Gabriel Ali-El

Poly, running back, senior

A slick runner in the Engineers' option offense, Ali-El (5 feet 9, 189 pounds) missed last season's finale with a shoulder injury — a huge loss after he ran for more than 1,200 yards and also had 400 yards receiving.

Demond Brown

Old Mill, running back, senior

A transfer from Annapolis, Brown accounted for 45 percent of the Panthers offense last season, scoring 15 touchdowns and gaining 1,345 yards on 179 carries. He fits nicely into the spot vacated by co-Offensive Player of the Year Josh Furman.

Navassa Brown

Franklin, athlete, senior

Brown (5-9, 165) has terrific versatility, running for 673 yards and catching 22 passes for 534 yards. He also excels at defensive back, making 60 tackles with seven interceptions, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries last season.

Hunter Goodwin

Gilman, lineman, senior

A stellar run blocker able to move people off the ball, Goodwin has quick feet for 6-5, 290 pounds. Orally committed to Wake Forest, he had about 30 pancake blocks last season for the MIAA A conference champs.

Ed Hunt

Arundel, lineman, senior

Hunt (6-4, 270) is a ferocious, physical and technically sharp right tackle. He was cited for having the top technique at a handful of camps this summer. Monmouth has offered but with his 4.3 GPA, he's looking at Harvard, too.

Darius Jennings

Gilman, quarterback, senior

Rated No. 2 in the nation as an athlete by scout.com, the All-Metro first teamer set a school-record with 2,028 yards rushing last season as a quarterback. Jennings (6-0, 180 pounds) ran for 25 touchdowns and passed for 10. Among his top ten colleges: Maryland, Penn State and Ohio State.
