Below are the rest of the players on this year's Dream Team:

Offensive Player of the Year


RB/Newport Harbor

The senior running back bounced back from a collarbone injury that sidelined him for almost his entire junior season and posted impressive numbers in his final year with Newport Harbor. Teaupa rushed for an area-best 1,662 yards, to go with 11 touchdowns, and he produced four 200-yard games on the ground. He garnered the Sunset League Offensive Player of the Year award after carrying the load for the Sailors by rushing 262 times. Teaupa led the Sailors to their best record (4-1) in Sunset League play in 35 years and the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs, the program's first quarterfinal appearance in seven years. The single-season yard total by Teaupa ranks eighth in Newport Harbor's history. He also rushed for 272 yards in the first round against Troy, giving Teaupa the eighth-best single-game rushing performance in the program's record book. Teaupa earned third-team All-Orange County honors by the Orange County Register.

Defensive Player of the Year


MLB/Costa Mesa

The junior middle linebacker used his athleticism, speed, strength and smarts to register his second straight season with 100-plus tackles, an impressive feat considering he starred at tailback as well for Costa Mesa, rushing for 1,391 yards and an area-best 17 touchdowns. Crenshaw finished with 110 tackles, six for losses, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He was relentless in his pursuit of whoever carried the ball and he earned third-team All-Orange County and first-team All-Orange Coast League laurels. Twice he posted 18-tackle performances. Crenshaw is expected to be one of the county's highly sought after seniors next season as Coach Wally Grant said Boise State, Utah, San Diego State, UCLA and Missouri are recruiting the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder. Grant said Crenshaw is as talented as Crenshaw's father, DeWayne, who earned All-CIF Southern Section Division VIII honors after leading Costa Mesa to its first section final appearance in 1993. He is a two-time Dream Team selection.



QB/Newport Harbor

The sophomore quarterback became the starter after Zach Wade broke his foot in the second game of the season and Newport Harbor took off. Norris went 7-3 as the Sailors' starting signal caller, including five straight wins late in the season, the program's longest winning streak in seven years. He completed 109 of 186 passes for 1,463 yards and 16 touchdowns, with six interceptions. Norris threw a game-winning 22-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal with 24 seconds left to lead Newport Harbor to a 27-26 comeback win against CdM in the Battle of the Bay. Norris earned first-team All-Sunset League honors.



The senior running back capped an illustrious three-year career with Estancia, finishing as the Newport-Mesa career leader for yards rushing (5,489) and touchdowns (58). In his final year, Murtha rushed 225 times for 1,594 yards and 15 touchdowns, and he received the Orange Coast League Offensive Player of the Year award for the third straight season. For his career, he rushed for 54 touchdowns, caught two passes for touchdowns and returned two kickoffs for touchdowns. Murtha helped the Eagles reach the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs for the fourth straight season. Murtha is a three-time Dream Team selection.
