-Dakota Thompson (Muhlenberg)
The senior defensive end was a constant presence for the Muhls rock solid defense. His ability to wreak havoc in opponents backfields was second to none this season.

-Connor Morehart (Gov. Mifflin)
Connor had a very good senior season for the Mustangs. He forced and recovered several fumbles and nearly always found himself in the opponents backfield.
-Jake Hess (Muhlenberg)
Jake Hess was one of the anchors on the Muhls defensive line and became a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks.

Blake, much like Jake, was a huge presence for the Muhls line. Devine will be the leader on the Muhls defense next season when he returns for his senior season.
-Daryll Ellison (Muhlenberg)
Ellison was the Muhls leading tackler and seemed to have a nose for the ball. His ability to fight through blocks and seemingly always come up with the big play is his reason for making this list.

Dupell had a Berks-best 7 interceptions in 2013 and was a major part of the Mustangs stellar defense.

-Eli Quinter (Muhlenberg)
