2009 GSP All-Southern California FB Team

Gardena Serra receiver/defensive back Robert Woods and Westlake Village Oaks Christian running back/linebacker Malcolm Jones are the SoCal Co-Players of the Year...

For the third straight year, GoldenStatePreps.com has decided to do two separate teams for each part of the state, an all-Northern California team and an all-Southern California team (which only includes seniors). We'll also have a Super All-State Underclass team.

Here is a look at the All-Southern California Football Team for 2009:

Two players earned Co-Player of the Year honors, for their work on both sides of the ball: Gardena Serra's Robert Woods and Westlake Village Oaks Christian's Malcolm Jones.  Woods, a USC commit, finished the 2009 season with 66 receptions for 1,112 yards and 15 touchdowns and added 96 tackles and eight picks.  Jones, a UCLA verbal, rushed for 2,477 yards and 40 touchdowns and added 70 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks.

Our Offensive Player of the Year is Dillon Baxter from San Diego Mission Bay.  The USC-bound Baxter set a California single-season touchdown record with 72 touchdowns, rushing for 2,974 yards and also threw for 1,922 yards and 25 touchdowns.

The SoCal Defensive Player of the Year is Huntington Beach Edison linebacker Jordan Zumwalt.  The Stanford commit had 164 tackles and 3.5 sacks and led the Chargers to an unbeaten regular season.
