Coach of the Year
Ken Hovet, Oakland Mills: Failure to win a state football championship has haunted former Scorpions players like Hovet and most of his assistant coaches. So has a propensity to take a back seat to Wilde Lake as Howard County's No. 1 program. With its state Class 1A title this season, Oakland Mills enters the off-season with bragging rights. Hovet, in his sixth season, has a 46-19 career record and has grown into his job well. He has a knack for knowing what's important and what's not, and for motivating his players to maximum performances in crucial situations. The Scorpions won all six of their games decided by a touchdown or less, including a 15-12 win over Forestville in the 1A state title game. Trailing 12-0 with 11: 58 to play, the Scorpions scored 15 points in the next 4: 35 to win. For most teams, the loss of an offensive threat like Vinnie Rubbo (Scorpions' all-time leading rusher) to injuries would have proved critical. Instead, Hovet expanded the role of Joey Ellis and gave a chance to young running back J. T. Rembert -- brought up from JV for the Scorps' last four games. Both came through. Hovet benefited from a strong senior nucleus of superior all-around athletes, and from an unexpected passing attack featuring quarterback T. J. Welsh and receiver Tom Browne. Welsh rebounded from a shoulder dislocation in a quarterfinal win to pass the Scorps to the title, and Browne, in his second season of high school football, had nearly 1,000 receiving yards and nine TDs after only two receptions for one TD last year. Hovet allowed the Scorpions to be an emotional team, but they were disciplined enough to have a turnover ratio of 39-14. He and his staff also developed a 4-4 defensive system that limited eight 1,000-yard rushers to an average of 60 yards per game.
Player of the Year
Ray Jones, Eastern Tech, senior, running back: This 6-foot-3, 225-pounder finished the year with 2,201 yards and 30 TDs (2,996, 42 TDs in two seasons) in leading the second-ranked Mavericks (12-1) to their first 3A state title game -- an exciting 45-29 loss -- last weekend to a Friendly of Prince George's County team ranked No. 3 both in Maryland and in the Washington area. A preseason All-Mid-Atlantic pick by The National Recruiting Advisor, Jones' raw power -- he has bench-pressed 355 pounds -- impressed Maryland recruiters at a summer camp, along with his 4.7-second 40-yard dash. Jones, who also had 14 sacks as a linebacker, amassed 544 yards and four touchdowns in three playoff games, including 198 yards and two scores against Friendly. "That kid No. 20 [Jones] is outstanding," said Friendly coach George Earley, whose team allowed more points by the Mavericks than by any opponent since Poly (40 points) in 1996. "He doesn't quit, his balance is excellent and he runs hard." Jones' other standout game was a 200-yard, four-TD effort in a win over league rival Milford Mill as Eastern Tech won its second straight Baltimore County crown and its first-ever 3A North Region crown. Jones' 156 points led the state after 10 regular-season games. Although he's orally committed to a full scholarship to the University of Buffalo, Jones, who scored 960 on his SAT and has a 3.4 grade-point average, also has been recruited by Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia Military Institute, Virginia Tech and Connecticut. Jones arrived at Eastern Tech as a 13-year-old, 180-pound freshman who had never played organized football or lifted weights prior to high school.
First team at a glance
Nick Alevrogiannis, St. Paul's, senior, lineman: Alevrogiannis (6-5, was the main reason St. Paul's generated over 2,500 rushing yards and 1,000 yards passing. Defensively, Alevrogiannis was unblockable unless double- or triple-teamed. He had 62 tackles, five sacks and an interception. A B-student, Alevrogiannis has drawn interest from Maryland, Richmond, Marshall, Temple, Virginia Tech and Syracuse among others.
Chris Barnes, Dunbar, senior, wide receiver: Committed to a full scholarship to Boston College, Barnes caught 32 passes for 448 yards and seven TDs and has 24 career TDs and over 2,500 yards. A 3.3 student and two-time second-team All-Metro pick, Barnes (6-0, 195) turned down a scholarship offer from Georgia Tech and also considered Virginia Tech and Maryland. Barnes recovered a fumble for one TD, returned a punt for another and had six sacks as a defensive end. Barnes was the first freshman to start at Poly, playing there two years under Augie Waible, then transferring to Dunbar.
Ryan Boyle, Gilman, junior, quarterback: Boyle (5-11, 170) was 117 of 150 passing for 1,908 yards and 20 TDs and rushed for 535 yards and five more scores. He has 2,373 passing yards and 1,347 rushing over the last two seasons, and this year's completion ratio (78 percent) shattered the previous state record of 69.4 established by Ryan Fleetwood of Cambridge. A 4.0 student who also plays basketball, Boyle was a first-team All-Metro lacrosse attackman last spring. In consecutive routs of Loyola (31-7) and Calvert Hall (42-21), Boyle was a combined 12-for-21 for 376 yards and seven TDs and rushed for 212 yards and TDs of 71 and 68 yards.
Dan Burke, Broadneck, senior, lineman: Anne Arundel County's most productive offensive unit was guided by the 6-0, 240-pound center. Burke was solid with his snaps and blocking, resulting in precision-like starts for the Bruins in their run-and-shoot/option attack. Burke prevented opposing nose guards from penetrating.
Damien Davis, Gilman, senior, running back: A second-team All-City/County pick last year, Davis (6-2, 205), last year's Male Athlete of the Year, rushed for 1,000 yards and 10 TDs and had 22 catches for 181 yards and three more scores. A preseason Prep-Star All-American as well as an All-Mid-Atlantic Region pick by The National Recruiting Advisor, Davis runs a 4.5-second 40-yard dash, which helped him score the first touchdowns in each of the Greyhounds' first four games. Davis scored 1,200 on his SAT and is a 3.4 student. An All-Metro wrestler and an All-Metro lacrosse defenseman, Davis was offered several football scholarships. But as the nation's No. 1 high school lacrosse recruit on defense, he's headed for Princeton to play lacrosse and football.
Marquis Dwarte, Perry Hall, senior, running back: Dwarte (5-7, 175) ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash at a Maryland combine, benches 315 pounds and has a full scholarship offer from the University of Buffalo. Dwarte established single-season school records for rushing (1,810 yards on 165 carries) and TDs (24), and career records for rushing (3,645), TDs (43) and carries (433). Dwarte averaged 10.97 yards per carry, with long scores of 77, 73, 65, 63, 59, 56, 55 and 50 yards. A hard-nosed player defensively, Dwarte had 38 tackles (26 solo), four sacks and two fumble recoveries as a linebacker-safety. Maryland, Towson, Fordham, Central Connecticut, Richmond, and East Carolina also are interested in Dwarte, a 3.1 student and full NCAA qualifier who combines swiftness and power when he runs.
Andrew Faraone, Gilman, senior, place-kicker: Faraone (6-0, 190) was 34 of 35 on extra-point attempts and tied a single-season state record with 11 field goals, including a long of 48 yards. A 3.2 student, Faraone's three field goals against McDonogh were one shy of tying a single-game state record. Faraone also played soccer this fall, earning second-team All-City/County honors as a midfielder. In lacrosse, Faraone was first-team All-Metro and is a U.S. under-19 player. Also a basketball player, Faraone has a scholarship to play lacrosse at Virginia, but will walk-on in football.
Adam Hendrix, Hereford, junior, lineman: One of four returning -- starters from last year's 13-0 Class 1A state title team, Hendrix (6-4, 260) bench-presses 330 pounds. He can pull, pass or drive block as a center, and routinely had pancake blocks. A sound two-way player, Hendrix was the main reason Hereford rushed for over 3,000 yards and passed for nearly 2,000. Also a lacrosse player, Hendrix has already received football interest from Boston College and Michigan.
Bryant Johnson, City, senior, tight end-wide receiver: Johnson turned down offers from Maryland and North Carolina State, orally committing to a full scholarship to Penn State. Johnson (6-3, 190) clocked several 4.3-second 40-yard dashes at a summer combine and caught 35 passes for 753 yards and nine touchdowns this season. Ranked No. 17 nationally during the preseason by The National Recruiting Advisor, his career numbers are 97 receptions, 2,294 yards and 31 TDs. A 3.3 student with a 1,010 SAT, Johnson also was state runner-up in the long jump last spring and bench presses nearly 300 pounds.
Rayvon Johnson, Annapolis, junior, running back: Only the second non-senior to be named Anne Arundel County's Player of the Year, Johnson (5-10, 170) used his 4.4 speed to become the county's first 2,000-yard rusher (2,060 yards, 254 carries). Johnson's regular-season totals (1,947 yards in 10 games) eclipsed the record of 1,862 set by Meade's Tanardo Sharps last year. Johnson's 20 total TDs (18 rushing) are both school records, as are his five 200-yard games -- one game short of the county record. Johnson's season-high (259 yards) came vs. Meade, and his season-low (113) in a first-round playoff loss to Sherwood of Montgomery County.
Richard Johnson, Milford Mill, junior, all-purpose: Nebraska, Michigan, Maryland and Northwestern already have approached coach Reggie Brooks about Johnson (6-0, 165), whom Wilde Lake coach Doug DuVall called "a big-time" player. Johnson, who runs a 4.5-second 40, this year passed for 848 yards and 13 TDs, rushed for 604 yards and eight TDs, returned kickoffs of 81 and 85 yards and a 90-yard punt for scores and caught passes for a 68-yard score and an extra point. That's 25 TDs altogether for Johnson, who also had three interceptions. A 3.4 student, Johnson's two-year totals are 2,234 passing yards for 23 TDs, and over 1,300 rushing yards for 18 TDs.
John Kost, C. Milton Wright, senior, lineman: Kost (6-0, 270) is a third-year starter for the Mustangs, who reached the 3A state semifinals. "An excellent trapper and he had several pancakes in our big games," said Mustangs coach Steve Harward. Defensively, "teams like Damascus checked their offenses away from Kost," who had 88 tackles (47 solo), four fumble recoveries and a blocked punt that set up a TD vs. Eastern Tech. A 3.4 student with an 1,100 SAT, Kost is considering Kings Point and the Coast Guard Academy.
Anthony Lawston, Eastern Tech, senior, tight end-wide receiver: Ranked No. 6 nationally in the preseason by The National Recruiting Advisor, Lawston (6-4, 215) runs a 4.6-second 40-yard dash, earned All-Metro and All-State honors last year and has been offered full scholarships to Penn State, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Wisconsin, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Syracuse and Virginia Tech. Pitt, USC, Michigan State, N.C. State, North Carolina and Illinois also are interested in Lawston. A National Honor Society member, Lawston has a 3.1 GPA and is a full NCAA qualifier. He also has 49 receptions for 823 yards and nine TDs this year and he has intercepted eight passes. For his career, Lawston has 152 receptions for 2,992 yards and 25 TDs and 19 interceptions, five for TDs.
Chisom Opara, Gilman, senior, wide receiver: A preseason All-Region pick by The National Recruiting Advisor and a Prep-Star All-American, Opara (6-2, 205) caught 54 passes for 942 yards and 13 TDs (two shy of the single-season state record) and rushed for 664 yards and five TDs. A 3.5 student (1,350
SAT), Opara ran a 4.45-second 40. He plays basketball and could be drafted for baseball in June. Opara has full football scholarship offers from Virginia, Duke and Stanford. He's also interested in Princeton and Harvard.
B.J. Thomas, Randallstown, senior, lineman: A second-team All-Metro pick last season and preseason All-Region pick by The National Recruiting Advisor, Thomas (6-4, 320) can move (runs a 5.0 in the 40). Thomas has been contacted by Florida State, North Carolina, N.C. State, Virginia and Temple, although he said he plans to attend Maryland.
Martel Threadgill, Broadneck, senior, running back: Threadgill finished his four- year varsity career as Anne Arundel County's all-time leading rusher with 3,996 yards -- 1,913 this season. Threadgill (5-8, 175) set a county record for TDs in a season (28). Threadgill had a county second-best 52 career TDs and a county career fourth-best 312 points. His best game this season was 248 yards and four TDs rushing against Gwynn Park, and he had a school record 91-yard touchdown run.
Player of the Year
Felix Isuk, Gilman, senior, linebacker: A repeat All-City/County first-team pick who also earned All-Metro honors last season, Isuk was ranked among the best in the Mid-Atlantic Region entering this season by The National Recruiting Advisor. Armed with a 3.6 grade-point average, a 1,220 SAT score, a 4.6-second 40-yard dash and a 340-pound bench press, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound linebacker-lineman accumulated 13 sacks -- five more than last year -- 15 tackles for a loss and 82 overall tackles. He helped the No. 1-ranked Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association Conference champion Greyhounds become the school's first 10-0 team. Isuk has elicited full scholarship offers from Penn State, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Virginia and Duke, and consideration from Stanford, Harvard and Princeton. "Felix is the complete defensive package. He could not be blocked, one-on-one," coach Biff Poggi said. "Felix has a Division I first move off the ball, and when he gets there, he delivers with unbelievable force."
First team at a glance
Justin Amrein, Bel Air, senior, linebacker: A three-year starter with over 400 career tackles, Amrein (6-0, 190) this year had 144 tackles, 16 tackles for losses, three each in sacks and pass breakups as the Harford County co-champion Bobcats reached the 3A playoffs for the first time in 15 years. Offensively, Amrein rushed for 783 yards and nine TDs along with five two-point conversions. In a quarterfinal loss to eventual state champ Friendly, Amrein had 15 tackles (10 solo), two sacks, two tackles for losses, three hurries and a pass breakup. He also rushed 11 times for 83 yards and Bel Air's only TD against Friendly.
Danny Bayron, Wilde Lake, senior, defensive back: Bayron (5-10, 210), a repeat All-Metro and Howard County's Defensive Player of the Year, made 75 solo tackles, 52 assists, three sacks, eight tackles behind the line, broke up 12 passes and had one interception. Bayron was the heart of the Howard County champion Wilde Lake defense. On offense, the punishing runner and two-year captain rushed 125 times for 837 yards and 14 touchdowns, and threw key blocks for teammate Jimmie Levins. Bayron, who scored 88 points, also returned 15 punts for 201 yards. He is looking at Towson and James Madison.
Marshall Contee, Randallstown, senior, defensive back: An All-State defensive back in Virginia last season before transferring back to Randallstown -- where he played as a sophomore -- Contee carries a 3.5 GPA and has attracted interest from a number of Division I programs. Offensively, Contee (6-0, 180) employed his 4.4-second speed for 1,420 yards and 17 TDs as the Rams dethroned last year's 1A state champ Hereford for Baltimore County's 1A-2A crown. An excellent open-field tackler, cover man and secondary pursuer, Contee "never let us break anything in the secondary because he'd chase us down," said Einstein coach Ed Ashwell. Contee had 10 pass breakups, two interceptions and "is a vicious hitter," said coach Bruce Strunk.
Owen Daly, McDonogh, senior, defensive back: As a defensive back-wide receiver, Daly (6-2, 175) scored TDs on two of six interceptions -- he has 19 interceptions as a four-year starter -- and caught 30 passes for over 600 yards and six TDs as McDonogh won its second straight MIAA B Conference crown. Daly ranks as the country's No. 1 midfield recruit in lacrosse, where he earned All-Metro honors last year and is headed for NCAA champion Princeton next season. A 3.3 student with a 1,200 SAT score, Daly also is a member of the U.S. under-19 lacrosse team and will play basketball for the Eagles' defending MIAA B Conference champion basketball squad.
Lehrman Dotson, Broadneck, senior, defensive back: An All-County and All-Metro wide receiver as a junior when he set a school record for touchdown receptions (14), Dotson (6-1, 170) was a threat from anywhere on the field. He read offenses as a defensive back -- snagging an interception -- as well as a QB, a spot he moved to out of necessity midway through the year. Dotson scored three receiving TDs, rushed for eight TDs and threw for five. He also punted and returned kicks.
Joey Ellis, Oakland Mills, senior, defensive back: The most versatile player in Howard County, Ellis made 52 solo tackles, 65 assists and intercepted eight passes -- one shy of the school record -- returning two for touchdowns for the 1A state champs. Ellis also had six sacks. On offense, Ellis rushed 90 times for 825 yards and one touchdown and caught 27 passes for 572 yards and three touchdowns. Ellis rushed for 117 yards against Forestville. His 13-yard reception to the Knights' 2-yard line set up the game-winning TD, and his tackle at his own 5-yard with under two minutes left saved the game.
Leroy Eyler, South Carroll, senior, lineman: This Carroll County Defensive Player of the Year was a two-way veteran on a team that held 2A state champ Urbana (averaged 35 points) to a season low in a 17-14 loss. The Cavaliers also edged Frederick County power Linganore with the help of Eyler (6-0, 200), a wrestler and an honor roll student who had 68 tackles and five sacks. "He's been a stud performer all year," said South Carroll coach Gene Brown.
C. J. Feldheim, Hereford, junior, lineman: Feldheim (6-4, 215) is an excellent two-way lineman, finishing with nine sacks and 18 tackles behind the line of scrimmage among his 69 tackles. Feldheim also recovered four fumbles. A National Honor Society member, Feldheim has a 3.81 GPA and also wrestles and plays baseball. Feldheim bench-presses 330 pounds. Defensive coordinator Mike Blizzard views Feldheim as a developing Division I prospect.
Jay Frizzelle, Oakland Mills, senior, lineman: A two-time first-team All-Howard County selection, Frizzelle (5-11, 240) was
one of the most hard-nosed players in the league with over 100 tackles, 13 sacks and eight fumble recoveries. A county and region champion wrestler, Frizzelle had two sacks and one fumble recovery in each of the Scorpions' last two games. Offensively, he could block for the pass or the run, but excelled at trap-blocking.
Eddie Henry, Poly, senior, punter: Henry punted 33 times for 1,488 yards (a 45-yard average), including a 64-yarder in the Engineers' 13-12 win over rival City, where Henry's 54-yard scoring reception secured the win with 35 seconds left. As a receiver, Henry had 24 receptions for 844 yards and 11 TDs -- including an overtime game-winner against Salesianum of Delaware. Henry (5-11, 175) is considering Maryland, UMBC and Hampton.
Ralph Henry, Eastern Tech, senior, lineman: Henry (6-3, 245) earned second-team All-Metro honors last year, has a 3.71 GPA and scored 980 on his SAT. He runs a 4.9-second 40-yard dash and has 29 sacks -- five of which came in last weekend's 3A state title game loss to Friendly -- and 45 sacks over two seasons. As a full NCAA qualifier, Henry has such programs as Richmond, North Carolina A&T;, James Madison and Connecticut interested in him.
Brian Lewis, Gilman, senior, lineman: A three-sport athlete who also runs track and was fourth in last year's private school state wrestling tournament, Lewis (6-0, 180) is a vicious hitter whose 12 sacks were tied for second on the team behind Isuk. Lewis ranked second with 73 tackles on a Gilman team whose defense scored 7.8 points per game. He runs a 4.6-second 40-yard dash and carries a 3.1 GPA.
Shannon Maynard, Edgewood, junior, linebacker: "A tough kid who limited what we could do," according to Bel Air coach Bruce Riley, Maynard (6-4, 215) could bloom into a Division I prospect with his strength (455-pound squat, 345-pound dead lift) and expected growth. Maynard's 118 tackles included eight sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries -- one of which he returned 40 yards for a TD. Maynard scored 26 points for the Rams (8-3), including two TD receptions, one of which secured ** an 8-6 win over Harford County co-champ C. Milton Wright in the Mustangs' only regular-season loss.
Hardy McSpadden, C. Milton Wright, senior, defensive back: "You name it, No. 2 [McSpadden] did it," said Calvert Hall coach Lou Eckerl. A three-year starter, McSpadden (5-9, 160) scored 17 TDs, kicked a 23-yard field goal and 21 extra points, and returned one of five interceptions for a score. McSpadden, who bench-presses 230, had 37 receptions for 397 yards and seven TDs, rushed for 422 yards and nine scores, returned a punt 55 yards for another score and punted for a 38.6 yard average. McSpadden finished with 58 tackles (29 solo) and a fumble recovery. Carrying a 1,230 SAT, McSpadden is a full NCAA qualifier considering James Madison, Delaware and several small schools.
Hun "Scooter" Monroe, John Carroll, senior, defensive back: A preseason All- Mid-Atlantic pick by The National Recruiting Advisor, Monroe turned down a full scholarship offer from Ohio University to accept a full scholarship to Maryland. "In my 31 years, he's our first athlete to go Division I," said coach Bill Mackley. A full qualifier with a 3.2 grade average and 1,010 SAT, Monroe (6-2, 175) had four interceptions -- two for TDs -- 30 solo tackles among his 48 overall tackles and two sacks. A four-year starter and two-year captain, Monroe used his 4.3 speed to cover 1,313 yards for nine TDs, and caught 12 passes for 376 yards and another score. Florida State, Richmond, Michigan, Wake Forest, Navy and Army also are interested in Monroe, who has 3,558 career rushing yards, 886 receiving and 721 return yards for 47 career TDs.
Greg Smoot, Calvert Hall, senior, linebacker: Smoot (6-4, 235) finished the year with 149 tackles, seven sacks and two fumble recoveries. Smoot ran a 4.7-second 40-yard dash at a summer combine, scored a 920 on his SAT and was offered a full scholarship to Penn State. Smoot, who has rushed for eight TDs, has attracted the interest of Lehigh, Marshall, Boston College, Northeastern, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Virginia, Wake Forest, Illinois, Richmond, Mississippi, James Madison and Mississippi State. Also a baseball player, Smoot hit six home runs last spring.
