Cotton's team, which finished 1-9 last season, improved to 2-0 as the Auburn quarterback commitment completed 15-18 passes for 250 yards. Cotton, who moved to Maryland from Mobile, Ala., over the summer, hit touchdown passes of 70, five and two yards and he also scored the game's first TD on a one-yard run.
The quarterback's father, Raymond Cotton, Sr., says additional colleges are still trying to recruit his son, but notes that the 6-4, 223-pounder is firmly committed to the Tigers.
He also notes that his son's transition to the new high school team is going well and that there is renewed interest in Fort Meade football this season.
"Fort Meade has five running backs who are all real good and I don't believe any of them came out for football last year," Cotton says. "There is a lot of excitement about the team. The game on Friday night featured the largest crowd since 2001."
Cotton adds that through two games he can see a significant improvement in his son's plays. "All of the camps he attended last spring and summer have made a positive impact," he notes. "Raymond is definitely more accurate as a passer."
