When you win your district, good things happen to
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
The two players that earned the highest distinctions
were senior quarterback Don King III and junior center Jacob
“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
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
“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
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
