The senior defensive end created havoc for offenses with his pass-rushing abilities, lifting CdM to back-to-back CIF Southern Section Southern Division titles. During the latest championship run, the Sea Kings shut out their first three playoff opponents. Reinhardt, a 6-foot-3, 225-pounder, faced many double teams, yet was able to register nine sacks, and make 47 tackles, record one safety and force one fumble. He earned second-team All-Orange County and first-team All-Pacific Coast League honors. Reinhardt is a two-time Dream Team selection.

The senior defensive end was one of three linemen to start for the second straight season for CdM. Williford's presence benefited four inexperienced linebackers.

He returned the interception 21 yards for a touchdown in the Sea Kings' 25-0 road win against Woodbridge in the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs. He earned first-team All-Pacific Coast League honors.

He recorded eight tackles and returned an interception 30 yards for a touchdown in CdM's CIF Southern Section Southern Division championship win against Garden Grove.
The senior middle linebacker was one of the biggest hitters in the area and a sure tackler for Newport Harbor. Taylor totaled 120 tackles, one for a loss, and intercepted one pass. Taylor's interception came in the Sailors' 42-21 win against Troy in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs, Newport Harbor's first postseason triumph in five years. He helped the Sailors reach the playoffs for the fourth straight season. Taylor earned first-team All-Sunset League honors.
The senior linebacker was a reliable tackler for Estancia, finishing with 84 solo tackles, the most in the area, giving him 122 total tackles.
