fourth quarter of the Warriors' 34-14 home victory over Joppatowne on Friday at James R. Harris Memorial Field. The kick eclipsed the previous record of 57 yards held by Perry Hall's Jason Bloom (1994) and John Carroll's Scott Collins (1997). "The game was pretty much decided and we had lost some yards, but he wanted to kick it," said Warriors coach Johnny Brooks, whose No. 14 Warriors improved to 6-0. "It would have been good from 67 yards, to tell the truth.

Maybe now, Havre de Grace football coach Johnny Brooks won't have to deal with that look. All season, Brooks has fielded questions about what constitutes Warriors senior quarterback and kicker Shane West's field-goal range. And Brooks always gets that same quizzical, non-believing look when he tells them that West makes field goals from more than 60 yards in practice. "Maybe, they'll understand now because I don't think they believed me," Brooks said. In the fourth quarter of the Warriors' 34-14 home victory over Joppatowne at James R. Harris Memorial Field, West set a state record by booting a 59-yard field goal.

Joppatowne broke open last night's Class 1A East championship game at Havre de Grace with a 20-point fourth quarter. But it was a two-play sequence in the second quarter that changed everything. Hakeem Hines appeared to score a touchdown for No. 12 Havre de Grace late in the second quarter. But a penalty wiped it out, and Dominic Harper of No. 10 Joppatowne got an interception on the next play and returned it for a 77-yard touchdown. That put the Mariners in front, and they never trailed in a 26-0 victory last night.
