"I think he's lived up to [the hype]," said Alan Eberhart, who recently resigned as Glendale's coach. "He's deserving. In the league meetings, they're not even calling him Michael Davis, they're just calling him Michael now. He's a legitimate first-team guy."
A first-team defensive lineman nod went to senior Kevin Vega.
"He's got this motor that just doesn't stop, he's always intense," Eberhart said. "He's a kid that just plays hard all the time. He's a legitimate offensive and defensive lineman."
On the second team, senior running back Alex Yoon picked up a skill-position nod.
"Our best player didn't make first team, Alex Yoon, because he was hurt a game and a half," Eberhart said. "He can run and catch the ball. …He did everything for us, but he also played a game with a really bad ankle and we sat him out a game and a half. In our league, you better play all the games [to get all-league]. You're not going to get enough votes if you don't have the stats."
Senior Gagik Gabrielyan garnered a second-team offensive lineman nod.
"He played every snap, we didn't have a second-string center," Eberhart said. "He's just a very solid, functional offensive lineman. But it's rare that an offensive lineman [plays] every single snap all year. He kind of learned how to play and got better and better and really was the mainstay of our offensive line."
Hoover's lone first-team nod went to senior running back Luke Tabayoyong, who rushed for 847 yards in 164 carries and scored six rushing touchdowns and one receiving.
"He's a good kid, he definitely deserved to be on there," said Hoover Coach Andrew Policky, whose team finished 0-10, 0-7. "He worked really hard and he had a pretty good season. He had a nice little stretch there at the end of the season where he played well in the last few games. I was happy to see him get some recognition for that."
Offensive honorable mention went to Crescenta Valley senior lineman Nathan Sarreal, Glendale senior quarterback Evan Norton and Hoover junior lineman Jeffrey Truong, while defensive honorable mentions were awarded to Crescenta Valley senior defensive back Kevin Cooper, Glendale senior linebacker James Recinos and Hoover senior defensive lineman Thomas Bauw.
Burroughs High running back Zander Anding was the player of the year.
