BALTIMORE – The honors keep piling up for Bowie State University quarterback Amir Hall. He will be honored in an upcoming event as the College Player of the Year.
The Washington Football Legends recently announced that they are going to honor the 30th Anniversary of the Super Bowl XXII champion Washington Redskins, including game Most Valuable Player Doug Williams, at an event on April 7 at the Bethesda North Marriott.
Hall will also be honored at the 10th Annual Washington Football Legends Scholarship Gala as the College Player of the Year.
Hall was picked as the 2017 winner of the Black College Football Player of the Year Award. He got the Deacon Jones Trophy, named in honor of the football legend who made his name with the Los Angeles Rams in the ‘60s and early ‘70’s as a great pass rusher.
Hall helped Bowie State to a 9-2 regular season record and scored a spot in the NCAA Division II post-season.
Overall, he passed for 3,519 yards and 41 touchdowns in just 11 games. Hall threw only four interceptions in 381 attempts as Bowie State wound up being the best offense in Division II.
He threw for at least 300 yards in a game seven times and more than 400 yards twice. Hall also posted 294 points between his rushing and passing touchdowns. He also was named the SBN Doug Williams Offensive Player of the Year.
Mother Nature wreaks havoc
The Prince George’s Community College baseball team has had lots of early-season problems due to the weather issues the area has dealt with over the past few weeks.
The doubleheader versus the College of Southern Maryland, initially set for March 22 at home, was postponed because of field conditions with no make-up date and time set yet.
That also was supposed to be Prince George’s 50th Anniversary Game for the baseball team. Instead, The Old Fashion Baseball Game is now going to be the Owls’ home doubleheader against Chesapeake on Saturday, April 21 – first pitch is scheduled for noon that day.
There are also some other games that were postponed due to the weather as the team has not played since March 17. They were scheduled to be back in back in action on March 27 at home versus Anne Arundel at 3:30.
Terps beat North Carolina
Connor Kelly scored four goals, and Jared Bernhardt added three goals and one assist as No. 2 Maryland topped No. 19 North Carolina on March 24 in the Pacific Coast Shootout, held in Costa Mesa, Cal. during a men's lacrosse match.
Freshman Justin Shockey played a prominent role in helping Maryland with ball control as he won 16-of-20 faceoffs and added 12 ground balls as the Terps improved to 7-1 overall.
Anthony DeMaio added a goal and an assist, and this was the third time the team has gone to California for this West Coast game.
The Terps have beaten North Carolina in the game twice, scoring their last victory over the Tar Heels in 2015.
The victory gave Maryland, the defending national champions, a 7-1 non-conference record.
