The following student-athletes have been selected to The Washington Post’s 2019 All-Met team for football offense:

Player of the Year

Rakim Jarrett, WR, Sr., St. John’s

Jarrett was the most electrifying player in the area and a threat to score every time he touched the ball. He caught 60 passes for 950 yards and seven touchdowns while playing against perhaps the toughest schedule in the country for a St. John’s team that won the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference regular season title. He initially committed to LSU but then flipped to Maryland on signing day.

Coach of the Year

Maurice Vaughn, Dunbar

In his third year as head coach, Vaughn led Dunbar to its first 10-win season since 2007. After winning just two games in year one, he made a promise to his players that they’d be champions by year three.
