HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Two Indians make 1st team

Nocona High School football players Barkley Hayes and Robert Hawkins received first-team honors in District 2-3A-I.
The honors were released on Monday.
Hayes, a senior, made the first team at both offensive and defensive lineman. Hawkins, another Indian senior, made it as a special teams gunner.
Junior Brendan Ramsey was selected as a second-team tight end, and Parker Marshall made it as a utility player.
On the second-team defense, senior Emmanuel Gaytan was chosen for the defensive line, senior Payton Crabtree at outside linebacker and sophomore Tanner Cable as a utility player.
Nocona had an interesting season, winning its first game over Alvord and the finale over Jacksboro.
The team finished with a 2-8 overall record, and 1-5 in 2-3A-II.
The Indians scored 160 points and allowed 312 this season, both improvements from the winless 2014 campaign.
District most valuable player went to Cisco senior Taylor Massey.
Eastland senior Josh Gosnell was chosen as offensive most valuable player, and Henrietta senior Cody Fletcher as defensive most valuable player.
Henrietta’s Zack West was named offensive newcomer, and Morgan Barker of Eastland was the defensive newcomer. Read more in The Bowie News.
