Catholic Memorial, Everett dominate All-State team

It's time to unveil our All-State football team, as featured in the September issue of ESPNHS (plus an additional 50 top players). It's no shock to see Everett with three players on the first team, but it is somewhat surprising that Catholic Memorial leads the way with four selections, most of any team. All four players (A.J. Doyle, Armani Reeves, Camren Williams and Donovan Henry) are Division I recruits.

The team is based on projected on-field performance and accomplishments, not necessarily recruiting potential. To see the state's top football recruits, click here. The first team quarterbacks are posted here, with the complete All-State team listed after the jump. Disagree with any of my picks? Unlikely, but let me know about it in the comments or on Twitter (@ESPNHSGrimala).
