Updated: Jan 2, 2020
It was a good year on the gridiron for our 806 teams even though no team came away with a title. Post made history, Tascosa made another deep run and knocked off a couple of Metroplex teams in the process and how about Dumas! So, here is the ALL-806 Football team for 2019!
Joseph Plunk: Tascosa Rebels
Joseph was the biggest threat out of the backfield in the 806 this season. He ran Tascosa's complex offense to a t en route to a State Quarterfinals appearance while breaking records in the process. It'll be a long time before the Rebels get a player of this caliber again.
Sawyer Robertson: Coronado Mustangs
Over 3,900 yards passing. 44 touchdowns through the air and only eight interceptions as well. No wonder Sawyer has five Division One offers with more certainly on the way. He is deadly accurate and very poised in the pocket. Expect a huge Senior season for him too!
Jermiah Dobbins: Estacado Matadors
How about Jeremiah rushing for over 2,800 yards this season and finishing 18th in the Nation in rushing yards! He committed early to Abilene Christian University and goes into college with 48 credit hours already with full intentions to get his Masters degree! No wonder the Wildcats are so happy to have him, and the Matadors hate to see him go...
Isaiah Johnson: Lubbock-Cooper Pirates
Johnson, a North Texas commit, really progressed a ton in his Senior season. Look at what he did against the State Champs in 5A DII! He really lit up the Bearcats and showed the state that he is forreal and will be a valued asset for the MEAN GREEN!!
Tyrie "Kip" Tipton: Monterey High School
Tyrie lit it up this season in his last finale.. He really set himself apart from the others as he became the go-to-guy for the Pliansmen offense. Over 1,600 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns let everyone across the state know what he can do as a slot receiver on the next level and that's why he has over 10 offers now to play next level.
Davin Lemmons: Amarillo Sandies
With 61 catches, 750 yards receiving and ten touchdowns as a Junior, Davin has showed major potential for next-level play. Count on him for the big play and clutch catch; he's built for primetime and I'm anxious to see where he lands in 2021's class.
TJ Steele: Estacado Matadors
TJ is electric! Just put the ball in his hands and he can score from anywhere on the field. He got an offer from Division One William & Mary a couple of weeks back and once more colleges see his film, he will garner more. He should have another stellar season in 2020 for the Matadors and will be utilized and counted on a lot more as well.
Cameron Bednarz: Lubbock-Cooper
Ben Marcinkowski: Lubbock-Cooper
Ayden Visage: Lubbock-Cooper
"Start early. Start fast. Start aggressive." Those were the words to his team before the Pirates went out there and almost stunned the nation with an upset of Aledo in the State Semifinals in 5A DII. He is a dog between the hashmarks, but a gentle man off the field. He just received a PWO offer from Oklahoma and has many more offers as well to choose from. Whoever gets him will be getting a leader with action and a very humble man that will work as hard as anyone and won't stop until he reaches the top.
Cameron Soto: Pampa Harvesters
Cameron had 48 pancakes with extra syrup this season and only allowed two sacks on his way to an All-State First Team selection! He led a great Pampa team that went three rounds deep in the playoffs. Can't wait to see where he plays this fall on the next level!
Chase Rodriguez: Lubbock-Cooper
This young man is 6'3" and 330 pounds! He wreaked havoc for Coach Hays' Offensive line unit and will be counted on to bring the young guys along next season for LCP! If you get a look at his highlight, you will see just how dominant he was for the Pirates' attack. He opened a lot of holes, and saved a lot of sacks! 2020 may be his coming out party.
Lucas Byrd: Hereford Whitefaces
Lucas is 6'3" and 270 pounds of grit and heart. He has received a plethora of offers and will get to choose where he will play in the fall on the next level. He just works hard...Very hard! Lucas was the leader for the Herd this season and made countless plays for both sides of the ball.
Miles Keith: Abernathy Antelopes
Mr. Keith anchored a very good offensive line for Abernathy and earned second team All-State for his efforts on the gridiron. He has received a couple of offers so far and should pick up steam this summer as well.
Bryson Daily: Abernathy Antelopes
Bryson was the scariest player in Texas with the ball in his hands. Daily is a very gifted passer, but also runs the ball with more speed and toughness than just about anyone I've seen. He has committed to the Army and will do great things on the field and on the battlefield for us. Salute the young general!
Nehemiah Martinez: Lubbock-Cooper
Nehemiah does everything great; defense, tailback, special teams, and more. Over 1,500 total yards and some of the most magical runs we've seen in the last seven years. I got a feeling that whoever picks him up will be glad they did...And for the schools that pass on him, they will pay dearly!
LB Moore: Tascosa Rebels
LB was a beast this season for the Rebels as he wreaked havoc on the defensive line all year and had plenty of sacks and forced fumbles for the T-Rebs. Texas Tech got a steal when he committed to them over a host of other schools all over the country.
Papa Bluitt: Estacado Matadors
1st team All-State and a major presence on the line for the Matadors this season for Papa. He led his team and kept everyone on the prize at hand as the Matadors went undefeated in the regular season for the first time since 1968! If you doubled Bluitt, you payed for it. If you didn't double him, you payed for it. Every team had to figure out what to do with him in their gameplan and that lets you know just how special he was.
Taye Perez: Post Antelopes
Taye was the 2019 District Offensive Lineman MVP. Had 64 pancakes, was the 2019 All District 1st Team defensive Lineman, had 112 Total Tackles, 66 Assisted, 13 Solo tackles, 33 tackles for loss, 8 Sacks, 16 QB Pressures, 3 Caused Fumbles, 2 Recovered Fumbles and 3 PAT Blocks. Any questions??
Zylis Johnson: Monterey Plainsmen
He has the potential to take over a game on his own. I watched him get four sacks and three hurries in one half this season. His Senior season should be the coming out party for Zylis!
Kobie McKinzie: Lubbock-Cooper
Crazy to think Kobie has two more years left in High School and is already the #1 ranked Outside Linebacker in the Nation! A very dangerous player that can cover very quickly from sideline to sideline and will make the big play for his team. With nine offers including Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State, expect him to end up with 30 offers before it's all said-and-done.
Sederick Colbert: Estacado Matadors
106 TACKLES...32 TACKLES FOR LOSS!! 5 SACKS!!! No wonder Sederick made 4A's first team for All-State. He is rangy, and will pop you in a hurry. Very fast through the hole and great awareness as well . He has multiple offers and will be one of the few that will get to choose where he wants to go play on the next level.
Izaiah Kelley: Coronado Mustangs
He committed to SMU earlier in the year and folks, the Mustangs got a steal. He started off at Wide Receiver for Coronado but has transitioned to Linebacker and he is really scary back there; from laying thunder shots, to intercepting passes and taking them to the house, Izaiah will be a force next season for the Coronado Mustangs.
TY Williams: Monterey High School
Ty can do it all; from running back, to kick returner, to Linebacker where he excels the most. This man can play elite ball for whatever school is going to pick him. All you have to do is watch the film and you will find out pretty quickly that he is in a class of his own.
Caleb Suggs: Dumas High School
You need a big play in the secondary? He'll deliver. I watched three games and in those contests he had four interceptions and three big hits. He and the secondary were very instrumental in Dumas' run to the state quarters!
Jordan "JOJO" Kirkpatrick: Lubbock-Cooper
A lock down safety that makes up ground very well. He, along with Wilcox and Stevens played exceptional this season including slowing down two Division One receivers from Aledo. Standing at 5'11" and weighing 185 pounds, if he gets to 200 pounds and gains a couple inches, he's going big time next level after his Senior year in 2020.
Keke Murray: Estacado High School
Keke played stellar and crisp on both sides of the ball this season. While lined up at receiver he scored seven times. On defense, when the ball was thrown his way, he had 16 passes defensed and five interceptions. Murray has a few DI offers as well so he will sign in February and we will all get to find out where this electric athlete will continue his career.
Lance Welps: Amarillo River Road
Lance also is the starting quarterback for River Road and ran for a whole lotta yards this season. But let's talk about defense: He had seven interceptions and also was named 2nd team All-State at cornerback in his Junior Campaign. His Senior season should be special for the Wildcats!
