Bruce Woods, Jr., Defensive Tackle, Elysian Fields

Woods dominated the right sides of most opposing offensive lines to the tune of 117 tackles (27 for loss) and 16 sacks.

He was the Defensive Most Valuable Player in District 8-2A Division II and was also a First Team All-State selection.

Powell was a mainstay for the Bulldogs and helped lead them to their seventh straight playoff appearance while being Offensive Lineman of the Year in District 9-2A. He helped pave the way for Williams, who ran for 1,786 yards and 20 touchdowns on his way to first-team honors.

Isaiah Golden, Jr., Defensive End, Elysian Fields

Golden averaged almost nine tackles with his 71 in eight games, including 13 for loss and eight sacks. He was a First Team All-District pick despite missing three games due to injury. He's high on many recruiting lists and has verbally committed to Texas A&M University.

Alandric Tutt, Sr., Marshall

Tutt was the Mavericks' leader on offense and was equally dangerous on kickoff and punt returns. He had more than 1,100 yards rushing and passing and is arguably the school's top athlete also starring on the Maverick basketball team.

Marek Reyes, Soph., Marshall

The sophomore wide receiver was a dual threat when it came to making the key catch or bursting around end with his deceptive speed. Reyes gives Marshall two more years of stability in the passing game as long as they can find a quarterback to replace the departed Tutt who can get him and fellow receivers the football in 2012. He averaged 10.5 yards per catch.

Junebug Johnson, Fr., Waskom

Johnson brought a tremendous amount of athleticism for a Wildcat team which began the season with five straight wins, and despite a struggle in district play, Waskom has a fixture in its offensive backfield for three more seasons after a freshmen season which saw him average a whopping 11 yards per carry (462 yards on 41 totes).

Chris Smith, Soph., Jefferson

Smith received the same accolade in District 9-2A Division I circles, as he quickly made a name for himself at linebacker for the Bulldogs. He gives Jefferson two more years of stability at the linebacker position.

David Plunk, Hallsville

The 5-6 record is a deceiving one, as Plunk took what was a 1-4 team and led it to wins in four of its last five regular-season games, including the school's second career win against rival Marshall. The Bobcats finished 4-3 in District 14-4A play and made their first playoff appearance since the 2006 season.
