Winning a championship in sports at any level can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But for the 90-lb GORC Wildcats football team? Try twice in a season.
On November 16, the Wildcats defeated the Severna Park Green Hornets, 34-28, to win the Anne Arundel Youth Football Association American Division championship. The victory pushed the Wildcats’ record to 9-2 and capped a county-championship playoff run in which they avenged their regular-season losses by ousting both Old Mill (in the semifinals, 13-6) and Severna Park.
The Wildcats could have stopped there and still been the envy football teams all over the county, but the following week, GORC defeated the Calvert County 90-pounders in the first-annual bi-county championship bowl, 26-21, to finish the year 10-2 and double-up on new additions to the trophy case.
The GORC 90-pounders are Nathan Abrams, Peyton Bevis, Donoven Boggs, Jaden Brown, Clarke Braxton, Dylon Connoly, Ryan Edmonds, Cannon Greene, Maximus Greene, Dustin Grogan, Dillon Jones, Jake Long, Abraham Scrivner, Amir Somerville, Radek Starliper, Cole Stolar, Barry Strong, Jordan Tayman, Kellan Wyatt and Jalen Wyatt. They are coached by Jason Clarke, Richard Abrams, Larry Stump, Joey Boggs and Larry Greene, and the team parents are Patrice Abrams, Diahann Greene and Gina Walker.
