Maryland/DC all-star college football team

Joe Robbins

The all-Maryland and DC team features a strong receiving corps complemented by a great O-line.

Maryland and DC produce high-caliber talent year in and year out in high school football. With schools like Good Counsel, DeMatha Catholic and Gilman, it's no surprise that the region has its fair share of can't-miss talent. Although players sometimes opt to leave their hometown and pursue a collegiate career elsewhere, we wanted to recognize the all-Maryland and DC team -- in part as a response to Pete with California, Florida and Texas and in part so we can see what a dream team of Maryland and DC players would look like.

Our aim was to compile the most talented athletes that attended high schools in Maryland and DC and are currently playing college football. There are 11 players on each side of the ball, plus one kicker and one punter. The All-Maryland and DC team is very gifted team from top to bottom. The strengths are highlighted by its dynamic offensive line (and imagine if Cyrus Kouandijo decided to stay another year at 'Bama) and its defensive backs, headlined by Florida State's Ronald Darby

Maryland leads all schools with six players on the team, so that's a plus.

So, what do you think? Who did we miss? Is the lack of a experienced kicker an issue, or will that offense simply dominate? Would this team win the Big Ten? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
