Player of the Year
Kevin Coates, Annapolis
Coates was the go-to player on the county's surprise team. Annapolis, coming off a 13-10 season, started out 2-4 this season before Coates led it to 12 consecutive wins by scoring inside and from the perimeter, and often coming up strong on the boards.
A 6-foot-5 junior center, Coates is not a true big man, but he played hard and averaged 17 points and 9.2 rebounds in leading the Panthers to the county final, regional title and state semifinals.
Coach of the Year
Greg Smith, Old Mill
Smith led the ninth-ranked Patriots to their first county championship, the school's second regional title and a school-record 23 wins. Old Mill's season ended with a 51-41 loss to No. 1 Walbrook, the eventual state champion, in the Class 4A semifinals.
In his first four seasons as coach of the Patriots, Smith's teams were noted for a strong outside game and overall quickness. This season, he started two 6-foot-8 players, Rodney Stokes and Travis Hyman, and the results were impressive.
His five-year record is 74-47.
