Another Class 5A selection was Etowah senior defensive end Coby Bryant, who led the 7-4 Blue Devils with 90 tackles, 24 for a loss. He also had 11 sacks and 15 quarterback pressures. 

In Class 4A, Sardis senior tackle Blaine Pruitt made the leap this season from honorable mention to first team.

Coosa Christian senior Ben Mills was named to the Class 1A team as an athlete. A standout two-way player, Mills had 159 tackles (27 for a loss), seven sacks and seven forced fumbles at defensive end. As a halfback, he rushed for 1,264 yards and 14 touchdowns while catching 27 passes for 517 yards and five scores. 

Two locals coaches received Coach of the Year honors, Southside’s Ron Daugherty in Class 5A and Gaston’s Swane Morris in Class 2A. Daugherty guided the Panthers to an undefeated regular season, a school-record 13 wins, their first region title in 33 years and a berth in the Class 5A state semifinals. After a four-year hiatus as coach at Scottsboro High after coaching Gaston for nine seasons, Morris led the 2013 Bulldogs to a 7-4 record and a berth in the state playoffs after Gaston went 0-10 in 2012.  

In addition, eight local players garnered honorable mention recognition.

Sparks had 72 tackles and 11 sacks at defensive end, while Armstrong racked up 140 tackles and three sacks at middle linebacker. At kicker, West made 5-of-10 field goals and was a perfect 55-for-55 on extra points.
