OFFICIAL: 2017 All District 25-6A Selections

A district chalk full of talent. This was a tough list for the coaches to collaboratively agree on, but here are your official All District 25-6A honorees.

The coaches of District 25-6A put their collaborative thoughts together, resulting in this official All District 25-6A list.  Congrats to all who made it, and nod of respect to those who feel left off.

DISTRICT 25-6A SUPERLATIVES

District MVP* – RB Nakia Watson (’18), Westlake

With over 2K total yards (1945 rushing, 350 receiving, 33 total TDs), ‘Kiki’ was the unanimous choice for District MVP. Leading his Chaps to its first perfect regular season in years, Wisconsin Football is truly blessed with one of the ATX’s very best.

Offensive MVP* – QB Matthew Baldwin (’18), Lake Travis

The Ohio State signee threw for over 3800 yards and 44 passing TDs with a completion percentage of a ‘Brewer-like’ 72%. Matthew was fleet of foot as well, ranking 2nd on the Cavaliers in rush yards (425) while running for 9 more TDs. In just one full year as Cavs signal caller, Baldwin etched his name in LT fame.

Defensive MVP: DL Braden Cassity (’18), Westlake

Already signed with Oklahoma State, Cassity wrapped up a brilliant Chaps career by logging 100+ tackles and a team leading 13 sacks en route to a State 6A Semifinal berth.

Offensive Newcomer of the Year: ATH Hudson Card (’20), Lake Travis

True definition of a Super Soph, the California native made his home in Lakeway,Texas with a hefty 1100+ yards receiving (13 TDs). Card chipped in at QB when Baldwin needed rest, managing 630+ yards and 7 passing TDs. Hudson also ran for 450+ yards and an additional 6 rushing TDs.

Defensive Newcomer of the Year*: DB Sage Luther (’20), Westlake

Our staff pick for Sophomore DB MVP – Luther’s huge 2017 was not lost on the 25-6A head coaches when making his the district’s top defensive newcomer. With 80 tackles and a team-leading 3 interceptions, look out for #5 over the next two seasons.

Utility Player of the Year: Jamil Pittman (’18), Vista Ridge

A four year starter for Coach Vincent, Jamil saved his most complete performance for last – leading the team in receiving yards (700) and receptions (33), while ranking 2nd on VR in rush yards (520). In all, Pittman accounted for 16 TDs (6 receiving, 8 rushing, 2 passing).

Offensive Lineman of the Year: Garrett Aylor (’18), Westlake

Shout out Book T! When we first met Garrett, he was a freshman with promise at Westwood. Aylor’s all grown up now, with back to back All District 25-6A honors – and earning the ultimate award his senior season – recognized as the top lineman in the entire district. After four years of coverage, we’ll miss you, Garrett.

Defensive Lineman of the Year: Osorachukwu Ifesinachukwu (’18), Vandegrift

Recognized as having the most unique name in all of Texas High School Football – offenses had as tough of a time blocking him as saying Oso’s full name. #9 racked up 120 total tackles (17 TFLs), ranking 3rd on the team. He was the runaway team leader in sacks (14) and QB hurries (17). In a year where 25-6a was stocked with talented linemen – his sheer will and incredible athleticism made him district defensive lineman of the year!

Coach of the Year: Todd Dodge, Westlake

“Experts” called for Westlake Football to fall off a bit after the departure of Ehlinger. Coach Dodge proved that this is a team game, guiding his relatively young Chaps to a perfect 10-0 regular season record. With a nod to his supporting coaching staff, Dodge Ball got in done in ’17.

 

DISTRICT 25-6A FIRST TEAM OFFENSE

QB – Taylor Anderson (’19), Westlake

Playing in all 15 games for Westlake, Anderson took the QB1 reigns from Spring Camp and never looked back. Taylor threw for nearly 2900 yards, tossing 32 TDs in the process. His run game is what took him to the next level – running for over 1K yards and an additional 12 rushing TDs (both ranked 2nd of the team behind Nakia Watson). We’re excited to see Anderson’s encore performance in ’18.

RB* – Thailand Mayberry (’19), Hays

Mayberry accomplished his goal of rushing for over 1K in ’17, despite having to split carries with senior star Cade Powell. There was plenty to go around, as Thailand led the team in rush TDs (10), while ranking 2nd in receiving yards (345 and 2 receiving TDs). #20 will be the focal point of LaHue’s offense in ’18.

RB* – Cade Powell (’18), Hays

Despite ranking 3rd on the team in carries (behind Mayberry & Martinez), Powell averaged a healthy 5.8 yards/carry to rank 2nd of the team in rush yards (580) and tied for the rush TD lead (10).

RB* – Isaiah Smallwood (’19), Vandegrift

Smallwood started all 12 games for Coach Sanders in ’17, resulting in a team leading 1200+ rushing yard season (8 game rushing over the 100 yard mark), with 19 rush TDs. Isaiah proved versatile, with his 2 receiving TDs (on 5 receptions). Smallwood Era is in full swing, with a huge senior campaign expected in ’18.

RB* – Joe Goodwin (’18), Vista Ridge

Goodwin led Coach Vincent’s Rangers in rush yards (705) while contributing 5 total TDs and countless blocks for QB Taute. Easily one of our faves to cover over the years, we’re going to miss Joe.

TE – Bayler Jordan (’19), Hays

Jordan ranked 3rd on the Rebels in receiving yards (340 yards) and tied for the team lead in receiving scores (3). Countless blocks downfield won’t be found in the stat book, but partially credit Bayler’s physical play contributing to the triple headed Rebel rushing monster (Martinez, Powell, Mayberry) going off in 2017.

TE – Kyle Wakefield (’18), Lake Travis

Wakefield’s work as a running back trended upward as the season wore on, leading the Cavs in rush yards (450) while ranking 2nd in rush TDs (6). Kyle’s 9 receiving TDs (on 38 catches/475 yards) proved he could be productive from any position on offense. #6 also chipped in 16 tackles (2 sacks, 3 TFLs), making him Mr. Do It All for Coach Carter’s Cavs.

TE – Justin Edwards (’18), Lehman

Edwards provided veteran leadership for the Lobos, securing 18 receptions for 170 yards during his senior swan song.

WR* – Garrett Wilson (’19), Lake Travis

Racking up 1750+ receiving yards in ’17, the future DI athlete (basketball, football or both) also aded 150 rush yards and tossed two TDs. The Ultimate Swiss Army Knife, we’ll now turn our attention towards Wilson on the basketball court.

WR* – Peyton Ausley (’18), Vandegrift

Ausley left in all on the field his senior year – pacing the team in receptions (74), receiving yards (956) and receiving TDs (11). His two-fourth quarter TD performance versus SA Johnson to seal the Vipers’ playoff victory stands out in our minds – but his entire 3 year body of work as a Viper is what we’ll always remember.

WR – Mason Mangum (’20), Westlake

Our Sophomore WR MVP selection for 2017, Mangum’s performance earned him First Team All District stripes. Mangum led the Chaps with 10 receiving TDs, while ranking 2nd on the team in receptions (43) and yards (725). At this rate, Mason’s trajectory may surpass his older brother’s (former Chap, Max) overall success.

C – Brandon Garcia (’19), Hays

C – Matthew Herrera (’18), Lake Travis

OL – Phil McSorley (’18), Hays

OL – Jaydan Smith (’18), Hays

OL – Dawson Weiss (’20), Lake Travis

OL – Jeremy Kracy (’18), Leander

OL – Wesley Holmes (’18), Vandegrift

OL – Luke Wilkin (’18), Westlake

OL – Luke Armstrong (’18), Westlake

P/K – Cameron Dicker (’18), Lake Travis

A UT Longhorns signee, we saw Cameron score 100+ points via the kick game, averaging a whopping 7 points/game over his 16 game senior season. His long of 53 yards was best in district, knocking in 14 field goals and over 60 XPs. Chances are we’ll see Dicker the Kicker in a few collegiate bowl games (and possibly the NFL).

LS – Kodie Kennedy (’18),  Hays

LS – John Oerhlein (’19), Westlake

DISTRICT 25-6A FIRST TEAM DEFENSE

DL* – Ryan Leal (’18), Hays

Leal notched 57 tackles (1 fumble recovery) en route to the Rebels return to postseason in ’17. District 25-6A coaches unanimously agreed – Ryan was among the best.

DL* – Justin Rodriguez (’18), Hays

Rodriguez was a big part of why Hays dominated games up front. His 48 tackles ranked 7th on the team – but his absorption of opposing offensive lines freed up his teammates to make a slew of plays.

DL* – Kade Langston (’18), Lake Travis

Landhshark, personified. Kade broke the century mark in tackles during his State Finals game v. Allen. His team leading 7 sacks helped guide the team to a third straight 6A State Title game. A Fanstand Fave – we’re really gonna miss having #99 to cover in the coming years.

DL* – Evryn Smith (’19), Vandegrift

Smith was without a doubt one of 2017’s biggest breakouts. Notching 69 tackles during his junior campaign, he was 2nd on the team in sacks (6). Our apologies for time-to-time misspelling his name on a mixtape – but Evryn’s play has etched his football excellence in our memories. With Oso/Gray graduating, look for Smith’s numbers to balloon in ’18.

DL* – William Robertson (’19), Westlake

Way to go, Willie! On a defensive line stocked with studs (Cassity/Neil namely), Robertson’s play still earned him unanimous all district stripes. While his 44 tackles in ’17 aren’t a huge number, his impact allowed other teammates to stack up stats – and the coaches agreed on his first team status.

DE* – David Neil (’19), Westlake

Son of former NFL/collegiate star Dan, David has made a name for himself over the past two seasons. #91 recorded 100+ tackles in ’17 (16 TFLs) and a team leading 13 sacks. Intercepting a pass, and recovering a fumble – we are hoping to see Coach Dodge utilize this versatile talent on the offensive side of the ball in 2018.

DE* – Reid Bacon (’18), Lake Travis

The reigning Cavaliers Homecoming King did it all his senior year. Recording 100+ tackles (6 TFLs and 5.5 sacks). A huge part of the Cavs’ two 6A State Title game runs, Bacon’s production will be tough to fill headed in ’18.

DE* – Myles Hammon (’18), Vandegrift

Another three year Viper starter, Hammon went ‘haam’ his senior season with 65 total tackles (12 TFL), while forcing a team leading 3 fumbles.

LB – Brayden Roeder (’18), Lake Travis

One half of the dynamic Roeder (pronounced ‘reader’) Twins, Brayden’s play certainly stood out – ranking 2nd of the team in total tackles (116, 8 TFLs). Brayden also chipped in 2 fumble recoveries en route to a State Finals appearance in his lone full Cavaliers season.

LB – Alex Hensley (’18), Leander

Despite teams game planning to run away from #24, Alex stil averaged 10+ tackles/game, flying over the century mark for the 2nd straight year. Hensley also led Coach Smith’s Lions in sacks (4). While his First Team selection was for his ’17 accomplishments alone, he (unofficially) registered over tackles over his Lions career. Job well done, Alex.

LB – Spencer Jones (’19), Vandegrift

A future four year Varsity Viper, Jones continued to progress his junior year – ranking 2nd on the team in tackles (136, 11 TFL) averaging 11+/game. #42 five sacks ranked 3rd among Vandy defenders. Sky is truly the limit for Spencer – whom we project to play Division I football someday.

LB – Sam Guzman (’18), Hays

Guzman ranked 2nd of LaHue’s Rebels with 90 tackles – playing in all 11 games and averaging 8+ stops per game. Guzman also registered 2 sacks for the bi-district finalists.

LB* – David Dickerson (’18), Westlake

David led the 25-6A champs in total tackles (127), averaging 8+/game (9 TFLs) while playing in all 15 of the Chaps games. He ranked 2nd in QB Hurries (13) and managed 4 sacks in the process. Arguably the top defense in CenTex, Dickerson earned a unanimous First Team selection for his outstanding senior year showing.

DB* – Nathan Parodi (’18), Lake Travis

Human highlight reel. To say Parodi had an outstanding season could be an understatement. From national headline interceptions, to State Finals record breaking KR TDs, to his team leading 7 interceptions (tying Ausitn Hiller for season record) – Parodi contributed to all 3 phases (104 total tackles, a team leading 400 kick return yards).  Unanimous First Team selection.

DB – Noah King (’18), Leander

King’s 51 tackles ranked 3rd on the team. King also managed to pick off a pass and force a fumble while playing in all 10 of his senior year games. Noah also made a splash on special teams, blocking 2 punts for Smith’s Lions.

DB* – Cole Walther (’18), Vandegrift

Walther Viper Family Dynasty. Cole notched 90 tackles his senior year, while ranking 3rd in pass break ups (5). His ability to defend the pass equally well as stop the run made him a unanimous first team All 25-6A selection.

DB* – Connor Kelley (’18), Westlake

Kelley will make some college coaches very happy on the next level. His 74 tackles ranked 6th on a team full of defensive savages. Kelley (no relation to former Chap Mack) chipped in three sacks, picked off a pass, and ranked 3rd on the team in pass break ups (6).  The results of his stellar play: a unanimous selection as a First Team 25-6A star.

DB – Jonathan Roth (’18), Vandegrift

The definition of a quiet leader. While we didn’t see many shout outs from Roth on mixtapes, we saw a plethora of tackles from #19. Roth led Sanders’ Vipers with 143 stops, averaging a eye-popping 11.9 tackles/game. His four sacks and six pass deflections shows he was playing hard nose defense all over the field.

DB – Matthew Sams (’18), Westlake

Time flies. That former Super Soph who scored a special teams TD in the 2015 State Finals has grown up. In Matthew’s final Chaps season, #31 led Westlake in pass breakups (9), tied for the interception lead (3), doled out 62 tackles while playing in all 15 of Westlake’s 2017 6A State Semifinal-run games. We will miss our friend next year.

DISTRICT 25-6A SECOND TEAM OFFENSE

QB – Justin Moore (’18), Vandegrift

In J-Mo, we trust. #12 had an impeccable QB rating of 101.9 in 2017. Completing 60% of his passes for 2500+ yards and 25 passing TDs. He wasn’t asked to run much, but averaged 7+ yards/carry while scoring 2 rush TDs. We’ll enjoy watching Justin play basketball and baseball this spring – but one wonders what he could have done with a second season as Viper signal caller.

QB – Jacob Taute (’18), Vista Ridge

A three-sport star, we enjoyed watching Jacob have a full run as QB1 in ’17. Jacob threw for 1400+ yards and 13 passing TDs. He was tasked to move the chains with his feet, ranking 2nd of the team in carries (81), averaging 5 yards/carry and adding 4 rush TDs.

RB – Kaleb Priestly (’18), Lehman

Kaleb provided the Lobos with a productive senior leader – averaging 4.9 yards/carry for a team leading 425 yards and 4 rush TDs. He has certainly left Lobo Football a better place. (PC: Will Engleman)

RB – Steven Crider (’18), Westlake

Crider was sneaky good in 2017 – but not so sneaky that the coaches didn’t peg him as an All District caliber player. He “quietly” averaged 5.2 yards/carry and 11 yards/catch for 300 total yards. Even with limited touches (15 catches, 22 rushes), #12 still managed six touchdowns (scoring on 1 out of nearly every 6 touches) – rewarding Coach Dodge whenever he would call his number.

TE – Jackson Oliver (’19), Vandegrift

While Jackson didn’t rack up huge receiving numbers, he used his long athletic frame to manhandle LBs and DEs on run plays for the Vipers. Enough so that the coaches collaboratively chose #30 over several strong candidates.

WR – Nathan Tate (’19), Hays

Nathan showed glimpses of his overall upside in ’17, reeling in 28 catches for 330+ yards in a run heavy offense. With a combo on Young/Martinez returning in ’18, we could see #8 take the next step.

WR – Justin Florence (’18), Vandegrift

An all district hooper, J-Flo made his presence known as a big time receiver in 2017. His 55 catches ranked 2nd on the team. His 690 receiving yards saw him go for better than 12 yards/catch – plus six receiving TDs. #22 was consistent as any WR in the district. We’re just glad to get a full Winter/Spring of hoops from him.

WR – Jamil Pittman (’18), Vista Ridge

WR – Alec Fuentes (’18), Lake Travis

Behind superstar D1 bound Wilson and Card – it was Fuentes who was the most productive LT receiver. Ranking 3rd on the team in receiving yards (630) and receptions (55). His six catch-55 yard effort in the State Finals v. Allen proved he can play with anyone in the State. Not to mention his role in earning LT another State 7×7 Title – job well done, Alec.

WR – Jacob Ramos (’18), Westlake

We recall hearing Sam Ehlinger encouraging Ramos to be more aggressive and confident 2 years back. Ramos took that advice and led the Chaps in receptions (56), receiving yards (850) and ranking 2nd with 8 receiving TDs. We expect Jake’s skill level to continue to rise as he decides which collegiate direction to take.

C – Blake Webster (’19), Westlake

OL – Lyndon Wilson (’18) Hays

OL – Chad Wolf (’19), Lake Travis

OL – Josh Long (’18), Leander

OL – Christian Jean (’19), Lehman

OL – Lucas Webb (’18), Vandegrift

OL – Greer Geracci (’19), Vista Ridge

OL – Victor Sherhart (’18), Westlake

P/K – Alex Stadthaus (’18), Vandegrift

Of Stadthaus’ 2017 kickoffs, 50 resulted in a touchback. Of his 40 punts, he averaged 40.2 yards/punt, placing 11 of them inside the 20 yard line. Racking up 70+ points over the 2017 season, Alex nearly averaged over a TD worth of points per game (6.2). Now just wait until you see him on the basketball court!

P – Jacob Taute (’18), Vista Ridge

K – Gabriel Lozano (’19), Westlake

Lozano averaged over a TD worth of points (7.2) per game for the 14-1 Chaparrals. In a district with an NFL/UT-Longhorn bound kicker, its tough to get recognition. ‘Gabo’ nailed 10 of his 11 FG attempts (long of 40), while knocking down 83 of 84 extra point attempts. Coach Dodge can rest assured he has a good one coming back in ’18.

LS – Diego Costa-Owens (’19), Leander

LS – Chastin Evans (’18), Lehman

Evans averaged 10 yard a grab during a 30 catch senior year campaign for the Lobos.

DISTRICT 25-6A SECOND TEAM DEFENSE

DL – Zane Kuykendall (’18), Hays

Kuykendall ranked 2nd on the Rebels with 4 sacks, racking up 48 tackles en route to a 25-6A bi-district playoff spot. He also picked off a pass and caused two fumbles to ensure his spot on the official all district list.

DL – Kaleb Wenson (’19), Lake Travis

Wenson quickly made a home for himself with the Cavaliers, racking up 88 tackles in his 1st season. He only registered one sack, but he led the team in forced fumbles (2), while deflecting 2 passes and blocking a field goal. Wearing jersey #33 is special at Lake Travis, and we forsee a big jump in production for young Kaleb in 2018.

DL – Terry Maher-McGee (’19), Lehman

Terry’s 3.5 sacks led the Lobos defense, while tallying 35 tackles in the process.  Another young promising Lobo – they’ll need McGee to be at his best to make the postseason in ’18.

DE – Sebastian Monroe (’18), Lake Travis

Monroe was one of five Cavalier defenders to break the 100 tackle mark in 2017 (15 tackles for loss). His five sacks ranked 3rd on the team, while recovering a team high 2 fumbles.

DE – Abel Castro (’18), Leander

Castro rang up 35 tackles and recovered a fumble for the Lions during his senior campaign.

DE – Joshua Weusi-Barrera (’18), Lehman

Joshua saved his best for last, leading the team in tackles for loss (8), ranking 3rd in tackles (60).

LB – Jake Cude (’19), Lehman

Cude had a huge junior year, registering 60 tackles (6 TFLs, tied for 2nd on the team.  Cude also managed an interception and to recover 2 fumbles for the Lobos defense.  He’ll be a key figure once again, headed into ’18.

LB – Oliver Marx (’19), Vista Ridge

Marx led Vincent’s Rangers in tackles (86) as a junior – deflecting 3 passes in the process and recovering a fumble. If VR plans on returning to the postseason in ’18, Marx will be an integral part of the defense.

LB – Jake Ehlinger (’19), Westlake

The younger sibling of UT QB Sam, Jake made a name of his own in ’17. One of four Chaps to go over 100 tackles, Ehlinger also led the team in force fumbles (4), and ranked third in sacks (4). Look for Jake’s star to rise even higher headed into ’18.

DB – Isaiah Jacobs (’18), Hays

Jacobs 65 tackles were good enough for 3rd on the Rebels. And while he didn’t pick off any passes, his six pass deflections tied for 2nd on the team.

DB – Ty Badicong (’18), Lake Travis

Badicong was one of the top defensive performers for LT during the State Championship game vs. Allen – but his performance leading up to that game earning his All District stripes. Ty tied for 2nd on the team in interceptions (3) while deflecting 3 other passes. Notching over 80 tackles on the year, Badicong also registered a sack and 3 QB hurries.

DB – Doak Wilson (’19), Westlake

Doak was one of the more ‘quiet’ breakouts for the Chaps in ’17 – but the foundation is set for a huge follow up. He ranked 3rd on the team in pass break ups (5) while managing 45 tackles (25 of the solo variety). With a motor that doesn’t register on a stat sheet, look for #24 to soar in ’18.

DB – Naequwan White (’19), Vista Ridge

White led the Rangers in interceptions (2) and pass deflections (6) as a junior. His 44 tackles proves he’s not scared to make a hit. He will be an unquestioned leader for Vista headed into ’18.

DB – Keaton Jones (’18), Westlake

Jones broke the 50 tackle mark in ’17, contributing an interception, forced fumble and fumble recovery in ’17.

DB – Michael Jorgensen (’18), Leander

45 tackles, 1 interception, 4 pass break ups, 2 fumble recoveries and an uncountable amount of senior leadership from Jorgensen in 2017.

DISTRICT 25-6A HONORABLE MENTIONS

C – Matthew Sanders (’19), Vandegrift

CB – Mack Parker (’18), Vandegrift

Parker’s willingness to put the team first ultimately helped the Vipers reach another area playoff round. Primarily a RB/WR the prior two seasons, Parker tallied 55 tackles while tying for 3rd in pass break ups (3). Mack still contributed 150+ yards of offense when called upon.

ATH – Reese Watson (’19), Vandegrift

Reese worked as a Swiss Army knife for Coach Sanders – contributing on all 3 phases throughout the season. The dual sport star (basketball) averaged 17+ yards a catch (team leader among Viper receivers with 10+ catches). His receiving yardage ranked 3rd on the team (370), 4th in catches (21) and tied for 3rd in receiving TDs (2). He also led the team in interceptions (2) and pass break ups (7).

DB – Adrian Yanez (’18), Lehman

DB – Collin Swallow (’18), Westlake

Swallow had an outstanding senior year, breaking up 4 passes in 12 games. Collin also picked off two passes and racked up 20 tackles along the way.

DE – Nick Hughes (’18), Vandegrift

Hughes saved his most productive Viper season for last. Registering 30 tackles (2 TFL), Nick tied for 2nd on the team with six sacks. Add on 4 QB hurries, a forced fumble and recovery – it all adds up to Hughes being honored as an All District performer.

LB – Dominic Johnson (’18), Hays

Dominic had a rock star final season as a Rebel football player – leading the team in tackles (98, 19 Tackles For Loss). He also led Hays in sacks (6) and forced fumbles (3).

LB – Mark Purvis (’18), Vandegrift

Game changer. Purvis’ 4 forced fumbles led a stingy Viper defense. His 109 tackles made him one of four Vandegrift defenders to break the century mark in stops. Mark even added an interception – garnering all district honors in his 3rd Viper Varsity campaign.

LS – Carson Cross (’18), Lake Travis

On a team full of utility skill players, Cross held his own. Utilized out the backfield on offset the line of scrimmage as an extra blokcer – Carson managed 17 catches for 200+ yards in ’17. His 3 catch performance in the State Finals vs. Allen quietly kept the chains moving to help put LT in position to make a near storybook comeback. On nearly any other team, Cross would have put up ten fold the numbers. A note not lost on the 25-6A coaches when naming Cross as an All District performer.

LS – Davis Beal (’19), Vandegrift

LS – Gavin Hand (’18), Vista Ridge

OL – Jayelen Gray (’18), Vandegrift

The story of Jayelen will forever be etched in our minds. Beating cancer to return to the playing field.

QB – Xavier Martinez (’19), Hays

‘X’ had the biggest breakout of any Rebel in ’17. His 10 rushing TDs tied fellow breakout Mayberry for the team lead. Xavier ran for over 500 yards, while approaching the 1900 yard mark in passing (adding 11 pass TDs). With Desmond Young returning in ’18 as well, Coach Lahue will be hard pressed to get both X and Des the touches they need. Martinez has earned his opportunity moving forward.

S – Drew Nelson (’19), Vandegrift

Nelson played 8 of Vandegrift’s 12 games in ’17. But his 36 tackles (32 of the solo variety) were enough for the coaches of 25-6A to bestow the returning Viper with an All District designation.

WR – Ryan Merrifield (’19), Vandegrift

Consider this. Merrifield only played 7 Varsity games. But his performance in that short time earned him All District honors. His 26 catches ranked third on the team, at over 10 yards per grab. He only scored once, but with Ausley production walking the stage this Summer – Merrifield could be the next big name Viper wideout.
