December 19, 2012
Another outstanding year of high school football is behind us and what better way was there to wrap up the season than to have four undefeated teams battle for the Division Five and Division Six state championships on the turf at Scott Stadium.
Neither game disappointed as the outcome of the Lake Taylor versus Stone Bridge and L.C. Bird versus Ocean Lakes games hung in the balance until the game's final minutes.
As would seem likely, the four title game programs lead the way on the 2012 VirginiaPreps.com All-State team as well. Division Six state champion L.C. Bird led the way with four players honored on the first team while runners-up Ocean Lakes placed three on the first team roster. Division Five state champion Lake Taylor had the most players selected overall with a total of six earning either first or second team honors while runners-up Stone Bridge put two on the first team and two on the second.
In total, 32 programs are represented in one way, shape or form on either the first or second team with eight schools housing multiple first teamers and thirteen teams placing multipler players on the first or second team roster.
For those unfamilar with how the team is selected, the VirginiaPreps.com staffers discuss the possible candidates and limit the team to twelve players on offense -- five offensive linemen, two running backs and wide receivers and one player at quarterback, tight end and athlete, a spot that we use as a catch-all to reward a player who we felt had to be included.
On the defensive side of the ball, we also reserve twelve positions -- four linemen, four linebackers, three defensive backs and one athlete spot.
Additionally, the roster will include a punter, kicker and two return men.
The only other constraint put into place is that we will not name a player in more than one spot outside of the fact that we choose Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year.
