Loyola, midfielder, senior
South River, attackman, junior
With quick feet and an equally quick release, Chisolm scored 37 goals last year, including six in the state title game. Well aware of the extra attention he draws, the Maryland commitment also is an effective distributor; he had 25 assists last season.
Hereford, midfielder, senior
Hard-working and tenacious, Demiris can dominate on faceoffs and shut down top attackmen. The Navy-bound Demiris won 71percent of the faceoffs he took last season, including 18 of 23 in the Bulls' 14-7 win over Middletown in the Class 3A-2A title game.
Fallston, defenseman, senior
A four-year starter, Esser is a dominating force with the long stick, possessing fine stick skills, smart positioning and gifted footwork. Set to play at UMBC, the Cougars' captain has scooped up 189 ground balls in his 48career games and also can effectively face off with the long pole when called on.
Gilman, defenseman, senior
One of the area's top one-on-one cover defenders, the Ohio State-bound Haus is an anchor in the back. Regularly assigned to the opposition's top attackman, the three-year starter and All-Metro first-team pick from 2011 is fast to ground balls (37 last year) and ignites the team's transition game.
Bel Air, attackman, junior
Dynamic and sturdy, Kalama, now in his third year of varsity, can score a nifty goal one minute and dirty the uniform to win a ground ball the next. His tireless approach sets the tone for the Bobcats' attack, and it paid big dividends last season as he finished with 45goals, 39 assists and 94 ground balls.
