Fall All-metro Varsity


December 13, 2006|By LEM SATTERFIELD


Alex Boddiford

Loyola, lineman

The three-year starter cleared the way for an offense that generated more than 3,100 yards. The 6-foot-4, 270-pound senior team captain was effective both as a run and pass blocker, serving a catalyst for quarterback Leon Kinnard's 11 passing touchdowns and 11 rushing touchdowns.

Boddiford also played well defensively, with five tackles behind the line of scrimmage, a sack and a safety. Navy, Army, Richmond and William & Mary have expressed interest.

Travis Brown

Havre de Grace, wide receiver

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound speedster made 59 receptions for 1,147 yards and 11 touchdowns in leading the Warriors to the Class 1A North regional title and a No. 15 area ranking.

Also a defensive back who had six interceptions, the senior had perhaps his best overall game in the Warriors' 22-15 upset of then-No. 11 New Town, during which he caught a 39-yard touchdown pass, intercepted three passes and recovered an onside kick.

Zach Brown

Wilde Lake, running back

After 10 regular-season games, Brown led the area with 1,537 yards and 20 touchdowns, earning Howard County Offensive Player of the Year honors. Brown, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound senior who runs a 4.51-second 40-yard dash, had one of his best games in a victory over last year's county co-champion Long Reach, when he rushed for 198 yards, scored twice and made 12 tackles.

Brown helped Wilde Lake win its last six games to go 8-2, but it missed the Class 3A East regional playoffs. He also is a first-team All-Metro selection in outdoor track and wrestling.

Rob Ciancaglini

Broadneck, lineman

The three-year starter was a key reason the Bruins bounced back from a 4-6 season in 2005. Ciancaglini's focus and leadership as the fifth-ranked Bruins' center helped Broadneck go 11-2 and win the Class 4A East regional title.

Ciancaglini, a 6-foot-1, 225-pound senior, was voted by the Annapolis Touchdown Club as the winner of the Al Laramore Award, which is bestowed upon Anne Arundel County's best lineman. He also throws the shot put in indoor track and plays lacrosse.

Les Delmont

Hereford, lineman

The 6-foot-5, 330-pound senior was an imposing and unflappable centerpiece for the 11th-ranked Bulls, who put together a 10-game winning streak en route to winning their eighth Baltimore County 2A-1A League title and reaching the 2A North region championship game.

Delmont made 12 pancake blocks and gave up only two sacks throughout the season. Delmont has been offered a full scholarship to West Virginia Tech.

Jared Jorgensen

McDonogh, quarterback

The senior left-hander took the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference by storm in his first starting season. Jorgensen, 6 feet 2 and 180 pounds, completed 153 of 265 passes with 18 touchdowns, and Andrew Feinberg (68 receptions, 987 yards, 11 touchdowns) was his favorite target among the Eagles' four wide receivers.

Jorgensen found Feinberg for an 18-yard scoring pass to defeat league rival Gilman, 22-16, to forge a three-way tie for the MIAA A Conference title. Jorgensen is interested in Towson, Lafayette, William & Mary and Holy Cross.


Chris McDermott

Broadneck, kicker

If the game is on the line, Bruins coach Jeff Herrick has no reservations about turning to McDermott. The senior made 12 field goals, with a long of 37 yards, to tie the state record for most field goals in a season.

The record was established by Urbana's Josh Brown in 1999 and equaled by McDermott and Arundel's Colin Blugis this season. McDermott set a county regular-season record with 11 field goals.

Scott Noble

Franklin, running back

Named The Sun's Baltimore County Offensive Player of the Year, Noble rushed for 1,765 yards and 29 touchdowns to lead the Indians (10-3) to their best season since 1994, when Franklin qualified for the state quarterfinals. In a 37-36 overtime victory over three-time county 4A-3A champion Perry Hall, Noble rushed for 202 yards and four touchdowns and made 12 tackles as a linebacker to end the Gators' 20-game winning streak against league rivals.

Noble, a 6-foot, 200-pound senior, also scored the game-winning touchdown in a 7-6 victory over then-No. 2 City in the Class 3A North regional final.

Zach Robinson

River Hill, lineman

The Hawks' top offensive lineman, Robinson, a left tackle, anchored a balanced offense that gained more than 4,000 total yards. Behind Robinson, Daniel Hostetler passed for more than 1,000 yards, and running backs Zach Martin and Michael Campanaro rushed for nearly 2,500 yards and more than 30 touchdowns.

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound senior is getting looks from a number of Ivy League and Patriot League programs.

Dajuan Smith

Edmondson, lineman

The 6-foot, 290-pound two-way tackle anchored a balanced offense in which quarterback Carroll Washington had 10 passing and six rushing touchdowns, and running back Tariq Jones, rushed for 1,951 yards and 16 touchdowns.
