All-Sentinel High School Football Team
It’s taken us some time to go over the facts, look at the statistics, interview coaches, and get everyone’s vote in, but here is your 2012 All-Sentinel High School football team as voted on by coaches, fans and our sports department:
Player of The Year
Kendall Fuller, Good Counsel Sr. WR/DB/KR
Coach of the Year
Dave Mencarini, Quince Orchard
Offensive Player of the Year
Dorian O’Daniel, Good Counsel Sr. RB/LB
Defensive Player of the Year
Marcus Newby, Quince Orchard Sr. LB
A look at our top four picks
Our top four awards go to those who stand out among the best.
Dave Mencarini, the venerable coach at Quince Orchard High School has come along away from his assistant coaching days at Seneca Valley.
He has won a state title at Quince Orchard and took a depleted team to the state title game this year.
While they lost in the finals, Mencarini’s coaching ability stood out this year as he pressed into service a third-string quarterback who started the season as a wide receiver.
Meanwhile, Kendall Fuller, a U.S. Army All-American over at Good Counsel stood out as a national recruit and one of the top rated recruits in the country. He is going to Virginia Tech and will be sorely missed at Our Lady of Good Counsel.
Fuller’s teammate Dorian O’Daniel, also a U.S. Army All-American is committed to Clemson and stole the show in the backfield as a three-year starter for Good Counsel.
Quince Orchard’s Marcus Newby, one of the quickest and hardest-hitting linebackers in the Metro area has committed to Nebraska.
