East Prairie's Tipler named first team all-state

Tuesday, December 6, 2005

JEFFERSON CITY -- The Missouri Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association released its 2005 Class 1, 2 and 3 All-State teams on Monday.

Two Southeast Missouri running backs, Paris Tipler of East Prairie and Kendrickus Reed of Caruthersville, were first-team Class 2 selections.

Another area running back, Alex Becker of Dexter, was chosen to the Class 3 second team.

Tipler, a 5-9, 190-pound junior speedster, was the SEMO Conference scoring leader with 194 points, including an area-best 31 TDs, in East Prairie's nine-

game schedule.

He rushed for 1,759 yards and 27 TDs and led all area backs with a 10.9 yards-per-carry average.

Tipler had two kick returns for touchdowns and also contributed to East Prairie's passing game with nine catches for 229 yards and two TDs.

The 6-foot, 195-pound Reed was a bruising runner for the district champion Caruthersville Tigers.

Seldom stopped for negative yardage, he was the area's top rusher with 2,239 yards, scored 26 rushing TDs and finished as the SEMO Conference's second leading scorer with 170 points.

Becker, a 5-10, 170-pound senior workhorse, averaged 30 carries per game while leading Dexter to a district title. Lacking imposing size or speed, Becker simply produced.

He rushed for 1,739 yards, averaged 5.7 yards per carry and scored 25 TDs. Becker was the winner of the Carr Trophy, an annual award presented to the outstanding high school football player in Southeast Missouri.
