Brad Howard, Forest Park, Sr. -- All-Extra selection has a "long, straight drive that's just deadly," Forest Park Coach Babette Overman said. "We're hoping by the time districts roll around that he's breaking the 70s barrier." Howard has improved confidence in his short game after working on it consistently this summer.

Jake Engle, Stonewall Jackson, Sr. -- All-Extra pick averaged in the mid-70s last year and began this season with a third-place finish at the 12-team Bryan Gunter tournament in Winchester. A consistent all-around golfer who intends to play in college.

Daniel Kefale, Osbourn Park, Sr. -- The Virginia State Golf Association Junior Amateur champion is trying to become the first Prince William golfer since Hylton's Matt Krauss in 1996 to win a Virginia AAA individual title. Two-time All-Extra golfer of the year.

Nathan Manis, Osbourn, Sr. -- Two-time All-Extra shot a 1-under par 71 in a district tournament at Forest Greens and even-par in a match against Forest Park to stake a claim as perhaps the area's top individual golfer behind Kefale. "He has the total game . . . and he is very capable of breaking 70," new Osbourn coach Barry Sudduth said.

Nathan Rycroft, Woodbridge, Sr. -- Returning All-Extra selection, one of the top golfers in the Cardinal District, shot a career-best 69 last season. "He is a serious golfer and he's got a complete game," Stonewall Jackson Coach Hilton Martin said.
