Final Rankings



Offensive Player of the Year
WR Eddie Royal -- Westfield, Sr., 5-10, 168
Half of Westfield's vaunted passing attack, Royal used his blazing speed to get behind defensive backs and his soft hands to reel in Sean Glennon's perfectly placed passes. Named the Virginia AAA Northern Region's offensive player of the year, Royal often was double-covered, but still managed to grab more than 40 passes for the second straight year. He had 41 catches for 875 yards and 11 touchdowns to lead the Bulldogs to the AAA Division 6 championship game. Considering offers from Marshall, Maryland, Ohio State, Tennessee, Virginia and Virginia Tech.



Defensive Player of the Year
DE Eric Lenz -- Urbana, Sr., 6-4, 220
University of Maryland-bound player rarely left the field. Had 82 tackles and nine sacks and returned two interceptions for scores on defense, had 29 catches for 523 yards and 13 touchdowns on offense and did it all on special teams—returned a kickoff for a score, blocked three field goals and five punts, made 35 of 42 extra points and averaged 36.9 yards per punt for the MVAL Chesapeake Division champions.



Coach of the Year
Bill McGregor -- DeMatha
One of the area's most successful and respected coaches, McGregor and the Stags had a dream season—even by DeMatha's lofty standards. The Stags (12-0) went undefeated for the fifth time under the 22nd-year coach, winning their third conference title in four years and 12th overall under McGregor. His teams have finished ranked No. 1 in The Post's Top 20 poll five times, not including 2003. McGregor picked up his 200th victory with a 48-17 victory over Good Counsel on Oct. 18 and is 205-30-3 overall. Even more impressive: every year under McGrgeor, DeMatha has had at least 10 seniors commit to play for Division I programs.
