6’0″ 2018 PG Sherwyn Devonish converted 9-13 FGs for a game high 24 points & was awarded Game MVP. Sherwyn is off to blazing start for the 207/18 season.

The Crusaders have faced tremendous adversity this season with injuries & late transfers climb to 8-3 after the victory. RBHS has played very difficult schedule & recorded impressive wins over Dr. Henry Wise & Woodrow Wilson HS. The Crusaders will face highly regarded Poly HS in the Governors Challenge in Salisbury, MD. on 12-27-17.

The Raiders travel to Laurel HS on 12-19-17 & still remain a top PG 4A contender. Look for the ER @ Wise on 1-16-18 & iise @ ER on 1-30-18 as huge PG 4A clashes. The Raiders have faced a brutal schedule, but need to get production from the bench & 5th starter.
