Mount Hebron's Bryan Warner has made an early commitment to Rutgers to play lacrosse on a scholarship next year. The attackman scored 37 goals and had 35 assists for the Vikings this spring, and as a sophomore he scored 25 goals and assisted on 24.
"I wanted a big-school football atmosphere. And Rutgers also has Big East basketball," said Warner, who expressed relief that his college hunt finally has ended.
"It's a big decision, and I could feel the stress coming off my shoulders as I signed," he said.
Rutgers is a perennial Top 20 lacrosse team.
"Rutgers typically produces a couple of All-Americans every year and plays a good schedule," said Mount Hebron coach Jeff Doolan. "Bryan is a hard worker who is good at both distributing and scoring."
Another county player, Eric Jones of Centennial, is considering Rutgers and UMBC.
Centennial coach Mike Siegert is surprised at Rutgers' sudden interest in this area.
"They usually recruit New Jersey and Long Island kids. I don't recall any player prior to Bryan going there from this area," said Siegert.
Ed Holshue, coach of the senior All-Star football team representing Howard, Frederick and Carroll counties, was disappointed that his squad lost to the Baltimore City All-Stars Saturday at Towson University, 21-13.
But Holshue thought his team gave a good accounting against the city players, whom he said had crushed their county opponents in the 3-year-old event's first two games.
"We led 13-7 at halftime and played well enough to win, but we missed three field goals and an extra point each by a hair's breath," Holshue said.
Colin Donohue, Atholton's boys basketball scorekeeper, gets heads-up for noticing that Edgewood sent in a player who was not listed in the official scorebook during the Raiders' 76-74 victory Tuesday.
Donohue got the attention of the officials, who slapped a technical foul on Edgewood. Atholton made one free throw and also scored on the possession resulting from the foul, so it was a three-point move by Donohue.
