Football: De'Anthony Thomas is Glenn Davis Award winner

Crenshaw tailback-defensive back De'Anthony Thomas, who led the Cougars to a second consecutive City Section title, has been selected The Times' Glenn Davis Award winner as the top player in Southern California.

The USC-bound Thomas becomes the first City player to win the award since Carson quarterback John Walsh in 1990.

Other players honored by The Times were Corona Centennial quarterback Michael Eubank as Back of the Year and Anaheim Servite's Troy Niklas as Lineman of the Year. Santa Margarita's Harry Welch was the Coach of the Year.

The full all-star package, including the final top 25 and first-team player selections, can be found at

Please let those commentators who say there are too many bowl game know that they can stop watching and let us enjoy ourselves. They can always wait until March and complain about the 65 NCAA basketball tournament games. I went to 36 football games this season and I will be going to the Riverside versus San Bernardino all star game at Corona HS, Saturday Jan. 8 at 7 pm.

The Under Amore cablecast would have been a more informative if the announcers would have named the high school of more players during the game. It is unlikely that many viewers follow high school football well enough to know where each player went to high school. I read USAToday's and prepnation's information every week and I did not know where any of the players had played. Joe Figueroa


Cant wait to see Thomas suit up for the Trojans & I expect him to make at least as much impact as Robert Woods did this past season.

Also, it's great to see De'Anthony remaining true to his local roots by deciding to play for the Trojans despite the sanctions.
