The Mocorunning.com Boys All-Freshman Team is composed of a Freshman of the Year and the next ten talented young athletes with the most potential to be future stars. Results from indoor and outdoor track were used to assess the freshmen for this team (cross country season has its own All-Freshman Team). Additional bright young athletes are included as honorable mention.
