INTERVIEWS WITH COACH KEVIN LYNOTT AND STARS ZACH WELCH AND SEAN WENNER AS WE LOOK AT THE SECOND STRAIGHT STATE FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP FOR MIDDLETOWN HIGH SCHOOL THIS SUNDAY ON FREDERICK COUNTY SPORTS WEEKEND ON WFMD RADIO AND WFMD.COM
The big point of discussion in most of the Maryland high school football pressboxes as the 2012 season wound down was just how good is Middletown. We all know they rule Class 2A but how would they fare against 4A Champ Wise or 3A Champion River Hill or 1A Champion Dunbar? We of course will never know for sure but we put the question to Coach Kevin Lynott and the players and you can hear their answers on this week's show. Middletown's historic undefeated 14-0, 2012 season will be talked about for years. Consider this: Over 7 consecutive games, down the crucial stretch part of the season, the Middletown defense did not allow opponents to get out of single digits. In their first three playoff games against South Carroll, Walkersville and Elkton they outscored the opposition 124 - 8. When Frederick Douglas scored 12 points against the Knights in the state championship game they were the first team to reach double digits against Middletown since early October. Running Back Zach Welch was simply otherworldy with 30 touchdowns and 2,367 yards on 260 carries. And he kicked field goals and extra points, kicked off and played on defense in the secondary. Coach Kevin Lynott has guided the Knights to the state championship game for three consecutive years. They have a 22 game winning streak and have won 38 of their last 40 games. Be listening to the guys who made it happen at Middletown, on Frederick County Sports Weekend , this Sunday (12/30) at 12:05 pm on 930 WFMD Radio and wfmd.com
