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.
