Michael Lowe, Jones

Senior quarterback

College choice: Undecided

This season: Lowe threw for 3,589 yards and 43 touchdowns while throwing just four interceptions for the 2A runners-up. He also ran for 488 yards and nine touchdowns.

Barry J. Sanders, Heritage Hall

Senior running back

College choice: Considering OSU, Stanford, Alabama and Florida State

This season: Sanders rushed for 1,343 yards and 20 TDs, averaging over 9.5 yards per carry. The top college prospect will announce his college choice — likely Stanford or Oklahoma State — at the Jan. 7 U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

 

Jacob Smart, Minco

Senior running back

College choice: Undecided

This season: Smart ran for 1,832 yards and 31 touchdowns, averaging nine yards per carry. Smart was also a key component of Minco's defense, recording 140 tackles from the linebacker spot to finish with 412 career tackles.

Josh Way, Wayne

Senior running back

College choice: Undecided

This season: Way ran for 2,989 yards and 42 touchdowns, scoring 44 times overall for the Class A state champions. His dominance stretched into the playoffs, where he rushed for 311 yards and five touchdowns in the second round and for 284 yards and three scores in the title game win over Woodland.

Tylor Seabolt, Jones

Senior wide receiver

College choice: Undecided

This season: Seabolt had 1,213 yards and 17 touchdowns receiving, including a spectacular touchdown catch and run in the 2A state title game against Hennessey. He was also a major part of the Longhorns' defense, with 57 tackles and five interceptions.

Offensive Player of the Year

Sterling Shepard, Heritage Hall

Senior receiver

College choice: Committed to Oklahoma

This season: Shepard continued to be a human highlight reel as a senior, hauling in 73 receptions for 1,243 yards and 17 TDs. The Oklahoma commit scored 29 total TDs, and added 80 tackles and five interceptions on defense.

 

Graham Bennett, Casady

Senior offensive lineman

College choice: Committed to San Diego

This season: Bennett was a first-team All-Southwest Prepartory Conference honoree. As a senior on defense — where he'll likely play in college — he recorded 37 tackles and eight sacks.

 

Cayman Bundage, Douglass

Senior offensive lineman

College choice: Committed to Arizona

This season: Bundage graded out at 92 percent at offensive tackle, and he made 51 career starts on the offensive line with a grade of 91 percent. Over his career, Douglass averaged 326 rushing yards per game. Defensively as a senior, he had 98 tackles, eight sacks and 21 quarterback hurries, bringing his career totals to 277 tackles, 16 sacks and 55 hurries.

Blake Jarwin, Tuttle

Senior offensive lineman

College choice: Undecided, being recruited by several NCAA Division II schools

This season: Jarwin was Tuttle's best tight end a year ago, but was moved to the offensive line as a senior and thrived, opening up holes for the Tigers' prolific ground attack, which averaged over 200 yards a game.

 

Shawn Moore, Pauls Valley

Senior offensive lineman

College choice: Undecided

This season: Moore anchored a Pauls Valley offensive line that was vital to the program's turnaround from a two-win season to a playoff appearance. Moore's athletic ability in his 6-foot-4, 260-pound frame made him an ideal fit for coach John Inman's spread offense.

Markus Wakefield, Heritage Hall

Senior offensive lineman

College choice: Undecided

This season: Wakefield, a force on both sides of the line, is a big reason for Heritage Hall's success in the run game. Heritage Hall coach Andy Bogert said that without Wakefield, “we'd probably have trouble running the ball.”
