The junior was also the leading Warrior tackler with 70. Cody Crawford was another first team selection as an offensive lineman. The four-year letterman helped pave the way for Horak and the rest of the team amass over 2,300 rushing yards on the year. The last selection was Calvin Battle as a defensive back. The senior had 37 tackles including two for a loss and also added 320 receiving yards offensively.

WACO had two players named to the second team. Jason Sammons added depth to the offensive line as a guard. The senior also recorded 19 tackles on the other side of the ball. He helped protect quarterback Nik Coble, who was selected as a sophomore. He accumulated 1,402 yards through the air with 18 touchdowns and only five interceptions.

The final recipients were Matthew Leichty and Hunter Donaldson for honorable mention. Leichty was a versatile tight end that ended the year with 22 receptions for 271 yards and three scores. Donaldson was a force defensively with 36 tackles including eight for a loss.

The Warriors finished the year 4-6 overall.
