Coach's outlook: "It's very early to tell where we are right now with just six returning seniors back from last year. We're going to have to grow up fast. We're young, inexperienced, and untested, but we have an interesting group mix of young players who have a very good work ethic."
Anne Arundel County Sun outlook: South River may be young, but word has it that Summey may be downplaying his team just a little bit, and the young talent that he has should be enough to at least assure another winning season.
