2015 Starbucks/Black Hat Football 2nd Team: The Defensive Backs

Filed in Uncategorized by on December 13, 2015



DB ISAIAH DOWNES, Lincoln High Trojans

The 6-foot, 155-pound junior is part of a talented class that has the Trojans optimistic for 2016. Downes has the potential to be as good as any DB in The 209 next fall, and some felt he was Stockton’s best DB this season. Click this link to check out Isaiah’s highlight tape.

DB RONALDO TIJERO, Manteca High Buffaloes

The 6-foot, 155-pounder earned a reputation as a hard hitter – you would expect nothing less from a defensive back playing for Coach Eric Reis – and he also provided big plays on offense for the Buffaloes, who advanced to the second round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division 3 playoffs. Tijero was the Valley Oak League’s co-Utility Player of the Year. He’s also quite a threat on offense, so enjoy his season highlights just by clicking on the link.

DB CHRIS MUNOZ, Pacheco High Panthers

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound junior is one of the most promising defensive players in The 209 as we head into 2016, ater putting together an impressive junior season. To check out Chris’ season highlight tape, just click on the link.

DB DAVID FORD, St. Mary’s Rams

The 5-foot-7, 175-pound was always around the ball for the Sac-Joaquin Section Division 1 semifinalist, getting in on 111 tackles, causing three fumbles and intercepting a pass. He’s also got some nice moves in the backfield running the ball. To check out Chris’ season highlight tape, just click on the link.
