Our All-NorCal Football Offense and Defense were chosen a little differently from years past. With so much disparity between the schedules that programs were able to play, we decided to replace our usual NorCal Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year, with Regional Players of the Year.
In addition to the overall NorCal Player of the Year (Lu-Magia Hearns), we also named a Bay Area Player of the Year and Sac-Joaquin Player of the Year.
BAY AREA PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Hassan Mahasin, Serra-San Mateo, Jr. — His nickname is “The Missile” and he skyrocketed himself to regional and national attention this spring. Cal-Hi Sports named him its State Running Back of the Year as he racked up 745 total yards and 10 touchdowns for the 5-0 Padres. He made plays all over the field and finished the spring as a four-star recruit with a number of Power 5 offers. In addition to being our Bay Area Player of the Year, he was also a Cal-Hi Sports 1st Team All-State selection as well as NorCalPreps.com’s NorCal Player of the Year.
SAC-JOAQUIN PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Chris Lands, Monterey Trail-Elk Grove, Sr. — When USC-bound star Prophet Brown opted out of the spring season, it was Lands who inherited the Do-Everything Role for the Mustangs. Maybe the only thing Lands didn’t do is complete a pass this spring (he was 0-for-1). However, he did manage to rush for 612 yards on just 50 (!) carries, an average 12.2 yards per tote. He also caught a 17-yard TD pass and had 176 return yards and two scores (one via kickoff and one via interception). He also added 16 tackles and a sack.
Following is our 20-man All-NorCal Football Offense roster. To check out who we got on the other side of the ball, visit our All-NorCal Football Defense.
