1. Gilman( Karl Merton Ferron, Baltimore Sun / August 23, 2013 )
Coach: Biff Poggi
Last season: 9-2, ranked No. 1
Postseason: MIAA A Conference champion
Outlook: A young Greyhounds crew grew up quickly in its season-opening 20-14 win over Good Counsel, holding the Falcons scoreless after the first four minutes. Poggi has never coached a team with such youth -- 21 freshmen and sophomores -- but, as usual, the two-time defending MIAA A Conference champions have a lot of talent, led by All-Metro DE Melvin Keihn and first-year starting QB Kai Locksley. The Greyhounds haven't lost to a conference foe in three years, and this group could make it four.
