The annual Maryland Crab Bowl, which is a high school all-star game with teams comprised of Baltimore area players facing off against a team of D.C. area players is set to kick off on Sunday at noon.

Historically speaking the Washington team has the advantage, taking home victories in both previous Crab Bowls in 2008 and 2009. Check out Bowie State's rundown of the event to see some of the players who are considered to be top prospects.

It's a great opportunity to see some of the best players in the state, and the college recruiters will be out scouring the field for their next star player to vet for their school. Tickets sold at the gate on Sunday will be $15, and there will be an additional $5 for parking. Check back Sunday evening for a game recap and photos.
