Joseph BonanniSt. Mary's, defense // An All-Metro selection last year, Bonanni will be responsible for covering the best opposing offensive player in every game. The senior will attend Ohio State next season.
Ben CoheeCatonsville, attack // The senior was nearly impossible to contain last season, as he netted 32 goals and handed out 49 assists. Teams will find it difficult to match up with Cohee and fellow dynamic forward Matt Reymann.
Joe CummingsLoyola, attack // Not to be overshadowed by teammate Steele Stanwick, Cummings proved that he can be just as dangerous. Lauded by coach Jack Crawford for his work ethic, the senior had 33 goals and 12 assists last year. He will attend Maryland in the fall.
Tyler FioritoMcDonogh, goal // Rival coaches call Fiorito the best goalie in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association, and for good reason. Last season the senior helped to lead the Eagles to the MIAA A Conference semifinals. Fiorito, who will attend Princeton in the fall, is one of four seniors on the under-19 national team.
Caleb HoltBroadneck, attack-midfield // Holt, a senior, will have to be a leader on a team with more than half the roster being underclassmen. Holt netted 24 goals and passed out 19 assists last season.
Eric KeppelerDulaney, midfield // A 2007 All-America selection, the Notre Dame-bound Keppeler may be the best player on the best team in Baltimore County. The senior had 27 goals and 23 assists last season and will try to help Dulaney win its first state title since 2005.
Ben LoveWinters Mill, attack // The junior will have to score early and often for a team that returns just two of its starters from last season's undefeated squad. Love had 44 goals and 15 assists last year - including the game-winner in a 7-6 victory over Parkside in the Class 2A-1A state championship.
Luke RaabFallston, attack // The senior was crucial to the Cougars' run to the Class 3A-2A title game last season, and he'll look to lead the team to another deep run. Last season he scored 34 goals and had 17 assists.
Jon SelfridgeGlenelg, goal // Selfridge is a big-time goalie who steps up at key moments. The senior made 10 of his 15 saves in the fourth quarter of the Class 3A-2A title game last season - a Glenelg 6-3 victory - and is regarded as the best goalie in Howard County.
Steele StanwickLoyola, attack // The senior is regarded as the best player in the area. Headed to the University of Virginia next fall, Stanwick has 161 points over his Loyola career. He's also on the under-19 national team.
