Hubs Keith part of all-star extravaganza

July 09, 2004


North Hagerstown's Derrick Keith will be among an array of all-stars tonight in the second annual Maryland East-West All-Star contest.

Keith, a 6-0, 215-pound tailback who helped the Hubs to a 10-0 regular-season record, will be a member of the West team that will converge on Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

"It's an absolute honor for him to be playing with the best in the state," said North coach Dan Cunningham, who is assistant offensive coordinator and running backs coach for the West. "Derrick will be part of our jumbo package used as a fullback and a single running back in a four-wide set."

Teams are required to throw the football 60 percent of their play calls.

Keith ran for 673 yards and scored nine touchdowns.

Players went through practices this week at Frostburg State University.

Also on the West team is Frederick lineman Dallas Pryor.
