The following student-athletes were selected to The Washington Post’s 2022 All-Met team for football offense:

Player of the Year

Tony Rojas, RB, Sr., Fairfax

He had plenty chances to leave Fairfax for an established football power. Instead, he stuck with the program, helping build the Lions from perennial also-rans into one of Virginia’s most feared teams. The future Penn State linebacker was the best player every time he took the field this fall, accounting for 2,239 rushing yards and 35 rushing touchdowns (to go along with 13 sacks and five forced fumbles on defense), all while leading his Lions to a 13-1 record, a state semifinal appearance and arguably the best season in school history.

First team

Kyle Altuner, OL, Jr., Good Counsel

A two-time all-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference selection, the 6-foot-4, 290-pounder was an integral part of the Falcons’ high-powered running game this fall.

Zachary Anderson, OL, Sr., Quince Orchard

The U-Mass. commit was a cornerstone for the unstoppable Cougars offense, helping lead Quince Orchard to a second consecutive undefeated season and Maryland 4A title.

Jason Collins Jr., Util., Sr., Theodore Roosevelt

The ultra-athletic Rough Rider played all over the field for the D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association champs. He was most dangerous as a return man, scoring 11 touchdowns on punt and kickoff returns.

Colton Hinton, WR, Sr., Stone Bridge

The Furman commit did a little bit of everything for the 12-win Bulldogs, tallying 15 touchdown receptions, nine rushing scores and 1,579 all-purpose yards.

Buom Jock, WR/DB, Sr., Episcopal

A two-way star for the Interstate Athletic Conference champions, Jock went for 814 yards and nine touchdowns as a receiver and nabbed four interceptions as a defensive back.

Evan Link, OL, Sr., Gonzaga

A three-year starter for the Eagles, Link yielded zero sacks in his senior season. Committed to Michigan.

Maxwell Moss, WR, Sr., Archbishop Spalding

Moss formed a game-changing connection with his All-Met quarterback, catching 72 balls for 1,416 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Jeff Overton Jr., RB, So., Freedom (Woodbridge)

The engine of the highest-scoring offense in Virginia state history, Overton exceeded 40 touchdowns and 2,500 rushing yards for the Class 6 state champions.

Isaiah Ragland, RB, Sr., Centreville

A two-time first team selection, Ragland continued in his role as the prolific Wildcats’ workhorse this season. He finished with 235 carries for 2,024 yards and 34 touchdowns.

Jordan Seaton, OL, Jr., St. John’s

A two-time first team selection, the skilled junior helped the Cadets navigate a tough WCAC schedule and win a second consecutive title.

Fletcher Westphal, OL, Jr., Tuscarora

The towering 6-8 lineman was a force up front for the Huskies during a strong 9-2 season.

Malik Washington, QB, So., Archbishop Spalding

The sophomore was spectacular under center for the Cavaliers, throwing for 2,979 yards and 29 touchdowns as Spalding marched to a conference title.

Coach of the Year

Darryl Overton, Freedom (Woodbridge)

It’s hard to imagine football was an afterthought in Woodbridge before Overton arrived. In his eighth year at the helm, Overton led the Eagles to one of the most dominant seasons in state history, ending with the team’s first Class 6 title. The 15-0 Eagles shattered the state scoring record (by 133 points) and won every one of their games by at least three touchdowns (and, on average, by almost eight touchdowns) with one of the younger varsity teams in the area.
