Staff report


Guyer’s state championship was cemented by star quarterback Jerrod Heard, and the All-District 5-4A roster reflects the junior’s efforts throughout the season. Heard and the Wildcats were well represented when the all-district team was released.

Heard was named 5-4A’s most valuable player, and Guyer’s John Walsh was chosen as coach of the year.

Lake Dallas was well represented with 5-4A superlatives as well. Senior defensive end Graysen Schantz was named defensive MVP, and lineman Josiah Tauaefa earned defensive sophomore of the year honors.

Schantz won newcomer of the year last year, when Heard was named the offensive newcomer of the year.

Ryan sophomore offensive lineman Dakota Laws was one of three players named District 5-5A’s offensive newcomer of the year. Coppell defensive end Solomon Thomas and wide receiver Jacob Logan were named co-MVPs. Logan received the honor posthumously, after his death in October.

In District 9-3A, Krum coach Gary Robinson’s staff was named co-coaching staff of the year after leading the Bobcats to the playoffs and a second-place district finish in the team’s inaugural UIL season.

Argyle was plastered all over the District 10-3A superlatives list. Junior Ian Sadler was named the district’s MVP. Sophomore running back Nick Ralston was named the offensive player of the year, and juniors Sam Sizelove (linebacker) and Connor Wilson (defensive back) were named co-defensive players of the year.

Argyle senior Tanner Fought earned offensive lineman of the year honors, while junior Colton Hinnrichs was named utility player of the year. Head coach Todd Rodgers led the district’s coaching staff of the year.

Sadler, Ralston, Sizelove and Wilson were all unanimous choices for their honors.

In District 5-2A, Pilot Point senior Fred Roman was named newcomer of the year. All the other superlatives were held by Callisburg and Whitesboro.
