Multiple Tigers named to 5-2A All-District teams

COMMERCE — Several Commerce High School football players were named to the 5-2A All-District and the Academic All-District team.

Senior defensive lineman Cortez Crosby was named Defensive Player of the Year, while senior defensive lineman Blake Madewell was named Defensive Lineman of the Year, junior defensive end Demetric Jennings was named to the second team defensive ends, junior cornerback Al Jackson was selected as a second team all-district cornerback, senior safety Kavrin Massey was named to a second team, and senior outside linebacker Daryian Hubbard received a second team nod. Senior wide receiver Buck Wilson was named a first team wide receiver, a first team punter and a first team safety. Junior Isaiah Thomas was named a first team defensive tackle and junior Roderick Jackson was honored as a first team offensive lineman.

Several key players who will be back for the Tigers next year received second team honors, including junior quarterback Sam Wells, sophomore running back Robert Jackson and sophomore wide receiver D’Lance Sharp.

Defensive end Bailey Weaver, wide receiver/running back Bran Kelley and linebacker J.J. Prothro all received honorable mention nods.

CHS Academic All-District students are: Josh Scroggins

The Tigers had a strong season in their first year since redistricting saw them drop to 2A, going 7-5 and winning their first playoff game in more than a decade before losing to an unbeaten New Boston squad. The Tigers will have to replace familiar faces on both sides of the ball, but a strong offensive nucleus will be back for next year.Several Commerce High School football players were named to the 5-2A All-District and the Academic All-District team.
