Coach's outlook: "I've been coaching for 22 years, and this might be the best set of seniors I've ever had. We have a lot of senior leadership on this club. We also return a solid core of underclassmen that should make a big contribution to our club. Offensively, we have the ability to score 12 or 13 goals a game. Last year, we had three aces in Mike Greene, Chris Vlahos and Craig Zimmerman, but this year, we may have even a better hand to work with. We don't have the dominating players, but there's a lot more balance."

Anne Arundel County Sun's outlook: With a cast of 10 returning seniors, Annapolis seems to be the slight favorites in 4A county league play. If executedsuccessfully, the Panthers' run-and-stun offense should be exciting to watch.
