What Does It Take to Be an All-Met?
The Washington Post's scholastic sports staff asked, and All-Mets answered:
Mike Grossman, C.T. Fisher, Mike Flanagan and Brian Casey

Player of the Year / Coach of the Year

PLAYER OF THE YEAR
A Mike Grossman | Landon » Sr.
An offensive threat every time he had the ball, Grossman totaled 40 goals and 29 assists and had one of each in the Interstate Athletic Conference title game, which Landon won to capture its first outright IAC championship since 2004. Will play for Princeton.
» Favorite piece of equipment: His stick
The model Grossman uses is a Warrior Evolution Pro, and he said he “probably went through three or four” this season. “I sort of rotate until I find the right one and pray it doesn’t break,” he said. “I get pretty superstitious, as I think most people do. If something goes wrong, if I throw the ball away or something, I might change [sticks].

COACH OF THE YEAR
Josh Hatmaker | Glenelg
A year after guiding the Gladiators to their first state championship, Hatmaker’s composure and confidence could be seen in his players as they rallied in the second half of the Maryland 2A/1A title game to complete an undefeated season.
