Already named D-MVP before the State Quarterfinals, Williams performance vs. Hendrickson and Allen may have earned him overall District 13-6A honors.

The senior leader of one of the State's most underrated 6A offensive lines was not overlooked by the coaches of 13-6, earning unanimous honors as the district's top lineman.

Kampfer quickly silenced preseason Mavericks QB controversy talk with outstanding play though the '17 season. Watch out for Zane in Year Two.

A newcomer in the truest sense, Bishop skyrocketed from a DB with upside to the district’s top defensive newcomer!  DEFENSIVE NEWCOMER MVPDB Keilin Bishop (’19), Stony Point
The Raider defensive coordinator in 2016, Coach Robinson moved up after Shawn Bell left for Baylor. All Coach Robinson did was lead CR to consecutive district titles and program history by reaching the Final Four. Stocked with returning talent, the sky's the limit in '18.

DISTRICT 13-6A FIRST TEAM OFFENSE

Having possibly the most magical night of any single Austin-area player in the regional semifinals – the complete composition of Coss’ incredible senior campaigned earned him First Team honors. Coss totaled 3K total yards (2400+ pass, 500+ rush yards) to go along with 32 total TDs (27 passing).  QB – Ezekiel Coss (’18), Cedar Ridge
The kid who broke out en route to a State Quarterfinal in ’16, ascended even higher as the stabilizer of a Dragons offense en flux through the early going. O’Keefe will be a District MVP candidate in ’18. He rushed for over 1k yards, and threw for over 800 yards – QBRyan O’Keefe (’19), Round Rock
We remember DJ instantly becoming a star his Sophomore year. He became the power/speed back combo that the Hawks rode to the State Quarterfinals in ’17 (over 1500 rush yards). His quiet demeanor hides a gridiron beast.  RB*Dana ‘DJ’ Jackson, III (’18), Hendrickson
Its quite remarkable what Brown ha accomplished over his first two seasons. But his 15 rush TDs and 600+ total yards earned Brown his 2nd all district designation in two years. – RB*Marquis Brown (’19), Round Rock
PC: Lindsey Thomas
A State champion in Louisiana in 2016, Thomas blessed the Warriors his senior year by nearly eclipsing 1500 receiving yards (good for 2nd most in the area). Over the Summer, he helped the Warriors to back to back State 7×7 Championship brackets.  WR*Cameron Thomas (’18), Westwood
1200+ yards, and 20+ TDs in 2017. The Baylor commit cemented his name as one of the State’s top flight wide receivers – with a slew of highlight reel catches and mixtape spotlights that we kept hitting replay on. More offers will pour in over the next year. – WR* – Jaylen Ellis (’19) Cedar Ridge
His insane versatility had many Maverick fans rooting for Jordan to play QB. But Jordan’s D1/potential NFL future lies at wideout – which Kerley excelled at for McMahan’s Mavs. Jordan nabbed over 70 catches en route to a 1k+ yards receiving season. In addition to his 12 TD receptions, he also ran for 100+ yards. Watch out in ’18. WRJordan Kerley (’19), McNeil
The Incarnate Word baseball commit made his football presence felt in 2017, helping lead the Tigers to back to back area round appearances. While he may well end up in the MLB one day, we enjoyed watching Williams tear it up on the turf. 27 receptions for nearly 400 yards and 5 TDs for #15 in 2017.  TEJaylen Williams (’18), Stony Point

C – Sergio Colis (’18), Stony Point

We were extremely happy to see the coaches of 13-6A reward the understated (yet uber talented) Klotz with First Team honors. Klotz breakout senior year helped QB Kampfer ascend quickly. C – Zach Klotz (’18), McNeil
A unanimous selection as a junior, Trey is already a superstar among linemen in the Austin area. Brash, confident and talented – we could see RB Deuce Vaughn run gain 2000 yards in ’18 behind Womble and company.  OG*Trey Womble (’19), Cedar Ridge

OG – Kevin Calderon (’18), Stony Point

A stud in the classroom and on the field – Jakob overcame a tough injury during Spring camp to produce a First Team senior effort for the area finalist Tigers. – OGJakob Hall (’18), Stony Point

OT* – Dewayne Brown (’19), Cedar Ridge

Easily one of our favorite personalities of any lineman in the area, Hill was a team-first young man. Even on hand during Summer 7×7 play, Eric lived and breathed McNeil Football, and his play netted him all district honors.  OT Eric Hill (’18), McNeil
Roberts breached the 60 point barrier in ’17, nailing 47 of 49 extra points, while going 7-8 on field goals (long of 38 yards) in ’17. The Warriors continue to crank out all district kickers. – KKaeden Roberts (’18), Westwood

DISTRICT 13-6A FIRST TEAM DEFENSE

Edge’s aggressiveness first turned out heads when he was a Sophomore. He refined his game even more as a junior, causing fear among opponents. We fully expect him to become a D1 force, and his First Team nod as a junior is a positive sign. – DE*Edgerrin Dillard-Williams (’19), Cedar Ridge
He did it for the Brotherhood. While teammate Ekpe was missed on this list, lets use this moment to give a nod to JP for making it impossible to block the Hawks ends. But the coaches certainly didn’t overlook Young’s dominance as a junior. This is an All State caliber player, returning for more in ’18. – DECurley Young, Jr. (’19), Hendrickson
Tahj was an absolute beast for CR in ’17. And while his sack numbers may not be as gaudy as his outside mates Daymond/Edge, a good number of their sacks came from lines trying to clamp down inside to contain Tahj. A skill set that was not overlooked by the 13-6A coaches, earning #43 unanimous first team stripes. – DT*Tahj Williams (’18), Cedar Ridge
This marks back to back all district nods for Roberts, who returns for his senior campaign in 2018. He recently broke a weight lifting record held by former Hawk (current NFL starter) Samaje Perine, and yes higher accolades. Shaylon was a shoe in unanimous decision.  DT*Shaylon Roberts (’19), Hendrickson
2016’s District Defensive Newcomer of the Year continued to shine in 2017, earning all district stripes. Also a big part of the Raiders’ State 7×7 run, Byers pass and run defense were integral parts of CR’s 6A State Final Four run. – ILB*Jaimon Byers (’18), Cedar Ridge
Styles is a big reason why the Hawks feel they can repeat their success of 2017. With Styles roaming and linebacker, opposing teams were hard pressed to get anything on the ground. Coaches noticed all season long, earning Styles a coveted all 13-6A spot. – ILB* Clifton Styles (’19), Hendrickson
Burkley’s monster performance versus Hendrickson was his most memorable game, but #5 was a rock for the Ridge’s LB core in ’17. In a district rich with tackling machines, Colby was a unanimous first team selection. – OLB* – Colby Burkley (’18), Cedar Ridge
If the Tigers wish to reach the area finals for a third consecutive season, you’ll see Williams help lead the charge. He excelled in both pass and run situations, and gives the Tigers a rangy athletic leader headed into ’18. – OLBCameron Williams (’19), Stony Point
A three year impact player, Washington saw it all come together en route to anchoring a stingy Raider backfield. After the loss of both Peterson Brothers, Jalen’s veteran presence (along with Duvon Jones) steadied CR pass defense. He sustained a tough injury versus Allen, but is recovering well, and deserves some collegiate looks as we head into Spring. – CB*Jalen Washington (’18), Cedar Ridge

CB – Kobe Sterling (’19), Stony Point

Heart. Talent. Leadership. Since bursting onto the scene as a brash young DB in ’15, Tobias developed into one of the strongest leaders of any Austin-area school. His ferocious approach to the game couple with his high football IQ, Harris was an unquestioned addition to this esteemed list. – S*Tobias Harris (’18), Hendrickson
Like teammate Ezekiel, Duvon is the son of a CR coach. Having success his junior year, we noticed significant jumps in skill set over the Summer 7×7 ’17 season – and that translated into Jones’ all district senior campaign. Well deserved. – SDuvon Jones (’18), Cedar Ridge

KR/PR – Tobias Harris (’18), Hendrickson

Cousins was important in so many ways to Hendrickson this year, and we were glad to see a first team designation for the returning Hawk. Rather it was time filled in a QB, or putting his incredible defense in position with his well placed punts – we’re excited to have this all district honoree returning in ’18. – PAdam Cousins (’19), Hendrickson

ALL DISTRICT 13-6A SECOND TEAM OFFENSE

A dual sport star (baseball), Barker used that strong infield arm to whip the ball across the turf for the State Quarterfinalist Hawks. Suffering an arm injury versus Sachse, we weren’t able to see a full strength Barker versus Cedar Ridge in Week Fifteen – but we will certainly be watching Blaine on the diamond this Spring and headed into (what should be) a magical senior year of football. – QBBlaine Barker (’19), Hendrickson
The opportunity for Donovan to have full reigns of the Tigers offense was well overdue – and it was refreshing to see him get his shot as a senior. Impressive from the jump, Rybachek helped lead Chessher’s Cats to another area round appearance in ’17. – QBDonovan Rybachek (’18), Stony Point
‘Lean on Leo’ was our battle cry as we watched Dugue (pronounced doo-gey) excel in Spring Camp/Summer 7×7. That’s exactly what the Mavs did this Fall, letting Leo lead the way. Totaling over 900 total yards of offense for Coach McMahan, we senior salute Dugue on a strong Varsity career. – RBLeo Dugue (’18), McNeil
A four year Varsity starter. Jaikem played both sides of the ball well, and we will certainly miss seeing #30 on the field. As equally good natured as talented, Murphy will go down as a Fanstand All-Time favorite. He helped lead the Warriors to their first playoff appearance since 2014 (a team he was a member of as a freshman). – RBJaikem Murphy (’18), Westwood
When defenses game planned for Round Rock, they circled #30 on the board. Despite that, Pena was able to rack up nearly 700 yards, despite the offense not staying on the field for long stretches. His body of work included shouldering a 2016 State Quarterfinals run – and one can only wonder what Malik could have done with another shot at postseason play. RBMalik Pena (’18), Round Rock
One of the area’s biggest personalities, we remember a young Pickett breaking out as a sophomore versus Connally in his first Varsity start. Fast forward three years later, Treshon has given us so many great football memories. Excited to see where he winds up playing on Saturdays.  WRTreshon Pickett (’18), Stony Point
One of the most coveted wideouts in the nation as a sophomore, Sullivan’s performance statistically this year may have fell short of what some expected after his fantastic freshman debut. Despite the fluctuation at QB, Sullivan still led the team with 500+ receiving yards on just 32 catches (averaging nearly 17 yards/catch). With Trevor Waz/Ryan O’Keefe returning in ’18, look for Sullivan’s numbers to triple up next season. – WRCollin Sullivan (’20), Round Rock
PC: Lindsey Thomas
One could argue that Westwood’s Lindley was the district’s best sophomore over the season. Nabbing 40 catches for nearly 400 yards, Ryan went from a Summer 7×7 surprise to a lethal weapon for Coach Wood. Sky is the limit for #2 through the next two years. – WRRyan Lindley (’20), Westwood
The Panthers didn’t win as many games as planned, but the future on the outside looks bright with the emergence of the energetic Washington. A match up problem for any defensive backfield, finding a QB who can vibe with Washington should be the Panthers’ new head coach priority going into ’18. – WR – Casey Washington (’19), Pflugerville
Dejan contributed on both sides of the ball for Pville in ’17, and will be a major part of the game plan for whomever comes in and takes the Panthers into the new year. His work run blocking is heralded, but his 5 receiving TDs in ’17 show signs of much more heading into next season. – TEDajan Henderson (’19), Pflugerville
The younger brother of former all district Dragon Grant – Garrett certainly made a name for himself, nabbing 25 receptions for nearly 400 yards. #33 figures to make a huge leap when he returns in ’18 – TEGarrett Miller (’19), Round Rock
A team captain, and bloodline Warrior (older bro Travis was a star Westwood wideout), the youngest Dale did the family name proud in ’17. Even working as the good luck center during WW’s back to back State 7×7 appearances, Riley’s protecting of QB Jennings was a key to getting the Warriors back to postseason. He will leave big shoes to fill. – C – Riley Dale (’18), Westwood

OG – Jace Wooten (’19), Pflugerville

OG – Jace Chambers (’19), Hendrickson

OT – James Jarmon (’19), Westwood

OT – Tobias Campbell (’20), Round Rock

K – Ross Hinds (’18), Stony Point

ALL DISTRICT 13-6A SECOND TEAM DEFENSE

DE – Mike Bell (’18), Round Rock

Labouve made an impact whenever on the field. Rather impacting special teams with a block or downing the ball inside the five, or coming in and adding extra edge rush at defensive end, Victor had an outstanding senior year.  DEVictor Labouve (’18), Hendrickson

DE – Sam Latham (’19), McNeil

Pitts performed well when on the field, ranking second on the Tigers in tackles (55) despite only playing in 7 games. The senior Tiger also added 3 sacks for the 13-6A area finalists.  DEEthan Pitts (’18), Stony Point
When opposing teams looked across the line and saw Shaylon and Makody, that marveled at their size. Guess what? Those two return in ’18, and make Hendrickson an immediate State contender. Robertson is primed to lead after a standout junior year.  DT Makody Robertson (’19), Hendrickson

DT – Jarod Ontiveros (’19), Stony Point

While the Mavericks at times had trouble on defense, Broadhead was a bright spot for McNeil.  ILBBranden Broadhead (’18), McNeil
The true definition of a breakout, RJ lead the Tigers in tackles his senior season despite only playing 7 games.  ILB – Robert ‘RJ’ Deaver (’18), Stony Point
McKeel brought balance to a young Hawks defense, helping round out one of the better 6A defensive units in the State.  ILB – Anthony McKeel (’18), Hendrickson
With 100+ tackles in 2017, Hamilton went haam for Defensive Coordinator Coss and helped clog the middle when offenses chose to stay away from Williams/Williams on the outside. Nathan’s sure-style tackling couldn’t be overlooked as the coaches constructed the all district honorees.   ILB – Nathan Hamilton (’18), Cedar Ridge
The Brown University commit had a brilliant 3 year Hawks career. Dozens of big hits, forced turnovers and on-field leadership. We witnessed one of the best LBs to play for the Hawks since we started our coverage in 2010.  OLBClayton Perrin (’18), Hendrickson

OLB – Jaedon Proctor (’18), Pflugerville

We have been huge fans of Myles since seeing him in Summer 7×7 action as a sophomore. Fast forward to today, he’s a two-time all district Hawk. Coming back with a host of young talent in ’18, Hendrickson will have a serious squad with a senior version of Brooks. Oh yeah….he hoop, too.  CBMyles Brooks (’19), Hendrickson
The stress of playing for your dad when he’s the team’s head coach can be a bit much. However, Cory rose to the occasion, notching back to back all district seasons.  With two offers (and more possibly on the way), Cory has some collegiate decisions to make.  CB – Cory McMahan (’18), McNeil

S – Kytani Miller (’18), Stony Point

The future D1 safety has been a pleasure to watch over the past two seasons, shining in his 3 year Varsity stint with the Mavericks.  Will was also a two time All Academic athlete. SWill Kohman (’18), McNeil
Earning all district honors for the 2nd straight year, O’Bannon goes for the hat trick in ’18 for Coach Chessher and a Tigers team that will need more from Tyler on offense in the new year.  KR/PRTyler O’Bannon (’19), Stony Point

P – Jack Landry (’18), Stony Point
