West Potomac, Hayfield players tapped for first-team All-Occoquan Region honors

Daiimon Cleveland run

Daiimon Cleveland, seen running over a tackler during West Potomac’s win over Lake Braddock in September, was a first-team all-region selection.

Hayfield, Mount Vernon and West Potomac were well-represented on the 2017 All-Occoquan Region football team, including four players who earned 1st-team all-region selections.

West Potomac senior offensive tackle Bailey Iboleon, senior running back Daiimon Cleveland and senior linebacker Zack Monson were all first-team selections for the Wolverines. 

Monson was also the runner-up defensive player of the year in the Occoquan Region, and was named second-team all-region tight end. Monson had previously been named the 2017 Gunston District Defensive Player of Year. 

Other Wolverines making the second team included senior defensive back Marquise Groomes, senior wide receiver De Andre Webb, and senior defensive lineman Jay Holzworth

Hayfield senior wide receiver Brian Cobbs, the Gunston District’s offensive player of the year, was a first-team All-Occoquan Region pick at wide receiver. Cobbs, who also saw time at quarterback and wide receiver en route to leading Hayfield to a district championship, has committed to play for the University of Maryland next year. 

Hayfield landed three players on the second-team All-Occoquan Region offense, including senior center Ben Miles, junior lineman Javier Oliver and senior kick returner Jaivon Pailin. Three Hawks were second-team selections on defense as well: senior defensive lineman Jimmori Robinson, senior defensive end Stephen King and junior defensive back Jayden Lenore.

Mount Vernon had five players receive second-team all-region honors, including senior quarterback Tim Heltzel, senior linebacker Jason Lewis, junior punter Scott Burns, sophomore running back Jordyn Reid, and senior all-purpose back Darrien Newton.
