BOYS

SPORT FOOTBALL

Jake Bohn, Mount St. Joseph

STATS -- Bohn has played running back, linebacker, safety and on special teams. A junior who has played football for 10 years, he is the Gaels' top tackler. He has rushed for six touchdowns, caught a pass for another score and has an interception for a touchdown - all while competing in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, widely considered Maryland's best league.

SIDELINES -- Bohn, who also wrestles and plays lacrosse, has a 3.9 grade point average. Football coach Chip Armstrong calls him "a throwback who never wants to come off the field." A second-team All-Metro pick as a wrestler last year, Bohn won the MIAA and private schools state titles at 171 pounds. He also volunteers in his community, Gamber, as an announcer at youth league football games.

GIRLS

SPORT VOLLEYBALL

Stephanie Harris, Forest Park

STATS -- A multitalented hitter for the Foresters' volleyball team, the 5-foot-8 Harris also plays basketball and badminton and runs indoor and outdoor track. Although the junior concentrates on track during the winter, she is happy to fill in when needed on the basketball team. A sprinter whose best event is the 200-meter dash, she competed at nationals last summer and plans to run at the Penn Relays in the spring.

SIDELINES -- A first lieutenant in the school's ROTC program, Harris had considered a career in the military until two Forest Park alums were killed recently in Iraq. Now she is thinking about culinary school. Harris, who gets A's and B's in her classes, also found time to join the debate team this fall. "I keep myself busy so I can stay out of trouble. So far, that has worked," said Harris, 16.
