VirginiaPreps.com AAA All-State team

A fantastic 2010 season concluded with the Battlefield Bobcats and the Phoebus Phantoms capturing the Division Six and Division Five respective state championships at Scott Stadium on the University of Virginia campus.

Included in all of the outstanding team performances this season were some incredible individual efforts and with the release of the 2010 VirginiaPreps.com AAA All-State Team, we hope to honor as many of those as we can.

Like with our all-region teams, we choose to name only twelve honorees on both sides of the ball with four specialists and two coaches comprising the entirety of our roster as we opt for exclusivity rather than inclusion in hopes of keeping the team limited only to the extremely special performances from the year.

As always, the offense will include two running backs, wide receivers, tackles and guards with one player named at quarterback, tight end, center and athlete. The defense (using a traditional high school 4-4 alignment) will include four linemen, four linebackers, three defensive backs and one athlete. In the specialists category, we name one kicker, one punter and two returners.

Of special note is that rather than using the "athlete" position as a spot to name a multi-purpose versatile player, we use it more as a "catch-all" position where we include a player who we felt had to be honored.

With that, VirginiaPreps.com proudly presents the 2010 AAA All-State Team...
