Westminster senior faceoff midfielder Ryan Finch has been an unselfish catalyst for the Owls all season, as demonstrated in victories over league rivals Century and North Carroll that secured the Carroll County championship last week.

In an 11-3 rout of Century, Finch assisted on three goals and won 10 of 13 faceoffs. Finch followed that up by taking 15 of 19 faceoffs in a 15-10 win over North Carroll, during which he assisted on eight goals. Finch raised his season totals to 26 goals and 35 assists, and increased his success ratio on faceoffs to 80 percent.

A versatile athlete, Finch was an all-purpose All-Metro player on last fall's Class 3A state runner-up Owls football team, which ended the year with a 12-2 record and as The Sun's No. 2-ranked team. Finch scored a team-high 27 touchdowns, had 1,267 rushing yards and had 804 receiving yards.

Others considered: Kevin Corcoran, Catonsville, lacrosse; Quentin James, Reservoir, track; Jon Selfridge, Glenelg, lacrosse.
