The Washington Post released its Fall All-Met teams Tuesday morning, and Maryland commits were all over the football roster.
On offense, three-star Hayfield receiver Brian Cobbs and three-star DeMatha offensive lineman Evan Gregory earned First Team honors. Cobbs threw for 1,095 yards and 11 touchdowns in the four starts he made at quarterback this season, adding to his 39 receptions for nine touchdowns and 11 rushing scores. Gregory was a key cog on DeMatha’s offensive line that cleared the way for 1,160 Stag rushing yards.
Though he’s committed as a four-star and Under Armour All-American defensive tackle, DeMatha’s Austin Fontaine was talented enough on the offensive line to earn Second Team All-Met honors, as was three-star Friendship Collegiate receiver Dontay Demus. The 6’4 wideout finished with 66 receptions for 1,167 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Three-star Bishop McNamara offensive lineman Spencer Anderson earned an honorable mention.
On the defensive side of the ball, three-star Eleanor Roosevelt safety Raymond Boone and three-star linebacker Durell Nchami were named to the First Team. Nchami was “Montgomery County’s most imposing defender,” with seven sacks and three fumble recoveries in addition to 10 tackles for loss. At Maryland, he projects as a BUCK linebacker where he can use his 6’3, 205-pound frame (which he’ll surely add to) to force his way into opposing Big Ten backfields. Boone finished with his high school career with a playoff appearance, but the highlight of the year was this unbelievable catch.

Three-star H.D. Woodson cornerback Vincent Flythe III was named to the second team after manning a defensive backfield with a fellow Maryland commit, four-star Noah Boykin. Boykin has been entertaining other offers since he’s committed, most notably Notre Dame and Virginia Tech, and the Terps’ coaching staff seems to be aware they’ve got work to do to ensure that he signs the paper with their letterhead at the top of it.
After committing in early August, three-star Good Counsel linebacker Tyler Baylor put together a solid senior season, helping the Falcons back to the WCAC semifinals and doing enough along the way to earn an honorable mention.
