Monday, January 3, 2011

Sikeston, Dexter, NMCC and Charleston are all represented on list


COLUMBIA -- The 2010 Associated Press All-State football teams were recently announced with several local players given the honor.

The Sikeston Bulldogs were represented by linebacker Ray Clark as a first team defensive selection in Class 4. The senior totaled 166 tackles during this past season.

Senior quarterback Trey Lewis and running back Darryl Howard were given a second team selection. Lewis, who was named to the second team as an all-purpose player, set new school records in both passing and rushing for a Sikeston quarterback.

Howard rushed for 1,770 yards and 18 touchdowns during the Bulldogs' second-straight semifinals appearance.

New Madrid County Central senior G'Darius Stevenson was a Class 3 selection on the first team offense, as was Dexter's Morgan Hedrick.

Stevenson rushed for 1,596 yards and 26 touchdowns and also threw for 607 yards and 7 touchdowns. The senior accounted for a total of 2,203 yards, 35 touchdowns and scored 229 points alone.

Dexter's Hedrick was an integral part in seeing the Bearcats advance to the Class 3 quarterfinals this past season when their season ended to John Burroughs High School.

Brandon Moore and Jake Cox, both from Dexter, also made the Class 3 team but was named to the second team.

Moore made the offensive team as an offensive lineman. Cox was a defensive back selection.

In Class 2, Charleston punter Ethan Browning was named to the first team offense.

Browning had an average of 42 yards a punt for the winless Bluejays.
