Camryn Bynum (CB) and Daniel Juarez (OL): Corona (Ca.) Centennial (14-1)

Centennial took on perennial powerhouse De La Salle in a battle for the State Championship of California. It was every bit the titanic clash it was expected to be with De La Salle claiming a 28-21 victory.

The game was close throughout, but Centennial came up on the short end of the stick in the end.

Congratulations to Bynum and Juarez on finishing outstanding careers at Centennial.

Tevin Paul: DE, Austin (Tx.) Lake Travis (15-1)

Lake Travis versus Katy for the Texas 6A Division II State Championship was a matchup of two teams that dismantled nearly every opponent they took on during the season and the playoffs.

The script did not change for Katy, who dominated this contest from start to finish in a 34-7 rout.

Though the season did not end the way Paul wanted it to, Lake Travis can be proud of the season they had. No shame in losing to Katy -- they are ALWAYS dominant in Texas, and, in my opinion, should be crowned the National Champions.

They went 16-0 and outscored opponents 778-62. Keep in mind that De La Salle (14-1), the number one ranked team on MaxPreps, lost to Euless Trinity. Trinity bowed out of the Texas playoffs in the first round.

On a positive note, Paul was named defensive MVP of his district.

Here is a full list of our current football commits. Melquise Stovall is currently Cal's only representative in one of the three All-American games.

He's slated to play in the U.S. Army All American Bowl.
