Central Valley High School's varsity football program placed the most players on the Valley Oak League's second team with six honorees as selected by the conference's coaches last month in Oakdale.

"They all deserved what they received," Hawks coach Tim Garcia said.

Senior Anthony Martinez and junior Tyler Dodd were rewarded for their stellar play on the offensive line.

They were also major contributors on defense.

Dodd had 54 tackles, including five for a loss, two sacks and one forced fumble.

Martinez collected 39 tackles, including three for a loss.

Senior Joaquin Casas shared the load with sophomore Vince Lopez at running back. They combined to rush for 1,560 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Casas ran for 838 yards and 11 touchdowns on 143 carries.

Lopez gained 722 yards and scored four times on 117 carries.

Sean McLeod starred on the defensive line. The senior accumulated 67 tackles, six sacks, two forced fumbles, two recovered fumbles, nine quarterback hurries and four pass deflections. He also returned a fumble recovery 96 yards for a TD.

Ricky Rogers registered 39 tackles and intercepted one pass while playing cornerback. The junior was a standout receiver as well, catching 43 passes for 463 yards and one touchdown.

Central Valley's honorable-mention selections were Gerald Garcia, Trevor Mew, Stephen Fonsworth and Cameron Moscozo.

Garcia amassed 46 tackles and two interceptions at defensive back. The senior was also the team's go-to receiver. He caught 52 passes for 579 yards and six touchdowns.

Mew, a junior quarterback, completed 117 of 203 passes for 1,859 yards with seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Fonsworth, a junior linebacker, tallied 28 tackles, including two for a loss, and three sacks.

Moscozo, a senior, played on the offensive line.

The Hawks finished in sixth place with a 2-5 record in the VOL standings.
