When you win your district, good things happen to

your team.

Waxahachie earned the 15-4A title this year and

because of that effort, the Indians claimed 15 spots on the

all-district team and two players were all-state honorable

mentions.

The two players that earned the highest distinctions

were senior quarterback Don King III and junior center Jacob

Aguilar.

“I think it’s a tribute to our whole team, but the

offense was really balanced,” Waxahachie coach David Ream said. “We

didn’t give up a lot of sacks and that’s because of those two. This

is a big honor for them.”

Ream said he wasn’t surprised the two made the squad,

but didn’t expect it.

“There are a lot of good players in Texas and just to

be an honorable mention is a major accomplishment,” Ream said.

Senior running back Rob Lowe Jr. was named the

district’s offensive MVP. Corsicana running back Cameron Washington

was named district MVP.

“I think we had some great offensive players in this

district and there were several other candidates that would fit

into that category,” Ream said. “After Washington, Lowe had the

best running number. But Rob really was most valuable. He got the

tough yards and is a tough kid that went out and played the game as

best he could.”

King and Aguilar were among the five Indians that

made 15-4A all-district offensive first team. Joining them are

senior fullback Hayden Howell and juniors Terrance Hawkins, wide

receiver, and Gennard Johnson, offensive linemen.

Johnson and Aguilar are two of the team’s four

returning starting offensive linemen.

“I think we were relatively young and the offense

averaged a lot of points and a lot of yards,” Ream said. “We’ve

basically got the whole offensive line coming back and a few inside

receivers that will be contributors.”

But the big hole next year will be at quarterback and

Ream isn’t sure yet who will be the starting signal caller. The

coach did mention that JV quarterback Jake Villarreal had a solid

season.

Senior offensive lineman Zack Rieper and sophomore

wide receiver Quinn Sargent made the offensive second team.

On the defensive side of the ball, senior linebacker

Devin Walker and senior defensive back Christian Brewer made the

first team.

“I think we had a lot of players that played a lot of

great defensive football last year,” Ream said. “We had some big

games that our guys were able to shut people down, probably better

than anybody else in the district.”

The Indians had four players make the defensive

second team: senior lineman Bryan Randall, junior defensive end

Craig Renfro, junior inside linebacker Austin Davidson and junior

defensive back Jamorion Rose.

“Stats can be deceiving on defense. We had a lot of

guys that came up with big stops that you have to have or force the

turnover that you have to have,” Ream said. “The whole unit did a

great job of setting up our offense and they were very

opportunistic.”

Senior wide receiver Travis Stroope, junior wide out

Quin Sargent, senior kicker Ricardo Chavez and junior defensive

back Andre Green were all-district honorable mentions.

Waxahachie also earned the coaching staff of the year

award for 15-4A.

“It was an honor. I really think our district was a

balanced district and we had one of the top staffs from around the

metroplex,” Ream said. “I feel like our staff has been really

stable over the years and that has had a lot to do with our

success.”
