Running back Jered Stoffal was named the FWL's offensive player of the year after rushing for nearly 1500 yards and 20 touchdowns, while Trojan linebacker Ricky Cortes was selected the league's best on defense. 

In two seasons at the helm in Winston, Polamalu has a 15-7 overall mark, including a 10-1 record this season, and a pair of Far West League titles. 

Joining Stoffal on offense were linemen Joseph Dubie and Mason Vosika; quarterback Paul Polamalu; and wide receivers Sky Woods and David Guthrie.

Cortes was joined on defense by two-way selections Jered Stoffal, Joseph Dubie, Sky Woods and David Guthrie.

Sutherlin's Jim Henry was named first-team offense and defense for the Bulldogs. Junior kicker Kyle Jaukurri joined Henry on offense, while teammate Dirk Kats was selected as a first-team defensive back.
