Burbank’s James Williams, Oharjee Brown and Sebby Santoro received the highest honor in high school football.

Presented by the LA84 Foundation and selected by the Football Coaches Association, the three Bulldogs were recipients of being named All-CIF in the Southeast Division.


Burbank (10-3) advanced to the CIF semifinals where they lost to the eventual CIF champions, La Serna High School. The 10 wins were the most in school history.

Williams (running back) and Brown (wide receiver) were key contributors to the high-flying Burbank offense that averaged 43.8 ppg. Santoro (defensive back) was a stalwart on the defensive side where BHS allowed a paltry 15.6 ppg.

Williams rushed for 1,469 yards on 164 carries and scored a school-record 22 rushing touchdowns. He also added 482 yards receiving on 22 catches including five touchdowns.

Williams recorded an amazing 2,307 all-purpose yards (178 per game) and 29 touchdowns total. The junior will be a highly sought recruit next season.

Brown, a senior, caught 55 passes for 976 yards and 16 touchdowns. He was third on the team with 1,076 all-purpose yards.

Santoro, a senior, recorded 80 tackles on the season (37 solo, 43 assisted).
