Christ the King quarterback Terrel Hunt was one of the best in the city and will take his skills up to Syracuse next season.
The following players separated themselves from the pack this season, doing whatever it took to help their teams win. In the process, they also managed to earn a spot on our All-City team:
RB BRANDON BARNES TOTTENVILLE, SOPH.
The first-year starter improved as the season progressed, leading the Pirates (11-1) to the PSAL semifinals. Barnes threw for 1,110 yards and 22 TDs against only one interceptions in the regular season.
FB/LB FATON BAUTA POLY PREP, JR.
The 6-3, 220-pound fullback/linebacker was ultra-physical on both sides of the ball for the 7-1 Blue Devils. Already drawing interest from the likes of Florida, Maryland and Ohio State, Bauta may wind up being the most sought-after senior next fall.
WR/DB ANTHONY BRONZO FORDHAM PREP, SR.
Bronzo's leadership and inspired play propelled the Rams to their best season ever in the CHSFL. Starred at four different positions and earned MVP honors in Fordham Prep's Turkey Bowl win over Xavier.
WR DEVON CAJUSTE HOLY CROSS, SR.
The 6-4, 215-pound senior did it all for Holy Cross, leading the CHSFL 'AAA' in receiving with 47 catches for 864 yards and nine touchdowns while also punting and playing safety. Compiled those stats while facing constant double teams and playing with two different quarterbacks.
WR/DB ALVIN CORNELIUS TOTTENVILLE, JR.
Cornelius rarely left the field, pulling duty on both sides of the ball. He'll project as a vertical pass-catching threat in college, but in the meantime Cornelius will continue to hone his cover skills, chasing an elusive PSAL title.
RB JOHN DIAZ ST. JOSEPH BY-THE-SEA, JR.
The 5-6, 175-pound rusher put up big numbers for the Vikes. Diaz ran for 1,479 yards and 15 scores during the regular season. He recorded a career-best 319 rushing yards against St. Francis Prep.
OL IVAN FOY FORT HAMILTON, SR.
The 6-4, 285-pound Foy was a key cog in the line that gave junior QB Marvin Centeno the time to engineer big plays, and he also notched 72 tackles and two sacks on defense.
QB TYRELL GOODMAN STEPINAC, SR.
Dynamic athlete put together a terrific season that ended with an 'AA' crown. The dual-threat passed for 1,686 yards and rushed for another 1,172 yards. He accounted for 34 touchdowns in the regular season.
QB TERREL HUNT CHRIST THE KING, SR.
The Syracuse-bound senior was the most dangerous player in the CHSFL. Blessed with speed, elusiveness and a flair for the dramatic, Hunt threw for 1,289 yards and 10 touchdowns while rushing for 1,218 yards and 14 touchdowns in the regular season.
RB WILBERT LEE BOYS & GIRLS, SR.
