Parade Names Booker Its Co-Player of Year

Record-setting tailback Lorenzo Booker of Ventura St. Bonaventure joins Houston Madison quarterback Vincent Young as Parade magazine's national high school co-players of the year.

Booker, who holds California state career records for rushing (8,502 yards), touchdowns (137), rushing touchdowns (131) and points scored (882), was joined on the 55-member team by seven other California players, including three from Long Beach Poly. Booker led the Seraphs to 42 consecutive victories and three consecutive Southern Section Division XI titles.

Young, who passed for 2,400 yards and 31 touchdowns this season, is joined at quarterback by Ben Olson of Thousand Oaks and Trent Edwards of Los Gatos.

Linemen on the team include Winston Justice of Poly, Nathan Rhodes of East Bakersfield and Derek Landri, who was Concord De La Salle's only player on the team and selected lineman of the year for his play on both sides of the ball. Cornerback Darnell Bing and tight end Marcedes Lewis of Poly were also selected to the team, which will be published in Sunday's edition.
