Jason Ashwood

Hereford, attackman, senior

Quick and crafty, Ashwood brings a nonstop approach that sets a tremendous pace for the Bulls attack. Equally effective finishing or setting up teammates, he had 49 goals and 42 assists last year, including a four-goal effort in the state title win against Glenelg. Ashwood is set to play at High Point next season.

Loyola, midfielder, junior

Fast, strong and fiercely competitive, Conrad will be leaned on to carry the offensive load and bring leadership for the defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion Dons. Committed to Virginia, Conrad enters his third varsity season coming off a 22-goal, 32-assist sophomore season.

Joey Creaghan

Bel Air, midfielder, senior

A solid two-way midfielder in his fourth varsity season, Creaghan (25 goals, 15 assists last season despite missing time with an injury) does a lot of everything to hold down the middle for the Bobcats. He dominates on ground balls, is slick in transition and can score from the outside or get to goal.

Nick Forrest

Glenelg, attackman, senior

The focal point of the Gladiators’ attack, Forrest draws heavy attention from opposing defenses and makes them pay. He can score from anywhere, or set up teammates. His 54-goal, 34-assist junior season gave him 107 goals and 49 assists in his first three varsity seasons.

Ryan Hursey

Westminster, midfielder, senior

The 6-foot-4 Hursey (34 goals, 49 assists last season) is a towering presence for the defending Class 4A-3A state champions, bringing strong vision, excellent dodging skills and a tremendous outside shot. He’s a four-year varsity player and two-year captain, set to play at Georgetown next year.

Kieran Jenkins

Severna Park, defenseman, senior

Leadership, athleticism, competitiveness — the Georgetown-bound Jenkins brings all those qualities to the Falcons’ defense, and does so with a gritty approach that sets a positive tone. With his size, speed and tenacity, he’ll be counted on to regularly cover the opposing team’s top scoring threat.
