Westlake was well represented when the District 15-5A awards were released earlier this week.
The Chaparrals, which made the state semifinals in the Class 5A Division II playoffs this season, landed 10 players on the first team, 12 on the second team and another nine that made honorable mention.
With four players on the first team offense, the Chaps tied for the most players represented with Austin High, while the six players on the defensive first team were the most of any school in the district.
District champion Lake Travis netted three of the big awards, with quarterback Baker Mayfield named District MVP, Hunter Streuling the Defensive MVP and Hank Carter coming in as district Coach of the Year. Del Valle running back Josh Cleveland was named Offensive MVP, while Bowie’s Steve Johnson was the Newcomer of the Year.
Quarterback Jordan Severt, running back Chris Canter, receiver Brandon Box and left tackle Judge Finley – the latter three all seniors – were named to the first team offense.
On the defensive side, senior nose guard Jacob Mansour, senior defensive end Anthony Patino, sophomore inside linebacker Hudson Hall, senior outside linebacker Carsten Hood, and safeties senior John Dodd and junior Jack Meredith all made the first team.
On the second team offense from Westlake are running back Keith Carter, receiver Patrick Elliott, tight end Zach Dansby, center Bobby Dwyer, right guard Taylor Works and punter Michael Barden.
The second team defensive Chaps are D-lineman Luke Womack and defensive end Justin Miller, inside linebacker Breckyn Hager, outside linebacker Alec Cohen and his twin brother, cornerback Derek Cohen along with Barden, who was named as a kicker, too.
