The Pettus Eagle varsity football team did not make the playoffs this year but the district’s coaches were well aware of the talent on the Eagles’ team.

Eight positions on the first team all-district offense and defense were held by Eagles.

The District 31-A coaches selected sophomore Hunter Tomlin to a first team position on both the offense and defense. Tomlin was named as a wide receiver and as a defensive back for his play this year.

Another two-way first team all-district performer was senior McKinzie Torres. He was selected as an outside linebacker on defense and as a utility player on offense.

Junior James Constante was also a two-way selection to the first team. Constante earned his spot on defense at tackle and was named to the offensive line for his play.

Also named to the district’s first teams were senior Joe Jefferson at defensive end and sophomore Austin Carrillo as an inside linebacker.

On the second team, Eagle sophomore Ryan Beck was named twice. Beck earned a position as a quarterback and as a kicker.

Ulises Juarez made the second team defense as a junior linebacker as did James Wolfe. Senior defensive tackle Jose Tobias was a second team selection. Sophomore Taylor Yeoman earned a spot on the second team as a tight end.

Eagles earning honorable mention status included Abraham Escamilla, (LB), Grayson Huskey (DB) and Joe Jefferson (FB).

Six Eagles earned their way onto the Academic All-District team with their work in the classroom as well as on the field.

Those Eagles included Casey Jones, Eric Montez, Ryan Beck, Hunter Tomlin, James Constante and Matt Miller.

“Obviously, it’s going to be tough to replace our senior two-way all-district guys like McKinzie and Joe, as well as our other seniors, but we are excited to have so many underclassmen recognized on the first and second teams,” said Eagle head coach Steve Marbach.

“We have a large senior group of boys coming up next year, and we are looking forward to a great season.”
