Player of the Year

P CHRIS CRUM, Severna Park, Sr.

Crum did not lose a game as a high school pitcher, finishing his career 15-0. Eight of those wins came this season, as Crum amassed a 1.40 ERA. He also batted .470, with four home runs and 23 RBI. He hit the game-winning homer in the 11th inning of the Anne Arundel County title game and helped Severna Park win the 3A state title. He will play next season for Virginia Tech.

Coach of the Year

GARY GUBBINGS, Broadneck

Gubbings led Broadneck to a winning record despite the team's inexperienced and injury-plagued roster. The Bruins won their first five games of the season, surprising Anne Arundel County coaches. "He's always kept us focused and positive," catcher Nick Espinosa said during the season. "He makes sure that we've got a good outlook on everything."
