North Carroll boys soccer coach Ed Powelson loves his job. That's not unusual.What might be unusual is that he feels that way after 32 years.Powelson played soccer at Fairmont (W.Va.) State College. When he began his teaching career, he turned to coaching.He enjoyed it right away, and that feeling has remained. And, as long as that feeling stays, so will he."The bottom line is I enjoy coaching. I enjoy the kids," said Powelson, whose daughter, Denean, guides the North Carroll field hockey team.

Denean Powelson had fond memories of the field hocke glory days at North Carroll in the mid-1980s and refused to believe the school could not return to those high standards.With those ideals, Powelson gave up officiating the game to accept the challenge of rebuilding the Panthers' program, one that had sagged to a 3-9 record last season.She set no timetable, but most people thought it might take a couple of years. Make that one year.Powelson, 24, had a dream season for a first-year coach, knocking off three defending state-champion teams on the way to an 8-4-2 record and the Class 2A, Region I final.

North Carroll coach Ed Powelson doesn't have a complicated formula for improving on his Panthers' 4-7-0 record of last season."We're just going to have to get off the floor and get after some people," Powelson said.The formula has been a trademark of the Panthers in Powelson's first 32 years, and he's not about to change things. One thing for sure, the Panthers will keep coming at opponents until the final whistle.It starts with senior co-captains Mike Hensley and Art Crouse -- two of only six seniors on the squad.

Player of the YearRobbie Green, Francis Scott Key, senior, forward: Every Key opponent arrived with the same game plan -- shut down Green. Few could do it. Green closed out a stellar high school career with 14 goals and four assists to lead the county in scoring for a second straight year. Last season, a lot of the attention was drawn on other Key forwards, opening up plenty of chances for Green. This year, he was the primary focus of opposing team's defenses and he responded with great ball skills, composure and an uncanny ability to finish off scoring chances.

The numbers, as staggering as they are, have never been a big thing with former North Carroll boys soccer coach Ed Powelson.He'll discuss them -- only when urged -- and when he does, everything is mostly rounded off to his best estimations. He would much rather talk about the players that have come and gone, his longtime assistant, Charlie Hook, and how the game of soccer has changed in the 34 years he coached at North Carroll."When I first came here, the kids played with steel toes in their shoes.
