June 4, 2008

PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Tyler Fiorito, McDonogh

The Princeton-bound senior goalie and two-time All-Metro first-team selection was easily the best goalie in the area and perhaps the best in the country. He saved 293 shots at a 71.4 percent rate and allowed double-digit goals just once this season (against Boys' Latin). He paced an Eagles defense that gave up 5.8 goals a game, and he compiled 485 saves over the past two seasons.

Fiorito has been playing goalie for McDonogh since he was a sophomore and has won a playoff game each of the past three seasons. "He's just awesome," Archbishop Spalding coach Zack Burke said.

COACH OF THE YEAR: Jake Reed, Dulaney

The Lions faced no shortage of obstacles on their way to the Class 4A-3A title. Reed was forced to juggle lineups because of multiple injuries to key players. Starters Spencer Martin, Tom Webster, Ben Yancheski and first-team All-Metro selection Jay Mann missed significant time, and midfielder Eric Keppeler, perhaps Dulaney's best player for most of the season, missed the last month with a torn hamstring.

It didn't matter. Reed was able to rally the team, and it managed to beat 3A-2A champion Hereford and rival Towson during the regular season, and No. 15 Catonsville three times. After losing to Wootton in the state semifinals last season, it defeated the Montgomery County school in the semifinals this year. The Lions then defeated Urbana -- who beat them 8-7, during the regular season --in the finals. Reed is 31-7 at Dulaney and 287-152 in his career.
