The only blemish was a strange loss in the season opener almost in the middle of the night (due to weather delays) in Texas, but in the end it’s another top finish for the nation’s all-time best football program.

De La Salle and Narbonne both pocket two choices with Gauchos’ Troy Williams getting coveted quarterback position. We also go with Mater Dei’s Thomas Duarte as a receiver to free up extra slot for multi-purpose player.
Linebacker for the Spartans also turned heads on special teams and made big plays in the last three CIF Open Division state bowl games. He’s the fourth State Player of the Year from the school.
With new regional bowl format, suspense for this selection has become obsolete. Still, we’ll continue to make it official since our list of honorees extends back to 1891.
