2019 2A-8 All-District Team

The 2019 Class 2A District 8 football awards were released with the Comets placing three with 1st team honors. 

Senior Offensive Lineman Trevor Baxter had a stellar year anchoring the offensive line that produced over 1,800 yards of rushing offense and 24 touchdowns. 

Senior Defensive Lineman Zirane Wright was named a 1st Team Defensive Lineman for his play throughout the 2019 season. Wright finished his season strong totaling 57 tackles with 11 of those being solo and 3 being quarterback sacks. What is not shown in the stat sheet is the amount of double, and sometimes triple teams, that Wright required of opponents. 

1st Team Senior Linebacker Rusty Beard had one of the most prolific seasons ever as a Comet Linebacker. He broke the single game tackle record by recording 25 tackles versus Davis in Week 6. He finished the season with 130 total tackles, 32 solo tackles, 16 tackles for a loss, and 10 sacks. His 130 tackles in a season is a new Comet Football record. 

An additional three Comets were included in postseason honors by receiving votes by other coaches in the district. Sophomore Runningback Johnny Smith finished the season with 788 yards and 11 Touchdowns on the ground. Freshman Wide Receiver Jzavionn Bennett tallied 34 receptions for 406 yards and 2 Touchdowns.
