Glen Burnie Gophers

1990-91 Anne Arundel County Hoops At A Glance

December 05, 1990

Head coach: Terry Bogle (24th season)

Assistants: Mike Rudd and Bill Nevin

1989-1990 record: 10-12.

Returnees: Seniors Matt Gross (forward), Carlton Ash (forward), Kyle Hackett (guard) and Brian Nevin (guard); junior Jeff Gross (center).

Newcomers: Senior Steve Smoot (guard); juniors Justin Slade (forward), Ted Wolf (guard-forward), Chris Weih (guard) and Brian Snyder (forward); sophomores Dwayne Newton (guard), Jamal Forbes (center), Vernon Osborne (forward), Jimmy Gloede (forward) and Eddie Nalley (guard).

Coach's outlook: "This is a rebuilding year. We're committed to youth.

We'll try to be very positive with them. They're a young bunch and we'll be patient with them. In the long run, this will benefit the program. This bunch has some talent. We have some athletes. By the middle of the season we may surprise some people. But our schedule in December doesn't help us."

Anne Arundel County Sun outlook: Glen Burnie lost nearly 30 points a game when Mike Thibeault graduated, and as Bogle says, "You don't replace him." Filling the spots vacated by members of his supporting cast is no picnic, either. The Gophers should take their lumps early, before gradually coming together as the season progresses. This is indeed a rebuilding year, and the playoffs seem out of the question in 1990-1991.
