DL       Jake Pinkston                        Fairfax County

Note: This was another brutally difficult choice with so many deserving candidates. Raymond Jackson was virtually unblockable for the Baltimore Metro All Stars. Mike Hickey from Loudoun County gave opposing offenses fits. Kyle Snyder was menacing from his linebacker position for Montgomery County and Derian Pickett led the league in tackles. Keith Myers had 4 interceptions in 6 games and had Troy Vincent Jr. been able to play more than the 3 games he played, he may have far and away led the league in interceptions. But, Jake “Pink Slip” Pinkston was just so dominant in every facet of the game on defense, that he made it almost impossible for opposing offenses to run their plays and get in sync. It was no coincidence that he started on the defensive line for powerhouse Robinson High School as a 14 year old freshman. He recorded 19 tackles in 6 games during the GYFL season, while being double teamed on most plays. He led the league in sacks with 7 in six games. But, the statistics don’t do him justice. When you watch this kid on film he takes your breath away. He has a relentless motor that won’t stop and we expect him to be a top rated college prospect in a few years.  Jake is a great student and a mult-sport athletes who dominates the wrestling mat and the baseball diamond just as much as he does opposing offensive lineman.  His father has guided him every step of the way and helped him achieve great accolades up to this point in his life and we don't expect that to change.  If Jake continues to work hard on the field and in the classroom, the sky is absolutely the limit for him and the GYFL was honored to have him be the anchor of the first class of many All Stars that will come through this league.
