Preps Area roundup -- Hubs win QB Challenge

August 25, 2009


BALTIMORE -- Lynn Lowman planned on showing off his arm.

"I'm just going to send (Anthony Winter) out to the 50 and throw it," Lowman said Saturday. "I'm going to air it out and see what happens."

On Monday night, North Hagerstown's senior quarterback fell 3 yards short of his goal, but it was long enough for a victory in the Toyota Quarterback Challenge during halftime of the Baltimore Ravens' 24-23 win over the New York Jets at M&T Bank Stadium.

Lowman hit Winter on a 47-yard completion to win the competition over Wilde Lake. Wilde Lake failed to make a connection on its two attempts.


The Quarterback Challenge is a showcase for Maryland high school quarterbacks. Each school chosen to compete has two receivers and a quarterback take the field at halftime. Each quarterback is given two pass attempts, and the longest completion wins.

It was the second straight year North won its appearance at the competition. On Oct. 28, 2008, then-sophomore Steve Coccodrilli helped North defeat North Caroline in an overtime pass-off.

It was the third straight season North was selected to compete by the Ravens and the Maryland Football Coaches Association.

For winning, North received a $300 gift card from Dick's Sporting Goods.
