Viles, a two-year starter, finished with 2,948 yards passing, 28 touchdowns and six interceptions this year for Sunset League champion Edison.
His 5,230 career yards are second-all time at Edison to Brian Shrock, who had 6,374 from 2003-05. Viles’ 49 career touchdown passes are second to Shrock’s career total of 50 and Viles’ 28 this year are also second in Chargers history (Tommy Grady, 33, 2001). He also owns the single-game school record of 485 yards set this year against Dana Hills.
“He had a great year and he’s just a great person,” Edison Coach Dave White said. “Teams know that we’ve got a passing attack and he still put up those numbers.”
Middlebrooks also rewrote the Barons’ record books. He had 1,875 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns, both marks breaking his own school record.
“Being a team sport, Kyle would be the first to say his success was all predicated on his teammates,” Coach John Shipp said. “That being said, he’s a special talent. He has the football IQ to do things that not many people can do. It’s great for him [to get Offensive Player of the Year] because he earned it. He’s a class act and he’s got a bright future.”
Zumwalt, the Stanford commit and linebacker, averaged nearly 14 tackles a game. He had more than 20 tackles in wins over Newport Harbor and Los Alamitos, as well as 25 in the Pac-5 title game loss to Servite.
“He’s definitely one of the best ever defensive players at Edison High,” White said.
“He missed two games but all the big games he was huge. He’s a great athlete and everything you want in a linebacker.”
