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 lineupsbecause 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 wasable to rally the team, and itmanaged to beat 3A-2A championHereford and rival Towsonduring the regular season,and No. 15 Catonsville threetimes. After losing to Woottonin the state semifinals last season,it defeated the MontgomeryCounty school in the semifinalsthis year. The Lions thendefeated Urbana -- who beatthem 8-7, during the regularseason --in the finals. Reed is31-7 at Dulaney and 287-152 inhis career.
