Mary Star High football would reap the rewards for a great 2012 season where they rebounded from an 0-10 season the prior year into a 4-6 mark plus a spot in the CIF-Southern Section Northwest Division playoffs.
Eight Stars were picked to be on the All-Del Rey League team.
Coach Mike Marinkovich paced the Stars to a 3-2 league mark, good for third place.
Junior running back Shane Nunez, senior RB/DB Jake Tedesco, senior TE/DB/K Joseph Alves, senior offensive lineman Nate Colon and senior quarterback Jeremy Atencio were named to the All-Del Rey League first team, while senior OL/LB Jacob Trutanich, junior OL/DL Matt Orebo and junior FB/DB James McDonald were second team selections for Mary Star.
Nunez led the Stars with 593 yards rushing on 104 carries and four touchdowns. Atencio did a lot more with his legs than his arm as he normally split time with junior quarterback Tyler Sestich until taking over the starting spot exclusively by mid-season. Atencio ran for 570 yards on 115 carries and four touchdowns, while also completing 10-of-34 passes for 270 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.
Tedesco ran for for 276 yards and two touchdowns on 52 carries in limited action, while he was also Mary Star's top receiver with 15 catches for 231 yards and three touchdowns. Alves caught 12 catches for a team-high 277 yards and three touchdowns.
