Former Camden High two-sport standout Robert Council was named as the most outstanding player in Morgan State University’s 14-9 win over Howard in the 40th annual New York Urban League Football Classic played on Sept. 25 at MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands in New Jersey.

The win was the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener for Morgan State.

Council, a 2010 CHS graduate, threw for 119 yards as he hit on 12 of his 18 pass attempts for the Bears. He also threw a 3-yard scoring toss to tight end Kristian Johnson in the win.

A 6-foot-2, 195-pound redshirt freshman, Council leads the Bears in passing in having completed 24 of his 55 pass attempts for 316 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He is also fourth on the team in rushing with 39 yards, including a 25-yard carry.

Council was the Region 6-AAA co-offensive of the year for Camden High in 2009 when he threw for more than 1,700 yards and 26 touchdowns. He also gained more than 750 yards on the ground while scoring 10 touchdowns for Jimmy Neal’s Bulldogs.
