Carroll County Snapshots

October 12, 2005



Ryan Hash, South Carroll

STATS -- A reserve last season, Hash has come into his own this year. Going into last weekend, the senior had rushed for eight touchdowns in his previous three games, including three against South Hagerstown and two each against Winters Mill and Century. In the latter two games, he also ran for 110 and 160 yards, respectively, putting himself among the rushing leaders in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League's Piedmont Conference.

SIDELINES -- Coach Butch Schaffer calls Hash one of the hardest workers on the team, and a "throwback football player." At 5 feet 10, 180 pounds, the second-year varsity player possesses a combination of power and speed that helps him to break tackles at the line, then outrun defenders in the secondary. Also starting at linebacker and participating on special teams, Hash is on the field for just about every play. He also plays lacrosse.



Brittany Eger, Century

STATS -- In her senior season, Eger continues to add to her reputation as one of the most potent scoring threats in the county. She began the season by scoring all of her team's goals in a 3-0 win over Walkersville, then went on to score the game-winner in overtime against Winters Mill. Her efforts have placed her among the county's scoring leaders, and helped the Knights shake off some early rust to climb back into the thick of the county race.

SIDELINES -- After playing a supporting role to All-Metro teammates Kelly Kasper and Lauren Schwarzmann during her freshman and sophomore years - when the Knights captured back-to-back state titles - Eger has taken on a leadership role as a senior. Second-year coach Sara Figuly calls her forward a "quiet leader" who "leads by example."
