Award season starts well for area teams

DUNCAN — The 2012 football season might have come to a close for the Duncan Demons in the first round of the playoffs, but the postseason awards are just starting to file in.

With the announcement of the District 5A-1 All-District team came the mention of several Demons players receiving honors.

In the player of the year category, Derek McKnight walked away as the Defensive Player of the Year, with DHS kicker Jack Braught being named as the Special Teams Player of the Year.

During the season, Braught scored five touchdowns and kicked through 24 point after attempts and six field goals. The longest was a 50-yarder Braught successfully booted in against Carl Albert in Week 3.

Meanwhile, McKnight was a huge part of the Demons’ defense this season, leading the team with 7.5 sacks, to go with five tackles for loss and 73 total tackled.

Andrew Peercy, Bryan Bradburry, and Riley Peters all landed on the First-Team offensive list for the Demons.

Caleb Longest and Cody Merrill earned spots on the First-Team defensive list for the Demons as well.

CLASS B

There was plenty of reason to celebrate this season for Central High, and there continues to be more of the same.

Lineman Jarrett Sparks was named to the Oklahoma Eight Man Football Coaches Association All-Stars list along with Mason Wilkerson from Waurika.

Central High’s Ashton Wright and Grant Tomlinson were named as alternates along with Waurika’s Josh Jacobson.

Sparks also received another honor, as he was named as Defensive Lineman of the Year on the B-2 All District team.

Teammate Kevin Harris landed the Offensive Player of the Year award as well.

On the season, Harris made life difficult for teams on both sides of the ball. In total, the junior finished with 1,650 yards on 179 carries for 26 touchdowns.

Harris finished the season with 34 touchdowns in all.

Other names appearing on the All-District Offense team were Waurika’s Blaine Shockley, along with teammates Mason Wilkerson and Austin Masoner.

Central’s Grant Tomlinson and Dylan Waller also made the first team offense.

Ashton Wright and Josh Jacobson of Waurika landed on the All-District Defense list.
