Brendon Gaine, freshman M

Outlook: The Midshipmen are well-motivated after finishing out of the top four in the conference and failing to qualify for the league tournament for the first time in school history, which contributed to the departure of Richie Meade. The attack is loaded, but Davis or Dabbs must relieve some of the pressure from the midfield. The defense's fortunes will rely heavily on Wickham.
