Western Albemarle couldn't complete a perfect 10-0 regular season. But the Warriors did win this year's Jefferson District football title.
And on Monday, the Warriors placed a league-high seven players -- led by quarterback Kent Henry -- on the All-Jefferson District team.
Henry was named the league's offensive player of the year. The junior finished the regular season with 2,128 passing yards, 1,233 rushing yards, and 42 total touchdowns (25 passing and 17 rushing), leading the Warriors to a 9-1 regular season.
Henry was joined on the first-team offense by his two wide receivers, senior Daniel Kujzak and junior Nic Drapanas. Junior defensive end Patrick Maupin and senior linebacker Tommy Mullin were both named to the first-team defense, along with Kuzjak (linebacker) and Drapanas (defensive back.).
Monticello also placed seven players on the all-JD first team: junior running back TJ Tillery; senior offensive lineman Sam Marshall; junior defensive lineman Tre Francis; junior Josh Malm at both punter and kick specialist; and senior Denzel Terry at both defensive back and return specialist.
Fluvanna senior linebacker Devin Goode was named the district's defensive player of the year. Goode finished the season with 126 total tackles -- including two sacks -- as well as four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and a pair of pass deflections. Goode was one of two Flucos named to the first team.
Charlottesville had five players named to the All-JD first team, including the district's player-at-large, senior Rashard Davis. Powhatan and Louisa each placed four players on the first team.
Western's Ed Redmond and Charlottesville's Eric Sherry were named the district's Division 3 co-coaches of the year. Redmond led the Warriors to a 9-1 record and the district title in his first season with the team, while Sherry guided the Black Knights to a 4-6 finish, and the program's first playoff appearance in a decade.
Louisa's Jon Meeks was voted the league's Division 4 coach of the year.
