All-Santa Clarita Valley: Football

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake DiLuigi set a Canyon record with 1,862 yards on the ground, rushing for more than 100 yards in seven of the Cowboys’ last nine games. He scored 43 touchdowns, setting a Foothill League record, and finished as the No. 2 scorer in Southern California behind Oaks Christian of Westlake Village’s Marc Tyler (45 TDs). DiLuigi was the 10th player in area history to score 40 or more touchdowns in a season. During a three-game stretch late in the season, DiLuigi scored 15 touchdowns against Saugus, Burroughs of Burbank and Valencia. He followed it with a 143-yard, two-touchdown effort in a 16-14 victory over Hart on Nov. 10, helping the Cowboys claim their first Foothill League title. In the Div. II playoffs, DiLuigi rushed for 419 yards and scored six touchdowns, leading Canyon to its first Southern Section title since 1985. His biggest play of the postseason might have come on defense, when he stopped Hart receiver Troy Yudin a half-yard short of a first down and less than 2 yards from the end zone on a fourth-down play with 19 seconds remaining. The tackle secured the Cowboys’ fourth division title. DiLuigi, who was honored as the Foothill League’s Most Valuable Player, caught 31 passes and averaged more than 30 yards per kickoff return. – Erik Boal DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR Tyler Hawkins, Sr., LB, Canyon It’s easy for a team’s defense to be overshadowed when it’s rolling up 41.4 points per game. Not with Hawkins on the field. A relentless pass-rusher who also was impressive against the run, the 5-foot-9, 180-pound Hawkins was one of the central figures on a Canyon High defense that played bigger than its size at every position. During its run to the Southern Section Div. II title, the Cowboys surrendered less than 12 points per game in the playoffs, limiting Foothill League rivals Valencia and Hart of Newhall to 13 apiece in the semifinals and championship. Although teammates Garrett Leary and Matt Brown might have gained more recognition during the regular season, it was Hawkins who played the biggest in the most important games. In the Dec. 9 division final against Hart, Hawkins made nine tackles – including seven solo stops – broke up a pass and blocked an extra point, receiving praise from coach Harry Welch as being Canyon’s best player on the field. The 21-13 victory gave Canyon its fourth section championship and first since 1985. Hawkins, who is hoping to receive an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy and possibly play football for the Midshipmen, also stood out during the Cowboys’ 16-14 Foothill League victory Nov. 10 over Hart. With the Indians driving with less than two minutes remaining, Hawkins recovered a fumble on Canyon’s 5-yard line to secure the Cowboys’ first Foothill League title. Hawkins, an all-league first-team selection, also blocked an extra point in the regular-season victory over Hart. – Erik Boal DAILY NEWS ALL-SANTA CLARITA VALLEY Offense QB: Michael Herrick, Sr., Valencia RB: Robbie Casselberry, Sr., Hart RB: Shane Vereen, Jr., Valencia WR: Jason Engelberg, Sr., Valencia WR: Virgil Hill, Jr., Valencia WR: Richie Wirthlin, Sr., Canyon WR: Troy Yudin, Sr., Hart OL: Nick Peterson, Jr., Canyon OL: Nick Madia, Sr., Canyon OL: Jackson Smith, Sr., Hart OL: Chris Vandepas, Sr., Valencia OL: Ricky Vittallo, Sr., Hart K: Phillip Malinowski, Sr., Canyon Defense DL: Wilfred Aka, Sr., Hart DL: Ben Armbruster, Jr., Canyon DL: Garrett Leary, Sr., Canyon LB: Matt Brown, Sr., Canyon LB: Keith Klemens, Jr., Valencia LB: Ryan McKillop, Soph., Saugus LB: Patrick Sarkissian, Sr., Hart DB: Chris Kingsbury, Jr., Canyon DB: Randy Rigg, Sr., Canyon DB: M.J.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR J.J. DiLuigi, Jr., RB, Canyon The Cowboys have had a tradition of talented running backs, but DiLuigi set a standard that will be tough to match by future Canyon High ballcarriers. Following a 2,000-yard season at the junior-varsity level last year, in which he led Canyon to a 10-0 record, DiLuigi was optimistic he could make an impact in his first varsity campaign. Not even he could imagine how big that impact would be. last_img read more
