Nine athletes out of the Cypress area, five from Spring, four from Tomball and three from Klein were honored.

Cy Creek senior linebacker Josh White made first-team defense and was named defensive player of the year.

“We are very pleased for Josh,” Cy Creek campus athletic coordinator and head football coach Greg McCaig said. “He is a great kid and a terrific football player. He is certainly very deserving of this honor.

White signed with LSU and helped lead the Cougars to their second straight regional final appearance and finished the season with 117 tackles (67 solo), 24.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks and blocked two kicks.

The 6-foot-1, 220-pound linebacker was named Touchdown Club of Houston’s top Defensive Player of the Year on Dec. 12, at the 40th annual UIL High School Awards Dinner, at the Bayou City Event Center. He was also honored by the club as part of its 2019 UIL High School preseason team and earned his second consecutive District 17-6A Defensive MVP.

“His leadership will be sorely missed next year,” McCaig said. “We all wish Josh the very best at LSU next year. Geaux Tigers.”

Rockwall senior wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba was named the offensive player of the year. Smith-Njigba signed with Ohio State and had 108 receptions for 2,161 yards and 35 touchdowns, both 6A records.

Klein Oak senior defensive back/wide receiver Dwight McGlothern made first-team offense.

“He’s a great player, great young man,” Klein Oak campus athletic coordinator and head football coach Jason Glenn said. “He does a lot of great things for our school and our community, he deserves it.”

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete finished with 66 receptions for just over 1,300 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns. He was named the District 15-6A Most Valuable Player, was among 10 finalists for the Touchdown Club of Houston’s Offensive Player of the Year award and was honored by the club as part of its 2019 UIL High School preseason team.

“He’s a first-team all-state kid on the field but also off the field. We’re going to miss him,” Glenn said.

McGlothern was only at Klein Oak for one year, but Glenn says it meant a lot because he brought excitement to the sideline and fans.

“It’s OK to get excited to play the game,” Glenn said. “A lot of times kids that are really good players, they are so cool and laid back, and he didn’t care about that. Every time he celebrated it was with his teammates, that’s an awesome thing.”

Westfield senior defensive lineman Nicholas Booker-Brown made first-team defense.

The 6-foot-3, 265-pound lineman and Boise State signee was among 10 finalists for the Touchdown Club of Houston Defensive Player of the Year award and helped the Mustangs defense hold District 16-6A opponents to only 35 points in seven games.

Four other Mustangs were recognized in senior defensive back Marcus Moore, who made second-team defense, senior defensive lineman Tim Hardiman and senior linebacker Dyllon Peavy made third-team defense and senior running back Kendal Taylor was named an honorable mention.

“Even though the players selected is an individual recognition to me it is a team validation,” Spring ISD Assistant Director of Athletics Armando Jacinto said. “When a team makes a run like Westfield did it always brings notoriety to the teams, coaches, players, school, district and community. This just validates the hard work and talent that we have in our coaches and players not just at Westfield, but in Spring ISD.”

Tomball Memorial senior center Braedon Nutter was named an honorable mention. The three-star 6-foot-3, 280-pound lineman signed with Rice.

Fellow Wildcat senior wide receiver Logan Kyle (Vanderbilt signee), junior wide receiver Joseph Manjack and senior lineman Elijah Champaigne (Tulane signee and District 14-6A Defensive MVP) were named honorable mentions.

Cy-Fair junior running back L.J. Johnson (four-star recruit) made second-team offense.

Bridgeland junior wide receiver Dylan Goffney was named an honorable mention.

Cy Lakes senior quarterback Sofian Massoud (UH signee) was named an honorable mention.

Cy Ranch senior fullback Elias Pino and fellow Mustang junior linebacker Landen Nowak and junior defensive back Robin Neely were named honorable mentions.

Cy Falls senior defensive back Jayden Goodwin was named an honorable mention.

Cy Creek senior defensive back Da’Quan Jefferson was named an honorable mention.

Klein Collins senior running back Braelon Bridges made second-team offense.

Klein Cain sophomore running backs Jaydon Blue was named an honorable mention.
