While the Waxahachie Indiansí football season ended nearly two months ago, they are just now able to rack up their all-district honors.
All of the stateís districts arenít allowed to release their all-district teams until each team in the divisionís season has ended. Since the Lancaster Tigers went all the way to the state championship game, 15-4A wasnít allowed to release its honors until this week.
Waxahachie finished with nine players on either the 15-4A first or second team and had three other players earn honorable mention honors.
The Tribeís first-team offensive players were junior running back Treyvon Hughes and junior wide receiver Quinn Sargent, who was a unanimous pick.
Hughes filled Rob Lowe Jr.ís shoes admirably as he ran for 1,461 yards on 205 carries, 7.13 yards per attempt, and scored 16 touchdowns on the ground. He also caught 13 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown.
Sargent had 30 catches for 739 yards and 11 touchdowns. All of those numbers are improvements on his 26 catches for 594 yards and seven scores his sophomore season. If he keeps improving, he could be the Indiansí first 1,000-yard receiver in more than 10 years.
Seniors Craig Renfro and Jamorion Rose each earned first-team honors for the defense. As a whole, the defense was very up and down this year, but Renfro and Rose were always ready to play.
Renfroís best game of the season came against Mansfield Lake Ridge when he had nine tackles, four for loss, two sacks and a blocked punt return for a touchdown.
Rose led the team in interceptions and pass break-ups this year.
Dylan McClain was the only Indian to receiver two honors this year as he was named first-team punter and second-team kicker.
He had a booming 65-yard punt against Arlington Seguin to help the Indians win the field-possession game and nailed a 53-yard field goal for a career-long.
Junior tackle Patrick Lawrence earned second-team honors for his job paving the way for Hughes and the rest of the Indian offense.†
This was his first year at the position after playing tight end last year and he excelled at it. If he keeps growing this offseason, he will be the anchor of the offensive line next year.
Gennard Johnson, BJ Sargent and Austin Davidson, all seniors, each won second-team defensive honors.
Johnson, a defensive tackle, led the team in tackles for loss and was an emotional leader for this defense.
Sargent was a wrecking ball all season from the defensive end position and had no trouble getting into the backfield on most plays.
Davidson has led the team in tackles the last two years and racked up more than 100 tackles this year.†
His best game was in the victory against Ennis when he had an interception in the shut out that sealed the Indiansí playoff berth.
Adrian Zavala, Jacob Aguilar and Tracy Morrison all earned honorable mention honors.
Zavala and Aguilar earned it for their work on the offensive line.
Aguilar, a senior center, earned all-state honorable mention last season and helped the Indians gain more than 3,500 yards of offense this year.
Zavala, a junior right tackle, battled an injury early in the season to bounce back and also help anchor the offensive line in his first year as a full-time player.
Morrison, a senior cornerback and wide receiver, played a major role on both sides of the ball this year.
