Century, quarterback, senior
One of the keys to the Knights' run to the Class 2A state semifinals last season, Bordner (6-4, 205 pounds) threw for 2,217 yards and 18 touchdowns as the team went unbeaten heading into the semifinal game. He has orally committed to Boston College.
Loyola, quarterback, senior
Bruns (6-3, 205) spent most of last season as a backup QB but made the most of his chances when Leon Kinnard got hurt. In his debut as a starter, Bruns showed remarkable poise and threw for 274 yards and four touchdowns against Gilman.
Milford Mill, wide receiver, senior
Speed and great hands make Cheeseboro (6-0, 180) a consistent scoring threat. Last season, he had 38 catches for 776 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. Cheeseboro, who also contributes on special teams, has committed to Maryland.
Arundel, quarterback, senior
The first-team All-Metro selection set eight state public school records last fall, including throwing for 3,913 yards and 56 touchdowns, in leading his team to the Class 4A semifinals. Cosh (6-2, 195) has committed to Kansas State.
City, wide receiver, senior
The only Baltimore-area player in Ath- lon's consensus 100 senior prospects, Coxson (6-2, 195) is poised for a big season after making 34 catches for 821 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior. He has committed to Penn State.
Rudy Johnson McDonogh, quarterback, senior
A member of this season's strong crop of quarterbacks, Johnson (6-1, 210) threw for 1,838 yards and 15 touchdowns last season. Johnson, who has committed to Buffalo, brings the experience needed to keep the Eagles in contention in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference.
Jerry Lovelocke Edmondson, quarterback, senior
Extremely athletic, Lovelocke (6-4, 210) spent a lot of time at summer camps and combines, and he will have a lot to say about the success of the Red Storm. A year ago, he led a young team, passing for 2,526 yards and 25 touchdowns.
Hussam Ouri Broadneck, lineman, senior
Anne Arundel County's top lineman, Ouri will play center this season after playing all over the offensive and defensive lines since becoming a starter as a sophomore. Ouri (6-2, 290) made 40 tackles last season and had two sacks.
Mike Pitz Hereford, lineman, senior
Pitz (6-3, 310) shows an exceptional combination of speed and strength for a big lineman. He also plays lacrosse, which Bulls coach Steve Turnbaugh said has helped hone his footwork and quickness off the ball.
Matt Robinson Atholton, wide receiver, senior
Robinson (6-4, 205) looked terrific this summer at camps and seven-on-seven events. He has committed to Maryland and appears ready to better his output of 15 catches from last season.
