Boys: Kenny Brown
Brown has been one of those versatile type quarterbacks all year who can beat opponents with his arm or his legs. Last week, with North Torrance trailing 33-21 at halftime, Brown let loose with his arm as the Saxons rallied to beat Inglewood, 42-33, and advanced to the CIF Southern Section Div. X title game opposite league rival Santa Monica. Brown finished with 331 yards passing and six touchdowns. On defense, Brown also shined as a free safety and came up with an interception.
Girls: Courtney Schultz
(Harvard-Westlake, North Hollywood)
It's been a tough year in some respects for Schultz as the preseason All-American and Stanford-bound standout has endured the injury bug. But in last weekend's CIF state championships, Schultz ended the season on a high note as she led her team to its second straight Div. III title. The 6-1 senior finished with 17 kills and 10 digs to lead Harvard-Westlake past El Molino of Forestville, 15-12, 15-11, 15-12. Schultz also was named match MVP for the second straight year.
