Instead, he suffered a loss to Martinsburg.
During his sophomore year, German played for Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, Md., and the Patriots dropped an 11-7 decision to the Bulldogs on a Thursday night during Martinsburg's first championship season in 2010.
Although he enjoyed his time at Thomas Johnson, between his junior and senior years German's family, with roots in Martinsburg, moved back to the Eastern Panhandle, and German became a Bulldog. Welcomed by some old friends on the team, his career took off.
"Since we moved back, everything has been great," German said.
"Winning two titles and now winning the Hunt Award, everything's worked out fine."
Winning the Hunt Award brought the year to a crescendo for German.
"This season couldn't have been any more successful than it was," he said. "I want to thank all of my coaches and thank God for this opportunity."
Walker thinks it's only the beginning for the 6-foot-5, 260-pound German.
"I think he has a lot of potential," Walker said. "With his frame, he's going to be able to put on 40 pounds. He'll be a great player, because he's a great athlete. He's got long arms. He's a good pass-blocker.
"The sky's the limit for him if he works hard."
Other finalists for the award were Gage Gould of Cabell Midland, Adam White of Morgantown and Anthony Bryant of Wayne.
"He's a good student, and a kid with great character," Walker said. "He's a great player, but even a greater person."
