A midseason position switch didn’t slow down Kade Clayton, who took advantage of his move to tailback and posted monster numbers the rest of the season.

Clayton, who started the 2012 campaign as a receiver, finished the season with 1,511 rushing yards and 26 rushing touchdowns, averaging 12.7 yards per carry, to lead Tyler Grace to the TAPPS playoffs. For his performance, Division II District 2 coaches named the junior playmaker the league’s Most Valuable Player.

Bullard Brook Hill receiver Seth Brasher was named the district’s Freshman of the Year. Dallas Christian junior lineman Stephen Forester was tabbed Defensive MVP, while Dallas Parish Episcopal senior running back Zach Shelley received Offensive MVP honors. Shelley’s teammate, senior Luke Hoyl, earned Newcomer of the Year recognition.

In addition to his huge rushing numbers, Clayton caught 26 balls for 502 yards and six touchdowns. On defense, where he played in the secondary, Clayton had 69 tackles and two forced fumbles.

Dallas Christian’s Mike Wheeler was named Coach of the Year.
