Trio from Virginia named Parade All-Americans

Virginia is known for producing top football prospects. This year three standouts from the Class of 2012 have been recognized as Parade All-Americans. The 49th edition of the All-American team will be revealed in Sunday's edition of the Parade Magazine.

Representing Virginia are Dan River's Trey Edmunds (running back), Goochland's Colby Cooke (kicker) and Briar Wood's Alex Carter.

Edmunds was named Single All-State by VirginiaPreps.com, as well as the site's Single A Offensive Player of the Year. An early commitment to Virginia Tech, Edmunds put up tremendous numbers this season, rushing for 2,596 yards on 283 carries, scoring 34 touchdowns. He is expected to play linebacker for the Hokies. Dan River won two playoff games in a season for the first time in school history and, in the process, Edmunds rushed for 696 yards and 10 touchdowns in the three postseason games.

Cooke was also a VirginiaPreps.com Single A All-State selection, and Goochland coach Joe Fowler said of his prized senior: "He was a weapon on offense in that we were almost guaranteed points once we crossed the 35 yard line. Third in VHSL history in career field goals and tied for second in field goals in a season with 17. His 51 yarder in the state title game was amazing because we had to use brand new balls that were hard as a rock and cold as ice. Plus he kicked off the ground all season. A first Team All Metro (Richmond area) selection."

The Parade designation is another addition to an impressive resume' for Carter. After helping lead Briar Woods to the schools second consecutive state title, Carter has been named the Gatorade State Player of the Year, Double A All-State by VirginiaPreps.com, and the site's AA Defensive Player of the Year as well. The Stanford commit was a contributor in every facet of Briar Woods' run to a second straight Division 4 title. Carter finished with four interceptions, double digit pass breakups, had 3 defensive or return touchdowns and was among the Falcon leaders in all-purpose yards.

Ever since PARADE selected its first All America High School Football Team in 1963, the magazine has been discovering some of the greatest gridiron legends in history. More details on all of the players selected this year will be available online at parade.com/all-america after Sunday.
