9. Glenn Posey, WR, 1987

Posey had the size at 6-feet 3-inches and 170 pounds to be an elite receiver, but his speed (4.7 40-yard dash) dictated a role somewhere else on the field. Posey proved that pure athleticism isn't the only measure of greatness, becoming arguably the state's best possession receiver during his three-year career with the Blue Devils. Posey caught most everything thrown his way and racked up a record 158 receptions, a mark that still tops the 5A Division today. The two-time first-team All-State receiver had 64 catches, 877 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior in 1986, his third straight season leading the AAA-1 Division. At that time, his 2,490 career yards were second all-time to Flowing Wells' Mike Effing. Posey was a Super 11 selection in 1986 alongside the Blue Devils' quarterback Bobby Valdez. Posey's lack of speed limited his Division I potential as he went on to play at NAU. He's now the head coach at Sunnyside and finished 5-5 in his first season in charge of the Blue Devils.
