STAFF WRITER

The Register’s All-County football team for 2015.

FIRST TEAM OFFENSE

Quarterbacks

BROCK JOHNSON

Mission Viejo, 6-2, 190, Sr.

The Register’s offensive player of the year.

DEVON MODSTER

Tesoro, 6-2, 220, Sr.

Modster was South Coast League offensive player of the year. He averaged 305 passing yards a game and threw 25 touchdown passes with only five interceptions. Modster completed 67 percent of his passes. His best of many excellent games came in the Titans’ loss to Mission Viejo. Modster passed for 415 yards and three touchdowns against the Diablos. He plans to sign with Arizona in February.

ERIC BARRIERE

La Habra, 6-0, 195, Sr.

He will forever be known in La Habra football history, and Orange County football history, for his final-play touchdown pass that got the Highlanders the win over San Clemente in the CIF-SS Southwest Division championship game. Barriere led the county in touchdown passes with 46. Barriere was selected the Freeway League’s player of the year. He has recruiting trips planned next month for Eastern Washington, Northern Arizona and Sacramento State.

Running backs

JACOB FIMBRES

Sonora, 5-10, 165, Sr.

He finished second in rushing in Orange County with 2,355 yards. The Freeway League’s offensive player of the year averaged 196 rushing yards a game and 8 yards a carry. He ran for 34 touchdowns. In the playoffs, he rushed for 133 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Tustin and 220 yards and four touchdowns in a loss to eventual Southwest Division finalist San Clemente.

BRANDON LAMARCHE

Mater Dei, 5-10, 190, Sr.

The Trinity League’s co-offensive most valuable player. LaMarche averaged 117 rushing yards a game and 6 yards a carry. He ran for 21 touchdowns. Some of his better games were in league games – 248 yards and two touchdowns against Santa Margarita, 196 yards and two scores against Orange Lutheran, and 160 yards and a touchdown against Servite. He has a scholarship offer from Idaho State with others showing growing interest.

Wide receivers

OSIRIS ST. BROWN

Mater Dei, 6-1, 170, Jr.

Acrobatic catches were routine for St. Brown. Of his 43 catches, 12 were for touchdowns. St. Brown averaged 88 receiving yards a game and 21 yards a reception. He had nine catches for 120 yards when the Monarchs beat Serra of Gardena in the second round of the Pac-5 Division playoffs. St. Brown has scholarship offers from many top programs, including Notre Dame and UCLA.

AUSTIN OSBORNE

Mission Viejo, 6-3, 175, So.

Fast and sure-handed, Osborne became Diablos quarterback Brock Johnson’s favorite target as the season progressed. He had four catches for 93 yards and two touchdowns in Mission Viejo’s win over Helix of La Mesa in the CIF Southern California Regionals. The week before, Osborne had six receptions for 208 yards and four touchdowns in the CIF-SS West Valley Division championship game. He was selected to the All-South Coast League first team.

Tight end

COLE FOTHERINGHAM

San Clemente, 6-4, 225, Sr.

A three-year starter, Fotheringham led the Tritons in receptions for the second year in a row. He had 45 recepetions for 600 yards, averaged 13 yards a reception and had 10 touchdown catches. Among his top games was a five-reception effort for 102 yards and two touchdowns in the Southwest Division semifinals against Buena Park. Fotheringham, also a standout run blocker, committed to Utah.

Offensive linemen

FRANK MARTIN

Mater Dei, 6-6, 295, Sr.

Martin played left tackle for the Monarchs. “We counted on him for his leadership and his domination,” Mater Dei coach Bruce Rollinson said. “Especially so when we got into the league part of the season and he was big for us in every playoff game, too.” Martin committed to USC. He was selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

LUKE WATTENBERG

JSerra, 6-5, 275, Sr.

A three-year starter, Wattenberg manned left tackle for the Lions. He also started and starred at defensive end. Wattenberg was the Trinity League’s co-lineman of the year. A Washington commit and one of the county’s top discuss throwers, Wattenberg was selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Game.

LOGAN BATHKE

Orange Lutheran, 6-5, 270, Sr.

Deceptively quick for his stature, Bathke was a key component for the Lancers’ offense, which averaged 30 points a game in the ultra-tough Trinity League. Bathke was selected to the All-Trinity League first team. He committed to Oregon. Bathke was selected to play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl on Jan. 3 at Orange Coast College.

DONTE HARRINGTON

San Clemente, 6-3, 285, Sr.

A left guard, Harrington is the first four-year starter as a Tritons interior lineman in 23 years. “Since day one when he stepped on campus, we knew he’d be something special,” San Clemente coach Jaime Ortiz said. Harrington, who has a 4.0 grade-point average, has offers from Boise State and New Mexico State, is getting actively recruited by Army and Navy and UCLA has expressed interest.

TUCKER SCOTT

San Clemente, 6-5, 275, Sr.

Scott played left tackle, a major part of any offense, so he played a vital role in the Tritons’ ability to average 47 points a game. As Coach Jaime Ortiz said, “He had a very tenacious attitude.” He was a three-year starter at left tackle. Scott also contributed as the team’s long snapper. Scott committed to Utah where he is expected to play center.
