Walnut Springs claimed the Six-Man Division II District 15 football championship, so itís only fitting the Hornets lead all schools with six first-team honorees.
Itís also fitting that hometown hero Tim Trotter, who was born and raised in Walnut Springs and spent 14 years on staff as an assistant coach, be named Coach of the Year after leading the Hornets to their first regional title since 1958, and first state semifinal appearance in school history.
Also getting his just due is Defensive MVP Kody Stack, who paced the 9-4 Hornets on defense with six interceptions. He averaged almost 20 yards returning picks, tallied a team-high 43 tackles and made one fumble recovery.
Taking first team honors from Walnut Springs are Eddie Whitt, Caleb Ballesteros, Zach Turnham, Matt Prescher, Jacob White and Johnathan Stack.
WSHS had two second-team picks - Cody Crisp and Andrew Herring - while two others - Mario Ballesteros and Ryan Engelhardt - received honorable-mention recognition, giving the Hornets a second-best total of 10 student-athletes honored.
District runner-up Leverettís Chapel had the most honorees with the District MVP, Offensive MVP, three first-team picks, five second-teamers and three on the honorable-mention list for a total of 13.
