BOYS BASKETBALL

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Andrew Engel

Old Mill

A three-year starter, the 6-foot-2 senior point guard was the key player in the No. 9 Patriots' second straight run to the Class 4A state semifinals, as well as county and regional titles.

Engel led Old Mill in scoring (14.9 points), assists (4.5) and steals (66) in addition to averaging 3.5 rebounds and blocking 22 shots. Named to the Charm City Challenge, Engel shot 54 percent from the field, 35 percent from three-point range and 87 percent from the line.

Old Mill was 47-7 in two seasons with Engel at point guard.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Greg Smith

Old Mill

After graduating eight seniors, three of them starters, from last year's team, Smith built another county and regional champion around three players and set school records for consecutive wins (16) and most wins in a season (24-3) to repeat as county Coach of the Year.

Smith, who is 98-50 (.662) over six seasons, emphasized pressure defense and an up-tempo offense. Old Mill was the only county boys team to advance to the state tournament this season, and only the third since 1996 to repeat as county champs.
