Player of the Year
Marcus Coker, DeMatha, RB
Despite missing 2 1/2 games with a groin injury, the senior running back easily ran away with the county rushing crown with 1,567 yards and 20 touchdowns. Coker had a game to remember when he rushed for a school record 392 yards against Gilman on Sept. 12. The University of Iowa recruit had three fourth-quarter touchdowns to lift DeMatha to a 24-21 win against Good Counsel on Oct. 9.
James Joseph, McNamara, QB
The senior directed a versatile Mustangs' attack. He threw for 2,200 yards and 18 touchdowns, and also ran for four scores.
Richard Barber, Douglass, QB

Antonio Belt, Forestville, all-purpose
The senior split time between quarterback and wide receiver, throwing for 497 yards and eight touchdowns. He also ran for 414 yards and four touchdowns, had 403 receiving yards and caught five touchdown passes and scored three touchdowns on kick returns.
Ronald Darby, Potomac, all-purpose
The lightning-fast sophomore had nine rushing touchdowns, one receiving touchdown, two kickoff returns and three punt returns for touchdowns. He also accumulated 1,770 total yards of offense.
Darron Black, Flowers, OL
The senior tackle helped pave the way for one of the county's best ground games, including a 200-yard rushing performance on Nov. 7 that ended Wise's eight-game shutout streak.
Arie Kouandjio, DeMatha, OL
The senior tackle was a key component of one of the top offensive lines in the area. He is being recruited by California-Berkeley, Alabama, Tennessee, Miami (Fla.) and New Mexico.
Shane Johnson, DeMatha, OL
The senior guard paved the way for many of DeMatha's running plays. He had nearly 20 scholarship offers, and this week gave a verbal commitment to the University of Pittsburgh.
Isaiah Shelton, Flowers, OL
The senior center played an integral role as the Jaguars piled up more than 2,400 yards rushing this season.
Sam Burrell, Wise, OL
The senior helped pave the way for the Wise rushing attack, opening holes up the middle, and he also scored a touchdown in the Pumas' win against Bowie.
