BOYS PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Bobby Griebe

Boys' Latin

He was only a second-year varsity starter, but he handled the pressure of being an offensive leader and the the son of a national Hall of Fame player by the same name with aplomb. A dangerous player as a feeder and scorer, Griebe's 39 goals more than doubled last year's total of 18, and he also assisted on 53 goals, The Towson University-bound attackman executed with poise and patience, often drawing the opposition's No. 1 defender.

BOYS COACH OF THE YEAR

Bob Shriver

Boys' Latin

The Lakers defeated Loyola, 12-7, for Shriver's fifth title in his 23-year tenure at the school. And he did it with a team that got much of its production from underclassmen. The Lakers (20-2) did it with a defense that allowed fewer than seven goals a game.

FIRST TEAM

Joe Benson

McDonogh

Benson scored 79 goals and assisted on 38 others. In heading off to Johns Hopkins, Benson will play alongside his brother, Bobby, a former All-Metro Player of the Year. The Eagles were MIAA semfinalists this season. Benson, a 6-foot-5, 210-pounder, is a three-sport athlete.

Gentry Fitzpatrick

Gilman

The 5-8, 190-pound junior was the stabilizing force on a team that is loaded with underclassmen, particularly on defense. His leadership helped sophomore goalie Chad Zimmerman to develop behind him, and others, such as Tap Kolken, to mature alongside him.

Evan Gallant

Loyola

Bound for Gettysburg College to play lacrosse, Gallant finished the year with 50 goals and 18 assists. He had six goals and two assists in a win over Georgetown Prep, a team ranked No. 3 nationally at the time. An excellent finisher, Gallant scored seven goals against St. Mary's.

Hayward Howard

St. Paul's

A tireless defender on a team that struggled this season, Howard rarely came off of the field. The 5-foot-10, 195-pounder is called "a fierce leader," by coach Mitch Whiteley. Howard, who is headed to North Carolina, was called upon to cover the opposing team's best offensive threat, played the wing on faceoffs and was aggressive on ground balls.

Kevin Huntley

Calvert Hall

Although just a sophomore, Huntley emerged as the Cardinals' most productive player. Of his 48 goals, 44 were scored in MIAA A Conference play, and of his 37 assists, 34 came against league teams. Huntley had four goals and four assists against St. Paul's and four goals and three assists against St. Mary's.

Dan Kallaugher

McDonogh

The Yale-bound midfielder produced 21 goals and 14 assists while handling duties as the Eagles' faceoff specialist. He won nine of 10 faceoffs in a win over Calvert Hall and scored four goals in an 8-7 MIAA A Conference tournament first-round loss to Boys' Latin.

Evan Kay

Friends

The third-year starter led his team with 33 goals and 15 assists. Kay is headed for Bridgeton Academy prep school in Maine. He had two goals and three assists in a victory over two-time MIAA B Conference champ Spalding, and six goals against St. Mary's. "He can score as a lefty or a righty and is a determined player," said Friends coach Rich Seiler.

Matt Mindel

Dulaney

The three-sport athlete, who is considering Delaware or Maryland, has a brilliant combination of speed, skill and power. Mindel scored 26 goals and assisted on 15. As a faceoff specialist, he won 151 of 209 faceoffs (72 percent). He had three goals to help Dulaney win its third straight state title in triple overtime over Severna Park.

Brendan Mundorf

Mount St. Joseph

Voted the team's Most Valuable Player at the season's end, Mundorf produced 58 goals and 26 assists in his third year as a starter. The UMBC-bound attackman led the Gaels to their highest ranking ever at No. 3. Among Mundorf's best games was a seven-goal effort against C. Milton Wright.

Mike Obringer

Dulaney

The West Point-bound senior capped his illustrious career with his game-winning fifth goal in double overtime of a 16-15, 4A-3A state championship win over Severna Park. The three-year varsity player ended the year with 61 goals and 46 assists, and for his career had 157 goals and 141 assists.

Matt Pinto

Loyola

The Johns Hopkins-bound senior improved on his second-team All-Metro season by being the most dominant individual defender in the MIAA A Conference. In his best games, he shut out Scott Falatach of St. Mary's and Newton Gentry of Mount St. Joseph. Pinto is an excellent take-away artist.

Austin Rodgers

Loyola

The Rutgers-bound Rodgers finished the year with 45 goals and 47 assists for the MIAA A Conference runner-up. His season began with a three-goal, five-assist performance against Landon of Montgomery County, the nation's No. 1-ranked team. For his career, Rodgers has 65 goals and 74 assists.

Trey Sheain

Boys' Latin

The second-year starter emerged with several big games for the Lakers, allowing an average of fewer than seven goals against MIAA A Conference competition and only slightly more than six against the Lakers' overall schedule. Sheain had 208 saves.
