Sean Cole, East Limestone: Cole had 27 pancake blocks playing guard for the Indians and had an 81 percent grade on his blocking assignments for the season.
Carson Pack, Ardmore: Pack led an offensive line that paved the way for the Tigers’ rushing attack to run for more than 300 yards five times this season.
Hunter Rouse, West Limestone: Rouse anchored West Limestone’s offensive line from his center position. A two-year starter, Rouse never missed a game this season.
Tray Fletcher, Tanner: Described by his teammates as the “nastiest” player on the team, Fletcher could have made the all-county team on either side of the line.
Demarcus Johnson, Clements: Johnson was the Colts biggest weapon, playing wide receiver and running back. In the season opener against West Limestone, Johnson accounted for 268 total yards and four touchdowns.
Mitchell Mathis, East Limestone: Mathis connected on 32-of-34 extra point attempts this season and made a crucial field goal that helped East Limestone beat Athens.

Baltazar Rubio, Tanner: Anchoring the interior of Tanner’s defensive line was Rubio, a force to be reckoned with one-on-one for teams that chose to double team Shoulders. Rubio finished with 51 total tackles and four interceptions.
