Carter

Woodberry Forest's DeQuece Carter.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR

DeQuece Carter, Woodberry Forest, Senior

Carter opened the season as the primary target in Woodberry Forest’s offense. Injuries limited Carter to just six games, but he still posted a team-high 58 receptions for 1,067 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was named Prep League Player of the Year and was an all-state performer. The Fordham University signee finished his high school career as Central Virginia’s all-time leading receiver with 153 receptions for 2,815 yards and 32 touchdowns.


FIRST TEAM

Quarterback

Carter Shifflett, Western Albemarle

Shifflett threw for nearly 1,200 yards and was responsible for 20 touchdowns for a Western Albemarle team that reached the second round of the Class 3 Region C playoffs. Shifflett also rushed for 438 yards for the Warriors.


Running backs

Jaylen Alexander, Orange County

The standout running back was the centerpiece of the Hornets’ offense this season. Alexander eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark for the third straight year. He led the team with 1,389 yards and 10 touchdowns and was an all-district and regional selection.

Austin Shifflett, Western Albemarle

The sophomore emerged as a rising star in the Jefferson District at the running back position. He amassed 1,945 yards of total offense and 20 touchdowns and was a first-team all-district and all-region selection for the Warriors.


Wide receivers

DeQuece Carter, Woodberry Forest

The 2018 Prep League Player of the Year was instant offense for the Tigers every time he touched the ball. Carter led the team in catches, touchdowns and receiving yards and helped Woodberry Forest win another Prep League title.

Myles Ward, Albemarle

The senior was an impact player in his first season at Albemarle after transferring from St. Anne’s-Belfield. Ward led the team in receiving yards and touchdown catches and was a first team all-Jefferson District and Region 5D selection.


All-Purpose

Jarett Hunter, Louisa County

The Jefferson District Offensive Player of the Year rushed for more than 1,500 yards and 25 touchdowns this fall as the focal point of Coach Will Patrick’s Lion-Wing offense. Hunter also played quarterback and receiver for a Lions team that completed back-to-back undefeated district seasons.


Offensive line

Robbie Guinn, Louisa County

The senior guard served as the anchor on a Louisa County offensive line that helped the Lions average more than 362 yards of total offense this season. He was a first team all-district selection and also earned regional honors.

Walt Stribling, Fluvanna County

The senior offensive tackle was a dominant force on the edge for the Flucos as both a run and pass blocker. He garnered all-district and all-region honors.

Sayer Brown, Western Albemarle

Brown was the unquestioned leader up front for the Warriors. The senior made all the calls on the line and was a devastating run blocker and an all-district performer.

David Munoz, Louisa County

Munoz was one of the most improved players on the Lions’ roster this season. He was a key cog in a Lions’ rushing attack that averaged 280 yards a game.

Colby McGhee, Orange County

McGhee was the foundation of the Hornets’ vaunted running attack this season. The guard was a first team all-region selection at guard and was the primary player that Jaylen Alexander ran behind when the Hornets needed a big play.
