Mesquite, Mesquite Horn, and Rockwall claimed all six of the superlatives honors, but Longview was all over the District 12-5A first team, as voted by the league’s coaches.

Mesquite quarterback Alex Cooper was named Most Valuable Player, while Skeeters coach Robbie Robinson was named Coach of the Year after the duo led Mesquite to the 12-5A championship and an 11-1 record. Mesquite Horn’s Destri White, who helped the Jaguars to a second-place finish, was named Offensive MVP.

Horn’s D.J. Green and Mesquite’s Javon Jones shared Defensive MVP honors. Both Newcomer of the Year awards went to Rockwall players: sophomore Chris Warren (offense) and freshman Luke Termin (defense).

Longview, which finished 9-4 and went deeper in the playoffs than any 12-5A team (three rounds), had running back Tory White (1,253 rushing yards, 14 TDs), tight end Colin Jeter, and linemen Vernon Hutchinson and Adrian Jackson picked to the first-team offense, along with Tyler Lee kicker Lumi Kaba. Defensive end Jalen Porter (71 tackles, 5 sacks), defensive tackle Cornelius Williams (84 tackles, 17 for loss), linebacker DeMarkus Lathan (138 tackles), safety Corey Bartley (138 tackles, 7 INTs), and cornerback Nakia Brown were first-team selections on defense. Brown was also named first-team return specialist after his four punt return touchdowns.

Tyler Lee’s Deontay Walker (linebacker) and Kaba (punter) were also first-team defense.
