Harrisburg, PA - 12/18/2013 - On a cold winter night in December, most Ravens fans were home getting ready to watch their defending Super Bowl Champions face the Detroit Lions. Not BIG 33 Head Coach Brian Van Deusen of River Hill High School: he was at the Baltimore Ravens' complex in Owings Mills watching the Maryland Crab Bowl All-Stars practice. Coach Van Deusen was at the practice attempting to find the "Best of the Best" to complete his 34 man roster which he will take to Pennsylvania on Saturday, June 14, 2014. This team will represent Maryland in the 57th BIG 33 Football Classic. The game, which will be televised live on the NFL Network; will feature the top high school football players from Maryland playing against the best of the state of Pennsylvania. Maryland is hoping to avenge their lost in 2013.
Big news out of the TEAM MARYLAND Camp is that Coach Van Deusen has landed commitments from two of the top players in the state.
DeMatha's stand out wide receiver Cameron Phillips has committed to playing in the June game. Cameron is a 6'1, 180 pound wide receiver with excellent hands and is an exceptional athlete. He has committed to play football at Virginia Tech this coming fall. Cameron received scholarship offers from Connecticut, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Old Dominion, Penn State, Rutgers, Temple, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Middletown's Offensive Tackle Justin Falcinelli has also committed to playing in June. Justin is 6'5, 290 pounds and is considered one of the top linemen in the state of Maryland. He is big and explosive. Justin is one of the reasons Middletown won a state championship again this year. Falcinelli has accepted a scholarship to play at Clemson University this fall. He also had scholarship offers from Maryland, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The Big 33 Football Classic is know as "The SuperBowl of High School Football". It is a game rich in both History and tradition.
There has never been a Super Bowl played without a former Big 33 player on the roster!
