COLLEGE PARK -- After the national anthem before River Hill's Class 3A state semifinal against ninth-ranked Mervo last night, Daniel Hostetler looked into the Comcast Center stands, extended his right leg in the direction of Hawks fans a la Chuck Berry and played air guitar. "I was just so hyped, so pumped up," said the 6-foot-2 River Hill forward. "And the crowd, man, really got me going." From there, Hostetler and fellow senior Tommy Brenton proceeded to rock and roll. Brenton scored 30 points, much of it on 16-for-20 free-throw shooting, grabbed 10 rebounds, blocked four shots and had three steals and assists each, and Hostetler scored 20 points, grabbed six rebounds and also had three steals and assists each in a 62-53 victory over the Mustangs (18-8)

College Park -- Tommy Brenton said that every time he made a free throw, he thought to himself, "If I keep making them, we're going to win a state title." River Hill's Brenton was right, as his state-record, 19-for-20 performance from the line led the Hawks to the Class 3A state title over Bethesda-Chevy Chase, 60-51, at Comcast Center yesterday. Every time B-CC made a run in the second half, it seemed as if Brenton was back on the line to cut it short. It was River Hill's first state crown in its first appearance in the states and Howard County's second straight after Long Reach won last year's 3A final, and the county's seventh overall.

Tommy Brenton acknowledges he felt nervous the last time he took the floor at Comcast Center. It was the spring of 2007, and the senior forward had led his River Hill basketball team to the Class 3A state championship game. With a Maryland grad and "big Terps basketball fan" for a father, Brenton grew up dreaming of the day he'd play on the same court where he watched Gary Williams-coached teams grind out victories. On Friday, more than five-and-a-half years after leading the Hawks to their first boys basketball state title, Brenton will make his long-awaited return to Comcast Center, only this time the anxiety of a high school senior will be replaced by the confidence of a 23-year-old graduate student.

To Stony Brook fans, Tommy Brenton is an irreplaceable forward almost maniacally obsessed with winning. To supporters of other America East schools, Brenton's like an 80's-era pro wrestling heel, relishing their taunting signage and thriving on their verbal barbs. And to at least one former assistant coach in the conference, Brenton is simply "a pain in the a--" to play against. “I think that's a great sign of respect if they hate playing against me, but [would] love having me on their team,” said Brenton, the reigning America East Defensive Player of the Year.

When he was a freshman point guard for River Hill's junior varsity team, Tommy Brenton never imagined how much of a hassle it would be to simply get into a small car. For the 6-foot-4 do-everything senior, a first-team All-County selection last season, it's now a process: Anybody in the back seat has to slide over and the front seat moves all the way back. "It's tough. I'm not liking some of the small cars my friends drive," said a smiling Brenton, who grew 7 inches since the days when he was a 5-foot-9 ninth-grader.
