Coach's outlook: "So far, we're looking pretty good, but we're going to change some things this year. We already proved that we could win the states with the uptempo, run-and-gun style. Now, I'm bored with it. This year, we're going to work the ball around a little more, sort of a Princeton-type offense. We'll play more match-up zones, too. Although we may lose a couple, it'll be nice to play teams like Southern (Baltimore), Northwestern and Dunbar. I think Annapolis fans enjoy watching us play top teams."
Anne Arundel County Sun outlook: While it is true that the defending state champions may have one of the toughest schedules in the county, the stiff competition will only make them that much tougher come playoff time. Since employing a run-and-gun style two years ago, the Panthers have gone 46-6 with two straight trips to the state finals. Will Annapolis tamper with success by playing "Ivy League" style? Don't bet on it.
