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.
