Matt Allen, Howard, Sr., OT, 6-3, 240 -- He'll be Howard's best offensive lineman, paving the way for premier running back Guy Smith.

Mark Bolea, Glenelg, Sr., OL, 6-1, 220 -- Will be a key player in Glenelg's ball-control offense.

Jake Daft, Oakland Mills, Jr., RB, LB, 6-1, 190 -- He's a dominating defensive player and a power runner who will complement the running style of teammate Damien Smith.

Carlton Fox, Howard, Sr., WR, DB, 5-10, 175 -- He caught 35 passes for 399 yards and five touchdowns and made 51 tackles in the defensive backfield. A Baltimore Sun All-County pick.

He made 68 tackles, eight sacks and a team-high 22 tackles for losses. He also forced five fumbles, recovered four and blocked two punts. Many think he's the finest overall player in the county. A Baltimore Sun All-County pick.

Jay Green, Wilde Lake, Sr., OT, 6-4, 230 -- Great feet, height and smarts make him one of Wilde Lake's all-time best at this position. His agility should help the Wildecats use a run-and-shoot offense effectively. A Baltimore Sun All-County pick.

Robbie Hauff, Centennial, Jr., RB, LB, 6-0, 195 -- He's part of a quartet of returning Eagles linebackers that should make them tough defensively. He also expects a good season at tailback.

Jimmy Jackson, Hammond, Sr., LB, 5-10, 215 -- The most feared county linebacker, Jackson made 119 tackles, 10 sacks and 24 tackles behind the line of scrimmage. He also had an interception and fumble recovery and helped the Bears record four shutouts. A hard hitter and a Baltimore Sun All-County pick.

Justin Lavis, Hammond, Sr., OT, DT, 6-0, 240 -- He made 51 solo tackles, including 10 behind the line of scrimmage. He also recovered two fumbles for the Bears, who went 7-3. A Baltimore Sun All-County pick.

Carlando Love, Atholton, Sr., RB, LB, 5-8, 175 -- Rushed for 588 yards and averaged five yards per carry. Great speed. Could be one of Atholton all-time great runners if he gets some blocking.

Kevin O'Connor, Centennial, Jr., TE, LB, 6-3, 210 -- He was the Eagles' leading tackler as a sophomore and should continue in that role as Centennial looks to improve significantly upon a 4-6 record. A coaches All-County pick.

Dalawn Parrish, Howard, Jr., 5-10, 170 -- Howard won its last five games after he took over at quarterback. He rushed for 500 yards and threw for 500.

Damien Smith, Oakland Mills, Sr., RB, 5-11, 190 -- He rushed for 920 yards last season. He's much stronger and 15 pounds heavier this year. He's a team leader and a good receiver, too.

Jermaine Sutton, Wilde Lake, Sr., WR, S, 6-2, 175 -- His 4.38 speed, great hands and exceptional athletic ability make him one of the most dangerous offensive weapons in the county. He has Division I college potential.

Seth Willingham, Wilde Lake, Sr., QB, 6-3, 190 -- Skilled enough to run the option offense or the run-and-shoot. Last season he passed for 716 yards and four touchdowns as Wilde Lake went 12-1 and won the state Class 1A championship. A Baltimore Sun All-County pick.
