The 6-foot, 195-pound free safety used his speed to blanket receivers and knock away passes and his strength to deliver bone-rattling blows, a powerful combination that made him a clear choice for Bay Area News Group defensive player of the year.

“Ten is legit,” Folsom coach Paul Doherty said after his team stunned De La Salle 28-27 in the NorCal regionals. “Ten is the best player in NorCal. He’s incredible.”

Berry finished with 35 tackles, forced two fumbles, and had an interception. He accounted for nearly 400 yards rushing and receiving in spot duty on offense. He returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, including one to open a regular-season game at Folsom in October that De La Salle won 31-10.
