The News Tribune 2009 All-Area Football Team

Defensive Lineman, 6-3, 225, Senior
Bio: The Falcons’ overpowering defensive end was named the Narrows League’s Defensive MVP. He recorded 78 solo tackles, tipped 10 passes, forced four fumbles and had one interception. Idaho, Oregon State and Washington State have offered scholarships.

Defensive Lineman, 6-3, 275, Senior
Bio: Despite missing half the season with an ankle injury, Iona finished the season with 10 tackles-for-loss. When healthy, he was one of the state’s most dominant interior defensive linemen. He has given an oral commitment to play at Oregon State University.

Defensive Lineman, 6-3, 265, Senior
Bio: The SPSL 3A’s Defensive Lineman of the Year and two-time All-Area selection is also one of the most coveted prospects on the West Coast. Potoa’e has given a “soft” oral commitment to play at the University of Washington, but he plans to visit other schools to be confident in his decision. Potoa’e will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January at San Antonio.

Offensive Lineman, 6-3, 310, Junior
Bio: Shelton is a two-time all-area selection, and with good reason. An absolutely dominating two-way player, he won the SPSL North’s Lineman of the Year award and was a first-team pick on offense and defense. When Shelton missed two weeks this season because of an injury, he filled in as coach.
