WaPo Coaches Football Rankings, WaPo All Met and All Gazette teams

All-star teams and polls produced by newspapers very rarely reflect the relative merit of the players. No one (or even group of people) can observe and evaluate all of the games in the DMV area. Frankly, the decisions frequently seem to reflect the publication’s efforts to sell more papers. That said they seem to matter to the boys; so here are the final rankings by a WaPo coach and  the Bears who were mentioned in the two big lists:

WaPo Coaches Poll

Charles Harley of Forestville ranked the Bears #13 in his poll; he listed the Bears several time during the season. Particularly enjoyable is that the next column in this collective ranking is written by Pat Cilento of Bullis; he certainly enjoys seeing his IAC rival getting such good publicity!

WaPo All Met 

Honorable Mention, running back, Myles Allen

[to put the Bears’ win over McNamara in context, two of their players recognized by the WaPo; 1st team OL, Damian Price; 2nd team WR Jordan Crockett.]


Gazette All Mo Co 

Honorable Mention, running back, Myles Allen

offensive line, Obai Kamara

[again to reinforce the above point, players from Bullis received “honors” higher in their order, even though they lost that game!]
