Some view second team as second best.

Here's our thought: With nearly 1.2 million kids playing high school football teams this fall, being named to the second team of RivalsHigh's inaugural All-American team is nearly a one-in-a-million honor.

How good?

These guys not only are highly coveted by major colleges throughout the land, but a handful also figure to be coveted by NFL teams in a few years.

Simply put: These guys are stellar.

2010 Second Team All-American Offense
QB: Kiehl Frazier, Springdale (Ark.) Shiloh Christian
Frazier will leave Arkansas as one of the state's all-time most decorated players. He helped lead Shiloh Christian to another state title this season, completing 63 percent of his passes for 2,975 yards and 42 touchdowns as well as gaining 1,164 yards and 22 touchdowns on the ground. These numbers came despite usually not playing much in the second half of games.

Honorable Mention: Dano Graves, Folsom (Calif.) High; Johnny Manziel, Kerrville (Texas) Tivy

RB: Demetrius Hart, Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips
All Hart did was set a Florida state record with 50 rushing touchdowns on the season and led Dr. Phillips to its first Florida Class 6A state final. One of the best backs in space, Hart also can bang in the middle if needed or catch a pass in the flat. He is a very well-rounded player that has a high ceiling.

HM: Savon Huggins, Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep; Dustin Garrison, Pearland (Texas) High.

RB: Adonis Ameen-Moore, Denver (Colo.) Mullen
Ameen-Moore is a very physical running back that also can pick up blockers if needed. His legs helped carry Mullen to another state title. He piled up 1,774 yards and 26 touchdowns on the season. He is headed to Syracuse University and should bring a winning mentality with him.

HM: Akise Teague, Youngstown (Ohio) Ursuline; Mike Bellamy, Punta Gardens (Fla.) Charlotte.

WR: Stanton Seckinger, Charleston (S.C.) Porter Gaud School
Seckinger nearly made his way onto the first team All-American list with his spectacular senior season. The Clemson soft-commit caught 105 passes for 1,833 yards and 26 touchdowns. The 6-5 player could bulk up and slide into tight end if need be - but he has the speed to stay on the outside.

HM: Max Morrison, Kenton (Ohio) High; Andre Davis, Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson.

WR: George Farmer, Gardena (Calif.) Serra
Farmer was one of two stud receivers for Serra this season and that affected the numbers he put up. But grabbing 65 passes for 1,514 yards and 14 touchdowns is a stellar season for one of the best athletes in the nation. Farmer is a five-star player for the Saints.

HM: Marqise Lee, Gardena (Calif.) Serra; Robert Joseph, Rock Hill (S.C.) Northwestern.

TE: Peter Westerhaus, Chanhassen (Minn.) Holy Family Catholic
Westerhaus could have made the first team All-American list as a utility player as he also stars on defense, but his value as a pass catcher gets him a solidified position. He caught 49 passes for 789 yards and 11 touchdowns as a tight end this season. He will stay home and play at Minnesota.

HM: Ben Koyak, Oil City (Pa.) High; Jace Amaro, San Antonio (Texas) MacArthur

OL: Matthew Hegarty, Aztec (N.M.) High
Hegarty was dominant on both sides of the ball for Aztec as he was credited with 81 pancakes and 75 tackles playing nearly every snap of the season. He will be headed to Notre Dame next season as one of the highest-rated recruits ever to come out of New Mexico.

OL: Tommy Olson, Mahtomedi (Minn.) High
One of the biggest and best in Minnesota is going to stay in state and play at Minnesota, where his dad also played in the 1970s. "The Tank" - as he is called in state - is one of the top-ranked players in Minnesota and has worked hard to gain that reputation.

OL: Jordan Walsh, Glen Ellyn (Ill.) Glenbard West
Walsh is one of the top-rated players in the state of Illinois and is headed out of state to play his college ball at Iowa. Considering what the Iowa coaching staff has been able to do with players of less raw talent, Walsh could one day be an NFL player - and a good one.

OL: Cyrus Hobbi, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro
As Arizona has improved its perception nationally, it has also begun pumping out more and more prospects. Hobbi may be one of the best to come out of the state this year and has been ranked in the Rivals 100 all season. He has all the measurables a college is looking for and will be an asset wherever he chooses to go.

OL: Christian Westerman, Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton
In Arizona, four of the top five best players were offensive linemen in 2010. Westerman was by far the best of them all. Since his sophomore year of high school, Westerman has been a dominant player and that production did not drop off at any point. His size - 6-5, 288 pounds - is ideal for the next level and he should have immediate success.

K: Shawn Moffitt, Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips
Moffitt had one of the biggest legs of any kicker nationally. His ability to boom kicks through the uprights on kickoffs helped his team's defense all season by setting up long fields for the opposition to march across. He also is very accurate on his field goals - a luxury that many teams did not have.

HM: Dallas Stubbs, Gainesville (Fla.) High; Colin Ditsworth, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman
