WRESTLER OF THE YEAR

Zach Brown

Wilde Lake

The 215-pound senior proved to be in a class of his own in going 29-0 this season to capture his first Class 4A-3A state championship.

Brown was most dominant when it counted the most. He had six pins, four technical falls and a major decision among his 12 wins in capturing his second county title, third regional crown and first state title after a runner-up finish last season.

Brown won the state title with a 16-4 major decision over North Carroll's Jason Thomen that characterized his strong season. Strong, athletic and fundamentally sound, Brown finished the season with 17 pins and ends his career as Wilde Lake's all-time wins leader with a 121-12 mark.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Scott Delpo

Glenelg

The first-year coach, who guided Franklin to a state title in 1999, got the most out of a talented group, leading the Gladiators to a 14-0 regular season, their first Howard County championship and an appearance in the Class 2A-1A state dual meet tournament.

Delpo had six wrestlers qualify and then all place at the state tournament, getting runner-up finishes from juniors Brian Marcoux, Chris Stinnett and Danny Bichner. With 11 of his starters back next season, look for the Gladiators to enjoy continued success.
