Oakland Mills Scorpions

Football 1991/going For The Goals

September 01, 1991

Coach: Ken Klock, 11th year

1990 record: 10-2

Returnees: Seniors Monte Spencer (G/LB), Gregg Washington (WR/FS), Kelly Sykes (TE/LB), Akil Benjamin (DB/QB), Ty Wilkins (DB/K/FL), Leonard Boyd (DL); juniors Justin Wethington (G/LB), Derek Brooks (RB/LB).

Newcomers to watch: Seniors Antoine Baker (QB), Hakim Jones (DL); juniors Wade McHargue (DE/WR), Steve Coley (T), Geoff Henderson (FB), Eric Goodwin (C/DT).

Coach's outlook: "We've got a five-man nucleus of good athletes, and it's a matter of how well the other guys gel around them. The key is how healthy we stay with those five, and how quickly Antoine (Baker) bears the brunt."

Howard County Sun outlook: The Scorpions should provide the biggest threat to Wilde Lake's supremacy, although this year's team has its share of question marks. Baker has two excellent passing targets in 6-foot-4 Washington and 6-7 McHargue, but will he get the ball to them consistently? The offensive line is solid, but can Brooks and Henderson replace the yardage Korey Singleton amassed last year during his Player of the Year season? Will the defensive line and secondary play as well as last year's unit?
