First Published Dec 11 2012 05:02 pm • Last Updated Dec 13 2012 05:22 pm

The moments these athletes produced throughout the 2012 season were priceless.

Whether it was a runaway state title victory or a double-overtime thriller, this year’s MVPs and All-State football players consistently performed at a different level when it mattered most. Some would say it was the year of the quarterback, as four of the five MVPs took their teams to their respective state championship games, but every MVP and All-State player showcased leadership, talent and standards to lead a program with everything on the line.
