Area gridders named to ASWA all-state football team


By Chris McCarthyPublisher/Editor

Sixteen area student-athletes recently received statewide recognition for their standout production during the 2019 high school football season.
The Alabama Sports Writers Association’s All-State football team featured four local players on the first team, five on the second team and six on the honorable mention list.
Making the cut at first team were Etowah junior Ny Ny Davis at 5A defensive back; Hokes Bluff senior Ashton Gulledge at 4A defensive back, Westbrook Christian junior Hall Bouleware at 2A offensive line and Coosa Christian junior Evan Delp at 1A receiver.
Davis (pictured above) finished with 71 tackles and two interceptions from his cornerback position while helping the Blue Devils go 9-2, finish the regular season as the state’s fifth-ranked team, win a second straight region title and qualify for the state playoffs for the fourth straight season. Davis also played quite a bit on offense, rushing for 379 yards and six touchdowns and catching 21 passes for 485 yards and five TDs.
Starting at strong safety for the fourth straight year, Gulledge led the Eagles with 105 tackles, averaging just shy of 10 stops per game. Gulledge also started at quarterback, punter punt returner and holder. At quarterback, he finished with 1,590 combined passing and rushing yards along with 21 touchdowns.
Boulware graded out a 94 percent blocker while helping the Warriors go 8-4 and make it to the postseason for the second year in a row.
Delp was heads and shoulders above most 1A receivers this year, both vertically and production-wise.
The 6-3, 180-pound junior came 253 yards short of setting a new AHSAA single-season receiving yardage record with 45 receptions for 1,489 yards and an eye-popping 33.1-yard average while catching 21 touchdowns. He also had four interceptions at defensive back.
Selected to the second team were Sardis senior tight end Jacob Hopper in the 5A athlete category, Hokes Bluff senior running back Darrian Meads in the 4A Athlete category, West End senior Jeremiah Roberson at 2A receiver, Westbrook’s Joe Tucker at 2A receiver and Westbrook’s Will Edwards at 2A kicker.
Winding up a stellar prep career that included 8,049 rushing yards and 100 touchdowns, Meads ran for 232 times for 1,540 yards and 17 touchdowns this past season that saw the Eagles go 7-4 and qualify for the state playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
Roberson had 75 catches for 905 yards and 16 touchdowns for the Patriots, who won three out of their last four games in 2019.
Tucker was the Warriors’ go-to receiver with 43 receptions for 747 yards and nine touchdowns. Edwards did not resemble a first-year varsity football player, as he converted 5-of-8 field goal attempts with a long of 45 yards. He also made 41 of 42 extra point attempts.
Receiving honorable mention recognition were Gadsden City senior Daniel Sparks at 7A kicker; Sardis’ Trey Dalrymple at 5A offensive line; Etowah juniors Brady Troup and Trent Davis at 5A quarterback and running back, respectively; West End junior Eli Pearce at 2A quarterback; and Coosa Christian senior running back Dartavious Britton at 1A athlete.
Sparks was 6-for-8 on field goals with a long of 46 yards while making 18 of 20 PAT attempts.
Dalrymple graded out at over 90 percent while finishing with 51 tackles.
Troup was 81 for 113 in passing for 2,400 yards and 21 touchdowns, while Davis rushed for 1,098 yards and 10 TDs on 98 carries. He also caught 21 passes for 376 receiving yards and five scores.
Pearce shredded 2A defenses all season long in throwing for 2,386 yards and 32 touchdowns. He also rushed 87 times for 768 yards and 11 rushing TD.
Britton closed out a stellar career in south Gadsden during which he rarely if ever left the field. Playing at running back, receiver and kick returner on offense, he finished the 2019 season with 1,675 combined yards and 19 total touchdowns. He also made his presence felt at linebacker with 67 tackles, three interceptions and five fumble recoveries.
