Westminster weighs in with county's best player and coach 1992 ALL-CARROLL COUNTY BOYS SOCCER TEAM The first team

November 23, 1992

* Jason Hewett, Westminster, Soph. forward -- When coach Chuck Beaver has a sophomore on the varsity squad, he doesn't have him sitting on the bench. Hewett showed from the start he belonged by scoring a goal and adding two assists in the Owls' season opener.

Hewett stayed consistent throughout the year, finishing with two goals and eight assists. He is a quick, unselfish player who knows how to handle the ball.


* Mike Locklear, F. Scott Key, Sr. forward -- His six goals and three assists were second only to Westminster's Tony Fiore in the county scoring race.

A dangerous offensive threat who has the ability to score with both feet, Locklear also stabilized the Eagles' attack with fine passing.


* Mike Roberts, North Carroll, Sr. forward -- One of coach Ed Powelson's more versatile players, Roberts missed five games with a bruised thigh. The Panthers were an entirely different team when he was in the lineup -- even when he wasn't at full speed.

A crafty offensive threat with good knowledge of the game, Roberts was with the program all four years and played two at the varsity level -- this year as a co-captain.

Despite his absence for part of the season, Roberts still was highly recognized by opposing Carroll County coaches.


* Kevin Dull, North Carroll, Sr. midfielder -- Capable of playing anywhere, Dull started the first two games of the season in goal for the Panthers and might have been among the best in the county at that position had he stayed.

Coach Ed Powelson needed his speed and hustle as a field player and Dull responded with solid play offensively and defensively. Dull is a two-year varsity starter. Powelson said Dull, a co-captain, "loves the game and really shows it on the field. He never stops."


* Kevin Henderson, Liberty, Jr. midfielder -- Coach Lee Kestler calls Henderson his "schemer" and most dangerous player.

The two-year varsity player has the versatility to play midfield and up front. A solid all-around performer with strong ball-handling skills, Henderson scored three goals for the Lions.


* Scott Ensor, South Carroll, Soph. midfielder/defender -- Preseason injuries led coach Charles Fazenbaker to promote Ensor from the junior varsity.

The idea was to bring Ensor up only for a scrimmage, but he showed so much he stayed the season.

After starting on defense early in the season, Ensor switched to midfield and played a big role in the Cavaliers' late-season surge. He has solid ball skills and good knowledge of the game.


* Travis Foote, Liberty, Jr. defender -- Promoted to the varsity in the middle of his freshman year because of injuries, coach Lee Kestler said Foote has been a steadying influence ever since.

An aggressive player with decent speed, Foote reads the field well at his sweeper position and has improved every year.

* NTC * Jeff Seaman, Westminster, Sr. defender -- A two-year starter for Westminster, Seaman took charge of a strong defense, which helped lead the Owls to a perfect county mark this season.

At his sweeper position, Seaman anticipated well with speed and was a strong tackler. Despite being only 5 feet 7, he was particularly strong in the air.

Seaman was a vocal leader on the field.


* Mike Sheehan, Liberty, Jr. defender -- Sheehan was the Lions' speediest defender with the ability to take risks and still be able to recover.

Sheehan was an automatic offensive threat with throw-ins that easily reached the far pole. The Lions scored three goals off his throws and coach Lee Kestler said they could have had many more.


* John Engel, F. Scott Key, Sr. goalkeeper -- The leader of the Eagles' defense, Engel showed he can do more than just keep balls out of the net when he scored on a penalty kick to tie the game in a victory over Catoctin.

A three-sport athlete, Engel started in goal in all of the Eagles' 15 games. His leadership keyed the Eagles' rally to the Class 1A state playoffs.
