Just two days after pulling off a gigantic upset of The Baltimore Sun’s No. 2 football team, Gilman, Calvert Hall’s Donald Davis was named High School Coach of the Week by the Baltimore Ravens Oct. 12.
Calvert Hall beat Gilman during its homecoming, 21-12, and vaulted into The Sun’s weekly high school rankings at No. 8 Oct. 13. The victory was the fifth straight for the Cardinals, who lost the first two games of their season, including one to Archbishop Spalding.
Calvert Hall is 2-0 in Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference play after beating Mount St. Joseph and Gilman.
Spalding, of the MIAA B conference, is currently ranked No. 11 in The Sun’s poll and is 6-0.
Calvert Hall will host Georgetown Prep Oct. 16 at 4 p.m.
Davis graduated from Calvert Hall in 1996 and is in his third year as coach there. He previously was named honored as a coach of the week by Ravens in 2003 when he was at Cardinal Gibbons.
The Coach of the Week receives a $2,000 donation for the school’s football program, a certificate signed by Ravens coach John Harbaugh and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and a specifically-designed hat.
Davis graduated from Johns Hopkins University and teaches English at Calvert Hall.
He is now eligible to be named Coach of the Year by the Ravens. That honor will be announced Dec. 13 when the Ravens play the Detroit Lions.
