COACH OF THE YEAR: Minoso Rodgers, Ballou

Few expected a championship from the Knights this season, especially after a 2-3 start, but Rodgers worked some magic in his first year as head coach. Ballou (9-4) won seven of its final eight games, including a 39-28 upset of Friendship Collegiate—where Rodgers had been an assistant for eight years—in the DCSAA Class AA championship game.



The Washington Post All-Met Offensive Player of the Year and the Gatorade D.C. Player of the Year, Doyle led the Cadets to their first WCAC title since 1989. The Michigan commit faced one of the nation’s toughest schedules but completed 171 of 280 passes for 2,635 yards and 22 touchdowns.
