Gilmer head coach Alan Metzel, "Rohan Fluellen grew up a "field house rat." With older brothers playing for the Buckeyes, Rohan has been a regular at 2-A-Days for years. Now it is his time to shine as a three-way starter (offense/defense/special teams) where he is a difference maker in each area. His football intelligence is off the charts. His ball skills are tremendous as well."

Daingerfield head coach Davin Nelson, "Dee Lewis has truly been a pleasure to coach. He is one of those kinds of athletes that every coach hopes to work with at some point in their career. Respectful and polite to coaches and patrons, and vicious on either side of the ball against any opponent."

Beckville football coach Cody Ross, "As a coach you hope to have a chance to coach kids who love to compete and who are completely coachable and are incredible people. Ryan Harris is a young man that fits all of those things and more. He's a winner, in football and in life and will always find a way to win. He's made me a better coach and what a ride it's been. I could not be prouder of him; I love that kid."

Mr. Iron Man

Dawson Pendergrass, 6-3, 212, Jr., RB, Mineola

195-carries for 2,004-yards, 26-TD's, 17-catches for 356-yards, 4-TD's, 47-Tackles, 3-Interceptions, 1-Defensive TD, (missed 2 1/2-games with injury).

Mineola head coach Luke Blackwell, "Dawson is a special kid and special talent for us. He is a high character kid and unquestioned leader in our athletic program. Dawson is one of the hardest working and most competitive athletes I've ever coached and is so deserving of every special recognition and accolade that he receives!"

Brandon Tennison, Sr., QB, Gilmer

262-381 passing for 3,877-yards, 36-TD's, 88-carries for 468-yards, 2-TD's. District Overall MVP.

Gilmer head coach Alan Metzel, "Brandon Tennison was the epitome of a field general for the Gilmer Buckeyes the last two seasons. He led the right way: hard work, selflessness, investing in his teammates and always wanting what was best for the team."

Defensive Player of the Year

Kip Lewis, 6-2, 200, Sr., LB, Carthage

Graded-90% for offense that averaged 500-yards and 40-points per game, 58-Knockdowns. District Offensive Lineman of the Year.

Chapel Hill head coach Jeff Riordan, "Keviyan is a rare talent as a 6'5" DE/LT that can run a 4.7 40 and poster dunk a basketball. He is a great kid with all the intangibles you want in an athlete. Hard worker with great character."

Defensive Lineman of the Year

Derrick Brown, 6-4, 215, Sr., DE, Texas High

Texas High head coach Gerry Stanford, "Over the last 3-years Derrick has played some really high-level football that put himself in position to be one of the top-rated edge rushers in the country. His ceiling to continue to improve is going to allow him to do great things at Texas and he has that unique skill set of height, arm length, speed, and violence."

Special Teams Player of the Year

Jackson Richardson, 6-4, 175, Sr., KR/PR, Tatum

1-KR for TD, 1-PR for TD, 2-Blocked FG's, 2-Blocked Punts and handled 100% of the deep snapping duties for punts, XP's, and FG's. District Utility Player MVP.

Tatum football coach Jason Holman, "Jackson Richardson is a great example of what an outstanding work ethic does for a young man. From the time I arrived at Tatum, he put his head down, went to work, and made himself into the player he is today. Great young man and well deserving of the honor."

Offensive Newcomer of the Year

Demetrius Brisbon, 6-1, 175, Fr., QB, Chapel Hill

69-129 passing for 1,001-yards, 11-TD's, 121-carries for 1,357-yards, 17-TD's. Offensive Newcomer of the Year.

Coach of the Year

Jeff Riordan, Head Coach, Chapel Hill

Riordan took over a program with championship pedigree but one that had just six wins over the three previous years when he arrived in 2020. Chapel Hill has two state championships in their history, 1989 and 2011 and a finalist appearance in 2010.

Riordan led the Bulldogs to a magical run to the semifinals before gut-wrenching loss to Austin L.B.J. in the final seconds and Riordan said, "what made this team special was how we rode the waves of emotions and the ups and downs and took on and survived whatever adversity we faced, including the three-game losing streak early in district play. We as a program were so resilient including everyone, coaches and players rising to the occasion when we went with a freshman quarterback during our loss to Palestine. And we found new energy and the ability to raise our level every week and I'm not sure we ever actually reached our peak and still were so close to playing for a state championship."
