An undefeated run through the league and state championship season yielded a big haul for Carthage with the release of the 20-3A all-district football team as voted by coaches.

Carthage senior quarterback Blake Bogenschutz earned the district's Most Valuable Player award after throwing for school records in yardage (4,003) and touchdowns (57) and leading the Dawgs to their fourth state title in six years.

Bogenschutz, who will play college football for UTSA, finished his high school career with more than 9,500 passing yards and 119 touchdowns. His single-season touchdown pass total of 57 ranks fifth in state history. Carthage went 35-8 in three years with Bogenschutz at quarterback.

Senior defensive lineman Mario McCain garnered 20-3A Defensive MVP honors. The 6-foot, 220-pound McCain -- who started 59 varsity games, started three years on both sides of the ball, and won two state championships in his Carthage career -- recorded 129 tackles, 25 for loss, 10 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and 30 quarterback pressures in 2013.

Jasper senior tailback Terrance Cuney snagged Offensive MVP honors. Cuney ran for more than 1,500 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2013, which saw Jasper finish 8-4 with a 3A Division I regional semifinal appearance.

Carthage sophomore defensive end Jarrod McLin and Center freshman receiver Octavious Evans shared Newcomer of the Year accolades. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound McLin had 73 tackles, nine for loss, four sacks, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and 24 pressures in a breakout sophomore campaign. Evans led Center in all three receiving categories with 67 catches for 734 yards and eight touchdowns.

Scott Surratt, who improved to 88-15 overall and 30-3 in the playoffs in his seven years at Carthage, was named 20-3A Coach of the Year.
