BRUNSWICK, Md. - Mark Mitchell is all for setting goals, as long as they're set high.
So when mapping out the plan for his Brunswick football team this year, Mitchell looked back at his 1998 team - and decided he may have set the goals for that team too low.
"The big goal for us last year was to make the playoffs, which we did," Mitchell said. "We had a good year, and it was like, 'All right, we made the playoffs. Yeah. Now we have to play.'

"I think I made a mistake by making that our goal last year."
While the Railroaders reached the goal they set at the beginning of that year, a quarterfinal loss to Cambridge-South Dorchester brought that season of achievement to a screeching halt.
