Kilgore middle linebacker A.J. Davis earned overall Most Valuable Player honors, while Henderson athlete Patrick “Monsta” Brown and Gilmer defensive tackle Xavier Fluellen were named Offensive MVP and Defensive MVP, respectively. Gilmer sophomore running back Kris Boyd was named Offensive Newcomer of the Year, and Gladewater sophomore defensive tackle Daylon Mack was Defensive Newcomer of the Year.

District coaches conducted the voting.

Davis (6-0, 220) received the district’s top award following a senior season that saw him accumulate 154 tackles, 12 for loss, two sacks, one interception, and two forced fumbles. Davis was the backbone of a Kilgore defense that held opponents to 11.1 points per game, including a mark of 9.3 in the Bulldogs’ first 12 contests. Kilgore went 11-2 and finished as a Class 3A Division I state semifinalist.

Brown (5-10, 175) took a mid-season position change in stride and excelled, accumulating 2,329 yards of total offense and accounting for 27 touchdowns three ways: 19 rushing, three passing, three punt returns, two receiving. Brown helped Henderson finish 9-5 with a Class 3A Division II Region II final appearance.

Fluellen (6-1, 260) anchored a Gilmer defense that helped the Buckeyes reach the 3A Division II state championship, Gilmer’s fourth title-game appearance since 2004. Fluellen finished second on the team with 113 tackles, four sacks, five forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.

Boyd (5-10, 185) ran 161 times for a team-high 1,276 yards and 19 touchdowns. He also caught 20 passes for 226 yards and two scores. Mack (6-2, 297), who already holds offers from Texas, Texas A&M, and TCU, had 62 tackles, 16 for loss, six sacks, six forced fumbles, one kick block, one punt block, and one defensive touchdown.
