Kevin Norman, Northwood, QB Norman, a senior, was chosen as the Pacific Coast League offensive MVP and first team all-CIF after passing for 1,7 1 0 yards and 20 touchdowns and rushing for 1,093 yards and 1 7 touchdowns. Kevin ran the show in our spread offense, coach Rick Curtis said. He was the first quarterback in our schools history to pass for over 1,000 yards and rush for over 1,000 yards in the same season. Kevin was an exciting player.

Nathan Nellessen, Northwood, K Nellessen, a senior, hit five field goals and 36 PATs. Nathan holds numerous kicking records. He is a tireless worker and one who no doubt will continue his kicking career on the collegiate level, said coach Rick Curtis.

Charlie Bollard, Northwood, OL Bollard, a senior, was named first team all-Pacific Coast League after playing well on both sides of the ball. Charlie is truly a success story and one that all football players should look at as they enter high school to play football, coach Rick Curtis said. He worked extremely hard for four years to get his shot at playing on Friday nights. And once he got his chance, he took full advantage.

Matt Blackburn, Northwood, OL Blackburn played center and linebacker for the Timberwolves and was named first team all-Pacific Coast League and all-CIF. He ended the year with 9 1 tackles on defense. Matt excelled at solidifying our offensive line, Northwood coach Rick Curtis said. He stepped up each week on defense for us. As a captain, he showed outstanding leadership skills through his consistent play.

Jonathan Albright, Northwood, WR Albright, a senior, earned first team all-league and all-CIF honors after leading Northwood with 55 receptions for 585 yards and 10 TDs. Jonathan really developed into a major offensive threat, coach Rick Curtis said.
