Alco, FH in Ravens QB Challenge

BALTIMORE — The Allegany Camper and Fort Hill Sentinel football teams will be guests of the Baltimore Ravens for today’s Ravens-Pittsburgh Steelers game at M&T Bank Stadium. At halftime, the Blue and the Red will go at it again as Alco quarterback Carter Imes and receivers Christian Thomas and Madison Wolford, and Fort Hill quarterback Hunter Squires and receivers Zac Elbin and Travis Bush will compete in the Quarterback Challenge.

During halftime of Ravens home games, the Quarterback Challenge showcases two high school quarterbacks from Maryland, who are joined on-field by two of their receivers, to compete in a passing competition. Both quarterbacks will be given two chances to throw passes to his receivers, with the longest completion winning.

While the winner receives a $500 Under Armour product credit for his school’s athletic department, both schools receive tickets to the game and both quarterbacks receive a football autographed by a Ravens player. The school with the longest completion throughout the entire season will win new jerseys for their entire football team, courtesy of Under Armour.

The current leaders in the QB Challenge are Century, 51 yards; Gilman School, 47 yards; Baltimore City College, 46 yards; Perry Hall, 45 yards; and Severna Park, 44 yards.
