The 12-member first-team features four players from Florida, three each from California and Texas and two from Arizona. Only players from winter-season teams are eligible. ESPN RISE named fall and spring All-America teams for those respective seasons.

Juan Gutierrez guided JSerra to a section crown and Reed Williams of Corona del Mar did one better – a section crown and region title (California’s highest level of play). Mark Daus, George Malki, Max Rockwell, Wes Sever and Josh von Allworden each helped their teams to state titles.

The following are player bios on the 12 members of the ESPN RISE Winter All-America team and the Coach of the Year.

F: Miles Byass, Redlands (Redlands, Calif.), Sr.
Byass, a youth national team member, returned to high school play this past winter and delivered a 30-goal season en route to being named the San Bernardino County Player of the Year. He was a CIF Division III first-team selection. He signed with San Diego State.

F: Juan Gutierrez, JSerra (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.), Jr.
Gutierrez was the Orange County Register and CIF Southern Section Offensive Player of the Year after leading JSerra to the Division I title and a Southern Regional semifinal appearance. Gutierrez finished with 22 goals and scored seven game-deciding goals.

F: Wes Sever, Tampa Prep (Tampa, Fla.), Sr.
Sever, a George Mason signee, scored 14 of his 32 goals in the playoffs as Tampa Prep claimed its third title in four years. Sever was a Tampa Tribune first-team selection.

F: Reed Williams, Corona del Mar (Newport Beach, Calif.), Sr.
Despite missing time due to injury, Williams, a UCLA signee, netted 32 goals to lead Corona del Mar to the CIF Division IV and CIF-Southern Region titles. He scored twice in the team’s 3-2 win over JSerra in the section semifinals then netted the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Santa Barbara for the title.

MF: Zach Barnes, Marcus (Flower Mound, Texas), Sr.
Barnes scored 15 goals and was selected by the coaches as the Texas District 6-5A offensive MVP. The Southern Methodist signee was a first-team selection by the Dallas Morning News.

MF: George Malki, Pinnacle (Phoenix, Ariz.), Sr.
Malki, a U.S. under-18 national pool member, was a driving force in Pinnacle’s 25-1-1, state title-winning season. The Cal Poly signee scored 19 goals and added 10 assists. He was a first-team All-State selection by the Arizona Republic.

MF: Max Rockwell, Mitchell (New Port Richey, Fla.), Sr.
Rockwell was named the St. Petersburg Times all-North Suncoast Player of the Year after helping Mitchell to the program’s first state title. The Southern Methodist University signee led the team with 19 assists.

MF: Ben Sweat, Palm Harbor University (Palm Harbor, Fla.), Sr.
Sweat, a South Florida signee, had 22 goals and 11 assists while leading Palm Harbor University to a Class 6A runner-up finish. Sweat was named the St. Petersburg Times All-Pinellas County Player of the Year.

D: Mark Daus, Jesuit (Dallas, Texas), Sr.
Daus, an all-tournament selection during the Texas 5A state playoffs, spent time at midfield and on defense leading Jesuit to a state title and a FAB 50 No. 1 ranking. He was named the District 8-5A MVP and was a first-team Dallas Morning News all-area selection. Daus signed with Santa Clara.

D: Sebastian Ibeagha, Hightower (Missouri City, Texas), Sr.
Duke signee Ibeagha was named the District 23-5A MVP, which is a rare feat for a defender to be picked as the district’s overall MVP. He guided Hightower to a second-place district finish, the best-ever showing for this program.

D: Josh von Allworden, Corona del Sol (Tempe, Ariz.), Sr.
Von Allworden not only was a lock-down defensive player, but a scoring threat, as well. The Oregon State signee netted 14 goals and had six assists. His play helped Corona del Sol to an Arizona state title, and along the way the team posted 15 shutouts. He was a first-team All-State selection by the Arizona Republic.

GK: Eric Reyes, University (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), Sr.
Reyes, a member of the Puerto Rican under-21 national team pool, had an eye-popping 0.11 goals against average. He allowed only three goals during the season, and also got some field time where he scored a goal and had four assists. Reyes signed with UC-Santa Barbara.

Coach: Hubie Collins, Jesuit (New Orleans, La.)
After losing eight starters from last year’s Louisiana state championship and FAB 50 No. 1 team, this was pegged as a rebuilding year for Jesuit. Instead, the program built on its dynasty. Jesuit finished 30-0-1 in 2010, pushing its national-best undefeated streak to 63 matches entering the 2010-2011 campaign. Along the way, Jesuit posted shootout victories over Florida state champions Melbourne and Bishop Verot. In eight seasons as Jesuit’s head coach, Collins sports an eye-popping 229-6-9 record.
