All-Baltimore City: Football

All-Baltimore City
Offensive Player
Tavon Austin, Dunbar

Austin, The Baltimore Sun's Offensive Player of the Year for a third straight season, finished with 7,947 career rushing yards, eclipsing the previous state mark of 5,920. He also had 92 career touchdowns.

Austin, 5 feet 9 and 170 pounds, also had three interceptions as a defensive back. Scores of colleges are recruiting Austin, including West Virginia, Maryland, Michigan and North Carolina, which have made his short list.

Defensive Player
Horace Miller, Dunbar

No defensive player in the metro area spent more time in opposing backfields this season than Miller, who made 133 tackles, including 29 sacks, and forced six fumbles, recovering three, to help lead the Poets to their third straight Class 1A state title.

Splitting his time between defensive end and linebacker, the 6-2, 220-pound senior used his agility and speed off the end to consistently beat pass protectors, recording 46 sacks over the past two seasons.

Coach of the Year
Eric Woodson, Northwestern

In his four years as coach, Woodson has taken Northwestern from the edge of the abyss to the top of the heap. He took over a program that was in disarray, having won just five games in three years, and built it into a disciplined unit that this fall finished 9-2, including 8-0 in Baltimore City's Division II, to earn the school's first trip to the state playoffs.
