Welcome to ESPNHS - Maryland

Welcome to the ESPNHS - Maryland site, where we cover all that's important to high school sports in the state.

This new site is a spin-off of the former MDVarsity.com, which has existed in various formats dating back to the early 2000s. This site will be maintained by Sheldon Shealer and Mike Loveday, a pair of ESPNHS editors. Shealer, a native of Maryland, is the ESPNHS national soccer editor and handles the records, rankings and history for Maryland high school football. Loveday, a Maryland resident, is the ESPNHS lacrosse editor and has been covering sports in Maryland since 2006.

This site will be home of the newly renamed ESPNHS Maryland High School Football Poll, formerly the MDVarsity.com State Poll -- which has been in existence since 1990. In addition, as we grow this new site, expect to see added coverage of high school football, soccer and lacrosse -- even out-of-season news in these sports.
