This is Coach Albert Oni's first year at The Severn School.  He had no idea what he had in senior Morgan Kontor.

"Once pre-season started, I saw what skills she had:, said Coach.  Morgan has played four year on the varsity and she remembers day one like it was day one.

"It was really intimidating", says Morgan.

"I've coached a lot of team, but I've never seen someone who is so strong on the ball and intelligent," says a beaming Coach Oni.

Morgan knows by being team captain, she hold responsibility on and off the field.  Coach calls her a perfect team player making everyone of her teammates better.

Maybe the highest compliment we've heard since doing these Bel Air Honda Student Athlete of the Week profiles is hearing for a coach who changed his philosophy because of one player.  And when he did, Morgan scored five goals in one game. 

Coach said, "I've never had a player as potent for putting the ball in the net."

And she is pretty potent at scoring "A"s on tests.

Morgan says, "I'm taking a pretty heavy load and plan on attending Carnegie Mellon."

Straight A's, straight to the goal and a coach who straight out says, Morgan Kontor should be and is the Bel Air Honda Student Athlete of the Week.
