1992 All-Metro football team The first team

December 02, 1992

* COACH OF THE YEAR: Roy Brown, Annapolis -- After suffering through a 6-4 season in which the Panthers lost four games in the final minutes, Brown led Annapolis to the Anne Arundel County championship with an 8-0 record. After losing its season-opener to Randallstown, 18-16, the Panthers won 10 straight games -- including a quarterfinal-playoff victory over Prince George's County's Friendly High -- before losing in the 4A state semifinal to eventual state champion Gaithersburg. He led the Panthers to a county-record eighth playoff berth and its first playoff victory since 1984.

* OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Terrence Suber, City, QB, Sr. (6-0, 180) -- The area's best all-around performer and a repeat All-Metro pick, Suber -- listed in Street and Smith's at the start of the year -- used his 4.4 speed to gain 652 rushing yards with seven TDs, and was 46-for-79 passing for 944 yards and seven TDs. He had three interceptions as a defensive back. A repeat All-Metro pick, Suber led the top-ranked Knights to their second straight 10-0 Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference championship season. A National Honor Society student with a B-plus average, Suber expects to major in biology in college and is considering schools like Duke, Syracuse and North Carolina.

* Charles Adams, Perry Hall, OL, Sr. (6-5, 295) -- Adams, a state champion shot putter who bench-presses 350 pounds, was the key to the Gators' running game and their 9-2 season. "We run behind him in our Power-I and he's the center of the whole thing," said Perry Hall coach Joe Stoy.

* Shawn Scott, City, OL, Sr. (6-2, 255) -- Scott, who bench-presses 300 pounds, has excellent technique as a blocker and is quick off the ball. An honorable-mention All-Metro pick last season, Scott is also adept at pulling when City goes with the option or quick pitch.

* Chad DuBeau, Severna Park, OL, Sr. (6-5, 265) -- A powerful pulling guard, DuBeau was the Falcons' best lineman. He led two backs to more than 1,000 combined rushing yards and protected quarterback Tim Bowerman.

* Terry O'Brien, Glenelg, OL, Sr. (6-5, 270) -- O'Brien wound up his third year as a starter with his best season, drawing the interest of Louisville and North Carolina. "He's the best offensive lineman in the county. He just overpowers people," said coach Ed Ashwell.

* Jamie Waltersdorf, South Carroll, OL, Sr. (6-5, 280) -- His size made him one of Carroll County's most talked about players. The Cavaliers ran behind his solid blocking skills, which helped RB Mike Dodd (Carroll County's Player of the Year) gain more than 1,000 yards.

* Joe Gray, Kenwood, TE, Sr. (6-3, 185) -- An All-Metro pick a year ago when he caught 49 passes for 1,112 yards and 14 TDs, the speedy Gray had 29 receptions for 642 yards and 13 TDs, rushed for six more TDs, and returned two interceptions for TDs.

* Mike Quarles, North County, SE, Sr. (5-6, 160) -- Quarles, Anne Arundel County's Player of the Year, completed his fourth starting varsity season with 1,399 all-purpose yards and a metro-record 67 pass receptions (901 yards, nine TDs). He returned 19 punts for 278 yards and TDs of 85 and 64 yards.

* Eric Howard, North County, QB, Sr. (6-3, 205) -- Howard led the Knights (10-2) into the 4A state semifinals, setting Anne Arundel County records in TD passes (28, tied state record) and yardage (2,356) while completing 163 of 286 passes in North County's run-and-shoot offense.

* Mike Dodd, South Carroll, RB, Sr. (6-3, 245) -- As Carroll County's Offensive Player of the Year, Dodd used his bludgeoning style to lead his club to a 6-4 record. He gained 1,299 yards with 14 TDs on 254 carries -- 5.1 yards a carry -- nearly twice as much in both scoring and rushing as the county's second-leading rusher.

* Frank Brown, North County, RB, Sr. (5-10, 170) -- A transfer from Southwestern in Baltimore City, Brown (2,157 all-purpose yards) led Anne Arundel County in rushing (1,652 yards) and scoring (144 points). He had 24 receptions for 362 and five TDs and set a single-season county record with 24 TDs, a single-game record with seven TDs and a single-game rushing record (336 yards).

* Paul Brosenne, Glenelg, RB, Sr. (5-10, 200) -- Brosenne led Glenelg to an 8-3 season, including the Gladiators' first playoff trip in seven years, by running over and around tacklers for 1,570 yards and 14 of Glenelg's 20 TDs. He rushed for over 100 yards in nine of 11 games.

* Tyrese Barmer, Overlea, RB, Sr. (5-10, 155) -- His 1,467 rushing yards were less than in last year's 1,664-yard, All-Metro campaign, but Barmer's 20 touchdowns this season were two more than a year ago. He led the Falcons (10-2) to their second straight 2A state semifinal appearance, including a 216-yard, three-touchdown effort in a 20-0 quarterfinal win over Wicomico.
