Jakolby Longino Hightower

Jakolby Longino, holding ball, was one of 17 all-district picks for Hightower. 

It was a banner year for several of the area’s high school football teams that made deep playoff runs, and many players for those teams were recently named to all-district squads for their contributions.

District 20-6A champion Ridge Point had 26 selections, highlighted by J.R. Richardson as most valuable player, Frank Osagiede as the top defensive player and Keith Jackson as offensive MVP. Second-place Travis had 16 total selections, with  safety Cameron Oliver – who also played receiver and returned kicks for the Tigers – being named the district’s all-purpose player of the year.

Marshall, the District 11-5A champion and a state quarterfinalist, had 22 selections, including leading receiver Chris Marshall, tailback Rundrick Dudley and defensive backs Christian Jackson and Adari Haulcey.

In District 10-5A, Hightower had 17 selections, led by first-team offensive selections Jakolby Longino, Charles Shelling, Darian Jones and Caleb Douglass.
