Whenever Archie Wannamaker reflects on his life, he knows that Rosa Marie Joiner always gave him the best advice. It will always be his view that mother knows best.She's the one who told him he'd someday make something of himself, the one who advised him to go to Mount St. Joseph to get "a decent education."And when Wannamaker wanted to quit playing football as a sophomore to be at her side during a long illness, she insisted that he continue playing.That was five months before she succumbed to cancer.

Offense Player of the YearAaron Thompson, Mount St. Joseph, senior (6-1, 200): The transfer from Forest Park runs a 4.4-second 40-yard dash. With 314 carries, 2,325 yards and 37 touchdowns over 10 games (average of 31.4 carries, 233 yards, 3.7 touchdowns), he was tops among all area running backs. His single-season yardage has him third in the state all-time (behind McDonough's Sherron Gudger, 2,741, 1991, and Kent's Bruce Green, 2,388, presently), and his single-season touchdowns tie him for the area lead with Randallstown's Larry Washington (1990)

It was a night backup quarterbacks usually only get to dream about, but junior Mike Wells lived the moment and top-ranked Mount St. Joseph (2-0) proved it is more than a one-man team.With Lucas Phillips, perhaps the metro area's top quarterback on the sidelines with a head injury, Mount St. Joseph (2-0) rolled over unranked Annapolis, 32-0.Wells guided the Gaels' offense with aplomb and Archie Wannamaker made his job easy. Wannamaker, a 5-foot-8 and 175-pound running back rushed for 231 yards, and three touchdowns on 24 carries.
