Here's a closer look at the players named to the first-team defense on The Inquirer's All-Southeastern Pennsylvania football team.

Linemen

Deion Barnes, Northeast. The blue-chip recruit is considering Penn State, Pittsburgh, Michigan and Georgia.

Brandon Chudnoff, George Washington. The hard-nosed end, who switched from tight end to guard on offense, is a Temple recruit.

Ryan Geiger, La Salle. Geiger, also turning heads as a heavyweight wrestler, anchored both lines for the Explorers.

Myles Jackson, West Chester Henderson. At end, the Rutgers recruit notched 80 tackles, five sacks, and one interception.

Shawn Oakman, Penn Wood. Oakman, bound for Penn State, posted 80 stops, including 23 for losses, and 16 sacks.

Linebackers

Amara Kamara, Upper Darby. Kamara, with interest from Temple and Villanova, was credited with 130 tackles, including 19 for losses.

Corey Majors, Neshaminy. The Villanova recruit, who rushed for nearly 500 yards and 12 touchdowns, was involved in 73 tackles.

Ralph Reeves, North Penn. Also a threat at tight end, Reeves was always around the ball and a fierce hitter.

Dom Taggart, North Penn. Taggart, a sure tackler, also rushed for 1,110 yards and caught 30 passes for 577 yards. He totaled 27 TDs.

Defensive backs

Terrell Chestnut, Pottsgrove. Over four seasons, the Pittsburgh recruit, also a quarterback, guided the Falcons to a 43-9 record.

Kevin Forster, La Salle. Smart and poised, he made many big plays as a free safety, receiver, fill-in QB, and return man.

Julien Ireland, Abington. His speed in the back was key for the Ghosts. On offense, he rushed for 1,281 yards and 24 TDs.

Skyler Mornhinweg, St. Joseph's Prep. In a transition year for the Hawks, the Stanford recruit stood out at quarterback and free safety.

Punter

Tyler Kroft, Downingtown East. The Rutgers recruit, who averaged 45.3 yards per punt, caught 30 passes for 545 yards and six TDs.
