By Bill Paterson

Star-crossed Ference Lang, who dominated play as a running back-defensive back before an ankle injury sidelined him for much of the playoffs, is the Delta Valley Conference MVP.

The 5-foot-8, 150-pound senior rushed for 1,049 yards, had 23 total touchdowns and seven interceptions for the 13-1 Pacers.

Grant swept several other awards: Puka Lopa, Defensive Player of the Year; Vei Moala, Lineman of the Year; Darryl Paulo, All-Purpose Player of the Year; and Mike Alberghini, Coach of the Year.

Monterey Trail's Drake Tofi was the Offensive Player of the Year.

Here is the rest of the all-conference team:

Davis - Dillard Brown, Shayne Reagan, Peter Smith; Elk Grove - Evan Autry, Robert Frazier, Steven Moore and Deon Ransom; Franklin - Nathan Didonato, Anthony King, Cody Mariner, Derek McIntyre, Curtis Shirey, Hayden Thornton; Grant - Caleb Cameron, Vidal Davis, James Sample, Filipo Sau, Terry Shine, Shaq Thompson; Laguna Creek - Cameron Abrams, Vaipou Afamasaga, Michael Ayers, Delvonte Hunt, Don Jackson; Monterey Trail - Derek Bellamy, Jesse Brown, Ethan Clark, Delvonte Johnson, Leonard Wood, Michael Worthen.
