William Stallworth of Tulare makes history for being named State Grid-Hoop Player of the Year for the second straight year. We also choose four others on first team, five on second team, five on third team and 40 for special mention.
There's something special about grid-hoop athletes since few sports demand more all-around athleticism than football and basketball. It is tough to perform at a high level in one sport at a large school, let alone two, but the following athletes did it at California schools during the 2011-12 school year.
There has been a major decrease in the sheer amount of grid-hoop standouts across the state since our initial all-state teams were chosen for the 1986-87 school year, but there were still plenty of talented football-basketball combo players to choose from.
Leading the way for the second consecutive year is senior guard/wide receiver William Stallworth of Tulare Union, the 2011-12 ESPNHS Cal-Hi Sports Grid-Hoop Player of the Year. Last year, Stallworth became only the second CIF Central Section athlete to earn the honor since 1979-80, joining 2005-06 honoree David Ausberry of Lemoore.

Here is a closer look at the 12 players chosen first team offense:
WR Deontay Greenberry (Washington, Easton) 6-3, 190, Sr.
The ESPNHS Cal-Hi Sports Mr. Football State Player of the Year had a remarkable season with state record totals of 33 touchdown catches and 2,165 yards. Greenberry also caught 109 passes, played a ball-hawking brand of defense in the secondary and led Washington (14-0) to the CIF Division III state bowl championship. Greenberry has committed to Notre Dame.
WR Darreus Rogers (Carson) 6-2, 195, Sr.
With a verbal to USC before the season even started, this standout wideout started and ended in big-time fashion despite being the focal point for the opposition. He opened with 12 catches for 255 yards and three scores in a win over Mater Dei and then caught 12 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to Long Beach Poly. After ending with 13 catches for 251 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to Narbonne, Rogers finished with 64 catches for 1,251 yards and eight touchdowns.
