WRESTLER OF THE YEAR

Bubby Graham

Annapolis

The Panthers' 152-pound junior swept county, regional and state competition for a second straight year, capping his 32-0 season with a 5-2 decision over Broadneck senior Abe Hunter in the Class 4A-3A championship bout. Strong and calculating on the mat, Graham always stayed a move ahead of his opponents to dominate the weight class. On the All-Metro team for a second straight year, he has won 61 straight matches and has an 85-8 mark in three seasons.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Paul Joyce

Severna Park

A tough early-season schedule paid off later, as the No. 9 Falcons (10-4) won their last nine matches and captured the Class 4A-3A East regional title for the first time in 33 years. Joyce asked a lot from his team and they responded with dedicated work in the practice room. The Falcons qualified nine wrestlers to the state tournament, with 171-pound sophomore Billy Nichols' runner-up effort the team's highlight. Joyce was equally proud of the fact that each of his starting wrestlers had a 3.2 grade point average or better.
