Mission Bay (CA) QB/RB/WR Named U.S. Army All-American Bowl National Player-of-the-Year

Mission Bay High School's Dillon Baxter had one of the most incredible high school football seasons ever, and Friday the San Diego-area senior was named as the National Player of the Year by the officials of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Baxter, who also was named as California's Mr. Football on Friday, played quarterback, running back and wide receiver this season, accounted for 76 touchdowns and 5,115 yards of total offense. NBC San Diego reports that Baxter's senior year will go down in the record books.

Now the big question facing Baxter is whether he should stick to his verbal commitment to play his college ball at USC. According to the NY Times today, Baxter is re-thinking his decision because Pete Carroll has resigned to take the head coaching job with the Seattle Seahawks.
