Great season by the Hall but how soon they forget. IMO, the MIAA’s handling of the SFA boycott will always leave an asterisk by this team’s season record. The Cardinals also have to.play Loyola. CHC should win the 99th Turkey Bowl easily but that result is not a foregone conclusion. Stranger things have happened in the series.
Last, CHC’s 2010 team finished 11-1 and won the MIAA championship. They also finished #1 in the state that year and were acknowledged as such by the General Assembly at the State House in Annapolis. That team had 6 FBS players, four who started for their teams: Adrian Amos & Trevor Williams (Penn State), Will Johnson (Oklahoma) & Tommy Stuart (Boise State). Amos & Williams are currently starters in the NFL for the Chicago Bears and LA Chargers, respectively.
There were at least six FCS players on the 2010 team including a 2nd team All-American at Delaware (Ben Curtis). There were also two D-I college lacrosse All-America picks who started in 2010 at CHC: Garrett Epple (Notre Dame) and Stephen Kelly (UNC). Both currently play professionally for Major League Lacrosse (MLL). Rounding out the 16 standouts on that 2011 team were two DII players at Bowie State: Dan Yarborough and Dominick Sutton.
The 2018 team will go down as a great team in Calvert Hall history with awesome players but their football resumes are still being written. Right now I’d say rate 2010 as better, Good luck to Coach Davis and his young men on Thanksgiving Day.
