The Maryland and Pennsylvania scholastic coaches associations have verbally agreed to play again next August in the Big 33 all-star football game at Hershey, Pa.
An option year also has been discussed for 1987, according to Wootton Coach Bob Hampton, secretary of the Maryland Scholastic Football Coaches Association.
"To the best of my knowledge, a written contract should be signed in several weeks," said Hampton. "But that's just a formality. Both states were very happy with the competition in the game and the large crowd (nearly 15,000). This could be the beginning of a great all-star rivalry."
Maryland lost, 17-14, but nearly 20 of the state's best players chose not to participate in the Big 33 game.
"If we'd had just a few of them, we could have beaten Pennsylvania," Hampton said. "Now players know how good and how big this game can become and they're getting excited about the prospect of playing in it."
Paul Foringer has been named boys basketball coach at Churchill, where he was the junior varsity coach the past two years. Last season, his team finished 16-5. He succeeds Max Rinker.
"We'll play a pressing man-to-man defense and really push the ball on offense and try to make use of our speed," said Foringer, a teacher at Ridgeview Junior High. "We graduated five starters from last year's 12-10 team, so we'll be very inexperienced, but we've got the nucleus for a playoff team."
WDCA-TV-20 will not broadcast its "High School Sports Show," a half-hour local program that appeared Sundays at 9 p.m. last year.
