All-Metro boys lacrosse: Player of the Year

Jack DoyleGilman, midfielder The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion Greyhounds had an abundance of senior-laden talent, and the starting point - and often the ending point - was Doyle.

Highly competitive with skills, smarts and athleticism to match, the Harvard-bound senior led No. 1 Gilman to a 15-1 season.

"Jack continued to push himself to get better. Everyone knew he was going to be a real focal point for us, but he worked very hard to prepare himself for that. He's very competitive, very skilled and very talented," Gilman coach Brooks Matthews said.

Along with scoring 31 goals and adding 13 assists, Doyle was a key on draws and ground balls, thriving on the task of providing something positive when the team needed it most.

He finished with three goals and two assists in the Greyhounds' 13-7 win over Calvert Hall in the MIAA A Conference title game. Also a first-team All-Metro selection last year, he closed out his three-year varsity career with 91 goals and 42 assists.

"Jack has a lot of dimensions that make him a difficult guy to stop. He's a guy who would stop a run if a team is trying to make one, and he's a guy who sort of maintains runs for us when we were on one," Matthews said.
