The Nacogdoches Dragons and Marshall Mavericks fought to a co-championship in District 16-5A with identical 12-2 worksheets. Postseason accolades clearly reflected the quandary.

Dragon senior Nana Antwi-Boasiako was selected by coaches as league MVP. Senior teammate Deonte Jackson took Defensive MVP, while Maverick senior Christopher Leonard earned Offensive MVP.

John Tyler freshman Ashad Walker nabbed Newcomer of the Year and the Coach of the Year, not surprisingly, was shared between Nacogdoches’ Tony Leamon and Bobby Carson of Marshall.
