Stoutenborough, McDonald headed for Barton

April 04, 1996|By Rick Belz | Rick Belz,SUN STAFF

Dan Stoutenborough of Oakland Mills and Mike McDonald of Centennial have signed to play soccer on scholarships at Barton College in North Carolina.

The two have been teammates on the Columbia Rangers club team.

Stoutenborough, 6 feet and 150 pounds, captained the Scorpions to a state Class 2A championship in 1994.

He is a two-time state Olympic Development selection and has played on club teams that have won four state cup titles.

McDonald, 5-8 and 130, played on three Class 3A state championship teams at Centennial.

Last season Centennial Barton's coach. "The Columbia area has a rich tradition of successful school and club teams, and these two guys will come to us with outstanding backgrounds. I was able to see them both play several games for the Columbia Rangers in the Capital Cup in Northern Virginia at Thanksgiving and in the Raleigh Shootout in December.

"Daniel is a very versatile player, and with his height and talent in the air I hope that he will play the center of midfield or defense for us. He is likely to be a player we will target on restarts and should give us a real presence as a ball-winner.

"Mike has outstanding quickness and could play any number of positions for us, including outside midfield or marking back. He plays with great intensity every second he is on the field."

Barton competes at the NCAA Division II level in the 11-member Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference (CVAC). The Bulldogs were 9-7-1 a year ago and have shared two regular-season championships in the past five years. Atholton's Jim Albert was presented with the Maryland Scholastic Football Coaches Association's John W. Voight Assistant Coach of the Year Award last week at the University of Maryland.

Albert was one of four coaches with at least 20 years of service to receive the award.

He has been an assistant football coach at Atholton for 21 years. He also coached two years at Howard and one at Towson State.

Howard has an opening for a varsity head football coach.

Last year's head coach, Joe Thomas, is leaving after one year to join the faculty at Long Reach when that new school opens next fall. He will be the assistant football and wrestling coach there, as well as girls outdoor track coach.

Howard's football team was 5-5 overall and 2-5 in the league last season.
