“Garrett is a very intelligent young man who we moved around a little bit,” Thornton said. “I was glad to see him get recognized, and deservedly so. He made numerous tackles from his safety position.”
Earning spots on the all-district, all-academic team were junior Colton Edwards and sophomore Dylan Price.
“We preach all the time, that you cannot be great on the football field if you are not first great in the classroom,” Thornton said. “Both of these young men work extremely hard on and off the field and take great pride in their academic endeavors.
“They are an example for what all of our players should strive for.
“It is always nice to be recognized by others in the district, and I am proud of each of our selections.
“They have worked hard to earn these post-season honors.”
