2022 Fall All-Met: Football defense first team, second team, honorable mentions


The following student-athletes were selected for the Washington Post’s 2022 All-Met Team for soccer defense:

Jason Moore, DL, Sr., DeMatha

A game wrecker on the defensive line, Moore is often shunned by running backs and quarterbacks.

At 6ft 6 and 270 pounds, he was the terrible face of a Stags defense that only allowed five points a game.

TJ Bush, DL, Sr., Freedom (Woodbridge)

Greer accumulated 112 tackles that fall and had 12 total touchdowns: seven on special teams, four on offense, and one on an interception return.

Nyckoles Harbor II, DL, Sr., Archbishop Carroll

One of the most in-demand recruits in the country, Harbor capitalized on his athletics as a star. He played the tight end and defensive end, finishing with three sacks, two fumble recoveries and a blocked punt for the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference Metro Division champions.

Kendall Johnson, LB, Sr., Quince Garden

The Duke commit made game after game at both linebacker and tight end for the Cougars, including a game-winning fumble recovery for a touchdown in the Maryland 4A title game.
