SPORT SOCCER

Aaron Wheeler, Patapsco

STATS -- The 6-foot-4, 175-pound senior excelled as a midfielder both on headers and off the dribble. Wheeler scored 11 goals and assisted on seven this season to lead the Patriots to the Baltimore County championship with an 11-1 record. Wheeler scored nine goals and assisted on five during his junior season. SIDELINES -- Wheeler was an unselfish player, starting the season by playing sweeper the first six games, during which the Patriots had two of their four shutouts. As a freshman and sophomore, Wheeler played on the defensive side, anchoring the Patriots to a runner-up finish in the county. Wheeler played basketball for the first two years of high school, but his career ended when he suffered a back injury before the winter of his junior year.
